Dead Sea

Lowest point on Earth.

After the Romans were defeated by the Persians the Quran predicted that they shall be victorious again. This battle took place near the Dead Sea.

[Quran 30.2-3] The Romans were defeated in the lowest of land (adna in Arabic أَدْنَى) they will be, after this defeat, victorious again.

Adna in Arabic أَدْنَى has two meanings: the nearest and the lowest. Today we know that the Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth (423 m or 1388 ft. below sea level).

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have located the lowest point on Earth?
