Schuaib the father in law of Musa?
« on: March 08, 2012, 09:08:06 PM »
salamu aleikum to all
My daughter is in the school in Qur'an by Surah al Quasas. she has test next week and showed me her preparations. There they learn that  Shu'ayb is the father in law of Moses. I always thought it was Yethro (AT)? I can not remember, so now quickly that Shu'ayb declared somewhere in the Koran as Musa's father in law?From where they get that ?Thanks for clarification. salaam

Salamun Alaikum.

The connection is merely a superficial one with no 'established' warrant from the Quran. The father in law of Prophet Moses is mentioned in the Quran but not by name. (28:25-28)

From a Biblical perspective, Jethro is indeed argued to be the father-in-law of Prophet Moses, a Kenite Shepherd in the land of Midian but there is contention with other passages such as Numbers 10:29 that posits 'Hobab' as Prophet Moses's father in-law as well. But this is a well known theological discussion and a matter really for Biblical theologians.

Regards,
Joseph.
