PROPHET SHUAIB DUA IN QURAN – Our Lord, decide between us and our people in truth, and You are the best of those who give decision.

رَبَّنَا افْتَحْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ قَوْمِنَا بِالْحَقِّ وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ الْفَاتِحِينَ

Rabbana iftah baynana wabayna qawmina bilhaqqiwaanta khayru alfatiheen

Prophet Shuaib (as) tried to prevent corruption in Madyan and reform society so it could be equitable for all.

In Surah Al A’raf it summarizes his mission, “And to [the people of] Madyan [We sent] their brother Shu’ayb. He said, “O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. So fulfill the measure and weight and do not deprive people of their due and cause not corruption upon the earth after its reformation. That is better for you, if you should be believers.” (Surah A’raf ayat 85) DUA OF PROPHET IBRAHIM (AS) IN QURAN

The response…

A complete mockery of this message, “They said: “O Shu`ayb! Does your Salah command you that we give up what our fathers used to worship, or that we give up doing what we like with our property [referring to zakat, charity] Verily, you are the forbearer, right-minded!” (Surah Hud ayat 87)

If you present an opposing view that runs counter to a person’s most cherished belief, there is a high probability they will be offended. Many will not take it lightly, even if what you are saying is right.

It will still be taken as a direct attack on the identity they’ve formed and who they believe they are. This is the challenge. They will remain consistent with their belief and try to find confirming evidence as to why you are wrong. It’s very hard to change one’s opinion when presented with opposing evidence. This is why Firawn failed to see the truth that Musa (as) presented when casting his rod. He called it fake magic and escalated the situation further. Dua Before Entering The Toilet – Bathroom Dua

Insecurity in people can cause a situation to escalate as they become more and more agitated. Depending on the severity of the attack on their identity, they may even become hostile and threaten with violence.

Prophet Shuaib (as) saw the conflict arise in Madyan and drafted a treaty for peaceful coexistence, “and if there should be a group among you who has believed in that with which I have been sent and a group that has not believed, then be patient until Allah judges between us. And He is the best of judges.” (7:87)
