Brutality and violence of Pharaoh increased day by day. At last Prophet Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them) prayed: They are proud of their wealth and property. Destroy they wealth and ruin them. They will never believe with true heart.


Allah Almighty replied: We have accepted your Prayers. You should not worry if appearance of its effect is delayed for some time. Every work is dependent on its fixed time. When the time will come, they will be destroyed. No deficiency should come in your stability and firmness due to delay in punishment. You should remain away from the path of those ignorant and foolish people and continue calling the people unto the Guidance.


Big forces have been performing their duties in the world, as though, this world is a wrestling ground of those forces. Islam teaches that Power of Allah Almighty is overcoming on the entire forces. He lets those forces work and causes to appear their consequence and effect. But some times; He stops also their influence on account of any expedience. And some times; He strengthens them more than normal. Disobedient people are destroyed by their stroke. But Allah Almighty informs before time; the ways of escaping; to the Obedient; by means of His Prophets (peace be upon them).
