Third Rock

Posted By Snow at 3/12/2011

Layers of the Earth

OK. So let's get to know our home planet. The Earth. (^-^)

This third rock from the sun is made of several distinct layers:
1. The atmosphere (gas) - protects life on Earth
2. The crust - comprising the lands & oceans
3. The mantle (semi solid) - where the internal heat circulates
4. The core (liquid & solid) - iron, source of the magnetic field

OK. I simply wanna know why the earth quakes. So. If I understand it right - the Earth's crust is actually broken apart as plates و الأرض ذات الصدع [Q86:12] - which fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Intense heat from the Earth’s core causes these plates to move. [wtu] And as it meet at cracks (fault lines), sometimes, things don't go smoothly & this releases energy - causing the ground to shake. والله أعلم


Warmer material rises, colder material falls

This plate movement is called plate tectonics. [web | video] It is due to the heating (rising) and cooling (falling) of the mantle from the hot core, known as convection. So is this movement like the water cycle?
اعوذب لله من الشيطان الرجيم
وترى الجبال تحسبها جامدة وهي تمر مر السحاب
صنع الله الذي أتقن كل شيء إنه خبير بما تفعلون
And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. (It is) the work of Allah, who perfected all things. Indeed, He is Acquainted with that which you do. [Holy Quran 27:88] ماشاء الله
And when 2 plates collide & uplifts vast land area - this forms mountains. These mountains reduces the earthquakes. "To relieve the stress, mountain ranges are often formed in the over riding land mass while earthquake prone zones are formed below" وألقى في الأرض رواسي أن تميد بكم [Q16:15]


والجبال أوتادا [Holy Quran 78:7 | video]
So is this how the mountains peg the earth?

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors
Only Allah SWT Knows Best والله أعلم


Condolences to the people of Japan
May Allah SWT Helps

Narrated Abu Huraira
Allah's Messenger said, "Allah said, 'If My slaves loves the meeting with Me, I too love the meeting with him; and if he dislikes the meeting with Me, I too dislike the meeting with him.' " (See Hadith No. 514, Vol. 8)
[SB 9.93.595]

At the centre of this calamity, a smaller, human story has caught the world’s attention: the sacrifice of the so-called Fukushima 50 – the technicians who stayed behind to keep repair efforts going on Tuesday after radiation levels surged, forcing most of the 800 workers to evacuate.

On Twitter, a young woman who says her father is a technician at the site has been reporting snippets of his ordeal. “I’ve never seen my mother cry so much,” she posted on the day of the radiation spike and evacuation. “Please come back alive, dad.”

The Everest's summit are remnants of an ancient sea floor! ماشاء الله [discovery]

So. Does this support the theory that tectonic movements split the Red Sea? That the seabed rises, separating the Red Sea between its mountains? [Q26:63]

I seek refuge to Allah SWT from errors.
Only Allah SWT knows best. والله أعلم
