Abstract

This paper aims to illustrate some important dimensions of the natural phenomenon embodied two bodies of water flowing together which has been mentioned in the Holy Qur’ān at different places, indicating certain properties and aspects of water. Relevant Qur’ānic Scripture encompasses the apparent aspects of the phenomenon including the hidden wonders. During the study, the qualitative approach has adopted using exegetical view along with modern data regarding this topic. The phenomenon has also been elaborated by the illustration of jointly flowing rivers observed at Kund Park near Attock Bridge Khairabad (KPK Pakistan) in addition to various other global examples regarding confluence of major bodies of water. This paper endorsed that the phenomenon is beneficial for the whole biological kingdom and humanity with the lesson of global mutual co-existence. This study may cause to broaden one’s mental horizon when we consider it in the current contextual domain with respect to the centuries ago revealed Scripture. It enables the scholars to interpret Scripture in contemporary context delivering more comprehensible dimensions and lucid tone to lead human being towards Ultimate Reality.
