The fault starts from the outskirts of Mount Taurus, stretches to the southern shores of the Lake of Lut and proceeds over the Arabian desert to the Gulf of Aqaba and continues across the Red Sea, ending up in Africa. Along the length of it, strong volcanic activities are observed. Black basalt and lava exist in the Galilee Mountains in Israel, high plain regions of Jordan, the Gulf of Aqaba and other areas nearby.

The borders of Ancient Egypt during its most brilliant period. The country which grew around the River Nile succeeded in establishing an extremely powerful civilisation despite being surrounded by deserts and other natural impediments. It is the bountiful supply of water continuously provided by the River Nile, that underlie this fact. The systematically organised army, which was built up during a period of development lasting for centuries, allowed for the enlargement of the country so that it reached the borders of the states of Hittites and Mitanni.

The above migration map is prepared on the supposition that the point where Musa crossed the sea is on the Mediterranean coast.


 
In the map above, the points where Musa is likely to have passed are specified. As seen, the 1st and 2nd possible crossing points are on the Red Sea, and the 3rd point is on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt.



The picture on the left  is of the mummy of the Pharaoh, Ramses II which was taken from his tomb. Most historical sources conclude that this Pharaoh is the Fir’awn mentioned in the Qur'an. Well, how could the mummy of the Fir’awn who drowned and died be found in a tomb? Most probably, after Fir’awn drowned in the sea, his corpse was washed ashore and it was carried to his tomb and laid there by the Egyptians who found it.
