Noah

The story of Noah and the flood is found in a number of different passages in the Quran. Muslim exegetes say that the Ark came to rest on Mount Judi and that Noah was buried nearby. Some claim that Noah founded a city called al-Thamanin (i.e. "the Eighty) because there were 80 people on the Ark. Many exegetes say that the first city founded by Noah, and where he was buried, was called "Karak." This may account for the fact that there are tombs of Noah in several different cities named Kerak: Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq.
