Hadees Regarding Major Turning Point Before the Day of Judgement ----
Climate Change ----
The hadeeth is:
It was narrated from Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (PEACE BE UPON HIM) said: “The Hour will not begin until the land of the Arabs once again becomes meadows and rivers.” Narrated by Muslim (157).
Meadows refers to spacious land with a great deal of vegetation.
Dr. Zaghloul al-Najjaar says:
This hadeeth is a scientific miracle that describes a natural fact that was not understood by scientists until the late twentieth century, when it was proven by definitive evidence that the Arabian Peninsula was meadows and rivers in ancient times. Climate studies have also indicated that the arid desert is now on its way to becoming meadows and rivers again, because the earth throughout its long history passes through climatic changes that take place gradually over long periods of time, or they may be sudden and swift.
Climate studies indicate that we are coming into a new rainy period, the evidence of which is the shift of the ice-cap in the northern hemisphere towards the south, and a noticeable fall in winter temperatures.
The fact that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) referred to this ice age in his hadeeth “until the land of the Arabs once again becomes meadows and rivers” is proof of his Prophethood, and shows that he was always connected to divine revelation, and was taught by the Creator of the heavens and the earth.

In just three hours, Saudi Arabia's second largest city was inundated with 111 millimeters of rain, increasing from the 90 mm recorded in four hours during the Nov. 25, 2009 flash floods.
Mansour Al-Mazrouie, head of the meteorology department at the King Abdulaziz University (KAU), blamed climate change for the heavy rains in Jeddah. The average amount of rain during the winter months (November to January) is about 51 millimeters.
--- Eyewitnesses told Arab News that floodwater was turning streets into rivers once again, and that the water from a broken dam was flooding nearby neighborhoods.
Flooding was so Strong that Cars + Heavy Trucks were floating like pencil. ----
here is National Geographic Article Back in 2009 about Sahara Desert and Middle East Deserts becoming Green
Sahara Desert Greening Due to Climate Change?
Scientists are now seeing signals that the Sahara desert and surrounding regions are greening due to increasing rainfall.
these rains could revitalize drought-ravaged regions, reclaiming them for farming communities.
This desert-shrinking trend is a return to conditions that turned the Sahara into a lush savanna some 12,000 years ago.
The study suggests huge increases in vegetation in areas including central Chad and western Sudan.
The transition may be occurring because hotter air has more capacity to hold moisture, which in turn creates more rain
"The water-holding capacity of the air is the main driving force,"
ground surveys suggest recent vegetation change is firmly rooted.
In the eastern Sahara area of southwestern Egypt and northern Sudan,
new trees—such as acacias—are flourishing
"Shrubs are coming up and growing into big shrubs.
This is completely different from having a bit more tiny grass,"
"The nomads there told me there was never as much rainfall as in the past few years," Kröpelin said. "They have never seen so much grazing land."
"Before, there was not a single scorpion, not a single blade of grass," he said.
"Now you have people grazing their camels in areas which may not have been used for hundreds or even thousands of years. You see birds, ostriches, gazelles coming back, even sorts of amphibians coming back," he said.
"The trend has continued for more than 20 years. It is indisputable."
An explosion in plant growth has been predicted
