We have categorised waswasa (repeated, unfounded doubts and fears) into two kinds: waswasa of thought and waswasa of action. We have already dealt with the first category. Today we shall talk about waswasa of action.
Sometimes people get excessive doubts about the tasks they are doing. For example: while doing wudhu (ablution), performing the ritual bath (Ghusl),performing the prayers etc. They get doubts whether they have performed these actions strictly in accordance to the set norms or not. Such doubts are very harmful for homes. A person who nurses repeated doubts about his own actions becomes an outcast from the society. He can no longer feel love for his home. Those in the audience who have the tendency of doubting their own actions should give particular attention to this talk.
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.

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.
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.”
