At the end of Ayat 46 of Surat TaHa of the Holy Qur'an (20:46), Allah, Azza Wa Jallah, says:--
"I HEAR AND I SEE". With these Noble words, it is as if Allahu, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, is saying ' I hear what has occurred between you 2 [Prophets Musa and Haruna, peace be upon them] and pharaoh, therefore I will make you 2 understand how to debate with him.'
Thus no hidden thing is concealed from Allah Ta'ala, Blessed be Him the Lord of the worlds. This Ayat proves that deafness (samam) and blindness ('amaa) are both impossible to Him... He is the All-Hearing and All-Seeing.
The special qualities of the first Name: as-Samee'u is its effectiveness in the answering of supplications, for whoever recites it by saying: 'Yaa Samee'u on a Thursday after the forenoon prayer (ad-duhaa) 500 times will have his supplication answered. And the special qualities of the second Name: al-Baseeru is its effectiveness in bringing about success in one's affairs, for whoever recites it by saying: 'Ya Baseeru before the Friday Juma'a prayer 100 times, Allah will open for him his inner vision and make him successful in righteous words and actions.

[ Allah ] said, “Fear not. Indeed, I am with you both; I hear and I see.
- Allah tells Musa and Harun a.s. “Both of you don’t be afraid”
- this is a pattern that will follow on from here on in this surah – for many verbs that would normally demand and object, Allah doesn’t provide the object, it’s to leave it open-ended for purpose of reflection
- Allah just says “Don’t fear.” fear what? open-ended
- it’s equivalent to – You have nothing to worry about
- then Allah justifies the statement (that says a lot)
- “Here’s the reason why you shouldn’t be afraid”
- “Most definitely I(“have no doubt about the fact that I”) am with you two”
- earlier in Taha, Ayat 12 Allah says inni and in ayat 14, Allah says with more emphasis, Innanee
- so this is to strengthen the resolve of the addressee
- Allah is presenting a very powerful idea about dawah
- Prophet saw being told “no mater how alone you feel (it’s 6th year of prophethood, number still small, persecution and violence increasing day by day) you’re not alone.”
- we also need to realize that – we don’t need to live in a state of fear, we need to understand that Allah is with us and will take care of us
- this is a message for anyone that is being brought the message(and that can be us), that when someone brings you a message, don’t try to gauge the validity of that message based on what you (coming from a small, soft-spoken, humble human being for example) but understand that this person has Allah with them
- when you deal with a person who calls you to Allah, you’re dealing with Allah
- when muazhin calls azhan, who’s here in the masjid often times? No one, especially for fajr, zuhr
- one small single humble guy, maybe didn’t even turn out the microphone
- it doesn’t seen very impressive but who is he calling towards and representing
- the Prophet saw has the back of the muazhin bec the prophetic supplication “Allahumma rabba haazihi da3wati tammaaati …” [this is the best form of calling and preaching to Allah, this is powerful]
- don’t underestimate this,
- when we give our long drawn out speeches, shaytann is sitting next to everybody telling them “hey, check your phone, maybe there’s a Facebook emergency” “Hey look at that on the wall, what does his T shirt says today?”
- that’s the effect of our dawah
- when muazhin gives azhan shaytaan runs for his life as fast as he cans, so afraid that he ‘breaks his wudhu’ as he runs
- so Allah is telling Musa and Harun a.s. that they don’t need to worry about Firawn and that Allah is with them both
- when you are a da3ee you are representing Allah and when you are being given dawah too, respect and understand that the person giving dawah has Allah with them
- أَسْمَعُ وَأَرَىٰ – I am listening and I am watching and will continue to watch
- listening to what? – usually it’s followed by object, but here left open-ended
- listening to what you all are saying
- this message is meant to empower Musa and harun as. but also to hold them accountable
- do right by this message
- dont chicken out when speaking to Firawn and don’t go back and don’t lash out, be mindful, I’m listening to what you’re saying,
- at same time, Allah is also supporting them saying “I’m also listening to Firawn”
- same with the watching
- scholars point out :- why does Allah state listening first and then watching?
- being able to listen means you are closer than being able to see
- you can see someone from far away but you won’t necessarily hear them
