In this post, we will talk about how it was created and the wonders of Earth Creation that were pointed by Almighty God ALLAH in his book, the Holy Quran.
1- “Earth Expansion” vs. “Plate Tectonics Theory”
Although the most known theory that Earth was developed into its current form by plates separation, but the new theory is much more amazing which says that Earth was expanded in volume, and because of such growth the plates were divided in its known shapes.
Quoted from “Earth Expansion Theory”
[Decades before space vehicles showed that generally the planets of our Solar System are covered by uniform shells of surface matter, that the Earth is the exception, Hilgenberg had the insight to think that the Earth should have had in the past a complete shell of continental rock covering its surface.] 
And He it is Who spread out the earth and placed therein firm hills and flowing streams, and of all fruits He placed therein two spouses (male and female). He covereth the night with the day. Lo! herein verily are portents for people who take thought. [13:3]
And the earth have We spread out, and placed therein firm hills, and caused each seemly thing to grow therein. [15:19]
And the earth have We spread out, and have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon,
Therefore, it’s clearly ALLAH says that he increased the substance of the Earth that expanded its volume and separated the plates from each others, and not by moving them apart as in Plate Tectonics Theory, and as mentioned in part (3), it was before having water on Earth.
