The news of Moses (as) and Pharaoh in truth As narrated by Allah (swt) Part II
Allah (swt) speaks to Musa (as) "Go, both of you, to Pharaoh, verily, he has transgressed all bounds in disbelief and disobedience and behaved as an arrogant and as a tyrant. And speak to him mildly, perhaps he may accept admonition or fear Allah." They said: "Our Lord! Verily! We fear lest he should hasten to punish us or lest he should transgress all bounds against us.“ (20:43-45)
He (Allah) said: "Fear not, Verily! I am with you both, Hearing and Seeing. So go you both to him, and say: "Verily, we are Messengers of your Lord, so let the children of Israel go with us, and torment them not; indeed, we have come with a sign from your Lord! And peace will be upon him who follows the guidance! (20:46-47).
Musa’s (as) Mission Invite Pharaoh to worship Allah (swt) Free the Children of Israel
Musa’s (as) staff could change into a serpent His right hand would shine if he pressed it
Pharaoh: “Show Us Your Signs!” Moses said: "Even if I bring you something manifest and convincing." Pharaoh said; "Bring it forth, then, if you are of the truthful!" So Moses threw his stick, and behold, it was a serpent, manifest. And he drew out his hand, and behold, it was white to all beholders! (26:30-33)
Fears of Pharaoh Fear of losing his traditions Fear of losing his kingship
Pharaoh’s Anger Pharaoh said: "Believe you in him (Moses) before I give you permission? Verily! He is your chief who taught you magic. So I will surely cut off your hands and feet on opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you on the trunks of palm trees, and you shall surely know which of us (I Pharaoh,) or the Lord of (Moses) (Allah), can give the severe and more lasting torment.“ (20:71)
Steadfastness of Magicians They said: "We prefer you not over the clear signs that have come to us, and to Him (Allah) Who created us. So decree (regarding) this life of the world. Verily! We have believed in our Lord, that He may forgive us our faults, and the magic to which you did compel us. And Allah is better as regards reward in comparison to your reward, and more lasting “ (20:72-73)
Wise Choices of the Magicians Recognised the truth, the power of Allah (swt) Believed and accepted faith immediately Accepted their mistake and asked for Allah’s forgiveness Did not give in to Pharaoh’s threats Recognised that Allah’s (swt) rewards are better
Allah’s (swt) Approval But whoever comes to Him (Allah) as a believer and has done righteous good deeds, for such are the high ranks - Everlasting Gardens under which rivers flow, wherein they will abide forever; such is the reward of those who purify themselves (20:75- 76).
"O Haman! Build me a tower that I may arrive at the ways, - the ways of the heavens, and I may look upon the Ilah (God) of Moses but verily, I think him to be a liar.“ (40:36-37)
Allah’s (swt) Disapproval Thus it was made fair seeming, in Pharaoh's eyes, the evil of his deeds, and he was hindered from the Right Path, and the plot of Pharaoh led to nothing but loss and destruction for him. (40:37).
Pharaoh’s Conclusion "O chiefs! I know not that you an ilah (a god) other than me." (28:38)
The Plot The Ministers asked: "Will you leave Moosa and his people to cause corruption in the land and to forsake your gods?” Pharaoh said: “We will kill their sons and spare their women, and verily we have a strong hold over them.“ (Surah Al A’araf 7: 127)
“And Fir’awn said, ‘Let me kill Moosa and let him call on his Lord. I fear he will change your religion or spread mischief in the land.’” – Surah Ghafir 40:26
A Secret Friend “And a believer from among the Pharoah’s people who concealed his faith said, ‘Will you kill a man because he says my Lord is Allah? And verily he brought to you clear signs from your Lord. And if he is a liar, then on him will be his lie, and if he is truthful, then some of what he threatens will befall you. Indeed, Allah does not guide any excessive liar. – (Surah Ghafir 40: 28)
One should speak up in order to protect another person’s life and honour.
“And We sent Moosa (as) with Our Signs and a clear authority to Pharoah, Haman andQaroon but they said, ‘A lying magician.’” (Sura Ghafir 40: 23-24)
“And certainly We seized Pharoah’s people with years of scarcity, and diminution of fruits, that they might be mindful. So when good came to them, they said, ‘this is our due’, but if evil afflicted them, they ascribed it to Musa and those with him. Whereas surely their misfortune was in the Hand of Allah but most of them do not know. (Surah Al-A’araaf 7: verse 130-131)
“And they said, ‘Whatever sign you bring to us to enchant us, we will not believe in you.’ So We sent on them the flood, the locusts, the lice, the frogs, and the blood, detailed signs, but they became arrogant and were a sinful people.” (Surah Al A’araaf: verse 132-133)
Appeal of Egyptians " O Moses! Invoke your Lord for us because of His Promise to you. IF you will remove the punishment from us, we indeed shall believe in you, and we shall let the children of Israel go with you." –(Ch 7:134)
Breaking of Promises But when We removed the punishment from them to a fixed term, which they had to reach, behold! They broke their word! (7:135)
“And we revealed to Musa, “Depart with My slaves by night, for you will be pursued.” Then Pharaoh sent heralds to all the cities, “These are only a small band and they have surely enraged us, and we surely are cautiously on our guard.” And so We expelled them from gardens and springs, and from treasures and fine dwelling. Thus we bequeathed them upon the children of Israel. So they pursued them at sunrise. (Surah Ash-Shuara 26: 52-60)
‘And when the two groups saw each other, the people of Musa said, “Surely we are overtaken.” He said, “No I, indeed my Lord is with me, He will guide me.” So we revealed to Musa, “Strike the sea with your staff.” And it parted and each separatr part became like a mountain. Then We brought near the others [Pharaoh and his people] to that place. And We saved Musa and all those with him. Then We drowned the others. Verily, there is a sign in this, yet most of them are not believers. Verily, your Lord is the All-Mighty, the All-Merciful.” (Surah-AshShura 26: 61-68)
Allah’s (swt) Justice Now (you believe) while you refused to believe before and you were one of the mufsideen (evildoers, corrupts, etc.). So this day We shall deliver your dead body out from the sea that you maybe a sign to those who come after you! And verily, many among mankind are heedless or our Ayah (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.). (10:90-92)
