Since 2012-12-06

The more we know about our Creator, the more we know about His Greatness about His Attributes, about His Mercy, about His Love, about His Compassion,...

The more we know about our Creator, the more we know about His Greatness about His Attributes, about His Mercy, about His Love, about His Compassion, about His wisdom, about His Knowledge, and so and so forth the more we love Him, that’s human nature, we cannot resist it unless we’ve got really something wrong deep in our heart.

 
* Today I want to share with you a very beautiful example about the impact of this knowledge and how it has the ability and the potential to change human beings a hundred and twenty degrees, it can change everything in your life, and this is one of the most important objectives of this series, is that we want to know more about Allah so that we get to change our lives to lead the life Allah wants us to lead.
 
* The story I want to share with you is the story of the magicians of Pharaoh to show you how knowledge about Allah can make you a totally different person in a very positive sense.
 
The magicians of Pharaoh were amongst the worst people on earth, because those people who would resort to tricks, lies, and they would do anything to please Pharaoh who was the object of worship to them, so to them the end would justify the means, and because the end even was so filthy that is to please Pharaoh they would do even dirty things.
 
When Pharaoh brought them to challenge (Moses peace be upon him) Allah said about them: {By the might of Fir’aun (Pharaoh), it is we who will certainly win!} [Ash-Shu’ara’ 26:44]
 
{بِعِزَّةِ فِرْعَوْنَ إِنَّا لَنَحْنُ الْغَالِبُونَ} الشعراء: 44
 
 
Transliteration: biAAizzati firAAawna innalanahnu alghaliboona
 
When they saw the sign and the miracle that Allah gave Moses Alyhi Assalam the hearts captured the greatness of Allah, these magician were experts in their field, they knew what magic was all about, but that miracle Moses came with was not magic it was not something within the human ability, it is impossible for human to do it, they realized this is The Greatness, The Knowledge and The Might of Allah, at that very moment the fitrah, and the natural disposition to love and to recognize The Greatness of Allah woke up, as it woke up the hearts captured a little bit of The Greatness, The Power, The Might, and some of The Names and The Attributes of Allah. What happened?! This little portion of faith and knowledge about Allah made them woke up straight away and in seconds they changed and became totally different people; just a few seconds ago they worshiped Pharaoh now what did they do? They prostrated themselves before Allah! They believed in Allah.
 
Pharaoh threatened them he said: “I shall kill you, I shall crucify you, and I shall cut off your hands and your feet from opposite side.” What was their response after he was trying to cast terror in their hearts? They said: “It doesn’t make a difference, we are returning to Allah, our Lord, you do whatever you want to do, whatever decision you make; it only pertains to this life which is nothing, we’ve believed in Allah who will Insha’Allah make us enter Paradise, that’s the real life, so do whatever you want to do!”
 
You see how these used to worship Pharaoh, they were cowered but as Islam entered their hearts they became the most courageous as they felt the sweetness of Iman by feeling some of The Names and The Attributes of Allah.
