Fault Lines  

Cracks and fault lines  

Earth's crust is full of cracks and fault lines. This was only known recently. However the Quran said that Earth had cracks long before it was discovered:

[Quran 86.12] And the Earth that has faults.

"Tasaddaa in Arabic تصدَّعَ" means got cracked. In this verse "Sadaa صَّدْعِ" means the crack itself. Here the Earth has internal cracks.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that Earth has faults?
