Many authorities agree, that the prophet Musa and prophet Harun where brothers. Blood brothers.
And when Musa AS was given the mission to meet Fir'aun..
this time to stop his ignorance, to spread the truth, to end his cruel reign, to remind him of who he really was in front of Allah..
"Go to Fir'aun! Verily, he has transgressed (all bounds in disbelief and disobedience, and has behaved as an arrogant, and as a tyrant)."
Musa asked Allah that his dear beloved brother..Harun, would be with him, so that things would be much smoother for him. Musa said..
"O my Lord! Open for me my chest (grant me self-confidence, contentment, and boldness). And ease my task for me. And make loose the knot (the defect) from my tongue, (remove the incorrectness from my speech). That they understand my speech, And appoint for me a helper from my family, Harun, my brother; Increase my strength with him, And let him share my task (of conveying Allah's Message and Prophethood), That we may glorify You much, And remember You much, Verily! You are of us Ever a Well-Seer."
MasyaAllah..those words.."Harun, my brother; Increase my strength with him"
think about it for a moment..
When we're alone and in much need of company, aren't the ones closest to us; the ones we love the most, considered the strongest support we could have.
Just imagine, when you're in the heat of exams, and stress starts building up..
who do you call?? your parents rite!!
erk..no?? ahh, then there's something wrong there mate..
So the point here is Musa asked for Harun, because he really needed Harun, and for him Harun was the best support he need. And surely Musa loved Harun.
So now, if WE were like Musa, how much effort have we put in ensuring that the ones closest to us share our understandings, feel what we feel, know our tasks and ready to support us.
Believe me, those closest to us, those who once grew along with us, would be the most supportive when they understand.
So look around you, family, friends, classmates, roommates, work buddies, those that you love, they are really just waiting for you to tell them, its just that you never did. And pray, do pray. Ask that Allah shows them the way..because there is no one who knows better than Allah
For You are the Almighty
