HAMAN

AL-QASAS  -28

 

28:6-8

And to enable them in the land, and to show Pharaoh and Haamaan and their troops what they had feared.

 

And We inspired to Moses' mother:

"Suckle him, and when you become fearful for him, then cast him off in the sea, and do not fear nor grieve. We will return him to you and We will make him of the messengers."

 

Then the family of Pharaoh picked him up, so he would be an enemy to them and a source of sadness. Certainly, Pharaoh and Haamaan and their troops were wrongdoers.

28:38-42

And Pharaoh said:

"O commanders, I have not known of any god for you other than me. Therefore, O Haamaan, fire-up the bricks and make for me a high platform, so perhaps I may take a look at the god of Moses; though I think he is one of the liars."

 

And he and his soldiers were arrogant in the land without any right, and they thought that they would not be returned to Us.

So We took him and his soldiers, and We cast them into the sea. So see how was the end of the wicked! We made them leaders, inviting to the Fire. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be supported. And We made them followed by a curse in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be despised.

 

AL-ANKABOOT  -29

 

29:38-43

And 'Aad and Thamud. Much was made apparent to you from their dwellings. The devil had adorned their works in their eyes, thus he diverted them from the path, even though they could see.

And Qaroon, and Pharaoh, and Haamaan; Moses went to them with clear proofs. But they became arrogant in the land,

and they were not the first. We took each by his sins.

Some of them We sent upon him violent winds, some of them were taken by the scream, some of them We caused the earth to swallow, and some of them We drowned. God is not the One who wronged them; it is they who wronged themselves.

The example of those who take allies besides God is like the spider how it makes a home; and the weakest home is the home of the spider, if only they knew.

God knows that what they are calling on besides Him is nothing. He is the Noble, the Wise.

Such are the examples We put forth for the people, but none comprehend except the knowledgeable.

 

AL-GHAFIR  -40

 

40:24-37

To Pharaoh, Haamaan, and Qaroon.

But they said:

A lying magician!

 

Then, when the truth came to them from Us,

they said:

Kill the children of those who believed with him, and rape their women.

 

But the planning of the rejecters is always in error.

And Pharaoh said:

Leave me to kill Moses, and let him call upon his Lord. I fear that he may change your system, or that he will cause evil to spread throughout the land.

 

And Moses said:

I seek refuge with my Lord and your Lord from every arrogant one who does not believe in the Day of Reckoning

 

And a believing man from among the people of Pharaoh,

who had concealed his belief, said:

Will you kill a man simply for saying:

My Lord is God, and he has come to you with proofs from your Lord? And if he is a liar, then his lie will be upon him, and if he is truthful, then some of what he is promising you will afflict you. For God does not guide any transgressor, liar.

O my people, you have the kingship today throughout the land.

But then who will save us against the torment of God,

should it come to us?

 

Pharaoh said:

I am showing you that which I see, and I am guiding you in the right path.

 

And the one who believed said:

O my people, I fear for you the same fate as the day of the opponents. Like the fate of the people of Noah, Aad, and Thamud, and those after them. And God does not wish any injustice for the servants. And, O my people, I fear for you the Day of mutual blaming. A Day when you will turn around and flee, you will have no protector besides God, and whoeverGod sends astray, then there is none who can guide him.

And Joseph had come to you before with proofs,

but you remained in doubt regarding what he came to you with, until when he died,

you said:

God will not send any messenger after him.

 

It is such that God sends astray he who is a transgressor, doubter. Those who dispute about the revelations of God without any authority that has come to them, it is greatly abhorred with God and with those who believe. God thus seals the hearts of every arrogant tyrant.

 

And Pharaoh said:

O Haamaan, build for me a high platform that I may uncover the secrets. The secrets of the heavens, so that I may take a look at the god of Moses; though I think he is a liar.

 

Thus the evil works of Pharaoh were adorned for him, and he was blocked from the path. And the planning of Pharaoh brought nothing but regret.
