The Prophet’s Knowledge about Pharaoh’s Fate

The Prophet’s Knowledge about Pharaoh’s Fate
Allah Almighty informed us about the events of the past and future with the Quran and made this news a miracle of the Quran.

{And [recall] when We parted the sea for you and saved you and drowned the people of Pharaoh while you were looking on.} (Quran 2: 50)

And when the two bodies saw each other, the people of Moses said:

{And when the two companies saw one another, the companions of Moses said, “Indeed, we are to be overtaken!” [Moses] said, “No! Indeed, with me is my Lord; He will guide me.” Then We inspired to Moses, “Strike with your staff the sea,” and it parted, and each portion was like a great towering mountain. And We advanced thereto the pursuers. And We saved Moses and those with him, all together. Then We drowned the others.} (Quran 26: 61-66)

The glorious Quran informs about the end of Pharaoh with the verses given above and states that the Pharaoh and his army were drowned in the sea.

Now let us pay attention to the following verse of the Quran. Verse 29:48 states the following:

{And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt.} (29:48)

According to the explicit declaration of this verse, Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) did not know how to read and write. Neither did he write a letter nor did he read a letter. While this is the fact, then, how did he inform about the Pharaoh who had lived ages ago before him and his drowning in the sea?

Let us put the answer of how did he inform us off and search the answer to the following question: Did Pharaoh really die by being drowned in sea? Has this news of the Quran about the end of Pharaoh been approved?

Now, we want to read the related Egyptian papyrus 6, which dates to the time of the Pharaoh in the British Museum England:

“From Amenamoni, head of the protective books of the white room of the palace, to the scribe Penterhor:

When this letter reaches you and has been read point by point, surrender your heart to the sharpest pain, like a leaf before the storm, when you learn of the sorrowful disaster of the drowning in the whirlpool. Calamity struck him suddenly and inescapably. The sleep in the waters has made something helpless out of something great. Depict the destruction of the lords, the lord of the tribes, the king of the east and the west. What news can compare to the news I have sent you?”

Here in this scripture, there is a clear explanation about the Pharaoh that he was drowned in the sea. That is, the 6th Egyptian papyrus approves the news of the Quran.  The news of the Quran has been approved by historical scriptures.

Now let us look at our first question: How could a person who did not write or read a letter know and learn the disastrous end of a person who had lived ages before him? If we do not accept the Quran as a word of Allah, then how can we answer this question? Otherwise, do we consider this a coincidence? No, this cannot be a coincidence. This question must have an answer…

This question has only one answer and it is as follows: This book was sent by Glorious Allah, who knows all times from past to future. Allah Almighty informed us about the events of the past and future with the Quran and made this news a miracle of the Quran.

Yes, how could the people who deny the Quran to be a word of God explain the miraculous news of the Quran that informs us about the drowning of the Pharaoh in the sea and its other news about the unseen?

Not accepting this book as a word of God means ignoring the truth and denying the reality. The Quran is a book and word of Allah with the correctness of its news about the unseen.
