The Qur’an’s “Pharaoh of Awtad”

This is the third episode of the “Exodus” series.
The Qur’an describes Pharaoh with the unique title “dhū al-awtād” (of awtād), which I argue particularly applied to Ramesses II. This is another significant piece of information in the Qur’an that does not exist in the Old Testament’s narrative of the Exodus.
