The Golden Calf | The Story of the Prophet Musa

The Golden Calf
Amongst the Israelites was a goldsmith called Samiri, who came from the tribe of Samara. This tribe worshiped idols. When Samiri joined the Israelites and accepted their faith, he still had inclinations towards idols. This inclination was sparked again when they saw the cow shaped idol at the Red Sea. So when Musa went to Mount Tur (Sinai) to receive the revelations, Samiri found his opportunity to make an idol for the people. Samiri used gold and jewelery to make a calf shaped idol. He then put some soil on it, thus giving the idol the ability to speak. The Israelites then began to worship the golden calf. Musa came back furious to see that within the time he was away, the Israelites had reverted to idol worshiping. Musa asked Samiri what he had done? Samiri told Musa that at the time of the Red Sea miracle, he was fortunate to see Jibreel E on a horse, which emitted green smoke as it, went past. He went to where the horse went by and grabbed hold of some of the soil. and placed this special soil on the golden calf that enabled it to speak. “I like this idol and I am proud of what I have done.” Musa told him that if this was the case then from this day on anybody who comes near and touches you will get burnt. Hence anybody that went near him was hurt. After a while Samiri went into exile in the Jungle where he lived out the rest of his life in disgrace. Qur’an: Ta Ha 95-104 & Ruhul Bayan
[3:27 AM, 11/2/2020] TECHPROADVICE: Musa heavily condemned the act of Shirk the Israelites were committing. We also learn that blessings were obtained from Jibreel, If this is the case then what will be the status and blessings of that soll in which Allah’s Prophets (Alayhis Salam Ajmaeen) and his Awliyah (May Allah be pleased with them all) are buried in ? Samiri saw the benefits / barakah in Jibreel ‘s l dust. So why is it that some so-called Muslims today say that Allah’s’ Prophets can’t do anything for us? Does that mean that Samiri had more Iman (faith) than today’s so-called Muslims?
