(peace be upon Him) said to the wizards: You should throw first that, what you
want to throw. The wizards put their many bamboos, long poles, wooden pieces
and ropes on the earth and spread them. After a while, the people, standing
there, began to see all those things like snakes and serpents.

their order. Heads of all people bent due to shame, fear and confusion. Prophet
Moses (peace be upon Him) won the competition and the wizards were defeated
very badly. Pharaoh and his chiefs were so disgraced that they were not able to
show their faces anywhere.
