24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

The Book of Musa and the Leadership of the Children of Israel

Allah says;

وَلَقَدْ اتَيْنَا مُوسَى الْكِتَابَ

And indeed We gave Musa the Scripture.

Allah tells us that He gave the Book -- the Tawrah -- to His servant and Messenger Musa, peace be upon him.

فَلَ تَكُن فِي مِرْيَةٍ مِّن لِّقَايِهِ

So, be not you in doubt of meeting him.

Qatadah said,

"This refers to the Night of Isra',"

then he narrated that Abu Al-Aliyah Ar-Riyahi said,

"The cousin of your Prophet, meaning Ibn Abbas, told me that the Messenger of Allah said;

أُرِيتُ لَيْلَةَ أُسْرِيَ بِي مُوسى بْنَ عِمْرَانَ رَجُلً ادَمَ طِوَالاً جَعْدًا كَأَنَّهُ مِنْ رِجَالِ شَنُوءَةَ وَرَأَيْتُ عِيسى رَجُلً مَرْبُوعَ الْخَلْقِ إِلَى الْحُمْرَةِ وَالْبَيَاضِ سَبْط الرَّأْسِ وَرَأَيْتُ مَالِكًا خَازِنَ النَّارِ وَالدَّجَّال

On the night of Isra', I saw Musa bin Imran, a tall, brown-skinned man with curly hair, looking like the men of Shanu'ah; and I saw `Isa, a man of medium stature and ruddy white skin, and with lank hair. And I saw Malik the Keeper of Hell, and the Dajjal.

Among the signs which Allah showed him were;
فَلَ تَكُن فِي مِرْيَةٍ مِّن لِّقَايِهِ
(So, be not you in doubt of meeting him). i.e., he saw Musa and met with him on the Night of Isra'."

وَجَعَلْنَاهُ

And We made it

means, `the Book which We gave to him, '

هُدًى لِّبَنِي إِسْرَايِيلَ



a guide to the Children of Israel.

This is similar to what Allah says in Surah Al-Isra';

وَءَاتَيْنَأ مُوسَى الْكِتَـبَ وَجَعَلْنَاهُ هُدًى لِّبَنِى إِسْرَءِيلَ أَلاَّ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِن دُونِى وَكِيلً

And We gave Musa the Scripture and made it a guidance for the Children of Israel (saying);"Take none other than Me as Trustee." (17;2)

وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْهُمْ أَيِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا لَمَّا صَبَرُوا وَكَانُوا بِأيَاتِنَا يُوقِنُونَ
