Lesson # 903 - Fear that Moses will attract the masses very soon
Lesson # 903 from the Noble Quran
Fear that Moses will attract the masses very soon
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 113 to 116a of 206,
Section – 14 of 24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
the wizards came to Pharaoh, saying: Surely there will be a reward for us if we
answered: Yes, and surely ye shall be of those brought near (to me).
They said: O Moses! Either throw (first) or let us be the first
114. Qaala na-‘am
wa ‘innakum laminal-muqarrabiin.
115. Qaaluu yaa-Muusaaa
‘immaaa ‘an-tul-qiya wa ‘immaaa ‘an-nakuuna nahnul-mulqiin.
116a. Qaala ‘alquu.
We recited in the
previous verse that respectable courtiers of Pharaoh counseled him that Moses
(peace be upon Him) has shown a strange and unusual event of enchantment. Fear that
He (peace be upon Him) will be able to attract the masses very soon. And then,
it will become difficult for us to live here. It is better that His (peace be
upon Him) competition should be arranged with the wizards and He should be
defeated in common gathering.
It is commanded
that the people brought the old expert wizards together from everywhere. As soon
as they reached, they said to Pharaoh at first: We shall win with your good
fortune. Kindly confirm a tip and our labor compensation even now, which should
be given to us after success, so that our hearts may be encouraged and we
should try our best to succeed.
Yes, surely you shall be granted with heavy compensation and reward along with it;
that you shall be of those brought specially near to me and selected
individuals. The wizards were happy, turned unto Moses (peace be upon Him) and
said: Do you show first your jugglery or we show?
does not hear any other before his talk. He says: Why should I accept unnecessarily
any other as superior to me while I have everything? This stubbornness is found
in those people, who get accumulated with a lot of things of every kind and
army, and the people of lower class and the poor begin to consider them a
source of their respect by standing before them with folded hands. At that
time, as it might be possible, these rich people begin to determine for establishing
their power of influence forever. And they try to defeat the opponent of their dignity
and majesty as it could be.
In the story of
Pharaoh and his chiefs, an utter lesson exists for such people. A time comes
when any such power appears with the command of Allah Almighty, which is more
powerful than their wealth, equipage and army, and due to which their entire
game is over. Truly: The fox knows much but more
knows the one who catches him.
