That is how We returned him to his mother so that she might delighther eyes and feel no grief and so that she would know that God's promise istrue. But most of them do not know this. (Qur'an, 28: 10-13)
The baby Musa refused all the wet nurses, that is, he did not drink their milk, because, according to the destiny outlined for him, God had ordained himto drink only his own mother's milk. This makes light of the fact that everythinghuman beings wish for are also in compliance with the destiny ordained by God.As had been revealed to his mother, the Prophet Musa ultimately returned to hisown family.
MUSA (AS) FLEES FROM EGYPT
The Qur'an relates the following event in Musa's life:
He (Musa) entered the city at a time when its inhabitants were unawareand found two men fighting there—one from his party and the other fromhis enemy. The one from his party asked for his support against the otherfrom his enemy. So Musa hit him, dealing him a fatal blow. He said, "This ispart of Satan's handiwork. He truly is an outright and misleading enemy."(Qur'an, 28: 15)
The above mentioned event reveals to us a situation in which Musa witnessed afight involving a man from his own party, whereupon, without considering whowas right, he sided with, smiting the other. Though he did not intend to kill him,the man died from the blow. He had committed a crime unintentionally.Alerted by his conscience, Musa promptly grasped that this sentiment wasan evil from the influence of Satan, and, accordingly, sought refuge from it inGod and repented. In the following verses, we read of the exemplary andconscientious approach adopted by Musa:
He said, "My Lord, I have wronged myself. Forgive me." So He (God)forgave him. He is the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Merciful. He said, "MyLord, because of Your blessing to me, I will never be a supporter of evildoers." (Qur'an, 28: 16-17)
Musa acknowledged his error; that of protecting a man, contrary to justice, purely because he was from his own tribe.
