A tremendous trial of the Jews
Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
‘Aali- Fir-‘awna – (Folk, people, near relatives, religion fellows, servants and children of Pharaoh), Pharaoh was title of the King of Egypt. Usually the people imagine a king of the
who was named as Pharaoh. In fact
it was not the name of one person. But it was surname of the entire kings of Egypt as the title of the king of Egypt was “Khaqan” (Emperor) and the surname of the King of Rome was
Prophet Joseph (Peace be upon Him) brought and populated the Israelite in the
. They lived in the Egypt hundreds of years and their
population reached in hundred thousands. The King of Egypt made them his slaves
and treated them extremely disgracefully and contemptibly. Egypt
Once, the King dreamed at night. He gathered the soothsayers and asked them to interpret his dream in the morning, “I have seen a fire coming from the
. It has besieged the Temple of Jerusalem and begun to burn the ‘Qabtees’
(Egyptians) choosing one by one”. Listening to it the soothsayers told the King
that a child would be born in the Israelite that would become the cause of your
death and fall of the Emperor. Egypt
Pharaoh collected all the nurses and midwives of the country and ordered them, “Whenever any ‘son’ comes into the world by birth in the Israelite, kill him at once. However the girls be left alive.” Due to the orders of the King thousands of the sons of Israelite were killed. After all, the leaders of the
thought, “If all the Israelite
are killed in this manner, who will serve us?” Egypt
Listening to it, the Pharaoh ordered, “Continue killing process for one year and stop it for the next year regularly”. The year in which killing process was postponed, in that year Prophet Aaron (peace be upon Him) was born and in the year killing process was in force, during that period Prophet Moses (Peace be upon Him) came in this world but God, the Most High saved his life with His sound policy and he could not be slain.
The above mentioned verse indicates towards such event. The nation of Pharaoh had put the children of
in so much difficult calamity and
labor. Finally God Almighty set them free from these disasters through His
Prophet Moses (Peace be upon Him). Israel
