Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass, the former Minister of Antiquities, said that the antiquities do not contain proof that Moses lived in Egypt or the exodus of the Israelites from it.

 Hawass added, “I am a Muslim who believes that our Master Moses lived in Egypt and that the exodus occurred from Egypt, But on the other hand, is there evidence in the antiquities that prove this?” no".

He explained that “the ancient Egyptians set a program that determined how the king would transform into a god,” saying that the program included the king building a cemetery for himself and temples for himself and the gods, unifying Upper and Lower Egypt, offering sacrifices to the gods, or defeating Egypt’s enemies.
