Quran and the Signs Of My Lord

Assalamu alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatuh

Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their places

Q. 30:25

And among His Signs is that the heaven and the earth stand by His Command, then afterwards when He will call you by single call, behold, you will come out from the earth

Q. 35:41

Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their places, and if they were to move away from their places, there is not one that could grasp them after Him. Truly, He is Ever Most Forbearing, OftForgiving.

Vulnerable Earth:

1.Polar Motion:

The Earth’s rotation axis moves with respect to the fixed stars (inertial space); the components of this motion are precession and nutation. The Earth’s crust also moves with respect to the Earth’s rotation axis; this is called polar motion.

Causes

The slow drift, about 20 m since 1900, is partly due to motions in the Earth’s core and mantle, and partly to the redistribution of water mass as the Greenland ice sheet melts, and to isostatic rebound, i.e. the slow rise of land that was formerly burdened with ice sheets or glaciers.

2.Axial tilt:

In astronomy, axial tilt, also known as obliquity, is the angle between an object’s rotational axis and its orbital axis, or, equivalently, the angle between its equatorial plane and orbital plane

Using numerical methods to simulate Solar System behavior, long-term changes in Earth’s orbit, and hence its obliquity, have been investigated over a period of several million years. For the past 5 million years, Earth’s obliquity has varied between 22° 02′ 33″ and 24° 30′ 16″, with a mean period of 41,040 years. This cycle is a combination of precession and the largest term in the motion of the ecliptic. For the next 1 million years, the cycle will carry the obliquity between 22° 13′ 44″ and 24° 20′ 50″

3.Axial precession:

In astronomy, axial precession is a gravity-induced, slow, and continuous change in the orientation of an astronomical body’s rotational axis.

4.Earth’s Nutation:

Nutation makes a small change to the angle at which the Earth tilts with respect to the Sun, changing the location of the major circles of latitude that are defined by the Earth’s tilt (the tropical circles and the polar circles).

In the case of the Earth, the principal sources of tidal force are the Sun and Moon, which continuously change location relative to each other and thus cause nutation in Earth’s axis.

The atmospheric instability:

Q.22:65

Do you not see that Allah has subjected to you whatever is on the earth and the ships which run through the sea by His command? And He restrains the sky from falling upon the earth, unless by His permission. Indeed Allah , to the people, is Kind and Merciful.

1.Collapsing thermosphere:

NASA-funded researchers are monitoring a big event in our planet’s atmosphere. High above Earth’s surface where the atmosphere meets space, a rarefied layer of gas called “the thermosphere” recently collapsed and now is rebounding again. “This is the biggest contraction of the thermosphere in at least 43 years,” says John Emmert of the Naval Research Lab, lead author of a paper announcing the finding in the June 19th issue of the Geophysical Research Letters (GRL). “It’s a Space Age record.” The collapse happened during the deep solar minimum of 2008-2009—a fact which comes as little surprise to researchers. The thermosphere always cools and contracts when solar activity is low. In this case, however, the magnitude of the collapse was two to three times greater than low solar activity could explain. “Something is going on that we do not understand,” says Emmert.

2.Instability of Atmosphere:

Atmospheric instability is a condition where the Earth’s atmosphere is generally considered to be unstable and as a result the weather is subjected to a high degree of variability through distance and time.[1] Atmospheric stability is a measure of the atmosphere’s tendency to encourage or deter vertical motion, and vertical motion is directly correlated to different types of weather systems and their severity. In unstable conditions, a lifted parcel of air will be warmer than the surrounding air at altitude. Because it is warmer, it is less dense and is prone to further ascent.

Conclusion:

Despite the vulnerability of Earth and the atmosphere to many changes,there are predictions that they would remain stable.

According to Wikipedia:

 Mathematicians and astronomers (such as Laplace, Lagrange, Gauss, Poincaré, Kolmogorov, Vladimir Arnold, and Jürgen Moser) have searched for evidence for the stability of the planetary motions, and this quest led to many mathematical developments, and several successive ‘proofs’ of stability for the Solar System. By most predictions, Earth’s orbit will be relatively stable over long periods
