فَأْتِيَا فِرْعَوْنَ فَقُولَا إِنَّا رَسُولُ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿١٦
surah Shua'raaa)(قَالَ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا ۖ إِن كُنتُم مُّوقِنِينَ (24
Go to Pharaoh and say, 'We are the messengers of the Lord of the worlds, -----[Moses] said, "The Lord of the heavens and earth and that between them, if you should be convinced."
These ayah made me think that its a nature's joke. Firoun is reminding Hazrat Moosa A.S.of his blessings on him. He took care of him when he was young. Provided all necessary things which are needed for an infant's upbringing. He was brought up in his palace under special attention and no doubt Firoun and his wife gave Hazrat Moosa all their love and care. He reminds him how Hazrat Moosa had committed a mistake and Firoun had overlooked it. Allaah ta'ala after giving Hazrat Moosa prophethood asked him to go to Firoun and ask him whether he comes to right path or allows "Bani Israel" to go with Hazrat Moosa A.S. away from Firoun's tenacy. When Hazrat Moosa A.S. went to Firoun with Allaah's message Firoun was angry that he wass standing against him. After all that benevolence, the result is rebellion!! This was the part where I wanted to laugh at Firoun. And I thought, look who's talking. Imagine the situation; he's reminding Hazrat Moosa of his being a blessed guardian when in fact he is the one who forgot his Guardian. Who created him from nothing. First he was just a clot of blood, from that he was made a grown man. And yet he's denying the One so Powerful, Exalted. The Rab-bul-Aalaameen. Whose authority is like He says "KUN" "Be done" and it is "FAYA-KOON" "done" Firoun is challenging Allaah ta'ala. He claimed that he's the god (Allaah forbid), he asked people to prostrate in front of him. Why did he forget his status. And he is calling Hazrat Moosa a thankless person! Absurd!! Doesn't it sound funny?
Didn't Firoun think that like he's angry on Hazrat Moosa's thanklessness(in his idea), after all he did for him, likewise Allaah ta'ala is angered on his actions , his proud nature. Like Firoun poses himself as god. Whose god? what he is capable of? He didn't even create himself. What can Firoun do? He is as powerless and insignificant in front of Allaah as any other ordinary peasant in his rule for him and yet he forgets, he forgets and he is proud of it. How dare he!! Allaah ta'ala is the one who is the Owner of all easts and wests. He owns every single grain, every minuscule particle of sand and even of things smaller then that. Firoun is the rebellion and not Hazrat Moosa. Hazrat Moosa is in fact a thankful, obedient slave of Allaah.
فَأَخَذَهُ اللَّـهُ نَكَالَ الْآخِرَةِ وَالْأُولَىٰ ﴿٢٥﴾ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَعِبْرَةً لِّمَن يَخْشَىٰ
So Allah seized him in exemplary punishment for the last and the first [transgression)(25)-Indeed in that is a warning for whoever would fear [Allah]. (26)
