Stage – 2, Verse – 128 of 206, Section – 15 of 24 (Part – 9)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|Moses said unto his people: Seek help in Allah and endure. Lo! the earth is Allah’s. He giveth it for an inheritance to whom He will. And lo! the sequel is for those who keep their duty (unto Him).||Qaala Muusaa li-qawmihista-‘ii-nuu BIllaahi wasbiruu. ‘Innal-‘arza LIllaahi, Yuurisu-haa many-yashaaa-‘u min ‘ibaadiH. Wal- ‘aaqibatu lil- Muttaqiin.|
When courtiers of Pharaoh said to him, he gave his judgment about how to fight against Moses (peace be upon Him). He said that while the people of Israel will not be kept able to rise, then what will do alone Moses (peace be upon Him)? He had done so earlier. It was his order that the sons of the Children of Israel were used to slay, whereas their women were kept living. With the Omnipotence of Allah Almighty, Moses (peace be upon Him) was born in the same condition and was brought up in the house of Pharaoh. Mention of the circumstances of His (peace be upon Him) birth will come in Surahs (Chapters) Taa-Haa and Qasas. It has been described in this verse: What kind of guidance did give Moses (peace be upon Him) to His nation for coming in front of Pharaoh?
It is commanded that Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) said to His nation: Fall prostrate before Allah Almighty and ask for help in this difficult situation and endure with steadfastness, which falls to yours lot. Allah Almighty has given power to Pharaoh and his people at this time. His government is established on this piece of land. Actual Owner of the earth is Allah Almighty. None can take possession anywhere without His Permission. He gives power to whom He desires for some time due to His own philosophy and expedience. If now, Pharaoh tyrannizes and does not keep the servants of Allah Almighty in comfort and ease without thinking about their genealogy and breed, and oppressed people are helpless. They can do nothing. There is only one way for them that they should know their Lord, Creator and God Almighty – Allah, the Most High, and be saved from His disobedience and they should keep their duty unto Him. They should fear from His wrath, seek forgiveness and repent. They should do good works. Certainly at last, such people will overcome upon their enemies. And Allah Almighty will bestow them with power and influence after snatching from the tyrants and cruel people. Allah Almighty has established the methods to test His servants. There has been similar and will keep happening so, until the Will of God Almighty.
The Prophets and Messengers of Allah Almighty (peace be upon Them) used to tell the same way to the human kind during every times that; if you wish to get deliverance from the tyrants, you should grip up your loins to obey the Commands of Allah Almighty and beg for help from Him only. Be steadfast, you should tolerate with courteous, kind and pleasant; while you are going Straight Forward whether, how much disasters, calamities and troubles come before you. Do never accept defeat from the tyrants, fight against them with full resistance as it may be possible. At last, it will be the result that entire troubles will be finished and the tyrants will be ruined.
