28:21 Moses’ retreat

1 min read

He therefore got away therefrom, looking about, in a state of fear. He prayed “O my Lord! save me from people given to wrong-doing.”

Moses saw that his position was now untenable,
both in the Palace and in the City, and indeed anywhere
in Pharaoh’s territory. So he suffered voluntary exile. But
he did not know where to go to.
His mind was in a state of agitation. But he turned to
Allah and prayed. He got consolation, and felt that after
all it was no hardship to leave Egypt, where there was so
much injustice and oppression.
