FIR’OUN, HADHRAT MUSA AND THE TAQDEER OF ALLAH Part 5


Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography

Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam) had not yet been appointed the Nabi. In the community he was regarded with honour and respect. Everyone thought of him as the son of Fir’oun. One day, at the time of Qailoolah (the midday siesta) when all the people were having their nap. Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam) happened to be in the marketplace. Referring to this episode, the Qur’aan Majeed says: “He entered the city when its people were taking a nap…..” He found two persons fighting with each other. One was a member of Bani Israeel, and the other one was a Qibti (the nation of Fir’oun). The Bani Israaeli implored Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam) to assist him. Hadhrat Musaa (alayhis salaam) stepped forward and delivered one devastating punch to the Qibti who forthwith fell down dead.

Hazrat Musa (A.S), History & Biography

“Verily, Fir’oun exalted himself (with arrogance and oppression) in the land (Egypt), and he classified its population into different groups (high and low classes).

He had suppressed one group (Bani Israaeel) of the population,

slaughtering their sons and leaving their daughters alive. Verily, he was among the anarchists.”

THE TREATMENT (Part 06)


Beliefs & Practices, Masturbation - A disastrous problem faced by the youth

11. DU’A

Why cannot du’â be a treatment? Du’â is a guaranteed way of seeking a cure from that Being who is Kind, Merciful, Forgiving. Du’â means to implore and beg before that Being who is All Powerful and by whose command everything happens.

Verily du’â is the most beneficial treatment and it has many benefits, especially when a person earnestly makes those duâs which have been narrated from Nabi (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) by sincerely turning towards Allah Ta’ala , considering the times of acceptance. Allah Ta’ala says: “Call Me, I will answer you.” (Sura Ghafir, ayah 80)

Hazrat Ibn Abbaas R.A. reports that discussing the black stone Rasulullah Sal’am said: “Verily Allah shall raise it up on the day of Qiyaamat: “it shall have two eyes with, which it sees and a tongue with which it shall speak, bearing witness in favor of everyone who did kiss it with truth and faith.”

Enduring the inconveniences of the Hajj journey


Chapter 03 - Enduring the inconveniences of the Hajj journey, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj)

Any journey has its difficulty and sufferings. Our shariat having taken that into consideration allowed that any Salaat composing four Rakaats should be reduced to two while on travel. Rasulullah Sal’am himself said about travel: “travel is a portion of hell-fire.” Therefore traveling means inconvenience and difficulty. So come what may any traveler to the Holy Places will undergo some suffering enroute. But bearing in mind that this journey to the Kaaba is a journey in search of the Beloved One, one should behave on the road like a lover seeking the beloved who awaits him. So whether he hears abusive language directed at himself or whether he is being sworn at or whether stones are cast on him, no matter what difficulty he encounters the Haji should go ahead to the destination undeterred by any such obstacle. And by tolerating all sufferings and hardships with patience, ones reward is increased, (in case where such hardships are not contrary in effect to the interests of our Deen and health).

63) Feeling Secure from Allah’s Devising


Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah, Most High says,

{Until, in the midst of their enjoyment of our gifts, on a sudden We called then to account, when lot They were plunged in despair!} (Al-An’am: 44)

This means that the punishment occurs suddenly while they are heedless. Al-Hasan said, whoever is blessed but unaware of Allah’s decision he is heedless, and whoever is afflicted but unaware of Allah’s trials is also heedless. Then he read the above Ayah and said, these people are put into devising as they got all what they need and then taken suddenly.
