"He releases the two seas 9meeting) side by side, between the a barrier (so) neither of then transgresses" (Quran, 55: 19-20)
"And it is He who has released (simultaneously) one fresh sweet and one salty and bitter, and He placed between them a barrier and prohibiting partition" (Quran, 25:53)
"It is He Who has let free the two bodies of flowing water: one palatable and sweet, and the other salty and bitter; yet has He made a barrier between them, and a partition that is forbidden to be passed" (Quran, 25:53)
How can it be?
Modern science find this myth while Quran state it in more than 1400 years ago. For a Muslim phenomenon like it was not unusual because all happens with the power of almighty God. This does not mean a Muslim did not want to pay attention to the scientific facts about natural events like these two seas, because of this phenomenon requires a Muslim to do research and take the wisdom and knowledge.
Many of the power of God in the form of phenomena which according to most humans strange, can be a source of science research to generate substantial benefits for human life.
Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity and density. This phenomenon occurs in several places, including the divider between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean at Gibralter. A white bar can also be clearly seen at Cape Point, Cape Peninsula, South Africa where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean. But when the Qur’an speaks about the divider between fresh and salt water, it mentions the existence of “a forbidding partition” with the barrier.
This phenomenon occurs in several places, including Egypt, where the river Nile flows into the Mediterranean Sea. These scientific phenomena mentioned in the Qur’an was also confirmed by Dr. William Hay, a well known marine scientist and Professor of Geological Sciences at the University of Colorado, U.S.A.
