9 Hath there come unto thee the story of Moses?
10 When he saw a fire and said unto his folk: Lo! Wait! I see a fire afar off. Peradventure I may bring you a brand therefrom or may find guidance at the fire.
11 And when he reached it, he was called by name: O Moses!
12 Lo! I, even I, am thy Lord, So take off thy shoes, for lo! thou art in the holy valley of Tuwa.
13 And I have chosen thee, so hearken unto that which is inspired.
14 Lo! I, even I, am Allah, There is no Allah save Me. So serve Me and establish worship for My remembrance.
15 Lo! the Hour is surely coming. But I will to keep it hidden, that every soul may be rewarded for that which it striveth (to achieve).
16 Therefor, let not him turn thee aside from (the thought of) it who believeth not therein but followeth his own desire, lest thou perish.
17 And what is that in thy right hand, O Moses?
18 He said: This is my staff whereon I lean, and wherewith I bear down branches for my sheep, and wherein I find other uses.
19 He said: Cast it down, O Moses!
20 So he cast it down, and lo! it was a serpent, gliding.
21 He said: Grasp it and fear not. We shall return it to its former state.
22 And thrust thy hand within thine armpit, it will come forth white without hurt. (That will be) another token.
23 That We may show thee (some) of Our greater portents,
24 Go thou unto Pharaoh! Lo! he hath transgressed (the bounds).
25 (Moses) said: My Lord! relieve my mind
26 And ease my task for me;
27 And loose a knot from my tongue,
28 That they may understand my saying.
29 Appoint for me a henchman from my folk,
30 Aaron, my brother.
31 Confirm my strength with him
32 And let him share my task,
33 That we may glorify Thee much
34 And much remember Thee.
35 Lo! Thou art ever Seeing us.
36 He said: Thou art granted thy request, O Moses.
37 And indeed, another time, already We have shown thee favour,
38 When we inspired in thy mother that which is inspired,
39 Saying: Throw him into the ark, and throw it into the river, then the river shall throw it on to the bank, and there an enemy to Me and an enemy to him shall take him. And I endued thee with love from Me that thou mightest be trained according to My will,
40 When thy sister went and said: Shall I show you one who will nurse him? and we restored thee to thy mother that her eyes might be refreshed and might not sorrow. And thou didst kill a man and We delivered thee from great distress, and tried thee with a heavy trial. And thou didst tarry years among the folk of Midian. Then camest thou (hither) by (My) providence, O Moses

you do realize nobody reads your random quotes, right?

if you've got something to say, say it. but quoting random quotes doesn't really do a lot.

Just for the record: somebody does read! And it might as well be a gentle, loving and merciful divine being.

So say that. By posting random quotes you're not doing anything.

What does that quote mean? What are you trying to say by it? Why should we believe it over the Bible that it was plagiarized from? what reason do I have to believe your book over that of the mormons?

it is redundant to say something that can be driven.

if the verses are not clear i will say them in my poor English

the Quran is telling us about the prophet Moses before he became a prophet

he was traveling with his wife and at night he saw a fire ahead
he told his wife to stay and he want to go where the fire is to get some fire and get some guidance

when he reached to fire he heard a voice calling him o Moses

and telling him that he is his lord and to take off his shoes because he is in the sacred valley Tuwa

and he has chosen him and he told him that he is Allah the only god
and to worship him

and he asked him about what in his right hand
he told him its a stick

then Allah told him to throw it down then it became a snake and told him not to fear it will become a stick again ......etc


so why should i say the story while it is said in the verses

the bottom line is the post is about the story of Moses in Islam

moonsun, again, i want you to know that t/here are people understanding the allegory as well as its intended teaching, and it being part of every religion.
This understanding will return to many people in need of healing.
But the accusations and punishments need to STOP along with it.

Peace and Love in the name of the ONE!

as before, the "greater" must serve the "lesser", not turning mercy into cruelties. and such was the message of Jesus, throughout.
