Earthquake And The Holy Qur'an

WE have in the earth
firm mountains 
it should quake 
with them; 
WE have made therein
wide pathways, 
they maybe rightly guarded.
- Surah Al-Anbiya'  (The Prophets):32

WE punished each of them
for his sins; 
of them 
were some on whom  
WE sent Hasib 
(a violent wind with shower of stones) 
(as the people of Lut (Lot)), 
and of them 
were some  
who were overtaken 
by As-Saihah 
(torment - awful cry. 
(as Thamud or Shu'aib's people), 
and of them 
were some whom
WE caused the earth 
to swallow 
(as Qarun (Korah), 
and of them 
were some  
whom WE drowned 
(as the people of Nuh (Noah),  
or Fir'aun (Pharaoh) 
and his people). 
It was not ALLAH 
Who wronged them, 
they wronged themselves. 
- Surah Al-'Ankabut (The Spider):40  

O mankind! 
Fear your LORD 
and be dutiful to HIM! 
the earthquake of the Hour 
(of Judgment) 
is a terrible thing. 
The Day you see it, 
every nursing mother 
will forget her nursling, 
and every pregnant one 
will drop her load, 
and you shall see mankind 
as in a drunken state, 
they will not  be drunken,
but severe 
will be  the torment of ALLAH.
- Surah Al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage):1-2  

Do you then  feel secure
that HE  will not cause
a side of the land 
to swallow you up, 
or that 
HE will not  send against you
a violent sand-storm? 
you shall find  no Wakil
(guardian - one to guard you 
from the torment).
- Surah Al-Isra' (Journey By Night):68  

do you feel secure 
that HE, 
Who is over the heaven 
will not send  against you
a violent whirlwind? 
you shall know 
how (terrible) 
has been  MY  Warning?
And indeed 
those before them  belied
(the Messengers of ALLAH), 
then how terrible 
was MY denial (punishment)? 
- Surah Al-Mulk (Dominion):17-18)  

HE has set firm  mountains
in the earth 
so that it will not shake 
with you... 
- Surah An-Nahl (The Bees) 

Those before them 
indeed plotted, 
ALLAH struck at the foundation 
of their building, 
and then 
the roof fell upon them,
from above them, 
and the torment  overtook them
from directions 
they did not perceive.
- Surah An-Nahl (The Bees):26 

Do then 
who devise evil plots 
feel secure 
ALLAH will not sink them 
into the earth, 
or that 
the torment 
will not seize them 
from directions 
they perceive not? 
- Surah An-Nahl (The Bees):45 

When the earth 
is shaken 
with its (final) earthquake. 
when the earth 
throws out its burdens. 
man will say: 
"What is the matter with it?" 
That Day 
it will declare 
its information 
(about all that happened  over it
of good or evil). 
your LORD 
will inspire it. 
That Day 
mankind will proceed 
in scattered groups 
that  they may be shown
their deeds. 
whosoever does good 
equal to the weight 
of an atom (or a small ant) 
shall see it. 
whosoever does evil 
equal to the weight 
of an atom (or a small ant) 
shall see it."  
-Surah Az-Zalzalah :1-8
