It is in the middle east. The Dead Sea is such that anyone who does not know to swim can still go in the middle of that sea, without any protection. Because The Dead Sea is such that nobody drowns there insha'Allah. subhanallah !!!

I don't think so.

What I know is that Prophet Lot (pbuh) was sent in the town of Sodom somewhere in/near Palestine.

I saw an interesting program on that once. Some scientists were asked to find Sodom and Gomorah on the shore of the dead sea. When they went down into the water in a (very heavy) submarine, they found a strange object that stuck up from the bottom of the sea bed, when all of the rest was flat. They didn't manage to come to any conclusions about it though.

There is a lot of methane around the Dead Sea. Lots of scientists have suggested that lightning or siesmic activity ignited this gas and blew the cities and the surrounding area into the sea. The showers of stones would probably have been rubble from the explosion.

I don't think so.

The Dead Sea is near Palestine, on the border between Palestine and Jordan.

That is the place where the people of Lut were. They were homosexuals and they have recieved the worst punsihment from Allah out of all the nations that were destroyed. 3 evil torments together, the Saihah (evil cry), being flipped over and slammed down, and an evil rain of baked clay.

Today, the West are the ONLY people after the people of Lut who are not only accepting these people and their pervertedness but even making it lawful and something to be proud of and letting them get married and commit this evil in the open without any shame. And homosexuality isnt something genetic because Allah says in the Quran,

28. And (remember) Lout (Lot), when he said to his people: "You commit Al-Fahishah (sodomy the worst sin) which none has preceded you in (committing) it in the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns)."

No one commited this evil before them. Had it been genetic, it would have been commited from the time of Adam a.s.


15: 73. So As-Saihah (torment - awful cry, etc.) overtook them at the time of sunrise;

74. And We turned (the towns of Sodom in Palestine) upside down and rained down on them stones of baked clay.

75. Surely! In this are signs, for those who see (or understand or learn the lessons from the Signs of All�h).

76. And verily! They (the cities) were right on the highroad (from Makkah to Syria i.e. the place where the Dead Sea is now) .

77. Surely! Therein is indeed a sign for the believers.


25: 40. And indeed they have passed by the town [of Prophet Lout (Lot)] on which was rained the evil rain. Did they (disbelievers) not then see it (with their own eyes)? Nay ! But they used not to expect for any resurrection.

27: 58. And We rained down on them a rain (of stones). So evil was the rain of those who were warned.

Must listen lecture:

Story of Prophet Lut by Anwar Al Awlaki

Another historical miracle of the Quran. Whilst the Bible says the towns were destroyed by fire and brimstone, the Quran saya that they were turned upside down and showered with baked clay, which is more fitting with the popular hypothesis of an explosion followed by a landslide into the Dead Sea*.

*This is by no means a unanimously accepted hypothesis, there are a number of others, which are not as popular. There is, of course, the sceptical hypothesis which states that the towns never even existed.

The Dead Sea is like a lake. It is the lowest lake in the world, about 400 metres below sea level and contains the saltiest water in the world. This is because several streams and rivers carry minerals into the lake, but no rivers flow back out of it. All the minerals, including salt, therefore, accumulate.

The Dea Sea contains six times more salt than normal sea water. The salt makes it easy for anyone to float insha'Allah, because the body becomes buoyant. If you happen to visit the Dead Sea, you could lie on your back in the water and read a book without fear of sinking.

That's because the seven wonders are man-made, the Dead Sea is a natural formation. And there are loads of other weird places like that that are not world wonders. The Soda lakes, the Guiana Highlands, the Stone Forest, the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, and loads more.
