Cloud Seeding Quran and Science

📖Quran 15:22
We send fertilizing winds, and bring down rain from the sky for you to drink. It is not you who hold its reserves.

  • This verse is scientifically correct. It describes the natural phenomenon of winds and rainfall, and highlights the fact that human beings do not control these resources. The Quranic verse states that Allah (God) sends “fertilizing winds” and “rain from the sky” for people to drink. This is consistent with the scientific understanding of how rainfall occurs. Rainfall is formed when water vapor in the air condenses and falls to the ground in the form of precipitation, such as rain or snow. The process of condensation is aided by the movement of air, which is often driven by winds. Furthermore, the verse acknowledges that human beings do not control these natural resources. This is also scientifically accurate. While we have developed methods to collect and store rainwater, we cannot create rainfall or control the direction of the wind. Thus, this verse reminds us of the importance of being grateful for the natural resources that sustain us and recognizing our limitations in controlling them.


  • Cloud seeding is a type of weather modification that aims to change the amount or type of precipitation that falls from clouds by dispersing substances into the air that serve as cloud condensation or ice nuclei, which alter the microphysical processes within the cloud. The usual intent is to increase precipitation (rain or snow), but hail and fog suppression are also widely practised in airports, where harsh weather conditions are experienced.
