Lesson # 905 - Power, wealth, pomp and show will not be useful in hard times
Lesson # 905 from the Noble Quran
Power, wealth, pomp and show will not be useful in hard times
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 120 to 1123 of 206,
Section – 14 of 24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
the wizards fell down prostrate.
They said: We believe in the Lord of the Worlds-
Lord of Moses and Aaron.
Pharaoh said: Ye believe in Him before I give you leave! Lo! this is
the plot that ye have plotted in the city that ye may drive its people hence.
So ye shall come to know!
wizards saw that the Staff of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) swallowed up
their ropes and poles etc. after putting it on the ground and its becoming a
big serpent, they believed that these both Brothers were speaking the Truth
that there is one Lord of the Worlds, Who preserves and nourishes the world and
That is our Lord too. Everything is in His Omnipotence. None can fight against
His Power and Strength. They observed that Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) put
them to shame openly before Pharaoh and he watched. He could not help them, and
then their eyes were opened.
At once, entire
wizards fell down prostrate spontaneously and said: We have belied in That Lord
of the Worlds, Whom Prophet Moses and Aaron (peace be upon Them) say Their Lord
and turned from Pharaoh. Looking this situation, Pharaoh became mad with rage
that his obedient servants have been crooked. He said: What is this? Why did
you believe without my permission? Certainly, you had planned already with
Moses (peace be upon Him) a conspiracy: that we should be defeated from You (Moses)
in this arena, filled with the people, gathered by Pharaoh. And we along with
you will drive out Pharaoh openly and his companions. And then, we shall make
you our king and we shall be your respectable courtiers and official. Then
Pharaoh said: Good! Where will you go? You will now be known, whether am I powerful
or the Lord of Moses (peace be upon Him) is more powerful?
In the world, those
people, who consider that only power of influence, wealth and property, pomp
and show are everything, they know that whatever is being done by anyone else,
that is only for the purpose that; he should take possession himself on all
those things by removing us. They consider that the Truth and the Right is
nothing for which, anyone should do something. It is true that thinking above
the world is possible only by the spiritual people.
