Buried civilizations; Muslim Quran predicts

There were many civilizations that were destroyed by floods or reigning down of hot magma and rain soot from eruptions. These cities were buried whole, they include the likes of ancient Naples and neighboring Pompey where the entire city was buried in eruption and new cities built above it. In re-building cities, Romans sometimes employed reinforcing blocks below to hold up the new cities. Recent scientific explorations have discovered several such amazing cities and entire states buried beneath new cities. Entire civilizations wiped out and replaced.

The Muslim Holy Quran clearly predicted and promised the discovery of these as we see here and in several other similar verses:

[Quran 40:21] Have they not traveled in the earth and seen how was the end of those who were before them? Mightier than these were they in strength– and in fortifications in the land, but Allah destroyed them for their sins; and there was not for them any defender against Allah.

[Quran 11.82] So when Our decree came to pass, We turned them upside down and rained down upon them stones, of what had been decreed, one after another.

[Quran 20.128] Is it not a guidance for them (to know) how many a generation We destroyed before them, amid whose dwellings they walk? Lo! therein verily are signs for men of thought.

I have read the chapter in the quran entitled “The Romans” and the first line says that the Roman Empire has fallen,and that was written a few hundred years before the Roman Empire actually fell.

30. Surah Ar-Rum (Rome)

In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Most Merciful

1. Alif-Lam-Mim.

[These letters are one of the miracles of the Qur’an, and none but Allah (Alone) knows their meanings].

2. The Romans have been defeated.

3. In the nearer land (Syria, Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine), and they, after their defeat, will be victorious.

4. Within three to nine years. The decision of the matter, before and after (these events) is only with Allah, (before the defeat of Romans by the Persians, and after, i.e. the defeat of the Persians by the Romans). And on that Day, the believers (i.e. Muslims) will rejoice (at the victory given by Allah to the Romans against the Persians),

On the basis of this prediction, Hadhrat Abu Bakr May Allah be pleased with him made a bet with some of the idolaters (betting was not prohibited at that time) that if the Romans did not get victory within nine years, he would give them a hundred camels, otherwise they would give him a certain number of camels. In the beginning Hadhrat Abu Bakr May Allah be pleased with him appointed ‘bidh’a sineen’ (a few more years) as three years from his own opinion. Bur afterwards, at the bidding of the Prophet Peace and Blessings be upon him, the covenant was made on the term of nine years, which is the real application of the word ‘bidha’. On the other side, the Caesar of the Roman Empire was determined to regain the lost power and vowed that if he defeated the Persians, he would go to ‘Baitul Maqdis’ by foot. Behold the power of Allah! According to the Quranic prediction, right within nine years, after the passing of one year of Hijrah, on the day of Badr, when the Muslims were rejoicing in the clear victory over the idolaters, by the grace of Allah, became happier with the news that Allah had made the Romans (the people of the book) to prevail over the Persians fire-worshippers. In this way the idolaters got a double blow of disgrace.
