The beginning of the story of Prophet Shuaib, peace be upon him

The story of Prophet Shuaib, peace be upon him

The Prophet Shuaib, peace be upon him, came with the same invitation that every prophet who came before him, which does not change or change, and it is the monotheism of God Almighty, but the detail of his call came to correct people their behavior, which at that time was widespread, which is the lack of cleanliness of the hand and the heart.

And that came in detail in the Almighty’s saying, “And do not decrease the measure and the weight. Indeed, I see that you are doing well, and I fear for you the chastisement of a severe punishment.” (Yahu 84).

The people of Madyan, the people to whom the Prophet of God Shuaib, peace be upon him, was sent, considered that people’s depreciation of their things was a skill and cunning, but the Prophet Shuaib came to warn them that this is theft, and that he feared for them the punishment of the Day of Resurrection, and this is how Shuaib looks at people’s lives, and watches their dealings Buying and selling.

And then advise them saying ۞ O my people fulfilled their weights and measures with justice, and make every people have their personal items not mischief in the earth corruptors rest ۞ God is good for you if you are believers and what I am to you Bhviz ۞ (Hud .. verse 85-86), and in that verse, we find that The Prophet Shuaib repeated the advice to his people, but this time he came to advise and not forbid as in the previous verse, and he remained in this advice to them for years, but they did not respond.

He kept advising his people that the matter was dangerous, and lifted the curtain on God’s punishment for this corruption, and thus ends the first part of Shuaib’s call, who was speaking and his people were listening, until the moment came when his people spoke, and they said to him: Does your prayer command you to leave what we used to worship and what we used to worship? Do with our money as we want? They accused him that this is religion or this is wisdom!!

This accusation was based on the fact that the people of Madyan believed that the prayer of the Prophet of God Shuaib had made him unaware of their nature in which they had been living for many years. The people of Madyan were infidels, blocking roads on people, and removing a tree called the grove, and they were among the worst treated people.

Don’t miss it either

That is why they mocked the Prophet Shuaib and were amazed at who he was calling them to, and completely rejected that Shuaib’s prayer interferes with their religion and their dealings with people, and told him that religion has nothing to do with material transactions, and thus they completely denied that religion has anything to do with behavior and economy, and in this attempt to differentiate between the style of Life and religion completely rejected what the Prophet of God Shuaib was calling for.

The story of our master Shuaib, peace be upon him, with the owners of the coffin

The situation with the people of Madyan changed, so he moved from mocking the Prophet of God Shuaib to attacking him, because he established the argument of faith against them, and told them that what they were doing was not accepted by God, but his people saw him as weak and humiliated, and they were afraid of his family, so they were very reluctant to kill him. But they wanted to get rid of the Prophet Shuaib in order to live as they wanted, worshiping the grove and undermining the people in a bushel.

So; The people of our master Shuaib, after they were fed up with him, decided to expel him from the village, and they gave him the choice between returning to their religion or being homeless, but the Prophet Shuaib refused outright and there was not even an opportunity to negotiate what they requested, and the conflict continued between the people of Madyan and their Prophet Shuaib.

Again and accuse the prophet of lying and once accuse him that he Charmed, that the same God’s prophet Shoaib his hand of Midian, and said to them as stated in the book of Allah ۞uya people do them on your prestige I worker will know who he gets the punishment of Akhozah and who is a liar and Artqbwa I am with you sergeant ۞ ( Surah Hud.. Verse 93)

And the people entered with the Prophet Shuaib in a challenge, so they started asking him to show them this eclipse that will be sent to them from heaven if it is true, so they started asking about God’s torment, where is this torment and how it was formed and why it is delayed, all this in a mockery of the Prophet.

Then after that, God revealed to our master Shuaib to expel the believers in him and to go out with them, and indeed the people of Shuaib came out with him from the village that had wronged itself, and God sent down the torment who were waiting for him, so a cry came that was one, came to them from a cloud that overshadowed them, so they rejoiced a lot because they thought it It brings them rain, but they were surprised that they were facing a great torment.

A mighty shriek overtook them, and made every one of the debtors stoop to his face. This great shriek stunned all living creatures. No one could run or move, or even save himself by hiding. All of them died after the shout came, and what they were mocking at became true. And the people of Madyan were completely perished, and none of them remained, except that he went out with our master Shuaib, among those who believed in his message.
