What sea splitted with the staff of Moses (Pbuh) in which pharaoh and his army drowned?

الجواب حامداومصليا

Assalam u Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,

We certainly do not know the exact location of the parting of the sea during the time of Musa Alaihis Salam as Qur'an or Sunnah did describe that for us. There have been many opinion regarding the exact location and name of sea that parted during that time. After much study and research I believe that it was somewhere in the Guld of Aqaba.

And Allah knows best.
