An Naba النبأ in ENGLISH
Sūrat an-Nabaʼ (Arabic: سورة النبأ, “The Tidings”, “The Announcement”) is the seventy-eighth chapter (sura) of the Quran with 40 verses. Its forty verses are divided into two equal parts of twenty verses each. The first twenty are filled with the wonders of the worldly creation (the earth, plants, the peace of night shared by loving couples, the mountains and rain). The latter twenty are filled with the eternal wonders and horrors of the next world with raging sinner (the Arabic root TGY "tageena" is used) being punished starkly opposed with the rewarding of dutiful believers (the Arabic root WQY "mutaqeena" is employed as a poetic parataxis to TGY) in paradise
In Surah An-Naba, Allah (SWT) states: “Have We not made the earth a resting place? And the mountains as stakes?” (Quran, 78:6-7). In a book by geophysicist Frank Press called ‘Earth’ (1986), he explains how the mountains are like stakes and are buried deep within the earth’s surface . Mt. Everest which has a height of approximately 9 km above sea level has a root deeper than 125 km – thus only reinforcing the Quranic revelation of the importance and strength of mountains on our earth.
