Overview It has been scientifically and geologically proven that the Arab peninsula was once blessed with rivers and gardens. Moreover scientific studies predict that the Arab peninsula will once again be filled with such luxuries. The Prophet Muhammad (SWS) in just a few words states that in ancient times the Arab lands were filled with rivers and gardens and it will be rivers and gardens once again .
The Rub al Khali (literally, "quarter of emptiness"), or “The Sands” for short, is the world's largest sand sea. At more than 225,000 square miles (583,000 square kilometers), it takes in substantial portions of Saudi Arabia, as well as parts of Oman, Yemen, and the United Arab Emirates to create an arid wilderness larger than France.
It Was Filled With Lakes Modern studies prove that the desert of Rub Al-Kahli was once green land with long rivers. A recent study says : “ The great Rub' al-Khali desert began to form more than two million years ago according to McClure, while the lakes were formed just yesterday in geological terms. In fact, evidence indicates that lakes formed twice: once from roughly 37,000 to 17,000 years ago, and then again from around 10,000 to 5,000 years ago. In the interim, "hyper-arid," period, as today, rain was very rare.
The location of the city of Ad was discovered by photographs taken from a Space Shuttle. On the photograph, the place where caravan trails intersect is marked, pointing towards Ubar. 1.Ubar, could only be seen from space before excavations were made. 2.A city 12 meters below the sands was uncovered by excavations.
Professor Zandani, one of the contemporary Muslim scientists, asked Professor Alfred Koroze if there are any scientific studies that show that the Arab lands will once again be rainy with gardens. He said: " This is a well-established fact that geologists not only agree on but even can calculate when such matters happen…
Who told Prophet Muhammad (SWS) these historical facts that were only discovered in the last few decades? Who told him that the Arabian peninsula will once again be blessed with rivers and gardens although this fact was discovered only a few years ago by modern Geology? Why then, would he claim to have knowledge of what seemed to be unbelievable to his contemporaries who had been surrounded by barren desert for as long as they could have remembered? Indeed, no one but a Prophet sent by God could have known such facts.
