Allah's Confidential Talk To Prophet Moses (A.S.)
The following are Allah's confidential talks to Moses (A.S.) the prophet, son of Imran.
1 - O Moses, do not have a long expectation in this world lest your heart will be hard. The hard-hearted are far away from Me. Deaden your heart with fear (of Allah). Your dress should be worn - out but your heart should be fresh. You should be unknown by the people of this earth but well-known for the inhabitants of the heavens. Cry to Me, for the plenty of your sins, like the cry of the runaway from his enemy. Seek My help to do so, for I am surely the best One Whose help is sought.
2 - O Moses, I am above the servants and they are below Me. Everyone is submissive to Me. Make yourself the supervisor on yourself. Do not depend upon even your sons in the affairs of your religion except that your son, like you, loves the virtuous ones.
3 - O Moses, be clean, wash yourself, and come near to My virtuous servants.
4 - O Moses, be their Imam in their prayers and their judge in their quarrels and maintain fair judgment among them according to that which I have revealed to you. I have certainly revealed a clear - cut judge, a luminous proof, and an illumination that explains the manners of the past ones and foretells of what will happen to the next generations.
5 - O Moses, I command you, the commandment of the merciful humanistic One, With reference to the son of the virgin; Jesus son of Mary, the rider of the she - ass and the owner of the burnoose, the oil, the olive, and the mihrab. After him will come the rider of the red camel, the infallible, the pure, and the purified. In your Book, he is mentioned as the faithful reining over the (Heavenly) Books. He is genuflecting, prostrating, desiring for supporters are other peoples. In his time, there will be hardship, quakes, and massacre. His name is Ahmad and Muhammad Al-Amin (the honest). He is the descendant of the past (Prophets). He believes in all the Books and attests to all of the messengers (of Allah). His nation will be compassionated and blessed. They will have certain hours in which they call for the prayers. Believe in him, for he is your brother.
6 - O Moses, he cannot read and write. He is true servant and every place that he puts his hand on is blessed. We will bless him. Thus has it been in My (eternal) knowledge and thus have I created him. I commence the Hour (of the Resurrection) to come with him, and I terminate the Keys of this world with his nation. Give your orders to the unjust Israelites not to hide his name and to disappoint him, for they shall do it. To love him for My sake is an advantage. I am with him, with his party, and he is with My party. My party will always be the triumphant.
7 - O Moses, you are My servant and I am your Lord. Do not humiliate the modest poor ones and do not envy the rich ones. Be earnest when you refer to Me, and be hopeful when you recite My reference. Let Me hear the delight of the Torah when you use a tuneful submissive voice as you recite it. Be tranquil when you refer to Me. Worship Me and do not associate anyone (or anything) with Me. I am certainly the Lord. I have created you from an insignificant drop of fluid, from clay that I extracted from a gametic humble land, and it became human being. I am its Creator. Blessed be My face and sacred be My made. There is nothing like Me. I am the Everlasting the Eternal Who never comes to an end.
8 - O Moses, when you supplicate to Me, be fearful, apprehensive, and anxious. When you supplicate to me secretly, call on Me with a frightened heart that is full of anxiety. Enliven the days of your age with My Torah, convey My benevolent attributes to the ignorant, remind them with My favors and graces, and tell them not to go too far in their current seduction, for My punishment is painful and extremely severe.
9 - O Moses, if your bond with Me is cut, you will not have any bond tied to anyone else. Worship Me and stand before Me like the humble servant. Reproach yourself. It is worthy of reproach. Do not show arrogance against the Israelites because of (your having) My Book. These words are sufficient admonisher that illuminates your heart. It is furthermore the wording of the Lord of the worlds. Blessed and Exalted be Him
10 - O Moses, whenever you call on Me, you will find Me. I will forgive what you have done. The heavens are praising me out of their fear, the angels are fretful of fearing Me, the earth is praising Me out of desire, and all the creatures are praising Me submissively. Adhere to the prayer, for I have a special consideration for it and it has a firm pledge with Me. Add to it the zakat of the offer to Me. You should defray it from your best property and food, for I accept nothing but the best when it is intended purely to Me. Insert with it the regard of the relatives. I am the Beneficent the Merciful.
I created the relation of kinship from My mercy so that the servants will compassionate each other according to their relations of kinship. In the world to come, it will have a ruling authority (as it will intercede for those who have regarded it). I will surely disregard him whoever disregards it and regard him whoever regards it. Thus will I do to him who neglects My commandments.
11 - O Moses, respect the beggars by means of a gentle rejection or a little donating. Those who come to ask from you are neither human beings nor jinn. They are the angels of the Beneficent whose purpose is to examine what you are doing with that on which I have made you custodian and examine how you will console (others) by means of that which I have given to you. Submit to Me by way of invocation and cry to Me by wailing during reciting the (Torah) Book. You should understand that My calling to you is as same as the call of the master to his slave, so that you will attain the best of positions. This is a part of My favor to you as well as your past fathers.
12 - O Moses, do not forget Me under any condition and do not be happy for the abundance of your property. To forget Me causes hard-heartedness. The abundance of property brings about the plenty of sins. The earth is submissive, the heavens are submissive, and the oceans are submissive (to Me). He who disobeys Me will surely be unhappy. I am the Beneficent the Merciful. I am the Beneficent in all times. I convey hardship after comfort and comfort after hardship. I bring kings after kings consecutively. All this and My kingdom is everlasting and never-ending. Nothing in the earth or in the heavens can hide from me. How can things hide from Me when I am their only Originator? How do you not care totally for Me when you will inevitably be returned to Me?
13 - O Moses, make Me your refuge, deposit with Me your treasure of good deeds, fear Me, and do not fear anything else. To Me will be the fate.
14 - O Moses, resume your repentance, delay your sin, slow down while you are standing before Me in prayers, and never hope for anyone other than Me. Betake Me as the shelter against hardships and the fortress against the challenging matters.
15 - O Moses, compete with the people of goodness in doing good, because goodness is good (like its name). Leave evil to the seduced ones.
16 - O Moses, make your tongue follow your heart and you will be safe. Refer to me very much in days and nights and you will be successful. Do not pursue the wrongdoing lest you will regret. The Fire (of Hell) is the location of the wrongdoings.
17 - O Moses, use nice wording with them who abstain from committing sins. Sit with them at all times, betake them as brothers in absence, and treat them seriously so that they will treat you seriously.
18 - O Moses, the few that is intended purely for Me is very much. The very much that is intended for anyone (or anything) other than Me is few. The best of your days should be the coming. Hence, you should regard for the coming day and prepare your answers, for you will surely be stopped for interrogation. The long age in this (worldly) time is certainly short and the short age is long, since everything will come to an end. Act as if you can see the reward of your actions so that this will fill in you with desire for the life to come. The remaining age in this world is as same as that which passed away. Each doer should act sagaciously and experimentally. O son of Imran, think for yourself deeply so that you may win tomorrow when you will be interrogated. Therein, the wrongdoers will suffer defeat.
19 - O Moses, satisfy yourself with the world and desert it, for it is not yours and you are not its. What is your concern with the abode of the unjust ones? For the good-doers only, it is the best abode.
20 - O Moses, this world and its people are seditious matters for each other. Everybody sees what he is in as excellent. As for the believers, they see the world to come as excellent. They look at the world as a source of misfortune. The bliss of the world to come precluded them from enjoying the pleasures of their lives. It caused them to stay up to the last hours of night like the rider who longs for the finish line. They keep on depression and spend their nights with sadness. Bless are those. What great bliss they will see if only the screen is removed for them!
21- O Moses, whenever you notice a rich man coming forward, you should say that he is only a sin the punishment of which is immediate. Whenever you notice a poor man coming toward you, you should say: Welcome to the slogan of the virtuous people. Do not be arrogant and unjust and do not be the friend of the unjust ones.
22 - O Moses, an age the last of which is censured is not (a proper) age, no matter how long it takes. It is harmless for you to be saved from the consequence of that which has not reached you.
23 - O Moses, The (Divine) Book has declared your fate clearly openly. How can eyes sleep after that? How can any people enjoy their lives unless they are negligent and pursuing their passions consecutively? For a less matter, the truthful are anxious.
24 - O Moses, order My servants to supplicate to Me, regardless of their conditions, after they believe in Me. I am surely the most merciful among the merciful ones. I answer the prayers of the distressed ones, remove the hardship, change the condition, bring about comfort, thank the few (deed), reward abundantly, and enrich the poor. I am the Everlasting, the All-mighty, and the All - powerful. You should receive any wrongdoer who seeks your refuge and comes under your shade with: Welcome, you have resided in the widest yard; the yard of the Lord of the worlds. In addition, you should seek (My) forgiveness to them. Behave as if you are one of them. Do not puff up against them for the favors that I have bestowed upon you. Tell them that they should ask Me for My favor and mercy, for no one possesses them except Me. I am the Master of the great favor, haven of the wrongdoers, sitter of the distressed ones, and forgiver of the guilty. You are occupying the place that I like; therefore, supplicate to Me with a pure heart and honest tongue. Be as exactly as I ordered you to be: comply with My orders and do not be haughty against My servants for that which you have not originated for yourself. Seek nearness to Me, for I am near to you. I have not ordained you to do what is heavy for you; I only ask you to pray to me so that I will answer you, to ask Me so that I will give you, and to approach to Me through the things that I have supplied you with their interpretation and I am responsible for revealing them perfectly.
25 - O Moses, look down to the ground, for it will soon be your grave. Raise your sight toward the heavens, for there is surely a great kingdom. Weep for yourself as long as you are (living) in this world. Beware of perdition and destructions. Do not be deceived be the illusory pleasures of this world. Do not accede to wrongness and do not be unjust, for I am waylaying the unjust until I retaliate for the oppressed ones.
26 - O Moses, the single good deed is rewarded tenfold, while perdition comes from the single bad deed. Do not associate others with Me. It is illicit for you to associate anything with Me. Be as close as possible then aim at the target. Supplicate to Me like the supplication of the desirous for that which is with Me and the regretful for what he had committed. Blackness of night is erased by daylight and, in the same manner, the good deeds erase the evildoings. Gloomy of night covers up the light of day and, in the same manner, the evildoings blacken the good deeds.
