1-  The Noble Quran's Divine Claims:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty Said: "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

With this said, let us now look at what Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 99:1-99:4
Yusuf Ali:

[099:001]  When the earth is shaken to her (utmost) convulsion,

[099:002]  And the earth throws up her burdens (from within),

[099:003]  And man cries (distressed): 'What is the matter with her?'-

[099:004]  On that Day will she declare her tidings:

Arabic (from right to left):

99:1 اذا زلزلت الارض زلزالها

99:2 واخرجت الارض اثقالها

99:3 وقال الانسان مالها

99:4 يومئذ تحدث اخبارها

There are several scientific claims that were made by Allah Almighty:

1-  Earthquakes do occur before volcanoes.  Notice how Allah Almighty in the Noble Verses said that the earth will quake first and then it will eject its heavy loads.

2-  After earthquakes, if volcanoes were to occur, they in turn cause for the earth to eject its heavy metals/rocks from its core.

3-  The earth's athqal (heavy weights) are not located on the earth's surface, but rather in the deep core of the earth, and they can only be *naturally* brought out through a violent eruption (volcano): "and the earth then disgorges its charges (athqalaha)" (99:2).

4-  When the entire earth quakes, all of its athqal (weights) will be brought out because 100s, if not even thousands, of volcanoes will simultaneously violently erupt. 

  

(a)-  No Volcanoes were witnessed in Arabia 1,500 years ago:

It is first of all important to know that Arabia has no volcanoes, and almost no earthquakes.  It is definitely confirmed that there are no earthquakes in the region where the Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina reside (the places where Prophet Muhammad lived most of his life in).  It is also confirmed that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, never saw a volcano in his entire life, and most likely he never felt an earthquake either.  Yet, we see in the Glorious Quran a Divine Statement from Allah Almighty that Says that earthquakes happen before volcanoes.

Is this Divine Statement Scientifically True?  Let's find out.

  

  

2-  The Scientific Proofs:

It is an established scientific fact that earthquakes happen before volcanoes.  This is a geological scientific fact that no one on earth would argue against.  It is indeed amazing to see such Scientific accuracy in the Glorious Quran about the earth shaking first before throwing out its heavy burdens (through volcanoes) in a Holy Book that was revealed to a person who lived in a time where his region never witnessed a single volcano, and hardly any earthquake, if any actually even happened.

Article #2:

From http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/scientific_24.html:

(Emphasis below are mine.  Also, see below for more Noble Verses and translations regarding athqalaha.)

THE EARTH DISGORGES ITS CHARGES

When the earth is convulsed with its quaking and the earth then disgorges its charges (athqalaha) and man asks, "What is wrong with it?", on that Day it will impart all its news. (Qur'an, 99:1-4)

The word "zilzal" in Arabic means earthquake, or tremors, and the word "athqalaha" means "charges, heavy burdens."  When one considers the above verses in the light of the first meaning, it can be seen that reference is being made to an important scientific fact about earthquakes.

Surat az-Zilzal 2 mentions the earth disgorging its charges. Indeed, as a result of research in recent years, it has been realised that there are heavy metals at the centre of the Earth, and that these appear as a result of movements on the Earth's surface. According to geologists' calculations, as the Earth cooled, heavy and dense substances sank to its centre, while lighter ones rose to the surface. For that reason, the Earth's crust consists of the least heaviest substances (basalt and granite rocks), while heavy metals (nickel and iron) are found in the core. As a result, the subsurface, which consists of molten metals, is made of a material that is much heavier and denser than the surface.

During earthquakes, the heavy substances below the surface have an opportunity to rise, and the Earth thus disgorges its charges, as revealed in the Qur'an. Moreover, those regions where metal reserves are most concentrated are also those with the greatest volcanic activity. These scientific findings, which emerged only recently, and as a result of wide-ranging research, are just some of the scientific facts indicated by Allah in the Qur'an.

  

Article #3:

Animals do detect earthquakes prior to their occurrences:

"Can Animals Sense Earthquakes?

The belief that animals can predict earthquakes has been around for centuries.

In 373 B.C., historians recorded that animals, including rats, snakes and weasels, deserted the Greek city of Helice in droves just days before a quake devastated the place.

Accounts of similar animal anticipation of earthquakes have surfaced across the centuries since. Catfish moving violently, chickens that stop laying eggs and bees leaving their hive in a panic have been reported. Countless pet owners claimed to have witnessed their cats and dogs acting strangely before the ground shook—barking or whining for no apparent reason, or showing signs of nervousness and restlessness." (Source)

 

Article #4:

Earthquakes do occur before volcanoes:

"Do volcano eruptions cause earthquakes?

Some, but not all, earthquakes are related to volcanoes. For example, most earthquakes are along the edges of tectonic plates. This is where most volcanoes are too. However, most earthquakes are caused by the interaction of the plates not the movement of magma.

Most earthquakes directly beneath a volcano are caused by the movement of magma. The magma exerts pressure on the rocks until it cracks the rock. Then the magma squirts into the crack and starts building pressure again. Every time the rock cracks it makes a small earthquake. These earthquakes are usually to weak to be felt but can be detected and recorded by sensitive instruments. Once the plumbing system of the volcano is open and magma is flowing through it, constant earthquake waves, called harmonic tremor, are recorded (but not felt)." (Source)

 

Article #5:

The earth's heaviest metals are in its core:

"Sometime after Earth formed, nearly 5 billion years ago, it must have been completely molten. During that time, heavy metals like iron sank toward the center." (Source)

 

Article #6:

"1. How was the planet Earth formed?

Chunks of rock and frozen liquids in orbit around the newly forming Sun converged and melted together to form the planets. Each time a planetisimal (see the Introduction) hit the rotating chunk of material that was to become Earth it melted in to the existing mass. The mass was hot and the metals were molten so the heavy metals like iron sank toward the center of the mass while lighter metals like silicon floated near the surface."
(Source)

 

Article #7:

"How do volcanoes affect climate?

Sulfur-rich volcanic eruptions that eject material into the stratosphere can have significant effects upon climate. These effects generally consist of tropospheric cooling and stratospheric warming. Aersols have a lifetime of 1-3 yrs, so tropospheric cooling will occur over this time frame. The eruption of Mt. Pinatubo volcano in the Philippines in 1991 caused a short-term global cooling of 0.5°C. Volcanic aerosols injected into the stratosphere can provide surfaces for ozone-destroying reactions. Therefore, large, sulfur-rich eruptions (e.g. Mount Pinatubo ) may result in decreased ozone concentration. Abundance of ozone may affect ultraviolet and longwave radiative fluxes, although no clear relationship between ozone abundance and global temperature has been established.

Over the course of millions of years, large volumes of volcanic ash deposited in oceans can provide iron to seawater. This iron can promote biotic activity to remove CO2 from the oceans, and hence from the atmosphere, resulting in global cooling. Over the course of weeks to years, ongoing production of ash from volcanoes may locally change climate by modifying the “dustiness” of the local atmosphere. Recent work suggests that large eruptions may trigger El Nino climate events.

However, Quaternary eruptions in New Mexico are unlikely to have had significant climatic affects because the eruptions either (1) may have emitted sulfur, but were of low volume and explosivity (mostly basaltic eruptions); or (2) were of high volume and explosivity, such as the Bandelier Tuff, but didn't contain sulfur in the magma and hence didn’t emit sulfur during the eruption."

Article #8:

"If we go out to any oceanic crust and pick up a rock, it will be made of basalt. This is a type of rock that is about 50% silica, with relatively enriched magnesium, iron and calcium compared to most continental rocks. Typically a fresh (unweathered) basalt is pretty dark or black, due to the presence of the heavy metals. Basalts are the typical rock type that will result when any chunk of the mantle is melted and the lighter material separated and then cooled. Since most of the Earth's surface is covered by basaltic ocean floor, it is the most common rock found on the surface of the Earth.

In contrast to andesitic rocks that are erupted in arc volcanoes, molten basalt is a low viscosity, runny magma type. This is because basalt is relatively low in silica (which makes andesite magmas sticky). As a result, basalt builds up very broad volcanoes called shield volcanoes, with layer upon layer of flows and underground injections. The viscosity is about the same as that of chunky soups, so steep-sided volcanic edifices cannot be built up by basaltic eruptions. This runny nature of basalt magmas is also a factor in preventing rift volcanoes from building up large pressures for explosive eruptions. The volcanoes tend not to plug themselves up with sticky rock nearly as effectively as in arc volcanoes. Combined with eruption under water, which causes the gasses and other volatiles to remain in solution in the rock, effusive eruptions result." (Source)

 

Article #9:

"We went looking for rocks that were thrown out of the volcano about 1,000 years ago. Work in past months had shown that a wide variety of material was exploded from Kilauea then, mostly cherry-sized scoria and other fine-grained material. However, several times explosions were apparently more violent or powerful. They ejected large, heavy rocks, much like those from the 1924 explosions that litter the surface around Halema`uma`u today. The question we asked was how far out were such rocks thrown?" (Source)

 

Article #10:

"April 15, 2003 - "Kilauea's Explosive Past .... and Future"

Kilauea is known as a drive-in volcano, but sometimes it can be a volcano to run away from as fast as possible! Energetic explosions of solid rock occur every few decades to centuries, about as often as Mount St. Helens erupts. The sizes of these explosive eruptions range from mere snorts (Pu‘u ‘O‘o in 1987, 1991, and 1996) to powerful steam explosions in the caldera (Halema’uma’u in 1924). Even more impressive is a series of explosions that significantly impacted areas beyond the caldera (Keanakako‘i explosions in 1500-1790) and truly mammoth explosions that shot heavy rocks more than 13 km (8 miles) into the air (the newly recognized Kulanaokuaiki tephra, ca. AD 800). Don Swanson, geologist at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, describes these events, speculates on what caused them, and lists some potential consequences to the community when they occur in the future."

And these "heavy rocks" are mostly made up of metals and heavy metals as clearly mentioned above.

[002:191]  And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[002:191]  Kill them wherever you find them. Expel them from where they drove you away. Persecution and oppression are worse than killing. Do not do battle with them near the sacred house of worship (Makkah), unless it is they who engage you in battle there. If they fight you there, then slay them (there). That is the due punishment for the disbelievers.

Arabic (from right to left):

2:191 واقتلوهم حيث ثقفتموهم واخرجوهم من حيث اخرجوكم والفتنة اشد من القتل ولاتقاتلوهم عند المسجد الحرام حتي يقاتلوكم فيه فان قاتلوكم فاقتلوهم كذلك جزاء الكافرين

Sher Ali:

[002:191]  And slay these transgressors wherever you meet them and drive them out from where they have driven you out; for persecution is worst than slaying. And fight them not in and near the Sacred Mosque until they fight you therein. But if they fight you, then fight them. Such is the requital for the disbelievers.

Shakir:

[002:191]  And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

Pickthall:

[002:191]  And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.

Sale:

[002:191]  And kill them wherever ye find them, and turn them out of that whereof they have dispossessed you, for temptation to idolatry is more grievous than slaughter: Yet fight not against them in the holy temple, until they attack you therein; but if they attack you, slay them there. This shall be the reward of the infidels.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[002:191]  And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.

Palmer:

[002:191]  Kill them wherever ye find them, and drive them out from whence they drive you out; for sedition is worse than slaughter; but fight them not by the Sacred Mosque until they fight you there; then kill them, for such is the recompense of those that misbelieve.

Arberry:

[002:191]  And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you; persecution is more grievous than slaying. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, slay them -- such is the recompense of unbelievers --

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[002:191]  You may kill those who wage war against you, and you may evict them whence they evicted you. Oppression is worse than murder. Do not fight them at the Sacred Masjid, unless they attack you therein. If they attack you, you may kill them. This is the just retribution for those disbelievers.

Rodwell:

[002:191]  And kill them wherever ye shall find them, and eject them from whatever place they have ejected you; for civil discord is worse than carnage: yet attack them not at the sacred Mosque, unless they attack you therein; but if they attack you, slay them. Such the reward of the infidels.

There is no question!

There is no question that "akhrajat" اخرجت in Noble Verses 99:1-4 means to expel or to bring out from within.  When Allah Almighty said that the earth will bring out or unload its athqal after the earthquake (zilzal) in Noble Verses , then He clearly and indisputably meant the weights that the earth is carrying inside itself.

  

(c)-  "athqal" اثقالها in other Noble Verses means weights and loads:

In Arabic, "weight lifting," as in working out and lifting weights, is called "rafe'a athqal." 

Let us look at Noble Verses 16:7 and 29:13 to see what "athqal" means in the Noble Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 16:7
Yusuf Ali:

[016:007]  And they carry your heavy loads to lands that ye could not (otherwise) reach except with souls distressed: for your Lord is indeed Most Kind, Most Merciful,

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[016:007]  They carry your burden from town to town, something you could not otherwise do except with the greatest of effort. Indeed, your Lord is the most Gracious and the most Merciful.

Transliteration:

[016:007]  Watahmilu athqalakum ila baladin lam takoonoo baligheehi illa bishiqqi al-anfusi inna rabbakum laraoofun raheemun

Arabic (from right to left):

16:7 وتحمل اثقالكم الى بلد لم تكونوا بالغيه الا بشق الانفس ان ربكم لرؤوف رحيم

Sher Ali:

[016:007]  And they carry your loads to a land which you could not reach except with great hardship to yourselves. Surely, your Lord is compassionate, Merciful.

Shakir:

[016:007]  And they carry your heavy loads to regions which you could not reach but with distress of the souls; most surely your Lord is Compassionate, Merciful.

Pickthall:

[016:007]  And they bear your loads for you unto a land ye could not reach save with great trouble to yourselves. Lo! your Lord is Full of Pity, Merciful.

Sale:

[016:007]  And they carry your burdens to a distant country, at which ye could not otherwise arrive, unless with great difficulty to yourselves; for your Lord is compassionate and merciful.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[016:007]  And they carry your loads to a land that you could not reach except with great trouble to yourselves. Truly, your Lord is full of Kindness, Most Merciful.

Palmer:

[016:007]  And they bear your heavy burdens to towns which ye could not otherwise reach, except with great wretchedness of soul;- verily, your Lord is kind and merciful.

Arberry:

[016:007]  and they bear your loads unto a land that you never would reach, excepting with great distress. Surely your Lord is All-clement, All-compassionate.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[016:007]  And they carry your loads to lands that you could not reach without a great hardship. Surely, your Lord is Compassionate, Most Merciful.

Rodwell:

[016:007]  And they carry your burdens to lands which ye could not else reach but with travail of soul: truly your Lord is full of goodness, and merciful:

  

Noble Verse(s) 29:13
Yusuf Ali:

[029:013]  They will bear their own burdens, and (other) burdens along with their own, and on the Day of Judgments they will be called to account for their falsehoods.

Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[029:013]  They surely carry the weight of their own sins, and also that of others whom they misled. Burdens to add to their own load! On the Day of Judgment, they will most certainly be asked about the lies they used to invent.

Transliteration:

[029:013]  Walayahmilunna athqalahum waathqalan maAAa athqalihim walayus-alunna yawma alqiyamati AAamma kanoo yaftaroona

Arabic (from right to left):

29:13 وليحملن اثقالهم واثقالا مع اثقالهم وليسألن يوم القيامة عما كانوا يفترون

Sher Ali:

[029:013]  But they shall, surely, bear their own burdens, and other burdens along with their own burdens. And they will, surely, be questioned on the Day of Resurrection concerning that which they fabricated.

Shakir:

[029:013]  And most certainly they shall carry their own burdens, and other burdens with their own burdens, and most certainly they shall be questioned on the resurrection day as to what they forged.

Pickthall:

[029:013]  But they verily will bear their own loads and other loads beside their own, and they verily will be questioned on the Day of Resurrection concerning that which they invented.

Sale:

[029:013]  But they shall surely bear their own burdens, and other burdens besides their own burdens; and they shall be examined, on the day of resurrection, concerning that which they have falsely devised.

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[029:013]  And verily, they shall bear their own loads, and other loads besides their own, and verily, they shall be questioned on the Day of Resurrection about that which they used to fabricate.

Palmer:

[029:013]  But they shall surely bear their own burdens, and burdens with their burdens; and they shall surely be asked upon the resurrection day concerning what they did devise.

Arberry:

[029:013]  They shall certainly carry their loads, and other loads along with their loads, and upon the Day of Resurrection they shall surely be questioned concerning that they were forging.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[029:013]  In fact, they will carry their own sins, in addition to loads of other people's sins for which they were responsible. Most certainly, they will be asked on the Day of Resurrection about their false claims.

Rodwell:

[029:013]  But their own burdens, and burdens beside their own burdens shall they surely bear: and inquisition shall be made of them on the day of Resurrection as to their false devices.

  

There is no question!

There is no question that athqal means loads and/or weights.  And again, when Allah Almighty said that the earth will bring out or unload its athqal after the earthquake (zilzal) in Noble Verses 99:1-4, then He clearly and indisputably referred to the weights that the earth is carrying inside itself.

  

  

4-  Conclusion:

Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Indeed, Allah Almighty did claim the following proven scientific statements:

1-  Earthquakes do occur before volcanoes.  Notice how Allah Almighty in Noble Verses 99:1-4 said that the earth will quake first and then it will eject its heavy loads.

2-  After earthquakes, volcanoes do occur, which in turn cause for the earth to eject its heavy metals/rocks from its core.  Animals by then would've all fled long before this happens as scientifically proven above.

3-  The earth's athqal (heavy weights) are not located on the earth's surface, but rather in the deep core of the earth, and they can only be *naturally* brought out through a violent eruption (volcano): "and the earth then disgorges its charges (athqalaha)" (99:2).

4-  When the entire earth quakes, all of its athqal (weights) will be brought out because 100s, if not even thousands, of volcanoes will simultaneously violently erupt.

Geologist have already proven that when earthquakes do occur in the areas where the earth's heaviest metals reside in its core, then the heaviest and most devastating volcanoes are likely to erupt in those areas.

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, lived in the middle of the desert where there were no earthquakes and no volcanoes.  He most definitely never witnessed a volcano in his entire life, and most probably never witnessed an earthquake either!  Most definitely, volcanoes never happened in Arabia during his days.  Again, in fact, according to Dr. Zaghlool Al-Naggar, one of the world's top seven geologists, the Holy city of Mecca is sitting on top of the most protected area on earth from any volcanic eruption.  The fact that earthquakes happen before volcanoes, and the fact that the earth's heaviest and most devastating volcanoes occur in the areas where the earth's heaviest metals (athqal) reside in its core clearly and indisputably shows that Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verses 99:1-4 was indeed scientifically accurate.

 

Other reasons why we have a scientific Miracle in Noble Verses 99:1-4:

The key thing here to notice and remember is Allah Almighty's mentioning of the earth's quake and violent eruption.  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, who might have witnessed an earthquake (very highly doubtful), but definitely never witnessed a volcano, could not have come up with this statement on his own about the earthquake happening first and then the volcano next.  Also, in light of the facts that Allah Almighty did mention that He sent down iron from space, made the earth egg-shaped [2] [3], made earth into seven layers, the earth's faults that cause earthquakes, Mountains prevent the earth from shaking, and talked about the earth's motion in space and around its own axle in numerous Noble Verses [1] [2] [3] [4] [5], which had all been scientifically proven to be true, makes it even more and more convincing that we indeed have a beautiful Divine Package of Scientific Noble Verses that talk about earth and many of the things that are tied to it.

Also, see the S-shaped moon orbit!

In another Noble Verse, Allah Almighty described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

Please visit: The moon's S-shaped orbit around earth is shaped like a branch of a date tree, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

Furthermore, Allah Almighty also Said:

"We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and INSIDE THEIR SELVES, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.
