Mother of Moses A.S


Part I
‘’ And we inspired the mother of Moses A.S saying : ‘Keep suckling him (without fear); but when you fear for him ,cast him into the river, and fear not, nor grieve; verily we shall bring back to you and we are about to make him a messenger.’’

There is nothing mentioned about the father of Moses A.S in the Holy Quran but has been mentioned only about his mother who suckled and brought him up. It was the time when Pharaoh had badly afflicted Bani Israel, made them slaves and oppressed them.

It is narrated that once an enigmatic dream bewildered him. He sent for many magicians, astrologers (fortune-tellers) and dream interpreters to know about the connotation of his dream. They told him that a child would be born of Bani Israel, who would snatch his kingdom, exile his nation from that Island and finish his religion. And the time of his birth has come yet.

Having heard this news he maddened with wrath and ordered to assassinate every newborn boy of Bani Israel .For this throughout the country. In this way Pharaoh got assassinated seventy thousand newborn boys of Bani Israel. Moses A.S was also born during those days. His mother was trembling with fear and widwife felt sorry for her and promised that she would not tell anyone about the birth of that child. It is also mentioned in some narrations that midwife was deeply impressed by the innocent beauty and elegance of Moses AS and was enchanted to him that is why she did not give him to the men of Pharaoh to kill him. But Pharaoh’s detectors saw her coming out from the house of Moses A.S. They had besieged the house and were about to capture the child, when Moses A.S sister Maryam saw them and told her mother in puzzlement that Pharaoh’s soldiers were at door.

During this moment of anxiety, Allah revealed on Moses A.S mother to wrap him in a piece of cloth and cast him into and burning oven. She did the same. After that soldiers came into the house. They found nothing but mother and sister of Moses A.S who were busy in their work. They inquired wrathfully of the visit of midwife. They replied solemnly that she was their friend and had come to see them. Hearing this reply, soldiers went away.

Now Moses A.S Mother was under taken by the anguish about her son. In the meanwhile she heard the voice of her son from the oven and went running to bring him out of burning oven. By the grace of Allah, Moses AS was not even touched by fire. Now the fact was quite obvious to her that it wasn’t out of danger to keep the child with her any more. She was still under this deep contemplation when Allah revealed on her.

‘’That put the baby Moses AS into a box. Then cast the box into the river will cast it upon the shore then it will be picked up by one who is an enemy to me and him’’………………….
