The Last Hour would not come unless the Euphrates would uncover a treasure of gold, so he who finds it should not take anything out of that. (Muslim: Book #041, Hadith #6920)
Some of us are already aware of the fact that gold has been uncovered in the river Euphrates. And the above mentioned hadith should be taken as a warning for those of us who are residing near the river and taking out the gold. Kindly remember that Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) has advised us against taking “anything out of that”.
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (May peace be upon him) as saying: The Last Hour would not come before the Euphrates uncovers a mountain of gold, for which people would fight. Ninety-nine out of each one hundred would die but every man amongst them would say that perhaps he would be the one who would be saved (and thus possess this gold). (Sahih Muslim: Book #041, Hadith #6918)
From the above quoted hadith, we observe that Euphrates revealing a mountain of gold is a sign of the Last Hour. As the water level of the river is declining, the gold is becoming visible. Even in the Bible shrinking of the River Euphrates has been mentioned as a sign for the massive war that will take place between the armies of the Truth and falsehood before the end of the world.
The sixth angel emptied his bowl on the great river Euphrates. Its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East. I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come from the mouth of the dragon, from the mouth of the beast, and from the mouth of the false prophet. These were demonic spirits who performed signs. They went out to the kings of the whole world to assemble them for the battle on the great day of God the almighty. (“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is the one who watches and keeps his clothes ready, so that he may not go naked and people see him exposed.) They then assembled the kings in the place that is named Armageddon in Hebrew. (Bible: Book of Revelations, Ch 16, verse 12-16)
We as Muslims call that war “al-malhama al-kubra”, to which our Christian brothers/sisters refer to as the Armageddon. Thus, we see that in both the Ahadith and the Bible, River Euphrates holds a great importance as a sign of the Last Hour.
The place of the great battle.
After reading the mentioned verses of the Bible, we see that the drying of the river Euphrates is the set up for the kings that will be at the final battle. The verse 16 of chapter 16 of the Book of revelation, says: “They then assembled the kings in the place that is named Armageddon in Hebrew.” Armageddon in Hebrew means “Mountain of Megiddo” or “the valley of Megiddo.”
Drying of the River Euphrates will reveal a valley, & the name of that valley is “Megiddo”. What conclusion does this information make us reach? It’s a very simple conclusion:
The preparations to wrap up the jumbo circus called the “worldly life” are being made very swiftly.
Kings of the East.
There is something mentioned in the quoted verse of the Bible in the beginning of this article that is very interesting and opens up the doors to consider the prophecies in Ahadith. Let’s take a look at that verse again:
“The sixth angel emptied his bowl on the great river Euphrates. Its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings of the East….”
Although many claim that the hadith is unauthentic, yet we see many known scholars backing up it as an authentic hadith. The hadith is as follows:
“When you hear the news of Black Flags coming from the East, then, you must join them even if you have to crawl over ice (to reach them)”
