homeland- Social networking sites in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia were buzzing with a wave of widespread controversy after the circulation of videos and photos that documented a rare and unprecedented phenomenon in the Empty Quarter desert.

The Empty Quarter desert came to life

It is noteworthy that the Empty Quarter desert is the largest “continuous” sandy desert in the world, and occupies the southeastern third of the Arabian Peninsula.

This vast desert is divided between 4 countries: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the Sultanate of Oman and the UAE, and the largest part of it is inside Saudi Arabia.

Saudis documented, through videos posted on Twitter, the massive flow of torrential rain in the Empty Quarter desert, in a rare phenomenon that occurs for the first time.

Where the barren, barren desert turned into an oasis in an unusual scene, after water in large quantities came out of the ground.

Many activists expressed their astonishment at this, wondering about the reason for this great change and the transformation of the “Empty Quarter” into a green oasis with lakes in an unprecedented scene.

Other clips showed the emergence of large lakes in the “Empty Quarter” due to the accumulation of torrential rainwater.

Until the land of the Arabs returns to meadows and rivers.. Is the hour approaching?

Among the many comments that came out on the communication sites regarding this phenomenon, activists linked the transformation of the “Empty Quarter” into a green oasis, and the Prophet’s talk, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, about the barren land of the Arabs, and his prophecy about it, which is a sign of the approaching resurrection.

And the hadith referred to on the authority of the Noble Prophet, and it was mentioned in Sahih Muslim, and talks about that the sa’ does not rise “until the land of the Arabs returns to meadows and rivers,” and the meadows are gardens and green orchards.

The wording of the hadith is as mentioned in the reliable books of the Sunnah as follows: A man pays the zakat of his money and finds no one to accept it from him until the land of the Arabs becomes meadows and rivers.”

A weather expert reveals the scientific explanation

For his part, the Saudi weather expert, Khaled Al-Zaqaq, revealed the interpretation of this phenomenon from his point of view, according to the available studies and data.

In statements to the Saudi channel, Al Arabiya, Dr. Al-Zaqaq said that the world is now living in a new era, in which climate changes have become a universal and indisputable reality.

He explained that these changes, which he referred to, are divided into two parts, and that they will be in the interest of the Arab countries, while in Europe their impact will be negative.

And the Saudi weather expert added: “The Arabian Peninsula will witness these changes from its north to its south and east to its west.”

Al-Zaqqaq cited the remarkable changes that the southwestern part of the Kingdom, which is called the Empty Quarter, is experiencing.

On the reason why this desert was called “the Empty Quarter,” the weather expert explained that this name came in the past due to the absence of life in this region and the lack of rain in it.

He explained: “Recently, it has started to rain every year, and the valleys buried in the sands of the Empty Quarter have come to life again.”

He stressed that “this is conclusive evidence that climate change is inevitably coming.”

Empty Quarter desert

It is noteworthy that the vast desert area we are talking about, known as the Empty Quarter, covers an area of ​​about 430,000 square kilometers.

This desert represents 67.7% of the total sandy assemblages in Saudi Arabia, as it extends a thousand kilometers in length and five hundred kilometers in width.

In the Empty Quarter, sand dunes of 300 meters are constantly moving, making this desert area devoid of fixed features.

Despite the harsh natural environment in this region, it is rich in oil, natural gas, minerals, glass sands and solar energy.
