1-  The Noble Quran's claim:

In this section, we will first look at Allah Almighty's Miraculous Claim in Noble Verse 15:22, and then further prove it using Noble Verses 30:48, 35:9 and 2:71.

As we clearly see below in Noble Verse 15:22, virtually almost all of the English translations accurately translated the Noble Word LAWAQIH in a sexual context because the word is always used in the context of bringing the male and female seeds together to fertilize.  This is indeed a Miraculous Notion and Statement by Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran because winds do indeed cause the sky to electrically fertilize positive and negative electric charges by joining them together, which is why we hear thunder blasts before the rain actually comes down.  More details and proofs are provided in the conclusion section below.

Also, Allah Almighty in Noble Verses 30:48 and 35:9 Said that the wind EXCITES the clouds!  When reading the two Noble Verses in the context of Noble Verse 15:22, we clearly see that indeed Allah Almighty Miraculously stated very clearly that, again, winds do cause the sky to electrically fertilize positive and negative electric charges by joining them together, which is, again, why we hear thunder blasts before the rain actually comes down.

Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said regarding the Miracle of Rain in the Noble Quran.

 

(a)-  The fertilizing winds:

Noble Verse(s) 15:22
Arabic (from right to left):

15:22 وارسلنا الرياح لواقح فانزلنا من السماء ماء فاسقيناكموه وماانتم له بخازنين

Yusuf Ali:

[015:022]  And We send the fecundating (to impregnate or fertilize) winds, then cause the rain to descend from the sky, therewith providing you with water (in abundance), though ye are not the guardians of its stores.

Sher Ali:

[015:022]  And WE send fecundating (to impregnate or fertilize) winds, then WE send down water from the clouds, then WE give it to you to drink, and you could not yourselves store it.

Shakir:

[015:022]  And We send the winds fertilizing, then send down water from the cloud so We give it to you to drink of, nor is it you who store it up.

Pickthall:

[015:022]  And We send the winds fertilising, and cause water to descend from the sky, and give it you to drink. It is not ye who are the holders of the store thereof.

Sale:

[015:022]  We also send the winds driving the pregnant clouds, and We send down from heaven water, whereof We give you to drink, and which ye keep not in store.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[015:022]  And We send the winds fertilizing, then caused the water (rain) to descend from the sky, and We gave it to you to drink, and it is not you who are the owners of its stores (i.e. to give water to whom you like or to withhold it from whom you like).

Palmer:

[015:022]  And we send forth the impregnating winds, and we send down water from the sky, and we give it to you to drink, nor is it ye who store it up.

Arberry:

[015:022]  And We loose the winds fertilising, and We send down out of heaven water, then We give it to you to drink, and you are not its treasurers.

Rodwell:

[015:022]  And We send forth the fertilising winds, and cause the rain to come down from the heaven, and give you to drink of it; and it is not ye who are its storers:

 

 

(b)-  The exciting winds to the clouds:

Allah Almighty also said in other Noble Verses that He sends the winds to excite the clouds.

In Arabic, tutheer means to excite.  Mutheer means exciting and Itharaa means excitement.  Allah Almighty Said that He sends the winds to tutheer the clouds in the following Noble Verses.

Noble Verse(s) 30:48
Yusuf Ali:

[030:048]  It is God Who sends the Winds, and they raise the Clouds: then does He spread them in the sky as He wills, and break them into fragments, until thou seest rain-drops issue from the midst thereof: then when He has made them reach such of his servants as He wills behold, they do rejoice!-

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[030:048]  It is Allah Who sends the winds, which raise the clouds. He then spreads them in the sky, as He wants. He makes (the weather) dark and downcast, and eventually you see the raindrops trickling down from the clouds. He causes rain to pour down upon such of His servants, as He wants. They feel happy!

Sher Ali:

[030:048]  It is ALLAH Who sends the winds so that they raise the vapours in the form of a cloud. Then HE spreads it in the sky as HE pleases, and then HE spreads it into fragments, and thou seest the rain issuing forth from its midst. And when HE causes it to fall on whom HE pleases of HIS servants, behold ! they rejoice;

Shakir:

[030:048]  Allah is he Who sends forth the winds so they raise a cloud, then He spreads it forth in the sky as He pleases, and He breaks it up so that you see the rain coming forth from inside it; then when He causes it to fall upon whom He pleases of His servants, lo! they are joyful

Pickthall:

[030:048]  Allah is He Who sendeth the winds so that they raise clouds, and spreadeth them along the sky as pleaseth Him, and causeth them to break and thou seest the rain downpouring from within them. And when He maketh it to fall on whom He will of His bondmen, lo! they rejoice;

Sale:

[030:048]  It is God who sendeth the winds, and raiseth the clouds, and spreadeth the same in the heaven, as He pleaseth; and afterwards disperseth the same: And thou mayest see the rain issuing from the midst thereof; and when He poureth the same down on such of his servants as He pleaseth, behold, they are filled with joy;

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[030:048]  Allah is He Who sends the winds, so they raise clouds, and spread them along the sky as He wills, and then break them into fragments, until you see rain drops come forth from their midst! Then when He has made them fall on whom of His slaves as He will, lo! they rejoice!

Palmer:

[030:048]  God it is who sends forth the winds to stir up clouds; then He spreads them forth over the sky as he pleases; and He breaks them up and ye see the rain come forth from amongst them; and when He causes it to fall upon whom He pleases of His servants, behold they hail it with joy,

Arberry:

[030:048]  God is He that looses the winds, that stir up clouds; and He spreads them in heaven how He will, and shatters them; then thou seest the rain issuing out of the midst of them, and when He smites with it whomsoever of His servants He will, lo, they rejoice,

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[030:048]  GOD is the One who sends the winds, to stir up clouds, to be spread throughout the sky in accordance with His will. He then piles the clouds up, then you see the rain coming down therefrom. When it falls on whomever He chooses from among His servants, they rejoice.

Rodwell:

[030:048]  It is God who sendeth the winds and uplifteth the clouds, and, as He pleaseth, spreadeth them on high, and breaketh them up; and thou mayest see the rain issuing from their midst; and when He poureth it down on such of his servants as He pleaseth, lo! they are filled with joy,

 

Noble Verse(s) 35:9
Yusuf Ali:

[035:009]  It is God Who sends forth the Winds, so that they raise up the Clouds, and We drive them to a land that is dead, and revive the earth therewith after its death: even so (will be) the Resurrection!

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[035:009]  It is Allah Who sends the winds, then stirs the clouds into action (here Dr. Munir translated it differently from above) and drives them towards the dead and barren land. Thus, after its death, We bring the land back to life! Your return to life (after your death) shall also happen in the same manner.

(c)-  An example of the word tutheer in Noble Verse 2:71:

Here is further proof that the word tutheer means to excite or stir up:

Noble Verse(s) 2:71
Yusuf Ali:

[002:071]  He said: "He says: A heifer not trained to till the soil or water the fields; sound and without blemish." They said: "Now hast thou brought the truth." Then they offered her in sacrifice, but not with good-will.

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[002:071]  (Musa)) said, “As a matter of fact, He says that this cow is not yoked or burdened. It does not plough the land, nor does it irrigate the field. It is unscathed, and without a blemish; it is free of faults.” They said, “Now you have brought the truth.” Then they slaughtered it, but they almost didn’t do it.

Transliteration:

[002:071]  Qala innahu yaqoolu innaha baqaratun la thaloolun tutheeru al-arda wala tasqee alhartha musallamatun la shiyata feeha qaloo al-ana ji/ta bialhaqqi fathabahooha wama kadoo yafAAaloona

Arabic (from right to left):

2:71 قال انه يقول انها بقرةلاذلول تثير الارض ولاتسقي الحرث مسلمة لاشية فيها قالوا الان جئت بالحق فذبحوها وماكادوا يفعلون

Sher Ali:

[002:071]  He answered, `God says it is a cow not broken to plough the earth or water the tilth; one without blemish; of one colour.' They said, `Now thou have brought the truth.' Then they slaughtered her, though they would rather not do it.

Shakir:

[002:071]  Musa said: He says, Surely she is a cow not made submissive that she should plough the land, nor does she irrigate the tilth; sound, without a blemish in her. They said: Now you have brought the truth; so they sacrificed her, though they had not the mind to do (it).

Pickthall:

[002:071]  (Moses) answered: Lo! He saith: Verily she is a cow unyoked; she plougheth not the soil nor watereth the tilth; whole and without mark. They said: Now thou bringest the truth. So they sacrificed her, though almost they did not.

Sale:

[002:071]  Moses answered, he saith, she is a cow not broken to plough the earth, or water the field, a found one, there is no blemish in her. They said, now hast thou brought the truth. Then they sacrificed her; yet they wanted but little of leaving it undone.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[002:071]  He (Moosa (Moses)) said, "He says, It is a cow neither trained to till the soil nor water the fields, sound, having no other colour except bright yellow. " They said, "Now you have brought the truth." So they slaughtered it though they were near to not doing it.

Palmer:

[002:071]  He answered, 'He saith, it is a cow, not broken in to plough the earth or irrigate the tilth, a sound one with no blemish on her.' They said, 'Now hast thou brought the truth.' And they slaughtered her, though they came near leaving it undone.

Arberry:

[002:071]  He said, 'He says she shall be a cow not broken to plough the earth or to water the tillage, one kept secure, with no blemish on her.' They said, 'Now thou hast brought the truth'; and therefore they sacrificed her, a thing they had scarcely done.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[002:071]  He said, "He says that she is a heifer that was never humiliated in plowing the land or watering the crops; free from any blemish." They said, "Now you have brought the truth." They finally sacrificed her, after this lengthy reluctance.

Rodwell:

[002:071]  He said, "God saith, 'She is a cow not worn by ploughing the earth or watering the field, sound, no blemish in her.' " They said, "Now hast thou brought the truth:" Then they sacrificed her; Yet nearly had they done it not:

1-  From Wikipedia:

"Theories of the cause of thunder

The cause of thunder has been the subject of centuries of speculation and scientific inquiry. The first recorded theory is attributed to Aristotle in the third century BC, and an early speculation was that it was caused by the collision of clouds. Subsequently, numerous other theories have been proposed. By the mid-19th century, the accepted theory was that lightning produced a vacuum along its path, and that thunder was caused by the subsequent motion of air rushing to fill the vacuum. Later in the 19th century it was believed that thunder was caused by an explosion of steam when water along the lightning channel was heated. Another theory was that gaseous materials were created by lightning and then exploded. In the 20th century a consensus evolved that thunder must begin with a shock wave in the air due to the sudden thermal expansion of the plasma in the lightning channel." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunder)


2-  "In a cloud, swift air separates water droplets, causing electrical charges.
The electrical charges build up and causes huge electric shocks. It generates about 100 million volts of electricity."
(http://library.thinkquest.org/5818/thunder3.html)


3-  "what Causes Rain?

Until recently meteorologists were unable to explain why clouds contain disproportionately large quantities of large and small water droplets. Now Dutch researchers claim that areas of air turbulence that forms very small spiral patterns and that this then causes clouds to produce rain.
...........
What has also been shown is that there are very few droplets in the center of each area of turbulence and that as a consequence the air there remains supersaturated. Until recently meteorologists had considered this to be impossible, but the results also indicated
that air more than one hundred meters above the base of a cloud becomes so supersaturated with water vapour that droplets are created. Water vapour then condenses on particles (like dust), with a radius of less than a micrometer. Just how many small droplets develop depends on the level of supersaturation of the air."
(http://www.scienceagogo.com/news/19991015072451data_trunc_sys.shtml)


4-  From a Muslim web site:

"Modern science tells us that the growth of clouds and precipitation require that the winds fertilize the clouds with a quantity of microscopic particles called condensation nuclei. The most important qualities of these seeds are that they draw water or dissolve into it. The winds also carry water vapor to the clouds so they will produce rain. The process goes on with the coming together of numerous particles of water in the atmosphere around these condensation nuclei.

The smallest droplet of water is made up of at least 100 molecules. It is not easy for such a number to come together by mere coincidence without there being nuclei to precipitate upon.

These particles are preserved. In this way, people have come to know that the Qur’anic verse points to how the winds fertilize the clouds with water vapor then with condensation nuclei as a precursor to the existence of rain. Allah says:

See you not that Allah drives the clouds gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap of layers and you see the rain comes forth from between them; and they are like mountains in the sky from which He sends down hail, and strikes therewith whom He wills and averts it from whom He wills. The vivid flash of the clouds’ lightning nearly blinds the sight.
Meteorologists say that rain requires the development of precipitating clouds. Among these rain clouds are cumulonimbus clouds that form in a vertical direction. They can extend upwards of twenty kilometers. These cumulonimbus clouds have three layers. The lowest level consists of growing drops of water. The middle layer contains water droplets having temperatures below freezing that are still in a liquid form. As for the highest layer, it is comprised of pure white ice crystals. Allah has made the water droplets that are above freezing unstable, capable of freezing by merely plunging into a solid body. This is why when ice crystals fall from the highest layer to the middle layer and meet with water that is above freezing, the crystals adhere to these droplets and freeze with them, swiftly increasing their size." (http://www.islamtoday.com/discover_islam.cfm?cat_id=6&sub_cat_id=42)
 
  
5-  From Wikipedia:
 
"Cloud condensation nuclei or CCNs (also known as cloud seeds) are small particles (typically 0.0002 mm, or 1/100 th the size of a cloud droplet [1]) about which cloud droplets coalesce. Water requires a non-gaseous surface to make the transition from a vapour to a liquid. In the atmosphere, this surface presents itself as tiny solid or liquid particles called CCNs. When no CCNs are present, water vapour can be supercooled below 0 °C (32 °F) before droplets spontaneously form (this is the basis of the cloud chamber for detecting subatomic particles)."  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_condensation_nuclei)
 
 
6-  From Wikipedia:
 
"Coalescence is the process by which two or more droplets or particles merge during contact to form a single daughter droplet (or bubble). It can take place in many processes, ranging from meteorology to astrophysics. For example, it is both involved in the formation of raindrops as well as planetary and star formation."  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coalescence_%28meteorology%29)

  

7-  Scientific Proofs from Dr. Harun Yahya:

From http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/scientific_47.html:

THE FECUNDATING WINDS

In one verse of the Qur'an, the "fecundating" characteristic of the winds, and the resulting formation of rain are mentioned.

And We send the fecundating winds, then cause water to descend from the sky, therewith providing you with water in abundance. (Qur'an, 15:22)

This verse points out that the first stage in the formation of rain is wind. Until the beginning of the 20th century, the only relationship known between the wind and the rain was that it was the wind that drove the clouds. However, modern meteorological findings have demonstrated the "fecundating" role of the wind in the formation of rain.

As explained earlier, this fecundating function of the wind works in the following way:

On the surface of oceans and seas, a large number of air bubbles form because of the water's foaming action. The moment these bubbles burst, thousands of tiny particles, with a diameter of just one hundredth of a millimetre, are thrown up into the air. These particles, known as "aerosols," mix with dust carried from the land by the wind, and are carried to the upper layers of the atmosphere. These particles carried to higher altitudes by winds come into contact with water vapour up there. Water vapour condenses around these particles and turns into water droplets. These water droplets first come together and form clouds, and then fall to the Earth in the form of rain. As mentioned, winds "fecundate" the water vapour floating in the air with the particles they carry from the sea, and eventually help the formation of rain clouds.

If winds did not possess this property, water droplets in the upper atmosphere would never form, and there would be no rain.

The most important point to be recognized here is that this critical role of the wind in the formation of rain was stated centuries ago in the Qur'an, at a time when very little was known about natural phenomena…

The picture above shows the stages in the formation of a wave. Waves are formed by the wind blowing above the surface of the water. With the wind, water particles start to move in a circular motion. This movement soon forms waves, one after the other, and bubbles formed by the waves spread in the air. This is the first stage in the formation of rain. This process is declared in the verse as "We send the fecundating winds and then cause water to descend from the sky."

Further information provided in the verse about the fertilising quality of the wind is its role in the pollination of flowers. Many plants on Earth disperse their pollen by means of the wind in order to ensure the survival of their species. Several open-seeded plants, pine trees, palm and similar trees, seeded plants that produce flowers, and grass-like plants are entirely pollinated by the wind. The wind carries the pollen from the plants to others of the species, thus fertilising them.

Until recently, the way that the wind was able to fertilise plants was unknown. When it was realised, however, that plants are divided into males and females, the fertilising role of the wind was also discovered. This truth was already indicated in the Qur'an: "… [He] sent down water from the sky by which We have brought forth various different types of plants in pairs." (Qur'an, 20:53)

 

All Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone!  Nothing in His Holy Book is wrong.  On the contrary, the Noble Quran is indeed a Divine Noble Book that contains ample scientific statements and notions.  Allah Almighty Said:

 
"We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and INSIDE THEIR SELVES, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"
 

 

 

 

3-  The stages of clouds in the Noble Quran and Science:

The sections of this sub-section are:

(a)-  Clouds made into stacks.
(b)-  Rain sent in well-balanced and well-calculated
"due measure".

 

 

(a)-  Clouds made into stacks:

From http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/scientific_44.html:

In another verse, the following information is given about the formation of rain:

Have you not seen how Allah drives along the clouds, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it? And He sends down from the sky mountain masses [of clouds] with cold hail in them, striking with it anyone He wills and averting it from anyone He wills. The brightness of His lightning almost blinds the sight. (Qur'an, 24:43)

Scientists studying cloud types came across surprising results with regards to the formation of rain clouds. Rain clouds are formed and shaped according to definite systems and stages. The stages of formation of one kind of rain cloud, cumulonimbus, are these:

1. STAGE, Being driven along: Clouds are carried along, that is, they are driven along, by the wind.


(A) Isolated small pieces of clouds (cumulonimbus clouds)

(B) When the small clouds join together, updrafts within the larger cloud increase. As a result, the cloud is stacked up.
 

2. STAGE, Joining: Then, small clouds (cumulonimbus clouds) driven along by the wind join together, forming a larger cloud.55

3. STAGE, Stacking: When the small clouds join together, updrafts within the larger cloud increase. The updrafts near the centre of the cloud are stronger than those near the edges. These updrafts cause the cloud body to grow vertically, so the cloud is stacked up. This vertical growth causes the cloud body to stretch into cooler regions of the atmosphere, where drops of water and hail formulate and begin to grow larger and larger. When these drops of water and hail become too heavy for the updrafts to support them, they begin to fall from the cloud as rain, hail, etc.56

We must remember that meteorologists have only recently come to know these details about cloud formation, structure and function, by using advanced equipment like planes, satellites, computers etc. It is evident that Allah has provided us information that could not have been known 1,400 years ago.

These updrafts cause the cloud body to grow vertically and the cloud is stacked up. This vertical growth causes the cloud body to stretch into cooler regions of the atmosphere, where drops of water and hail formulate and begin to grow larger and larger. When these drops of water and hail become too heavy for the updrafts to support them, they begin to fall from the cloud as rain, hail, etc. This scientific fact was announced in Sura Nur 43 fourteen centuries ago by Allah in this way: "... then [He] makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it…"

(b)-  Rain sent in well-balanced and well-calculated "due measure":

Let us look at what Allah Almighty Said in Noble Verse 43:11.  As we clearly see below, virtually all of the English translations of Noble Verse 43:11 agree that Allah Almighty spoke about well-calculated and measured amount of rain that is sent from the sky.  In other words, the waters in the sky are not random.  They are rather:

1-  Proportionate with the winds that are lifting them (not too heavy nor too light).  Please visit: Clouds are kept in the air by the winds, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science! for more details.

2-  Proportionate with the stacks and layers of clouds that are carrying them.

Noble Verse(s) 43:11

[043:011]  And who sendeth down out of Heaven the rain in due degree, by which we quicken a dead land; thus shall ye be brought forth from the grave:

 

 

4-  Conclusion:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries. 

Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Truly Allah Almighty's Notion about the fertilizing winds causing rain to fall did indeed accurately address the Wondrous formulation of clouds and all of the chemical and electrical reactions that take place before the rain actually falls - all in few Words!  To the ordinary man 1,500 years ago, no one knew that winds actually carry causes for chemical reactions!  No one even knew how the rain actually formulates and falls down from the sky.  Yet, Allah Almighty in one known biological word that deals with joining semen and egg (electrical positive and negative in this case), pregnancy, and human and animal reproduction (production of rain) summed it all up perfectly - that winds are indeed the key to the formulation (fertilization) of the rain, and the key to the formulation (fertilization) of the electrical charges and thunder (which is part of the rain process), and that without the wind, none of this would happen.

Also, it is important to know that the "+" and "-" or "positive" and "negative" modern-day terms are only man-made.  The reality is that different materials that are attracted to each others (let us call them males and females instead of + and -) exist so that when they are brought together through a chemical reaction they produce a new result; new product; new creation.  In our case, the new results are the thunder blast and the formation of the rain - that without the wind they would never come to existence by Allah Almighty's Divine Will and Design.

Also, Allah Almighty talked about the stacks and layers of the clouds, and the well-balanced and well-calculated rain that is contained in them that is:

1-  Proportionate with the winds that are lifting them (not too heavy nor too light).  Please visit: Clouds are kept in the air by the winds, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science! for more details.

2-  Proportionate with the stacks and layers of clouds that are carrying them.

Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

 

 

 

 

The Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran.

Islamic Prophecy:  The dajjal (anti-Christ) will command the sky to rain, and it will rain.  And he will command the sky to cause drought, and it will cause drought.

The Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

Allah, Islam, Quran, Muhammad questions and answers.

What is the place of Jews, Christians and non-Muslims in Islam.

Ask me any question section.

The S-shaped moon orbit!

In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

Please visit: The moon's S-shaped orbit around earth is shaped like a branch of a date tree, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

 

The egg-shaped earth's orbit!

In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the earth's orbit around the sun as egg-shaped which had also been confirmed by science.

Please visit: If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic? with detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha".
