THE PROPORTION OF RAIN One of items of information given in Qur'an about rain is that it is sent down to Earth in due measure. This is mentioned in Sura Zukhruf as follows; It is He who sends down water in due measure from sky by which We bring a dead land back to life. That is how you too will be raised (from dead). (The 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 Earth. This figure amounts to 513 trillion tons of water in one year. This number is equal to amount of rain that falls on Earth in a year. This means that water continuously circulates in a balanced cycle, in a "measure". Life on Earth depends on this water cycle. Even if people used all available technology in world, they would not be able to reproduce this cycle artificially. Even a minor deviation in this equilibrium would very soon give rise to a major ecological imbalance that would bring about end of life on Earth. Yet, this never happens, and rain keeps falling every year in exactly same quantity just as revealed in Qur'an.
THE FORMATION OF RAIN How rain forms remained a great mystery for a long time. Only after weather radar was invented was it possible to discover stages by which rain is formed. According to this, formation of rain takes place in three stages. First, "raw material" of rain rises up into air with wind. Later, clouds are formed, and finally raindrops appear. The Qur'an's account of formation of rain refers exactly to this process. In one verse, this formation is described in this way: It is God Who sends winds which stir up clouds which He spreads about sky however He wills. He forms them into dark clumps and you see rain come pouring out from middle of them. When He makes it fall on those of His slaves He wills, they rejoice. (The Qur'an, 30:48) Now, let us examine these three stages outlined in verse more technically.
FIRST STAGE: " It is God Who sends winds..." Countless air bubbles formed by foaming of oceans continuously burst and cause water particles to be ejected towards sky. These particles, which are rich in salt, are then carried away by winds and rise upward in atmosphere. These particles, which are called aerosols, function as water traps, and form cloud drops by collecting around water vapour themselves, which rises from seas as tiny droplets.
SECOND STAGE: ".... which stir up clouds which He spreads about sky however He wills. He forms them into dark clumps..." The clouds are formed from water vapour that condenses around salt crystals or dust particles in air. Because water droplets in these clouds are very small (with a diameter between 0.01 and 0.02 mm), clouds are suspended in air, and spread across sky. Thus, sky is covered in clouds.

THE RELATIVITY OF TIME Today, relativity of time is a proven scientific fact. This was revealed by Einstein's theory of relativity at early years of 20th century. Until then, people did not know that time was a relative concept, and that it could change according to environment. Yet, great scientist Albert Einstein openly proved this fact with theory of relativity. He showed that time is dependent on mass and velocity. In history of humanity, no one had expressed this fact clearly before. With one exception though; Qur'an included information about time's being relative! Some verses about subject read: They ask you to hasten punishment. God will not break His promise. A day with your Lord is equivalent to a thousand years in way you count. (The Qur'an, 22:47) He directs whole affair from heaven to earth. Then it will again ascend to Him on a Day whose length is a thousand years by way you measure. (The Qur'an, 32:5)
