When I read Quran I frequently come across things which really amaze me and take me again to the point where I first accepted Islam and the religion of God Almighty. It is a monotheistic religion and the thrust of the Scripture is that God is only ONE, and has no son, daughter, wife, was not created but is the Creator. While reading the following section or chapter, I noticed again the statement that mountains have pegs. Please tell me, noting that this book has never changed in the past 1400 and some years ( I am specifically speaking of the Arabic version for this is the only one which is never changed, not one letter). Being that the case, how is it that Prophet Mohammed knew mountains have a peg or root under it back 1400 and some years ago? Do we not understand that when we are in a forest, we cannot see it for the trees? When we are surrounded by trees, that is all we can see. We cannot see the FOREST, nor its general shape, location, boundaries etc.
Therefore, even if by some miraculous strength Prophet Mohammed had been able to dig so deeply into the earth, what would or could he have seen? DIRT!!! ROCKS! Maybe layers of clay, different types of soil. But because he is “in” it, he could never have seen the shape of any root! Just like the forest.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Has there come to you the narration of the overwhelming (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)? (1) Some faces, that Day, will be humiliated (in the Hell-fire, i.e. the faces of all disbelievers). (2) Labouring (hard in the worldly life by worshipping others besides Allâh), weary (in the Hereafter with humility and disgrace). (3) They will enter in the hot blazing Fire, (4) They will be given to drink from a boiling spring, (5)No food will there be for them but a poisonous thorny plant, (6) Which will neither nourish nor avail against hunger (7) (Other) faces, that Day, will be joyful, (8) Glad with their endeavour (for their good deeds which they did in this world, along with the true Faith of Islâmic Monotheism). (9) In a lofty Paradise (10) Where they shall neither hear harmful speech nor falsehood, (11) Therein will be a running spring, (12) Therein will be thrones raised high, (13) And cups set at hand (14) And cushions set in rows, (15) And rich carpets (all) spread out (16) Do they not look at the camels, how they are created? (17) And at the heaven, how it is raised? (18) And at the mountains, how they are rooted (and fixed firm)? (19) And at the earth, how it is outspread? (20) So remind them (O Muhammad (SAW)) — you are only a one who reminds. (21) You are not a dictator over them — (22) Save the one who turns away and disbelieves. (23) Then Allâh will punish him with the greatest punishment. (24) Verily, to Us will be their return; (25) Then verily, for Us will be their reckoning. (26)
