Shorelines

Shorelines recede.

Global warming is causing the ice at the poles to melt which in turn causes the level of world oceans to rise, consequently all shores recede. This is portrayed in the Quran:

(Quran 13.41) Do they not see how We deal with the land (الْأَرْضَ), diminishing it at its edges? Allah judges; and nothing can hold back His judgment. And He is quick to settle accounts.

In Arabic Ard الْأَرْضَ means "Earth" and it also means "Land". Shores are edges of the land. Land is diminishing at its edges because of rising sea waters.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known about receding shores?

The water cover about 71% of the Earth's surface. This is also the same ratio the word "Water" and word "Land" appear in the Quran. "Water" 32 times and "Land" 13 times. The ratio of "Water" to the total (Water + Land) = 32/(32+13) = 71%.

(The Christian Bible says that Earth floats over water Psalms 136:6)
