Gravity

Gravity is curvature of spacetime.

There are three possibilities to how the universe could end: Big Rip, Big Crunch or Big Chill. NASA recently ruled out the first scenario (No Big Rip; see also: Universe Today). This leaves the universe with only two possible endings: Big Crunch or Big Chill.

Stephen Hawking’s proposal predicted that the Universe would eventually stop expanding and collapse in on itself (Big Crunch).

Lastly, it predicted that the Universe would eventually stop expanding and collapse in on itself.
Here's Stephen Hawking's final theory about the Big Bang.

In the Quran God promises to make the Big Crunch:

[Quran 7.187] They ask you about the Hour, "When will it come?" Say, "Knowledge of it rests with my Lord. None can reveal its coming except He. It weighs heavily on the heavens and the earth. It will not come upon you except suddenly." They ask you as if you are responsible for it. Say, "Knowledge of it rests with Allah," but most people do not know.

The Quran used the term "weighs ثَقُلَتْ " which means by gravity. But from General Relativity we know that gravity is curvature of spacetime. We also know that wormholes are equivalent to folding spacetime like a book.

[Quran 21.104] On the day when We will fold the heaven, like the folder compacts the books, and as We originated the first creation We shall return it; a promise (binding on Us); surely We will deliver.

Here God promises to make this Big Crunch however by folding the heaven like a book.

So in one verse God promises to make the Big Crunch by gravity and in another verse by folding spacetime like a book. Since both verses are the same then in the Quran gravity is curvature of spacetime.

How could an illiterate man who lived 1400 years ago have known that gravity is curvature of spacetime?

(According to the Bible Earth's gravity is so strong that it will make stars fall on Earth: In Mark 13:24-30 Jesus said that stars will fall on Earth before his second coming. Actually he said that stars will fall on Earth before even that generation passes away. However that generation passed away a long time ago and no star ever fell on Earth nor ever will.)
