Competition against wizards
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
79. And Pharaoh said: Bring every skillful wizard unto me.
80. So when the wizards came, Moses said unto them: Cast your cast!
79. Wa qaala Fir-‘aw-nu’-tuu-nii bi-kulli saa-hirin ‘aliim.
80. Fa-lammaa jaaa-‘assa-ha-ratu qaala lahum-Muusaaa ‘al-quu maaa ‘antum-mulquun.
It is commanded that Pharaoh said to the both Prophets (Moses and Aaron - peace be upon them) that they were greedy of realm and wealth, and menaced them that he would not let them succeed. He said: I am king of this country and behold! I scheme to trouble you.
Pharaoh had already said that the both Prophets (peace be upon them) were magicians, so he said to his courtiers that there were many wizards in their country. They should bring chosen from them master wizards before Pharaoh. He said: I want to see these both wizards, who have been producing themselves in a new form, what do they do?
Complete detail of competition against the wizards has passed in Suratul-‘A’-raaf (Chapter -7). Here, the intention has been drawn unto such point only that greedy people of the world consider that others are also like them and oppose them, whereas they should think: May be that other people do not have any personal interest, and whatever they say, may be that is for our advantage. But the people entangled in the world can not be of such exalted position. They have the mind of only own office and greatness, and get ready to ruin every movement of other; considering it his selfishness.
Therefore, it has been described here that; the wizards were searched and called according to the order of Pharaoh, who stood before Moses (peace be upon him) for competition. Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) said to them: Bring forth whatever you wish to cast.
