Sayyiduna Ibn ‘Abbas has reported that Allah has made five streams to flow in the earth which have their origin in the Heaven: (1) Jayhoon (2) Yahoon (3) Dijlah (4) Euphrates (Furaat) (5) Nile. All these five streams have emerged from the same spring. Allah has temporarily placed this heavenly spring in the mountains through Sayyiduna J ibra ‘eel and has made these streams flow in the earth from the mountains. The people are gaining various benefits from these streams. When the time of the emergence of Yajooj Majooj (Gog and Magog) will come, Allah will
send Sayyiduna Jibra’eel on the earth and he will take away six things from the earth:
The Holy Quran
All the knowledge
Coffin of Sayyiduna Musa
The five aforementioned streams
When these six things will be withdrawn from the earth, then all spiritual and material virtues will also vanish from the face of the earth and the people will be totally deprived of all blessings.
(I’afseer As-Saawi, vol. 4, pp. 1360; part 18, Surah Al-Mu ‘minoon, Ayah 18)
Allah says in the Holy Quran that:
And We sent down water from the sky in a measured amount, then stored it in the earth. And indeed We have the Power to take it away.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (I’ranslation of Quran)] (Part 18, Surah Al-Mu ‘minoon, Ayah 18)
In the above Ayah, the section means the same thing that Allah jz_;’.,.< will take away all the waters and the streams and return them to their origin from where they had descended.
It is now obligatory for the people to pay gratitude in the court of Allah and take care of these bounties. They should never waste water purposelessly. We should always fear Allah as these blessings might be taken away.
