This story is from the time of Prophet Musa (as). He got lost in the desert with his family. As night approached it was getting cold. They needed a fire and Musa (as) saw one in the distance.
Musa (as) went and there He is called upon by Allah through the burning bush. The greatest honor one can receive is to communicate with Allah.
For Musa (as), there was no fancy ceremony, no media no cameras there was no family present to celebrate. He was in the darkness, cold and alone in the middle of the desert. What we are taught is that in our darkest moments in life Allah has His way of giving us blessings.
