he radius of the earth is Talmost 6,400 km and its medial crustal thickening is 30 km below the continents and mountains, but it becomes around 5 km below sea beds and oceans. Such layer is thin and breakable and that’s why the earth’s crust is divided into 12 plates or more. Enormous masses of seas, therefore, slip from the bottom of oceans and dive under the ground. Scientists are concerned about the loss of quantities of fresh water deep under the ground and the inability of people to make use of it. All glory to Allah, the almighty for the holy Qur’an warns against such a phenomenon and talks about the possibility of disappearance of water under the layers of the earth. Allah, the exalted says in the holy Qur’an:
“And We send down water from the sky according to (due) measure, and We cause it to soak in the soil; and We certainly are able to drain it off (with ease).” Mu’minun or the Believers: 23: 18
Allah also says in the holy Qur’an:
“Say: "See ye?- If your stream be some morning lost (in the underground earth), who then can supply you with clear-flowing water?"” Mulk: 67: 30
Shall we then return to the path of Allah, the exalted!
