"In the northern part of Guatemala City, the downpour created a sinkhole the size of a street intersection. Residents told CNN that a three-story building and a house fell into the hole." 

Sinkhole
Sinkholes vary in size from 1 to 600 m (3.3 to 2,000 ft) both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. Sinkholes may form gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide.


Sinkholes can suddenly swallow buildings. This was known recently however this was portrayed in the Quran 1400 years ago, long before it was discovered.

Quran 28:18
So We collapsed the earth beneath him and his house. He had no company to save him from Allah, and he could not defend himself.

٨١ فَخَسَفْنَا بِهِ وَبِدَارِهِ الْأَرْضَ فَمَا كَانَ لَهُ مِنْ فِئَةٍ يَنْصُرُونَهُ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ الْمُنْتَصِرِينَ

The earth suddenly collapsed beneath him and his house. Today we know this is a sinkhole.


How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known about sinkholes?


The Quran (Koran, the book of Islam) contains scientific knowledge that could not have been known 1400 years ago. It ranges from basic arithmetics to the most advanced topics in astrophysics. You are invited to go through those miracles and judge for yourself.
