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









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

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 of the earth. God has said in the Quran:




And He has set firm mountains in the earth so that it would not shake 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.
