Divine Wisdom on Sustenance


Prophet Musa (a.s.) came across a poor person who, due to his abject poverty, lay bare-bodied on the desert sand. When he (a.s.) came nearer, the person requested: “O’ Musa! Pray to Allah that he grants me a little sustenance for I am on the verge of dying.”

 

Musa (a.s.) prayed for him and then proceeded from there to Mount Sinai to converse with Allah. A few days later Musa (a.s.), on his return, happened to pass by that very place when he witnessed that the same poor man had been arrested and a large crowd had gathered around him.

 

He (a.s.) inquired: “What has happened?” The people present there said: “Until recently he was penniless but off late he had managed to acquire some money; having consumed wine, he got involved in a brawl and killed a person. He has now been arrested so that he can be subjected to ‘qisas’ (Retaliation) and put to death!”

Allah says in the Noble Qur`an:

 

“And if Allah should amplify the provision for His servants they would certainly revolt in the earth.” (Suratul Shura (42), Verse 27)

 

Musa (a.s.) acknowledged the divine Wisdom and, expressing repentance over his request, sought Allah’s forgiveness.
