In Egypt, discovered a cave with graffiti the first Muslims.
Archaeologists have discovered in the red sea a unique cave where the first Muslim pilgrims from Egypt left notes.
As reported by the Egyptian newspaper “Ahram”, many of the inscriptions were made at the end of VII – beginning of VIII century. In the cave, according to scientists, took refuge mainly pilgrims EN route to Mecca or to Jerusalem.
According to Mohamed tuni, an archaeologist from the Museum of Islamic and Coptic antiquities, preserved in the vaults of the cave inscriptions can be divided into two categories. First boil down to the phrase “there is No God but Allah”. The second represent letters of appreciation: “God brought this poor servant of Ben Youssef Hatem al-Shati from Hegira his family in 755. May God have mercy on him and his parents and all Muslims.”
At the moment the Ministry of antiquities of Egypt plans to include the cave in the official list of the ancient sites of the country.
