Allah said in the Qur'aan:
Have you not seen how Allah makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it...? [Qur'aan 24:43]
There are two problems with using this verse to "prove" the divine origins of the Qur'an.
Problem 1: This is something that can be observed.
Problem 2: The explanation is incorrect.
Small clouds do not join together and "stack" up to form a thunder storm. These clouds form when warm moist air is pushed higher by a cold front. As the warm moist air rises, it cools (at the adiabatic lapse rate), therefore, it appears that the cloud is growing in height as water vapor condenses.
And He sends down hail from mountains (clouds) in the sky, and He strikes with it whomever He wills, and turns it from whoever He wills. The vivid flash of its lightning nearly blinds the sight. [Qur'aan 24:43]
No kidding, did you need a divine revelation to tell you this?
Honestly, this is an observation which could be made by anyone!
OK, that is what the textbook says, however, the Qur'an mentions none of this!
