Preservation Of Pharaoh Body
- The preservation of Pharaoh’s body is mentioned in the Quran, the central religious text of Islam, as a sign of God’s power and a lesson for future generations. According to the Quran, Pharaoh’s body was preserved as a warning to those who opposed God and His prophets, the Pharaoh referred to in the Quran is Ramses II, who ruled Egypt during the 13th century BCE and was contemporary with Moses. This identification is based on the historical and archaeological evidence that suggests that Ramses II was the pharaoh in power during the time when the Israelites were enslaved in Egypt and Moses led them to freedom.
Today We will preserve your body, so that you become a sign for those after you. But most people are heedless of Our signs.
Defensive Equipment of the Egyptian Army, Because of the climate, very little armor was ever worn in Africa. In Egypt’s Old and Middle Kingdom, Egyptian soldiers never wore armor. In the Old Kingdom they are usually depicted wearing only a belt and a small triangular loincloth… Sometimes broad leather bands covered part of the torso of charioteers, but generally soldiers are depicted without any body protection. Again the pharaohs were, not surprisingly, the exception.
