The above facts make it crystal clear how Allah with His magnanimous power of creation created earth and other celestial bodies, and created a great system of protection of earth by providing it with mountains to maintain its balance while rotating with a tremendous speed of 65,000 miles per hour on its orbit and rotating 1,038 miles per hour on its axis, more over He created the power of gravitation between the celestial bodies to keep them in their tracks and orbits.
