When Musa, upon whom be peace, met with Pharaoh’s sorcerers, 72 in number, he had them cast their ropes down first. Musa, upon whom be peace, knew they were dealing with magic, yet he had them go first. A wisdom here is that had he gone first, and the snake appeared, it would have merely scared everyone but they wouldn’t have seen the ropes and staffs of the magicians for what they are. With them going ahead of him their own falsehood was a means to reveal the truth for all to see. Thus, have a good opinion of Allah for at times you will have to see the sorcerers cast their ropes first so that you can see God is Greater in the end.
Have a good opinion of Allah.
