AsalamuAlaikum,

I was recently analysing Wiki-islam "Scientific errors" page to find if they had any strong contenders. And I came accross this:

Quote
Constellations Made by Allah[edit]
Constellations are essentially human observations of stars which are themselves many light years away from each other.

Blessed is He Who made constellations in the skies, and placed therein a Lamp and a Moon giving light;
Qur'an 25:61


The verse in question is:

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي جَعَلَ فِي السَّمَاءِ بُرُوجًا وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا سِرَاجًا وَقَمَرًا مُّنِيرًا
Sahih International
Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.
Muhsin Khan
Blessed be He Who has placed in the heaven big stars, and has placed therein a great lamp (sun), and a moon giving light.
Pickthall
Blessed be He Who hath placed in the heaven mansions of the stars, and hath placed therein a great lamp and a moon giving light!
Yusuf Ali
Blessed is He Who made constellations in the skies, and placed therein a Lamp and a Moon giving light;

I just lauffed away.

It truly shows how weak there contentions are becoming. That a verse that describes the heavens having stars in them as being a "Scientific Error".

I hope it made you chuckle as much as I did.

In sha Allah will make a post about this on my blog:
