Interesting discovery today:

In the Qur’an Egypt and its ruler are mentioned in two different historical periods. The story of Yusuf (as) and the story of Musa (as) and the Pharaoh.

Interestingly enough though, in the story of Yūsuf, the ruler of Egypt is not called a––
-Pharaoh, but a “King”

Yet in the story of Musa (as) the ruler of Egypt is referred to as Pharaoh. Why does the Qur’an make the distinction?

Historians in the late 19th and early 20th century, through the discovery of hieroglyphs and records of other kingdoms, historians––
–concluded that the term “PHARAOH” was not used in early Egyptian kingdoms, but was adopted around the nineteenth kingdom, or the year 1200BC. Before that, he was simply referred to as “KING”

The events of Yūsuf (as) predate those of Musa (as) and happened pre-adoption of—
—the term “PHARAOH”.

Funny how an illiterate desert man somehow managed to make this very specific historical difference, when it itself was not known until much later to the rest of the world. Peace be with you all.
