The Secrets of Water in Quran
The Pure water, the Fresh water and the Saline water
Written by: Eng. Abdul-Daim Kaheel
In this article we will see that the Quran tackles the different types of waters and categorizes them according to there degree of purity. The Qur'an identifies the "distilled" water which is rainwater as the pure water, names the "fresh" water that we drink from rivers and wells the "sweet" water and names the sea water that holds a high percentage of saltiness as "bitter" water. It has been established scientifically the distinction between these kinds, and this what we will cover thoroughly in the coming sections. It's worthy to note the single drop of water contains five thousand million of water molecules!!! How many do the world seas include!!?
The Qur'an speaks about Distilled Water
Allah, all grandeur to Him says in His Glorious verses:
(And it is He who sends the winds as good tidings before His mercy, and We send down from the sky pure water)The Criterion, 48.
I have contemplated on this verse for a long while and discovered that it tackles precisely the specifications that scientists label now days as "Distilled Water". They have revealed that the water we drink contains many substances and organisms. The single cup of drinking water we think is pure, carries millions of minute organisms like bacteria and viruses, and contains mineral substances like iron, copper, aluminum, sodium, magnesium and calcium. In addition it also contains organic substances like carbon, dust and other substances, all included in what we call as "pure" water.
Scientists have discovered that this water can be purified by heating it until the boiling point of 100 degrees Centigrade, then accumulating vapor, condensing it and then cooling it. As a result, you get distilled water that is pure to a great extent .Scientists say that the best kind of distilled water is rain water right before it descends to the ground and mixes with polluted particles in the air.
The civilization of this age has generated many of the pollution; the falling of rainwater cleans the atmosphere because the rainwater that is distilled is distinguished by its characteristic for the absorption of substances. It absorbs from the atmosphere, sulfur and other substances and minerals such as poisonous lead subsequently the rainwater's essence is acidic .On the contrary, the past rainwater was pure because the atmosphere was not polluted.
