These scientists extracted particular features from the Four Rivers of the Garden in order to elaborate their findings. In addition to Judaism, there were several discussions concerning this issue in the Islamic religious texts. This comparative study endeavored to investigate the issue of ‘the Four Rivers of Eden’ in Judaism and Islam based on their scriptures and religious scholars’ views.
