Figure 8 (Click here to enlarge)
The mountains, like pegs, have deep roots embedded in the ground.  (Anatomy of the Earth, Cailleux, p. 220)
Allah Almighty said: "Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs(The Noble Quran, 78:6-7)"
He the Almighty also said: "And He has set firm mountains in the earth so it would not sway (TAMEED) with you....(The Noble Quran, 16:15)"

Here is what TAMEED means:

Several English translations translated it as "sway" or something similar.

Noble Verse(s) 16:15

[016:015]  And He has set up on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you lest it should sway with you; and rivers and roads; that ye may guide yourselves;

تميد (tameed):  تحرك ومال  moved and turned or started going in turns.

  • وفي الحديث: لما خلق الله الارض جعلت تميد فارساها بالجبال  and in the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him:  When Allah Almighty Created the earth, it was made to TAMEED, and then He FIXED the mountains in it to stabilize it.

    Clearly, TAMEED means to sway.  It doesn't mean that it prevents earthquakes as the anti-Islamics lie on the Glorious Quran.  It means to sway, not to shake or to make the earth shaking.  No, it means to sway, or to be out of control, or off in its orbit or path.

    1-  The amazing creation of earth and its relationship with mountains:

    While I was watching the "Al-Jazeera" Arabic news channel through my satellite dish, I saw a documentary program explaining how the mountains were formed/created on earth, and what's their effect on the earth's geology. 

    First let us look at the following Noble Verses from the Noble Quran:

    Let us look at Noble Verse 31:10 "He created the heavens [sky] without any pillars that ye can see; He set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should sway with you; and He scattered through it beasts of all kinds.  we send down rain from the sky, and produce on the earth every kind of noble creature, in pairs."

    Let us look at Noble Verses 16:15-16 "And He has set up on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should sway with you; and rivers and roads; that ye may guide yourselves, and marks and signposts and by the stars (men) guide themselves."

    Let us look at Noble verses 21:30-31 "Do not the unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one unit of creation), before we clove them asunder?  We made from water every living thing.   Will they not then believe?

    And We have set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should sway with them, and We have made therein broad highways (between mountains) for them to pass through: That they may receive guidance."

    Clearly, TAMEED means to sway.  It doesn't mean that it prevents earthquakes as the anti-Islamics lie on the Glorious Quran.  It means to sway, not to shake or to make the earth shaking.  No, it means to sway, or to be out of control, or off in its orbit or path.

      

    Let us look at Noble Verses 13:1-4 "Alif Lam Mim Ra.  These are the signs of the book: that which hath been revealed unto thee from they Lord is the truth; but most men believe not.

    Allah is He Who raised the heavens [sky] without any pillars that ye can see; then He established Himself on the throne (of Authority); He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His Law)!  Each one runs (its course) for a term appointed.   He doth regulate all affairs, explaining the signs in detail, that ye may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord.

    And it is He Who spread out the earth, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and (flowing rivers: and fruit of every kind He made in pairs, two and two: He draweth the night as a veil O'er the day.  Behold, verily in these things there are Signs for those who consider!

    And in the earth are tracts (diverse though) neighbouring, and gardens of vines and fields sown with corn, and palm trees growing out of single roots or otherwise: watered with the same water, yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat.  Behold, verily in these things there are signs for those who understand!"

    Let us look at Noble Verse 15:19 "And the earth We have spread out; set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance."

    Let us look at Noble Verses 50:6-9 "Do they not look at the sky above them? How We have made it and adorned it, and there are no flaws in it?

    And the earth We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)

    To be observed and commemorated by every devotee turning (to Allah).

    And We send down from the sky rain charged with blessings, and We produce therewith gardens and grain for harvests;"

    Let us look at Noble Verses 78:4-8 "Verily, verily they shall soon (come to) know!

    Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse,

    And the mountains as pegs?

    And (have We not) created you in pairs,"

    Let us look at Noble Verse 27:61 "Or, Who has made the earth firm to live in; made rivers in its midst; set thereon mountains immovable; and made a separating bar between the two bodies of flowing water? (can there be another) god besides God? Nay, most of them know not."

    Let us look at Noble Verse 50:7 "And the earth- We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)-"


    We can clearly see from the above Noble Verses (13:1-4,15:19,16:15-16, 21:30-31, 31:10, 50:6-9, 78:4-8, 27:61 and 50:7) that Allah Almighty created the mountains to stand firmly on earth, and to stabilize the earth and not let it sway or get out of balance (15:19,16:15-16, 21:30-31 and 31:10).

    According to the scientific discovery that I saw on T.V., geologists discovered that for every curved object' height that is above the earth's surface (such as mountains and hills) it is expanded 10 to 15 times more inside earth.

    For for instance, if a mountain's height is 4,000 feet, then its expansion inside the earth is approximately 40,000 to 60,000 feet.

    This expansion inside the earth, according to what they (the geologists) claim, keeps the earth together while its revolving in a high speed around itself, and prevents it from getting out of balance and swaying while revolving.

    It is quite amazing that we find such valuable information revealed very accurately in the Noble Quran, a Holy Scripture that was revealed from GOD Almighty more than 1400 years ago.

     

     

    2-   Scientific facts and evidence with pictures about mountains preventing the earth from swaying, and they are like pegs:

    The following article was taken from http://www.islam-guide.com/frm-ch1-1-b.htm, and is also from "A Brief Illustration Guide To Understanding Islam" book that I recently bought, www.islam-brief-guide.org, library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 97-67654, ISBN: 9960-34-011-2.

     

    The Quran on Mountains:

    A book entitled Earth is a basic reference textbook in many universities around the world.  One of its two authors is Professor Emeritus Frank Press.  He was the Science Advisor to former US President Jimmy Carter, and for 12 years was the President of the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC. His book says that mountains have underlying roots. [1]  These roots are deeply embedded in the ground, thus, mountains have a shape like a peg (see figures 7, 8, and 9).
     

    Figure 7

    Figure 7: Mountains have deep roots under the surface of the ground. (Earth, Press and Siever, p. 413.)

     

    Figure 8 (Click here to enlarge)

    Figure 8: Schematic section.  The mountains, like pegs, have deep roots embedded in the ground. (Anatomy of the Earth, Cailleux, p. 220.) 

     

    Figure 9 (Click here to enlarge)

    Figure 9: Another illustration shows how the mountains are peg-like in shape, due to their deep roots. (Earth Science, Tarbuck and Lutgens, p. 158.) 

    This is how the Quran has described mountains.  God has said in the Quran:

     Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs?  (Quran, 78:6-7)

    Modern earth sciences have proven that mountains have deep roots under the surface of the ground (see figure 9) and that these roots can reach several times their elevations above the surface of the ground. [2]  So the most suitable word to describe mountains on the basis of this information is the word ‘peg,’ since most of a properly set peg is hidden under the surface of the ground.  The history of science tells us that the theory of mountains having deep roots was introduced only in the latter half of the nineteenth century. [3]

    Mountains also play an important role in stabilizing the crust of the earth. [4]  They hinder the shaking swaying of the earth.  God has said in the Quran:

     And He has set firm mountains in the earth so that it would not shake sway with you...  (Quran, 16:15)

    Likewise, the modern theory of plate tectonics holds that mountains work as stabilizers for the earth.  This knowledge about the role of mountains as stabilizers for the earth has just begun to be understood in the framework of plate tectonics since the late 1960’s. [5]

    Could anyone during the time of the Prophet Muhammad  have known of the true shape of mountains?  Could anyone imagine that the solid massive mountain which he sees before him actually extends deep into the earth and has a root, as scientists assert?  A large number of books of geology, when discussing mountains, only describe that part which is above the surface of the earth.   This is because these books were not written by specialists in geology.   However, modern geology has confirmed the truth of the Quranic verses.

     

     

     

     

    3-   More proofs on mountains are like pegs rooted inside the earth!

    From http://www.geocities.com/thetruebook/MountainsAreLikePegs.htm:

     

    Higher mountains are compensated by deeper roots. (6)

     

    The Quran says:

    “ Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse And the mountains As PEGS?”

    [Al-Quran 78:6-7]

     

    Pegs have deep roots under the surface of the ground like Mountains. Thus Quran gives the accurate example of Mountains.

    Now, in Noble Verses 79:30-32, Allah Almighty Says:

    And the earth after that He has spherically expanded
    Brought forth from it its water and pasture
    and the MOUNTAINS HE SET FIRMLY.

    Indeed, scientists have proven that:

    1-  The earth has spherically expanded.

    2-  The earth produced its water and pasture on a large scale as a result.  I have posted a Scientific Video from History Channel proving this:

      

    3-  The mountains due to this expansion were formed; due to the plate tectonics movements, which caused for land to be pushed on top of each other, which formed mountains and hills.  You can learn about this at:

    The Earth Spread out Spherically, and its Waters came out from it:

    Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 79:30-79:31
    Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

    79:30 والارض بعد ذلك دحاها

    79:31 اخرج منها ماءها ومرعاها

    Khalifa: (why is he here?)

    [079:030]  He made the earth egg-shaped.

    [079:031]  From it, He produced its own water and pasture.

      
    Below in this article, we'll see the ample proofs that the earth was indeed
    SPREAD OUT SPHERICALLY.  And Scientists have proven that water does indeed originate from its planets when they're hot enough and are located in the Goldilocks Zone when orbiting their sun.

    As thoroughly detailed in this detailed article, I thoroughly demonstrated using 7 encyclopedic dictionaries that DAHA دحاها  means:

    1-  To push.

    2-  To throw.

    دحا   (daha):  دفعه و رمى به (dafa'aahu wa ramaa bih) Caused it to move, pushed it, or threw it.

    دحا الصبي المِدحاةَ أي دفع الصبي المِدحاةَ   Daha the boy the rolling toy, means the boy pushed the rolling toy.


    3-  To make something roll, as in DAHA the barrel from the top of the hill, which means he rolled it down from the top of the hill.  Also, this is where the Arabic word DAHRAJA is derived from, which means to make something roll down.

    4-  To make something round.  I used several examples for ROUND AND BULGED TUMMY, and making round objects.  I even used a Hadith from Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, when he said:

    In Prophet Muhammad's Hadith: كان لأسامة بطننٌ مُندحٌ اي متسع   Osama had a round and big tummy.

    Also the dictionary says:
    الدحداح هو المستدير الململم    The dahdaah is the person who is ROUND and STOCKY.

    و بطنٌ مُنداحُ أي خارخٌ مُدوّر  His tummy is mun-daahun means it is OUT THERE AND ROUND مُدوّر.

      

    So when Allah Almighty DAHA THE EARTH, it means that Allah Almighty EXPANDED IT SPHERICALLY through rotating around itself and moving in its orbit in space.  And this is why Allah Almighty Said after that (after He DAHAHA), He brought forth from it its water and pasture.  Science has proven this to be 100% accurate and True:


    1-  Water was brought forth from the earth - Science confirmed it and the Holy Quran claimed it 1400 years ago:

    Note:  In Article #3'S video in the article, the collision of the iron-planet made
    our earth EGG-SHAPED, according to the Scientists and the video.

      
    2-  Our earth expanded and produced its own water:

    And

    A STUNNING Hadith [1] [2] [3] [4] from Prophet Muhammad regarding the rising and setting POINTS:

    Question:

    Did Prophet Muhammad know think that the earth was spherical or flat?

    Answer:

    In this Hadith, above, he certainly seems to have known this fact very well.  And this Hadith is even older than Sahih Bukhari.  It is important to know that Imam Bukhari and others have declared that they have discarded thousands of Hadiths:

    www.islamic-awareness.org/Hadith/bukhari.html

  • "The two sahih collections did not gather the totality of the authentic ahadith as proved by al-Bukhari's testimony: "I have not included in my book al-Jami` but what is authentic, and I left out among the authentic for fear of [excessive] length."
      

  • "... Bukhari, collected twenty thousand of them, of which he rejected ten thousand, accounting them untrue. Of the remaining ten thousand he accepted only 7,275, declaring the rest to be untrustworthy. Abu Da'ud accepted as authentic only 4,800 rules out 50,000."

  •   
    This is to keep their volumes as simple and manageable as possible.  So it is quite possible that the Prophet spoke about the earth being spherical, and the Glorious Quran certainly did, and
    people just dismissed them as nonsense.  I have covered your question in great details at:

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1390.msg5293.html#msg5293:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers Abdullah and Farhan,

    Please visit:

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/function_of_mountains.htm
    http://www.answering-christianity.com/mountains_stabilize_earth_while_rotating_around_its_axle.wmv
    http://www.answering-christianity.com/ac20.htm#links

    Noble Verse 16:15 is demonstrated there.  This topic is one of the Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran.
     

    Question:

    assalamualaykum can somebody explain his ayah surah 16:15 And He has thrown into the earth firmly set mountains, lest it shift with you, and [made] rivers and roads, that you may be guided,
    according to the word by word quran dictionary alqa means to throw in the ground but we know from modern geology that mountains where not thrown into the ground

    Answer:

    The Glorious Quran says Allah Almighty had SET (fastened is also correct as brother Farhan said) firm mountains IN THE EARTH to keep it stable:

    [016:015] And He has set up on IN the earth والقى في الارض  mountains standing firm رواسى , lest it should sway with you; and rivers and roads; that ye may guide yourselves;

    ‏16:15 والقى في الارض رواسى ان تميد بكم وانهارا وسبلا لعلكم تهتدون

    Geologists have proven that if earth was completely flat, then it would've been in a constant vibration.  Mountains do stabilize the earth during its rotation around its own axle.  Earth is rotating around itself at a speed of 1,000 miles per hour!  It is not a slow motion:

    "The circumference of the Earth at the equator is 25,000 miles. The Earth rotates in about 24 hours. Therefore, if you were to hang above the surface of the Earth at the equator without moving, you would see 25,000 miles pass by in 24 hours, at a speed of 25000/24 or just over 1000 miles per hour."
