In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
(19:51) And mention in the Book, Moses. Indeed, he was chosen, and he was a messenger and a prophet.
(19:52) And We called him from the side of the mount at [his] right and brought him near, confiding [to him].
(19:53) And We gave him out of Our mercy his brother Aaron as a prophet.
(21:48) And We had already given Moses and Aaron the criterion and a light and a reminder for the righteous
(21:49) Who fear their Lord unseen, while they are of the Hour apprehensive.
(28:3) We recite to you from the news of Moses and Pharaoh in truth for a people who believe.
(28:4) Indeed, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, oppressing a sector among them, slaughtering their [newborn] sons and keeping their females alive. Indeed, he was of the corrupters.
(28:5) And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders and make them inheritors
(28:6) And establish them in the land and show Pharaoh and [his minister] Haman and their soldiers through them that which they had feared.
(28:7) And We inspired to the mother of Moses, “Suckle him; but when you fear for him, cast him into the river and do not fear and do not grieve. Indeed, We will return him to you and will make him [one] of the messengers.”
(28:8) And the family of Pharaoh picked him up [out of the river] so that he would become to them an enemy and a [cause of] grief. Indeed, Pharaoh and Haman and their soldiers were deliberate sinners.
(28:9) And the wife of Pharaoh said, “[He will be] a comfort of the eye for me and for you. Do not kill him; perhaps he may benefit us, or we may adopt him as a son.” And they perceived not.
(28:10) And the heart of Moses’ mother became empty [of all else]. She was about to disclose [the matter concerning] him had We not bound fast her heart that she would be of the believers.
(28:11) And she said to his sister, “Follow him”; so she watched him from a distance while they perceived not.
(28:12) And We had prevented from him [all] wet nurses before, so she said, “Shall I direct you to a household that will be responsible for him for you while they are to him [for his upbringing] sincere?”
(28:13) So We restored him to his mother that she might be content and not grieve and that she would know that the promise of Allah is true. But most of the people do not know.
(28:14) And when he attained his full strength and was [mentally] mature, We bestowed upon him judgement and knowledge. And thus do We reward the doers of good.
(28:15) And he entered the city at a time of inattention by its people and found therein two men fighting: one from his faction and one from among his enemy. And the one from his faction called for help to him against the one from his enemy, so Moses struck him and [unintentionally] killed him. [Moses] said, “This is from the work of Satan. Indeed, he is a manifest, misleading enemy.”
(28:16) He said, “My Lord, indeed I have wronged myself, so forgive me,” and He forgave him. Indeed, He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.
(28:17) He said, “My Lord, for the favor You bestowed upon me, I will never be an assistant to the criminals.”
(28:18) And he became inside the city fearful and anticipating [exposure], when suddenly the one who sought his help the previous day cried out to him [once again]. Moses said to him, “Indeed, you are an evident, [persistent] deviator.”
(28:19) And when he wanted to strike the one who was an enemy to both of them, he said, “O Moses, do you intend to kill me as you killed someone yesterday? You only want to be a tyrant in the land and do not want to be of the amenders.”
(28:20) And a man came from the farthest end of the city, running. He said, “O Moses, indeed the eminent ones are conferring over you [intending] to kill you, so leave [the city]; indeed, I am to you of the sincere advisors.”
(28:21) So he left it, fearful and anticipating [apprehension]. He said, “My Lord, save me from the wrongdoing people.”
(28:22) And when he directed himself toward Madyan, he said, “Perhaps my Lord will guide me to the sound way.”
(28:23) And when he came to the well of Madyan, he found there a crowd of people watering [their flocks], and he found aside from them two women driving back [their flocks]. He said, “What is your circumstance?” They said, “We do not water until the shepherds dispatch [their flocks]; and our father is an old man.”
(28:24) So he watered [their flocks] for them; then he went back to the shade and said, “My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need.”
(28:25) Then one of the two women came to him walking with shyness. She said, “Indeed, my father invites you that he may reward you for having watered for us.” So when he came to him and related to him the story, he said, “Fear not. You have escaped from the wrongdoing people.”
(28:26) One of the women said, “O my father, hire him. Indeed, the best one you can hire is the strong and the trustworthy.”
(28:27) He said, “Indeed, I wish to wed you one of these, my two daughters, on [the condition] that you serve me for eight years; but if you complete ten, it will be [as a favor] from you. And I do not wish to put you in difficulty. You will find me, if Allah wills, from among the righteous.”
(28:28) [Moses] said, “That is [established] between me and you. Whichever of the two terms I complete – there is no injustice to me, and Allah, over what we say, is Witness.”
(28:29) And when Moses had completed the term and was traveling with his family, he perceived from the direction of the mount a fire. He said to his family, “Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire. Perhaps I will bring you from there [some] information or burning wood from the fire that you may warm yourselves.”
(28:30) But when he came to it, he was called from the right side of the valley in a blessed spot – from the tree, “O Moses, indeed I am Allah, Lord of the worlds.”
(28:31) And [he was told], “Throw down your staff.” But when he saw it writhing as if it was a snake, he turned in flight and did not return. [Allah said], “O Moses, approach and fear not. Indeed, you are of the secure.
(28:32) Insert your hand into the opening of your garment; it will come out white, without disease. And draw in your arm close to you [as prevention] from fear, for those are two proofs from your Lord to Pharaoh and his establishment. Indeed, they have been a people defiantly disobedient.”
(28:33) He said, “My Lord, indeed, I killed from among them someone, and I fear they will kill me.
(28:34) And my brother Aaron is more fluent than me in tongue, so send him with me as support, verifying me. Indeed, I fear that they will deny me.”
(28:35) [Allah ] said, “We will strengthen your arm through your brother and grant you both supremacy so they will not reach you. [It will be] through Our signs; you and those who follow you will be the predominant.”
(28:36) But when Moses came to them with Our signs as clear evidences, they said, “This is not except invented magic, and we have not heard of this [religion] among our forefathers.”
(28:37) And Moses said, “My Lord is more knowing [than we or you] of who has come with guidance from Him and to whom will be succession in the home. Indeed, wrongdoers do not succeed.”
(28:38) And Pharaoh said, “O eminent ones, I have not known you to have a god other than me. Then ignite for me, O Haman, [a fire] upon the clay and make for me a tower that I may look at the God of Moses. And indeed, I do think he is among the liars.”
(28:39) And he was arrogant, he and his soldiers, in the land, without right, and they thought that they would not be returned to Us.
(28:40) So We took him and his soldiers and threw them into the sea. So see how was the end of the wrongdoers.
(28:41) And We made them leaders inviting to the Fire, and on the Day of Resurrection they will not be helped.
(28:42) And We caused to overtake them in this world a curse, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be of the despised.
(28:43) And We gave Moses the Scripture, after We had destroyed the former generations, as enlightenment for the people and guidance and mercy that they might be reminded.
(28:44) And you were not on the western side [of the mount] when We revealed to Moses the command, and you were not among the witnesses [to that].
(28:45) But We produced [many] generations [after Moses], and prolonged was their duration. And you were not a resident among the people of Madyan, reciting to them Our verses, but We were senders [of this message].
(28:46) And you were not at the side of the mount when We called [Moses] but [were sent] as a mercy from your Lord to warn a people to whom no warner had come before you that they might be reminded.
(18:60) And [mention] when Moses said to his servant, “I will not cease [traveling] until I reach the junction of the two seas or continue for a long period.”
(18:61) But when they reached the junction between them, they forgot their fish, and it took its course into the sea, slipping away.
(18:62) So when they had passed beyond it, [Moses] said to his boy, “Bring us our morning meal. We have certainly suffered in this, our journey, [much] fatigue.”
(18:63) He said, “Did you see when we retired to the rock? Indeed, I forgot [there] the fish. And none made me forget it except Satan – that I should mention it. And it took its course into the sea amazingly”.
(18:64) [Moses] said, “That is what we were seeking.” So they returned, following their footprints.
(18:65) And they found a servant from among Our servants to whom we had given mercy from us and had taught him from Us a [certain] knowledge.
(18:66) Moses said to him, “May I follow you on [the condition] that you teach me from what you have been taught of sound judgement?”
(18:67) He said, “Indeed, with me you will never be able to have patience.
(18:68) And how can you have patience for what you do not encompass in knowledge?”
(18:69) [Moses] said, “You will find me, if Allah wills, patient, and I will not disobey you in [any] order.”
(18:70) He said, “Then if you follow me, do not ask me about anything until I make to you about it mention.”
(18:71) So they set out, until when they had embarked on the ship, al-Khidhr tore it open. [Moses] said, “Have you torn it open to drown its people? You have certainly done a grave thing.”
(18:72) [Al-Khidhr] said, “Did I not say that with me you would never be able to have patience?”
(18:73) [Moses] said, “Do not blame me for what I forgot and do not cover me in my matter with difficulty.”
(18:74) So they set out, until when they met a boy, al-Khidhr killed him. [Moses] said, “Have you killed a pure soul for other than [having killed] a soul? You have certainly done a deplorable thing.”
(18:75) [Al-Khidhr] said, “Did I not tell you that with me you would never be able to have patience?”
(18:76) [Moses] said, “If I should ask you about anything after this, then do not keep me as a companion. You have obtained from me an excuse.”
(18:77) So they set out, until when they came to the people of a town, they asked its people for food, but they refused to offer them hospitality. And they found therein a wall about to collapse, so al-Khidhr restored it. [Moses] said, “If you wished, you could have taken for it a payment.”
(18:78) [Al-Khidhr] said, “This is parting between me and you. I will inform you of the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience.
(18:79) As for the ship, it belonged to poor people working at sea. So I intended to cause defect in it as there was after them a king who seized every [good] ship by force.
(18:80) And as for the boy, his parents were believers, and we feared that he would overburden them by transgression and disbelief.
(18:81) So we intended that their Lord should substitute for them one better than him in purity and nearer to mercy.
(18:82) And as for the wall, it belonged to two orphan boys in the city, and there was beneath it a treasure for them, and their father had been righteous. So your Lord intended that they reach maturity and extract their treasure, as a mercy from your Lord. And I did it not of my own accord. That is the interpretation of that about which you could not have patience.”
(20:9) And has the story of Moses reached you? –
(20:10) When he saw a fire and said to his family, “Stay here; indeed, I have perceived a fire; perhaps I can bring you a torch or find at the fire some guidance.”
(20:11) And when he came to it, he was called, “O Moses,
(20:12) Indeed, I am your Lord, so remove your sandals. Indeed, you are in the sacred valley of Tuwa.
(20:13) And I have chosen you, so listen to what is revealed [to you].
(20:14) Indeed, I am Allah. There is no deity except Me, so worship Me and establish prayer for My remembrance.
(20:15) Indeed, the Hour is coming – I almost conceal it – so that every soul may be recompensed according to that for which it strives.
(20:16) So do not let one avert you from it who does not believe in it and follows his desire, for you [then] would perish.
(20:17) And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?”
(20:18) He said, “It is my staff; I lean upon it, and I bring down leaves for my sheep and I have therein other uses.”
(20:19) [ Allah ] said, “Throw it down, O Moses.”
(20:20) So he threw it down, and thereupon it was a snake, moving swiftly.
(20:21) [ Allah ] said, “Seize it and fear not; We will return it to its former condition.
(20:22) And draw in your hand to your side; it will come out white without disease – another sign,
(20:23) That We may show you [some] of Our greater signs.
(20:24) Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.”
(20:25) [Moses] said, “My Lord, expand for me my breast [with assurance]
(20:26) And ease for me my task
(20:27) And untie the knot from my tongue
(20:28) That they may understand my speech.
(20:29) And appoint for me a minister from my family –
(20:30) Aaron, my brother.
(20:31) Increase through him my strength
(20:32) And let him share my task
(20:33) That we may exalt You much
(20:34) And remember You much.
(20:35) Indeed, You are of us ever Seeing.”
(20:36) [ Allah ] said, “You have been granted your request, O Moses.
(20:37) And We had already conferred favor upon you another time,
(20:38) When We inspired to your mother what We inspired,
(20:39) [Saying], ‘Cast him into the chest and cast it into the river, and the river will throw it onto the bank; there will take him an enemy to Me and an enemy to him.’ And I bestowed upon you love from Me that you would be brought up under My eye.
(20:40) [And We favored you] when your sister went and said, ‘Shall I direct you to someone who will be responsible for him?’ So We restored you to your mother that she might be content and not grieve. And you killed someone, but We saved you from retaliation and tried you with a [severe] trial. And you remained [some] years among the people of Madyan. Then you came [here] at the decreed time, O Moses.
(20:41) And I produced you for Myself.
(20:42) Go, you and your brother, with My signs and do not slacken in My remembrance.
(20:43) Go, both of you, to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.
(20:44) And speak to him with gentle speech that perhaps he may be reminded or fear [ Allah ].”
(20:45) They said, “Our Lord, indeed we are afraid that he will hasten [punishment] against us or that he will transgress.”
(20:46) [ Allah ] said, “Fear not. Indeed, I am with you both; I hear and I see.
(20:47) So go to him and say, ‘Indeed, we are messengers of your Lord, so send with us the Children of Israel and do not torment them. We have come to you with a sign from your Lord. And peace will be upon he who follows the guidance.
(20:48) Indeed, it has been revealed to us that the punishment will be upon whoever denies and turns away.’ ”
(20:49) [Pharaoh] said, “So who is the Lord of you two, O Moses?”
(20:50) He said, “Our Lord is He who gave each thing its form and then guided [it].”
(20:51) [Pharaoh] said, “Then what is the case of the former generations?”
(20:52) [Moses] said, “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a record. My Lord neither errs nor forgets.”
(20:53) [It is He] who has made for you the earth as a bed [spread out] and inserted therein for you roadways and sent down from the sky, rain and produced thereby categories of various plants.
(20:54) Eat [therefrom] and pasture your livestock. Indeed, in that are signs for those of intelligence.
(20:55) From the earth We created you, and into it We will return you, and from it We will extract you another time.
(20:56) And We certainly showed Pharaoh Our signs – all of them – but he denied and refused.
(20:57) He said, “Have you come to us to drive us out of our land with your magic, O Moses?
(20:58) Then we will surely bring you magic like it, so make between us and you an appointment, which we will not fail to keep and neither will you, in a place assigned.”
(20:59) [Moses] said, “Your appointment is on the day of the festival when the people assemble at mid-morning.”
(20:60) So Pharaoh went away, put together his plan, and then came [to Moses].
(20:61) Moses said to the magicians summoned by Pharaoh, “Woe to you! Do not invent a lie against Allah or He will exterminate you with a punishment; and he has failed who invents [such falsehood].”
(20:62) So they disputed over their affair among themselves and concealed their private conversation.
(20:63) They said, “Indeed, these are two magicians who want to drive you out of your land with their magic and do away with your most exemplary way.
(20:64) So resolve upon your plan and then come [forward] in line. And he has succeeded today who overcomes.”
(20:65) They said, “O Moses, either you throw or we will be the first to throw.”
(20:66) He said, “Rather, you throw.” And suddenly their ropes and staffs seemed to him from their magic that they were moving [like snakes].
(20:67) And he sensed within himself apprehension, did Moses.
(20:68) Allah said, “Fear not. Indeed, it is you who are superior.
(20:69) And throw what is in your right hand; it will swallow up what they have crafted. What they have crafted is but the trick of a magician, and the magician will not succeed wherever he is.”
(20:70) So the magicians fell down in prostration. They said, “We have believed in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.”
(20:71) [Pharaoh] said, “You believed him before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic. So I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will crucify you on the trunks of palm trees, and you will surely know which of us is more severe in [giving] punishment and more enduring.”
(20:72) They said, “Never will we prefer you over what has come to us of clear proofs and [over] He who created us. So decree whatever you are to decree. You can only decree for this worldly life.
(20:73) Indeed, we have believed in our Lord that He may forgive us our sins and what you compelled us [to do] of magic. And Allah is better and more enduring.”
(20:74) Indeed, whoever comes to his Lord as a criminal – indeed, for him is Hell; he will neither die therein nor live.
(20:75) But whoever comes to Him as a believer having done righteous deeds – for those will be the highest degrees [in position]:
(20:76) Gardens of perpetual residence beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. And that is the reward of one who purifies himself.
(20:77) And We had inspired to Moses, “Travel by night with My servants and strike for them a dry path through the sea; you will not fear being overtaken [by Pharaoh] nor be afraid [of drowning].”
(20:78) So Pharaoh pursued them with his soldiers, and there covered them from the sea that which covered them,
(20:79) And Pharaoh led his people astray and did not guide [them].
(20:80) O Children of Israel, We delivered you from your enemy, and We made an appointment with you at the right side of the mount, and We sent down to you manna and quails,
(20:81) [Saying], “Eat from the good things with which We have provided you and do not transgress [or oppress others] therein, lest My anger should descend upon you. And he upon whom My anger descends has certainly fallen.”
(20:82) But indeed, I am the Perpetual Forgiver of whoever repents and believes and does righteousness and then continues in guidance.
(20:83) [ Allah ] said, “And what made you hasten from your people, O Moses?”
(20:84) He said, “They are close upon my tracks, and I hastened to You, my Lord, that You be pleased.”
(20:85) [ Allah ] said, “But indeed, We have tried your people after you [departed], and the Samiri has led them astray.”
(20:86) So Moses returned to his people, angry and grieved. He said, “O my people, did your Lord not make you a good promise? Then, was the time [of its fulfillment] too long for you, or did you wish that wrath from your Lord descend upon you, so you broke your promise [of obedience] to me?”
(20:87) They said, “We did not break our promise to you by our will, but we were made to carry burdens from the ornaments of the people [of Pharaoh], so we threw them [into the fire], and thus did the Samiri throw.”
(20:88) And he extracted for them [the statue of] a calf which had a lowing sound, and they said, “This is your god and the god of Moses, but he forgot.”
(20:89) Did they not see that it could not return to them any speech and that it did not possess for them any harm or benefit?
(20:90) And Aaron had already told them before [the return of Moses], “O my people, you are only being tested by it, and indeed, your Lord is the Most Merciful, so follow me and obey my order.”
(20:91) They said, “We will never cease being devoted to the calf until Moses returns to us.”
(20:92) [Moses] said, “O Aaron, what prevented you, when you saw them going astray,
(20:93) From following me? Then have you disobeyed my order?”
(20:94) [Aaron] said, “O son of my mother, do not seize [me] by my beard or by my head. Indeed, I feared that you would say, ‘You caused division among the Children of Israel, and you did not observe [or await] my word.’ ”
(20:95) [Moses] said, “And what is your case, O Samiri?”
(20:96) He said, “I saw what they did not see, so I took a handful [of dust] from the track of the messenger and threw it, and thus did my soul entice me.”
(20:97) [Moses] said, “Then go. And indeed, it is [decreed] for you in [this] life to say, ‘No contact.’ And indeed, you have an appointment [in the Hereafter] you will not fail to keep. And look at your ‘god’ to which you remained devoted. We will surely burn it and blow it into the sea with a blast.
(20:98) Your god is only Allah, except for whom there is no deity. He has encompassed all things in knowledge.”
(23:45) Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron with Our signs and a clear authority
(23:46) To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were arrogant and were a haughty people.
(23:47) They said, “Should we believe two men like ourselves while their people are for us in servitude?”
(23:48) So they denied them and were of those destroyed.
(23:49) And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture that perhaps they would be guided.
(25:35) And We had certainly given Moses the Scripture and appointed with him his brother Aaron as an assistant.
(25:36) And We said, “Go both of you to the people who have denied Our signs.” Then We destroyed them with [complete] destruction.
(27:7) [Mention] when Moses said to his family, “Indeed, I have perceived a fire. I will bring you from there information or will bring you a burning torch that you may warm yourselves.”
(27:8) But when he came to it, he was called, “Blessed is whoever is at the fire and whoever is around it. And exalted is Allah, Lord of the worlds.
(27:9) O Moses, indeed it is I – Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.”
(27:10) And [he was told], “Throw down your staff.” But when he saw it writhing as if it were a snake, he turned in flight and did not return. [Allah said], “O Moses, fear not. Indeed, in My presence the messengers do not fear.
(27:11) Otherwise, he who wrongs, then substitutes good after evil – indeed, I am Forgiving and Merciful.
(27:12) And put your hand into the opening of your garment [at the breast]; it will come out white without disease. [These are] among the nine signs [you will take] to Pharaoh and his people. Indeed, they have been a people defiantly disobedient.”
(27:13) But when there came to them Our visible signs, they said, “This is obvious magic.”
(27:14) And they rejected them, while their [inner] selves were convinced thereof, out of injustice and haughtiness. So see how was the end of the corrupters.
(26:10) And [mention] when your Lord called Moses, [saying], “Go to the wrongdoing people –
(26:11) The people of Pharaoh. Will they not fear Allah?”
(26:12) He said, “My Lord, indeed I fear that they will deny me
(26:13) And that my breast will tighten and my tongue will not be fluent, so send for Aaron.
(26:14) And they have upon me a [claim due to] sin, so I fear that they will kill me.”
(26:15) [ Allah ] said, “No. Go both of you with Our signs; indeed, We are with you, listening.
(26:16) Go to Pharaoh and say, ‘We are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds,
(26:17) [Commanded to say], “Send with us the Children of Israel.”‘”
(26:18) [Pharaoh] said, “Did we not raise you among us as a child, and you remained among us for years of your life?
(26:19) And [then] you did your deed which you did, and you were of the ungrateful.”
(26:20) [Moses] said, “I did it, then, while I was of those astray.
(26:21) So I fled from you when I feared you. Then my Lord granted me wisdom and prophethood and appointed me [as one] of the messengers.
(26:22) And is this a favor of which you remind me – that you have enslaved the Children of Israel?”
(26:23) Said Pharaoh, “And what is the Lord of the worlds?”
(26:24) [Moses] said, “The Lord of the heavens and earth and that between them, if you should be convinced.”
(26:25) [Pharaoh] said to those around him, “Do you not hear?”
(26:26) [Moses] said, “Your Lord and the Lord of your first forefathers.”
(26:27) [Pharaoh] said, “Indeed, your ‘messenger’ who has been sent to you is mad.”
(26:28) [Moses] said, “Lord of the east and the west and that between them, if you were to reason.”
(26:29) [Pharaoh] said, “If you take a god other than me, I will surely place you among those imprisoned.”
(26:30) [Moses] said, “Even if I brought you proof manifest?”
(26:31) [Pharaoh] said, “Then bring it, if you should be of the truthful.”
(26:32) So [Moses] threw his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent manifest.
(26:33) And he drew out his hand; thereupon it was white for the observers.
(26:34) [Pharaoh] said to the eminent ones around him, “Indeed, this is a learned magician.
(26:35) He wants to drive you out of your land by his magic, so what do you advise?”
(26:36) They said, “Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers
(26:37) Who will bring you every learned, skilled magician.”
(26:38) So the magicians were assembled for the appointment of a well-known day.
(26:39) And it was said to the people, “Will you congregate
(26:40) That we might follow the magicians if they are the predominant?”
(26:41) And when the magicians arrived, they said to Pharaoh, “Is there indeed for us a reward if we are the predominant?”
(26:42) He said, “Yes, and indeed, you will then be of those near [to me].”
(26:43) Moses said to them, “Throw whatever you will throw.”
(26:44) So they threw their ropes and their staffs and said, “By the might of Pharaoh, indeed it is we who are predominant.”
(26:45) Then Moses threw his staff, and at once it devoured what they falsified.
(26:46) So the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah].
(26:47) They said, “We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,
(26:48) The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
(26:49) [Pharaoh] said, “You believed Moses before I gave you permission. Indeed, he is your leader who has taught you magic, but you are going to know. I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides, and I will surely crucify you all.”
(26:50) They said, “No harm. Indeed, to our Lord we will return.
(26:51) Indeed, we aspire that our Lord will forgive us our sins because we were the first of the believers.”
(26:52) And We inspired to Moses, “Travel by night with My servants; indeed, you will be pursued.”
(26:53) Then Pharaoh sent among the cities gatherers
(26:54) [And said], “Indeed, those are but a small band,
(26:55) And indeed, they are enraging us,
(26:56) And indeed, we are a cautious society… ”
(26:57) So We removed them from gardens and springs
(26:58) And treasures and honorable station –
(26:59) Thus. And We caused to inherit it the Children of Israel.
(26:60) So they pursued them at sunrise.
(26:61) And when the two companies saw one another, the companions of Moses said, “Indeed, we are to be overtaken!”
(26:62) [Moses] said, “No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me.”
(26:63) Then We inspired to Moses, “Strike with your staff the sea,” and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain.
(26:64) And We advanced thereto the pursuers.
(26:65) And We saved Moses and those with him, all together.
(26:66) Then We drowned the others.
(26:67) Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers.
(26:68) And indeed, your Lord – He is the Exalted in Might, the Merciful.
(40:23) And We did certainly send Moses with Our signs and a clear authority
(40:24) To Pharaoh, Haman and Qarun; but they said, “[He is] a magician and a liar.”
(40:25) And when he brought them the truth from Us, they said, “Kill the sons of those who have believed with him and keep their women alive.” But the plan of the disbelievers is not except in error.
(40:26) And Pharaoh said, “Let me kill Moses and let him call upon his Lord. Indeed, I fear that he will change your religion or that he will cause corruption in the land.”
(40:27) But Moses said, “Indeed, I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every arrogant one who does not believe in the Day of Account.”
(40:28) And a believing man from the family of Pharaoh who concealed his faith said, “Do you kill a man [merely] because he says, ‘My Lord is Allah ‘ while he has brought you clear proofs from your Lord? And if he should be lying, then upon him is [the consequence of] his lie; but if he should be truthful, there will strike you some of what he promises you. Indeed, Allah does not guide one who is a transgressor and a liar.
(40:29) O my people, sovereignty is yours today, [your being] dominant in the land. But who would protect us from the punishment of Allah if it came to us?” Pharaoh said, “I do not show you except what I see, and I do not guide you except to the way of right conduct.”
(40:30) And he who believed said, “O my people, indeed I fear for you [a fate] like the day of the companies –
(40:31) Like the custom of the people of Noah and of ‘Aad and Thamud and those after them. And Allah wants no injustice for [His] servants.
(40:32) And O my people, indeed I fear for you the Day of Calling –
(40:33) The Day you will turn your backs fleeing; there is not for you from Allah any protector. And whoever Allah leaves astray – there is not for him any guide.
(40:34) And Joseph had already come to you before with clear proofs, but you remained in doubt of that which he brought to you, until when he died, you said, ‘Never will Allah send a messenger after him.’ Thus does Allah leave astray he who is a transgressor and skeptic.”
(40:35) Those who dispute concerning the signs of Allah without an authority having come to them – great is hatred [of them] in the sight of Allah and in the sight of those who have believed. Thus does Allah seal over every heart [belonging to] an arrogant tyrant.
(40:36) And Pharaoh said, “O Haman, construct for me a tower that I might reach the ways –
(40:37) The ways into the heavens – so that I may look at the deity of Moses; but indeed, I think he is a liar.” And thus was made attractive to Pharaoh the evil of his deed, and he was averted from the [right] way. And the plan of Pharaoh was not except in ruin.
(40:38) And he who believed said, “O my people, follow me, I will guide you to the way of right conduct.
(40:39) O my people, this worldly life is only [temporary] enjoyment, and indeed, the Hereafter – that is the home of [permanent] settlement.
(40:40) Whoever does an evil deed will not be recompensed except by the like thereof; but whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer – those will enter Paradise, being given provision therein without account.
(40:41) And O my people, how is it that I invite you to salvation while you invite me to the Fire?
(40:42) You invite me to disbelieve in Allah and associate with Him that of which I have no knowledge, and I invite you to the Exalted in Might, the Perpetual Forgiver.
(40:43) Assuredly, that to which you invite me has no [response to a] supplication in this world or in the Hereafter; and indeed, our return is to Allah, and indeed, the transgressors will be companions of the Fire.
(40:44) And you will remember what I [now] say to you, and I entrust my affair to Allah. Indeed, Allah is Seeing of [His] servants.”
(40:45) So Allah protected him from the evils they plotted, and the people of Pharaoh were enveloped by the worst of punishment –
(40:46) The Fire, they are exposed to it morning and evening. And the Day the Hour appears [it will be said], “Make the people of Pharaoh enter the severest punishment.”
(40:47) And [mention] when they will argue within the Fire, and the weak will say to those who had been arrogant, “Indeed, we were [only] your followers, so will you relieve us of a share of the Fire?”
(40:48) Those who had been arrogant will say, “Indeed, all [of us] are in it. Indeed, Allah has judged between the servants.”
(40:49) And those in the Fire will say to the keepers of Hell, “Supplicate your Lord to lighten for us a day from the punishment.”
(40:50) They will say, “Did there not come to you your messengers with clear proofs?” They will say, “Yes.” They will reply, “Then supplicate [yourselves], but the supplication of the disbelievers is not except in error.”
(40:51) Indeed, We will support Our messengers and those who believe during the life of this world and on the Day when the witnesses will stand –
(40:52) The Day their excuse will not benefit the wrongdoers, and they will have the curse, and they will have the worst home.
(40:53) And We had certainly given Moses guidance, and We caused the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture
(40:54) As guidance and a reminder for those of understanding.
(28:76) Indeed, Qarun was from the people of Moses, but he tyrannized them. And We gave him of treasures whose keys would burden a band of strong men; thereupon his people said to him, “Do not exult. Indeed, Allah does not like the exultant.
(28:77) But seek, through that which Allah has given you, the home of the Hereafter; and [yet], do not forget your share of the world. And do good as Allah has done good to you. And desire not corruption in the land. Indeed, Allah does not like corrupters.”
(28:78) He said, “I was only given it because of knowledge I have.” Did he not know that Allah had destroyed before him of generations those who were greater than him in power and greater in accumulation [of wealth]? But the criminals, about their sins, will not be asked.
(28:79) So he came out before his people in his adornment. Those who desired the worldly life said, “Oh, would that we had like what was given to Qarun. Indeed, he is one of great fortune.”
(28:80) But those who had been given knowledge said, “Woe to you! The reward of Allah is better for he who believes and does righteousness. And none are granted it except the patient.”
(28:81) And We caused the earth to swallow him and his home. And there was for him no company to aid him other than Allah, nor was he of those who [could] defend themselves.
(28:82) And those who had wished for his position the previous day began to say, “Oh, how Allah extends provision to whom He wills of His servants and restricts it! If not that Allah had conferred favor on us, He would have caused it to swallow us. Oh, how the disbelievers do not succeed!”
(28:83) That home of the Hereafter We assign to those who do not desire exaltedness upon the earth or corruption. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous.
(29:39) And [We destroyed] Qarun and Pharaoh and Haman. And Moses had already come to them with clear evidences, and they were arrogant in the land, but they were not outrunners [of Our punishment].
(2:47) O Children of Israel, remember My favor that I have bestowed upon you and that I preferred you over the worlds.
(2:48) And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be taken from it, nor will they be aided.
(2:49) And [recall] when We saved your forefathers from the people of Pharaoh, who afflicted you with the worst torment, slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
(2:50) And [recall] when We parted the sea for you and saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were looking on.
(2:51) And [recall] when We made an appointment with Moses for forty nights. Then you took [for worship] the calf after him, while you were wrongdoers.
(2:52) Then We forgave you after that so perhaps you would be grateful.
(2:53) And [recall] when We gave Moses the Scripture and criterion that perhaps you would be guided.
(2:54) And [recall] when Moses said to his people, “O my people, indeed you have wronged yourselves by your taking of the calf [for worship]. So repent to your Creator and kill yourselves. That is best for [all of] you in the sight of your Creator.” Then He accepted your repentance; indeed, He is the Accepting of repentance, the Merciful.
(2:55) And [recall] when you said, “O Moses, we will never believe you until we see Allah outright”; so the thunderbolt took you while you were looking on.
(2:56) Then We revived you after your death that perhaps you would be grateful.
(2:57) And We shaded you with clouds and sent down to you manna and quails, [saying], “Eat from the good things with which We have provided you.” And they wronged Us not – but they were [only] wronging themselves.
(2:58) And [recall] when We said, “Enter this city and eat from it wherever you will in [ease and] abundance, and enter the gate bowing humbly and say, ‘Relieve us of our burdens.’ We will [then] forgive your sins for you, and We will increase the doers of good [in goodness and reward].”
(2:59) But those who wronged changed [those words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them, so We sent down upon those who wronged a punishment from the sky because they were defiantly disobeying.
(2:60) And [recall] when Moses prayed for water for his people, so We said, “Strike with your staff the stone.” And there gushed forth from it twelve springs, and every people knew its watering place. “Eat and drink from the provision of Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.”
(2:61) And [recall] when you said, “O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your Lord to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions.” [Moses] said, “Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you have asked.” And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing.
(2:62) Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.
(2:63) And [recall] when We took your covenant, [O Children of Israel, to abide by the Torah] and We raised over you the mount, [saying], “Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that perhaps you may become righteous.”
(2:64) Then you turned away after that. And if not for the favor of Allah upon you and His mercy, you would have been among the losers.
(2:65) And you had already known about those who transgressed among you concerning the Sabbath, and We said to them, “Be apes, despised.”
(2:66) And We made it a deterrent punishment for those who were present and those who succeeded [them] and a lesson for those who fear Allah.
(2:67) And [recall] when Moses said to his people, “Indeed, Allah commands you to slaughter a cow.” They said, “Do you take us in ridicule?” He said, “I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant.”
(2:68) They said, “Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is.” [Moses] said, “[ Allah ] says, ‘It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,’ so do what you are commanded.”
(2:69) They said, “Call upon your Lord to show us what is her color.” He said, “He says, ‘It is a yellow cow, bright in color – pleasing to the observers.’ ”
(2:70) They said, “Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is. Indeed, [all] cows look alike to us. And indeed we, if Allah wills, will be guided.”
(2:71) He said, “He says, ‘It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.’ ” They said, “Now you have come with the truth.” So they slaughtered her, but they could hardly do it.
(2:72) And [recall] when you slew a man and disputed over it, but Allah was to bring out that which you were concealing.
(2:73) So, We said, “Strike the slain man with part of it.” Thus does Allah bring the dead to life, and He shows you His signs that you might reason.
(2:74) Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah . And Allah is not unaware of what you do.
(2:87) And We did certainly give Moses the Torah and followed up after him with messengers. And We gave Jesus, the son of Mary, clear proofs and supported him with the Pure Spirit. But is it [not] that every time a messenger came to you, [O Children of Israel], with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party [of messengers] you denied and another party you killed.
(2:92) And Moses had certainly brought you clear proofs. Then you took the calf [in worship] after that, while you were wrongdoers.
(2:93) And [recall] when We took your covenant and raised over you the mount, [saying], “Take what We have given you with determination and listen.” They said [instead], “We hear and disobey.” And their hearts absorbed [the worship of] the calf because of their disbelief. Say, “How wretched is that which your faith enjoins upon you, if you should be believers.”
(2:94) Say, “If the home of the Hereafter with Allah is for you alone and not the [other] people, then wish for death, if you should be truthful.
(2:95) But they will never wish for it, ever, because of what their hands have put forth. And Allah is Knowing of the wrongdoers.
(2:96) And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life – [even] more than those who associate others with Allah. One of them wishes that he could be granted life a thousand years, but it would not remove him in the least from the [coming] punishment that he should be granted life. And Allah is Seeing of what they do.
(51:38) And in Moses [was a sign], when We sent him to Pharaoh with clear authority.
(51:39) But he turned away with his supporters and said,” A magician or a madman.”
(51:40) So We took him and his soldiers and cast them into the sea, and he was blameworthy.
(14:4) And We did not send any messenger except [speaking] in the language of his people to state clearly for them, and Allah sends astray [thereby] whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.
(14:5) And We certainly sent Moses with Our signs, [saying], “Bring out your people from darknesses into the light and remind them of the days of Allah.” Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful.
(14:6) And [recall, O Children of Israel], when Moses said to His people, “Remember the favor of Allah upon you when He saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
(14:7) And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favor]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.’ ”
(14:8) And Moses said, “If you should disbelieve, you and whoever is on the earth entirely – indeed, Allah is Free of need and Praiseworthy.”
(14:9) Has there not reached you the news of those before you – the people of Noah and ‘Aad and Thamud and those after them? No one knows them but Allah. Their messengers brought them clear proofs, but they returned their hands to their mouths and said, “Indeed, we disbelieve in that with which you have been sent, and indeed we are, about that to which you invite us, in disquieting doubt.”
(14:10) Their messengers said, “Can there be doubt about Allah, Creator of the heavens and earth? He invites you that He may forgive you of your sins, and He delays your death for a specified term.” They said, “You are not but men like us who wish to avert us from what our fathers were worshipping. So bring us a clear authority.”
(14:11) Their messengers said to them, “We are only men like you, but Allah confers favor upon whom He wills of His servants. It has never been for us to bring you evidence except by permission of Allah. And upon Allah let the believers rely.
(14:12) And why should we not rely upon Allah while He has guided us to our [good] ways. And we will surely be patient against whatever harm you should cause us. And upon Allah let those who would rely [indeed] rely.”
(14:13) And those who disbelieved said to their messengers, “We will surely drive you out of our land, or you must return to our religion.” So their Lord inspired to them, “We will surely destroy the wrongdoers.
(14:14) And We will surely cause you to dwell in the land after them. That is for he who fears My position and fears My threat.”
(14:15) And they requested victory from Allah, and disappointed, [therefore], was every obstinate tyrant.
(14:16) Before him is Hell, and he will be given a drink of purulent water.
(14:17) He will gulp it but will hardly [be able to] swallow it. And death will come to him from everywhere, but he is not to die. And before him is a massive punishment.
(14:18) The example of those who disbelieve in their Lord is [that] their deeds are like ashes which the wind blows forcefully on a stormy day; they are unable [to keep] from what they earned a [single] thing. That is what is extreme error.
(14:19) Have you not seen that Allah created the heavens and the earth in truth? If He wills, He can do away with you and produce a new creation.
(14:20) And that is not difficult for Allah.
(10:75) Then We sent after them Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh and his establishment with Our signs, but they behaved arrogantly and were a criminal people
(10:76) So when there came to them the truth from Us, they said, “Indeed, this is obvious magic.”
(10:77) Moses said, “Do you say [thus] about the truth when it has come to you? Is this magic? But magicians will not succeed.”
(10:78) They said, “Have you come to us to turn us away from that upon which we found our fathers and so that you two may have grandeur in the land? And we are not believers in you.”
(10:79) And Pharaoh said, “Bring to me every learned magician.”
(10:80) So when the magicians came, Moses said to them, “Throw down whatever you will throw.”
(10:81) And when they had thrown, Moses said, “What you have brought is [only] magic. Indeed, Allah will expose its worthlessness. Indeed, Allah does not amend the work of corrupters.
(10:82) And Allah will establish the truth by His words, even if the criminals dislike it.”
(10:83) But no one believed Moses, except [some] youths among his people, for fear of Pharaoh and his establishment that they would persecute them. And indeed, Pharaoh was haughty within the land, and indeed, he was of the transgressors
(10:84) And Moses said, “O my people, if you have believed in Allah, then rely upon Him, if you should be Muslims.”
(10:85) So they said, “Upon Allah do we rely. Our Lord, make us not [objects of] trial for the wrongdoing people
(10:86) And save us by Your mercy from the disbelieving people.”
(10:87) And We inspired to Moses and his brother, “Settle your people in Egypt in houses and make your houses [facing the] qiblah and establish prayer and give good tidings to the believers.”
(10:88) And Moses said, “Our Lord, indeed You have given Pharaoh and his establishment splendor and wealth in the worldly life, our Lord, that they may lead [men] astray from Your way. Our Lord, obliterate their wealth and harden their hearts so that they will not believe until they see the painful punishment.”
(10:89) [ Allah ] said, “Your supplication has been answered.” So remain on a right course and follow not the way of those who do not know.”
(10:90) And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, “I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims.”
(10:91) Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters?
(10:92) So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people, of Our signs, are heedless
(10:93) And We had certainty settled the Children of Israel in an agreeable settlement and provided them with good things. And they did not differ until [after] knowledge had come to them. Indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.
(11:96) And We did certainly send Moses with Our signs and a clear authority
(11:97) To Pharaoh and his establishment, but they followed the command of Pharaoh, and the command of Pharaoh was not [at all] discerning.
(11:98) He will precede his people on the Day of Resurrection and lead them into the Fire; and wretched is the place to which they are led.
(11:99) And they were followed in this [world] with a curse and on the Day of Resurrection. And wretched is the gift which is given.
(11:100) That is from the news of the cities, which We relate to you; of them, some are [still] standing and some are [as] a harvest [mowed down].
(11:101) And We did not wrong them, but they wronged themselves. And they were not availed at all by their gods which they invoked other than Allah when there came the command of your Lord. And they did not increase them in other than ruin.
(11:102) And thus is the seizure of your Lord when He seizes the cities while they are committing wrong. Indeed, His seizure is painful and severe.
(11:103) Indeed in that is a sign for those who fear the punishment of the Hereafter. That is a Day for which the people will be collected, and that is a Day [which will be] witnessed.
(11:104) And We do not delay it except for a limited term.
(7:103) Then We sent after them Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his establishment, but they were unjust toward them. So see how was the end of the corrupters.
(7:104) And Moses said, “O Pharaoh, I am a messenger from the Lord of the worlds
(7:105) [Who is] obligated not to say about Allah except the truth. I have come to you with clear evidence from your Lord, so send with me the Children of Israel.”
(7:106) [Pharaoh] said, “If you have come with a sign, then bring it forth, if you should be of the truthful.”
(7:107) So Moses threw his staff, and suddenly it was a serpent, manifest.
(7:108) And he drew out his hand; thereupon it was white [with radiance] for the observers.
(7:109) Said the eminent among the people of Pharaoh, “Indeed, this is a learned magician
(7:110) Who wants to expel you from your land [through magic], so what do you instruct?”
(7:111) They said, “Postpone [the matter of] him and his brother and send among the cities gatherers
(7:112) Who will bring you every learned magician.”
(7:113) And the magicians came to Pharaoh. They said, “Indeed for us is a reward if we are the predominant.”
(7:114) He said, “Yes, and, [moreover], you will be among those made near [to me].”
(7:115) They said, “O Moses, either you throw [your staff], or we will be the ones to throw [first].”
(7:116) He said, “Throw,” and when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck terror into them, and they presented a great [feat of] magic.
(7:117) And We inspired to Moses, “Throw your staff,” and at once it devoured what they were falsifying.
(7:118) So the truth was established, and abolished was what they were doing.
(7:119) And Pharaoh and his people were overcome right there and became debased.
(7:120) And the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allah].
(7:121) They said, “We have believed in the Lord of the worlds,
(7:122) The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”
(7:123) Said Pharaoh, “You believed in him before I gave you permission. Indeed, this is a conspiracy which you conspired in the city to expel therefrom its people. But you are going to know.
(7:124) I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides; then I will surely crucify you all.”
(7:125) They said, “Indeed, to our Lord we will return.
(7:126) And you do not resent us except because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let us die as Muslims [in submission to You].”
(7:127) And the eminent among the people of Pharaoh said,” Will you leave Moses and his people to cause corruption in the land and abandon you and your gods?” [Pharaoh] said, “We will kill their sons and keep their women alive; and indeed, we are subjugators over them.”
(7:128) Said Moses to his people, “Seek help through Allah and be patient. Indeed, the earth belongs to Allah . He causes to inherit it whom He wills of His servants. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous.”
(7:129) They said, “We have been harmed before you came to us and after you have come to us.” He said, “Perhaps your Lord will destroy your enemy and grant you succession in the land and see how you will do.”
(7:130) And We certainly seized the people of Pharaoh with years of famine and a deficiency in fruits that perhaps they would be reminded.
(7:131) But when good came to them, they said, “This is ours [by right].” And if a bad [condition] struck them, they saw an evil omen in Moses and those with him. Unquestionably, their fortune is with Allah, but most of them do not know.
(7:132) And they said, “No matter what sign you bring us with which to bewitch us, we will not be believers in you.”
(7:133) So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.
(7:134) And when the punishment descended upon them, they said, “O Moses, invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. If you [can] remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the Children of Israel.”
(7:135) But when We removed the punishment from them until a term which they were to reach, then at once they broke their word.
(7:136) So We took retribution from them, and We drowned them in the sea because they denied Our signs and were heedless of them.
(7:137) And We caused the people who had been oppressed to inherit the eastern regions of the land and the western ones, which We had blessed. And the good word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel because of what they had patiently endured. And We destroyed [all] that Pharaoh and his people were producing and what they had been building.
(7:138) And We took the Children of Israel across the sea; then they came upon a people intent in devotion to [some] idols of theirs. They said, “O Moses, make for us a god just as they have gods.” He said, “Indeed, you are a people behaving ignorantly.
(7:139) Indeed, those [worshippers] – destroyed is that in which they are [engaged], and worthless is whatever they were doing.”
(7:140) He said, “Is it other than Allah I should desire for you as a god while He has preferred you over the worlds?”
(7:141) And [recall, O Children of Israel], when We saved you from the people of Pharaoh, [who were] afflicting you with the worst torment – killing your sons and keeping your women alive. And in that was a great trial from your Lord.
(7:142) And We made an appointment with Moses for thirty nights and perfected them by [the addition of] ten; so the term of his Lord was completed as forty nights. And Moses said to his brother Aaron, “Take my place among my people, do right [by them], and do not follow the way of the corrupters.”
(7:143) And when Moses arrived at Our appointed time and his Lord spoke to him, he said, “My Lord, show me [Yourself] that I may look at You.” [ Allah ] said, “You will not see Me, but look at the mountain; if it should remain in place, then you will see Me.” But when his Lord appeared to the mountain, He rendered it level, and Moses fell unconscious. And when he awoke, he said, “Exalted are You! I have repented to You, and I am the first of the believers.”
(7:144) [ Allah ] said, “O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My words [to you]. So take what I have given you and be among the grateful.”
(7:145) And We wrote for him on the tablets [something] of all things – instruction and explanation for all things, [saying], “Take them with determination and order your people to take the best of it. I will show you the home of the defiantly disobedient.”
(7:146) I will turn away from My signs those who are arrogant upon the earth without right; and if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. And if they see the way of consciousness, they will not adopt it as a way; but if they see the way of error, they will adopt it as a way. That is because they have denied Our signs and they were heedless of them.
(44:17) And We had already tried before them the people of Pharaoh, and there came to them a noble messenger,
(44:18) [Saying], “Render to me the servants of Allah . Indeed, I am to you a trustworthy messenger,”
(44:19) And [saying], “Be not haughty with Allah. Indeed, I have come to you with clear authority.
(44:20) And indeed, I have sought refuge in my Lord and your Lord, lest you stone me.
(44:21) But if you do not believe me, then leave me alone.”
(44:22) And [finally] he called to his Lord that these were a criminal people.
(44:23) [ Allah said], “Then set out with My servants by night. Indeed, you are to be pursued.
(44:24) And leave the sea in stillness. Indeed, they are an army to be drowned.”
(44:25) How much they left behind of gardens and springs
(44:26) And crops and noble sites
(44:27) And comfort wherein they were amused.
(44:28) Thus. And We caused to inherit it another people.
(44:29) And the heaven and earth wept not for them, nor were they reprieved.
(44:30) And We certainly saved the Children of Israel from the humiliating torment –
(44:31) From Pharaoh. Indeed, he was a haughty one among the transgressors.
(44:32) And We certainly chose them by knowledge over [all] the worlds.
(44:33) And We gave them of signs that in which there was a clear trial.
(44:34) Indeed, these [disbelievers] are saying,
(44:35) “There is not but our first death, and we will not be resurrected.
(44:36) Then bring [back] our forefathers, if you should be truthful.”
(44:37) Are they better or the people of Tubba’ and those before them? We destroyed them, [for] indeed, they were criminals.
(44:38) And We did not create the heavens and earth and that between them in play.
(44:39) We did not create them except in truth, but most of them do not know.
(69:9) And there came Pharaoh and those before him and the overturned cities with sin.
(69:10) And they disobeyed the messenger of their Lord, so He seized them with a seizure exceeding [in severity].
(54:41) And there certainly came to the people of Pharaoh warning.
(54:42) They denied Our signs, all of them, so We seized them with a seizure of one Exalted in Might and Perfect in Ability.
(7:147) Those who denied Our signs and the meeting of the Hereafter – their deeds have become worthless. Are they recompensed except for what they used to do?
(7:148) And the people of Moses made, after [his departure], from their ornaments a calf – an image having a lowing sound. Did they not see that it could neither speak to them nor guide them to a way? They took it [for worship], and they were wrongdoers.
(7:149) And when regret overcame them and they saw that they had gone astray, they said, “If our Lord does not have mercy upon us and forgive us, we will surely be among the losers.”
(7:150) And when Moses returned to his people, angry and grieved, he said, “How wretched is that by which you have replaced me after [my departure]. Were you impatient over the matter of your Lord?” And he threw down the tablets and seized his brother by [the hair of] his head, pulling him toward him. [Aaron] said, “O son of my mother, indeed the people oppressed me and were about to kill me, so let not the enemies rejoice over me and do not place me among the wrongdoing people.”
(7:151) [Moses] said, “My Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your mercy, for You are the most merciful of the merciful.”
(7:152) Indeed, those who took the calf [for worship] will obtain anger from their Lord and humiliation in the life of this world, and thus do We recompense the inventors [of falsehood].
(7:153) But those who committed misdeeds and then repented after them and believed – indeed your Lord, thereafter, is Forgiving and Merciful.
(7:154) And when the anger subsided in Moses, he took up the tablets; and in their inscription was guidance and mercy for those who are fearful of their Lord.
(7:155) And Moses chose from his people seventy men for Our appointment. And when the earthquake seized them, he said, “My Lord, if You had willed, You could have destroyed them before and me [as well]. Would You destroy us for what the foolish among us have done? This is not but Your trial by which You send astray whom You will and guide whom You will. You are our Protector, so forgive us and have mercy upon us; and You are the best of forgivers.
(7:156) And decree for us in this world [that which is] good and [also] in the Hereafter; indeed, we have turned back to You.” [ Allah ] said, “My punishment – I afflict with it whom I will, but My mercy encompasses all things.” So I will decree it [especially] for those who fear Me and give charity [zakah] and those who believe in Our verses –
(7:157) Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful.
(7:158) Say, “O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death.” So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided.
(7:159) And among the people of Moses is a community which guides by truth and by it establishes justice.
(7:160) And We divided them into twelve descendant tribes [as distinct] nations. And We inspired to Moses when his people implored him for water, “Strike with your staff the stone,” and there gushed forth from it twelve springs. Every people knew its watering place. And We shaded them with clouds and sent down upon them manna and quails, [saying], “Eat from the good things with which We have provided you.” And they wronged Us not, but they were [only] wronging themselves.
(7:161) And when it was said to them, “Dwell in this city and eat from it wherever you will and say, ‘Relieve us of our burdens,’ and enter the gate bowing humbly; We will [then] forgive you your sins. We will increase the doers of good [in goodness and reward].”
(7:162) But those who wronged among them changed [the words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them. So We sent upon them a punishment from the sky for the wrong that they were doing.
(7:163) And ask them about the town that was by the sea – when they transgressed in [the matter of] the Sabbath – when their fish came to them openly on their Sabbath day, and the day they had no Sabbath they did not come to them. Thus did We give them trial because they were defiantly disobedient.
(7:164) And when a community among them said, “Why do you advise [or warn] a people whom Allah is [about] to destroy or to punish with a severe punishment?” they [the advisors] said, “To be absolved before your Lord and perhaps they may fear Him.”
(7:165) And when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We saved those who had forbidden evil and seized those who wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying.
(7:166) So when they were insolent about that which they had been forbidden, We said to them, “Be apes, despised.”
(7:167) And [mention] when your Lord declared that He would surely [continue to] send upon them until the Day of Resurrection those who would afflict them with the worst torment. Indeed, your Lord is swift in penalty; but indeed, He is Forgiving and Merciful.
(7:168) And We divided them throughout the earth into nations. Of them some were righteous, and of them some were otherwise. And We tested them with good [times] and bad that perhaps they would return [to obedience].
(7:169) And there followed them successors who inherited the Scripture [while] taking the commodities of this lower life and saying, “It will be forgiven for us.” And if an offer like it comes to them, they will [again] take it. Was not the covenant of the Scripture taken from them that they would not say about Allah except the truth, and they studied what was in it? And the home of the Hereafter is better for those who fear Allah, so will you not use reason?
(7:170) But those who hold fast to the Book and establish prayer – indeed, We will not allow to be lost the reward of the reformers.
(7:171) And [mention] when We raised the mountain above them as if it was a dark cloud and they were certain that it would fall upon them, [and Allah said], “Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that you might fear Allah .”
(17:101) And We had certainly given Moses nine evident signs, so ask the Children of Israel [about] when he came to them and Pharaoh said to him, “Indeed I think, O Moses, that you are affected by magic.”
(17:102) [Moses] said, “You have already known that none has sent down these [signs] except the Lord of the heavens and the earth as evidence, and indeed I think, O Pharaoh, that you are destroyed.”
(17:103) So he intended to drive them from the land, but We drowned him and those with him all together.
(17:104) And We said after Pharaoh to the Children of Israel, “Dwell in the land, and when there comes the promise of the Hereafter, We will bring you forth in [one] gathering.”
(43:46) And certainly did We send Moses with Our signs to Pharaoh and his establishment, and he said, “Indeed, I am the messenger of the Lord of the worlds.”
(43:47) But when he brought them Our signs, at once they laughed at them.
(43:48) And We showed them not a sign except that it was greater than its sister, and We seized them with affliction that perhaps they might return [to faith].
(43:49) And they said [to Moses], “O magician, invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. Indeed, we will be guided.”
(43:50) But when We removed from them the affliction, at once they broke their word.
(43:51) And Pharaoh called out among his people; he said, “O my people, does not the kingdom of Egypt belong to me, and these rivers flowing beneath me; then do you not see?
(43:52) Or am I [not] better than this one who is insignificant and hardly makes himself clear?
(43:53) Then why have there not been placed upon him bracelets of gold or come with him the angels in conjunction?”
(43:54) So he bluffed his people, and they obeyed him. Indeed, they were [themselves] a people defiantly disobedient [of Allah].
(43:55) And when they angered Us, We took retribution from them and drowned them all.
(43:56) And We made them a precedent and an example for the later peoples.
(73:14) On the Day the earth and the mountains will convulse and the mountains will become a heap of sand pouring down.
(73:15) Indeed, We have sent to you a Messenger as a witness upon you just as We sent to Pharaoh a messenger.
(73:16) But Pharaoh disobeyed the messenger, so We seized him with a ruinous seizure.
(79:15) Has there reached you the story of Moses? –
(79:16) When his Lord called to him in the sacred valley of Tuwa,
(79:17) “Go to Pharaoh. Indeed, he has transgressed.
(79:18) And say to him, ‘Would you [be willing to] purify yourself
(79:19) And let me guide you to your Lord so you would fear [Him]?'”
(79:20) And he showed him the greatest sign,
(79:21) But Pharaoh denied and disobeyed.
(79:22) Then he turned his back, striving.
(79:23) And he gathered [his people] and called out
(79:24) And said, “I am your most exalted lord.”
(79:25) So Allah seized him in exemplary punishment for the last and the first [transgression].
(79:26) Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [ Allah ].
(61:5) And when Moses said to his people, “O my people, why do you harm me while you certainly know that I am the messenger of Allah to you?” And when they deviated, Allah caused their hearts to deviate. And Allah does not guide the defiantly disobedient people.
(4:153) The People of the Scripture ask you to bring down to them a book from the heaven. But they had asked of Moses [even] greater than that and said, “Show us Allah outright,” so the thunderbolt struck them for their wrongdoing. Then they took the calf [for worship] after clear evidences had come to them, and We pardoned that. And We gave Moses a clear authority.
(4:154) And We raised over them the mount for [refusal of] their covenant; and We said to them, “Enter the gate bowing humbly”, and We said to them, “Do not transgress on the Sabbath”, and We took from them a solemn covenant.
(4:155) And [We cursed them] for their breaking of the covenant and their disbelief in the signs of Allah and their killing of the prophets without right and their saying, “Our hearts are wrapped”. Rather, Allah has sealed them because of their disbelief, so they believe not, except for a few.
(4:156) And [We cursed them] for their disbelief and their saying against Mary a great slander,
(4:157) And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain.
(4:158) Rather, Allah raised him to Himself. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.
(5:20) And when Moses said to his people, “O my people, remember the favor of Allah upon you when He appointed among you prophets and made you possessors and gave you that which He had not given anyone among the worlds.
(5:21) O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has assigned to you and do not turn back [from fighting in Allah ‘s cause] and [thus] become losers.”
(5:22) They said, “O Moses, indeed within it is a people of tyrannical strength, and indeed, we will never enter it until they leave it; but if they leave it, then we will enter.”
(5:23) Said two men from those who feared [to disobey] upon whom Allah had bestowed favor, “Enter upon them through the gate, for when you have entered it, you will be predominant. And upon Allah rely, if you should be believers.”
(5:24) They said, “O Moses, indeed we will not enter it, ever, as long as they are within it; so go, you and your Lord, and fight. Indeed, we are remaining right here.”
(5:25) [Moses] said, “My Lord, indeed I do not possess except myself and my brother, so part us from the defiantly disobedient people.”
(5:26) [ Allah ] said, “Then indeed, it is forbidden to them for forty years [in which] they will wander throughout the land. So do not grieve over the defiantly disobedient people.”
(8:50) And if you could but see when the angels take the souls of those who disbelieved… They are striking their faces and their backs and [saying], “Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire.
(8:51) That is for what your hands have put forth [of evil] and because Allah is not ever unjust to His servants.”
(8:52) [Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and of those before them. They disbelieved in the signs of Allah, so Allah seized them for their sins. Indeed, Allah is Powerful and severe in penalty.
(8:53) That is because Allah would not change a favor which He had bestowed upon a people until they change what is within themselves. And indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing.
(8:54) [Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and of those before them. They denied the signs of their Lord, so We destroyed them for their sins, and We drowned the people of Pharaoh. And all [of them] were wrongdoers.
(6:154) Then We gave Moses the Scripture, making complete [Our favor] upon the one who did good and as a detailed explanation of all things and as guidance and mercy that perhaps in [the matter of] the meeting with their Lord they would believe.
(6:155) And this [Qur’an] is a Book We have revealed [which is] blessed, so follow it and fear Allah that you may receive mercy.
(32:23) And We certainly gave Moses the Scripture, so do not be in doubt over his meeting. And we made the Torah guidance for the Children of Israel.
(37:114) And We did certainly confer favor upon Moses and Aaron.
(37:115) And We saved them and their people from the great affliction,
(37:116) And We supported them so it was they who overcame.
(37:117) And We gave them the explicit Scripture,
(37:118) And We guided them on the straight path.
(37:119) And We left for them [favorable mention] among later generations:
(37:120) “Peace upon Moses and Aaron.”
(37:121) Indeed, We thus reward the doers of good.
(37:122) Indeed, they were of Our believing servants.
(62:5) The example of those who were entrusted with the Torah and then did not take it on is like that of a donkey who carries volumes [of books]. Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people.
(33:69) O you who have believed, be not like those who abused (annoyed) Moses; then Allah cleared him of what they said. And he, in the sight of Allah, was distinguished.
(33:70) O you who have believed, fear Allah and speak words of appropriate justice.
(4:163) Indeed, We have revealed to you, [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. And we revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the book [of Psalms].
(4:164) And [We sent] messengers about whom We have related [their stories] to you before and messengers about whom We have not related to you. And Allah spoke to Moses with [direct] speech.
(4:165) [We sent] messengers as bringers of good tidings and warners so that mankind will have no argument against Allah after the messengers. And ever is Allah Exalted in Might and Wise.
(6:91) And they did not appraise Allah with true appraisal when they said, “Allah did not reveal to a human being anything.” Say, “Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much. And you were taught that which you knew not – neither you nor your fathers.” Say, “Allah [revealed it].” Then leave them in their [empty] discourse, amusing themselves.
(6:92) And this is a Book which We have sent down, blessed and confirming what was before it, that you may warn the Mother of Cities and those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter believe in it, and they are maintaining their prayers.
(3:11) [Theirs is] like the custom of the people of Pharaoh and those before them. They denied Our signs, so Allah seized them for their sins. And Allah is severe in penalty.
(41:45) And We had already given Moses the Scripture, but it came under disagreement. And if not for a word that preceded from your Lord, it would have been concluded between them. And indeed they are, concerning the Qur’an, in disquieting doubt.
(41:46) Whoever does righteousness – it is for his [own] soul; and whoever does evil [does so] against it. And your Lord is not ever unjust to [His] servants.

60 – The book of the stories of the Prophets
P.376 no. 3396.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned the night of his Al-Isra (journey by night to the heavens) and said, “The Prophet Moses (Musa) was brown, and tall person as if from the people of the tribe of Shanu’a. Jesus (Isa) was a curly-haired man of moderate height.” He also mentioned Malik, the gate-keeper of the (Hell) fire, and Ad-Dajjal.
Narrated Ibn Abbas: When the Prophet (peace be upon him) came to Al-Madina, he found (the Jews) observing fast on the day of Ashura (i.e. 10th of Muharram). They used to say: “This is a great day on which Allah saved Moses (Musa) and drowned the folk of Pharaoh (Fir’aun). Moses (Musa) observed the fast on this day, as a sign of gratitude to Allah.” The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “I am closer to Moses than they.” So, he observed the fast (on that day) and ordered (the Muslims) to observe fasting on that day.
Narrated Abu Sa’id: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “People will be struck with unconsciousness on the Day of Resurrection and I will be the first to regain consciousness, and behold! There I will see Moses (Musa) holding one of the pillars of Allah’s Throne. I will wonder whether he has become conscious before me or he has been exempted, because of his unconsciousness at the Tur (mountain) which he received (on the earth).”
Narrated Sa’id bin Jubair: I said to Ibn Abbas, “Nauf Al-Bikali claims that Moses(Musa), the companion of Al-Khidr was not Moses (the Prophet) of the Children of Israel, but some other Moses (Musa).” Ibn Abbas said, “Allah’s enemy (i.e. Nauf) has told a lie. Ubai in Ka’b told us that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, ‘Once Moses (Musa) stood up and addressed Bani Israel. He was asked who was the most learned man amongst the people. He said, ‘I’. Allah admonished him as he did not attribute absolute knowledge to Him (Allah). So, Allah said to him, ‘Yes, at the junction of the two seas there is a slave of Mine who is more learned than you.’ Moses (Musa) said, ‘O my Lord! How can I meet him?’ Allah said, ‘Take a fish and put it in a basket and you will find him at the place where you will lose the fish.’ Moses (Musa) took a fish and put it in a basket and proceeded along with his boy-servant, Yusha bin Nun, till they reached the rock where they laid their heads (i.e. lay down). Moses (Musa) slept, and the fish, moving out of the basket, fell into the sea.
‘It took its way into the sea (straight) as in a tunnel. Allah stopped the flow of water over the fish and it became like an arch (the Prophet, peace be upon him, pointed out this arch with his hands). They traveled the rest of the night, and the next day. Moses (Musa) said to his boy-servant, ‘Bring us our early meal; indeed, we have suffered much fatigue in this journey of ours.’ Moses (Musa) did not feel tired till he crossed that place which Allah had ordered him to seek after. His boy-servant said to him, ‘Do you know that when we betook ourselves to the rock, I indeed forgot the fish, and none but Satan made me forgot to remember it. It took its course into the sea in a strange way?’ So there was tunnel for the fish and for them (Moses and his servant) there was astonishment. Moses (Musa) said, ‘That is what we have been seeking.’ So, both of them went back retracing their footsteps till they reached the rock. There they saw a many lying covered with a garment. Moses (Musa) greeted him and he replied saying, ‘Is there such a greeting in your land?’ Moses (Musa) said, ‘I am Moses (Musa).’ The man asked, ‘Moses of Bani Israel?’ Moses (Musa) said, ‘Yes, I have come to you so that you may teach me something of that knowledge which you have been taught (by Allah).’ He said, ‘O Moses! I have some of the knowledge of Allah, which Allah has taught me, and which you do not know, while you have some of the knowledge of Allah which Allah has taught you and which I do not know.’ Moses (Musa) asked, ‘May I follow you?’ He said, ‘But you will not be able to remain patient with me, for how can you be patient about things which you know not?’ Moses (Musa) said, ‘You will find me, if Allah will, truly patient, and I will not disobey you in aught.’
So, both of them set out walking along the seashore, a ship passed by them and they asked the crew of the boat to take them on board. The crew recognized Al-Khidr and they took them on board without fare. When they were on board the ship, a sparrow came and stood on the edge of the boat and dipped its beak once or twice into the sea. Al-Khidr said to Moses (Musa), ‘O Moses! My knowledge and your knowledge have not decreased Allah’s Knowledge except as much as this sparrow has decreased the water of the sea with its beak.’ Then suddenly Al-Khidr took an adze and plucked a plank, and Moses (Musa) did not notice it till he had plucked a plank with the adze. Moses (Musa) said to him, ‘What have you done? They took us on board charging us nothing; yet you have intentionally made a hole in their ship so as to drown its passengers. Verily, you have done a dreadful thing.’ Al-Khidr replied, ‘Did I not tell you that you would not be able to have patience with me?’ Moses (Musa) replied, ‘Do not blame me for what I have forgotten, and do not be hard upon me for my affair (with you).’ So, the first excuse of Moses (Musa) was that he had forgotten.
When they had left the sea, they passed by a boy playing with other boys. Al-Khidr took hold of the boy’s head and plucked it with his hand like this. (Sufyan, the sub-narrator, pointed with his fingertips as if he was plucking some fruit.) Moses (Musa) said to him, ‘Have you killed an innocent person who has not killed any person? You have really done an horrible thing.’ Al-Khidr said, ‘Did I not tell you that you would not be able to have patience with me?’ Moses (Musa) said, ‘If I ask you about anything after this, keep me not in your company. You have received an excuse from me.’ Then both of them proceeded till they came to some people of a town, and they asked its inhabitants for food but they refused to entertain them as guests. Then they saw therein a wall which was just going to collapse (and Al-Khidr repaired it just by touching it with his hands). (Sufyan, the sub-narrator, pointed with his hands, illustrating how Al-Khidr passed his hands over the wall upwards.) Moses (Musa) said, ‘These are the people whom we have called on, but they neither gave us food, nor entertained us as guests, yet you have repaired their wall. If you had wished, you could have taken wages for it.’ Al-Khidr said, ‘This is the parting between you and me, and I shall tell you the explanation of those things on which you could not remain patience.’”
The Prophet (peace be upon him) added, “We wished that Moses (Musa) could have remained patience by virtue of which Allah might have told us more about their story.” (Sufyan, the sub-narrator, said that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said, “May Allah bestow His Mercy on Moses (Musa)! If he had remained patience, we would have been told further more about their case.”)
Narrated Abu Hurairah: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Al-Khidr was named so, because if he sat over a barren white land, it turned green with plantation after (his) sitting over it.”
Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “(Prophet) Moses (Musa) was a shy person and used to cover his body completely because of his extensive shyness. One of the people of Israel annoyed him by saying, ‘He covers his body in this way only because of some defect in his skin, either leprosy or scrotal hernia, or he has some other defect.’ Allah wished to clear Moses (Musa) of what they said about him, so one day while Moses (Musa) was in seclusion, he took off his clothes and put them on a stone and started taking a bath. When he had finished the bath, he moved towards his clothes so as to take them, but the stone took his clothes and fled; Moses (Musa) picked up his stick and ran after the stone saying, ‘O stone! Give me my garment!’ Till he reached a group of Bani Israel who saw him naked then, and found him the best of what Allah had created, and Allah cleared him of what they had accused him of. The stone stopped there and Moses (Musa) took and put his garment on and started hitting the stone with his stick. By Allah, the stone still has some traces of the hitting, three, four or five marks. This was what Allah said in His Statement:
‘O you who believe! Be not like those who annoyed Moses (Musa), but Allah cleared him of that which they alleged, and he was honourable before Allah.'” (33:69)
Narrated Abu Hurairah: The angel of death was sent to Moses (Musa). When he came to Moses (Musa), Moses slapped him, (and spoiled one of his eyes). The angel returned to his Lord (Allah) and said, “You have sent me to a slave who does not want to die.” Allah (restored his eye and) said, “Return to him and tell him to put his hand on the back of an ox and for every hair that will come under it, he will be granted one year of life.” Moses (Musa) said, “O Lord! What will happen after that?” Allah replied, “Then death.” Moses (Musa) said, “Let it come now.” Moses (Musa) then requested Allah to let him die close to the Sacred Land so much so that he would be at a distance of a stone’s throw from it.” Abu Hurairah added, “Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, ‘If I were there, I would show you his grave below the red sandhill on the side of the road.'”
Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “Adam and Moses (Musa) argued with each other. Moses (Musa) said to Adam, ‘You are Adam whose mistake expelled you from Paradise.’ Adam said to him, ‘You are Moses whom Allah selected as His Messenger and as the one to whom He spoke directly; yet you blame me for a thing which had already been preordained for me by Allah before my creation?’ Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said twice, “So, Adam overpowered Moses (Musa).”
