Mountains and Rains


The Qur'an linked between mountains and the water we drink; nowadays scientists discovered a link between both of them, let us read ….

Fourteen century ago human was looking for the clouds and rains as a strange phenomena which made by Gods, therefore they used to pray for those Gods asking for rains, in Europe people were looking to the rains as a  given livelihood by Gods!

But when the Islam came, it corrected many ideas and showed people the right way and guided them far from the wrong ideas, as the Islam talked about rains as a scientific phenomenon, as God who is the creator of the universe and everything and He is who put the rules of descending the rains. He confirmed in two holy verses on the existence of precise rules which control this phenomenon, He says :( And we sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure, and we gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, we are Able to take it away.)(Sûrat Al-Mu’minûn- verse 18) also God says: (And who sends down water (rain) from the sky in due measure, then we revives a dead land therewith, and even so you will be brought forth (from the graves).)(Sûrat AZ-Zukhruf- verse 11).

It means that the Qur'an is the first book to put a scientific base for the phenomenon of descending the rains, and to keep myths and superstitions away from minds of people. But there is an important thing that scientists had discovered the role of the mountains to forming clouds and rains.


Prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) wasn't living in such environment, but he lived in a desert environment where no human is able to predict with any kind of relationships between mountains and water of the rain, this is an evidence that the Qur'an is an inspiration from God to His prophet (peace be upon him).   

When the wind drives the ascending Molecules of water from the seas, the mountains contribute in the ascending operation to raise it up exactly like the ice skating race as the skater tries to reach the top of the mountain and when he reach it in a high speed he jumps in the air so that his speed increases to reach high distance, without the mountain he wouldn't be able to rise in the air.


There is a relationship between mountains and clouds, so we see the tops of mountains are covered with clouds all the year, because the design of these mountains which works as a bumper for the air to slide on its surface, that design helps in the acceleration of the loaded air by water vapor and helps in cooling it to form the clouds.

Here we can touch a scientific fact that the mountains have a vital role in the formation of clouds. Hence we can find that the sweetest kind of water is in the high mountains.

Therefore the taller the mountain the more amount of clouds are formed to produce rains or ice which dissolve and leak through the mountains to form fresh and sweet springs.


Scientists say that springs are formed in near of the mountains and its water is fresh and palatable, God says: (And have placed therein firm, and tall mountains, and have given you to drink sweet water?) (Sûrat Al-Mursalât – verse 27).


Water of springs which come from the high mountains passed through many filtration operations, so that the high mountain works as a filtration machines.


Without the mountains, even a one drop of water wouldn't be descended! That may seem so strange but this is the reality because of the vital role of the mountains in forming the clouds. Clouds are responsible for the descending of rains and also in forming ice which dissolves to make fresh and sweet water.


Scientists confirm that despite the advanced development in technology, human is unable to imitate such operations, therefore God says: (And have placed therein firm, and tall mountains, and have given you to drink sweet water?) (Sûrat Al-Mursalât – verse 27). In this verse God be He exalted and blessed made a link between the tall of mountains and the sweet water. Here we have to stop and ask a question: who knows at that time that the mountains have a vital role in the descending of rains and filtration of water?


Also, there is another relation between the tall of the mountain and the amount of the descended water ,the taller the mountain the more amount of water is descended and also purer and fresh .Therefore  the Qur'an linked between the high mountains as God said(tall mountains) and the sweet and fresh water as God says(sweet water).

As a result we can see that all verses of the Qur'an are compact with no contradiction and are compatible with the new science, isn’t it an evidence that the Qur'an is a book which was descended from God be He exalted and blessed?

(And say: "My Lord! Increase me in knowledge.") (Sûrat Tâ-Hâ- verse 114)
