Moses/ Musa (A.S) was chosen by Allah for many characteristics one of which is the fact that he was not afraid to acknowledge his errors and these by the way they wouldn’t be the only examples of how Musa (A.S) retreated to what is right.
Musa (A.S), he threw the Scriptures that Allah had given him just from anger and just shock he just threw the scriptures on the ground and he grabbed his older brother by his hair and by his beard although his brother was older than Musa (A.S) and he began dragging him. Prophet Haroon (A.S) pleaded with Musa (A.S) explaining to him that it’s not his fault.
Moses heart broke to the truth, acknowledged his mistake, repented to Allah and made this following dua:
قَالَ رَبِّ اغْفِرْ لِي وَلِأَخِي وَأَدْخِلْنَا فِي رَحْمَتِكَ ۖ وَأَنتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
“[Moses] said, ‘My Lord, forgive me and my brother and admit us into Your mercy, for You are the most merciful of the merciful.’” (Quran, 7:151)
He would pick up the scrolls from the floor that he threw and that was the end of the problem, see brother sister a sign that Allah has chosen you for Himself and is preparing you for Himself is that your heart falls into submission whenever it hears the term this is halal, this is Haram, this is doubtful. This is not ours, this is not from our Ummah. This is the obligation this is the prohibition, your heart submits when you are advised with good manners and with evidence, you rush to make amendments to your relationships, your secret habits, your secret conversations, your business dealings even if they are enormous, your manners, your physical appearance, your dress code, your social media, you submit to the truth.
Another one of the hallmarks in the life of prophet Musa (A.s) that made him a person who was qualified to be prepared by Allah for Allah was his patience.
Our prophet (saw) would console himself sometimes with the difficult circumstances by remembering the Sira of prophet Musa (A.s).
Remember that above the universe is a Lord who is watching and A Lord who is allowing matters to unfold in the ways which they are. But why are we experiencing this worldwide trial? the answer is in the story that you just heard.
So we have just understood that for those who Allah loves, they may come hand in hand, love of Allah and test they may come hand in hand, this is how we must see our difficult situation as Muslims today. As Allah said to Moosa (A.S) in order that you may be brought up under My eye. We are being brought back to our senses as Muslims. Allah is raising us under His eye. Our hardships, as Muslims undoubtedly they are like none other. But why? Because the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said about you said about us. He said you are the last of 70 nations which Allah has created. however you are the greatest and most honourable of these nations in the sight of Allah (swt).
Moses (a.s) was being prepared for greatness and this Ummah is being prepared for greatness and so we will have to experience the exact same process that prophet Musa (A.s) underwent. But the shore for Musa (A.s) was near and our Shore is just as near as well. Allah said has full power and control will over his affairs but most people they don’t know. – Shaykh Ali Hammuda
