“Earth speaks” I found this title in one of the international websites which is www.discovermagazine.com , in fact that title is an ordinary title in this era because scientists had discovered that every thing in the universe transmit sound frequencies.
But at the time of the descending of the Qur’an that matter wasn’t known at all as human at that time didn’t imagine that earth is transmitting vibrations, but the Qur’an told us about that issue in many verses which were explained by many explainers that Allah almighty gave earth the ability to speak so it became able to speak. God says: Then He rose over (Istawâ) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: “Come both of you willingly or unwillingly.” They both said: “We come willingly.”(Sûrat Fussilat- verse 11) also God says about the Pharaoh and his chiefs after He be blessed and exalted drown them: And the heavens and the earth wept not for them nor were they given a respite.)(Sûrat Ad-Dukhân- verse 29).
If we read saying of the explainers we can see that they believed in the ability of earth and heaven to speak in a real voice and also in their ability to cry.
One of the most important space websites which is www.space.com had published an article with a title “sky is speaking”. Mark Whittle, an astronomer at the University of Virginia found that universe in its early beginning was transmitting sound frequencies which were caused by the sudden expansion of the gases, the Qur’an told us about that in the holy verse: (Then He rose over (Istawâ) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: “Come both of you willingly or unwillingly.” They both said: “We come willingly.”)(Sûrat Fussilat- verse 11).
The scientists had discovered that these frequencies are in the Inaudible
Range and it has an important mission. As earth transmit frequencies in a range less than 20 hertz (less than 20 vibrations in second) before earthquakes, volcanoes and before the tsunami phenomenon.
In 2004when the tsunami hit beaches of Indonesia which caused hundreds of thousands of casualties, and before it occurs dogs run away and elephants in the zoo started to grumble and shout , scientists explained that as the animals hear these vibrations and felt with fear.
The scientists found that the elephants talk with each other in an inaudible voice also whales speak in these frequencies which spread through the water for thousands of kilometers! By the use of these frequencies, scientists are attempting to make an early detection for earthquakes and natural disasters.
Before the occurrence of volcanoes and earthquakes to be as a warning for animals to run away from the area of disaster, also God supported these animals with systems to hear these frequencies and to analyze it to take the necessary action , but the arrogant human till now didn’t invent such system to predict with earthquakes and volcanoes. Glory to Allah!
Look how God be He exalted had exploited every thing for us, He says: And has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth; it is all as a favor and kindness from Him. Verily, in it are signs for a people who think deeply.(Sûrat Al-Jâthiyah-verse13). Many thanks to Allah for all of these graces.
