Science says that the whole of the earth , before taking its present shape, was completely immersed in water- a huge ocean. Allah (SWT) then caused a volcano to erupt at a certain area (underwater) and lava and magma started to gush out and they kept on gushing till a mountain hill appeared. It is scientifically known that the whole of the earth was one piece and then God caused deep rifts to appear, which helped in separating the cracked pieces of land apart forming the well-known seven continents.
Here the hadith talks about a hill over water and surrounded by water and from this piece of land the earth was spread and that is completely in agreement with the geological studies. Taken into account such agreement, the Ka’abah’s floor must be the oldest place in the world.
