Prophet Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said: ” The Hour (of Resurrection) will not occur….. until the land of the Arabs returns to being pastures and rivers.” (Sahih Muslim).
Saudi Arabia is drilling for a resource possibly more precious than oil. Over the last 24 years, it has tapped hidden reserves of water to grow wheat and other crops in the Syrian Desert. This time series of data shows images acquired by three different Landsat satellites operated by NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey.
The picture is taken by NASA and now it’s 2014, the hour is near. are you ready to meet Allah ?
Hundreds of children in Nepal have to make perilous journeys to school every day using gondola-like wire bridges built over dangerous rivers. Risking injury and death, many take the measure so they can get an education and make it to school. Al Jazeera’s Subina Shrestha reports from Dhading.
In the early 600s, a new religious and political force arose out of the deserts of Arabia. Islam, spearheaded by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, quickly became the way of life for the entire Arabian Peninsula within a few years of the first revelations. By the end of the reigns of the first four caliphs, the Islamic realm extended from Libya in the West to Persia in the East. And just 100 years after the death of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, Muslims had expanded the empire into Spain and India.
A comedian said the Palestinians deserve to be dead. Then shortly after this her soul has been taken.
No doubt her death was written and she couldn’t escape her appointed term. Now she has seen the true reality of this life but it is perhaps too late.
Take heed from her death and wake up before it’s late. Make sure your funeral prayer isn’t the only time you attend a Salah.

Let’s contemplate this new invention about ancient Egypt and the rivers and plantsit had and how the Qur’an precisely talks about them.
Scientists have recently proven that the historical places where the pyramids are found in Egypt were one day rich in rivers and forests and this scientific fact hasn’t been proven until the mid of 2012 according to a scientific study that lasted for several years. Amazingly, however, the holy Qur’an precisely talks about this fact 1,400 years ago; all glory to Allah, The Almighty.
Ibn Qayyim said
“For the people of sins there are 3 great rivers with which they purify themselves in this world and if these do not suffice in purifying them, then they are purified in the river of Hellfire on the Day of Judgment:
1. a river of sincere repentance,
2. a river of good deeds that drowns the sins that surround it.
3. and a river of great calamities (that befall the sinner) that expiate (his sins)
Therefore, when Allah intends good for His slave, He enters him into one of these 3 rivers, so he comes purified and cleansed on the Day of Judgement, not requiring the fourth purification.
And the forth purification: The river of Hellfire on Yaum Al-Qiyamah.
So swim in the river of repentance and doing good deeds and have patience in the river of calamities. And do not neglect these before a day comes when you will be drowned in the river of Hell-fire whose fuel is men and stones”
[Madaarij as-Saalikeen 1/312, Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah]

Small rivers often have different names which include creek, stream and brook.
Rivers normally contain freshwater.
The word upriver (or upstream) refers to the direction of the river’s water source, while downriver (or downstream) refers to the direction in which the water flows, i.e. towards the end of the river.
Rivers have many uses which include fishing, bathing, transport, rafting and swimming among others.
Most of the world’s major cities are located near the banks of rivers.
