Moses 11:96 – 11:99

Moses

[11:96] We sent Moses with our signs and a profound authority.
[11:97] To Pha raoh and his elders. But they followed the command of Pharaoh, and Pharaoh’s command was not wise.
[11:98] He will lead his people on the Day of Resurrection, all the way to Hell; what a miserable abode to live in!
[11:99] They have incurred condemnation in this life, as well as on the Day of Resurrection; what a miserable path to follow!

In 11:96 why was Moses signs consist of plagues rather than a miracle as a blessing?

It is specific to the community, it is to bring a miracle that people can connect to while still reflecting.

[7:133] Consequently, we sent upon them the flood, the locusts, the lice, the frogs, and the blood-profound signs. But they maintained their arrogance. They were evil people.

Because Pharaoh didn’t take heed when other signs were given in the past, so they keep escalating in intensity.

Everyone is given freedom, but they readily reject it. This Quran is 10xs more profound than those past miracles. Those past miracles limited in time and place, this Quran is eternal. This brings a lot of responsibility.

Exodus 7:14

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is unyielding; he refuses to let the people go. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning as he goes out to the river.Confront him on the bank of the Nile, and take in your hand the staff that was changed into a snake. 16 Then say to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to say to you: Let my people go, so that they may worship me in the wilderness. But until now you have not listened. 17 This is what the Lord says: By this you will know that I am the Lord: With the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water of the Nile, and it will be changed into blood. 18 The fish in the Nile will die, and the river will stink; the Egyptians will not be able to drink its water.’”

[6:25] Some of them listen to you, but we place veils on their hearts to prevent them from understanding, and deafness in their ears. Thus, no matter what kind of proof they see, they cannot believe. Thus, when they come to argue with you, the disbelievers say, “These are tales from the past.”

What was the command of Pharaoh in 11:97?
They saw him as a deity, so his command was carried out with authority. His command was that they better not listen to Moses because he is going to take away your position – follow me instead.

You shall not follow him, follow me. His command was to worship him.

Which Pharaoh was this? All or one specific?
Ramsees the 2nd – they were the kings but archeologists pinned it to Ramsees the 2nd because they found sea water in his lungs when they did autopsy. We know that he drowned when pursuing Moses.

[10:92]  “Today, we will preserve your body, to set you up as a lesson for future generations.”* Unfortunately, many people are totally oblivious to our signs.

Is believing in multiple gods worse than believing in a wrong god?
Equal if you don’t believe in God’s omnipotence or setting up another beside God they are the same.

Shu’aib: One and the Same Message (11:84 – 11:95)

Shu’aib: One and the Same Message

[11:84] To Midyan we sent their brother Shu’aib. He said, “O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. Do not cheat when you measure or weigh. I see that you are prosperous, and I fear for you the retribution of an overwhelming day.
[11:85] “O my people, you shall give full measure and full weight, equitably. Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly.
[11:86] “Whatever GOD provides for you, no matter how small, is far better for you, if you are really believers. I am not a guardian over you.”
[11:87] They said, “O Shu’aib, does your religion dictate upon you that we must abandon our parents’ religion, or running our businesses in any manner we choose? Surely, you are known for being clement, wise.”
[11:88] He said, “O my people, what if I have solid proof from my Lord; what if He has provided me with a great blessing? It is not my wish to commit what I enjoin you from. I only wish to correct as many wrongs as I can. My guidance depends totally on GOD; I have put my trust in Him. To Him I have totally submitted.
[11:89] “And, O my people, do not be provoked by your opposition to me into incurring the same disasters as the people of Noah, or the people of Hûd, or the people of Sãleh; and the people of Lot are not too far from you.
[11:90] “You shall implore your Lord for forgiveness, then repent to Him. My Lord is Most Merciful, Kind.”
[11:91] They said, “O Shu’aib, we do not comprehend many of the things you are telling us, and we see that you are powerless among us. If it were not for your tribe, we would have stoned you. You have no value for us.”
[11:92] He said, “O my people, does my tribe command a greater respect than GOD? Is this why you have been heedless of Him? My Lord is fully aware of everything you do.
[11:93] “O my people, go on doing what you wish, and so will I. You will certainly find out which of us will incur shameful retribution; you will find out who the liar is. Just wait in anticipation, and I will wait in anticipation along with you.”
[11:94] When our judgment came, we saved Shu’aib and those who believed with him, by mercy from us. As for the evil ones, they were struck by a disaster that left them dead in their homes.
[11:95] It was as though they never existed. Thus, Midyan perished, just like Thamûd had perished before that.

Shu’aib

[26:176] The People of the Woods disbelieved the messengers. [26:177] Shu’aib said to them, “Would you not be righteous? [26:178] “I am an honest messenger to you. [26:179] “You shall reverence GOD, and obey me. [26:180] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes only from the Lord of the universe. [26:181] “You shall give full measure when you trade; do not cheat. [26:182] “You shall weigh with an equitable scale. [26:183] “Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly. [26:184] “Reverence the One who created you and the previous generations.” [26:185] They said, “You are bewitched. [26:186] “You are no more than a human being like us. In fact, we think you are a liar. [26:187] “Let masses from the sky fall on us, if you are truthful.” [26:188] He said, “My Lord is the One who knows everything you do.” [26:189] They disbelieved him and, consequently, they incurred the retribution of the Day of the Canopy. It was the retribution of an awesome day. [26:190] This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers. [26:191] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful. 

[83:1] Woe to the cheaters. [83:2] Who demand full measure when receiving from the people. [83:3] But when giving them the measures or weights, they cheat. [83:4] Do they not know that they will be resurrected?

[11:68] It was as if they never lived there. Indeed, Thamûd have rejected their Lord. Absolutely, Thamûd have incurred their annihilation. 

[25:57] Say, “I do not ask you for any money. All I seek is to help you find the right path to your Lord, if this is what you choose.”

Psalm 9:1-6
1. I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. 2. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High. 3. My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. 4. For you have upheld my right and my cause, sitting enthroned as the righteous judge. 5. You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever. 6. Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished.

Homosexuality Condemned (11:77 – 11:81)

Homosexuality Condemned

[11:77] When our messengers went to Lot, they were mistreated, and he was embarrassed by their presence. He said, “This is a difficult day.”
[11:78] His people came rushing; they had grown accustomed to their sinful acts. He said, “O my people, it would be purer for you, if you take my daughters instead. You shall reverence GOD; do not embarrass me with my guests. Have you not one reasonable man among you?”
[11:79] They said, “You know well that we have no need for your daughters; you know exactly what we want.”
[11:80] He said, “I wish I were strong enough, or had a powerful ally!”
[11:81] (The angels) said, “O Lot, we are your Lord’s messengers, and these people cannot touch you. You shall leave with your family during the night, and let not anyone of you look back, except your wife; she is condemned along with those who are condemned. Their appointed time is the morning. Is not the morning soon enough?”

In 11:78 it shows that the people have become accustomed to their sinful acts.
Conditioning by the media to make people used to sinful behavior.

Why would Lot offer his daughters in 11:79?
Similar to Abraham’s argument

Abraham Debates With Idol Worshipers

[6:74] Recall that Abraham said to his father Ãzer, “How could you worship statues as gods? I see that you and your people have gone far astray.” [6:75] We showed Abraham the marvels of the heavens and the earth, and blessed him with certainty: [6:76] When the night fell, he saw a shining planet. “Maybe this is my Lord,” he said. When it disappeared, he said, “I do not like (gods) that disappear.” 

[15:61] The messengers went to Lot’s town. [15:62] He said, “You are unknown people.” [15:63] They said, “We bring to you what they have been doubting. [15:64] “We bring to you the truth; we are truthful. [15:65] “You shall take your family during the night. Stay behind them, and make sure that none of you looks back. Go straight as commanded.” [15:66] We delivered to him this command: those people are to be annihilated in the morning. [15:67] The people of the city came joyfully. [15:68] He said, “These are my guests; do not embarrass me. [15:69] “Fear GOD, and do not shame me.” [15:70] They said, “Did we not enjoin you from contacting anyone?” [15:71] He said, “Here are my daughters, if you must.” [15:72] But, alas, they were totally blinded by their lust. [15:73] Consequently, the disaster struck them in the morning. [15:74] We turned it upside down, and showered them with devastating rocks. [15:75] This is a lesson for those who possess intelligence.

Men and Women Endowed With Unique Qualities

[4:32] You shall not covet the qualities bestowed upon each other by GOD; the men enjoy certain qualities, and the women enjoy certain qualities. You may implore GOD to shower you with His grace. GOD is fully aware of all things.

Lot: Homosexuality Condemned

[7:80] Lot said to his people, “You commit such an abomination; no one in the world has done it before! [7:81] “You practice sex with the men, instead of the women. Indeed, you are a transgressing people.” [7:82] His people responded by saying, “Evict them from your town. They are people who wish to be pure.” [7:83] Consequently, we saved him and his family, but not his wife; she was with the doomed. [7:84] We showered them with a certain shower; note the consequences for the guilty.

Lot

[29:28] Lot said to his people, “You commit such an abomination, no one in the world has ever done it before you. [29:29] “You practice sex with the men, you commit highway robbery, and you allow all kinds of vice in your society.” The only response from his people was to say, “Bring to us GOD’s retribution, if you are truthful.” [29:30] He said, “My Lord, grant me victory over these wicked people.”

Angels Visit Abraham and Lot

[29:31] When our messengers went to Abraham with good news (about Isaac’s birth), they also said, “We are on our way to annihilate the people of that town (Sodom). For its people have been wicked.” [29:32] He said, “But Lot is living there.” They said, “We are fully aware of everyone who lives in it. We will of course save him and his family, except his wife; she is doomed.” [29:33] When our messengers arrived at Lot’s place, they were mistreated, and he was embarrassed by their presence. But they said, “Have no fear, and do not worry. We will save you and your family, except your wife; she is doomed. [29:34] “We will pour upon the people of this town a disaster from the sky, as a consequence of their wickedness.” [29:35] We left standing some of their ruins, to serve as a profound lesson for people who understand.
