Mountains are honoured by Allah, calling his Prophets to caves and paths on mountains. He called Moses (PBUH) to the mountain to speak to him directly; he asked Abraham (PBUH) to take Ismael (PBUH) to the mountain for sacrifice as a trial of faith only to replace him with a sheep at the last moment. Muhammad (PBUH) was called to contemplate in the cave of Hira on a lone mountain near Makkah untill Gabriel appeared with revelation from Allah. Mountains are mentioned in the Quran to be like pegs holding the earth in place which will come bursting out on the Last Hour or Doomsday. These giants watch silently the affairs of mankind unfold at their feet, perhaps smiling at the fickleness and pride of Mankind. Letting some who try and summit them survive and tell the story of what secrets lie at the top and as for others these giants embrace them, to become one of the many secrets which the mountains keep.
