Mozes(a.s) Arrival at the valley of Tuwa and the first Revelation

ARRIVAL AT THE VALLEY OF TUWA

and

THE FIRST REVELATION

Musa honoured the agreement he made with the old man and stayed

in Midian for many years. At the end of the appointed time, that is, when

the agreement had come to termination, Musa and his family left Midian. On

their journey, Musa saw a fire in the distance, on the side of the Mount Sinai,

which he was passing by with his family. Musa thought he could bring a

brand from the fire to warm up or to gather some information from it:

When Musa had fulfilled the appointed term and had set off with his

family, he noticed a fire from one side of the Mount. He said to his

family, "Stay here, I can see a fire. Hopefully I will bring you back

some news from it or a burning branch from the fire so that you will

be able to warm yourselves." (Qur'an, 28: 29)

When Musa said to his household, "I can make out a fire. I will bring

you news from it or at least a burning brand so that hopefully you will

be able to warm yourselves." (Qur'an, 27: 7)

When he saw a fire and said to his family, "Wait here. I can make out

a fire. Maybe I will bring you a brand from it, or will find guidance

there." (Qur'an, 20: 10)

This event is indicative of yet another facet of Musa exemplary

character. Musa is a very attentive person, who carefully assesses

everything happening around him. He knows God ordains all events

according to a specific destiny. Aware that God predetermines everything

through divine reason, Musa always welcomes various events or

circumstances with the expectation of drawing some benefit from them.

His noticing a fire on a mountain, and his assessing the situation, is a

condition of mind peculiar to a vigilant believer. His decision to go alone,

leaving his family behind to ensure their security, is also exemplary of the

wisdom granted to him by God.
