Brief Notes From The Lecture:

  • Sūrah Al- Arʿāf; (7:124-126)
  • Allāh says,

‎لَأُقَطِّعَنَّ أَيْدِيَكُمْ وَأَرْجُلَكُم مِّنْ خِلَافٍ ثُمَّ لَأُصَلِّبَنَّكُمْ أَجْمَعِينَ

“I will surely cut off your hands and your feet on opposite sides; then I will surely crucify you all."

قَالُوا إِنَّا إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا مُنقَلِبُونَ

“They said, "Indeed, to our Lord we will return.””

‎وَمَا تَنقِمُ مِنَّا إِلَّا أَنْ آمَنَّا بِآيَاتِ رَبِّنَا لَمَّا جَاءَتْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ

“And you do not resent us except because we believed in the signs of our Lord when they came to us. Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let us die as Muslims [in submission to You]."

  • After the magicians repented from magic and disbelief, Firʿawn threatened them with cutting off their hands and feet and crucifixion.
  • They responded with the promise of returning to their Lord and supplication.
  • The supplication they made to Allāh contains many benefits for every believer at every time and place.
  • As mentioned by Ibn ʿAbbās and others, Ibn Kathīr said concerning those who made this supplication, “At the beginning of the day they were magicians and disbelievers and at the end of the day they were martyrs.”
  • The believers were resolute and firm upon their belief. They openly proclaimed to Firʿawn instead of hiding in fear.
  • Allāh guided them to Īmān. They understood and had knowledge that the punishment Firʿawn would inflict on them, was nothing in comparison to the punishment of Allāh.
  • They would be patient with the punishment of Firʿawn in this world, in order to escape the punishment of Allāh in the next.
  • Compare such believers to those today who are quick to compromise their religion.
  • People are easily persuaded by groups that call to the oneness of religions, claiming that they will all go to Paradise. Allāh says, “Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures.” (Sūrah Al-Bayyinah; 98:6)
  • Those involved in such movements must remain patient, return to the Qur’ān and look to the examples of the people of the past.
  • These believers did not have forty or fifty years to build their faith.
  • “And you do not resent us except because we believed in the signs of our Lord” clarifies that the only reason Firʿawn took vengeance on them was because they believed in Mūsá.
  • This was from the most praiseworthy of deeds, best of actions and greatest of virtues because they were seeking the pleasure of Allāh.
  • In this difficult time, they turned to Allāh. As Allāh says, ‎أَمَّن يُجِيبُ الْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ
  • “Is He [not best] who responds to the desperate one when he calls upon Him…” (Sūrah Al-Naml; 27:62)
  •  They turned to Allāh with supplication:

‎رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ

“Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let us die as Muslims.”

  • They asked Allāh to make them firm upon their religion and to grant them patience on this path.
  • The Prophet () would often supplicate:

‎يَا مُقَلِّبَ الْقُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِى عَلَى دِينِكَ
“O, Changer of hearts, make my heart firm upon this religion.”

  • Imām As-Saʾidī (رحمه الله) said concerning this, that which is apparent from this story is that Firʿawn actually subjected them to the torture he threatened them with and Allāh made them firm upon faith.
  • We should apply this example in our lives; when in difficulty, contemplate upon these verses and return to this supplication;

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ
