The Almighty God says in Surah Yasin of the Holy Quran:

And from the remote part of the city there came a man running, he said: O my people! follow the apostles; Follow him who does not ask you for reward, and they are the followers of the right course…

Holy Quran has very clearly and explicitly asked to obey and follow those who themselves are rightly guided. The Baha’is agree upon Holy Quran’s authenticity. They also believe that there has been no distortion in the texts of Holy Quran after the passing away of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Yet they claim that the Holy Quran – God’s Last Message to humankind, stands abolished after the arrival of Bahaullah and they instead pitch in Aqdas as the last divine communication.

The fact, however, is that some of the things written in the Holy Quran will never be abrogated, come what may. Like for example, God says in chapter of Hijr:

“Surely We have revealed the Reminder (Quran) and We will most surely be its guardian.”

Or for example in the chapter of Ahzab, God has clearly said: Certainly you have in the Apostle of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) the best of example for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much.

These are some of the facts which will never ever cease to exist no matter how much effort is put by the enemies to diminish the light of Quran.

A small example of calling the Baha’is bluff is the miraculous preservation of Pharoah’s dead body.

The dead body of Pharoah Ramese II, the Egyptian Pharaoh (king) is approximately to 3000 years old. The body of the Pharaoh was discovered in 1898 in the Red Sea at the place called Jabalian six years after Bahaullah’s was dead and gone.

The body of Ramese II is now display in the Royal Mummies Chamber of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. This dead body is amazingly preserved without any mummification; no inside organs have been removed.

Even the mummies in Egypt with so much of mummification process are not well preserved like the body of Firon. Pharoah’s body was inside the sea for more than 3000 years. The fish and other creatures in the sea could have easily devoured the flesh, but they didn’t.

So what is the secret of such good preservation of this body?  The answer is in the following verse of the Quran (10: 92) where God says

“Today We will preserve (save) your body so you can be a Sign for people who come after you. Surely many people are heedless of Our Signs.”

What does this mean? It clearly implies no Tom, Dick or Bahaullah cannot claim that Holy Quran stands abrogated as the signs mentioned in Holy Quran are still coming true.

For those historically inclined, Firon was the famous tyrant king of Egypt. He, incidentally like Bahaullah, had declared that he was God. He tortured the people who didn’t worship Him. God sent Prophet Moses (Messenger of God) to save the people from oppression and cruelty and to warn people to turn to the True Path (True God). Firon and his people thought that Prophet Musa’s aim is to seize power by changing the traditional religion of Egypt.

Firon attained a great benefit from the traditional religion of Egypt, If that religion were to change, Firon will lose all his power.

When Firon denied the existence of God, Allah sent down his wrath on those people yet he didn’t turn towards Allah and he never backed down from his claims of being god.

So Allah drowned him in the Red sea and preserved his body for over 3000 years without any mummification process.
