whereas the oceanic mountains are made of volcanic rocks.

Continental mountains were formed by compressional
forces, whereas the oceanic mountains were formed by
extensional forces. But the common denominator on both
mountains are that they have roots to support the
mountains. In the case of continental mountains, light-low
density material from the mountain is extended down into
the earth as a root. In the case of oceanic mountains, there
is aso light material supporting the mountain as a root, but
in the case of oceanic mountain this material is not light
because the composition is light, but it is hot, therefore
expanded somewhat. But from the viewpoint of densities,
they are doing the same job of supporting the mountains.
Therefore, the function of the roots are to support the
mountains according to the law of Archimedes.

proved to be a great scholar. In the third edition of his
book he did make some additions. This book has been
translated, as we mentioned previously, into eight
languages including Russian, Chinese, Japanese, German,
Italian, Portuguese and Yugoslavian. This book enjoys
worldwide distribution and is read by many of the worlds
foremost scientists.

Professor Moore states in his book about the Middle ages

that: "Growth of science was slow during the medieval
period, and few high points of embryological investigation
undertaken during this age are known to us. It is cited in the
Qur'aan, the Holy Book of the Muslims, that human
beings are produced from a mixture of secretions from the
male and the female. Several references are made to the
creation of a human being from a sperm drop, and it is
also suggested that the resulting organism settles in the
woman like a seed, six days after its beginning (The
human blastocyst begins to implant about six days after
fertilization. See Figure 4.1)."
Fig. 3.2

Thus modern scientists all over the world today can come
to know that the Qur'aan has been revealed from Allahs
knowledge. As Allah the Almighty has told us: Allah bears
witness that what He has sent unto thee He has sent with
His (own) knowledge. (Qur'aan 4:166).

It also follows that modern-day scientists should have no

difficulty in acknowledging that the Prophet Muhammad
(peace be upon him), is a Messenger of Allah.
