Namun jaulah hari ini adalah untuk menuju ke Ra’su Bar, daerah Damietta, Egypt. Perjalanan Sungai Nil sepanjang 6695km berakhir disini, dijodohkan dengan Lautan Mediterranean. Sungai Nil yang tidak pernah berhenti mengalirkan airnya di hampir semua negara padang pasir. Sudan, Uganda, Ethiopia, Borondy dan banyak lagi. Nikmat Allah yang tidak pernah berhenti mengalir sebagaimana kasih Nya kepada kita yang tidak pernah berhenti memberikan kita peluang demi peluang.
“Dan Dialah yang membiarkan dua laut mengalir, yang satu tawar lagi segar yang lainnya masin lagi pahit. Dan Dia jadikan antara keduanya dinding dan batas yang menghalangi” (Al Furqan : 53)
“Dia memberikan dua lautan mengalir yang keduanya kemudian bertemu. Antara keduanya ada batas yang tidak dilampaui oleh masing-masing. Maka nikmat Tuhan manakah yang kamu dustakan?” Ar Rahman (19-21)
Dikatakan juga tempat ini merupakan tempat pertemuan Nabi ALLAH, Musa dan Khidir. Pendapat yang lebih kukuh mengatakan bahawa pertemuan mereka adalah di pertemuan Teluk Aqabah dan Teluk Suez. Sejauh mana kebenarannya? Wallhualam.
Kisah Nabi Musa dan Nabi Khidir Dikatakan pada suatu hari, Musa berdiri di khalayak Bani Israil lalu beliau ditanya, “Siapakah orang yang paling berilmu?” Jawab Nabi Musa, “Aku” Lalu ALLAH menegur Nabi Musa dengan firman-Nya, kerana sesungguhnya terdapat hamba ALLAH yang jauh lebih berilmu daripadanya. ALLAH menyampaikan kepada Musa bahawa baginda akan berjumpa dengan hamba itu di pertemuan antara dua laut, dimana ikan yang dibawa Nabi Musa akan hilang.
Kisah perjalanan Nabi Musa mencari hamba ini direkodkan di dalam Al-Quran, ( Al-Kahfi, 18:60-82)
“Behold, Moses said to his attendant, “ I will not give up until I reach the junction of the two seas or until I spend years in travel”. But when they reached the junction, they forgot (about) their Fish, which took its course through the sea (straight) as in a tunnel.
When they had passed on (some distance), Moses said to his attendant : “Bring us our early meal; truly we have suffered much fatigue at this (stage of) our journey.” He replied “ Sawest thou (what happened) when we betook ourselves to the rock? I did indeed forget about the Fish: none but Satan made me to forget to tell (you) about it: it took its course through the sea in a marvelous ways!”. Moses said : “That was what we were seeking after”.
So they went back on footsteps, following (the path they had come) So they founded one of Our servants, on whom We had bestowed Mercy from Ourselves and whom We had taught knowledge from Our own Presence.
Moses said to him: “ I follow thee, on the footing that thou teach me something of the (higher) Truth which thou hast been thaught?” ( The other) said: “Verily thou will not be able to have patience with me! And how canst thou have patience about things about which thy understanding is not complete? Moses said : “Thou wilt find me, if God so will, (truly) patient: nor shall I disobey thee in aught.” The other said : “If then thou would follow me, ask me no questions about anything until I myself speak to thee concerning about it”.
So they both proceeded: until when they were in the boat, he scuttled it. Said Moses “Hast thou scuttled it in order to drown those in it? Truly a strange thing hast thou done!”He answered: “Did I not tell thee that thou canst have no patience with me?” Moses said: “Rebuke me not forgetting, not grieve me by raising difficulties in my case”. Then they proceed : until, when they meet a young man, he slew him. Moses said: Hast thou slain an innocent person who had slain none? Truly a foul (unheard of) thing hast thou done!” He answered : “Did I not tell thee that thou cants have no patience with me?” (Moses) said: “If ever I ask thee about anything after this, keep me not in the company” then wouldst thou have received (full) excuse from my side”.
Then they proceeded, until when they came to the inhabitants of a town, they asked them for food, but they refused them hospitality. They found there a wall on the point of falling down, but he set it up straight. (Moses) said : If thou hadst wished, surely thou couldst have exacted some recompense for it!
He answered : “This is the parting between me and thee: now I will tell thee the interpretation of (those things) over which thou wast unable to hold patience. “As for the boat, it belonged to certain men in dire want: they plied on the water: I but wished to render it unerseviceable, for there was after them a certain king who seized on every boat by force.
As for the youth, his parents were people of Faith, and we feared that he would grieve them by obstinate rebellion and ingratitude (to God and man). So we desired that their Lord would give them in exchange (a son) better in purity (of conduct) and closer in affection.
As for the wall, it belonged to two youths, orphans, in the Town; there was beneath it, a buried treasure, to which they were entitled: their father had been a righteous man, so thy Lord desired that they should attain their age of full strength and get out their treasure - a mercy (and favour) from thy Lord.
I did it not of my own accord. Such is the interpretation of (those things) over which thou wast unable to hold patience”. ( Al-Kahf, 18:60-82)
