Where Prophet Muhammad (P) lived?

If you refute these historical theories (or stories) then give us a better theory.

Question is: Are you ready to see absurdity of current belief? And are you ready to explore the new evidences?

Just ponder over following verses and try to relate the geography to current belief. See what picture you get.

And then and there a man came running from the other side of the city, and said, “O Moses! The chiefs are considering your case with a view to kill you. You better leave immediately. Surely, I wish you well.” * So he escaped from there, fearful, vigilant and said, “My Lord! Save me from the oppressive people.” * As he turned his face towards Midyan, he said to himself, “It may well be that my Lord will guide me onto the right road.“ * When he arrived at the wells of Midyan, he found a crowd of people watering their herds and flocks. And he found two women who were keeping away their flocks. He asked, “What is the matter with you?” They said, “We cannot water our flocks until the shepherds take back their flocks. And our father is a very old man.” * So he watered their flocks for them; then he turned back to the shade (of the tree he had been relaxing under). And he said, “My Lord! I am in dire need of any good that You bestow upon me and any opportunity that You provide me for doing good.” * Shortly afterwards, one of the two maidens came to him walking shyly, and said, “My father invites you, so that he might duly reward you for having watered our flocks for us.” As soon as Moses came to him and told him the story, he said, “Have no fear! You are now safe from those oppressive people.” * One of the two maidens said, “O My father! Hire him! For, the best one you can hire is the competent, the trustworthy.” * He (the father) said, “I am willing to let you marry one of these two daughters of mine on the understanding that you will remain eight pilgrimages (years) in my service. Then if you make it ten, it will be a grace from you. I do not want to impose any hardship on you. God willing, you will find me righteous in all my dealings.” * He (Moses) said, “Be that the agreement between me and you. Whichever of the two terms I fulfill, there will be no injustice to me. And God be Witness to all that we say.” * And when Moses had fulfilled his term, and was traveling with his family, he saw a fire on the slope of Tur. He said to his family, “Stay here. I have seen a fire. I hope to bring you some information from there, or a burning torch, that you may warm yourselves.” * But when he came close to it, he was called from the right side of the valley in the blessed field, from the tree, “O Moses! Certainly, I am God, the Lord of the Worlds.” [28:20-30]

We had given the scripture to Moses - after We had annihilated several earlier communities - to give insight to people, and a guidance and a mercy, that they might reflect. * And (O Prophet) you were not present on the western slope when We expounded the commandments to Moses, nor were you among those who witnessed his times. * Nay, but between them and you We brought forth many generations, and long was their life-span. And neither did you dwell among the people of Midyan, conveying to them Our messages. Nay, but We have been sending Messengers. * And neither were you present on the slope of Tur when We called Moses. But you are sent as an act of your Lord’s grace, to warn people to whom no warner has come before you, so that they may reflect. [28:43-46]

so, We turned the it (town of Lot) upside down and showered upon them rocks of baked clay * Therein, are lessons for the inquiring minds. * Indeed it (town) is on a road well established. * Indeed in it is a message for those who believe. * And the dwellers of woods (of Midyan, the people of Shuaib), were also wrongdoers. * And so We took retribution from them. Indeed both these communities lived by a highway clear. [15:74-79]

And the dwellers of the wood denied the Messengers. * When their brother Sho’aib said to them, “Will you not seek to live upright? * Truly, I am a Messenger to you, worthy of your trust. [26:176-178]

To Midyan, We sent Shuaib, their brother, to them. [7:85, 11:84]

So, what information we have now?

Moses came to Midyan, married to a daughter of Old Shaikh and stayed in Midyan for period of 8 to 10 years. After completing the term, when Moses was travelling with his family he saw fire on side of Tur where he talked to Allah SWT.

Prophet SAW was was not residing in Midyan, but seems to be very familiar with this Tur and Midyan.

People of wood, to whom Prophet Shuaib was sent, and people of Lot living on same well established road in same region.

Moreover, Prophet Shuaib was sent to people of Madyan.

With this information it would be interesting if there were a Mountain on the Arabian peninsula that was named after any prophet. One would expect such a mountain to be in or close to the area commonly accepted as Midyan in the North West or even in or close to Sinai. After all, here we have an “independent” tradition for Jethro and “a thicket” and therefore Moses.

Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of the Lord…[Exodus 3:1]

Is it, therefore, not surprising to find a mountain Jabal an Nabi Shu'ayb (the mountain of the Prophet Shu'ayb) which having an elevation of 3760 m is the HIGHEST mountain in YEMEN?



Now look for where Kingdom of Sheba was:

If Kingdom of Sheba was in Marib, Yemen, then where can be the Kingdom of Solomon?
Just study this and you will get fair idea:

Where were people of Aad to whom Prophet Hud AH was sent?

And to ‘Ād We sent their brother Hūd …… * "Are you surprised that a reminder has come to you from your Rabb through a man from among you to warn you? And remember that He made you successors after the people of Nūh, and He increased you in status. So remember the grace of Allah that you may succeed." [Quran, 7:65-69].

And to 'Ād was sent their brother Hūd. He said: …, * "And my people, seek forgiveness from your Rabb, then repent to Him; He will send (from) the sky to you in abundance (rain), and He will add might to your might. So do not turn away as criminals." * They said: "O Hūd, you have not come to us with any proof, nor will we leave our gods based on what you say. We will not believe in you.” [Quran, 11:50-53]

'Ād denied the messengers * For their brother Hūd said to them: "Will you not be righteous?" * … * "Do you build in every high place a symbol, for the sake of vanity? * … * And be aware of the One who provided you with what you know." * He provided you with livestock and sons * And gardens and springs." [Quran, 26:123-134]

What type of topography is described here. And Allah destroyed ‘Ād in a way that was fitting of how they built their homes. Not with a flood, but with something else… something that their high and lofty homes and fortresses could not save them from.

How they were destroyed? Barren, violent, furious sand storm.

Where exactly the wind came from?
And recall that the brethren of ‘Ād when he warned his people of the ahqāf, (giant sand dunes), while numerous warnings were also delivered before him and with him: “You shall not serve except Allah. For, I fear for you the retribution of a great day.” * They said: “Have you come to us to divert us away from our gods? Then bring us what you are promising us, if you are truthful!?” * He said: “The knowledge is only with Allah; and I but convey to you what I was sent with. However, I see that you are a people who are ignorant” * Then when they saw it (the retribution) heading towards their valleys, they said: “This is but a passing cloud that will bring to us heavy rain!”, “No, this is what you had asked to be hastened; a violent wind wherein there is a painful retribution” * It destroys everything by the command of its Rabb. Thus they became such that nothing could be seen except their dwellings. We thus requite the criminal people. [Quran, 46:21-25].

The first major clue given here is the term ahqāf, which appears at the beginning of the passage. This Arabic word is derived from the root verb hqf (حقف ), which means: to gather together / shovel (as in quantities dirt or sand) / stacked on top of each other. The word is used in the colloquial dialects of South Arabia, as indicating a region of giant sand dunes.

Contemplate the Rub‘ al-Khāli Desert (the Empty Quarter), which happens to be the largest sand desert on the planet. Note that the more one moves southward, the less rocky the desert becomes and the more sand is accumulated, until one reaches the northern border of Yemen and Oman, where these sand dunes become monstrous in size and are legendary for emitting strange sounds. In fact, this area of the desert has been named al-Ahqāf for countless generations, and the nomads of Oman even consider it a sacred region, barring any non-Muslim from entering it except in extreme circumstances.
