The slow moving fire that will illuminate the necks of the camels described in the hadiths refers to the oil wells in the Middle East
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar’s live talk on March 1st, 2012
Our Prophet (saas) says: “A fire will emerge, soon” “that will illuminate the necks of the camels in Basra”. Abu Ya’l‚ and Imam Ahmed relate the following hadith:“ A fire will emerge from Habs al-Sayl.” Always the Middle East region, the oil-rich regions, “and will move slowly, like the gait of a camel” very slowly, fairly slowly, because a camel walks slowly but it is said, “fairly slowly”, “it will move fairly slowly.” “ a fire that illuminate the necks of the camels in Basra from one of the valleys of Hejaz.” This time there is mention to Hejaz, Saudi Arabia, the oil-richest regions: Basra, Saudi Arabia. The hadith already specifies the locations of the oil regions prior to 1400 years. The reported regions are all oil-rich regions. “The Day of Reckoning will not come until a fire that will illuminate the necks of the camels in Basra flows.” “Fire flows.” What is a flowing fire? Oil, insha’Allah. Notice now what is related: “It has a neck like a camel’sneck and it moves very slowly.” Let us show that image.
Something related with oil; now this is an apparatus to drill oil which is employed in every corner of the world.
It moves very slowly. Note that with its apparance, head and body it resembles a camel. It steadily drills oil with dead slow, weighty movements.
Our Prophet (saas) has provided a detailed description of the End Times, certainly one of the most important periods in world history. He described the social, political and economic developments that will take place, the natural events, people’s appearances, their moral values and the technological advances of the age. One of the reports by Rasulullah (saas) regarding the End Times concerns the oil wells in the Middle East:
Abu Ya’l‚ and Imam Ahmed relate the following hadith: “A fire will emerge from Habs-u Sayl (al-Huseyni) and will move slowly, like the gait of a camel...”
The Musnad al-Firdaws relates from Umar (r.a.): “The Day of Reckoning will not come until a fire that will illuminate the necks of the camels in Basra emerges from one of the valleys of Hejaz!” (Portents of Doomsday, Muhammed b. Rasul al-HusaynÓ al-BarzanjÓ, p. 85)
The hadith refers to Hejaz and Basra, and speaks of a fire that will illuminate camels’ necks and move very slowly
The mechanical arms of the drills used in oil wells look exactly like the necks of camels, and one feature of these machines is that they move very slowly and constantly produce oil.
We are all familiar with the flames that emerge from oil wells.
Those flames illuminate the machines in question, just as described in the hadith.
In another hadith on the same subject our Prophet (saas) refers to Hejaz and Basra:
HEJAZ AND BASRA
“A fire will emerge from there (Hejaz); it will illuminate the necks of the camels in Basra...” (Portents of Doomsday, Muhammad b. Rasul al-HusaynÓ al-BarjanjÓ, p. 85)
The Middle East is one of the world’s oil-richest regions. The Gulf of Basra alone contains 2/3 of the world’s oil reserves so far discovered. Research shows that Saudi Arabia alone has proven reserves of 262 billion barrels, representing 25.4% of all the world’s oil. Iraq has 11% of the world’s oil reserves, the United Arab Emirates 9.6%, Kuwait 9.2%, Iran 8.6%, and other OPEC countries have 13% while the remaining 22.6% belongs to the other countries of the world.
The way that our Prophet (saas) foretold, 1,400 years ago, how the Middle East would have rich oil reserves and that this oil would be extracted by machines resembling the necks of camels is both a most exciting miracle and a great blessing for believers.
