What is the technique of preserving bodies in ancient Egypt?
In a broader sense, mummification is a technical preservation of body and a liturgy performed with the mummification priest contest and reader priests. L’Ancient Egypt also practiced animal mummification, the more often domestic (cats) but sometimes wild.
For a body to become mummy naturally, we must prevent its decomposition. How ? By inhibiting bacterial and chemical activity. For example, in a hot and dry atmosphere, the conditions are favorable: the tissues dehydrate quickly, which prevents mold and the action of bacteria.
(Koran, 10: 91-92) Information concerning the body of the Pharaoh which will take on its full meaning after its discovery in 1898 by Loret Thebes. There is a high probability that Pharaoh’s body floated to shore after being drowned, it will be found by the Egyptians, mummified and then transported to a burial chamber.
*Why is the pharaoh’s body so preserved? while he died more than 3000 years ago in the era of Prohpeht Moses (PBUH)?* *In the Quran ′′ chapter 10 (Younus) V-90 to 92 ′′ Allah says ′′ Today , we will preserve your body (Pharaoh) so that you can be a sign for the people who come after you.
Thus, the corpse of the Pharaoh of Moses, still uncovered, constitutes a concrete testimony in the form of an embalmed body having known Moses (Peace be upon him), denied his requests and having chased him to his flight then died during this pursuit. Allah has preserved his corpse from total injury so that it becomes a sign for the people,…
His arrogant and insulting attitude towards the Prophet Moses (blessings and salvation be upon him) until the moment of his death by drowning, Allah subhana wa ta’ala describes it to us in many verses. Go to Pharaoh: he really rebelled. Then, talk to him kindly. Maybe he will remember or [Me craindra-t-il ]?
