PHARAOH REMESSES

Whenever we come across the word MUMMY, whole picture of Egypt comes in our minds with one of the Seven Wonders of the World, PYRAMIDS. These ancient people especially the ruling class used to mummify their dead bodies and bury them in the apartments built in pyramids. My point here is to present the most important of all these mummies which is the mummy of Pharaoh Remesses, the most important personality among religious as well as archeological folks. He was the one who acted as a villain in the true story of Prophet Mosses (peace be upon him). For ancient Egyptians, he was the most disreputable of Pharaoh Kings and for archeologists, it’s astonishing to find his dead body under water, well preserved. There is only one religious scripture the world over, Holy Qur’an, which mentions the death of Pharaoh Remesses in the water and the discovery of his dead body near the end of time from the same ocean for showing the people of understanding this great sign of ALLAH. Following is the story of the one who got this as the sign and became a true believer. In 1981, France requested Egypt for the Pharaoh’s mummy which was amazingly discovered from water, well preserved, in order to carry out some laboratory and archeological assessments. After the spectacular welcome ceremony of the mummy in France by the French President himself, it was shifted to the Archeology Center of France where the above mentioned examinations were performed by the well known French Archeological and anatomical scientists to find out something more about this special and amazing discovery. Professor Maurice, head of these specially appointed group of scientists, was mainly concerned with how did the Pharaoh die??? And how could this body possibly be safer than any other mummy despite being taken out of the water up until this time??? While writing the final report, somebody informed Professor Maurice that Muslims claim to know about the death and discovery of Pharaoh. He was informed that Qur’an mentions the story of Pharaoh’s drowning and challenged his body to be preserved under water as a sign to mankind. The professor became astonished and started thinking about how a 1400 years old book claims to describe about such a thing which have been recently discovered.

After the proper scientific investigation of the mummy, it was arranged to return it to Egypt but Professor Maurice was so struck with the information which Muslims have about the mummy that he could not resist to talk to Muslim scientists. So one of the anatomy Muslim scientists just opened up the Qur’an and read the following verse to Professor. Qur’an Ch10:V92-“This day shall We save you in your body, that you may be a sign to those who come after you! But verily, many among mankind are neglectful of Our sings” The Professor was so struck when he read that and immediately stood in front of the crowd and declared: “I believe in Islam and I believe in Qur’an” The Professor further dedicated 10 years comparing scientific discoveries and Qur’an and finally come up with the following conclusion. Qur’an Ch 41:V42-“No falsehood can approach it (this book) from before or behind it: it is sent down by One Full of Wisdom, worthy of all praise” At last, he wrote a book that shook all Europe, especially the scientists by the name of Qur’an, Torah, Bible and Science which deals with the study of holy books in the light of modern science. All of it’s copies were sold out immediately.
