Tarjumatul Quran - Surah al-Nahl [The Honeybee]: 1 -17
Verse 16: Many scholars have translated the phrase أَن تَمِيدَ بِڪُمۡ as 'quake' which if accepted would mean that God is recounting His bounties upon mankind by reminding them that He has created mountains to cause great earthquakes spelling much destruction far and wide. Unfortunately, it is ignored that the word تَمِيدَ is derived from مآد with means to provide food. The word مَائدة used in 'The Holy Quran' is from the same infinitive. With this meaning in view the entire understanding of this verse will be transformed. It will remind mankind that God has created mountains which are essential for providing food to all living beings. The water is constantly lifted from lakes, seas and oceans by evaporation and carried to higher altitude to get condensed into thicker particles. The existence of mountains is essential for turning the vapour into water again, thus producing widespread rains which are channelled back to earth to create immense food chains. This translation is the only one which fits into the context and is in perfect agreement with the remainder of the verse. The relation of water to food is obvious. In the history of civilisation the rivers played the most important role in making the mountainous terrains and paths were carved along the courses of rivers. 4 June 1996. © The Tahir Archive / MTA International, 2013.
