Sura 13
Aya 41
أَوَلَم يَرَوا أَنّا نَأتِي الأَرضَ نَنقُصُها مِن أَطرافِها ۚ وَاللَّهُ يَحكُمُ لا مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكمِهِ ۚ وَهُوَ سَريعُ الحِسابِ

Mir Aneesuddin

Or do they not see that We certainly give the earth its reduction from its borders1. And (when) Allah commands none can reverse His command and He is Quick at (settling) the account.
  • Contraction of the Earth: This may refer to the contraction of the earth's crust while cooling from a very hot molten state to the present condition. Even today the major portion of the earth's interior is hot and in a molten state.
