The story of Musa (as) and Pharaoh has countless timeless lessons for the believers to understand the continuous struggle between truth and falsehood. BY ABU YUSUF In one passage in Sura Al-Zhukruf from verses 46 to 56, Allah ﷻ gives us an account of the nature of the struggle between Musa (as) and Pharaoh. In this brief article, I want to focus on how Pharaoh mobilised public opinion against Musa (as) and his followers. It is essential to understand that controlling and commanding public opinion by any state or authority is equally important as commanding an army. Controlling the general public opinion is what gives a state the authority to rule and enact policies. It legitimises the action of the ruler in the minds of the public. It is essential for aware Muslims to be mindful of public opinion and those who shape and control it, and it is through this awareness one can identify the hidden aims and plans of the ruler or the state.

Former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, like many other failed politicians, saw an opportunity to boost his credibility this week, by attacking Muslim women and comparing them to ‘bank robbers’ simply because they wear Islamic dress. This attack by some of the Jews and Christians (People of the book) is not new, and Allah warns us to remain vigilant against their plans and to remain steadfast on Islam. If we do this then their plots cannot harm us and in fact they will bring Muslims closer to Islam.
