mountains thrown into ground
« on: December 17, 2013, 12:27:31 AM »
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

Assalamualykum.


 Brother the word ''ألقى'' also means ''fasten'' according to Google Translator. So if we translate it as ''fasten'' then it's absolutely okay. Well if I get to know anything  more about this, I'll let you know. Besides lets just wait, I'm sure other brothers are going to help you soon. Just don't worry. ;D ;D ;D

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

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 shake 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."
