Stopping the Flow of the
Stopping and interrupting the flow of the
Euphrates is one of the signs of the Mahdi's
emergence, and therefore Jesus' second coming.
Other hadiths reveal important information
on this subject:
Interrupting this river's flow and disclosing
its treasure of gold, both of which are
important portents of Prophet Jesus' (pbuh)
second coming, are mentioned in many respected
books of hadith.
For the first and last time
in history, Euphrates will
not flow for 3 days
Keban Dam started to collect
of the Keban dam stopped the
flow of the Euphrates.
( Hurriyet, November 4, 1973)
Let's examine some important statements
revealed in the hadiths one by one:
God's Messenger said: "The
Hour will not come to pass before the river
Euphrates dries up and unveils the mountain
of gold." (Sahih Muslim)
… the river Euphrates dries
As-Suyuti mentions this hadith as "the
stopping of water." The Keban dam, built
in 1975, has accomplished this.
… unveils the mountain of
The surrounding land has become as valuable
as gold for various reasons, for the Keban
dam has enabled electricity production and
higher soil fertility through irrigation
and transport facilities.
The Keban and other dams lining the Euphrates
resemble a concrete mountain, and wealth
as valuable as gold comes out of it. Therefore,
these dams take on the properties of "the
golden mountain." (God knows best.)
