How Man Ruins Himself

Qur’aanic Verses 20.49 & 20.50:




49. Qala faman rabbukuma ya moosa

50. Qala rabbuna allathee aAAta kulla shay-in khalqahu thumma hada


49. Pharaoh asked, “And who is the Lord of you two, Moses?”

50. Moses said, “Our Lord is He Who gave everything its creation, and then guided it.”5 

Study Note:

5. This reply of Moses to Pharaoh is noteworthy. Allah guides everything He has created – including man. But man has been given an additional thing: freedom of choice. Exercising this freedom, most of mankind, unfortunately, reject divine guidance and thus ruin themselves.


The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.

Mohammad Shafi



  1. Good explanation

  2. and they keyword here is “rejection”
    it hold the key to those who reflect..

    some rejects Prophets and some rejects their tradition.

    man need to judge which position holds chances of a greater loss, follow a wrong tradition of prophet mistakenly or reject a true tradition of prophet mistakenly..

    indeed rejection is a heavy thing and man does not think much before rejecting..
