Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Section/Ruku 3 [Verses 21 to 27]: A warning in Moses’ history:
Chapter 40: (Al-Mu’min: The Believer)
(Revealed at Makkah: 9 sections; 85 verses)

1. Translation:

21 Have they not travelled in the land and seen what was the end of those who were before them? Mightier than these were they in strength and in fortifications
a in the land, but Allah destroyed them for their sins. And they had none to protect them from Allah.

22 That was because there came to them their messengers with clear arguments, but they disbelieved, so Allah destroyed them. Surely He is Strong, Severe in Retribution.

23 And certainly We sent Moses with Our messages and clear authority,

24 To Pharaoh and Haman and Korah,a but they said: A lying enchanter!

25 So when he brought to them the Truth from Us, they said:a Slay the sons of those who believe with him and keep their women alive. And the plot of the disbelievers is bound to fail.

26 And Pharaoh said: Leave me to slay Moses and let him call upon his Lord. Surely I fear that he will change your religion or that he will make mischief to appear in the land.

27 And Moses said: Truly I seek refuge in my Lord and your Lord from every proud one who believes not in the day of Reckoning.

 2. Commentary:

21a. Athar is plural of athar, which means a mark, and also a monument or memorial of antiquity. Here it is considered to signify great buildings and fortifications (JB). [Back to verse 21]

24a. The words do not indicate that the message to Pharaoh and Haman and Korah was given at one and the same time. All that is meant is that these three were the chief men who did not accept his message and they were destroyed. Of these Korah was an Israelite; see 28:76a. [Back to verse 24]

25a. It is not meant that all the three persons mentioned in the previous verse met Moses with this reply. A perusal of the verses that follow will show that the speaker here is only Pharaoh, as advised by his chiefs, both he and Haman being mentioned by name, the latter in v. 36, while no mention is made of Korah. [Back to verse 25]
