Rain in Measure PDF Print E-mail

Another item of information provided in the Quran about rain is that it is sent down to Earth in ‘measured amounts.’


It is He Who sends down water in due measure from the sky by which We bring a dead land back to life. That is how you too will be raised (from the dead). (Qur'an, 43:11)
This measured quantity in rain has again been discovered by modern research. It is estimated that in one second, approximately 16 million tons of water evaporates from the Earth. This figure amounts to 513 trillion tons of water in one year. This number is equal to the amount of rain that falls on the Earth in a year. Therefore, water continuously circulates in a balanced cycle, according to a ‘measure.’
Life on Earth depends on this water cycle. Even if all the available technology in the world were to be employed for this purpose, this cycle could not be reproduced artificially. Even a minor deviation in this equilibrium would soon give rise to a major ecological imbalance that would bring about the end of life on Earth. Yet, it never happens, and rain continues to fall every year in exactly the same measure, just as revealed in the Qur'an.
Every year, the amount of water that evaporates and that falls back to the Earth in the form of rain is ‘constant’: 513 trillion tons. This constant amount is declared in the Qur'an by the expression ‘sending down water in due measure from the sky.’
