THE EARTH Article(s)  
How old is earth
The Bible provides a chronology of history that extends back to the creation of Adam and Eve and to the creation of the earth. From this chronology it is possible to determine the date of the creation and hence the age of the earth.
The history of earth
Say: "Journey in the land, then behold how He originated creation" (Qur’an The Spider: 20)
From a Gaseous Mass to the Heavens and the Earth
The Qur'an was revealed in the seventh century. Many statements pertaining to physical phenomena are dispersed throughout the Qur'an. These are there in the Qur'an to draw the attention of people to the wonders of Allah's creation.
How many earths
If you open the Quran to the first surah, you will notice it begins as follows: "In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds." Worlds? Not just one? Yes . . . worlds! There is the physical world, the spiritual world, the world of bacteria, and so forth. That, obviously, is one sense in which we can understand 'worlds'.
What shape is the earth
Today we can look at a globe and know that the earth is somewhat like a ball, a sphere. The Qur'an makes certain statements that led Muslim scientists to understand long before their European counterparts that the earth is spherical. When Europe was in the dark ages thinking that the earth was flat, Muslim students were using globes for studying the earth in Islamic universities.
Shape of Earth
"Have you not seen how God merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night?" (Qur’an 31:29; also see 3:27; 22:61; 35:13; 57:6)

Mountains as anchors
Todays vast amount of knowledge including Geology defines some functions as to why Allah(God) created mountains and hills on Earth, these functions were foretold by the Holly Quran over 1400 years ago: “And We have placed in the Earth firm hills lest it quake with them (Qur’an The Prophets: 31)
Lowest point on earth
The Geological lowest point on Earth is as now Scientist discovered is in Jurusalem. This is imphatically stated in the Holy Quran 1400 years ago in the Romans Chapter. Infact it corectly predicted the future happening of the Romans victory.
Seas and rivers
Modern Science has discovered that in the places where two different seas meet, there is a barrier between them. This barrier divides the two seas so that each sea has its own temperature, salinity, and density....
Deep sea currents
"Or as darkness on a vast, abysmal sea. There covers it a wave, above which is a wave, above which is a cloud. Layer upon layer of darkness." (Qur'an 24:40)
Deep seas and internal waves
Or (the unbelievers’ state) is like the darkness in a deep sea. It is covered by waves, above which are waves, above which are clouds. Darknesses, one above another. If a man stretches out his hand, he cannot see it.... (Quran 24:40)
