China’s Rainbow Colored Mountains in the Quran – Surah Fatir

The Rainbow Mountains, located in China’s Zhangye Danxia Landform Geological Park are considered one of the geological wonders of the world. These mountains take their colors from the colorful rock formations and are a major tourist destination. This site was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Normally, no one would think of any mountains to take such amazing colors but the Quran mentions the existence of colorful mountains as one of Allah’s creations. Here is the verse of the Quran and the pictures of these colorful mountains.

    Really amazing!
    By the seeing the beauty of nature one can wonder, that how beautiful the CREATOR ALLAH SUBHANO WATA AALA would be.Sometimes in even minute flowers,butterflies and various other things are so pretty,that nobody can create but only ALLAH SUBHANO WATA AALA.Quran E Kareem is the complete book that nobody can write on its own but send by ALLAH SUBHANO WATA AALA ,WHO KNOWS and sees everything of the universe and the heavens.MAY ALLAH SUBHANO WATA AALA sends lots of blessings on RASOOL ALLAH SALAL LAHO ALAIHE WASSALAM ,who has opened our eyes in this religion Islam.
    Only the people of paradise will insha ALLAH TALA see ALLAH SUBHANO WATA AALA,may ALLAH SUBHAN WATA AALA include all of us ,our families,friends and all the muslims we know and don’t know among them Aameen.
