The Story of Moosa (Moses peace be upon him) and Firon (Pharoah) : (Post 2)

Well, we will confront you with magic to match yours! Let us fix a day when both of us should meet, neither we nor you shall fail to keep it, in a place where both shall have even chances."[58]

Moses replied:
"Let it be the Day of Festival and let the people be assembled before noon."[59]


Pharoah then withdrew, concerted his plan and came back.[60]

Moses addressed
them saying: "Woe to you for this challenge! Do not forge a lie against Allah by calling it a magic, lest He destroy you by a scourge; for whosoever forges a lie will indeed be disappointed."[61]


Hearing this, they debated their case among themselves, whispering to one another.[62] Finally they said: "These two (Moses and Haroon) are certainly expert magicians who intend to drive you out from your land with their magic and to do away with your best traditions.[63] Therefore, muster up all
devices and face them with a united front."




Finally when the day of confrontation came, Pharoah said: " Whoever comes out victorious this day shall prevail."[64]

The magicians said: "O Moses! Will you throw down first or shall we?"[65]

Moses replied: "Go ahead, throw down first."

Suddenly it appeared to Moses as if their cords and staffs were moving about because of their magic,[66] and Moses conceived fear within himself.[67]

We said: "Do not be afraid! You will surely come out on top.[68]

Throw that which is in your right hand. It will swallow up all that they have produced.
What they have produced is nothing but a magician’s trick, and a magician can never succeed against a miracle no matter how skillful he may be."[69]


When the magicians saw the serpent of Moses swallowing all their display, being professionals they knew that it was not magic, so the magicians humbled themselves by prostrating and said: "We believe in the Lord of Haroon and Moses."[70]



Pharoah said: "How do you dare to believe in Him without my permission? This man must be your master, who taught you witchcraft. Well, I will cut off your hands and feet on alternate sides and crucify you on trunks of palm-trees; then you will know which one of us can give a more terrible and more lasting punishment."[71]

The magicians replied: "We can never prefer you, rather we prefer the miracle which we have witnessed and Him
Who has created us. Therefore do whatever you will; you can only punish us in this worldly life.[72]

As for us, we have believed in our Lord so that He may forgive us our sins and the magic you have forced us to practice. Better is the ever lasting reward of
Allah."[73]



Surely he who will come to his Lord as a sinner shall be consigned to Hell
- wherein he shall neither die nor live.
[74]


While he who will come to Him as a
believer and has done good deeds shall have the highest ranks[75] - Gardens of
Eden, beneath which rivers flow, to live therein forever; such is the reward of those who purify themselves from evil.
[76]


We sent Our revelation to Moses, saying: "Set forth with my servants at night and strike a dry path for them through the sea without fear of being overtaken by Pharoah
and without any fear while passing through the sea."[77]

Pharoah followed them withhis armies but the waters completely overwhelmed them and covered them up.[78]


Thus Pharoah misled his people instead of guiding them aright.[79]

O Children of Israel! We delivered you from your enemy, We fixed a time to grant you The Torah on the right side of Mount Tur and We sent down to you Manna (sweet dish) and Salva (quail meat)[80] - saying: "Eat of the good things We have provided for your sustenance and do not transgress, lest you should incur My wrath, and whoever
incurs My wrath, is surely bound to perish,[81]

but the one who repents, becomes a
believer, does good deeds and follows the Right Way shall be forgiven."
[82]


[Meanings of Surah: Al-TAHA,
Verses 1-82
The Holy Quran.]
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."
