The Famous Historical Rains in Bible and Quran
The Bible and Quran tell us about some famous Historical Rains.
The Lord sent These famous historical rains to the unbelievers and to the people who denied His messengers.
The most famous people were those who denied Noah, Lot and Moses (Pharaoh and the Egyptians).
In addition, the Quran mentions the rain sent to the people who denied Hud. Hud is not found in the Bible.
The Famous Historical Rains in the Bible:
Noah and his people:
Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made."
And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.
Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky.
I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.
Lot and his people:
The Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah.
Herein, there is a prophecy saying that:
"no one will live there; no man will dwell in it"
This prophecy never happened.
Then the LORD rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah-from the LORD out of the heavens.
He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.
As Sodom and Gomorrah were overthrown, along with their neighboring towns," says the LORD, "so no one will live there; no man will dwell in it.
As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah along with their neighboring towns," declares the LORD, "so no one will live there; no man will dwell in it.
When Moses stretched out his staff toward the sky, the LORD sent thunder and hail, and lightning flashed down to the ground. So the LORD rained hail on the land of Egypt;
Then Moses left Pharaoh and went out of the city. He spread out his hands toward the LORD; the thunder and hail stopped, and the rain no longer poured down on the land.
When Pharaoh saw that the rain and hail and thunder had stopped, he sinned again: He and his officials hardened their hearts.
Then the LORD said to Moses, "I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions.
The Famous Historical Rains in the Quran:
Noah and his people:
The Quran states that the People of Noah were punished by the "Flood".
The flood formed as a result of severe rain and gushing forth springs i.e., water was coming from upside and downside, both water met at a determined extent.
Also, the Quran never mentions the rainbow.
SHAKIR: and certainly we sent Noah to his people, so he remained among them a thousand years save fifty years. and the deluge overtook them, while they were unjust
PICKTHAL: and verily we sent Noah (as our messenger) unto his folk, and he continued with them for a thousand years save fifty years; and the flood engulfed them, for they were wrong-doers.
YUSUFALI: we (once) sent Noah to his people, and he tarried among them a thousand years less fifty: but the deluge overwhelmed them while they (persisted in) sin.
SHAKIR: so we opened the gates of the cloud with water pouring
PICKTHAL: then opened we the gates of heaven with pouring water
YUSUFALI: so we opened the gates of heaven, with water pouring forth.
SHAKIR: and we made water to flow forth in the land in springs, so the water gathered together according to a measure already ordained
PICKTHAL: and caused the earth to gush forth springs, so that the waters met for a predestined purpose.
YUSUFALI: and we caused the earth to gush forth with springs, so the waters met (and rose) to the extent decreed.
The exact translation of the verse 54:11 is:
"We exploded (blew up or burst) the earth to gush forth with many springs"
This verse preceded the sciences and predicts a way to explore what is inside the interior of the earth. When man followed this verse and exploded the earth, he would be able to find out gold, silver, metals, gazes, Oil, water etc.
Hud and Ad:
Hud Came after Noah.
Hud is a Prophet send to a people called "Ad".
Ad denied and rejected Hud.
Allah banned the rain for them.
They had great drought for a long time.
Then, see what happened:
SHAKIR: so when they saw it as a cloud appearing in the sky advancing towards their valleys, they said: this is a cloud which will give us rain. nay! it is what you sought to hasten on, a blast of wind in which is a painful punishment,
PICKTHAL: then, when they beheld it as a dense cloud coming toward their valleys, they said: here is a cloud bringing us rain. nay, but it is that which ye did seek to hasten, a wind wherein is painful torment,
YUSUFALI: then, when they saw the (penalty in the shape of) a cloud traversing the sky, coming to meet their valleys, they said, "this cloud will give us rain!" "nay, it is the (calamity) ye were asking to be hastened!- a wind wherein is a grievous penalty!
Neither Hud nor Ad is mentioned in the Bible.
Lot and his people:
The Quran does not say that the rain was burning sulfur.
The Quran (unlike the Bible) does not prophecies that the land of the people of Lot will motionless, dead lifeless and no one will dwell in it.
The Quran states that the land of Lot's people was turned upside down; this is not mentioned in the Bible.
SHAKIR: and we rained upon them a rain; consider then what was the end of the guilty
PICKTHAL: and we rained a rain upon them. see now the nature of the consequence of evil-doers!
YUSUFALI: and we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): then see what was the end of those who indulged in sin and crime!
SHAKIR: so when our decree came to pass, we turned them upside down and rained down upon them stones, of what had been decreed, one after another
PICKTHAL: so when our commandment came to pass we overthrew (that township) and rained upon it stones of clay, one after another,
YUSUFALI: when our decree issued, we turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer,-
SHAKIR: thus did we turn it upside down, and rained down upon them stones of what had been decreed
PICKTHAL: and we utterly confounded them, and we rained upon them stones of heated clay.
YUSUFALI: and we turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay.
SHAKIR: and certainly they have (often) passed by the town on which was rained an evil rain; did they not then see it? nay! they did not hope to be raised again
PICKTHAL: and indeed they have passed by the township whereon was rained the fatal rain. can it be that they have not seen it? nay, but they hope for no resurrection.
YUSUFALI: and the (unbelievers) must indeed have passed by the town on which was rained a shower of evil: did they not then see it (with their own eyes)? but they fear not the resurrection.
SHAKIR: and we rained down upon them a rain, and evil was the rain on those warned
PICKTHAL: and we rained on them a rain. and dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned.
YUSUFALI: we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!
SHAKIR: and we rained on them a rain, and evil was the rain of those who had been warned
PICKTHAL: and we rained a rain upon them. dreadful is the rain of those who have been warned.
YUSUFALI: and we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone): and evil was the shower on those who were admonished (but heeded not)!
Pharaoh and Egypt:
Unlike the Bible, the Quran does not say that the Lord rained hail on the land of Egypt but it says that Allah sent flood against Egypt.
Before the High-Dam that is built in the 1960(s), Egypt was subjected to flood every year.
SHAKIR: therefore we sent upon them widespread death, and the locusts and the lice and the frog and the blood, clear signs; but they behaved haughtily and they were a guilty people
PICKTHAL: so we sent against them the flood and the locusts and the vermin and the frogs and the blood - a succession of clear signs. but they were arrogant and became a guilty folk.
YUSUFALI: so we sent (plagues) on them: wholesale death, locusts, lice, frogs, and blood: signs openly self-explained: but they were steeped in arrogance, - a people given to sin.
