Surah Ta-ha (20) 28/10/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 20 (Ta-ha)

Verse 85

(Allah) said: “We have tested thy people in thy absence: the Samiri has led
them astray.”

After the successful exodus of the Children of Israel across the sea to safety, Musa went up to the mount to receive commandments. In his absence Haroon was in charge and during this time the Samiri deceived the people of Musa and they built an idol. Although the children we physically liberated, mentally they were shackled with the ways of Pharoah. This weakness is
exploited by “charlatans” with trickery. In verse 93 the Samiri says:

“I saw what they saw not: so I took a handful (of dust) from the footprint of the
Messenger, and threw it (into the calf): thus did my soul suggest to me.”

This “superstitious” swindling caught the people of Musa (AS). Are we
mentally liberated? Will we fall for the “charlatans” or stay firmly with the final
revelation – Al Quran.

Continues tomorrow Insha Allah
