6 Miracles of Prophet Musa

Allah bestowed Prophet Musa عَلَيْهِ ٱلسَّلَامُ with many miracles (mojzat) so that the Bani Israel would accept the message of Allah. Here is a list of all those miracles.

Miracle 1: Stick became a snake

Allah gave Prophet Musa عليه السلام many miracles, the first one being his stick which turned into a snake.

Allah asked: What is that in your right hand? – Taha 20:17

Hazrat Musa عليه السلام replied: It is my staff! I lean on it, and with it, I beat down branches for my sheep, and have other uses for it. – Taha 20:18

  • Allah said, “Throw it down.”

The stick became a big snake and Prophet Musa عليه السلام ran away without looking back. – Al-Qasas 28:31

Allah said: “Take it (snake) and have no fear. We will return it to its former state.

Miracle 2: Shining Hand

The second miracle/mojza given to Hazrat Musa عليه السلام by Allah was his shining hand.

Prophet Musa عليه السلام, who was dark-skinned, was asked to put his hand under his armpit. When he took it out, it was shining white, but not from a skin condition like melanoma. – Taha 20:22

When Moses put his arm through the opening in his collar again, his hand returned to its original color.

Allah asked Hazrat Musa عليه السلام to go to Pharoah and his chiefs with these two miracles and invite them to Allah. – Al-Qasas 28:32

Miracle 3: Earth swallowed Qarun

Allah gave another miracle to Prophet Musa عليه السلام when Qarun blamed the prophet for committing Zina. Allah commanded the earth to swallow up Qarun and his mansion saying: “O earth! Take them! And it took them to their feet.

  • Then again he said: Take them! And it took them to their knees.
  • Then again he said: Take them! And it took them to their shoulders.
  • Then again he said: O earth! Bring their riches and treasures! Then Prophet Musa عليه السلام pointed with his hand and they also sank into the earth.

Allah says: We caused the earth to swallow him up, along with his home. There was no one to help him against Allah, nor could he even help himself. – Al-Qasas 28:81

Miracle 4: The Splitting of Red Sea

Another miracle was given to Prophet Musa عليه السلام in 1276 BC. When he was 80 years old, Allah inspired him to leave Egypt for Syria with Bani Israel at night time.  Prophet Musa عليه السلام left for Syria with around 600,000 people of Bani Israel, which is called Exodus. 

When Pharoah learned this, he followed them at sunrise with an army of around 1.6 million people.

There was an ocean on one side and the army of Pharoah on the other side. Allah asked Prophet Musa عليه السلام to strike the sea with his staff, and the sea was split; each part was like a huge mountain. – Ash-Shu’ara 26:63

Ibn Abbas رضي الله عنه said the sea was divided into 12 paths, one for each tribe. There were windows through which they could see one another, and the water was erected like walls.” Hazrat Musa عليه السلام and his followers crossed the ocean safely.

Miracle 5: Mann-O-Salwa

Bani Israel requested Prophet Musa عليه السلام to ask Allah to provide them with food, and Allah gave him a miracle by presenting them with one of the foods of Jannah called Mann and Salwa.

Mann was like the dew drops that appeared on rocks, trees, and plants. Later, it became a sweet honey-like substance they used to pick up and savor. Mann used to descend on them as snow fell, and it was sweeter than honey and whiter than snow.

Salwa was a type of bird, basically a Quail. The people used to capture it, upon which it would turn into roasted meat. It was a blessing like none other and showered upon none other but Bani Israel on the request and prayers of Prophet Musa عليه السلام.

Miracle 6: Murder Mystery

Allah helped Prophet Musa عليه السلام through a miracle by helping him resolve a murder mystery.

A rich man from Bani Israel was killed by his nephew, his only heir, and the body was thrown at the door of an innocent man.

After a lengthy investigation, no one was identified as the killer. Prophet Musa عليه السلام prayed for guidance and was told that the only way to find the killer was to sacrifice a cow and strike the victim with a piece of it.

However, due to their soft corner for cows (golden calf), they started asking questions as they did not want to sacrifice a cow.

  • Bani Israel asked: Clarify for us what type ˹of cow˺ it should be!”
  • Allah said: The cow should neither be old nor young but in between. – Al-Baqara 2:68
  • Bani Israel asked: Specify for us its color.
  • Allah said: It should be a bright yellow cow—pleasant to see. – Al-Baqara 2:69
  • Bani Israel asked: Make clear to us which cow, for all cows look the same to us. – Al-Baqara 2:70
  • Allah said: It should have been used neither to till the soil nor water the fields; wholesome and without blemish. – Al-Baqara 2:71
  • Bani Israel said: “Now you have come with the truth.” Yet they still slaughtered it hesitantly!

When they struck the victim with the flesh of the cow, the dead body spoke miraculously and said who the killer was.
