The Earth Which Cracks Open
Allah, the Almighty, said, "And (by) the Earth which cracks open." (86: 12)
After World War II, marine biologists discovered that most of the ocean bedas are disrupted by a large net of cracks extending to hundreds of thousands of kilometers in length and width and by a mean of 100 kilometers in depth. These cracks are connected to each other as if they were one large crack.
If it had not been for these cracks, the Earth would have exploded as a massive nuclear bomb from the moment it was formed because of the enormous nuclear and chemical reactions which occur inside the earth.
Allah سبحانہ وتعالیٰ swore by this astonishing fact of the Earth 14 centuries ago while the scientific discoveries of these facts occurred only in the middle of the 20th century after the exploration of the ocean beds was done and snaps of all these cracks were taken in 1965.
