|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.
