Fear of Moses had been over

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)

فَأُلْقِىَ ٱلسَّحَرَةُ سُجَّدًا قَالُوٓا۟ ءَامَنَّا بِرَبِّ هَٰرُونَوَمُوسَىٰ 70

 قَالَ ءَامَنتُمْ لَهُۥ قَبْلَ أَنْ ءَاذَنَ لَكُمْ إِنَّهُۥ لَكَبِيرُكُمُ ٱلَّذِى عَلَّمَكُمُ ٱلسِّحْرَ فَلَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَٰفٍ وَلَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ فِىجُذُوعِ ٱلنَّخْلِ وَلَتَعْلَمُنَّ أَيُّنَآ أَشَدُّ عَذَابًا وَأَبْقَىٰ 71


70.  Then the wizards were (all) flung down prostrate, saying: We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.


71a.  (Pharaoh) said: Ye put faith in him before I give you leave. Lo! He is your chief who taught you magic.

70.  Fa-‘ulqiyas-saharatu  sujjadan  qaaluuu  ‘aamannaa  bi-Rabbi  Haaruuna  wa  Muusaa.


71a.  Qaala  ‘aamantum  lahuu  qabla  ‘an  ‘aazana  lakum.  ‘Innahuu  la-kabiiru-kumullazii  ‘allama-kumus-sihr.




‘As-saharatu – (the wizards), this word is plural of saahir, which is the subject from the word sa-ha-ra.


As soon as Moses (peace be upon him) received the Command of Allaah Almighty, entire condition of fear had been over from his mind. And he threw his staff on the earth, which became a serpent and it ate up all cords and staves which the wizards had thrown on the earth and which were being seen as snakes. The wizards had already decided after hearing the speech of Moses (peace be upon him) that this person cannot be a wizard. His (peace be upon him) thoughts are totally strange.


Then, when they saw a great miracle, they all fell prostrate, and a sound came out from their hearts: we believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses (peace be upon them).


Pharaoh beheld that it had been spoiled. Being angry; he said to the wizards: what does it mean that you have believed before my permission? Certainly you have partaken in conspiracy along with Moses (peace be upon them) against me, and it seems that he is your chief and you have learnt magic from him. Now you wish to rebel against me; following him. By influencing, you want to tempt other people also. Good! I am going to punish you as severely that you will lose your senses.
