Quran miracles :THE EARTH DOES ROTATE EVEN THOUGH WE ARE NOT CONSCIOUS OF IT
When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still.
But they are moving like clouds. Such is the artistry of God,
who disposes of all things in perfect order.
He is indeed fully aware of what you do.
(27- The Ant, 88)
The mountains’ features seem to make them the most stationary components of the earth’s surface. The idea of the unattainability of mountains led certain primitive mentalities to believe in polytheism and fancy that the mountains were the abode of divinities.
The idea of mountain peaks being beyond man’s reach was an illusion, as was also their stationary aspect. The verse refers to this illusion and speaks of the motion of mountains like clouds. If the mountains that had a stationary aspect did move, it would follow that the earth itself also moved. The verse thus dismisses the idea of a fixed world entertained as a consequence of false perception, and informed the public of the time of the movement of mountains, likening them to clouds.
