Genesis 8:4 "Then the ark rested ... on the mountains of Ararat."
●○ Other Jewish books says on the mount of lubar
Book of Noah - The Midrash locate the Ark on Lu-Bar. (Fasold, p 232)
●○ The Apocryphon 10:12 and 12:13 from the Qumran scrolls also notate Lu-Bar as the site of the Ark.
The book of jubilees (5:28) says the ark rested on the mount of Lubar
●○ But The Quran says on mount Al-Judi
Quran 11-44 "And it was said: "O earth! Swallow up your water, and O sky! Withhold (your rain)." And the water was diminished (made to subside) and the Decree (of Allah) was fulfilled and it rested on the mount Al-Judi ..."
Mount Al-Judi (Cudi) is located approximately 200 miles south of Mt. Ararat in southern Turkey almost within eyesight of the Syrian and Iraqi borders.
Which one is the truth?
Lately a large pieces of wood was found in mount Judi by geologists, So it said to be found in this mountain. Dr. Charles Willis and Bill Crouse, both veterans of Mt. Ararat exploration in the 1980's, now believe that Mt. Judi is the correct mountain for the ark's landfall. One big reason why Judi has become more popular recently is that a geologist, Dr. Friedrich Bender of Germany, found bits of wood containing asphalt on the summit of Cudi under 0.8-1.0 meters in depth in 1953.

'Arkologists' claim to have found Noah's Ark By Martin Wroe LONDON -- Noah's Ark has been found on the Turkish- Iranian border, 32 kilometres from Mount Ararat, according to the leader of a team of scientists that has been investigating the site for six years.
The Turkish government is so convinced by the findings that, after years of intransigence, it has designated the site one of special archaeological interest and agreed to its excavation next summer.
The remote site contains a buried, ship-like object, resting an altitude of 2,300 metres. At 170 metres long and 45 metres wide, it conforms almost exactly to the 300 cubit by 50 cubit boat that God told Noah to build, according to Genesis 6 in the Bible.
On surrounding terrain, the American and Middle Eastern scientists have identified huge stones with holes carved at one end, which they believe are "drogue- stones," dragged behind ships in the ancient world to stabilize them. Radar soundings indicate unusual levels of iron-oxide distribution. Salih Bayraktutan, head of geology at Turkey's Ataturk University, estimates the age of the 'vessel' at more than 100,000 years. "It is a man-made structure and for sure it is Noah's Ark."
The site is directly below the mountain of Al Judi, named in the Qur'an as the Ark's resting place.

Abu Salim reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, sent Khalid ibn Al-Waleed to the tribe of Jadhima and he invited them to Islam but they could not express themselves by saying, “We embrace Islam,” so instead they said, “We have left one religion for another.” Khalid started killing them and taking them prisoner and he gave each one of us a prisoner. The day came when Khalid ordered each man to execute his prisoner, so I said, “By Allah, I will not kill my prisoner and none of my companions will kill his prisoner!” When we reached the Prophet, we mentioned the incident to him. He raised both of his hands and he said twice, “O Allah! I disavow myself to You from what Khalid has done!”
Old Testament condemns idol worship in the following verses:
"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:" "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God." [The Bible, Exodus 20:3-5]
(ii) A similar message is repeated in the book of Deuteronomy:
"Thou shalt have none other gods before me."
"Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that in the earth beneath, or that is in the water beneath the earth."
"Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them; for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God." [The Bible, Deuteronomy 5:7-9]
Abu Qatadah reported: He entered upon Kabsha bint Ka’b and she poured for him some water for ablution. Then a cat came to drink from the vessel so he tilted it in order to let her drink. He saw Kabsha looking at him and he said, “Are you surprised, O daughter of my brother?” She said, “Yes.” He said, “Verily, the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: Indeed, the cat is not unclean, for they go around you and mingle with you.”
