Chapter 28 in the Quran is titled “The Narratives.” It addresses the competing narratives of Pharaoh and Prophet Musa (peace be upon him), and the structural racism against the Israelites in Pharaoh’s Egypt. It tells the story of Prophet Musa (pbuh) as a privileged Israelite in the House of Pharaoh and his subsequent struggle to understand his own spiritual path in a fight against systemic injustices. The chapter also gives voice to the women throughout Prophet Musa’s (pbuh) life who supported him and faced their own spiritual struggles. At a time when racism and misogyny are so engrained our society, this class aims to equip students with the spiritual language to address those ills and fight back against them.
