Important explanations from Surat al-Qasas regarding the Prophet Moses (pbuh)
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated September 18th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim
GUEST: Surat al-Qasas
ADNAN OKTAR: Surat al-Qasas, which page?
GUEST: It is the 387th page
ADNAN OKTAR: You read from the verses.
GUEST: Shall read in Turkish Master?
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes read in Turkish
GUEST: Insha'Allah. I seek refuge with Allah from the cursed satan. [Surat Al-Qasas, 23-26] "When he arrived at the water of Madyan, he found a crowd of people drawing water there. Standing apart from them, he found two women, holding back their sheep. He said, 'What are you two doing here?' They said, 'We cannot draw water until the shepherds have driven off their sheep. You see our father is a very old man.' So he drew water for them and then withdrew into the shade and said, 'My Lord, I am truly in need of any good You have in store for me.'"
"One of them came walking shyly up to him and said, 'My father invites you so that he can pay you your wage for drawing water for us.' When he came to him and told him the whole story he said, 'Have no fear, you have escaped from wrongdoing people.' One of them said, 'Hire him, father. The best person to hire is someone strong and trustworthy.'"
ADNAN OKTAR: Look, now I am explaining a point that I have explained many times before. Those women looked very carefully to the Prophet Moses (pbuh). And he carefully looked at them as well. And they have concluded that the Prophet Moses (pbuh) is very sturdy. Secondly; they have spoken to him and they have concluded that he is trustworthy. With his expression, with his speaech they have concluded he is trustworthy. This is the verse of the Qur'an.
ADNAN OKTAR: Why would a person be regarded as trustworthy? Because he is faithful. Why do those women love the Prophet Moses (pbuh)? Because of his faith which is also the reason why he is trustworthy.So what is the reason for love? It is faith. Yes, let us continue.
GUEST: [ Surat al-Qasas; 27-32] "He said, 'I would like to marry you to one of these two daughters of mine on condition that you work for me for eight full years. If you complete ten, that is up to you. I do not want to be hard on you. You will find me, Allah willing, to be one of the salihun.'"
"He said, 'That is agreed between me and you. Whichever of the two terms I fulfil, there should be no bad feeling towards me. Allah is Guardian over what we say.'"
ADNAN OKTAR: Okay. Let us continue
GUEST: "When Moses had fulfilled the appointed term and had set off with his family, he noticed a fire from one side of the Mount. He said to his family, 'Stay here, I can see a fire. Hopefully I will bring you back some news from it or a burning branch from the fire so that you will be able to warm yourselves.'"
"But when he reached it a voice called out to him from the right hand side of the valley in the part which was full of blessing, from out of the bush: 'Moses, I am Allah, the Lord of all the worlds."
"Throw down your staff!' Then when he he saw it slithering like a snake he turned and fled and did not turn back again. 'Moses, approach and have no fear! You are one of those who are secure."
"Put your hand inside your shirt front. It will emerge pure white yet quite unharmed. And hug your arms to your sides to still your fear. These are two proofs from your Lord for Pharaoh and his ruling circle. They are a deviant people.'"
ADNAN OKTAR: Why do they have weak faith? And why is there a need for miracles? Because the most important matter is to show and explain the signs leading to faith to people. Why does Almighty Allah want him to throw his staff? Why does He want them to witness a staff turning into a snake? Because those people believe in evolution. They are poisoned by their faith in evolution and they do not believe, they are atheists. Allah wants them to be saved from atheism and turn to the belief in Creation, belief in the Creation of Allah. That is why He creates proof. Yes, let us continue.
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha'Allah.
GUEST: [Surat al-Qasas; 33-35] "He said, 'My Lord, I killed one of them and I am afraid they will kill me; and my brother Aaron is more eloquent than me so send him with me to support me and back me up. I am afraid they will call me a liar.'"
"He said, 'We will reinforce you with your brother and by Our Signs will give you both authority, so that they will not be able to lay a hand on you. You and those who follow you will be the victors.'"
ADNAN OKTAR: Yes, the party of Allah will be victorious, insha'Allah.
GUEST: [Surat al-Qasas; 36] "But when Moses brought them Our Clear Signs they said, 'This is nothing but trumped-up magic. We never heard anything like this among our earlier forefathers.'"
ADNAN OKTAR: What is this? It is weakness of faith. What are the evidences, miracles shown there? The evidence that will reinforce their faith, that will convice them in mind and heart. What is the subject? How to remove the weakness of faith.. It is explicitly seen that we are on the right path. Yes, let us continue.
GUEST: [Surat al-Qasas; 37,38] "Moses said, 'My Lord knows best who has come with guidance from Him and who will have the best Home in the end. The wrongdoers will certainly not be successful.'"
"Pharaoh said, 'Council, I do not know of any other god for you apart from me. Haman, kindle a fire for me over the clay and build me a lofty tower so that perhaps I may be able to climb up to Moses's God! I consider him a blatant liar.'"
ADNAN OKTAR: Again due to weakness of faith; due to the materialist mindset, it is seen that he [the Pharaoh] faces a deadlock and utters nonsensical logic. Just as how Darwinists talk nonsense, he talks nonsense there as well.
GUEST: [Surat al-Qasas;39] "He and his troops were arrogant in the land without any right. They thought that they would not return to Us."
ADNAN OKTAR: Disbelievers have always tried to supress people with military power. There is reference to this fact in the Qur’an.
GUEST: [Surat al-Qasas; 40-43] "So We seized him and his troops and flung them into the sea. See the final fate of the wrongdoers!"
"We made them leaders, summoning to the Fire, and on the Day of Rising they will not be helped."
"We pursued them with a curse in this world and on the Day of Rising they will be hideous and spurned."
"We gave Moses the Book after destroying the earlier nations, to awaken people's hearts and as a guidance and a mercy so that hopefully they would pay heed."
ADNAN OKTAR: Allah praises the Torah there. Read that verse again.
GUEST: Masha'Allah. [Surat al-Qasas; 43] "We gave Moses the Book after destroying the earlier nations, to awaken people's hearts and as a guidance and a mercy so that hopefully they would pay heed."
ADNAN OKTAR: So this Book is not completely lost. The right parts are still valid.
