Dear Brother’s and Sister’s,

I would like to share with you two verses of the Quran that talk about the weight of clouds. Astonishingly clouds can carry up to a lot of weight as proven by modern day science and exemplified in the Quran 1400 years ago.

The Quran states:

“And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy until, when they have carried heavy rainclouds . . .” (Surah A’raf, 7:57)

“It is He who shows you lightening, [causing] fear and aspiration, and generates the heavy clouds.” (Surah Ra’d, 13:12)

The key words that should be noted in these two ayats is that Allah(SWT) mentions clouds as being heavy. 1400 years ago and even till today people may look upon clouds and it may seem like there are extremely light due to it floating in such high altitudes. However, when you calculate the weight of water inside these clouds it is very interesting that they weigh a lot. As an example, a cumulus cloud can contain up to 300, 000 tons of water which is roughly 300000000 kg or 661386786.555 pounds of water. Suban’Allah the beauty of the Quran. If you do not believe me just look it up yourself and be astonished.

Insha’Allah we all ask Allah(SWT) to forgive us, guide us, protect us, and enter us in Junnah-al-Firdaus.
