Oceanography supports the Quranic statement on the barrier between two seas when they meet, also it supports its scientific statement on river-sea estuary.

  1. 1. Only a few decades ago, man firstknew that saline seas have differentcharacteristics and that they don’tmix when they meet.The story began when the ship"Challenger" went on a scientificexpedition that took three years tostudy the world seas.The findings of these scientificJourney were amazing, later manystudies were conducted and satellitepicture for seas where sent andthese all are in agreement with thediscoveries of Challenger.

  2. 2. (1) Seas different in temperature , salinity anddensity never mingle when they meet.(2) There is always a barrier between the twoseas of different salinity, temperature and densitywhen they meet. Mediterranean sea water as it enters the Atlantic over the(3) This barrier keeps the two seas moving side Gibraltar sill with its own warm,by side or over each other. saline, and less dense characteristics, because of the barrier that distinguishes between them. Temperatures are in degrees Celsius (C°).(5) Pearls and coral live only in Saline water. (Marine Geology, Kuenen, p. 43, with a slight enhancement.)

We can see here the partition (zone ofbetween the sea and the river. separation) between the fresh and the salt water.(9) Unlike the case when two seas meet, (Introductory Oceanography,the partition between the river and the Thurman, p. 301, with a slight enhancement.sea doesn’t allow sea organisms to passinto the other mass.
  4. 4. The Holy Quran scientific verseson the Barrier Between Two Seas
  5. 5. Holy Quran, the Muslim holy book that wasrevealed to an illiterate man, ( Prophet Muhammad)who never left the Arab peninsula, always providesevidences not only to the existence of God but also toprove its (Quarn) divine source and that Muhammadwas a true prophet from God. these evidence are the scientific versesthat mention scientific facts that man only discoveredafter he developed his search methods and histechnological apparatus. the bare scientific facts in science texts, thescientific facts in Quran move your eyes to tears andfill your heart with ecstasy.
  6. 6. He (God) released the two seas, meeting [sideby side]; (19)Between them is a barrier [so]neither of them transgresses. (20)So which of thefavors of your Lord would you deny? (21)Fromboth of them emerge pearl and coral. (55:22)Transliteration:Maraja Al-Baĥrayni Yaltaqiyāni, BaynahumāBarzakhun Lā Yabghiyāni, Fabiayyi ĀlāiRabbikumā Tukadhdhibāni, Yakhruju Minhumā Al-Luuluuu Wa Al-Marjānu

  8. 8. According to this verse:There is a partition between a sea and another None of the two seas transgresses the otherOnly in saline water live pearl and coral So Who told Muhammad this precise information, He must have been Allah(God). This means that this Holy Quran must have been revealed from God to Muhammad
  9. 9. It is He Who has Let free the two bodies Of flowingwater: One palatable and sweet ( that is river or waterfountains), And the other salty and bitter( that is thesaline sea) ; Yet has He Made a barrier between them,And a partition that is forbidden To be passed.” [Al-Qur’aan 25:53]Transliteration:Wahuwa allathee maraja albahrayni hatha AAathbun furatunwahatha milhun ojajun wajaAAala baynahuma barzakhanwahijran mahjooran www.knowmuhammad.org

  11. 11. Why does the Holy Quran say partition that is forbidden To be passed when describing the estuary of a river and a sea?It has been noticed that the estuary ofriver and sea is always surrounded witha barrier that keep each mass of watermoving without mixing with the otherfor hundreds of Kilometers, thispreventing partition, too, has its ownindependent identity. Each mass isdifferent from the other in its salinity,temperature, density and even themarine organism in each mass isdeferent from the other. www.knowmuhammad.org
  12. 12. The significance of the Arabic words"Higra Mahjoura, translated “And a partition that is forbidden To be passed. "The Arabic words " " Higra Mahjoura"" means:A closed area of water (could be likened to aclosed room), this add a new scientific fact;it is owing to this strong barrier, li8kened toa closed area, that non of the organism ofeach mass can pass to live in the other, ifthey pass they would certainly die.

  13. 13. Satellite image of an Estuary  Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image of the Rio de la Plata estuary (Argentina), with input of river water from the Uruguay and Parana rivers notably visible.The Estuary region has its own organisms
  14. 14. It should be noted that the Holy Quran uses theword sea when referring to the river but todistinguish it from the saline sea, it says palatableand sweet simply because there are fountains at thebottom of the saline sea, these, too, gush palatablewater that has preventing partition that separate itfrom the saline water.It is only by modern technology aided by thermalpictures from satellites that man could discover thisrecently found facts. www.knowmuhammad.org
