Short Clip – The Scientist and the Qur’an (9) – Mountains and Pegs (4)
Written, produced and directed by Farouq Abdul-Aziz.

For me for one! I always understood that the reference in verse 7, chapter 78 to:
and the mountains as pegs
means that every mountain has its own peg.
I was wrong! In an exclusive interview Geologist Dr. Farouk El Baz corrected my, and I believe most of other people’s, information. So did my guest in another exclusive interview, the New Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Colonel Richard Varley, the Exeter University Geography graduate who contributed to the topic.
The word ‘pegs’ has been the 4th Qur’anic word that led Varley to Islam.
