The Earth is dotted with ancient ruins. Huge megalithic stone structures, planned cities, architecture aligned with astronomical events, roads and canals, and other artefacts, all bear testimony to the Quran asking us to take heed from these ruins. They must have been mighty civilisations, with advanced technologies, to have been able to build such structures. Though much remains to be discovered and dated, for reliable inferences to be made about these ruins, let alone tally which ruin matches with which ancient civilisation mentioned in the scriptures, yet it is wondrous to imagine how magnificent the ruins of today may have been at the peak of their glory!
An interesting observation, and a possible link between the ancient civilisation destroyed by the great Biblical Flood and the Egyptian civilisation, has been made by John Anthony West, in his book: Serpent in the Sky, (based upon the work of Schwaller de Lubicz):
[Al-Quran 53:50-52, Translator: Shakir] And that He did destroy the Ad of old And Samood, so He spared not And the people of Nuh before; surely they were most unjust and inordinate;
Iblis (Satan) is the sworn enemy of the progeny of Adam. Iblis and his progeny are relentlessly trying to destroy the progeny of Adam. He tempted and misled Adam by promising him Immortality and A Kingdom that Never Decays. Time and again, Satan has caused many people to lead themselves into ruin by Wronging their Nafs. Thus, there are important reminders and vital lessons for us in our World History and Future Implications, especially as narrated in the scriptures:
[Al-Quran 40:35-37, Translator: Shakir] Those who dispute concerning the communications of Allah without any authority that He has given them; greatly hated is it by Allah and by-those who believe. Thus does Allah set a seal over the heart of every proud, haughty one. And Firon said: O Haman! build for me a tower that I may attain the means of access, The means of access to the heavens, then reach the god of Musa, and I surely think him to be a liar. And thus the evil of his deed was made fairseeming to Firon, and he was turned away from the way; and the struggle of Firon was not (to end) in aught but destruction.
Pharaoh (Firon), it seems, commissioned the building of a mighty spacecraft. As listed below, there are indications of the existence of flying machines in ancient history.
[Al-Quran 55:33, Translator: Shakir] O assembly (of) the jinn and the men! If you are able to pass beyond [of] (the) regions (of) the heavens and the earth, then pass. Not you (can) pass except by authority.
