Title: I heard that there will be gold coming out of the river the Euphrates river, is this true?

Question

Answer

Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) mentioned that among the signs of
Qiyaamat, 'the Euphrates and Tigris will bring up pillars of Gold.' He also
advised that people should stay away from that as people will fight for the
gold and many people will be killed. (Mishkaat vol.2)

And Allah Taãla Knows Best.
