WaTeR cYcLe

"WaTeR cYcLe iN QuRaN"
In 1580, Bernard Palissy was the first person to describe the present day concept of ?water cycle?. He described how water evaporates from the oceans and cools to form clouds. The clouds move inland where they rise, condense and fall as rain. This water gathers as lakes and streams and flows back to the ocean in a continuous cycle.
In the 7th century B.C., Thales of Miletus believed that surface spray of the oceans was picked up by the wind and carried inland to fall as rain. In earlier times people did not know the source of underground water. They thought the water of the oceans, under the effect of winds, was thrust towards the interior of the continents.
They also believed that the water returned by a secret passage or the Great Abyss. This passage is connected to the oceans and has been called the ?Tartarus?, since Plato?s time. Even Descartes, a great thinker of the eighteenth century, subscribed to this view. Till the nineteenth century, Aristotle?s theory was still prevalent. According to this theory, water was condensed in cool mountain caverns and formed underground lakes that fed springs. Today, we have come to know that the rainwater that seeps into the cracks of the ground is responsible for this.
This is described by the Quran in the following verses:

?Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky, and leads it through springs in the earth? then He causes to grow, therewith, produce of various colours.?
[Al-Quran 39:21]

?He sends down rain from the sky and with it gives life to the earth after it is dead: Verily in that are Signs for those who are wise.?
[Al-Quran 30:24]

?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).?
[Al-Quran 23:18]

No other text dating back 1400 years ago gives such an accurate description of the water cycle.
