Did Haman live in the same time period as Moses and Pharaoh?

Bible: No       Qur'an: Yes

Exodus 2:9-10 – 9. And Pharoah’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me... 10. And she called his name Moses; and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.

Esther 3:1 – After these things did King Ahasuerus promote Haman, the son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, and advanced him, and set his seat above all the princes who were with him.

Ghafir 40:23-24 & 36-37 – 23. And verily We sent Moses with Our revelations and a clear warrant 24. To Pharoah, Haman...” 36. And Pharoah said: “O Haman, build for me a tower, that I may reach the ways.”

Note: Moses and Pharaoh lived around 1450 B.C.; But Haman in the book of Esther lived 1000 years later during the reign of Ahasuerus (King Xerxes) 486-474 B.C.
