Like a soul who has a lot of questions and none of the complete answers, I am a meek one. These days the questions which are not letting me sleep are weird. I don’t know why they are coming in my mind and in my nightmares. I don’t qualify for that.
Why Musa A.S. became afraid when Allah transformed his stick into a snake? It was Allah who was talking to him and He said don’t be afraid.
Why Ibrahim A.S. had to fight his Nafs when Allah asked him to sacrifice?
Why the greatest of all the Prophets were confused sometimes when Allah asked them to oblige for some hardest of tasks?
They were Prophets. Talking directly to Allah and getting direct messages. Musa A.S. was the luckiest ones to chat with Allah in the relative time. He usually got his replies right at the moment. Not like some other Prophets who had to wait for the divine reply for weeks or months. But then why he questioned Allah’s orders time to time?
In the mainstream human lives, there comes moment when I see people who didn’t confuse themselves before obliging for Allah. I have even read stories of people who didn’t have to fight their Nafs because they were right on track to oblige and sacrifice. But why Prophets… they were too above… so close to Allah…???
I am a human being… graded to the least bit. I am one of those kinds who ask themselves “Who was it” after having a good or bad dream. Was it devil or a jinn? I have a lot of dimensions to think about after every thought that comes in my mind because I am too ordinary to think extraordinary.
But why did the Prophets…? They were talking directly to The Lord.
Alas! I don’t have a Baba Gee to answer my conflicting questions.
