So he escaped from there, looking about in a state of fear. He said:"My Lord! Save me from the people who are Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers)!"
And when he went towards (the land of) Madyan (Midian) he said:"It may be that my Lord guides me to the Right Way."
And when he arrived at the water of Madyan (Midian) he found there a group of men watering (their flocks), and besides them he found two women who were keeping back (their flocks). He said:"What is the matter with you?" They said:"We cannot water (our flocks) until the shepherds take (their flocks). And our father is a very old man."
So he watered (their flocks) for them, then he turned back to shade, and said:"My Lord! Truly, I am in need of whatever good that You bestow on me!"
Then there came to him one of the two women, walking shyly. She said:"Verily, my father calls you that he may reward you for having watered (our flocks) for us." So when he came to him and narrated the story, he said:"Fear you not. You have escaped from the people who are Zalimun (polytheists, disbelievers, and wrong-doers)."
And said one of them (the two women):"O my father! Hire him! Verily, the best of men for you to hire is the strong, the trustworthy."
He said:"I intend to wed one of these two daughters of mine to you, on condition that you serve me for eight years, but if you complete ten years, it will be (a favour) from you. But I intend not to place you under a difficulty. If Allah will, you will find me one of the righteous."
He [Musa (Moses)] said:"That (is settled) between me and you whichever of the two terms I fulfill, there will be no injustice to me, and Allah is Surety over what we say."
Then, when Musa (Moses) had fulfilled the term, and was travelling with his family, he saw a fire in the direction of Tur (Mount). He said to his family:"Wait, I have seen a fire; perhaps I may bring to you from there some information, or a burning fire-brand that you may warm yourselves."
So when he reached it (the fire), he was called from the right side of the valley, in the blessed place from the tree:"O Musa (Moses)! Verily! I am Allah, the Lord of the"Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists)!
"And throw your stick!" But when he saw it moving as if it were a snake, he turned in flight, and looked not back. (It was said):"O Musa (Moses)! Draw near, and fear not. Verily, you are of those who are secure.
"Put your hand in your bosom, it will come forth white without a disease, and draw your hand close to your side to be free from fear (that which you suffered from the snake, and also by that your hand will return to its original state). these are two Burhan (signs, miracles, evidences, proofs) from your Lord to Fir"aun (Pharaoh) and his chiefs. Verily, they are the people who are Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).
He said:"My Lord! I have killed a man among them, and I fear that they will kill me.
"And my brother Harun (Aaron) he is more eloquent in speech than me so send him with me as a helper to confirm me. Verily! I fear that they will belie me."
Allah said:"We will strengthen your arm through your brother, and give you both power, so they shall not be able to harm you, with Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), you two as well as those who follow you will be the victors."
Then when Musa (Moses) came to them with Our Clear Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), they said:"This is nothing but invented magic. Never did we hear of this among our fathers of old."
Musa (Moses) said:"My Lord knows best him who came with guidance from Him, and whose will be the happy end in the Hereafter. Verily, the Zalimun (wrong-doers, polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) will not be successful."
Fir"aun (Pharaoh) said:"O chiefs! I know not that you have an ilah (a god) other than me, so kindle for me (a fire), O Haman, to bake (bricks out of) clay, and set up for me a Sarhan (a lofty tower, or palace, etc.) in order that I may look at (or look for) the Ilah (God) of Musa (Moses); and verily, I think that he [Musa (Moses)] is one of the liars."
And he and his hosts were arrogant in the land, without right, and they thought that they would never return to Us.
So We seized him and his hosts, and We threw them all into the sea (and drowned them). So behold (O Muhammad SAW) what was the end of the Zalimun [wrong-doers, polytheists and those who disbelieved in the Oneness of their Lord (Allah), or rejected the advice of His Messenger Musa (Moses) ].
