In the Quran, God explains what this means: “Suckle him, and when you are afraid for him, cast him into the sea,” We told Moses’ mother. Do not be alarmed or saddened; We will bring him back to you and make him a messenger. (28:7) Consider what she is being asked to do for a moment.

Imagine dropping your newborn into the water. But imagine being handed something else that is priceless. Imagine receiving the God’s promise. It is assured to Moses’ mother that she should not be afraid or sad because her Lord will defend her son and bring him back to her.

(28:8-9) Her Faith in God God questioned a woman to put her trust in Him at a time when things appeared to be insurmountable. God gave her His safety in return for her confidence. God never breaks His promises. And He fulfilled His promise to her. In fact, as a demonstration of His power, God made that protection available to the very enemy who was dreaded.

In the Quran, God says regarding Prophet Moses: When We told your mother, ” Put him in the chest and hurl it into the sea; the sea will wash him up on the strand, where an adversary of mine and his will pick him up.” (20:38-9) This is a wonderful indication and lesson. God demonstrated to her and all others that even if one’s neck is beneath a killer’s knife, if God is protecting you, that killer cannot hurt you.
