Sura Al-A'raf from 121 to 130

121. They said: « We believe in the Lord of the ‘Âlamîn ( mankind, jinn and all that exists ) .»
122. « The Lord of Mûsâ ( Moses ) and Hârûn ( Aaron ) . »
123. Fir‘aun ( Pharaoh ) said: « You have believed in him [ Mûsâ ( Moses ) ] before I give you permission. Surely, this is a plot which you have plotted in the city to drive out its people, but you shall come to know.»
124. « Surely, I will cut off your hands and your feet from opposite sides, then I will crucify you all. »
125. They said: « Verily, we are returning to our Lord.»
126. « And you take vengeance on us only because we believed in the Ayât ( proofs, evidence, lessons, signs, etc. ) of our Lord when they reached us! Our Lord! pour out on us patience, and cause us to die as Muslims. »
127. The chiefs of Fir‘aun’s ( Pharaoh ) people said: « Will you leave Mûsâ ( Moses ) and his people to spread mischief in the land, and to abandon you and your gods? » He said: « We will kill their sons, and let live their women, and we have indeed irresistible power over them. »
128. Mûsâ ( Moses ) said to his people: « Seek help in Allâh and be patient. Verily, the earth is Allâh’s. He gives it as a heritage to whom He wills of His slaves; and the ( blessed ) end is for the Muttaqûn ( the pious - see V.2:2 ) . »
129. They said: « We ( Children of Israel ) had suffered troubles before you came to us, and since you have come to us. » He said: « It may be that your Lord will destroy your enemy and make you successors on the earth, so that He may see how you act? »
130. And indeed We punished the people of Fir‘aun ( Pharaoh ) with years of drought and shortness of fruits ( crops ) , that they might remember ( take heed ) .
