Cloud Formation and Rainfall

Qur’aanic Verse 30:48:



48. Allahu allathee yursilu alrriyaha fatutheeru sahaban fayabsutuhu fee alssama-i kayfa yashao wayajAAaluhu kisafan fatara alwadqa yakhruju min khilalihi fa-itha asaba bihi man yashao min AAibadihi itha hum yastabshiroona


48. Allah is the One Who sends the winds. Then the interaction of the winds raises a cloud. Then He spreads the cloud across the sky as He pleases, and breaks it into fragments. Then you see the rain pouring down from within them.8 And when He makes the rain fall on whomsoever of His creatures He pleases, those creatures do then rejoice.

Study Note:

8. Go to the Geography Site to learn what modern science tells us about cloud formation and rainfall. Compare this knowledge that man has now gained to what the Qur’aan told us about it over 1400 years back. The Qur’aan had informed us that long ago how winds play a vital role in the whole process. The hot rising wind gets cooled as it rises and the water vapour therein gets condensed to form tiny water droplets, thus forming a cloud. It also gives us a hint on how the tiny droplets in the cloud tend to join one another within it so that the larger cloud gets fragmented into smaller ones. The heavier droplets in the clouds then drop down as rain due to the gravitational pull of the earth.

 The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil V, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II,  Manzil III and Manzil IV of the series are already published.
