Dhikr #05
Quranic Dhikr 03 (Chapter 2, Verse 67)

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuh

Hello & welcome back my fellow brothers and sisters. Today’s Dhikr is a verse from the Holy Quran, it says:

Arabic Text:

“...أَعُوذُ بِٱللَّهِ أَنْ أَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْجَٰهِلِينَ.”

Transliteration:

”...aAAoothu biAllahi an akoona mina aljahileena..”

Translation:

"...I seek refuge in Allah from being among the ignorant or the foolish."

Tafseer:

This du’a was done by Prophet Musa (ASW) when he told his people (the Children of Israel) that Allah commanded them to slaughter a cow and they said to him “do you make fun of us?”

So why were they asked to slaughter a cow?

The Story of the murdered Israeli man and the cow

quranic, piclab, and dua image

What’s the moral of the story and du’a?

*That when Allah commands you to do something you do it!!! Period!!!

*The Children of Israeli questioned and demand the description of the cow and were given the description of the most rarest cow, if not because they said “InShaaAllah” they would never have found it. Apart from that the hen they did find the cow they had to k on at a heft sum of money to get it. If they had just slaughtered a cow when they were asked to they wouldn’t have gone through all that trouble but this is a lesson for the future generations(us) to learn from.

*That nobody is above making a mistake, as you can see here Prophet Musa is the one making this du’a because he is human and only Allah (SAW) can guide him and us too. As we all know the imaan fluctuates, so also make this du’a to not be among the ignorant or foolish.
