The first miracle
The first wonder exhibited by this stone which is in fact a miracle of Sayyiduna Musa was its long run full of wisdom. The discovery of this stone is also by virtue of this miracle.
Now the details of this wonderful event are presented. It was the tradition of the Bani Israel to bathe nude publically. Although Sayyiduna Musa 1 4- who was also a member of the same society, was born and raised in the same environment, Allah Jr.9 raised his ranks by blessing him with the dignified status of Prophethood. Therefore, how could the dignified modesty of Prophethood adopt such immodesty!
Sayyiduna Musa t1:J1 4- was very much against the immodesty of the Bani Israel. He t1:J1 4- would either bathe in isolation or by covering his body with a sheet. When the Bani Israel saw that he t1:J1 4- had not yet taken bathe nude, the wicked people blamed him by saying that he t1:J1 4- had a white mark of Leucoderma on his private parts or had some kind of deformity on his body which he (1:J1 4i concealed by not getting undressed in public. The wicked people openly announced this blame so much that there was not a corner to which the rumours about Sayyiduna Musa had not reached. He rll!.J19″ was very much grieved and saddened due to this blame.
Obviously, Allah Jb did not like to see His beloved Kaleem in such a state of grief and anxiety, and to see his honourable Rasool being falsely blamed. The Most Merciful Rab created such means of freeing Sayyiduna Musa 1 9″ from the blames declaring his purity that completely killed the evil plans and doubts of the Bani Israel within a few minutes. The evidence of his purity from such blames became evident more than the shining sun that brightens the entire world. Sayyiduna Musa went to bathe at a hidden spring of water in the midst of the mountains. After making sure that there is no chance of anybody, he rll!.J1 9″ placed his blessed clothes on a stone and proceeded to bathe completely nude. After taking bath, he rll!.J1 4,, returned to the stone to wear his clothes. He saw that the stone was running away, taking his clothes with it! Upon seeing this, Sayyiduna Musa rll!.J1 4,,
also ran after it, saying stone, my clothes! 0 stone, The stone kept on running. It ran to the extent
that it entered the main avenues of the city and
eventually ran into the streets of the city.
Sayyiduna Musa rll!.J1 kept on following
the stone whilst having no clothes on. This
way, the youth and adults of the Bani Israel
witnessed with their own eyes that the
blessed body of Sayyiduna Musa rll!.J1 had no
deformity from head to toe. And instead, every
limb of the blessed body of Sayyiduna Musa rll!.J1 4,,
had such perfection and beauty that it was impossible to
find such example among ordinary people. Therefore, they all exclaimed:
( -91 lj) i.e. by Allah(.;), Musa (rll!.J1 ) is flawless. When this stone exposed the purity and perfection of Sayyiduna Musa rll!.J1 ’ it automatically stopped. Sayyiduna Musa r1:l1 put on the clothes quickly and put the stone in his bag. (Sahih Bukhari, Kitab-ul-Ambiya, vol. 2, chapter 30, pp. 442, Hadees 3404; Tafseer As-Saawi, vol. 5, pp. 1659; Part 22, Surah Al-Ahzaab, Ayah 69)Allah_;}” has described this event in Holy Quran in the following words:
O believers! Do not be like the people who troubled Musa, so Allah freed him from that allegation they had mentioned. And Musa is honourable in the sight ofAllah.
