  Mosab Hassan Yousef’s non-fiction book, "Son of Hamas" charts the author’s upbringing in Ramallah in the Palestinian Territories, his secretly working for Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service, his conversion to Christianity and his move to the United States, where he had to fight his next battle: deportation due to his Hamas connection/5. ESTHER'S PROPHECY OF THE "10 SONS OF HAMAN" In the book of Esther, we find the story of Haman, a man who hated the Jews and tried to exterminate them. This hate arose because Mordecai, a Jew, would not pay homage or bow down to Haman, a high official in the Persian empire.   The book explores the deeper meanings concealed in the ten Hebrew names of the sons of Haman, the evil architect of the destruction of the Jewish Nation, from the Bible's Book of Esther. All ten men who served the corrupt Haman, who plotted to destroy the Jews, were killed and then hung upon the gallows by order of Queen : The Old Paths Publications. Adalia, Aridai, Aridatha, Arisai, Aspatha, Dalphon, Parmashta, Parshandatha, Poratha, and Vaizatha were sons of Haman.

Mordecai (or Mordechai, Hebrew: מָרְדְּכַי ‎, Modern: Mordeḵay, Tiberian: Mordǝḵay, IPA: [moʁdeˈχaj]) is one of the main personalities in the Book of Esther in the Hebrew is described as being the son of Jair, of the tribe of was promoted to Vizier after Haman was killed. The ten sons of Haman: I saw in Seder Olam (ch. 29): These are the ten who wrote a [false] accusation against Judea and Jerusalem, as it is written in the Book of Ezra (): “And in the reign of Ahasuerus, at the beginning of his reign, they wrote an accusation against the dwellers of Judea and Jerusalem.” Now what was the accusation?   Haman’s goal was the genocide of the Jews, becoming the opponent of Esther and her people in the book of Esther. Haman was an Agagite and the son of Hammedatha. Haman was likely a descendent of Agag, king of the Amalekites, long-time enemies of the Jewish people. III. (1) Haman the Agagite. —Nothing appears to be known of Haman save from this book. His name, as well as that of his father and his sons, is Persian; and it is thus difficult to see the meaning of the name Agagite. which has generally been assumed to imply descent from Agag, king of the Amalekites, with whom the name Agag may have been dynastic (Numbers ; 1Samuel ).

R. Mordechai Sasson, in his sefer דבר בעתו in the section called "רמזי מגלה", explains that Haman symbolizes the Yetzer Harah (evil inclination), and his ten sons allude to its ten bad character death, brought about by Mordechai and Esther, represents the nullification of such evil traits by being overpowered by the Yetzer Tov (good inclination). Haman's fate is an example of poetic justice and divine retribution. What Haman designed for evil God used for good in the lives of people who trusted in Him (Genesis ). The book of Esther several times points out that Haman was an Agagite—that is, he was a descendant of the Amalekite King Agag (Esther ; , 5; ).   Excerpt of a shiur given by Rav Eliezer Berland, shlita, on Shabbat, Parshat Pekudei, Now, we are going to give over a shiur on the 10 sons of Haman. Tens of the sons of Haman just ran to learn Torah in Bnei Brak, for their sons became Torah learners in Bnei Brak. T. An evil man with an evil plan! Esther In the twelfth year of King Xerxes, in the first month, the month of Nisan, they cast the pur (that is, the lot) in the presence of Haman to select a day and the lot fell on the twelfth month, the month of Adar.(8) Then Haman said to King Xerxes, "There is a certain people dispersed and scattered among the peoples in all the provinces of.
