Summary of Quran Para 20

Here is the summary:

Surat Al-Naml continued

Who saves you when in distress? A further section deals with the question of God, is there a god apart from Allah? They do acknowledge Allah the complete creator with infinite wisdom. So, why not believe? A mysterious creature is mentioned: 82 “When punishment comes upon them, we shall bring out a creature from the Earth that will speak to them; indeed, people did not believe in Our signs. It is therefore the prediction of the Quran and books of hadith that allude to when this beast shall appear he brings with him the end to the beginning of the world.

Surat Al-Qasas – The Story

Surat Al-Qasas continues in Para 20. Afghanistan revealed before the Ascension of Prophet ﷺ on his tenth-year mission. It tells several stories about the life of Musa to demonstrate that history continues imitating itself. An inspiring solace for the Messenger ﷺ and his followers. The book opens the story of Pharaoh’s oppression of Israelites and how he used the “divide and rule” policy to his advantage, it also tells a tale of baby Musa surviving an era when every newborn was killed.

Tale of Baby Musa

2 In the thirteenth century BC, Ramses II was Pharaoh of Egypt. Allah shielded Musa and brought him up in the luxurious palace of His Excellency’s Majesty The story points out the weakness of a worldly king who cannot see friend and foe, yet boasts that he is an “Almighty god”.

Musa kills an Egyptian to protect an Israelite. Musa nearly gets arrested but somehow escapes. He flees Egypt in haste, heading to Madyan across the Arabian Desert. An old man takes him under his protection. Musa agrees to live and work for him in exchange for his daughter. Musa, who was brought up as a prince in the palace now turns into an impoverished shepherd of deserts – there is a clear difference between his previous and current lifestyle. Musa returned to Egypt after ten years. On the way, he meets Mount Sinai where God appoints him as a prophet to invite Pharaoh so that he can accept leadership.

Musa’s Comeback to Egypt

Musa comes back to Egypt after ten years. He travels through Mount Sinai where he is instructed to become a prophet, asking the Pharaoh to embrace wisdom. At last, the Quran puts forward the following reminder; “Surely you were not present on in western side of the mountain when we commanded Musa with Commandments”,(44). It says to Prophet ﷺ. Is this revelation for him a proof?

The Quran rejects Makkans’ call for a written Quran and points out to them that Musa had the Torah engraved on tablets, yet people refused it. However, the Quran goes on to praise those people who believed in it from the Arabs, the Jews, and the Christians: (53–54).

Human Desires

 Surah 29,54-75 It outlines his lavish living, as well as the stinginess and pride. The stories of Pharaoh and Quran reveal human desires to possess worldly power, and wealth, compared with Musa’s modest struggle. The cruel way Pharaoh ruled over his people and the miserliness of the Quran reveals human greed at its ugliest. He attributed his wealth to being knowledgeable and skilled in business, as well as wisdom in temporal matters. Similarly, the leaders of Makkah did not want to believe ~ like them -they were afraid they would lose control over the Kaaba and other accrued wealth.

Surat al-Ankabut – The Spider

Surat al-Ankabut continues Para 20. This is the last surah revealed in Makkah. Its confrontational quality is softened by rational and historical arguments that warn the people of Makkah not to be foolish. This brutal persecution made it deadly to be followers of the beloved Messenger ﷺ. The Surah begins by bringing the advice to believers that life is all about tests and success passed through them. Victory is the reward for jihad, hard work, and endless efforts. Somewhere in between these two endpoints, there are details and processes to achieve success.

The basic axis is the ongoing battle between faith and disbelief of reality versus illusion manifested by Ibrahim vs Nimrod; Musa vs Pharaoh, and Nuh vs his people. Therefore, the Prophet ﷺ is urged to confront hostility from fellow beings such as Abu Jahl and Abu Lahab. The spider’s web is used as a metaphor for the fragility of worldly power compared to Allah’s religion, which has become an eternal source. The Quran mentions “An example of people who take god mates besides Allah is like a spider making its web. “Indeed, ‘The weakest of homes is a spider’s web” (41).
