Today, scientists describe the formation of hail as follows: winds drive water vapor upward and then water drops pile up forming cumulus clouds and then they move upward for several kilometers and take the shape of mountains in the sky. In such environment, hailstones are formed and it rains through the clouds and the hailstones also fall of different sizes. Amazingly, the holy Qur’an precisely describes this great image and in the same scientific order of the stages of hail formation; Allah, the exalted says:
“Seest thou not that Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap? - then wilt thou see rain issue forth from their midst. And He sends down from the sky mountain masses (of clouds) wherein is hail: He strikes therewith whom He pleases and He turns it away from whom He pleases, the vivid flash of His lightning well-nigh blinds the sight.” Nur or Light: 24: 43
Scientists say that the formation of hail is accompanied by flashes of lightning and miraculously the above verse combines between the formation of hail and lightning! The question is who told Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, about this? It’s definitely Allah, the omniscient.
