Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan centers his lecture around what is the benefit of learning about Firaun given his tyrannical and powerful nature, although he is old and weak.
We find that disbelievers are mentioned throughout the Qur’an but one among them who is the closest to Shaytan in terms of evil is Firaun. He is a special phenomenon that is mentioned repeatedly in the Qur’an. His heinous crimes were against Allah and humanity.
The meaning of the word – Estakhfaaf – is elaborated upon explicitly and how it is important in the context of the atrocities meted out by Firaun on his people so much so that they failed to retaliate in any manner even though their baby boys were being slaughtered in front of their eyes.
The focus of this talk is to delve within ourselves and fathom whether or not we have something of Firaun inside us and how we should be careful if we have such traits within us.
