One of the important persons in the story and mission of Prophet Musa is his brother, Prophet Harun. The two Prophets (peace be upon them) worked as a great team.
In the Quran, we see the great prophet of Allah, Musa (peace be upon him), recognize the talent of his brother Harun: He speaks better than I do, ya Allah. Send him with me. Make him a partner in my mission.
The lesson that we take is that, it is very important for anybody who is working for the deen, anyone who is striving to make the world a better place, to understand, identify, and recognize the talents that others have.
You cannot be too arrogant to admit that somebody else is good at something that you are not good at.
When you find people who have talents and who have abilities, and who can contribute something valuable, identify it, admit it, recognize it, praise them for it, recruit them based on it.
We have to understand that at the end of the day, we are not in competition with each other.
We are all on the same team: the team of Islam; the team of Allah; the team of the Messenger of Allah; the team of the Quran; the team of the sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).
So, we are all on team Islam; we don’t have any of these petty conflicts and beef, and arrogance and conceit and insecurities.
We don’t play these silly games. Rather, we embrace each other’s talents and abilities.
We facilitate people to be able to contribute and really be able to take the mission further through their talents and abilities.
