Musaa (as): The Story of Love and Devotion

Musaa, or Moses, played a pivotal role in shaping the practices and beliefs of both the Jews and Muslims. He is mentioned in both the Quran and the Torah, and is regarded as a major prophet in Islam.

The story of Musaa begins with its mention in the Quran (26:10-66), where it says that he was handed the Torah (or Tawrat) by Allah. The narrative goes on to tell us that Musaa was a merciful man, chosen by Allah to lead his people out of bondage in Egypt.

When Musaa’s wife and infant son fell ill, he turned to Allah (swt) for help, as is recounted in Surah Ash-Shuara (26:121-127). Allah responded to Musaa’s request by revealing to him the miracle of the Staff, which caused a sudden growth and parting of the Red Sea, allowing the Israelites to cross over unharmed.

The lessons we can learn from Musaa’s story are numerous. He was a meek and humble believer, devoted to serving Allah (swt). He loyally adhered to Allah’s commands, submitting completely to Allah’s will.

Musaa’s devotion to Allah is reflected in his leadership style. He led his people with compassion and mercy, showing them Allah’s path and becoming a role model for the Jewish community.

Isaac (as): The Lesson of Trust and Sacrifice

Abraham (or Ibrahim in Arabic), known as Khalilullah (friend of Allah), was a major prophet in Islam, and Prophet Moses’ grandfather. Among his sons, Isaac (Ismail’s half-brother) is also prophet in Islam, blessed with his own stories and distinctive features.

The story of Abraham’s sacrifice is told in Surah As-Saffat (37:102-107), where it is highlighted that when Allah (swt) called upon Abraham for sacrifice, He presented himself as a willing participant

The story of Abraham’s sacrifice teaches us the significance of trust and obedience to Allah (swt). Isaac’s devotion to Allah in submission reflects the pure love and faith he had towards his creator.

Idrees (as): The Significance of Prayer and Faith

Idrees (Enoch) was the Prophet before AI-Ambiya (Prophets) in Arabia, mentioned in the Quran as Prophet of Allah in Surah Al-Baqarah (2:139)), Surah Maryam (19:56), and Surah Sad (38:71-74).

According to the Islamic accounts from the Quran (17:61-65), written reports (Hadith), and historical records (Sira), Idrees experienced forty years of worship and prayer, testifying through the deliverance of his own son (adoptive or biological) to sell him into slavery.

The lesson of Idrees’ story is that of persistence and dedication. He devoted his entire life to prayer and worship, focusing all his energy and time on his relationship with Allah (swt). His story teaches us the power of prayer, and the obligation to offer prayers throughout our lives.

Solomon (as): The Pursuit of Wisdom and Knowledge

Solomon, also known as Sulaiman or Al-Uzaiz (38:30), was a major prophet in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. He is mentioned in the Bible, hadith, and the Quran (27:15-44; 34:10; 38:31-34)

In the narratives found in Surah Sad (38:31-34), it is recounted that Allah granted Solomon kingdom, wisdom, and prophethood, presenting him with fascinating possibilities that are presented only to the most righteous.

The lessons gleaned from Solomon’s story are profound. His story underscores the significance of wisdom, intelligence, and knowledge, encouraging us to seek knowledge and to improve ourselves through the acquisition of wisdom.

Zachariah (as): The Power of Du’a and Patience

Al-Ziyadah (Zachariah) is referred to as one of the prophets who were entrusted with knowledge by Allah (swt), and as the father of Prophet-Muhammad’s (pbuh) cousin John. He is mentioned in the Quran, (Surah Al-Imran (3:38); Surah Maryam (19:2-15), and Surah Al-‘Asharah (66:12).

Zachariah, known for his advanced age, prayer, and unwavering faith, provides us with a valuable lesson: the power of Du’a (supplication), coupled with patience and submission, is essential in order to obtain spiritual blessings and religious affection.

In the Surah Maryam (19:2-14), it is recounted that Zachariah submitted a prayer request to Allah (swt) during prayer, asking Him for a righteous child. His prayer was accompanied by his submission to Allah’s will, voicing his readiness to accept Allah’s decree, whatever it may be. Allah granted Zachariah’s prayer, blessing him with John, the son who would become known as Prophet-Muhammad’s cousin and preacher of the religion before Prophet Jesus (as).
