Firstly, this question appears to b a "my Prophet is better than yours" kind of issue, which in Islam is inherently rejected on the basis that they were all together as one brotherhood, on the same mission, sent by the same One True God, so just to be very clear, in that respect, they are brothers to one another and there is no animosity or competition ...
Yes he did. This is proven in the Quran:
وأوحينا إلى موسى وأخيه أن تبوآ لقومكما بمصر بيوتا واجعلوا بيوتكم قبلة وأقيموا الصلاة وبشر المؤمنين
And We inspired to Moses and his brother, "Settle your people in Egypt in houses and make your houses [facing the] qiblah and establish prayer and give good tidings to the believers."
— Quran 10:87
From Tafsir Ibn Kathir:
(في المقام الأول، طلب موسى من الخضر لأنه نسي وعده، ثم جاء طائر وجلس على حافة القارب، غمس منقاره مرة أو مرتين في البحر، وقال الخضر لموسى: فإن المعرفة ومعرفتك، بالمقارنة بمعرفة الله، هي مثل ما أخذه هذا الطائر من البحر ". ثم نزلوا من القارب، وبينما كانوا يسيرون على الشاطئ، رأى الخضر صبيا يلعب مع فأخذ الخضر رأس الصبي وسحبه بيديه ...
This topic has been covered in several tafsir and commentary, but I will quote from the following two sources:
Al-Qurtubi in his tafsir (الجامع لأحكام القرآن)
Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya in his book Bada'i' Al-Fawa-id (بدائع الفوائد)
In summary, this is the proper etiquette that we should all follow when attributing good and evil.
Evil is part of what Allah ...
First of all, I would not make that conclusion, that Allah enjoined something beyond a soul's capacity. He does not do that, because (as you know) Allah says (Sura 2, Verse 286):
<< لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّـهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا ۚ لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ
وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ >>
And at the end of the journey, Allah in fact enjoined five ...
No the Qur'an actually quotes more than that. You've missed to read a few verses earlier:
And We certainly seized the people of Pharaoh with years of famine and a deficiency in fruits that perhaps they would be reminded. (7:130)
And the story itself even begins long before.
Note that the second of two interpretations of "at-Tufan" الطوفان which was ...
Your question is in error. Read the 2nd to last aya in sura 2 of Quran (Al Baqara)(2:285).
Where it says
"We (Muslims) believe in one God, and his angels, his scriptures, and his prophets. We make no distinction between his prophets "
So Muslims cannot say that any prophet is 'better' than another. These comparisons are based on egoism, which is a human ...
Note that عصمة of the Prophets is agreed upon by the Muslims, however they differed on what it entails and from when it is applicable. For example, according to the Ahlul Sunnah it entails protection from intentional sins but not mistakes and forgetfulness, for some also it entails protection from major sins but not from some minor sins. For some, such as ...
I do not know any authentic source (Quran or Sunnah) which explicitly gives in details the contents of the Tablets/Tauraat given to Musa (Peace be upon him). Nor is there proof that the contents were the ten Commandments. There is a Tafseer, that I follow, and am going to use to try answer your question.
All messengers had nine/ten commandments/Wasayah ...
Cause Adam Alayhi salaam is not truly answerable for that. He 'forgot' and made an error in his judgement, he did not willfully disobey Allah Subhanahu wa ta'ala.
And We had already taken a promise from Adam before, but he forgot;
and We found not in him determination.
(Surah Ta-Ha 115)
His going down to the earth was already decided beforehand. ...
Muslims don't regard as prophet Muhammad to be better. This is mentioned in Quran, Al-Baqarah: 285
The Messenger has believed in the Guidance which has been sent down to him from his Lord, and those who believe in the Messenger have also sincerely accepted the same. They all believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books and Messengers. And they say, "We do not ...
To learn more about the story behind the story here are some sources (note for the explicit story of the killed boy there are many different versions on how he was killed Imam al-Qurtoby in his tafsir said one could bring them together):
From Sahih al-Bukhari
From the both Sahihs and Jami' at-Tirmidhi narrated by ibn Jubair.
So the point is that Moses or ...
He did not take it lightly, but although he did not know the reason, he had to trust Al-Khidr because Allah recommended him:
In the story explained by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) :
‘Moses got up to deliver a sermon before Bani Israel and he was asked,
'Who is the most learned person among the people?' Moses replied, 'I
(am the most learned).' Allah then ...
Well so far i can't give you an exact date etc. But according to tafsir ibn Kathir یوم الزینة was the day of festival:
That was the day of their celebration and their New Year's festivity.
It was a holiday for them when they took vacation from their work and
came together for a large gathering. This day was selected so that all
of the people could ...
Quran states the story of some magicians from all around the Egypt who were gathered by Pharaoh to compete with Moses accompanied by his brother Aron --peace be upon them. However, Quran doesn't name any of them, only tells the story that the snake of Moses ate the magics of the magicians and they fell in prostration and became believers in God of Moses as ...
The count of magicians who were brought to face Musa is not exactly known as "Ibn Kathir" in his book "al bedaya wa nehaya" as well as "Al-Suyuti" in his book "Dur al-Manthur" mentioned that there exists several numbers for them as following:
Ibn Abi-Hatem said: 70
kaab Al-Ahbar said: 12,000
Muhammad ibn Ishak said: 15,000
Abi-Amama said: 19,000
No, Muslims are not misinterpreting Surah Al-Imran
According to historians the time between Musa (PBUH) and Issa (Jesus) is 1200 year or more.
It’s for sure Al-Imran in this verse is the family of Maryam (Mary), and not Musa’s , In Quran:
[Mention, O Muhammad], when the wife of 'Imran said, "My Lord, indeed
I have pledged to You what is in my womb, ...
'Imran, 'Amram etc. is a question of "transmission" and adaption in the Arabic language read for example in wikipedia. And also take a look at the picture on Arabic wikipedia.
Whether it is 'Imran, 'Emran, Amram or 'Umran عمرام او عمران is a question of taste and how the name might be adapted in a special language and in the case of Hebrew and Arabic later ...
Allah does not say the following (he does not say 'only'):
So We sent upon them [only] the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people.
He just mentions some of the signs sent to the people of Egypt. There is no reason to assume He means there were only five plagues (It is possible ...
Yes وحي has been sent to other than the prophets.
For example you may find in the Quran of it being sent to the disciples (5:111), to the bees (16:68), to the earth (99:5), to the mother of Moses (28:7, 20:38) etc.
Similarly the hadith that mentions an incident among the Children of Israel when an angel was sent to test them, and the hadith that mentions ...
According to IslamQA, the narration is not found in any known book of ahadith. It is quoted in Nuzhat al-Majalis wa Muntakhab al-Nafa’is without a chain of transmission, so its authenticity is unverifiable.
Objection may also be raised to its content, that a common fasting person from this Ummah has superiority over Moses (عليه السلام). Such a thing is ...
As per scholars of islam, This hadeeth mentioned is not in any of the reliable books, so it is not permissible to attribute it to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) or to believe what it says.
You will find a more detailed answer in the Jewish traditions to this question tough some pointers are available in Islam too.
After the incident of the spitting the Red Sea and the death of Pharoah and his army, the Israelites continued their journey to the Promised Land, they came upon a people who were worshiping idols.
The Israelites requested to have ...
If it has any bearing on how Moses originally prayed, currently Judaism has 3 daily prayers:
Sacharid, the morning prayer
Mincha, the afternoon prayer
Maariv, (Sounds like the Muslim 'Maghrib'), the evening prayer
When we compare these to the 5 salahs of the daily Muslim worship, the most striking difference is that the Jews lay flat on the ground with ...
Firstly, the prohibition of murder is also ordained directly for the Muslims:
ولا تقتلوا النفس التي حرم الله إلا بالحق
And do not kill the soul which Allah has forbidden, except by right.
— Quran 17:33
Secondly, regarding whether a law from the Shariah of the previous nations is applicable to us, such a law will fall into one of the following ...
In the name of Allah, the most compassionate, the most merciful.
As much as I have done a mediocre research, there doesn't seem to be such narration of Mubahala between Moses and Qaroon according to Shia Hadiths (Islamic narrations), but the hadith of Mubahala which have been mentioned is relevant to the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) and the ...
Although it is outdated question, I want to answer to this question.
Let's consider Hud 69:70. We can see that Allah sent angels in the form of human. As Ibrahim did not know that they are angels and prepared them a cow. They did not eat it, and Ibrahim became afraid. Up to that moment Ibrahim was not aware that there are angels. But they revealed ...
