The virtue of Aashura is primarily linked to Sayyiduna Musa Alaihi Salaam.
As Muslimeen we believe in all the Ambiya of the past. We have a very close link with Nabi Musa Alaihi Salaam. Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said; “ We are closer to Musa than them.” [Bukhari]
Sayyiduna Musa is the most discussed Nabi in the Noble Quraan. He has been mentioned 124 times.
The Noble quraan is not a story book, hence it does not narrate the life episodes of Sayyiduna Musa in a chronological order. Rather, it makes refers to that which is related to the subject that is being discussed.
The Noble Quraan is a book of guidance for mankind. We need to derive guidance from the Noble Quraan.
So, why is there such frequent references to Sayyiduna Musa Alaihi Salaam in the Noble Quraan?
There are unique similarities between the life of Nabi sallallahu alaihi Wasalaam and the life of Sayyiduna Musa Alaihi Salaam.
1) Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam had to deal with the Quraish who were a dominant force that possessed power and might. Sayyiduna Musa Alaihi Salaam had to deal with Firoun and his people who also dominate and possessed power and might.
2) It a consolation to Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Musa Alaihi Salaam had to endure similar challenges to that which Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam endured.
3)There is also a warning to the disbelievers, that if they do not believe then they could face a similar end to Firoun and his people.
