Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography

One day when Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam) was 8 years of age, and sitting very respectfully in the presence of Fir’oun, the latter instructed a slave to open up his fighting cocks. When the first cock which was a massive bird, was released, it furiously flapped its wings and crowed very loudly. Immediately Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam) responded: “You have uttered the truth.” Astonished, Firoun said: “O my son! What did the cock say?” Musaa: “The cock recited the praises of Allah Ta’ala.” Fir’oun: “What relationship has the cock with this type of issue? My son, you are merely being witty and fabricating such stories.”

Is He really watching?

Akhlaq & Spirituality, Striding in Allah’s Shade - Enriching Lives

The age we live in, where we see countless rampant sins, one is left to wonder: is Allah truly watching over? It serves well to reminisce how Hazrat Luqman is instructing his son to always be mindful of Allah: 

“O my son!” (Said Hazrat Luqman), “If there be (but) the weight of a mustard seed and it were (hidden) in a rock, or (anywhere) in the heavens or on earth, Allah will bring it forth: for Allah understands the finest mysteries, (and) is well-acquained (with them).” [Luqman 31:16]
