“Seeding of clouds requires that they contain supercooled liquid water—that is, liquid water colder than zero degrees Celsius. Introduction of a substance such as silver iodide, which has a crystalline structure similar to that of ice, will induce freezing (heterogeneous nucleation). Dry ice [frozen carbon dioxide] or propane expansion cools the air to such an extent that ice crystals can nucleate spontaneously from the vapor phase. ... In mid-latitude clouds, the usual seeding strategy has been predicated upon the fact that the equilibrium vapor pressure is lower over water than over ice. When ice particles form in supercooled clouds, this fact allows the ice particles to grow at the expense of liquid droplets. If there is sufficient growth, the particles become heavy enough to fall as snow (or, if melting occurs, rain) from clouds that otherwise would produce no precipitation. This process is known as "static" seeding. Seeding of warm-season or tropical cumuliform (convective) clouds seeks to exploit the latent heat released by freezing. This strategy of "dynamic" seeding assumes that the additional latent heat adds buoyancy, strengthens updrafts, ensures more low-level convergence, and ultimately causes rapid growth of properly selected clouds. Cloud seeding chemicals may be dispersed by aircraft or by dispersion devices located on the ground (generators).” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_seeding)
“In Kansas, clouds sometimes promise rain and fail to deliver—or produce crop-damaging hail. To coax moisture from the clouds, the Western Kansas Weather Modification Program sends out its planes. Wing-borne burners produce a silver iodide smoke, which rides updrafts into the sub-zero heart of certain storm clouds. At that altitude, the silver iodide particles provide nuclei around which cloud water can freeze. When they're heavy enough, the grains of ice fall—melting into rain on the way down. In theory, the strategy not only increases rainfall but also keeps moisture from being swept high into clouds and forming hail. …” (http://www7.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0506/feature5/gallery5.html)
“He would come to the people and invite them (to a wrong religion) and they would affirm their faith in him and respond to him. He would then give command to the sky and there would be rainfall upon the earth and it would grow crops. Then in the evening, their posturing animals would come to them with their humps very high and their udders full of milk and their flanks stretched.”
(Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 7015)
“He would then walk through the waste land and say to it: Bring forth your treasures, and the treasures would come out…” (Sahih Muslim, Book 041, Number 7015; reported by an-Nawwas ibn Sam'an)
One of his (Dajjal’s) astonishing deeds is this: He will enter the sea three times a day; one of his arms is long. With his long arm he will lean on the bottom of the sea, and with his other hand he will sweep up and catch what he wishes from among the fishes in the deeps... (Reported by Abu Nuaym [ra]).

|Trawl nets, resemble large, cone-shaped, wide-mouthed (30 meters or so wide) bags. Wooden struts are used to keep the mouth open when the net is first cast into the sea. These are connected to the trawler boat by steel cables. Bottom trawling is generally used in places where the seabed is largely flat. Dropped from the trawler boat, the trawl net is dragged along behind it for some 1.5 to 3 hours and scours the seabed, catching all the fish it encounters. It is then raised using a winch and the fish inside unloaded on deck. Once the fish have been cleaned and washed, they are packed in ice in the ship’s hold. On some very large and highly advanced trawlers, the fish are loaded into freezing apparatus once they have been cleaned. These boats are able to remain at sea and therefore fish for more prolonged periods.|
IT IS POSSIBLE TO LIVE LONGER
Turkish daily Radikal, 21 April 2002
… The ‘Industrial revolution’ in the late 19th century and scientific advances led to extraordinary progress in the field of medicine in the last century. This has prolonged human life expectancy by 50% … The frontiers of middle age have been put back from 40-50 to 60-70. As we enter the new millennium it has emerged that certain diseases are caused by defects in genes, themselves the secret of life. Biotechnological progress is now at the point of being able to rectify gene defects.
|IS THERE A LIMIT TO HUMAN LIFE EXPECTANCY?
Turkish daily Hürriyet, 18 March 2004
According to some scientists, children born today will be able live up the age of 150, and some are of the opinion that there is no limit to human life expectancy. Human life expectancy regularly increases by 2 years every decade. This means that in 2150 the average life expectancy will be 122.5, and people aged 150 will be regarded as quite normal. There are currently some 40,000 people aged over 100 in the USA, although the number was only around 2,300 in the 1950s. James Vaupel, from the Max Planck Demographic Research Institute in Rostock in Germany, suggests that the number of centenarians will double in developed countries every 10 years. http://webarsiv.hurriyet.com.tr/2004/03/18/429832.asp

The Dajjal will say, "I am the Lord of the worlds... It is by my leave that this Sun follows its course, if you wish, I can halt its progress!” They will respond by asking him to halt it. At this he will imprison the Sun, and will make a day resemble a month and a week a year. (Reported from Nu’aym ibn Hammad and Hakim ibn Mas'ud (ra)) (Signs of Qiyamah, 10th edition, p. 219, 220)

|I swear to Allah, in whose power my life is, that Doomsday will not take place until savage animals talk to human beings, until a person’s voice and shoes speak to him, and until people tell him what they are doing.”
(Imam Sha’rani, Death, Doomsday, Resurrection, p. 471 )
|“Doomsday will not take place until the handle of a whip, his shoe lace speak to a person, until there is such abundance that a person will find nobody to give alms to, until rivers and streams flow through Arab lands.”|
It is reported from Ibn al-Munadi (ra) that:
"He will hold the clouds in his right hand, extend to where the Sun sets, walk on the ocean, and yet the water will come only up to his heels… There will be smoke in front of him and a green mountain behind… He will issue such a cry that all those between the earth and the skies will hear it... He will command the soil and it will grow crops... " (Signs of Qiyamah, 10th edition, p. 219)
