Sura 28: History (Al-Qasas)
[28:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful [28:1] T. S. M.* [28:2] These (letters) constitute proofs of this profound book. [28:3] We recite to you herein some history of Moses and Pharaoh, truthfully, for the benefit of people who believe. [28:4] Pharaoh turned into a tyrant on earth, and discriminated against some people. He persecuted a helpless group of them, slaughtering their sons, while sparing their daughters. He was indeed wicked.
*28:1 See Appendix 1 for details of the Quran’s miraculous mathematical code, and the meaning or significance of these Quranic Initials.
Interesting in 28:4 that it says that Pharaoh “turned” into a tyrant. Under the right conditions could anyone turn into a tyrant?
Materials of This World: All That The Disbelievers Get
[43:33] If it were not that all the people might become one (disbelieving) congregation, we would have granted everyone who disbelieves in the Most Gracious mansions with silver roofs, and stairs upon which they could climb. [43:34] Their mansions would have impressive gates, and luxurious furnishings. [43:35] Also many ornaments. All these are the temporary materials of this lowly life. The Hereafter—at your Lord—is far better for the righteous.
[17:11] The human being often prays for something that may hurt him, thinking that he is praying for something good. The human being is impatient.
[3:178] Let not the disbelievers think that we lead them on for their own good. We only lead them on to confirm their sinfulness. They have incurred a humiliating retribution.
[6:113] This is to let the minds of those who do not believe in the Hereafter listen to such fabrications, and accept them, and thus expose their real convictions.*
[8:23] Had GOD known of any good in them, He would have made them hearers. Even if He made them hearers, they still would turn away in aversion.
[42:27] If GOD increased the provision for His servants, they would transgress on earth. This is why He sends it precisely measured to whomever He wills. He is fully Cognizant and Seer of His servants.
