Many of the prophecies that Prophet Muhammad stated 1400 years ago, have come true. One prophecy, concerning the drying of the Euphrates and unearthing gold has yet to come true. This prophecy is a critical prophecy, as the war that is predicted is closely linked to the coming of the Mahdi. Here are some of the prophecies:
- "Soon the river Euphrates will disclose the treasure [the mountain] of gold. So, whoever will be present at that time should not take anything of it." — Sahih Bukhari.
- The Prophet Muhammad said: "The Hour will not come to pass before the river Euphrates dries up to unveil the mountain of gold, for which people will fight. Ninety-nine out of one hundred will die [in the fighting], and every man among them will say: 'Perhaps I may be the only one to remain alive'." — Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim.
- The Prophet Muhammad said: "The Euphrates reveals the treasures within itself. Whoever sees it should not take anything from it".
- "It [the Euphrates] will uncover a mountain of gold [under it]." — Sunan Abi Da'ud.

"The drying up of the Euphrates River have revealed ancient archaeological sites, some of which were unknown until now."
"Ancient buildings have emerged from the river bed in Iraq's western Anbar province as the Euphrates River dries up."
"What once was an enormous reservoir that stretched as far as the eye could see has shrunk an astonishing 90 percent since summer", officials say.
"But because of the receding waters, Ratib has been able to access some sites for the first time — including, for instance, a cliff with a series of pre-Christian tombs carved into its face."
"The river level is very low, it's the lowest it has ever been that we can remember," says fisherman Sa'ad Naji."
"We began looking around the area, and we found clay jars and old bones, coins and even some gold jewelry" he says.
"Cliffs that were once submerged now reveal pre-Christian tombs built into the rock face. "
If Iraq finds major gold reserves, this could be a signal for renewed civil strife between the various tribes there as well as perennially interfering outside powers. All Muslims reading this are reminded not to pursue this gold, as was instructed by the Prophet.
