The cloud

Allah says “Seest thou not that Allah Makes the clouds” [24:43] In another Quranic verse He tells us what the brothers of Yusuf said to Yusuf “We have (now) brought but scanty capital” [12:88] Scanty capital means what is gradually paid. As far as the gradual formation of clouds, Quran says: “Seest thou not that Allah makes the clouds more gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a heap? – then will thou see vain issue forth from their midst” [24:43]. When we study the cloud which is the form of a heap we find that originally it was scanty & scattered pieces of clouds. Gentle air operates to join them together. A heap of cloud gets formed when a cloud or two gets formed quickly and consequently a current of air also gets formed within the cloud. However due to pressure within the cloud the air climbs up & the cloud or clouds become more fused & united with each other & this leads again to pressure of air between the other clouds which on its turn climbs up & unites more clouds with each other and heaps of clouds get formed. A vertical development takes place & leads to packing of clouds on each other & form heaps of clouds. There is a speed process of arranging succeeding which increase the weigh of clouds and decreases the temperature. The center of the clouds become more heavy & more cold & consequently the rain falls. The above Quranic verse indicated this process in a clear meaning by terms such as “Clouds move gently” “join them together” “then makes them into a heap” “rain issue forth from their midst”. Modern science exerted hard to decipher the above process whereas it has been revealed in Quran before fourteen centuries. The more people read Quran the more faithful & believers they would be.
