In the primary scripture of Islam, the Quran, Haman (Arabic: : هامان, pronounced: hāmān) is claimed to have been close to the Pharaoh at the time of a religious prophet, Moses. The name Haman appears six times throughout the whole Qur'an, four times with Pharaoh and twice by himself, where God sent Moses to invite Pharaoh and Haman to monotheism, and to seek protection of the Israelites Haman and Pharaoh were tormenting. Referring to Moses as a sorcerer and a liar, Pharaoh and Haman rejected Moses' call to worship this God and refused to set the children of Israel free. Haman was commissioned to build a tall tower, using burnt bricks, for this Pharaoh to climb up to the God of Moses.
"So Pharaoh Bocchoris (5) went to the oracle of Hammon to ask for a cure, and was told to purify his kingdom by expelling the victims to other lands, as they lay under a divine curse." 
"they consecrated an image of the animal which had delivered them from their wandering and thirst, choosing a ram as beast of sacrifice to demonstrate, so it seems, their contempt for Hammon."
