The Story of Moosa (Moses peace be upon him) and Firon (Pharoah) : (Post 1)

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.


Tua Ha.[1] We have not sent down this Qur’an to put you to trouble,[2] but as a reminder to those who fear Allah.[3] This is a revelation from Him Who has created the earth and the lofty Heavens,[4] the Beneficent (Allah) Who is firmly established on the throne of authority,[5] to Him belongs whatever is in the Heavens and in the earth, and all that lies between them, and all that is beneath the soil.[6] The One to Whom you need not speak aloud; for He knows what is said in secret and what is yet more hidden.[7] He is Allah! There is no deity worthy of worship except Him! To Him belong the most beautiful Names.[8]



Have you heard the story of Moses?[9] When he saw a fire, he said to his family:
"Wait! I saw a fire. I may be able to bring some fire or find someone beside the fire to guide us towards the right direction."[10] When he reached there, he was called: "O Moses![11] In fact, I am your Lord! Take off your shoes, you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.[12] I have chosen you, so listen to what I am about to reveal.[13] It is Me, Allah; there is none worthy of worship except Me, so worship Me and establish Salah for My remembrance.[14] The final Hour is sure to come, I choose to keep it hidden, so that every soul may be rewarded according to its efforts.[15] Therefore, let not any, who does not believe in this fact and follow his own desires, turn your away, lest you should perish."[16]


"O Moses what is in your right hand?"[17]

Moses replied: "It is my staff; I lean on it, I beat down fodder with it for my flocks and I have also other uses for it."[18]

Allah said
"Toss it down O Moses."[19] So he tossed it down and saw that it became a snake active in motion.[20] Allah said: "Catch it and don’t be afraid, We shall change it to its original shape.[21] Now put your hand under your armpit, it shall become shining white without hurting you, this will be another Sign.[22] These miracles are given to you, in order to show you some of Our Great Signs.[23] Now go to Pharoah (Pharaoh) for he has indeed transgressed all bounds." [24]



Moses prayed: "O Lord! Open my heart,[25] ease my task[26] and remove the
impediment from my speech[27] so that people may understand what I say[28] and grant me a minister from my family;[29] Haroon my brother.[30] Grant me strength through him[31] and let him share my task,[32] so that we may glorify You frequently[33] and mention You often;[34] for You are the One Who has always been watching over us."[35]



Allah responded: "Your request is granted, O Moses.[36] We had indeed bestowed a favor on you before,[37] when We revealed Our will to your mother saying:[38] 'Put your child into the chest and throw the chest into the river.
The river will cast him on to the bank and he will be picked up by one who is an
enemy to Me and an enemy to him.' I made you an object of love and so arranged things that you may be brought up under My supervision.[39]


Recall when your sister went to them and said: 'May I tell you of the one who can take care of this child?’
Thus did We return you back to your mother to comfort her eyes and that she might not grieve. Again when you killed a man, We saved you from great distress and We tested you through various trials. You stayed a number of years with the people of Median. Now you have come here per Our pre-ordainment, O Moses.[40] I have molded you for My service.[41] You and your brother should go with My Signs and do not neglect to mention Me.[42] Go both of you to Pharoah, for he has indeed transgressed all bounds.[43] Speak to him in gentle words; perhaps he may take heed of the reminder or fear Our punishment."[44]


Moses and Haroon said: "Our Lord! We fear that he may behave towards us unjustly or may cross all bounds."[45]

Allah said: "Do not be afraid, I shall be with you both. I hear everything and see
everything.[46] So go to him and say 'Surely we both are Messengers of your Lord.
Let the Children of Israel go with us and oppress them no more. We have brought you a Sign from your Lord; may peace be upon him who follows the guidance.[47]
Indeed it has been revealed to us that the scourge will fall on those who deny this fact and turn away’."[48] 20:[25-48]



When Moses and Haroon went to Pharoah and delivered this message , he said:
"Well, who is your Lord O Moses?"[49]

Moses replied: "Our Lord is He Who has given a distinctive form to all creatures and then rightly guided them."[50]

Pharoah asked: "What do you say about the condition of previous generations?"[51] Moses replied: "That knowledge is with my Lord, duly recorded in a Book. He neither makes
a mistake nor does He forget."[52] He is the One Who has made the earth a cradlefor you, traced the roads on it for you to walk on; and sends down water from the sky with which We produce pairs of various kinds of vegetation[53] - eat from these yourselves and pasture your cattle. Surely there are Signs in it for those who use their brains.[54]
We have created you from the earth, into it We shall return you and from it We shall bring you back to life once again.[55]


We showed Pharoah all kinds of Our Signs, but he denied them and gave no heed.[56]

He said: "Have you come to drive us out of our land with your magic O Moses?[57]
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."
