Background Verses

Today’s lesson mentioned the nation of Pharaoh and when Moses (as) went to the nation telling them he was a prophet. The elite denied and accused him of wanting to expel them from the land although all he said was that he wanted the Children of Israel to come with him. Below are the verses which we did in today’s class to provide a background for understanding:
And the magicians came to Pharaoh. They said, “Indeed for us is a reward if we are the predominant.” He said, “Yes, and, [moreover], you will be among those made near [to me].” They said, “O Moses, either you throw [your staff], or we will be the ones to throw [first].”
He said, “Throw,” and when they threw, they bewitched the eyes of the people and struck terror into them, and they presented a great [feat of] magic.
And We inspired to Moses, “Throw your staff,” and at once it devoured what they were falsifying.
So the truth was established, and abolished was what they were doing. And Pharaoh and his people were overcome right there and became debased. And the magicians fell down in prostration [to Allāh]. They said, “We have believed in the Lord of the worlds, The Lord of Moses and Aaron.” [Al A’raaf: 113-122]
