The pyramids are basically raised graves and the Sphinx is nothing more than an idol..
Remember these are the remnants of a nation that was destroyed by Allaah so instead of us looking at them and marvelling at them we should use them to increase our Taqwa because these are signs from Allaah.
Remember when the Messenger :arabic5: and his Companions came across the ruins of Thamud?
'Abdullah b. Umar reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said in connection with the people of Hijr (Thamud): Do not enter but weepingly (the habitations) of these people who bad been punished by (Allah), and in case you do not feel inclined to weep, then do not enter (these habitations) that you may not meet the same calamity as had fallen to their lot.
Ibn Shihab reported, and he had been talking about the stony abodes of Thamud, and he said: Salim b. 'Abdullah reported that 'Abdullah b. Umar said: We were passing along with Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) through the habitations of Hijr, and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Do not enter but weepingly the habitations of these persons who committed tyranny among themselves, lest the same calamity should fall upon you as it fell upon them. He then urged his mount to proceed quickly and pass through that valley hurriedly.
Please listen to this Insha'Allah:
