By:H.Shams

Cyrus Tomb

Cyrus was the greatest Persian Emperor and a honest person. At the season of triumph, he was liberal toward vanquished individuals. Being a freeman, he won the heart of his kin, allowing them to revere their divine beings. He was exceptionally unbeatable in everywhere throughout the world. Contrasting Cyrus' way and Semi's rulers, one feels awesome delight for the Persian magnanimity and liberality and really sees the Persian as the teacher of human race.Zol-qarnain in the Quran is Cyrus the Great

Much data, concerning the chronicled figure famous, among Western individuals, for excellence and mankind exudes from two dependable sources, the Bible and Herodotus written in fifth Cent. BC. It is broadcasted that Cyrus was the main administrative who issued various standards as far as human rights.

Having vanquished the Medes, he established Achaemenid administration as the main Persian Emperor. In light of a few stories of the Old Testament, Cyrus caught Babel, with the guide of God, set free the Jewish prisoners and let them backpedal to Jerusalem.

A few translators trust that in Quran, Zol-gharnein alludes to "Alexander the Great", while some others, contrasting a few verses of Quran relevant with Zol-gharnein and Cyrus' biography, accept that God signified "Cyrus the Great" and nobody else.

Cyrus the Great

In the heavenly Qur'an, there are 16 verses in the Kahf Sureh (verses 83-98) that discussion about Zol-qarnain and a few parts of his identity. Zol-qarnain of the heavenly Qur'an is NOT Alexander the Great. It is Cyrus the Great, the acclaimed Persian lord of the Achamenid Dynasty (580-529BC). Consider the accompanying:

1-Alexander was not a monotheistic man. He was a blasphemer who revered the numerous divine forces of Ancient Greece. The Biography of Alexander, composed by an acclaimed Greek history specialist (Herodotus) expresses that Alexander trusted that he was the child of Zeus! The Qur'an's Zol-qarnain was God-worshiping and a monotheist, as was Cyrus. As the most likely date for the presence of Zoroaster is in the mid-6th century B.C., this date is near the time Cyrus lived.

2-Cyrus is specified in the Old Testament and the Book of Ezra as a God-loving individual, a portrayal that coordinated the characteristics of Zol-qarnain in the Qur'an.

3-The deeds of the Achaemenian ruler were in understanding to the deeds portrayed in the Qur'an, as he battled with the Lydians in Asia Minor and after that with the Sakas in the east (not at all like Alexander the Great).

4-The Koranic verses in the 'AL KAHF' sura, which discuss Zol-qarnain, start with the words: "And they get some information about Zol-qarnain..". Implying that the Jews are getting some information about him. This implies this lord was known to the Jews, and is said in the Old Testament. Alexander the Great is not said in the Old Testament, nor did he have any nearby connection with the Jews.

5-Zol-qarnain in the Qur'an is said to have manufactured a hindrance of copper and iron in the wake of battling the Ya'jooj and Ma'jooj individuals. Cyrus assembled a comparative obstruction in the Daryal Pass, the remaining parts of which are as yet existing.

6-"qarn" in Arabic has two implications: "horn" and "century". " Zol-qarnain " could actually mean in Arabic: "The man of two horns" or "The man of two centuries". This "single word having numerous implications" yet Cyrus Relief, in Pasargadae demonstrates The man of two horns.!

7-Cyrus is an identity specified in the Bible, i.e the Old Testament (the Book of Daniel, the Book of Ezra and some different books where Cyrus is alluded to in exceptionally unequivocal terms: Daniel imagined that in the royal residence of Susa in Elam, a two-horned smash triumphed over all creatures, except for a one-horned goat that at last crushed the slam. Daniel lost cognizance after this fantasy and a heavenly attendant appeared to him, saying that the smash he had seen was the ruler of the Medes and the Persians, while the one-horned goat was the lord of the Greeks) (Book of Daniel, section 8, verses 20-21).

Zol-gharnein was a lenient lord who was thoughtful to inferiors which is valid for Cyrus the Great to the degree that even his adversaries worshipped him. He was the person who issued the Charter of Liberty and Human Rights in Babel.
