When the rain falls it may
1. become puddle
2. Goes into the river
3. Used by us
4. Goes back into the ocean
5. Absorbed by the earth
Allah makes the water absorbed by the earth to stop at certain level.
Al Mulk 67: 30
Say (O Muhammad SAW): “Tell me! If (all) your water were to sink away, who then can supply you with flowing (spring) water?”
Al Mu’minoon 23: 18
And We sent down from the sky water (rain) in (due) measure, and We gave it lodging in the earth, and verily, We are Able to take it away.
We talked about water table. This is an easy to read article explaining about water table. HERE.
When the pressure contained in the space of water table is high, the water comes out of the earth as spring, fountain and river. Subhanallah!
.We looked at diagrams. And pointed out that Allah created the impermeable rock so water does not get lost into the earth but rather very accessible to us. We talked about how people can access the water by making well.
We also talked that human are using water table alot especially in countries with limited water resources.
Let us take heed of Allah’s warning that if Allah wants, He can take the water table away in any way He sees fits.
