so Pharaoh went away, put together his plan, and then came to Moses.
Moses said to the magician summoned by Pharaoh, Woe to you do not invent a lie against Allah or he will exterminate you with a punishment, and he has failed to invent such false hood.

And Aaron had already told them before the return of Moses, oh my people, you are only being tested by it. And indeed, your Lord is the Most Merciful. So follow me and obey my order.

The previous why the verses nine and 10 from chapter 20. They contain many important lessons that I think we can all benefit from. In particular, we can focus on 10 important lessons that impact our family life. This does not limit of course, Business and Management applications, educational considerations, and other professional dimensions. First, I will begin by listing out the 10 important lessons which we will be focusing on then there will be a brief explanation of each lesson. They are as follows. life lesson number one family comes first. life lesson number two present danger is better than hidden danger.
a life lesson number three danger to one is better than exposing too many. life lesson number four, one person takes the final decision. life lesson number five leaders consult and explain their decision making process. life lesson number six, speak to all whom your decision impacts life lesson number seven, do not promise what is not assured. life lesson number eight maximize your benefit from danger. life lesson number nine prioritize, prioritize, prioritize. life lesson number 10 take responsibility.
life lesson number one, family comes first prioritization. Prophet Moses seeks to ensure his family's safety and comfort by asking them to wait for him in the cold darkness of the night. While he departs to investigate the source of the fire at a distance from them. never compromise your family and lead them into the unknown. life lesson number two, present danger is better than hidden danger. Assessing the odds, Prophet Moses knows that is dangerous to leave his family in the dark expanse of the desert in which they will last. Yet that is a less danger than walking into a campfire of what could possibly be a group of vegans, who would be a source of harm for the family.
The known danger is clear and evident. But at least this is predictable. life lesson number three, danger to one is better than exposing too many risk management profit Moses instinctively decides that the danger faced by Him alone is worth the risk of warmth and guidance to safety. Judgment is imperative when a possibility of danger exists. And the less exposure whether financially psychologically, spiritually and physically is better. life lesson number four, one person takes the final decision. effective leadership. In trying circumstances defined clear and unambiguous directions can be the difference between life and death, health and sickness, safety and tragedy. In
all decisions, especially within the household, a unified singular voice needs to provide leadership and direction. life lesson number five. Leaders consultant explain their decision making process. clarity. Prophet Moses explains in detail why he has made the decision to investigate the fire and to leave his family behind. It is reasoned, rationale and explicit. Often complaints arise about a decision being made without consultation and explanation that contradicts the established prophetic model. Decisions are not demands, and the authority to make them is not inherent to one party over another except by the virtue of trust. Trust is lost not by poor decisions, but by poor
consultation. life lesson number six. Speak to all whom your decisions impact communication. Prophet Moses spoke to Ali all his family and people, not just his wife. Taking counsel with your children in important decisions is a way of ensuring reciprocation when they reach and age of decision making ability for themselves. If you ignore their voices, then expect them to not to share it with you later. life lesson number seven do not promise what is not assured false assurances. Profit noses says maybe perhaps I can bring you and does not speak in the definitive nothing undermines the credibility of a parent with their children more than unfulfilled promises. The greatest wedge or
barrier between a husband and wife are vows that are not maintained and assurances that are not met. Speak the truth and do not embellish life lesson number eight. Maximize your benefit from assumes danger. Leveraging risk. Profit noses calculates what he stands to gain, warmth, light guidance out of the desert, returning with a flaming brand and more. Always seek maximum benefit even from precarious situations that others may view as a complete loss. life lesson number nine prioritize ranking needs Prophet Moses
speaks about warmth and a flaming brand to return with and provide comfort and light for his family. Before he speaks about finding their way, he understands the greatest need and seeks to fulfill it before other essentials. life lesson number 10. Taking responsibility, Prophet Moses says I can to legitimize his decision. He assumes responsibility for the decision and intends a positive outcome. Even though he does not guarantee it. family's decision disintegrate due to a lack of responsibility, standing up and assuming leadership equally necessitates being responsible when things go bad.
The Quran alludes to all human experiences and seeks to enrich the finite time we spend on this earth before returning to our maker, our Creator Most High. The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was commanded to follow his predecessors and take heed from their trials, while finding inspiration in their eventual divinely ordained triumph. Allah the Most High encourages us to look into the final word, the Quran, and take heed of its lessons and parables.
And We have certainly diversified in this Quran for the people from every kind of example, but man has ever been most of anything prone to dispute, Chapter 18 verse 54.
