Is The Euphrates Mentioned In The Bible And The Quran?

Assalamu alaykum, wa Rahmatu Allah. Yes, the Euphrates is mentioned within the Bible and the Holy Qur'an. And there are many who attend Majalis Al-Husayn, alayhi as-salam, without knowing just how important, how sacred and how virtuous the Euphrates is.

It doesn't just flow through Turkey, Syria and Iraq. That's not why it's so important. It's mentioned within the Bible and within the Holy Qur'an because it's seen as one of the Springs of Paradise. It's seen as being sweet and cooling. And so within the Qur'an and within the Bible, you see the references there in the Bible. In the chapter of Jeremiah, Chapter 46, there is the discussion of the Euphrates.

And in the Qur'an, in Chapter 25, Verse 53, again you have got the discussion of the Euphrates or the discussion of the word 'Furat' (25:53). So this particular river was also seen as the Mahr of Fatimat az-Zahraʾ, alayha as-salam. And with Imam Sahib al-Zaman, you will find that this river will flow freely in Kufa, for everyone to drink from. The reality is that whenever we remember the Euphrates, we remember the fact that many animals drank from the Euphrates and tyrants had access to it. Yet the grandson of the Holy Prophet, peace be upon him and his family, was lying thirsty there, with his brother alongside him.

Wa as-salamu alaykum, wa Rahmatu Allah.
