Kings of Jews against God to the destruction of their people
Quran 14: 28-30
, which mean:
Will you [man] not consider those [kings and chiefs of Jews] who substituted ingratitude a instead of [gratitude for] God's grace, and they settled their people [in the afterlife] in the Home Barren [of all blessings]?
[Then God – be glorified – explained about what such ‘Home, Barren of all blessings’, is:]
[That is] Hell in which they are broiled; an evil abode [for them, in which they abide.]
And they set up [statues which they worshiped as] peers of God; that they might mislead [their people] from His way [leading to His Gardens.]
Say [Mohammed to the progeny of those Jews, contemporary to you]: "Enjoy [your life of the World with wealth and children], for [surely] your fate [in the Next Life] will be into the Fire [because you have followed the program of your kings and chiefs.]
So after had God rescued them from Pharaoh, and saved them from his enslaving, and settled them in the land of Canaan, and made them kings and chiefs, they denied all these bounties, and instead of commanding their people with God-fearing and righteousness, they started to compel them to worship the idols and to kill the prophets and the ascetics who enjoined righteousness, and they altered the Law of Prophet Moses.
This is in the Torah [included in the Old Testament], Book of Kings 1, chapter 12
thought to himself, “The kingdom will now likely revert to the house of David.
27 If these people go up to offer sacrifices at the temple of the Lord in Jerusalem, they will again give their allegiance to their lord, Rehoboam king of Judah. They will kill me and return to King Rehoboam.”
28 After seeking advice, the king made two golden calves. He said to the people, “It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”
29 One he set up in Bethel, and the other in Dan.
30 And this thing became a sin; the people came to worship the one at Bethel and went as far as Dan to worship the other.
31 Jeroboam built shrines on high places and appointed priests from all sorts of people, even though they were not Levites.
32 He instituted a festival in the eighth month, like the festival held in Judah, and offered sacrifices on the altar. This he did in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves he had made.”
Jeroboam son of Nebat
was a slave of Solomon; he was an Ephraimite from the city of Zeredah. Solomon put him in charge of the whole labor force of the tribes of Joseph. Then he rebelled against Solomon and went to Egypt, where the king of Egypt brought him close and offered to him; then when Solomon died, Jeroboam returned from Egypt to Jerusalem and fought against Rehoboam son of Solomon competing with him for the kingdom, which at last was divided between them.
