Question-Answer Exchanges:

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:

PLEASE HELP

[067:005]  And we have, (from of old), adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones, and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire.

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? 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?
  
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

Did you know that the Glorious Quran declares that the earth is:
  • Spherical.
  • Suspended in Space.
  • Traveling in Space.
  • Revolves around itself, or its own axle?
      
  • Also, all celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits [2] [3] [4] [5]) in space.  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.
      
      
    A STUNNING Hadith [1] [2] [3] [4] from Prophet Muhammad regarding the rising and setting POINTS:


      
    Question:

    Did Prophet Muhammad know think that the earth was spherical or flat?

    Answer:

    In this Hadith, above, he certainly seems to have known this fact very well.  And this Hadith is even older than Sahih Bukhari.  It is important to know that Imam Bukhari and others have declared that they have discarded thousands of Hadiths:

    www.islamic-awareness.org/Hadith/bukhari.html

  • "The two sahih collections did not gather the totality of the authentic ahadith as proved by al-Bukhari's testimony: "I have not included in my book al-Jami` but what is authentic, and I left out among the authentic for fear of [excessive] length."
      

  • "... Bukhari, collected twenty thousand of them, of which he rejected ten thousand, accounting them untrue. Of the remaining ten thousand he accepted only 7,275, declaring the rest to be untrustworthy. Abu Da'ud accepted as authentic only 4,800 rules out 50,000."

  •   
    This is to keep their volumes as simple and manageable as possible.  So it is quite possible that the Prophet spoke about the earth being spherical, and the Glorious Quran certainly did, and
    people just dismissed them as nonsense.  I have covered your question in great details at:

    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,
    Osama Abdallah

      

    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

    Important Notes on the Scientific Notions
    in the Noble Quran:

    Why does the Noble Quran use words that have multiple meanings?

    Why should we accept the scientific meaning of the Word in the Noble Quran that fits our discoveries today, and not accept any of its other meanings, especially that the Word was revealed 1,500 years ago?


    1-  The use of scientific notions in the Noble Quran:

    It is important to know that the Noble Quran doesn't give scientific equations.  It instead gives many scientific notions that had been proven today to be clear Scientific Miracles because they fit perfectly with modern science.  One of the Divine Miracles of the Noble Quran is that Allah Almighty (through His perfect use of the complex and artistic language of Arabic) used scientific notions to make the Noble Quran truly dynamic for all the times that It is presented in. These scientific notions hid in them, for many centuries, the scientific statements and discoveries that we just came to know today, and perhaps are even hiding in them more statements that our future generations will discover.  These notions are basically key words and/or terms that describe certain creations of GOD Almighty.  For example:

    1-  Allah Almighty in one Word said that the Universe is expanding and in another term said it will shrink back again.  Science confirmed that today through the big bang and the cosmic crunch theories.

    2-  Allah Almighty in two Words mentioned the layers of waves and darkness inside the vast oceans.  Science today, again, confirmed that.

    3-  Allah Almighty in one Word said that He made the earth as an egg.  We all know today that earth is spherical and science did confirm that the earth is indeed egg-shaped.  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? (detailed proofs demonstrating the miracle of the Word/Notion "dahaha").

    4-  Allah Almighty in few terms in several Noble Verses said that mountains prevent the earth from shaking.  Science today did indeed confirm that mountains stabilize the earth and prevent it from constantly shaking while it is rotating around its own axle.

    5-  Allah Almighty in one term talked about the earth reducing in size.  Science today indeed confirmed that earth is shrinking in size due to volcanoes and earth "debris" caused by erosions, earthquakes, sea-waves changing the shape and condition of the land and other natural factors, escaping to space.  In fact, it is estimated that earth lost approximately 10-40 miles from its radius or depth size in the past 10 or so billion years!  (I heard this from Dr. Zaghloul Al-Naggar on TV.  My numbers may not be quite accurate because I am relying on memory, but the fact of the earth shrinking is definitely true, and in the link above I have provided several quotes from Western scientists demonstrating why the earth is reducing/shrinking in size).

    6-  Allah Almighty mentioned in one term the moon's fault line.  Science today confirmed that the moon's fault line, which is splitting it in half, was caused by major moonquakes.

    7-  Allah Almighty in one term talked about the earth's 7 properties.  Science today confirmed that the earth has 7 inner layers and 7 atmospheric layers.

    8-  Allah Almighty in one term talked about the region inside the human-brain that controls the movements.  Science today confirmed that.

    Many more examples (and the list is growing) are provided at: The overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran section.

    The Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him, was already accused of being crazy by the infidels.  Have Allah Almighty given sophisticated scientific statements that covered exact details as we scientifically know them today, then no one would've believed the Prophet of Islam, because:

    1-  He wasn't a scientist and such science wasn't known to man back then, which makes it impossible for him to explain it, even if Allah Almighty Inspired it to him.  The information would not have been understood by the nomad bedouins 1,500 years ago.

    2-  People had already inclined toward declaring the Prophet as an insane man, and many already did.  Any extraordinary supernatural statement that requires a lot of scientific explanations such as "we have people standing on the other side of the world (under our feet), and all humans are actually standing on the side of the earth not on its top or back."

    Such statement would require knowledge in gravity and astronomy, which man did not know about 1,500 years go.

    Like I said, many have accused the Prophet of being a madman.  Allah Almighty did not want to complicate Islam, especially to the people who did not know much about science:

    "Say (to them O Muhammad SAW): "I exhort you on one (thing) only: that you stand up for Allahs sake in pairs and singly, and reflect (within yourselves the life history of the Prophet SAW): there is no madness in your companion (Muhammad SAW), he is only a warner to you in face of a severe torment."  (The Noble Quran, 34:46)"

    "And (O people) your companion (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is not a madman;  (The Noble Quran, 81:22)"


    That is why Allah Almighty used scientific notions instead of statements and equations.  They are for man to discover as he advances in life.  The more man advances, the more he will find that many of his discoveries are mentioned in the Noble Quran.  That is why the Noble Quran's Miracles are for all times and all places!

    Again, please also visit:  The overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran section.

     

    2-  The complex language of Arabic:

    Arabic is a very complex, artistic and poetical language by nature!  A single word can mean a host of meanings.  The art and beauty of Arabic comes in how a person constructs and puts together words to form a sentence or paragraph.  The art and creativity in the style and poetry are what determine the strength and beauty of the sentence or poem.  That is why the Noble Quran is extremely difficult to understand sometimes, even by the fluent and professional Arabic speakers.  That is why Muslims always say that the translations of the Noble Quran do it absolutely no justice, because the poetry and complexity of language-art are completely compromised in the translation.  What the English reader, for instance, is left with when reading the English Noble Quran, is the subject that the Noble Verses are talking about.  But he/she doesn't see the beautiful and complex stylistic and linguistic Divine Miracle that the Arabic text carries in it.

    At any rate, Allah Almighty Chose for the Noble Quran to be Difficult to comprehend, and to be quite a challenge to interpret and translate, because:

    1-  He Chose to have the Miracle of the Noble Quran be an ever lasting one by living in the text of the Holy Book Itself.

    2-  To demonstrate Its Divinity to the Arabs back then, who were very experienced/mature, fluent and also addicted to poetry, along with the Arabic-speaking people today, and to challenge them and to show them that certainly the Noble Quran is not just an average everyday book.  It is indeed a Divine Miracle, proving that Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, is indeed a Truthful and real Prophet.

    3-  This is Allah Almighty's way to Lead to the Right Path whom He pleases and to Lead astray whom He pleases.

     

    Motion of the Earth in the Noble Quran:

    The following article was sent to me by sister Sundus, may Allah Almighty always be pleased with her.  Because the web site is located in an unstable URL (geocities, angelfire, Xoom, etc...), I decided to copy it to my site so that it would get preserved permanently.

    By the way, please visit my detailed rebuttal to Avijit Roy's article, paragraph for paragraph, at:  Does the Noble Quran support "The Earth moves around the Sun" theory?

    The following article is located at: http://www.geocities.com/thetruebook/Earthmotion.htm

    Also, I have a much more detailed article written at: The Motion of Earth in the Holy Quran - A detailed article using 7 Arabic dictionaries.  Also, the Holy Quran declares that the Earth is Egg-ShapedSee also Earth Rotation in the Holy Quran.

     

     

    Refutation For Avijit Roy 

    (he wrote) An Open Challenge to my Muslim Friend

    The Muslims who still believe that the Qur'an is unique, the Qur'an is amazing, the Qur'an is miracle, the Quran is scientific, the Quran is accurate....... for them I place a simple challenge here:

    In Arabic "ARD" means the Earth and "FALAK" is rotation/movement. Can you show me any of the verses from the Quran that contains these two words one after another ?

     

    I'm sure that you will not be able to because it is not stated anywhere in the Qur'an. I give you my challenge is this regard : If you can prove it, I'll apologize to you all for my previous misconceptions, delete this page from the World Wide Web and convert to Islam at once. (1)

     

    In response to Mr. Avijit

    I red this article some days before in which Mr. Avijit Roy confidently proved that Quran does not mention the "the Motion of the earth". After I had finished the article , I pray to Allah that if Quran is the word of God then show me motion of the earth in the Quran. And thus He show me. 

     

    Motion of the earth in Quran

    Have we not made the earth kifaata?

    {Al-Quran 77:25}

    Allah says in the Holy Quran that Allah made the earth kifaata. The motion of the earth is hidden beyond this word. Lets see the wideness of the word kifaata & how beautifully Allah is describing us the motion of the earth.

     

    When the word kifaata, use with birds, the meaning will be "a bird, with contracting its furs, flying fastly." (lughat-ul-Quran).

     

    The similar word when use with horse, the meaning will be "the horse become uncontrolled and the traveler can't able to control it. (Lughat-ul-Quran).

     

    And when this word "kifaata" used with earth then it will meant that the earth is fastly moving (flying) keeping all creatures and its movement is not controllable by traveler (all creatures). Now let us read this verse again with this translation.

    Have WE not made the earth a fast moving object with den of storage?

    {Al-Quran 77:25}

     

    Second verse regarding motion of the earth:

    "Have We not made the earth as a cradle and the mountains like pegs?"

    {Al-Quran 78:6-7}

    The Arabic word used for cradle is "Mihaada". (Mufridaat-ul-Quran). The Quran compares the earth to a cradle because a cradle is a place of rest that is engaged in motion. 

     

    Third Verse Regarding Motion Of the Earth

    And the earth is  wada'aha for the creatures

    {Al-Quran 55:10}

    "wada'atinnaaqah" means " a running camel" (lughat-ul-Quran)

    "Wada'aturrajul" means "a running man" (lughat-ul-Quran)

     

    We observed that the word "running" common in both meanings, hence in the above verse the word "wada'a" used with the earth. thus the translation of this verse will be,

    And the earth, is a running object for the creatures

    {Al-Quran 55:10}

     

    4th Verse Regarding Motion Of the Earth

    Who has made for you the earth as a farsh.....

    {Al-Quran 2:22}

    Farasha means a "flying insect" like moth, mosquito etc. This meaning of farash is used in the following verse of the Holy Quran:

    "youma yakoomun naaso ka al_faraashil mabsoos"

    It is a day where on mankind will be like moths (farash) scattered about.

    {Al-Quran 101:4}

    Hence when Allah says that the earth is farsh then it meant that the earth is like a flying insect which is proving motion of the earth.

     

    Conclusion:

    Yes, I am still believing that Qur'an is unique, the Qur'an is amazing, the Qur'an is miracle, the Quran is scientific, the Quran is accurate. Motion of the earth is clearly mention in the Quran which is proving that Quran is a word of Allah.

    And now my challenge to all those who criticized the Quran:

     If you are in doubt as to that which We have revealed to Our servant, then produce a chapter like it (Without any mistake, total in agreement with true scientific facts, which describes history in great details, and it also predict the future events and it should be most comprehensive: in short, it produces the same results as Quran produces after implement ) and call on your witnesses besides Allah if you are truthful. But if you do (it) not and never shall you do (it), then be on your guard against the fire of which men and stones are the fuel; it is prepared for the unbelievers.

    [Al-Quran 2:23-24]
