asalaam aleykum;

وَالْأَرْضَ مَدَدْنَاهَا وَأَلْقَيْنَا فِيهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَأَنْبَتْنَا فِيهَا مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ مَوْزُونٍ ﴿15:19﴾ (15:19) We stretched forth the Earth, and set mountains firmly upon it, and caused to grow therein every kind of vegetable in balanced measure. *13


*13 The growth of every kind of plant in a limited extent is another Sign of the wisdom and power of Allah. For the generative power of every vegetable plant is so great that if free growth had been allowed to even one kind of plant, it would have covered the whole surface of the Earth. But it is by the design of the All-Wise and All-Powerful Creator that every kind of vegetable is produced in a balanced measure. There is another aspect of the vegetable life. Each and every kind of it is allowed to grow only to a fixed size, height, and thickness, which is a proof of the fact that the Creator himself prescribed the structure, the shape, the size, the height, the leaves and branches, and the number of each and every plant, and no plant is allowed to go beyond any of these fixed limits.


in arabic

وَالْأَرْضَ مَدَدْنَاهَا english=and set mountains firmly upon it, FIRMLY madadnaha......

as i brought up a question that KURAN traslations differs but none replied however i ope you should understand arabic also as english cant reach arabic in deep meaning.


Islam has no problem with science.\, clearly it is one of the SABAB for our achievement on Life on this earth; You can easily understand this by asking ones self FROM where do they get these exploration or experience OF COURSE WITHIN THE EARTH AND HEAVENS so after understanding that we can say is like something to be there and all at sudden you noticed it. (IBLISH=devil bragged himself and refused Allahs Command so a scientist should be Grateful for those Eyes, mind and distinction granted as HUMAN not animal)

Read this: B) The Quran on Mountains:

The mountains’ features seem to make them the most stationary components of the earth’s surface. The idea of the unattainability of mountains led certain primitive mentalities to believe in polytheism and fancy that the mountains were the abode of divinities. The idea of mountain peaks being beyond man’s reach was an illusion, as was also their stationary aspect. The verse refers to this illusion and speaks of the motion of mountains like clouds. If the mountains that had a stationary aspect did move, it would follow that the earth itself also moved. The verse thus dismisses the idea of a fixed world entertained as a consequence of false perception, and informed the public of the time of the movement of mountains, likening them to clouds.

When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving like clouds. Such is the artistry of God, who disposes of all things in perfect order. He is indeed fully aware of what you do. (27:88)

This sign, beyond the grasp of the public contemporary with the Prophet, led people to believe that it was a premonitory sign foretelling the end of the world.
