1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims in the Noble Quran:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

Allah Almighty Said: "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and inside their selves, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

With this said, let us now look at what Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran:

Noble Verse(s) 10:5
Yusuf Ali:

[010:005]  It is He Who made the sun to be a shining glory and the moon to be a light (of beauty), and measured out stages for it; that ye might know the number of years and the count (of time). Nowise did God create this but in truth and righteousness. (Thus) doth He explain His Signs in detail, for those who understand.

Arabic (from right to left):

10:5 هو الذين جعل الشمس ضياء والقمر نورا وقدره منازل لتعلموا عدد السنين والحساب ماخلق الله ذلك الا بالحق يفصل الايات لقوم يعلمون

 

Noble Verse(s) 36:39
Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

[036:039]  And the moon! We destined it to return in stages until it comes back like the dried out branch of the date tree!

Arabic (from right to left):

36:39 والقمر قدرناه منازل حتى عاد كالعرجون القديم

 

Noble Verse(s) 6:96
Yusuf Ali:

[006:096]  He it is that cleaveth the day-break (from the dark): He makes the night for rest and tranquillity, and the sun and moon for the reckoning (of time): Such is the judgment and ordering of (Him), the Exalted in Power, the Omniscient.

Arabic (from right to left):

6:96 فالق الاصباح وجعل الليل سكنا والشمس والقمر حسبانا ذلك تقدير العزيز العليم

 

Noble Verse(s) 55:5
Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[055:005]  The sun and the moon run on their fixed courses (exactly) calculated with measured out stages for each (for reckoning, etc.).

Arabic (from right to left):

55:5 الشمس والقمر بحسبان

 

Noble Verse(s) 9:36
Yusuf Ali:

[009:036]  The number of months in the sight of God is twelve (in a year)- so ordained by Him the day He created the heavens and the earth; of them four are sacred: that is the straight usage. So wrong not yourselves therein, and fight the Pagans all together as they fight you all together. But know that God is with those who restrain themselves.

Arabic (from right to left):

9:36 ان عدة الشهور عند الله اثنا عشر شهرا في كتاب الله يوم خلق السماوات والارض منها اربعة حرم ذلك الدين القيم فلاتظلموا فيهن انفسكم وقاتلوا المشركين كافة كما يقاتلونكم كافة واعلموا ان الله مع المتقين

 

Noble Verse(s) 32:5
Pickthall:

[032:005]  He directeth the ordinance from the heaven unto the earth; then it ascendeth unto Him in a Day, whereof the measure is a thousand years of that ye reckon.

Arabic (from right to left):

32:5 يدبر الامر من السماء الى الارض ثم يعرج اليه في يوم كان مقداره الف سنة مما تعدون

 
Please visit: The speed of light in the Noble Quran. (By Dr. Zaghloul Al-Naggar)

What about the Bible's thousand years = one-GOD Day?

Let us look at what the Bible says:

"But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.  (The NIV Bible, 2 Peter 3:8)"

It is obvious that the wording of 2 Peter 3:8 is different from Noble Verse 32:5.  The Noble Quran's Verse is talking about precise calculations, timing and distance of how much time it takes for Allah Almighty's Command to execute especially that Allah Almighty clearly mentioned that we must do our calculations by the Lunar calendar's calculations (10:5 the moon is precisely used for knowing the number of years and reckoning).  As I mentioned in point #5 in the next section below:

"For Noble Verse 32:5, above, the speed of light is calculated accurately to the third decimal using the lunar-year calculation and the measurement, using laser, the distance and speed of the moon's orbit, in the Noble Quran.  This is one of the reckonings that the lunar calculations accurately give us according to both the Noble Quran and Science."

Also, Allah Almighty gave a precise and accurate calculation from the Gregorian calendar to the Lunar one.  Point #7, in the main section below, gives the detailed Scientific calculations for Noble Verse 18:25.

2 Peter 3:8, on the other hand, doesn't talk about any Lunar calculations, nor does it talk about any execution of the Commands of Allah Almighty.  It only gave two general and vague statements: "...a day is like a thousand years..." and "....and a thousand years are like a day...."  There don't seem to be much mathematics in these two statements.

Now certainly, it is highly probable that 2 Peter 3:8 is either a copy or a remnant of an original Divine Command from GOD Almighty.  We Muslims believe that there exist either original or close-to-original commands in the man-altered and corrupt Bible [2].

 

Noble Verse(s) 70:4
Yusuf Ali:

[070:004]  The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:

Arabic (from right to left):

70:4 تعرج الملائكة والروح اليه في يوم كان مقداره خمسين الف سنة

Noble Verse(s) 18:9-18:27
Yusuf Ali:

[018:009]  Or dost thou reflect that the Companions of the Cave and of the Inscription were wonders among Our Sign?

[018:010]  Behold, the youths betook themselves to the Cave: they said, "Our Lord! bestow on us Mercy from Thyself, and dispose of our affair for us in the right way!"

[018:011]  Then We draw (a veil) over their ears, for a number of years, in the Cave, (so that they heard not):

[018:012]  Then We roused them, in order to test which of the two parties was best at calculating the term of years they had tarried!

[018:013]  We relate to thee their story in truth: they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We advanced them in guidance:

[018:014]  We gave strength to their hearts: Behold, they stood up and said: "Our Lord is the Lord of the heavens and of the earth: never shall we call upon any god other than Him: if we did, we should indeed have uttered an enormity!

[018:015]  "These our people have taken for worship gods other than Him: why do they not bring forward an authority clear (and convincing) for what they do? Who doth more wrong than such as invent a falsehood against God?

[018:016]  "When ye turn away from them and the things they worship other than God, betake yourselves to the Cave: Your Lord will shower His mercies on you and disposes of your affair towards comfort and ease."

[018:017]  Thou wouldst have seen the sun, when it rose, declining to the right from their Cave, and when it set, turning away from them to the left, while they lay in the open space in the midst of the Cave. Such are among the Signs of God: He whom God, guides is rightly guided; but he whom God leaves to stray,- for him wilt thou find no protector to lead him to the Right Way.

[018:018]  Thou wouldst have deemed them awake, whilst they were asleep, and We turned them on their right and on their left sides: their dog stretching forth his two fore-legs on the threshold: if thou hadst come up on to them, thou wouldst have certainly turned back from them in flight, and wouldst certainly have been filled with terror of them.

[018:019]  Such (being their state), we raised them up (from sleep), that they might question each other. Said one of them, "How long have ye stayed (here)?" They said, "We have stayed (perhaps) a day, or part of a day." (At length) they (all) said, "God (alone) knows best how long ye have stayed here.... Now send ye then one of you with this money of yours to the town: let him find out which is the best food (to be had) and bring some to you, that (ye may) satisfy your hunger therewith: And let him behave with care and courtesy, and let him not inform any one about you.

[018:020]  "For if they should come upon you, they would stone you or force you to return to their cult, and in that case ye would never attain prosperity."

[018:021]  Thus did We make their case known to the people, that they might know that the promise of God is true, and that there can be no doubt about the Hour of Judgment. Behold, they dispute among themselves as to their affair. (Some) said, "Construct a building over them": Their Lord knows best about them: those who prevailed over their affair said, "Let us surely build a place of worship over them."

[018:022]  (Some) say they were three, the dog being the fourth among them; (others) say they were five, the dog being the sixth,- doubtfully guessing at the unknown; (yet others) say they were seven, the dog being the eighth. Say thou: "My Lord knoweth best their number; It is but few that know their (real case)." Enter not, therefore, into controversies concerning them, except on a matter that is clear, nor consult any of them about (the affair of) the Sleepers.

[018:023]  Nor say of anything, "I shall be sure to do so and so tomorrow"-

[018:024]  Without adding, "So please God!" and call thy Lord to mind when thou forgettest, and say, "I hope that my Lord will guide me ever closer (even) than this to the right road."

[018:025]  So they stayed in their Cave three hundred years, and (some) add nine (more)

[018:026]  Say: "God knows best how long they stayed: with Him is (the knowledge of) the secrets of the heavens and the earth: how clearly He sees, how finely He hears (everything)! They have no protector other than Him; nor does He share His Command with any person whatsoever.

[018:027]  And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, and none wilt thou find as a refuge other than Him.

18:9 ام حسبت ان اصحاب الكهف والرقيم كانوا من اياتنا عجبا

18:10 اذ اوى الفتية الى الكهف فقالوا ربنا اتنا من لدنك رحمة وهيئ لنا من امرنا رشدا

18:11 فضربنا على اذانهم في الكهف سنين عددا

18:12 ثم بعثناهم لنعلم اي الحزبين احصى لما لبثوا امدا

18:13 نحن نقص عليك نباهم بالحق انهم فتية امنوا بربهم وزدناهم هدى

18:14 وربطنا على قلوبهم اذ قاموا فقالوا ربنا رب السماوات والارض لن ندعوا من دونه الها لقد قلنا اذا شططا

18:15 هؤلاء قومنا اتخذوا من دونه الهة لولاياتون عليهم بسلطان بين فمن اظلم ممن افترى على الله كذبا

18:16 واذا اعتزلتموهم ومايعبدون الا الله فاووا الى الكهف ينشر لكم ربكم من رحمته ويهيئ لكم من امركم مرفقا

18:17 وترى الشمس اذا طلعت تزاور عن كهفهم ذات اليمين واذا غربت تقرضهم ذات الشمال وهم في فجوة منه ذلك من ايات الله من يهد الله فهو المهتد ومن يضلل فلن تجد له وليا مرشدا

2-  Detailed Analysis on the Noble Verses:

There are few points to notice here:

1-  Allah Almighty in all of the above Noble Verses made the sun and the moon for time and date reckonings/calculations.

2-  Allah Almighty made special emphasis on the moon's positions (i.e., orbits) being used for knowing the number of years and reckoning in Noble Verse 10:5.  So there is no question that the moon's stages and phases, in Noble Verses 36:39 and 10:5, are referring to the moon's positions in space (i.e., its cycles and its various orbits).

3-  Allah Almighty also said that the moon moves in different orbits and positions that ultimately end up looking like an old and twisted date-tree branch in Noble Verse 36:39.  See the next main section below, or visit this detail article on this site for the details.

4-  The number of months for the year in Islam are 12 months (9:36).

5-  For Noble Verse 32:5, above, the speed of light is calculated accurately to the third decimal using the lunar-year calculation and the measurement, using laser, the distance and speed of the moon's orbit, in the Noble Quran.  This is one of the reckonings that the lunar calculations accurately give us according to both the Noble Quran and Science.

6-  The Angels and the Holy Spirit, in Noble Verse 70:4, seem to travel in a speed that is at least 50 times faster than the speed of light!

7-  In Noble Verse 18:25, above, Allah Almighty accurately calculated the difference between the Lunar and Gregorian calendars:

From http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/scientific_13.html:

(More Scientific proofs are provided in the next section below)

CALCULATING THE LUNAR YEAR

It is He Who appointed the sun to give radiance, and the moon to give light, assigning it phases so you would know the number of years and the reckoning of time. Allah did not create these things except with truth. We make the Signs clear for people who know. (Qur'an, 10:5)

And We have decreed set phases for the moon, until it ends up looking like an old date branch. (Qur'an, 36:39)

In the first of the above verses, Allah has clearly revealed that the Moon will be a means of measurement for people to calculate the year. Furthermore, our attention is also drawn to the fact that these calculations will be performed according to the positions of the Moon as it revolves in its orbit. Since the angles between the Earth and Moon and the Moon and Sun constantly change, we see the Moon in different forms at different times. Furthermore, our ability to see the Moon is made possible by the fact that it is illuminated by the Sun. The amount of the lighted half of the Moon we see from Earth changes. Bearing in mind these changes, a number of calculations can be made, making it possible for human beings to measure the year.

In former times a month was calculated as the time between two full moons, or the time it took the Moon to travel around the Earth. According to this, one month was equal to 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. This is known as the "lunar month." Twelve lunar months represent one year, according to the Hijri calendar. However, there is a difference of eleven days between the Hijri calendar and the Gregorian calendar, in which a year is the time it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun. Indeed, attention is drawn to this difference in another verse:

They stayed in their Cave for three hundred years and added nine. (Qur'an, 18:25)

We can clarify the time referred to in the verse thus: 300 years x 11 days (the difference which forms every year) = 3,300 days. Bearing in mind that one solar year lasts 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.5 seconds, 3,300 days/365.24 days = 9 years. To put it another way, 300 years according to the Gregorian calendar is equal to 300+9 years according to the Hijri calendar. As we can see, the verse refers to this finely calculated difference of 9 years. (Allah knows best.) There is no doubt that the Qur'an, which contains such pieces of information, which transcended the everyday knowledge of the time, is a miraculous revelation.

Note:  More Scientific proofs are provided in the next section below.

8-  The Noble Quran, undoubtedly, serves as a clear and irrefutable confirmation and evidence that the Lunar Calendar is indeed the most accurate calendar of all, and it is the calendar that Allah Almighty wants us to use according to the Noble Quran.

 

 

3-  The Scientific Proofs:

The following articles confirm the data above:

 

Article #1:

From: Moon's S-shaped orbit around earth is shaped like a branch of a date tree, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science:



(Click on any of the images to enlarge)


 
"Eclipses, be they solar or lunar, occur when the Earth, Sun and Moon are in a line. If the Moon is in-between the Earth and the Sun, it blocks the view of the Sun from some parts of the Earth, and this produces a solar eclipse. If, on the contrary, it is the Earth that is in-between the Sun and Moon, then the earth will block the light from the Sun before it can get to the Moon. Since moonlight is just the light the Moon reflects from the Sun, this will darken the Moon, and we get a lunar eclipse.

Since the Moon goes around the Earth every 28 days, shouldn't we expect a solar eclipse about every 28 days (when the Moon is new), and a lunar one in the same period, (when the Moon is full) ?

Well, this would be so if the orbit of the Moon were in the same plane as the orbit of the Earth around the Sun. But we know eclipses are rarer than that; and the Moon's orbit is not in the same plane. Instead, it is tilted with respect to it, and the Moon does not in general pass directly on the Earth-Sun line. Moreover, the Moon's orbit tilt varies slowly. To have an eclipse, then, it is not enough that the three bodies be in the right order; the Moon's orbit should also be at the right tilt."

    Article #2:

    We already saw above the accurate calculation of differences between the Lunar and the Gregorian calendars in both the Noble Quran and Science:

    "In former times a month was calculated as the time between two full moons, or the time it took the Moon to travel around the Earth. According to this, one month was equal to 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes. This is known as the "lunar month." Twelve lunar months represent one year, according to the Hijri calendar. However, there is a difference of eleven days between the Hijri calendar and the Gregorian calendar, in which a year is the time it takes the Earth to orbit the Sun. Indeed, attention is drawn to this difference in another verse:

    They stayed in their Cave for three hundred years and added nine. (Qur'an, 18:25)

    We can clarify the time referred to in the verse thus: 300 years x 11 days (the difference which forms every year) = 3,300 days. Bearing in mind that one solar year lasts 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45.5 seconds, 3,300 days/365.24 days = 9 years. To put it another way, 300 years according to the Gregorian calendar is equal to 300+9 years according to the Hijri calendar. As we can see, the verse refers to this finely calculated difference of 9 years. (Allah knows best.) There is no doubt that the Qur'an, which contains such pieces of information, which transcended the everyday knowledge of the time, is a miraculous revelation." (Source)

     

    Article #3:

    The part in red confirms Dr. Harun Yahya's scientific claims about Noble Verse 18:25 above:

    "A lunar calendar is a calendar that is based on cycles of the moon phase. The only widely used purely lunar calendar is the Islamic calendar, whose year always consists of 12 lunar months. A feature of a purely lunar year, on the Islamic calendar model, is that the calendar ceases to be linked to the seasons, and drifts each year by 11 or 12 days, and comes back to the position it had in relation to the solar year every 33 or 34 Islamic years. It is used predominantly for religious purposes. In Saudi Arabia it is also used for commercial purposes." (Source)

     

    Article #4:

    Again, the part in red confirms Dr. Harun Yahya's scientific claims about Noble Verse 18:25 above:

    "The Islamic calendar or Muslim calendar (Arabic: التقويم الهجري; at-taqwīm al-hijrī; Persian: تقویم هجری قمری ‎ taqwīm-e hejri-ye qamari; Turkish: Hicri Takvim; also called the Hijri calendar) is a lunar calendar used to date events in many predominantly Muslim countries, and used by Muslims everywhere to determine the proper day on which to celebrate Islamic holy days. It is a lunar calendar having 12 lunar months in a year of about 354 days. Because this lunar year is about 11 days shorter than the solar year, Islamic holy days, although celebrated on fixed dates in their own calendar, usually shift 11 days earlier each successive solar year, such as a year of the Gregorian calendar. Islamic years are also called Hijra years because the first year was the year during which the Hijra occurred—Islamic prophet Muhammad's emigration from Mecca to Medina. Thus each numbered year is designated either H or AH, the latter being the initials of the Latin anno Hegirae (in the year of the Hijra)." (Source)

    4-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    In Noble Verses 10:5, 36:39, 6:96, 55:5, 9:36, 32:5, 70:4, 18:9-27 above, we've seen ample stunning Scientific Miracles that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.  As I discussed in the 8 points that I mentioned above, the Lunar Calendar is undoubtedly the most accurate calendar of all, and it is the calendar that Allah Almighty wants us to use for accurate calculations of dates.  Now knowing that science always refutes the man-made and man-altered false religions out there, starting from the pagans' Hinduism and ending with the polytheist trinitarian pagans' Christianity, it is indeed very comforting to see that the confirmed and proven science and the Divine Religion of Islam always be in perfect harmony and agreement!  And why should this be a surprised?  We can only expect this type of accuracy and Truth from our Creator and His Holy and Pure Words.  So certainly this only serves to prove that Islam is indeed a Divine Truth and Religion from the Creator of the Universe, Allah Almighty, all Praise and Glory are due to Him Alone.

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

    The egg-shaped earth's orbit!

    This is not the only time Allah Almighty used a notion for astronomy.  In another Noble Verse, He described the shape of the earth's orbit around the sun as egg-shaped which had also been confirmed by science.

    Please visit: If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic? with detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha".

    The following Question-Answer exchanges are some of the very thorough and beneficial regarding the Scientific Miracles of the Sun and the Moon in the Glorious Quran.

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1311.msg4866.html#msg4866:

      

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

    '' Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.'' (25:61)

     In the above Ayah Allah says He has placed great stars in the Heaven and also place therein a lamp (Sun) and a luminous moon. Okay I don't understand why Allah differentiated the stars and the Sun. Why does Allah only address the sun as a lamp while we know that there are much more bigger luminous stars than the sun in the universe? And does this verse mean there is only one Sun and one moon in the Heavens? But it's not possible as I have told you earlier that our Universe consists of many Sun like stars and also Moons.

     Please clarify this.

    Answer:

    Hello brother Farhan!

    I wanted to let you know that this verse (25:61) uses the word that is more accurately translated as constellations. So right away, you know that this verse is referring to the human perception of the sky! We see constellations and patterns in the sky, so it is our perception. So this verse is adhering to human perception to explain a beautiful phenomena of creation. Next you notice that the Quran says that Allah placed a burning lamp in the sky and a moon. In no way does this mean there is only one burning lamp or one moon, it is just stating that there is a burning lamp and a moon in the sky.

    There are a few things that you need to notice about this verse. In no way does this verse say that the sun isn't a star, or that there is only one moon.

    Next there is another verse in the Quran that addresses the STARS as being LAMPS, just as the sun is.

    Quran 24:35 Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from [the oil of] a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things.

      

    Question:

    thanks brother.

     But can I have some more proof that Quran doesn't say that there is only one moon and one sun? Can you show anymore verse where Allah refers to the stars as lamps? And can you make it more clearer why do you think the verse is talking about human perception? It will Inshallah convince me.

    PLEASE HELP

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

    Brother Mclinkin94, great answer akhi.  May Allah Almighty bless you.  Ameen.

    I would like to add that Allah Almighty created the creatures on earth to live by day and night.  Some planets, and even parts on this earth, have very long days cycles and very long nights cycles.  Normal life on earth was designed by an equal rotation of the day and night.  So by Divine Design, Allah Almighty placed the moon to be our night light, and for the sun to be our glorious star.

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said the following:

    ‏91:1 والشمس وضحاها
    ‏91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
    ‏91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها


    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"



    Did you know our shining and glorious days, on a clear day, are a magnification of the sun's rays by our atomosphere?  Outside our atmosphere, the universe is pitch black!  And Allah Almighty Said that it is our day that magnifies and glorifies the sun's brightness.  Please visit:

    Question:

    '' It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.''(36:40)

     Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.


     Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

     And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?

    Answer:

    '' It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.''(36:40)
      
    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    People were asking the Prophet, peace be upon him, if the sun and the moon were ever going to collide.  The people thought that the sun and the moon were both running on one lane or line or orbit or path, and that they're together, and that if one slows down, then the other would catch up to it and they'd ultimately collide Allah Almighty responded to this nonsense by making it absolutely clear that the sun and the moon are traveling in entirely different orbits, and that they could not catch up to each others and collide.  So what the empty anti-Islamics of today try to prove as a scientific blunder in the Holy Quran turns out to be an accurate Scientific Statement and a Scientific Miracle of its time.

    Also,  the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped.  Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
      
    Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.
      
    Same exact reponse as above.  Yes, they're not on the same orbit.  This is Scientifically estabilished.  And again, the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped.  Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
      
    Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how?

    And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?
      
    Allah Almighty started the Noble Verse with speaking only about the sun and the moon, and the night and the day.  But ended it by saying ALL swimming in their independent orbits.  This is referring here to all celestial bodies in the Universe.  This is further clearly proven in other Noble Verses where Allah Almighty talking about the orbits of the celestial bodies, and how once in space, traveling becomes in orbits.  Please visit the following video of Dr. Zaghloul Al-Najjar.  He thoroughly and beautifully explained this beautiful Miracle in the Holy Quran with ample examples and details:

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/day_layer_reveals_the_sun_brightness.wmv

    All celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits) in space.  The video in the link speaks about the countless orbits in the Universe, and the day-layer reveals the sun's brightness.  This video is about Noble Verses 32:5, 34:2, 57:4, 70:3-4 and others, and the Arabic words عرج , عروج , معارج  and  معراج  that all refer to "going in an orbital and curvy path" in the Glorious Quran and our Islamic Texts.

    Question:

    And the moon darkens.(75: 8 )

    And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

    Can anyone explain the above verses? Why Allah says that the moon and the sun will be joined? As sun is much bigger than the moon , it should swallow it not get joined with it. I'm confused. I have read some articles where they say that through these verses Allah says that Sun will swallow the Moon before the Final Hour. But the verse uses ''JOINED'' not ''SWALLOWED''. Or is it talking about Solar eclipse? If so then the translation might me wrong.

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    Here are the Noble Verses:

    ‏75:7 فاذا برق البصر
    ‏75:8 وخسف القمر
    ‏75:9 وجمع الشمس والقمر
    ‏75:10 يقول الانسان يومئذ اين المفر

    [075:007]  At length, when the sight is dazed,
    [075:008]  And the moon is buried in darkness.
    [075:009]  And the sun and moon are joined together,-
    [075:010]  That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"


    I believe this is a Prophecy about a Great Eclipse that will take place.  This actually makes sense, since when the Hour Comes, the Universe's orbits' path will turn into a spegetti mess on a massive scale, and all celestial bodies will be colliding violently with each others.  So it makes sense that:

    1-  Our atmosphere will change, and hence it will greatly effect our visions, since the sun rays are all magnified and become glorious, as we know them, through our atmosphere as Allah Almighty mentioned clearly in the Glorious Quran:

    ‏91:1 والشمس وضحاها 
    ‏91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
    ‏91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها 

    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"
     
    Please visit: http://www.quransearch.com/sun_rays_miracle.htm


    Lunar Eclipses do blur and permanently damage the eye's cornea:

    The following pictures certainly prove the points above.  Another point worth mentioning is that when the Hour Comes, the sun's rays might be much much more than what they already are today.  There are several Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran that indicate that this will actually happen:

    http://www.quransearch.com/water_shall_vanish.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/galaxy_explosion.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/end_of_times_volcanoes_caused_by_stretching_of_earth.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/ac20.htm#links



    In the case, the lunar eclipse would be far greater than what it appears to be in the following pictures:







    When watching the lunar eclipse outside, special Eye Shields are required to prevent blindness and/or permanent eye damages, especially to the cornea:






    2-  Because of the chaos in the orbits, our solar system's orbits will also go in chaos, and hence the sun's and the moon's orbits will cross each others, and an eclipse will occur as a result.

    3-  When the events in point #2 happen, then the sky will darken and the moon will be buried in darkness.

    Great question dear brother, Farhan!  I will add this on the website with more elaborations, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

     I'm still confused about these verse:

      And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

     Even if it is talking about solar eclipse, why it says that sun and moon will be joined? We know during Solar Eclipse, the moon comes in between the Sun and the Earth. Moon is not joined. Please, can you explain this in detail?

    Answer:

    Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,

    It is possible that the moon will eventually be swallowed by the sun, along with all of our solar system's celestial bodies.  We've seen above already how this Noble Verse is talking about the Great Lunar Eclipse when the Hour Comes.  As to the language of the sun and the moon will be joined together, while it is about a lunar eclipse, but it could also be referring to the moon eventually leaving its orbit here around earth and be devoured by the sun.  You see, the two immediate celestial bodies to us humans that our naked eyes could see up close and personal, from our view here on earth, are:

    1-  The moon.
    2-  The sun.

    And they are the most relevant and vital celestial bodies for our life here on earth.  So if Allah Almighty spoke in limited language about the sun and the moon, it doesn't limit the event to just them.  But to us humans, since these two celestial bodies are what we see in considerable size and clarity from earth here, then they are the most relevant to us.  Plus as I said, they are the most relevant and vital to our life here on earth as well.  So Allah Almighty putting emphasis on the sun and the moon wouldn't mean that the Noble Verse is limited to just them.

    As to the Arabic جمع (joined) in Noble Verse 75:9 above, it could very well be referring to being aligned together according to our view and perspective here on earth.  جمع is both a noun and a simple past in Arabic:

    1-  جمع means a group for a noun.
    2-  جمع means joined together, came together, summoned together, brought together, put together for a simple past.

    The Noble Word would be very appropriate and suitable if Allah Almighty spoke about the Great Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour Comes.  And we see very clearly from the full context in Noble Verses 75:7-10, in the previous posts above, that Allah Almighty did indeed speak about a Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour comes.

    I know I've written an article years ago about these Noble Verses.  I will update it with these new posts today, Insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

    I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah
