Drowning of Pharaoh
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Friends of God Almighty do not concern themselves with any other than Allah, The Most high. They have neither friendship nor enmity with any of the creatures, but their hearts are so much clean, transparent and pure that as soon as the Knowledge of Allah Almighty puts its reflection on them, they begin to shine, by which they know that “what should they do”. Allah Honored and Glorified, has established a rule that the disobedient will be punished. For the punishment, the Day of Resurrection is fixed. But at times, vicious people are destroyed for purifying the world, so that they may neither tease the righteous people and nor mislead the public. For it, some catastrophic accidents happen; because in the world; different forces come into collision with one another. Those accidents ravage them.
Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) had known through His internal Light that Pharaoh has come under an unlucky star and he would never believe. Moreover, he and his supporters would be ruined very soon. God’s obedient people will get deliverance from his oppression and set free in the world, so that they may show their earnestness in obedience of Allah Almighty by own will. For this purpose; they prayed also; so that the obedient of Allah Almighty should be free and try for their well being.
In this curse, personal enmity or obstinacy have no access. Desire of human welfare, which Allah Almighty has put in the hearts of His accepted servants, excites them to pray unhesitatingly at suitable occasions. Accidents happen in the world and these are result of knocking of many forces together. Their causes use to assemble and when they are complete then Allah Almighty commands: accident should appear. What are these causes? Some of them have been known by the mankind, but some are those, about which human being is doubtful that “are those really causes”? He does not understand that his misdeeds may also be cause of appearance of some catastrophic accidents in the world. Allah Almighty has informed to His Messengers (peace be upon them) through Revelations that immoralities of the human beings also interfere in producing catastrophic accidents.
Usually those people are entangled in these accidents who already deserve punishment due to their wrongdoing. The people whose deeds are good, Allah Almighty saves them often from the calamities in retribution of their good deeds. When the time for Pharaoh’s ruin including his companions reached, then its form was that the Children of Israel were caused to cross the river by drying it, whereas when Pharaoh saw that the river was dry and he entered into it, then suddenly the water level of the river arose more than earlier and Pharaoh including his companions were drowned.
