The Holy Quran describes the story of Prophet Noah (peace be on him), his building
of the Ark, the people who
joined him and the Flood in detail. The water started gushing out from a particular oven,
followed by a large number of other springs as well as a heavy down pour from the sky. The lost city of Ubar, called
"the Atlantis of the Sands" by Lawrence of Arabia, has been found in remote
southern Oman using pictures taken from space shuttle Challenger. The city is referred to
as Iram, the "city of towers" in the Holy Quran, Surah Al-Fajr.
