HOW MANY SUNS AND MOONS DID ALLAH CREATE? (PLEASE HELP)

Assalamualykum.

HOW MANY SUNS AND MOONS DID ALLAH CREATE?
 
http://aloloomenglish.net/vb/showthread.php?693-How-many-Suns-and-Moons-did-Allah-create

The above article claims that Allah said in the Quran that there is only one moon and one sun. But how can it be true? According to modern cosmology there are probably millions of Suns and Moons in our Universe!!!!!


 I know, I asked the same question on the forum some days ago and I also got some answers. But still I'm not convinced. Please help me.

Because I know the material of such sites and how their owners lack the most basic manners , because I know they can't spend few seconds without mentioning reproductive organs and terms of sexual intercourse , I won't bother with the link . I'll say it directly : Where in Quran does it say there is only one moon and one sun ? And please don't quote from the page without removing filth . Don't harm us with it . Unless they answer that question , this allegation , along with all the others , go to the nearest dump .

Assalamualykum.


 Allah said:


 Blessed be He Who has placed in the heaven big stars, and has placed therein a great lamp (sun), and a moon giving light
Al-Furqaan: 61



 In the above Allah said, a moon and a great lamp . Does this mean that there is only one great lamp and one moon? Some might say this verse is talking about our perception. What's the proof? The word '' Buruj'' in the above verse can mean galaxies or constellations. So does this mean there is only one moon and one sun in the galaxies?

As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

First of all, a moon is a planet.  Our moon is called a "moon" because it "belongs" to planet earth.  But in reality, it is just a planet.  And the Holy Quran did talk about the planets and the planet-like celestial bodies, such as big asteriods, moons, etc...:

[082:002]  When the planets are dispersed,

‏82:2 واذا الكواكب انتثرت

I know some English translations translate Kawaakib كواكب as stars, but kawaakib is plural of kawkab كوكب, and kawkab does also mean an actual planet.  It could also refer to celestial bodies in general, including stars.  But planet in Arabic does mean kawkab كوكب; singular of kawaakib كواكب.

To further prove my claims, let us also look at the following Noble Verse:

[006:076]  When the night fell, he saw a (shining) planet. "Maybe this is my Lord," he said. When it disappeared, he said, "I do not like (gods) that disappear."

‏6:76 فلما جن عليه الليل راى كوكبا قال هذا ربي فلما افل قال لااحب الافلين

Here Prophet Abraham, peace be upon him, probably saw planet Venus or Mercury shining in the middle of the night.  The Noble Verse speaks about a single planet, and not a plural of stars.  There are plenty of stars shining at night.  But here the Noble Verse is speaking about a single shining planet كوكب.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Farhan , do we need to go back to the first year of high school and read the unit of logic in math book ? Allah said he put a moon and a sun . In what world does that mean he didn't make any other ones ? If I say "I have a car" does it necessarily mean I don't have any other cars ?
