Mount Judi - Turkey
In recent years, there have been several attempts to find the Prophet Noah (PBUH), Ark. These attempts will possibly continue until we have the precise answers we wish to have. Mount Judi refers to a Place of Descent the location where the Prophet Noah (PBUH) Ark came to rest after the Great Flood by the command of Allah. Mount Judi is also called, Cudi, Guti, and Kutu have significant history in Islam and Christian. The Mount is situated in south-east Turkey, nearby Syrian and Iraq Borders. This mountain is more than 7,000 feet high and near the edge of the Ararat mountain region.
Hazrat Noah (A.S) has a big life span of 950 years. His longevity was a miracle bestowed by Allah. The geologist said: At Mount Judi, there are many water sedimentary rock which formations formed by water flooding. Hence the made of sedimentary cretaceous water laid rock, which means it was formed by the flood waters and is not a post-flood formation”. The Qu’ranic and Bible agree with a few variations of the final resting place of the Ark. The Holy Qu’ran says: Prophet Noah (PBUH) built a massive Ark and asked his companions to join him. The people who joined him were saved.
The water started gushing out from all side, followed by a large number of other springs as well as a heavy downpour from the sky. Since probably they're descendants afterward dispersed to and settled down in, different parts of the world, they transmitted and preserved the traditions of this great Flood. The 9th-century Arab geographer ‘Alī al-Mas’ūdī spot where it came to rest could be seen in his time. Masudi also said that the Ark began its a journey at Kufa in central Iraq, and sailed to Mecca, where it circled the Kaaba, before finally traveling to Judi.
However, as per Genesis, the massive ark stayed at Mountains of Ararat. But according to Qur’an Surah Hud 11:44, the final resting place of the vessel was called Mount Judi.
“Than the word went forth: “O earth! Swallow up thy water, and O sky! Withhold (thy rain)!” and the water abated, and the matter was ended. The Ark rested on Mount Judi, and the word went forth: “Away with those who do wrong!” [11:44]
The Mount Judi became popular when German Geologist Dr. Friedrich Bender discovered bits of Wood and asphalts on Judi’s in 1953. Therefore, a continuous debate among true believers as to where Prophet Noah (PBUH) Ark? Is it Mount Ararat, or Mount Judi? One picture is very famous online and thought to be the current remains of the Ark on Mount Judi.
The Prophet Noah (A.S) Ark was considered a myth for a long time. It seems impossible that a Great Flood can’t have happened. However, Qur’an says
“It was a Global Flood destroyed Noah’s Nation as they were Rebellious”.
However, the Bible says the Ark landed on Mount Ararat, but this is a volcanic mount that came into existence after the flood. There are countless efforts made to find the Ark on Mount Ararat but all proved wrong.
One should think of the magnificence and splendor of the divine sultanate that commands and rules the earth and the sky like that. Who can oppose such power? The water was drained and the command was fulfilled. That is, the command and judgment of torture were carried out. Those who were destined to drown drowned; those who were destined to be saved were saved.
The task was fulfilled. The Ark settled on Mount Judi. Moreover, no such evidence for a universal flood. Also, traditions about a great flood have been popular among all communities of the world down the ages. Read More – Lanzarote Vineyards – The Magical Black Gardens
