Prophet Moses

A long time ago, there had been many rulers one after the other in the land of Egypt. Each one of them was called as a 'Pharaoh.' The people of Egypt would worship the Pharaohs instead of Allah.

During those days, among the Egyptians, cruelty, evil, and stealing were abundant. Allah sent Prophet Moses (P.B.U.H.) to guide the Pharaoh and the people of Egypt to save the people from the cruelty and torture of the Pharaoh.

Prophet Moses delivered the command of Allah to the Pharaoh. However, the Pharaoh, who was very cruel and selfish, did not accept the command of Allah and disagreed with Moses warning his followers that if they did not stop worshipping one Allah, he would cut their hands and feet and would hang them to death.

However, the followers of Moses did not get scared. They stood firm in their belief and did not abandon the right religion. Allah ordered Prophet Moses to take his followers out of Egypt to a new land.

The Pharaoh and his army, knowing about this migration, set out to capture Prophet Moses and his followers. Moses and his followers reached a sea on their way but with faith in the Almighty Allah, they crossed the sea safely while the Pharaoh and his army were drowned therein.

After that, Moses devoted himself to the work of guiding people to live by the laws that he brought from the kind and merciful Allah. These laws are found in the "Torah, " the book which Moses brought from Allah. The followers of Prophet Moses (P.B.U.H.) are called Jews.
