28:22 Moses in Madyan

1 min read

Then, when he turned his face towards (the land of) Madyan, he said: “I do hope that my Lord will show me the smooth and straight Path.”

East of Lower Egypt, for about 300 miles, runs
the Sinai Peninsula, bounded on the south by the Gulf of
Suez, and on the north by what was the Isthmus of
Suez, now cut by the Suez Canal. Over the Isthmus ran
the highroad to Palestine and Syria, but a fugitive could
not well take that road, as the Egyptians were after him.
If he could, after crossing the Isthmus, plunge into the
Sinai desert, east or south-east, he would be in the
Midianite territory, where the people would be Arabs and
not Egyptians. He turned thither, and again prayed to
Allah for guidance.
