قَالَ مُوسَىٰ لِقَوْمِهِ ٱسْتَعِينُوا۟ بِٱللَّـهِ وَٱصْبِرُوٓا۟ ۖ إِنَّ ٱلْأَرْضَ لِلَّـهِ يُورِثُهَا مَن يَشَآءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِۦ ۖ وَٱلْعَـٰقِبَةُ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ

Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) said to his people, “Turn to Allah Ta‘ala for help and persevere. Indeed the earth belongs to Allah Ta‘ala. He causes to inherit it whom He wills from His servants, and the best outcome is for the righteous. (Surah Aa’raaf v128)

It was on the occasion of ‘Aashura that Allah Ta‘ala delivered Nabi Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) and his people, the Banu Israaeel, to safety and destroyed the tyrant Fir‘aun and his army.

To illustrate the point, Wahb (rahimahullah) narrated the following incident:

Fadhal bin Rabee’ narrates the following incident:

I once set out for hajj in the company of the khaleefah, Haroon Rasheed. En route, we passed by the city of Kufah where we encountered Bahlool, (who was known as) the madman (due to him being madly in love with Allah Ta‘ala), who was muttering and babbling away. I said to him, “Keep silent! Ameerul Mu-mineen has arrived!” Thus, he ceased his muttering and remained silent.

When the carriage of Haroon Rasheed drew near to him, he suddenly called out, “O Ameerul Mu-mineen! Ayman bin Naabil narrated to me that Qudaamah bin ‘Abdillah Al-‘Aamiri (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentioned, ‘I saw Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mounted on a camel in Mina. He (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was seated on a worn, old saddle. There (in the presence of Rasulullah [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam]), the people were not struck, pushed or shouted at, “Move! Move!” (i.e. the Sahaabah [radhiyallahu ‘anhum] were neither hitting the people nor pushing them to clear the path for Rasulullah [sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam], as your entourage are doing here for you today).’”
