Assalaamualykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh
As we are approaching the noble month of ramadan gradually, may Allaah make us to witness more of it on the surface of the earth (Aameen), we will like to share a short lesson with ourselves from the glorious Qur’aan.
In the first 3 ayat in surah an-Naas, Almighty Allaah . says: Say:
“I seek refuge with (Allah) the Lord (Rabb) of mankind,
The King (Malik) of mankind The Ilaah (God) of mankind”
Oh Muslims!, know that there are 3 things that Firaun claimed to be:
1. And he said: “I am your lord (Rabb), most high”. [Qur’aan 79:24] 2. And Fir’aun proclaimed among his people: “O my people! Is not mine the dominion (Mulk) of Egypt…” [Qur’aan 43:51] 3. Fir’aun said: “O chiefs! I know not that you have an ilah (God) other than me…” [Qur’aan 28:38]
We should not overlook the above similarities and only coming to the conclusion that Firaun was just a loser. There is more. This is what the was-was of Shaitan can lead us to. Shaitan’s biggest problem was his arrogance, and he can instill this same problem in us too, and one of the worst manifestations of that arrogance is Firaun.
We’re living in a time where we ourselves can turn into a mini-Firaun, without even realizing it. We’re living in an era where people declare themselves gods over themselves, that they are their own master/rabb, king/malik of their domain, and turn their own desires into their ilaah.
Have you seen him who takes his own lust (vain desires) as his ilah? [Al-Jathiyah 45:23]
Be careful of the traps of Shaitan: Arrogance.
May Allaah assist us and reward the readers and the writer abundantly. (Aameen)
