Prophet Musa (Moses)
Story of Musa
In the land of Eygpt, Pharoah was oppressing community of people who worshiped one God. He gave
instructions to his army to slay the boys and spare the women. But the mother of Moses saved her child by
casting him into the river. The Pharoah army found him and he was spared and adopted by Phaorah's wife Asiya.
Musa grew up to be a man of wisdom and knowledge. He became the chosen Prophet of God to lead the nation to
believe in one God - Allah.
Lo! Pharaoh exalted himself in the earth and made its people castes. A tribe among them he oppressed, killing their sons and sparing their women. Lo! he was of those who work corruption.
The Story - Qasas verse 4
And we inspired the mother of Moses, saying: Suckle him and when thou fearent for him, then cast him into the
river and fear not nor grieve. Lo! We shall bring him back unto thee and shall make him (one) of our messengers.
The Story - Qasas verse 7
God gave Moses nine signs:
And verily We gave unto Moses nine tokens, clear proofs (of Allah's sovereignty). The Children of Israel - Banii Is'raa-ii verse 101
God speaks to Musa in Mount Tuwa:
When Moses said unto his household: Lo! I see afar off a fire; I will bring you tidings thence, or bring to you a borrowed flame tha tye may warm yourselves. But when he reached it, he was called, saying : Blessed is whosoever is in the fire and whosoever is round about it! and glorified be Allah,the Lord of the Worlds! O Moses ! Lo! it is I Allaah, the Mighty, the Wise. The Ant - Al Naml verse 8-9
Allah said: And throw down thy staff!, But when he saw it writhing as it were a demon, he turned to flee headlong;
(but it was said unto him): O Moses! Fear not! Lo1 the emissaries fear not in My presence.
The Ant - Al Naml verse 10
And throw your stick!" But when he saw it moving as if it were a snake, he turned in flight, and looked not back.
(It was said): "O Moses! Draw near, and fear not. Verily, you are of those who are secure".
The Story - Al Qasas verse 31
God then instructed Moses to put his hand inside his cloak, He revealed to him another sign of his magnificence and omnipotence.
Signs, which Moses would need in his coming mission, proof for those who are disobedient and rebellious.
"Insert your hand into the opening of your garment, it will come out white without disease, and draw your hand close to your side to be free from fear (that which you suffered from the snake, and also by that your hand will return to its original state). These are two signs, (miracles, evidences, proofs) from your Lord to Pharaoh and his chiefs. Verily, they are the people who are rebellious, and disobedient towards God."
The Story - Al Qasas verse 32
Pharaoh when he asked Moses to show him a sign if he is truthful, in response Moses shows Pharaoh and his
people the sign of his staff which turned into a serpent
The Heights - Al A'raaf verse 107
The Heights - Al A'raaf verse 108
“We then afflicted Pharaoh's people with years of trial and shortage of crops, that they may take heed.”
The Heights - Al A'raaf verse 130
The Heights - Al A'raaf verse 132-133
So We revealed to Musa, "Strike the sea with your staff." And it split in two, each part like a towering cliff.
And We brought the others right up to it. We rescued Musa and all those who were with him. Then We drowned the rest.
There is certainly a Sign in that yet most of them are not believers.
Truly your Lord is the Almighty, the Most Merciful.
Shu'araa - The Poets verse 63-68
