Full Faith and Real/Permanent Interest


41. When the sorcerers came, they said to Pharaoh: "If we are victorious, there is indeed a reward for us, is there not?"
42. "Yes," he said, "then you will be of my near ones."
43. And Moses said to them: "Throw what you will throw!"
44. So they threw out their ropes and their staffs and said: "By the honor and glory of Pharaoh, we shall prevail."
45. So Moses threw his staff. And behold, he devoured all that they had brought forth as their craft.
46. Then the sorcerers fell prostrate.
47. They said: "We believe in the Lord of the worlds."
48. "In the Lord of Moses and Aaron."
49. Pharaoh cried out: "You believed in him before I gave you permission! He is your elder who taught you all magic. Soon you will know. I swear by Allah that I will cut off your hands and your feet crosswise, and I swear by Allah that I will hang you all together."
50. They said: "There is no harm, we shall return to our Lord anyway,
51. We hope that our Lord will forgive us our mistakes because we were the first to believe."

An example of complete faith and at the same time a true and lasting self-interest.
Here, the sorcerers, who had been sinners until that day, suddenly realize their mistake thanks to the evidence they witnessed and surrender to Allah with their whole being. Not only do they give up their position/fame and other rewards, but they also openly turn to the truth, even at the risk of their lives (and at the same time repent for all the wrong they have done in the past). This behavior, which at first glance appears to be altruistic, is in fact, on the contrary, a step towards true salvation and eternal success, free from the self-persecution, i.e. self-sacrifice, that they have been doing up to now.

50. They said: "It does not matter, we shall return to our Lord anyway,
51. We hope that our Lord will forgive us our mistakes because we were the first to believe."

Here is one of the most sincere examples of repentance and surrender... And "reaching the wisdom of understanding what the true/permanent interest is and turning towards it, choosing the good... There is not even the slightest doubt or uncertainty in their minds, they have fully realized the truth. Everyone is already aware of this truth by virtue of the revelations within them from birth/creation and the evidence they encounter later on, but some stubbornly try to turn their backs on this self-evident knowledge and thereby ruin themselves and those around them all their lives. But as seen here, new evidence can sometimes break this stubbornness and cause one to prostrate oneself. A person who is on the side of goodness and reason cannot resist any longer and ends the persecution of denying the truth.

Another point is that the sorcerers here are having such an experience because they deserve to repent and be saved, that is, because they are the ones whose goodness outweighs the bad. In any case, everyone gets what they deserve in this 2-day world of trials:

I explained that Islam teaches us what our true salvation and interest is and how to achieve it:

In reality, those who destroy themselves and those around them and sacrifice themselves in an eternal sense are the wicked people of hell, whereas the "true beneficiaries" are the good people of heaven who lead themselves and those around them to salvation and happiness.

Ankebut 6. Whoever strives for us strives for himself. God is not in need of anyone.

By the way, we have explained the reason for the ancient Egyptian Pharaohs' interest in crosswise in verse 49 here:

I wrote on Twitter: -Sometimes you are defeated but you have actually won, sometimes you win but you have actually been defeated, but the best thing is to win and actually win.

The sorcerers in this incident are the winners in defeat, but the most beautiful is of course the experience of the Prophet Moses, who won in win.
