Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan acquaints us with the lessons imparted to us from an amazing individual that fascinates our imagination in the Qur’an and he is Musa AS. His narrative is mentioned at around 70 places in the Qur’an and every time we hear it’s mind-boggling.
Prophet Musa (AS) is the most commonly mentioned Prophet in the Noble Quran. Prophet Musa AS was born at the time of Fir’aun. Muslims believed in all Messengers of Allah SWT and Noble Books which were revealed to them. Prophet Musa (AS) was sent to the people of Israel to make them worship Allah SWT. Allah (SWT) says that the story of Musa (AS) and Firaun in the Quran is the truth. It is a story of political conspiracy and of oppression that knew no bounds. In the Noble Qur’an, Allah SWT says:
“We recite to you some of the news of Musa and Firaun in truth, for a people who believe. Verily, Firaun exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them; killing their sons and letting their females live. Verily, he was of those who committed great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants.”
Ustadh also shares with us tidbits that belong to Surah Taha where the dialogue between Musa AS and Firaun is discussed and elucidated upon. Elaborating on various Ayahs of the Qur’an via the stories shared with us, in one such instance – we are intrigued as to who Musa AS is getting to meet? Allah! This is a conversation that is of epic proportions in human history. A conversation between Allah and human being and the conversation was initiated by Allah and the human was called by his name directly! Musa! This part of the Ayah is exemplary with regard to the conversation Musa AS just had. If there’s one thing Musa AS is never going to forget, it’s this.
What does Allah say in this conversation? Allah says, even you! If you really want to remember me, establish Salah. Can you imagine the importance of Salah now with respect to remembering Allah! Next comes the secondary purpose which reminds us and reasserts the impending fact that the hour is coming. The Judgement day is coming.
