Today we reviewed the story of when Musa (a) heard the voice of Allah (s) from an acacia bush that appeared to burn but was still green. My son wanted to know why the fire did not burn the bush and I told him that this fire was a diffetent kind of fire.
We learned that Musa (a) was afraid of the voice at first and the Angels had to hold him up. My son wanted to know why Musa (a) was scared. I said I wasn’t sure but that Musa (a) probably had not heard a plant talk before and when it seemed like the voice was coming from all directions he was probably confused about where the voice was coming from.
