The Prophet Moses (pbuh) Demolished the Idol of His Time
Acording to the superstitious beliefs of the ancient Egyptians, "Snakes, frogs, earthworms and mice were made up of the mud of the Nile." That is to say, one of the main claims of Darwinism, which is, the fallacy that "living beings came into being by chance" was also a widespread belief in ancient Egypt. Consequently when the Prophet Moses (pbuh) started to communicate the message, with the miracles Allah granted to him, he first tended to remove these superstitious beliefs of Egyptians. He eradicated the evolutionist conceptions. When the Prophet Moses (pbuh) went to communicate Allah's message to Pharaoh, similar to contemporary Darwinists' questions and line of thought, Pharaoh also asked him, "What about the previous generations? "(Surat al-Anbiya, 51) The Prophet Moses (pbuh), on the other hand, responded by Allah's inspiration and said: "Knowledge of them is with my Lord in a Book. My Lord does not misplace nor does He forget.' (Surat al-Anbiya, 52) and explained Creation providing its evidences.
In the Qur'an Allah relates that when the Prophet Moses (pbuh) threw his sceptor, it turned into an alive snake. When the Prophet Moses (pbuh) threw his sceptor, a non-living branch turned into a living snake and when he took it into his hand, it turned again into a non-living branch and finally when he threw it once again, it once again became alive. That is to say, a non-living being first becomes alive, then it dies and then it revives once again. With this miracle, Allah shows constant Creation to human beings. Allah tells in the related verses:
... threw it down and suddenly, IT WAS A SLITHERING SNAKE. He said, "Take hold of it and have no fear. We will return it to its original form. (Surah Ta-Ha, 20-21)
"Throw down what is in your right hand. IT WILL SWALLOW UP THEIR HANDIWORK. Their handiwork is just a magician's trick. Magicians do not prosper wherever they go.' (Surah Ta-Ha, 69)
"Throw down your staff." Then WHEN HE SAW IT SLITHERING LIKE A SNAKE he turned and fled and did not turn back again. "Have no fear, Moses. In my Presence the Messengers have no fear." (Surat an-Naml, 10)
When the Prophet Moses (pbuh) threw his sceptor, by Allah's blessing, a non-living piece of wood turned into an utterly living being with a digestive system which swallows what other people throw and moves rapidly. This way, Allah shows people an example of how He created life from non-existence. A non-living being revives, solely by Allah's will, that is to say, by Allah's command of "Be".
This miracle Allah granted to the Prophet Moses (pbuh) ruined ancient Egyptians' superstitious beliefs in an instant and even people who were against the Prophet Moses (pbuh) grasped the truth at that moment, left their superstitious beliefs behind and had faith in Allah.
