    Marib Civilization !


    This ancient city is mentioned in the Quran, where it's noted, "for the natives of Sheba, there was indeed a sign in their dwelling-place, a garden on their left and a garden on their right.

    "We said to them, 'Eat of what your lord has given you and render thanks to Him. Pleasant is your land and forgiving is your lord." Farmers were watering their farms for five complete days. The dam was the wonder of the city though historians spoke differently about the time when it was built, and about the builder. Some says it was Sheba dhu Yashjub.


    ViewZone's Expedition caught this image of the ruins of Old Mareb. The ancient city is now surrounded by a harsh desert and is virtually uninhabited.
    It was built with stones to hold rainwater and remained for a long time. But people were proud of their power and became tyrants, so God destroyed them and their dam.
    In his book "Green Yemen, The Cradle of Civilizations," Mohammed bin Ali Al-Hawli notes, "the explosion of the Mareb dam left a deep mark on the Yemenis and Arab peninsula, and was considered as a great calamity that changed the political and natural history of "the green".

    As a result, tribes migrated to different territories. The Quran adds, "lord, make our journeys longer. They sinned against their souls. So we made their fate by sword, and scattered them throughout the land. Surely, there is a sign in this for every stead fast, thankful man! (Surah 34:19). They dwelt in Mesopotamia and Syria where they established the kingdoms of Hira and Ghassan. Gorhom, the tribe, and settled also in Meccan, where they became custodians of the sacred house until Qusei slo Kilab, Mohammed's grandfather took custody. Aws and Khezrej settled in Yathrib and later supported the prophet after migration.

    Now, Mareb has harsh weather, with dust and moving sands, and Yemenis are building a new Mareb on the remains of Selhin Palace, Hejr and Nashib, keeping in mind they are the descendants of those who built a great ancient capital, the lovely Mareb.

    and wait me with more .......​

    The Marib Dam
    As the Sabaean kingdom developed, they built a huge earth filled dam in the second half of the 6th century BC to hold back some of the water that came down the wadi. From the lake that developed behind the dam, they developed a splendid irrigation system that watered about 25, 0000 acres.
    During the years that I lived in Yemen, I had the opportunity to visit the ruins of the quarter-mile-long Marib Dam. I also viewed the new modern dam as it was built and the huge water reservoir that filled up behind the dam. When the ancient reservoir re-filled with water, hundreds of old dry wells and water canals scattered through the desert below the dam suddenly filled with water again. The ancient farmlands, that for centuries had lain deserted, were suddenly usable again.

    This reminds me of something I read previously on the YSAA.org posted by Saqaf. You might find this depressing, but the old dam system could help Yemen a lot about now

    As Quoted from the 2006 World Development Report, page 144

    Yemen Under Stress
    Water and poverty are closely linked in Yemen, which has one of the world’s lowest freshwater availability levels—198 cubic metres a person—and one of the highest rates of water use for agriculture. Worsening the scarcity are spatial and temporal variations. And with a population projected to double by 2025, water availability per capita will fall by one-third.
    The physical and social symptoms of acute water stress are already apparent. Groundwater extraction started to exceed recharge 20 years ago. Around the city of Sana’a aquifer extraction rates are 2.5 times the recharge rates. Growing urban demand is coming up against the barrier of agricultural use. Unregulated extraction in rural areas (of the 13,000 wells in operation, only 70 are state-owned) and the development of private markets for transferring water to urban users now pose acute threats to smallholder agriculture—heightened by uncertain customary water rights. In other cities such as Ta’iz urban tensions over water use and groundwater exploitation have led to violent confrontation.
    Efforts to recharge the aquifers are being undermined by uncontrolled extraction, notably by private tanker companies delivering water to the city. About twothirds of water in the city comes from private sources. At the current rate of depletion water stress will reduce the viability of rural livelihoods on a large scale.
