The Sea of Galilee, or as it is called in Israel “Lake Kinneret,” is in fact the only natural water reservoir in the country.

This lake has great historical significance and is supposed to provide the water for most of the population in Israel.

However, in recent years its water level has dropped sharply. Is there true cause for concern?

[Mayer Melman, Boat Owner]:
“I remember how its color used to be a stronger blue and the water was cleaner. Can you see the water line? Almost five-and-a-half meters are missing.”

Fisherman from Tiberias]:
“All this was full of water. It was full. Seven, eight years ago this was its maximum height, and slowly it began to drop.”

We turned to the authority responsible for providing water to the population, hoping to learn why is there so much less water in Lake Kinneret today.

[Uri Shor, Water Authority Spokesman]:
“It’s simply that there is less rain. Something has changed, something has happened. We’re talking about the whole region. The whole region is thirsty for water… I am very worried by the lack of rain and about the drop of water level both in Lake Kinneret and in other water sources. This is the seventh year in a row without substantial rain. We’re at the end of January in a clear, beautiful day, with no rain.”

We learned further that the whole region of the Middle East shares the same plight as that of Lake Kinneret.

[Uri Shor, Water Authority Spokesman]:
“The whole drainage basin of the Kinneret is a very large area that includes a part of Israel, part of Lebanon, and a part of Syria. This means that all of this huge area that is supposed to nourish this lake also suffers from lack of rain.”

We expressed our concern, asking whether the situation is indeed so serious.

[Uri Shor, Water Authority Spokesman]:
“It’s been a long while since we had reached the bottom red line of the Kinneret and are beneath it. This is a line we wish very hard not to have reached at all. The bottom red line is the water level under which processes begin to take place, ones that are causing damage to the quality of the water and danger to this whole water source.”

The reduction in water quantity of the Sea of Galilee has many implications, pertaining to more than just drinking water.

[Uri Shor, Water Authority Spokesman]:
“Part of the concern of reaching low levels is that the whole fabric of fauna and flora may sustain permanent damage.”

And indeed, fishermen that we met seemed to be deeply worried.

[Fisherman from Tiberias]:
“This situation has serious effects on the fish. They should be coming close to the shore to lay their eggs, but they are not coming now.”

[Meyer Melman, Boat Owner]:
“When there was water and it was cleaner you could drop a net anywhere and catch fish, huge quantities of them. Now the fish are extinct, everything here starts to disappear.”

People’s livelihood is affected, too.

[Meyer Melman, Boat Owner]:
“People in Tiberias used to make their living mostly from fishing. Today, sadly, there are no fish, the water level is going down, the old fishermen are tired. Only a few have remained here.”

And what does Kinneret’s Water Authority Spokesman think of the current condition?

[Uri Shor, Water Authority Spokesman]:
“it’s obvious that when the water level is dropping and the level of saltiness goes up, changes would occur in all aspects of life in the lake and certainly that could result in a total reversal wherein the lake would become a dead lake. There is no denying that this is a big problem, and I am very worried.”

The Israeli media sounds the alarm time and again: "There is no water," "Water consumption should be reduced." Since the main source of water in Israel is the Sea of Galilee, we went out to investigate and indeed found a very sad sight.

The Sea of Galilee, or as it is called in Israel "Lake Kinneret," is in fact the only natural water reservoir in the country.

This lake has great historical significance and is supposed to provide the water for most of the population in Israel.

Then Ya'jooj & Majooj will emerge and surge forth in all their fury. When those from among them who constitute the first part of their army pass the lake of Tiberias (Sea of Galilee) which is in northern Palestine, they will drink up all the water of that lake and by the time those that constitute the latter part of that same army pass the lake, they will say, "There used to be water here (long ago)".

Wow! :shock: This needs to be moved to the breaking news section!

A part of a hadith is taken From Sahih Muslim
Book 041, Number 7028:


When Allah"s Messenger (may peace be upon him) had finished his prayer, he sat on the pulpit smiling and said: Every worshipper should keep sitting at his place. He then said: Do you know why I had asked you to assemble? They said: Allah and His Messenger know best. He said: By Allah. I have not made you assemble for exhortation or for a warning, but I have detained you here, for Tamim Dari, a Christian, who came and accepted Islam, told me something, which agrees with what I was-telling, you about the Dajjal. He narrated to me that he had sailed in a ship along with thirty men of Bani Lakhm and Bani Judham and had been tossed by waves in the ocean for a month. Then these (waves) took them (near) the land within the ocean (island) at the time of sunset. They sat in a small side-boat and entered that Island. There was a beast with long thick hair (and because of these) they could not distinguish his face from his back. They said: Woe to you, who can you be? Thereupon it said: I am al-Jassasa. They said: What is al-Jassasa? And it said: O people, go to this person in the monastery as he is very much eager to know about you. He (the narrator) said: When it named a person for us we were afraid of it lest it should be a Devil. Then we hurriedly went on till we came to that monastery and found a well-built person there with his hands tied to his neck and having iron shackles between his two legs up to the ankles. We said: Woe be upon thee, who are you? And he said: You would soon come to know about me. but tell me who are you. We said: We are people from Arabia and we embarked upon a boat but the sea-waves had been driving us for one month and they brought as near this island. We got Into the side-boats and entered this island and here a beast met us with profusely thick hair and because of the thickness of his hair his face could not be distinguished from his back. We said: Woe be to thee, who are you? It said: I am al- Jassasa. We said: What is al-Jassasa? And it said: You go to this very person in the monastery for he is eagerly waiting for you to know about you. So we came to you in hot haste fearing that that might be the Devil. He (that chained person) said: Tell me about the date-palm trees of Baisan. We &aid: About what aspect of theirs do you seek information? He said: I ask you whether these trees bear fruit or not.

We said: Yes Thereupon he said: I think these would not bear fruits. He said: Inform me about the lake of Tabariyya? We said: Which aspect of it do you want to know? He said: Is there water in it? They said: There is abundance of water in it. Thereupon he said: I think it would soon become dry. He again said: Inform me about the spring of Zughar. They said: Which aspect of it you want to know? He (the chained person) said: Is there water in it and does it irrigate (the land)? We said to him: Yes, there is abundance of water in it and the inhabitants (of Medina) irrigate (land) with the help of it
, He said: Inform me about the unlettered Prophet; what has he done? We said: He has come out from Mecca and has settled In Yathrib (Medina). He said: Do the Arabs fight against him? We said: Yes. He said: How did he deal with him? We informed him that he had overcome those in his neighbourhood and they had submitted themselves before him. Thereupon he said to us: Had it actually happened? We said: Yes. Thereupon he said: If it is so that is better for them that they should show obedience to him. I am going to tell you about. myself and I am Dajjal and would be soon permitted to get out and so I shall get out and travel in the land, and will not spare any town where I would not stay for forty nights except Mecca and Medina as these two (places) are prohibited (areas) for me and I would not make an attempt to enter any one of these two. An angel with a sword in his hand would confront me and would bar my way and there would be angels to guard every passage leading to it; then Allah"s Messenger (may peace be upon him) striking the pulpit with the help of the end of his staff said: This implies Taiba meaning Medina. Have I not, told you an account (of the Dajjal) like this? "The people said: Yes, and this account narrated by Tamim Dari was liked by me for it corroborates the account which I gave to you in regard to him (Dajjal) at Medina and Mecca. Behold he (Dajjal) is in the Syrian sea (Mediterranian) or the Yemen sea (Arabian sea). Nay, on the contrary, he As In the east, he is in the east, he is in the east, and he pointed with his hand towards the east. I (Fatima bint Qais) said: I preserved It In my mind (this narration from Allah"s Messenger (may peace be upon him).


The part that I colored is the one to be looked at. Rest is the conversation of Tamim Dari with the Dajjal and feel free to read it :)


So the sign is fulfilled then. The sea will be soon dried.

Allah knows best when it will take to dry up. But it is drying at an alarming rate. Expect the Dajjal to be really close. His system is flourishing already and we are one of the few minorities who are counter-attacking the temptations.

To my great astonishment, the ulemas around the world don't seem concerned about diverging this message to the ummah and in Jum'a time???

Here in Mauritius the people are REALLY sleeping like rocks in a dark never ending night. While I talked to many people of the release of gog and magog, long ago, they seemed so lazy to understand what I have to say and continues mingling in world affairs as if they still believe that those are small dwarf alien like creatures with small ears...Only 1 man is propagating this da'wa here ...

May ALLAH guide us all

So true akhi, this whole concept needs to be addressed in Jumuah so that those that are still in a deep slumber can wake up. May Allah guide us to the true straight path. Ameen

I believe there was an earlier post on this subject. Imran Hosain talks about the Sea of Galilee in his book An Islamic View of Gog and Megog in the Modern Age. You can download the book for free here http://www.imranhosein.org/books/131-an ... n-age.html

The Nubian Sandstone Aquifer in Libya is estimated to have the equivalent of '500 years of river Nile flow of water'. Could this source be used to resupply the dwindling Sea of Galilee? This would then push the predicted year of arrival of Imam Mahdi (AS) closer to the year(s) predicted by Prof Tahir ul Qadri and also Sheikh Mujaddid Alf Thani (ra) (see thread below)?

tahirul qadri is not a real scholar,he nowdays has canadian nationality and works for american interests,so no one in islamic world takes his words seriously when he claims that imam mehdi will arrive after 1000 years!!!
he is just saying this so the spirit of jihad that is lit in muslims hearts due to imminent arrival of mehdis might be extinguished somehow.
even a child can tell you after reading ahaadeeth that mehdis arrival is very near..not 1 or 2 thousand yeasrs away like tahirul qadri says,,,same tahirul qadri daily gives fatw against jihad but never ever bothered to give fatwa against americans massacre of muslims,
all major islamic scholars agree that end is near.

Tahirul Qadri is against mostly prominent leaders of Islam. He never liked Dr Israr Ahmed (May Allah bless his soul), Dr Zakir Naik and likewise are not in his good books. What he is saying about Mahdi is actually telling to forget about Mahdi(A.S) or in other words dont think about revival of Islam. You can imagine about his wealth where he gets his financing. Also he is creating and encouraging BID'AH (innovation). He is no where close to good scholars.

Im not too sure about Prof Tahir ul Qadri.

The views of Sheikh Mujaddid Alf Thani (ra) are more significant.

To me the signs are all there for Major signs appearing in the next quarter century or so.

Allah SWT knows best.
