Between Musa and the Magicians
Allah mentioned the story of the magicians and Musa in Surah Al-A`raf (there is a commentary on it in that Surah), this Surah, Surah Ta Ha, and in Surah Ash-Shu`ara'.
Fir`awn, may Allah's curse be upon him, wanted to deceive the people and impress them with the tricks of the magicians in direct opposition to the plain truth that Musa brought. The result was the exact opposite and he therefore didn't attain his goal. The signs of the Lord prevailed in that public festival.
وَأُلْقِىَ السَّحَرَةُ سَـجِدِينَ
قَالُواْ ءَامَنَّا بِرَبِّ الْعَـلَمِينَ
رَبِّ مُوسَى وَهَـرُونَ
And the sorcerers fell down prostrate. They said;"We believe in the Lord of all that exists -- the Lord of Musa and Harun." (7;120-122)
Fir`awn thought that he would achieve victory through the magicians over the Messenger sent by Allah, the All-Knower of all hidden things. But he failed, lost Paradise and was deserving of the Hellfire.
