WAEC 2022 - CRK ANSWER
After the Israelites had left the land of Egypt, Pharaoh regretted his action to have allowed them to leave. He re-grouped his soldiers to pursue the Israelites. The Isrealites encamped at Pihahiroth where they were overtaken by the Egyptian soldiers who rode on horses and chariots. When the Israelites saw them, they were afraid and they cried to the Lord for their safety. They said that it would have been better for them to die in the land of Egypt than to die in the wilderness.
Moses strengthened their faith by telling them not to entertain any fear, but to stand firm, for the Lord was with them and would fight for them. " The Egyptians you see today will not be seen again tomorrow", Moses assured his people. He cried to the Lord and he was told to stretch his rod over the sea. The Lord blocked the view and slowed down the movement of the Egyptians by the pillar of cloud which led the Israelites behind them. Moses did as the Lord had commanded him. He stretched his rod over the sea.
A great wind drove back the waters. The people of Israel crossed the sea on dry land. The Egyptians gave the Israelites a hot chase, but the wheel of their chariots could not move. Moses immediately followed the order of God and stretched his rod over the sea and the water returned. The Egyptian soldiers, their horses and chariots, who were already in the middle of the sea were all drowned and they perished. This is how God was victorious over Pharaoh and his army.

Hophni and Phinehas were the sons of Eli who was the priest of God at Shiloh. They were also priests of the Lord.
The Bible describes the children of Eli as worthless men who had no regard for the Lord. They committed several sins against the Lord. They disregarded the custom regarding sacrifice to the Lord and instead of taking their share, they took what the three-pronged fork could collect from the pot. Contrary to the custom, they demanded, with force, raw meat from those offering sacrifice, before the fat was burned. They lay with women who served at the entrance of the gate.
Though Eli warned his children about the above evils, he did not take strict measures to stop the children from the evil acts. As a result of his weak corrective measures, the children did not listen to him, but continued in their evil ways. The attitude of the children towards the Lord resulted in a man of God coming to Eli to prophesy doom for his house, stating that the priesthood would be cut off from Eli's house and the family destroyed to the extent that no old man would exist in it for ever and any survivor of this disaster would beg bread from the new and faithful priests to be raised by God. As a sign for the fulfilment of the prophesy, the sons of Eli would die on the same day.

On the day of Pentecost, the disciples were together in one place. Suddenly, a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and filled the house where they were sitting. Immediately, there appeared to them tongues as of fire, resting on each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
The sound of the wind attracted a great multitude, including the Jews and devout men from different nations, who were then dwelling in Jerusalem. These people were amazed at what they saw, especially the foreigners who heard the disciples speaking in their own local languages. Strangely enough, the disciples were all Galileans. The people wondered, saying, 'Are not all these who are speaking Galileans?' And how is it that we hear each of us in his own native language?' They wondered at the situation, asking,'What does this mean?; But others who were there mocked them, accusing them of being drunk. This event shows the fulfillment of Joel's prophecy.

Qadar is one of the aspects of aqidah. Muslims believe that the divine destiny is when God wrote down in the Preserved Tablet (al-lawh al-mahfooz [ar]) all that has happened and will happen, which will come to pass as written. When referring to the future, Muslims frequently qualify any predictions of what will come to pass with the phrase Insha'Allah, Arabic for "if God willed " The phrase recognizes that human knowledge of the future is limited, and that all that may or may not come to pass is under the control and knowledge of God.
However, people are not predestined by Allah to enter Hell. Rather, people will only bear their own sins that they themselves committed with free will and no one will be responsible for another person's deeds. The Quran holds that no man will be treated unjustly and everything will be judged by Allah.

Arrahman i rraheem. Maliki yaum i eddeen. Iyyaka nabudu wa iyyaka nasta een. Ihdinas sirata almustaqeem. Siratal lazhina anamta alaihim, ghairil maghdubi alaihim, wa la adhdhaal leen.").
