Command to go unto Pharaoh

Chapter TAA-HAA – 20

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


وَٱضْمُمْ يَدَكَ إِلَىٰ جَنَاحِكَ تَخْرُجْ بَيْضَآءَ مِنْ غَيْرِ سُوٓءٍ ءَايَةً أُخْرَىٰ 22

  لِنُرِيَكَ مِنْ ءَايَٰتِنَا ٱلْكُبْرَى 23

 ٱذْهَبْ إِلَىٰ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّهُۥطَغَىٰ 24

22.  And thrust thy hand within thine armpit, it will come forth white without hurt. (That will be) another token –


23.  That We may show thee (some) of Our Greater Portents.


24.  Go thou unto Pharaoh! Lo! He hath transgressed (the bounds).

22.  Wazmum  yadaka  ‘ilaa  janaahika  takhruj  bayzaaa-‘a  min  gayri  suuu-‘in  ‘aayatan  ‘ukhraa.


23.  Li-Nuriyaka  min  ‘AayaatiNal-Kubraa.


24.  ‘Izhab  ‘ilaa  Fir-‘awna  ‘in-nahuu  tagaa.


(Section 1)




After that, it was commanded: Thrust your hand within your armpit! Moses (peace be upon him) obeyed the command. When the hand was withdrawn from the armpit, it was white; glittering like sun, without the reason of any disease but as a miracle. Then it was commanded: It is another Token which has been bestowed to you. After it, some more and greater portents will be shown.


Then it was commanded: Now you should go unto Pharaoh (who was a king of Egypt) because he has gripped up his loins to violate, and has been oppressing Our helpless servants unreasonably.


Found from it is that without correction of faiths and good deeds, if any person shows unusual deeds too, even then he cannot be a Prophet. First condition of Prophet-hood is correction of manners and habits. Claim of Prophet-hood does not suit to the slave of desires, when in the fact; someone claims that he is a prophet. Prophet-hood and Messenger-hood are very great appointments, whereas no one can be accepted as even a reformer or adviser till the time he does not come out with credit on the standard of humanity.


There is no chance of claiming Prophet-hood and Messenger-hood after Muhammad, the last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Moreover, before accepting any person as a saint, reformer or spiritual guide etc. it is necessary to see that his faiths are correct, standard of his manners is acceptable, he admits that Allaah (God) is One and Muhammad is the last Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), and from his deeds; it can be found that his faiths are correct. Without these characteristics, whether someone is very intelligent; he can fly in the air; can control the air or can walk on the water, he can never be able to become a guide of the mankind or be called a great man.
