(1571-1451 BC): Moses the prophet. Hazrat Moosa (as.) was born in Misr (Egypt) in 1571 BC and stayed there for forty years (up to1531 BC), then he went to Madiyan and stayed there again for forty years (up to 1491 BC). He passed away at the age of 120 years in 1451 BC.
He was descendent of Hebrew (Ibranee) slaves who had migrated from Kanan (Palestine) to Egypt hundreds of years earlier. The Egyptian had enslaved the Hebrews and forced them to build large cities and places. The population of the Hebrew eventually grew so large that the Egyptian Pharaoh feared they could not be controlled. Therefore, at about the time of Hazrat Moosa’s birth, Pharaoh ordered to kill all male Hebrew children (according to another school of thought, Pharaoh’s personal astrologer had told him that soon a male child will took birth who will destroy his throne and everything. Therefore with the help of his Vizier Haman he decided that he would kill any and every male child that would take birth in his country. He thus killed thousands of male children). Hazrat Moosa’s mother hid her baby in a basket in the rushes on the bank of Nile River. The Pharaoh’s wife (Asiyah) found the infant and raised him with the help of Hazrat Moosa’s mother.
As an adult Hazrat Moosa saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew. He killed the Egyptian and fled into the desert. While living there as shepherd he married Safora, a daughter of a priest of Midianite tribe. They had two sons.
His followers are known as Banee Israeel (Israelite or Jews). Tavrat was revealed on Hazrat Moosa and it was scripted in Hebrew language. White Hazrat Moosa was on the Mount Sinai, his followers became impatient. They wanted a god that they could see. As a result they built a golden calf and began to worship. (Quran Shareef Soorah 2- Baqarah, Verse:51).
Mount Toor (Mount Sinai): Mount Sinai (2,285 meters) is a mountain in the southern Sinai Peninsula of Egypt.
