‘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)

فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُم مُّوسَىٰ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا بَيِّنَٰتٍ قَالُوا۟ مَا هَٰذَآ إِلَّا سِحْرٌ مُّفْتَرًى وَمَا سَمِعْنَا بِهَٰذَا فِىٓ ءَابَآئِنَا ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ 36  وَقَالَ مُوسَىٰ رَبِّىٓ أَعْلَمُ بِمَن جَآءَ بِٱلْهُدَىٰ مِنْ عِندِهِۦ وَمَن تَكُونُ لَهُۥ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلدَّارِ إِنَّهُۥ لَا يُفْلِحُ ٱلظَّٰلِمُونَ 37

36.  But when Moses came unto them with Our Clear Tokens, they said: This is naught but invented magic. And we never heard of this among our fathers of old.


37.  And Moses said: My Lord is Best Aware of him who bringeth guidance from His Presence, and whose will be the sequel of the Home (of bliss). Lo! wrongdoers will not be successful.

36.  Falammaa  jaaa-‘ahum-Muusaa  bi-‘AayaatiNaa  Bayyinaatin  qaaluu  maa  haazaaa  ‘illaa  sihrum-muftaranw-wa  maa  sami’-naa  bihaazaa  fiii  ‘aabaaa-‘inal-‘awwaliin.


37.  Wa  Qaala  Muusaa  Rabbiii  ‘A’-lamu  biman  jaaa-‘a  bilhudaa  min  ‘IndiHii  wa  man  takuunu  lahuu  ‘aaqibatud-Daar.  ‘Innahuu  laa  yuflihuz-zaalimuun.



Muftaran – (invented, self-fabricated), it is a passive/past participle from the word ‘iftaraa’. It aims, “this all has been invented by him himself”.


‘Aaqibatud-Daar – (the Home of bliss).  ‘Aaqibatun means “the Last Day, consequence and result”. Daar means “place of living, abode, home”. It aims “at the End, there will be a good place for their living”.


Moses (peace be upon him) came to Pharaoh and said to him: I have brought a Message from Allaah Almighty for you. The Message is that “you should give up refractoriness and believe that He is your Lord, and you should not tyrannize the Children of Israel”. Pharaoh said: your claim that you are a Prophet; is your self-invented. Moses (peace be upon him) showed him miracles of Staff and a White Hand for his refutation. He said: this is a game of magic. For proving your invented Message, you have nothing to show except invented magic. We, even our forefathers, have never heard concerning Allaah, His Message and Miracles. This entire is quite a new thing.


Moses (peace be upon him) answered: Witness of my sayings is Allaah Almighty. He, My Lord, is more knowing (than we or you) of him who has come with guidance from Him and who will be successful in the Hereafter. Sequel of wrongdoers will not be good. They cannot prosper.
