No one believed in Moses except some young people of his own tribe who were at the same time very afraid of the persecution of the Pharaoh and his people. The Pharaoh was certainly a tyrant and a transgressor. (83) Moses said: "O my people! If ye do (really) believe in Allah, then in Him put your trust if ye submit (your will to His)." (84) Whereupon they answered: "In God have we placed our trust! O our Sustainer, make us not a plaything for evildoing folk, (85) And do Thou deliver us by Thy mercy from the unbelieving people. (86) And We revealed to Musa and his brother, saying: Take for your people houses to abide in Egypt and make your houses places of worship and keep up prayer and give good news to the believers. (87) And Musa (Moses) said: "Our Lord! You have indeed bestowed on Fir'aun (Pharaoh) and his chiefs splendour and wealth in the life of this world, our Lord! That they may lead men astray from Your Path. Our Lord! Destroy their wealth, and harden their hearts, so that they will not believe until they see the painful torment." (88) [God] answered: "Accepted is this your prayer! Continue, then, both of you, steadfastly on the right way, and follow not the path of those who have no knowledge [of right and wrong]." (89) ۞ And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, "I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims." (90) What! Now! When hitherto thou hast rebelled and been of the wrong-doers? (91) So We shall save your body this day, so that you may serve as a sign for those who come after you: for many people are indeed heedless of Our signs." (92)
