Shape of Earth

Earth is Spherical

In 1577 Sir Francis Drake Prove that the earth is Spherical.

The same thing was mentioned in Quran 1400 years ago. The earth is actually not completely spherical but is slightly bulging at the center and slight flat at the poles. It is like an Egg of Ostrich. And Quran mentioned it through below verse:

“And then we made the earth Egg Shaped” ( Quran chapter 79, Verse 30)

Big Bang Theory

In the field of Astronomy in 1973, some of the Scietist had described the creation of Universe And called it as a big bang Theory. They said that our universe was primarily a nebula, then there was a secondary separation which gave rise to galaxies and stars, plants, sun, moon and earth on which we live.

The same theory was mentioned in Glorious Quran 1400 years ago through the following verse:

“ Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together, before we clove them asunder?" (Quran chapter 21, Verse 30)

Water cycle

In 1580, Bernard Palissy was the first to describe Water Cycle. And Quran has mentioned the water cycle 1400 years ago through below verses.


thou not that Allah Sends down rain from The sky, and leads it Through

springs in the earth? Then He causes to grow, Therewith, produce of

various Colours.” [Al-Qur’aan 39:21]

“He sends down rain From the sky And with it gives life to The earth

after it is dead: Verily in that are Signs For those who are wise.” [Al Qur’aan 30:24]

“And We send down water From the sky according to (Due) measure,

and We cause it To soak in the soil; And We certainly are able To drain

it off (with ease).” [Al-Qur’aan 23:18]

“And We send the fecundating winds, Then cause the rain to descend

From the sky, therewith providing You with water (in abundance).” [AlQur’aan 15:22]

“It is Allah 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 Raindrops issue from the midst Thereof: then

when He has Made them reach such Of His servants as He wills, Behold,

they do rejoice!” [Al-Qur’aan 30:48]
