Pharao The god
« on: May 27, 2012, 01:39:55 PM »
salam
 when we read 28.38, we see that Pharaoh says that moses should have no other god beside himself . We know that the Egyptians worshiped several gods. Can this be so mean that he meant it  he as the highest God?but  he said,  "a different God than me," does not imply any other God.?thanks for clarification. Peace

Salamun Alaikum Chadiga,

Please see verses 79:23-4, where the Quran tells us:

079:23-24
"Then he gathered (men) and called out. Then he said: I am your lord, the most high"

Regardless of what other Pharaoh's of Egypt may / may not have thought before him, this particular Pharaoh in opposition to Prophet Moses (pbuh) thought he was God most high! He may have called out on 'lesser Gods', but in this verse, it is clear he thought of himself as a Lord (Rab) 'al-ala' (The most high).

I hope that helps, God willing.

Regards,
Joseph.
