The name of Chapter 28 of the Qur'an is the “The Narration”, and the story of the Musa (Moses) is described in first 45 verses of the chapter. From here we begin to understand the power and piety of the Musa mother, which comes from her trust in God. Her son finally returned to her side. Some scholars believe that Musa (Moses) and his mother returned to the middle of the descendants of Israel. There are also some scholars, including Ibn Kathir, who believe that she also lives in the palace, where she breastfeeds for Musa (Moses). Musa grew up in the palace and his mother had the power to visit him at any time.

The Qur'an and the authentic Hadith did not describe the situation of the Musa (Moses) during this time. But we can say that during this time, Musa (Moses) grew up. He may already know his true identity, but distinguish himself from the descendants of Israel. Mu Sheng's several Hadiths describe Musa's appearance. He is long, physically fit, dark-skinned, curly-haired, and strong.

 "When he is strong and intellectually sound, I reward him with wisdom and knowledge. I want to reward good people like this." (Quran 28:14)

We will find in Musa's experience that he is a straightforward person. He insisted on expounding his own ideas and endorsing the poor. When he witnesses oppression or rudeness, he always comes forward and asks for help.

Ibn Kathir records that one day Musa was walking on the street, and he happened to meet two people fighting. One is a Jew (Israelite) and the other is a Coptic (Egyptian). The Jew knew Musa (Moses) and he called Musa (Moses) to help him fight the Egyptian. Musa (Moses) stepped forward and stopped the fight. He waved his fist and punched the Egyptian in a boxing. Egyptian fell to the ground and died. Faced with this, Musa (Moses) controlled the sorrow. He thought that his strength was limited, but he could not kill the Egyptians with a punch.

"When the people in the city were negligent, he came into the city and found two people fighting in the city. This is his clan, One is a Jew (Israelite) and the other is a Coptic (Egyptian) and Israelite asked him to help. His enemy, Musa, killed the enemy with a punch. He said: 'This is because of the temptation of the devil, the devil is indeed a charming enemy.' He said: 'My Lord! I have wronged myself,. Please forgive me. 'Allah forgives him. He is indeed the most timid. It is indeed merciful. He said, 'My Lord! I ask you to bless me by the grace you have given me. I will never be an assistant to the perpetrators."" (Quran 28:15-17)

Or because the streets are empty or people are reluctant to get involved in serious conflicts, the authorities have not realized that Musa (Moses) is involved in a chaotic conflict. However, the next day, Musa (Moses) saw that the Jew who was in conflict with the man was fighting with a man yesterday. He suspected that the Jew was a deliberate troublemaker and went forward to warn the Jews not to make trouble.

The Israelites saw Musa striding close to him, apparently very scared. He shouted: "Like killing the victim yesterday, do you want to kill me?" The opponent of this man was a Coptic, heard his scream and report Musa (Moses) to the government. Later that day, a person told him that the government wanted to arrest him and might sentence him to death because he killed a Coptic yesterday.

"The next morning, he was battling in the city. The man who asked for help from him suddenly shouted for help. Musa said to him: 'You are obviously a misleader.' When he wants to hit him When the two enemies, the person who asked for help said: 'Musa! Do you want to kill me like as you killed a man yesterday? You just want to be a tyrant in this city, but you don't want to be a mediator.' There is a person from the city. Very far away to say: 'Musa! The servants are indeed negotiating to kill you, so go and escape out of this city. I am true to you.' He escaped from the city, he said: ' My Lord! Let me be free from the unrighteous people.'" (Quran 28:18-21)

Musa immediately left the city where he lived. He quickly returned home, changed his clothes, brought some food, and left quickly. He crossed the desert and walked to the place of Midian, which is located between Syria and Egypt. He is full of fear, afraid to return to Pharaoh, will be pursued. He kept walking in the desert, his feet and legs were heavy like lead, but he had to keep going. In the rough desert, the shoes were worn, and the hot sand burned the soles of the feet. Musa was hungry and thirsty, bleeding in his mouth, and he forced himself to keep going. Some historians say that he walked for seven days and went to a place where he could drink water. He fell down in the shade of the trees.

Walking in the hot desert of Egypt, his life should have ended. The adventure crossed the very unfriendly zone, and he couldn’t eat it. This trip is destined to fail. However, the story of the Musa reveals this truth: if a believer obeys the will of God, Allah will provide him with a supply he can't imagine. Allah will help the weak with strength to successfully reward those who fail.

Musa safely reached an oasis of desert. The scent of water and the shadow of the green trees are simply heaven for him. However, Musa is not alone in the new place, and the drinking water is crowded with people who drink water for livestock.
