Al Qasas V.22-43
And when he came to the well of Madyan, he found there a crowd of people watering [their flocks], and he found aside from them two women driving back [their flocks]. He said, “What is your circumstance?” They said, “We do not water until the shepherds dispatch [their flocks]; and our father is an old man.”
So he watered [their flocks] for them; then he went back to the shade and said, “My Lord, indeed I am, for whatever good You would send down to me, in need.” [Al Qasas:23-24]
When Musa (as) fled from Egypt he had nothing with him and had been struggling in the desert alone. The first town he gets to he does not think about himself before others; he remembers to assist those that are in need. For me this was the most striking thing because whenever we are in a small difficulty we believe everyone should help us and at that time we never think of helping anyone else. It was a great lesson for me in the correct behavior of a righteous Muslim.
