PROPHET MUSA (…………..) AND PROPHET KHIDR (…………….)
SAYYIDINA musa (…………) exhorted the banu isra’il to obey Allah and to observe taqwa and an adherence to the shari’ah. They listened to him with rapt attention and when he finished, one of them asked him, “Who is the most learned of men? He said promptly, “I”. Allah censured him for this answer and asked him how he had acquired his knowledge. He said that he ought to have attributed all knowledge to Allah he also informed him of one of his slaves, living at the junction of the two seas, as more learned than sayyidina musa (…………..)And he should meet him.
Ssayyidna musa(………….)regretted his haste and set out to meet sayyidina khidr (………………..) he took along a young servant too. Allah had instructed him to carry a fish with him (in his basket) and the place where the fish escaped was the one where he would meet the man.
When he was at the junction of the two seas, he felt drowsy and he fell asleep. It began to rain and some of it fell on the basked. The fish revived when some drops of water fell on it and its way out of the basket into the sea.
When he awoke, sayyidina musa (…………….) and his servant resumed their journey. After a little while, he felt tired and hungry, so he asked his servant for his food . it was then that the youth remembered that the fish had jumped into the sea. He had forgotten to speak of it earlier. Sayyidina musa (…………….) retraced his steps with his servant because that was where he was to meet sayyidina khidr (……………) there he found a lean man with deep set eyes, his face reflecting taqwa. Sayyidina musa (………………..) said, “assalam-u-alaikum, o slave of Allah!” sayyidina khidr (…………………) said, “wa-laikum us lam, o musa prophet of banu isra’il.” Sayyidina musa (…………………) was amazed. He asked, “How do you know me?” he said, “that Supreme Being informed me of you who informed you of me o musa, what is it that you want?” he said, “I have come to learn from your knowledge.
At that moment a bird divan down and touched, the water with its beak. Sayyidina khidr (……………) asked, “Do you know what this tiny bird has to say?” sayyidina musa (……………) requested him to enlighten him. He said that it says, “o khidr, your knowledge and the knowledge of musa compared to Allah’s knowledge is like the water in my beak compared to the water of the sea. “ sayyidina musa (……………..) then requested him to permit him to follow him that he might teach him from what he know of the guidance.
Sayyidina khird (………………) said that sayyidina musa (…………….) would have to show patience which he could not do, because he did not possess that much knowledge and experience. He would regard his doings as a mistake unless he know the reason of itsayyidina musa ((((……………) however, assured him that he would be patient obedient. Syyyidina khidr (…………….) said, “if that is so, then you must not ask me about anything till I disclose to you the reasoning.”
They continued to stand at the sea shore. A boat passed by. When sayyidina kgidr (…………..) gesturedto it, it stopped and he (and sayyidina musa-…………) boarded it. Sayyidina khidr (……………) plucked out one of its planks letting water inside and the boat seemed to drown. Sayyidina musa (………………..) could not restrain himself and asked, “Would you drown these people? What a thing to do?” sayyidina khidr (………….) reminded him of his assurance not to ask about anything he did, sayyidina musa (………………..)Regretted his mistake, saying, “do not seize me for what I forgot ……….” Then, the three of them alighted from the boat. They walked towards a township nearby Sundly, sayyidina khidr (………………) caught hold of a young boy playing with other children and suffocated him to death. Sayyidina musa(………………..) again lost his patience and asked about it in wonder. Sayyidina khidr (…………………..)Looked at him enquiringly and smiled. Sayyidina musa(…………………) again regretted his conduct and assured him that if he committed the mistahe again then he may part with him.
When they came to the township, sayyidina khidr (………………………) asked the people for a meal as their guests, but they refused to play host. Then, sayyidina khidr (………………..)Saw a well about to collapse. He repaired it to stand erect. Sayyidina musa (……………..)Said, “You could have asked for wages.” Sayyidina khidr (……………) said, “This is the parting between you and me. I shall inform you about what you could not endure with patience.” Then, he told him that the boat belonged to some poor people who worked at the sea. A cruel king was given to confiscate property of the subject. But, he would not take a defective thing this was a concealed mercy towards the poor.
As for the by, he was rude and disobedient while his parents were pious and righteous. He could have made their life miserable as a disbeliever and wicked man. So, Allah he killed him at Allah’s command. Allah was trusted to give them a pious and good child, instead.
As for the wall, there was a treasure buried. Underneath it belong to orphan children. Their father was very pious so, he he repaired the wall for them that their treasure might be preserved for for theb. He added, “I did not do it of my own Accor. “It was Allah’s command. This was the interpretation of what sayyidina musa (……………) could not bear patiently.
(These are form verse 65 to 82 of surah al-kahf)
Allah thus taught sayyidina that there is one more knowing than who know. He is Allah, the most knowing, most aware. The omniscient
