Surah as-Saffat (Those Lined Up) 37 : 114
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
The descendants of Abraham and Isaac included Moses and Aaron. Here we only have a glimpse of the story of Moses and Aaron, highlighting God’s favours bestowed on them first in being chosen to deliver His message, then in saving them and their people from great distress, which is recounted in detail in other sūrahs. God’s favours on them also included their victory over their enemies, Pharaoh and his people, as also giving them the Scriptures and guiding them to the right path. It should be clear that God guides to this right path only those who believe in Him. He further ensured that they would be praised by future generations. This glimpse concludes with a greeting and blessing of peace from God to Moses and Aaron. Again the type of reward given to those who do good and the great value of faith, for which believers are held in honour, is repeated here.
