The Meeting of Water is the confluence between the Rio Negro, a river with dark (almost black-looking) water, and the sandy-colored Amazon River, as the upper section of the Amazon is known in Brazil upriver of this confluence,
Two rivers’ waters run side by side without mixing. It is one of the main tourist attractions of Manaus, Brazil.
Modern science has discovered that where the 2 seas meet, there is a barrier. This barrier divides the 2 seas so that they do not mix. Each sea has its own salinity, density and temperature.
But The Holy Quran has mentioned that 1400 years ago,there is a barrier between two seas that meet and that they do not transgress.
“He released the two seas, meeting [side by side]; Between them is a barrier [so] neither of them transgresses. So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?” [Surah Ar Rahman, 55:1-21]
The Holy Quran is not only full of miracles but it is a miracle in itself. In its verses Allah, the Supreme Creator (or God Almighty) has invited all intelligent human beings to ponder over His marvelous creations and gain knowledge. Modern science is discovering slowly the events/objects that have been revealed to Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) over 1400 years ago through the Holy Quran.
It is claimed Jacques Cousteau had converted to Islam after witnessing a “miracle mentioned in the Qur’an that waters of different salinity do not mix because there is an invisible barrier between the two”.
