This hadith states that the Arab land was filled with pastures and rivers. Now scientists talk about fossils for animals that lived in the Arabian Peninsula, these support the prophet hadith on the existence of pastures and rivers in the Arab lands. Also many traces of lakes were find in addition to ground water that was mapped at great depths.
However, the hadith also tells us that this arid rainless area will be filled with pastures and lakes as it used to be.
Some hadith expounders say this happended since ground water is now used in these arid desert for growing many crops. However, others object and, according to scientific findings, now they say that this will happen if ice masses melt in the north poles as explained by Alfred Koroze, a renowned geolgist.
The world change in temperature will cause large masses of ice to melt in the north poles of the earth and large floods of water will fill rivesr and seas, scientifcally established is that many coastal cities will suffer so much. However great masses of water will find its way to the Arabian Peninsula filling the dry lakes. Here a study that we quote from NASA website that states that a notable change already took place in ice masses in the North Pole.
“Extent ofsurface melt over Greenland’s ice sheet on July 8 (left) and July 12 (right). Measurements from three satellites showed that on July 8, about 40 percent of the ice sheet had undergone thawing at or near the surface. In just a few days, the melting had dramatically accelerated and an estimated 97 percent of the ice sheet surface had thawed by July 12. In the image, the areas classified as “probable melt” (light pink) correspond to those sites where at least one satellite detected surface melting. The areas classified as “melt” (dark pink) correspond to sites where two or three satellites detected surface melting. The satellites are measuring different physical properties at different scales and are passing over Greenland at different times. As a whole, they provide a picture of an extreme melt event about which scientists are very confident. Credit: Nicolo E. DiGirolamo, SSAI/NASA GSFC, and Jesse Allen, NASA Earth Observatory
