Ayah 20: 65-69

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

20:65. They said, “O Moses! Either you throw first or we shall be the first to 
throw.”
66. (Moses) said, “No, you throw”... And behold! By their magic, their 
ropes and staffs appeared (in his imagination) as though they were moving 
rapidly towards him.
67. Moses felt apprehensive inside!
68. We told him, “Do not be afraid! Indeed, you, yes you, shall prevail”
69. “Leave that which is in your right hand and let it swallow what they 
have wrought... For they have only wrought a magician’s trick... A 
magician shall never succeed wherever he may go.”

This event happened in a crowd. 
(Ayah 68,69) how Allah communicated with Moses, so that only Moses heard Allah and nobody else ?

Alaikas Salaam brother, 

It is possible for Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to make Hazrat Moosa (عليه السلام) hear something and others do not hear. Also, Hazrat Moosa (عليه السلام) is known as Kaleemullah. He directly talked to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى).

Wa alaikum assalam,

Definitely it is possible for Allah.

I am asking how Allah did that so only Hazrat Moosa (عليه السلام) can hear something and others do not ?

20:10. How he (Moses) saw a fire and said to his people, “Stay here, indeed I have sensed fire... Perhaps I will bring you an ember from it or find a guide near that fire.”

How/why only Hazrat Moosa (عليه السلام) perceived a fire and nobody else in his family ?

Ayat 42:51

42:51. It is not possible that Allah speaks to a man! 
Only through revelation, or from behind a veil, or by disclosing a Rasul to reveal, by His permission, what He wills! Indeed, He is the Aliy, the Hakim. 

It clearly says it is not possible that Allah speaks to a man.

Then How Allah sends a revelation to Rasul ?

Is this question worth an answer? @eThErEaL

Jibraeel is the angel of revelation and communication so this is one way God communicates with His Prophets

second way is a Prophet may see the whole event in a dream and how and what he is supposed to do and say so its abit like seeing the future and acting like as if you were reading from a script this occured to Imam Hussein and there is a hadeeth about him falling asleep on the way to Karbala while on his horse and seeing what was going to happen next and then based on that recognising where to stop in Karbala and also the reason why he told his group to collect water when they stop at some river to prepare for what was coming next despite that they actually give all the water away to Hur and his army when they meet him

and finally what is so hard to believe that God speaks quietly into the heart of His Prophet which only he can hear? since when does God have to act upon some laws of our and the universes limitations? why does everything have to be how we do it?

The Qur'an does say in a number of places that human perception is something that can vary from person to person and typically better deeds can enhance it and bad ones reduce it. There was a discussion here:

On 11/4/2015 at 10:16 AM, Haji 2003 said:

OK here it is. I used the Shakir translation and simply did a word search for perceive. The following categorisations are fairly basic. People with a better understanding of the issues are welcome to correct/comment.

Perception is shown to be a good thing in 3:52, 12:94, 28:11, 28:29 I.e. we have an account e.g. of Isa ((عليه السلام).) being able to perceive.

On the other hand when people try and deceive others, cause mischief and otherwise do bad things, this has an impact on their ability to perceive e.g.: 2:9, 2:12, 3:69, 6:26, 6:123, 12:15, 27:50, 49:2.

When people do bad things the retribution can be from a source beyond individuals' perception. 16:26, 16:45, 39:25, 68:44.

In addition such unperceived retribution can be sudden, 7:95, 12:107, 26:202, 29:53, 39:55, 43:66

Just wanted to add to the possible meanings of the word 'sudden'. In English, it's commonly understood to mean that something happens quickly or unexpectedly. But people look back over a period of time e.g. their youth, they do often remark that life has passed by very quickly even though it may have spanned a period of years rather than moments.

So the voice Musa (عليه السلام) heard is from his heart, this is very important.

When Moses approached the fire, a voice came out that said:

 “Blessed be Him who is in the fire and around the fire”  “O Moses, I am God, the Majestic and All-wise.”

Yes, this is what Moses listened to in his heart!  
 

Who was speaking to who?

I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart I asked: Who art Thou?
He answered: Thou.

In Qur'an it's written: "it does not behoove a man that Allah should speak to them except through inspiration or from behind the veil or by sending the messenger to reveal". 

It can be through inspiration or by helper or through angel which Prophet Moses could see only.

Allah can let Prophet Musa hear Allah’s words without others hearing it just like you hear your thoughts without others hearing it. It doesn’t necessarily mean that it was told to him in his mind, it could be told to him aloud without others hearing it because Allah did not cover “the veil” from their ears. It’s just like the Prophet that could see Jibraeel without others seeing him. Or like Imam Hassan Al-Askari that could see Imam Al-Mahdi without anyone seeing them both. But in this situation it’s not about seeing but hearing.
