Dialogue

God says to Moses**:

وَمَا تِلۡكَ بِيَمِينِكَ يَـٰمُوسَىٰ

*And what is that in your right hand, O Moses?

To which Moses replies

قَالَ هِىَ عَصَاىَ

He said, “This is my staff,

أَتَوَڪَّؤُاْ عَلَيۡہَا

wherein I lean,

وَأَهُشُّ بِہَا عَلَىٰ غَنَمِى

cartoon_sheepand wherewith I beat down branches for my sheep,

وَلِىَ فِيہَا مَـَٔارِبُ أُخۡرَىٰ

and I have therein other uses.”

.

.

Even though God already knows the many uses of the staff, Prophet Moses gives an extensive response after only being asked what was in his right hand.

.

He is not asked about the use of the staff but due to his immense love of God and his desire to prolong his conversation, he tells God about the many uses of his staff.

.

A believer loves God, and that is why he loves to recite the Quran and stand up to pray.

.

reading boyIf you want to speak to God stand up and pray, and when you want to to hear what God has to say to you, recite the Qur’an or listen to it being recited to you.
