Qasas ul Anbiya: Stories of the Prophets

6. Hazrat Ismael (Prophet Ishmael)

The story of Hazrat Ismael’s sacrifice is a powerful testament to faith and obedience. In this story, Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) is tested by Allah with a command to sacrifice his beloved son, Ismael. Ibrahim prepares to carry out the command, but at the moment of sacrifice, Allah intervenes and provides a ram to be sacrificed in Ismael’s place. This act of submission to Allah’s will is commemorated by Muslims around the world during the festival of Eid al-Adha.

7. Hazrat Musa (Prophet Moses)

The story of Hazrat Musa, known as Prophet Moses in other traditions, is one of the most compelling narratives in Islamic history. Born into a time when the Pharaoh of Egypt was oppressing the Israelites, Musa was set adrift in the Nile by his mother to save him from the Pharaoh’s decree to kill all newborn Hebrew boys. Rescued by the Pharaoh’s own family, Musa was raised in the royal household but never forgot his heritage.

As an adult, after accidentally killing a man, Musa fled to the desert where he received his prophetic mission at the burning bush: to return to Egypt and lead the Israelites to freedom. With his brother Harun (Aaron), Musa confronted the Pharaoh, demanding the release of his people. When the Pharaoh refused, Egypt was struck by a series of plagues. Finally, the Pharaoh relented, but later pursued the Israelites to the edge of the Red Sea. In a miraculous event, the sea parted, allowing Musa and the Israelites to escape, while the pursuing Egyptian forces were destroyed. Musa then received the Torah at Mount Sinai, a pivotal moment in the religious history that established the covenant between Allah and the Israelites. Musa’s life is marked by his unwavering faith and his role as a leader and messenger of Allah.
