Rivers flow together and there nature came to be known in the start of the 20th century, where as Allah mentioned the nature of these two rivers in the Holy Qur'an around 1400 years ago.

These two river flow together and finally settle down in the Ocean. The taste of one river is extremely sweet whereas the taste of other river is the opposite (that is bitter) but they never mix. There is nothing in between these rivers which stops them from mixing together but it's is the will and order of the Almighty Allah.

سُوۡرَةُ الرَّحمٰن

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

رَبُّ ٱلۡمَشۡرِقَيۡنِ وَرَبُّ ٱلۡمَغۡرِبَيۡنِ (١٧)

فَبِأَىِّ ءَالَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبَانِ (١٨)

مَرَجَ ٱلۡبَحۡرَيۡنِ يَلۡتَقِيَانِ (١٩)

بَيۡنَہُمَا بَرۡزَخٌ۬ لَّا يَبۡغِيَانِ (٢٠)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Lord of the two Easts, and Lord of the two Wests! (17)

Which is it, of the favours of your Lord, that ye deny? (18)

He hath loosed the two seas. They meet. (19)

There is a barrier between them. They encroach not (one upon the other). (20)

سُوۡرَةُ الفُرقان

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

۞ وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى مَرَجَ ٱلۡبَحۡرَيۡنِ هَـٰذَا عَذۡبٌ۬ فُرَاتٌ۬ وَهَـٰذَا مِلۡحٌ أُجَاجٌ۬ وَجَعَلَ بَيۡنَہُمَا بَرۡزَخً۬ا وَحِجۡرً۬ا مَّحۡجُورً۬ا (٥٣


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

And He it is Who hath given independence to the two seas (though they meet); one palatable, sweet, and the other saltish, bitter; and hath set a bar and a forbidding ban between them. (53)
