Collection: Pharaoh's body

The Quran describes Pharaoh as a tyrant who declared himself to be a god and was extremely arrogant. He subjugated the people of Israel and inflicted terrible suffering upon them.

"Indeed, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, oppressing a sector among them..." (Quran 28:4)

Despite witnessing the signs, Pharaoh refused to heed Moses' message. Consequently, Egypt was struck by various plagues, including floods, locusts, lice, frogs, and blood, as signs from God, yet Pharaoh's heart remained hardened.


"And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in oppression and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, 'I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims.'" (Quran 10:90)

˹He was told,˺ “Now ˹you believe˺? But you always disobeyed and were one of the corruptors.  (Quran 10:91)

Indeed, the story of Pharaoh's serves as a profound sign from Allah. In the Quran, Surah Yunus (10:92), Allah declares:

So, today, We will preserve your body, so that you may become a sign for those after you. And many of the people are heedless of Our signs.”


The interesting point here is that Pharaoh's body is still well-preserved, just as the Quran said it would be. This brings up a thought-provoking question: If Pharaoh's body had disappeared, despite the Quran saying it would be kept, wouldn't that mean the Quran was wrong? Yes, it would. But as things are, the Quran's words hold true because Pharaoh's body is still here for us to see.
