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 5 [Verses 46 to 56]: Pharaoh’s opposition to Moses:
Chapter 43: (Zukhruf: Gold)
(Revealed at Makkah: 7 sections; 89 verses)

1. Translation:

46 And truly We sent Moses with Our messages to Pharaoh and his chiefs, so he said: I am the messenger of the Lord of the worlds.

47 But when he brought them Our signs, lo! they laughed at them.

48 And We showed them not a sign but it was greater than its fellow,a and We seized them with chastisement that they might turn.

49 And they said: O enchanter, call on thy Lord for us, as He has made the covenant with thee; we shall surely follow guidance.a

50 But when We removed from them the chastisement, lo! they broke the pledge.

51 And Pharaoh proclaimed amongst his people, saying: O my people, is not the kingdom of Egypt mine and these rivers flowing beneath me? Do you not see?

52 Rather I am better than this (fellow) who is contemptible, and can hardly express himself clearly.

53 Why, then, have bracelets of gold not been bestowed on him,a or angels come along with him in procession?b

54 So he incited his people to levity and they obeyed him. Surely they were a transgressing people.

55 Then when they displeased Us, We exacted retribution from them, so We drowned them all together.

56 And We made them a thing past and an example for later generations.

 2. Commentary:

48a. The meaning is that great signs were shown, each sign being greater than the one which preceded it. Just as the word akh means brother or an associate or a like, or a fellow, its fem. ukht means sister, or a like or a fellow (LL). According to R, ukht here means the sign that preceded it. [Back to verse 48]

49a. See Exod. ch. 8, from which it appears that every time a sign was shown Pharaoh entreated Moses to pray for the removal of the punishment, promising that he would not in that case oppose him. [Back to verse 49]

53a. Pharaoh’s suggestion is that, if Moses were the messenger of an Almighty God, he should have been a king, bracelets of gold signifying abundance of wealth. It is shown here that Pharaoh’s objection to Moses was similar to the objection of the Quraish to the Holy Prophet. [Back to verse 53]

53b. That is, Moses should have come with angels, as a king comes with his armies. [Back to verse 53]
