It is obligatory upon every believer to have firm conviction on what Allah has mentioned in the Qur’an. They must have belief that whatever is mentioned in the Qur’an is the truth and there is not a doubt on even one letter of the Qur’an. To have the slightest amount of doubt regarding the Qur’an will render a person out of the fold of Islam (may Allah preserve our faith, Ameen). It is incorrect to compare the Qur’an to historical and archeological research and judge Qur’an through their scope and understanding. Firstly, historical data has always been tampered with and has been influenced many a times by people’s emotions and understanding of history. Secondly, historians and archeologist reject anything for which they have not found any proof. Not being able to find any ‘proofs’ does not negate the whole incident and render the incident false. It merely means they weren’t able to discover any archeological proofs. Thirdly, the Word of Allah is superior than any science or history. Therefore, if even some historical information or scientific and archeological fact appears contradictory to the teachings of the Qur’an, then we will hold fast to the Qur’an and leave aside all others.
Note : Prophet Moosa is also known as Prophet Musa or Moses
Firaun is also known as Pharaoh
Prophet Moosa (AS) was born at the time of Fir’aun. Fir’aun was a king who hated the Bani Israa’eel, who were the tribe of Prophet Moosa (AS).
A short while before Prophet Moosa (AS) was born, Fir’aun was told that a boy from the Bani Israa’eel would soon be born and at whose hands Fir’aun’s kingdom would be destroyed. On hearing this, the cruel king ordered that every male child born to the Bani Israa’eel should be killed.

Firoun [Pharaoh] Saw A Dream, He Was Told That It Means That There Will Be A Man From The Children Of Israel Who Will Take Away Your Kingdom And Will Destroy Your Army And Your People, And Firoun Heard That Interpretation, He Said: Easy; We’ll Take Care Of That, Any Child That Is Born, Kill Him, Allah Says That The Family Firoun Picked Him Up And Then the Wife Of Firoun, Asiya AS, What Did She Say: A Source Of Joy For Me And You, Don’t Kill Him, And Asiya Is The One Who Raised Up Sayyidina Musa, So For Him She Was Like A Second Mother, But Just Imagine How It Must Have Been For Her At This Moment Of Time, A Woman Living With A Man Who Believes Himself To Be God, And She Knows Of Course All Of His Imperfections Because She’s His Wife, She Lived With Firoun, She Knows Who Firoun Is Like The Rest Of The Human Being And He Is Not Capable Of Anything More Than What The Creation Of Allah Is Capable Of, So He’s Living In The Palace Of Firoun, She Is The Queen, She Has Everything A Women Seeking Dunya Can Ask For, She Has Everything That Dunya Can Offer, But The Thing That Was Missing There Was Islam And Imaan, She Believed In Allah SWT And The Message Of Sayyidina Musa, O Firoun I Have Disbelieved In You, I Don’t Care What You’re Gonna Do And I Believe In The Message Of Musa And Harun The Lord Of All The Worlds, Firoun Said Do You Know What I Will Do Too You, He Was Shocked, She Said: I Know And I Don’t Care, Subhanallah, I Don’t Care Do What You Want, Asiya Was An Example Of Bravery And Courage And She Did Not Wield Under The Pressure Of Firoun, She Was Crucified And In Some Reports She Was Stretched Out On The Floor And She Would Be Whipped And She Would BE Tortured And Persecuted, The Angels Shaded Her, The Angels Shaded And She Laughed And Firoun Said To The Guards, Look How Crazy This Women Is, And She Laughed And She Laughed And She Laughed Until Firoun Got Frustrated And He Said: Do You Know What This Women Is Not Coming Back To Her Senses, Go To The Highest Cliff, Tie Her Under There And Push Off A Boulder So That Would Smash Her Body In To Pieces.
From the first moments after birth, a child begins to learn. Some children speak at the age of two and some; well before. But how does a baby learn when it doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong?
Knowledge is not only gained by mentally assigning yourself, it is also gained through features given by Allah Taa’la, i.e. the eyes and the ears etc. The correct use of these bounties that Allah Taa’la has bestowed upon us is another way of thanking Allah Taa’la for them.
Many people question the importance of knowledge. In a Hadith it states:
“It is compulsory on every Muslim to seek knowledge.”
This Hadith clarifies that to seek and obtain knowledge is compulsory for every Muslim, but what knowledge is regarded here?
Each human who can afford to study, complete their studies finishing with PhDs and Masters in particular subjects, the Hadith states, “On every Muslim.” What will be the difference between a Muslim and a non-Muslim if we all acquire the same knowledge? The emphasis on, “On every Muslim” in this Hadith indicates knowledge specific to a Muslim, which infers the Deen (Religion) of Allah.
Kaan Ya Makaan, Fee Qadeem Al-Zamaan…
There was a Place, in Times of Old…
Called Egypt where lived an Israelite man, named Qaroon, who was the proud owner of a fortune so vast and plentiful that he had to dedicate special rooms in his palace to housing said wealth. Qaroon had rooms that contained nothing but cases full of gold, other rooms housed trunks brimming with silver, and in yet more rooms were bags stuffed full of gems and precious stones. All these treasure rooms he kept locked tight with a myriad of keys that, when placed together, defied even the strongest of men to carry away.

The 10th of Muharram marks the day Musa (peace be upon him) and the Children of Israel were saved from Pharaoh and his army. Historically, Jews would keep a fast to mark this occasion and Muslims have continued this tradition by keeping an optional fast on this day as well as an additional fast a day before or a day after. The incident is mentioned in various places in the Qur’an and it is also mentioned in the Old Testament in the ‘Book of Exodus’.
The story of the splitting of the sea is well known but what lessons can we learn from this? Here are 5 lessons we can learn from Musa’s escape from Pharaoh.
The Prophet (saw) got his leadership training directly from Allah (SWT), through the Qur’aan. Let us discuss the glorious legacy of our beloved Rasul (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), specifically the instructions he received from Allah (SWT) which in turn made him into a leader whose name is the most oft recited name throughout the world. This intensive will be a thematic tafseer touching upon how the Qur’an shaped the mission and leadership of the Prophet (saw). It will also highlight how the various stories of the past Prophets supported, inspired, and served as powerful lessons for the Prophet (saw). This class will lead you to view the Qur’an from a perspective that you have never experienced before and will give you newfound insight in the role the Qur’an should play in our lives today.
This body was only discovered in 1898, This is the dead body of Ramses II, the Egyptian Pharaoh in the era of Prophet Moses (Musa) (Peace Be Upon Him). Its age is approximately 3000 years old and it was found by the Red Sea and is now on display in the Royal Mummies Museum in Cairo.
But the Quran existed nearly 1400 years ago.
“Today we will preserve your body so you can be a sign for people who come after you. Surely many people are heedless of our signs.”
“This is a proclamation for the people, to be warned herewith, and to let them know that He is only one God, and for those who possess intelligence to take heed.”
