“O my People! Yours is the dominion this day: Ye have the upper hand in the land: but who will help us from the Punishment of Allah, should it befall us?” Pharaoh said: “I but point out to you that which I see (myself); Nor do I guide you but to the Path of Right!”

‘Do not be puffed up with arrogance because the
power is in your hands at present! Do you deserve it?
Will it last?
If you are sinning and drawing upon yourselves Allah’s
Punishment, is there anything that can shield you from
it?’


Pharaoh’s egotism and arrogance come out. ‘I
can see and understand everything. As I see things, so
do I direct you. The Path which I see must be right, and
you must follow it.’
