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

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,
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

  

  

  

The skinning of the day from the night Miracle - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

The sections of this article are:

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 36:37 and the Scientific Proofs.
2-  Conclusion.

 

 

 

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claim in Noble Verse 36:37 and the Scientific Proofs:

This article is based on Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar's [2] work; may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him.

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)"

In my previous article, I've written a detailed article on The sun rays that we see during the day are different from the ones seen in space - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!  Allah Almighty precisely Said in the Noble Quran that He Created the sun's brightness, and He Created the day on earth to reveal its light.  As clearly shown in the article with ample pictures, scientific quotes, and a video on astronomy, it is absolutely a true fact that while we have a bright day here on earth, the space above us is absolutely black!  Allah Almighty also precisely mentioned this in the Noble Quran!  This precisely means that we wouldn't have any day light if it wasn't for the day-layer that Allah Almighty Created, which He mentioned in the Noble Quran.  The Universe by default is absolutely dark (see the Noble Verses below).  The light has to be especially processed in order for it to be seen with our naked eyes.  The sun rays in space are not yellowish-white as we see them during our day here on earth.  They are rather extremely dark and bluish.  Please see the article for ample proofs and details. 

Here are some movie and film-clips that clearly and indisputably show how the Universe above us is black even during our brightest day on earth:


Click on any of the images to play the brief film-clip of the Russian Mig-25 flying on the edge of space.


Click on any of the images to play the brief film-clip from NASA during daylight.


Click on image to play the brief movie-clip.


Click on image to play NASA's brief film-clip.


Click on image to play NASA's Apollo 13 in
black space during earth's bright day.


These pictures reveal how the layers of the day and the night look like from space.


Click here for an emphasized image.

These two pictures reveal the skinning of the day-layer from the night-layer.


That is why Allah Almighty Said:

"And He is the One Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Each is afloat in its orbit.  (The Noble Quran, 21:33)"

There are also ample other Noble Verses.  The night and the day are two different entities, and they are separate entities from the sun and the moon.  They are not created by the sun and the moon.  The day, through its own unique characteristics, transforms the sun's very dark radiant lights into shinning and very bright lights, on earth.

 

This article takes these scientific facts that I mentioned above further.  Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran that He (literally) SKINS the day from the night as a Sign for humans to bring the darkness of night to them.  This means that darkness is the default stage of our universe and the day is only a layer that is on top of the dark night, and without this layer, there wouldn't be any day for us on earth.  Let us look at Noble Verse 36:37:

  

Noble Verse(s) 36:37
Yusuf Ali:

[036:037]  And a Sign for them is the Night: We withdraw therefrom the Day, and behold they are plunged in darkness;

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

[036:037]  Another proof is the night! When We strip the day off it, they are left in the dark!

Transliteration:

[036:037]  Waayatun lahumu allaylu naslakhu minhu alnnahara fa-itha hum muthlimoona

Arabic (from right to left):

36:37 واية لهم الليل نسلخ منه النهار فاذا هم مظلمون

Sher Ali:

[036:037]  And a Sign for them is the night from which WE strip off the day, and lo ! they are left in darkness.

Shakir:

[036:037]  And a sign to them is the night: We draw forth from it the day, then lo! they are in the dark;

Pickthall:

[036:037]  A token unto them is night. We strip it of the day, and lo! they are in darkness.

Sale:

[036:037]  The night also is a sign unto them: We withdraw the day from the same, and behold, they are covered with darkness:

Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

[036:037]  And a sign for them is the night, We withdraw therefrom the day, and behold, they are in darkness.

Palmer:

[036:037]  And a sign to them is the night, from which we strip off the day, and lo! they are in the dark;

Arberry:

[036:037]  And a sign for them is the night; We strip it of the day and lo, they are in darkness.

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[036:037]  Another sign for them is the night: we remove the daylight therefrom, whereupon they are in darkness.

Rodwell:

[036:037]  A sign to them also is the Night. We withdraw the day from it, and lo! they are plunged in darkness;

 

Actually, none of the above English translations is quite accurate, even though most of them are very close to being accurate such as using "strip" and "remove".  The Arabic word, نسلخ  naslakh, literally means TO SKIN, as in skinning an animal, or to PEEL OFF as in peeling an orange.  This is well-known in Arabic and also according to Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar [2] in his lecture.  So what does this mean?  Well, let us look at the following pictures.

 

Note:  Click on any of the images to enlarge them.


These pictures reveal how the layers of the day and the night look like from space.


Click here for an emphasized image.

These two pictures reveal the skinning of the day-layer from the night-layer.

 

   

According to Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar [2], the sun's brightness gets shown to us as yellowish-white light from the earth's "day-layer" (tabaqat al-nahar), which is the last layer between earth and space.  Dr. Al-Najjar said that this layer is approximately 200 kilometers thick.  Notice the tenth picture (counting from left to right) of the shooting rocket, and how he is about to exit the tabaqat al-nahar and enter into the absolute black space.  Notice how he is on the border between earth's atmosphere and the outer space.  Notice also the tabaqat al-nahar is clearly defined in the top pictures, above, along with the rest of them.

Again, that is why Allah Almighty Said:

"And He is the One Who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Each is afloat in its orbit.  (The Noble Quran, 21:33)"

There are also ample other Noble Verses.  The night and the day are two different entities, and they are separate entities from the sun and the moon.  They are not created by the sun and the moon.  The day, through its own unique characteristics, transforms the sun's very dark radiant lights into shinning and very bright lights, on earth.

Also, as the rest of the above pictures clearly reveal, there is a thin layer/line that seems to visually separate the bright earth during its bright day from the absolute black space.  This perfectly explains why Allah Almighty Said that He Created the sun's brightness, and He Created the day to reveal its brightness, because without this day-layer that Allah Almighty Created, the sun's brightness wouldn't get revealed to us and we would live in constant darkness.  Again, please see my detailed article for ample proofs from both the Noble Quran and Science. 

Now, since science has thoroughly proven that the outside space is absolutely black, even during our brightest day on earth, then this means that everything by default is dark.  Total darkness is the default and original state of our universe.  Allah Almighty clearly stated this in the Noble Quran:

"Surely, your Lord is ALLAH, who created the heavens and the earth in six periods, then HE settled Himself firmly on the Throne. HE makes the night cover the day, which it pursues swiftly, And HE created the sun and the moon and the stars - all made subservient by HIS command. Verily, HIS is the creation and the command. Blessed is ALLAH, Lord of the worlds.  (The Noble Quran, 7:54)"

"And He it is Who spread the earth and made in it firm mountains and rivers, and of all fruits He has made in it two kinds; He makes the night cover the day; most surely there are signs in this for a people who reflect.  (The Noble Quran, 13:3)"

"Another proof is the night! When We skins the day off it, they are left in the dark!  (The Noble Quran, 36:37)"

 
Allah Almighty also Said:

"And We have made the night and the day two signs, then We have made the sign of the night to pass away and We have made the sign of the day manifest, so that you may seek grace from your Lord, and that you might know the numbering of years and the reckoning; and We have explained everything with distinctness.  (The Noble Quran, 17:12)"

"Of course, the creation of the heavens and the earth, as well as the (contrast and) alternation between the night and the day offer (many) signs for those with intellect.  (The Noble Quran, 3:190)"

"Do they not consider that We have made the night that. they may rest therein, and the day to give light? Most surely there are signs in this for a people who believe.  (The Noble Quran, 27:86)"

"He it is Who made for you the night that you might rest in it, and the day giving light; most surely there are signs in it for a people who would hear.  (The Noble Quran, 10:67)"

"That is because Allah causes the night to enter into the day and causes the day to enter into the night, and because Allah is Hearing, Seeing.  (The Noble Quran, 22:61)"

"Do you not see that Allah makes the night to enter into the day, and He makes the day to enter into the night, and He has made the sun and the moon subservient (to you); each pursues its course till an appointed time; and that Allah is Aware of what you do?  (The Noble Quran, 31:29)"

"And He has made subservient to you the sun and the moon pursuing their courses, and He has made subservient to you the night and the day.  (The Noble Quran, 14:33)"

"And He has made subservient for you the night and the day and the sun and the moon, and the stars are made subservient by His commandment; most surely there are signs in this for a people who ponder;  (The Noble Quran, 16:12)"

"Allah turns over the night and the day; most surely there is a lesson in this for those who have sight.  (The Noble Quran, 24:44)"

"And He it is Who made the night and the day to follow each other for him who desires to be mindful or desires to be thankful.  (The Noble Quran, 25:62)"

Allah Almighty's Divine Statement in Noble Verse 36:37, above, about the SKINNING of the day from the night to bring back the darkness of night is in perfect agreement with science, because:

1-  Like animals' skins being attached to their flesh, our thin-layered day is attached to our night, and without this layer, we would live in constant darkness.

2-  As the earth rotates around its own axle while it's rotating around the sun, the day gets slowly and surely skinned off from the absolute black night as the sun slowly moves away from the area that it was sending its brightness on.  Again, remember that there wouldn't be any day on earth if it wasn't for the day-layer that Allah Almighty Created, which He precisely mentioned in the Noble Quran.

Note:  By the way, Allah Almighty never Said that the sun goes to sleep and/or extinguishes for any night.  Allah Almighty said that the sun is light and the moon's light is a reflected light of the sun, which means that the sun is always shining, even during the night, because its light reflects off of the moon, as mentioned in the Noble Quran.  Please visit: The Noble Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

3-  Since everything is night by default, then the day is indeed physically part of the night and is attached to it, - exactly as the skin is attached to the flesh.  The way it gets skinned off of the night is through the earth's rotation around its own axle while it is rotating around the sun.  The following links thoroughly prove this from both the Noble Quran and Science:

i-   The earth's motion: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5].

ii-  The moon's S-shaped orbit around the earth.

iii- The earth is shaped like an egg.

Note:  And again, in my previous article, I've written a detailed article on The sun rays that we see during the day are different from the ones seen in space - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!  Allah Almighty precisely Said in the Noble Quran that He Created the sun's brightness, and He Created the day on earth to reveal its light.  As I've clearly demonstrated in the article with ample pictures, scientific quotes, and the videos on astronomy, it is absolutely a true fact that while we have a bright day here on earth, the space above us is absolutely black!  Allah Almighty also precisely mentioned this in the Noble Quran!  This precisely means that we wouldn't have any day light if it wasn't for the day-layer that Allah Almighty Created, which He mentioned in the Noble Quran.  The Universe by default is absolutely dark.  The light has to be especially processed in order for it to be seen with our naked eyes.  The sun rays in space are not yellowish-white as we see them during our day here on earth.  They are rather extremely dark and bluish.  And again, please see the article for ample proofs and details. 

 

 

2-  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.

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)"

As we've clearly seen in this article and in the pictures above, Allah Almighty's Divine Statement about Him skinning the day off of the night is indeed a perfect statement that perfectly agrees with science:

The skinning of the day from the night causes for the day-layer, tabaqat al-nahar, to be moved to where sun is
facing, hence, it gets peeled off of our atmospheric layer, which by default is dark according to Noble Verses
7:54 and 13:3, above.

Scientists have just recently proven that our outside space is absolutely black, which makes our world night and black by default, and that the sun's rays are extremely dark and bluish.  The yellowish-white light that we see on earth during the day is the processed sun's brightness from our "day-layer", which is approximately 200 miles thick.  Allah almighty declared in the Noble Quran that He Created the sun's brightness, and that He Created the day on earth to reveal its light.  As clearly shown in my previous and main article with ample pictures, scientific quotes, and a video on astronomy, it is absolutely a true fact that while we have a bright day here on earth, the space above us is absolutely black!  The Universe by default is absolutely dark.  The light has to be especially processed in order for it to be seen with our naked eyes.  The sun rays in space are not yellowish-white as we see them during our day here on earth.  They are rather extremely dark and bluish.  Again, please see the article for ample proofs and details.

With all of this sound evidence established from both the Noble Quran and Science, it is little wonder to see why Allah Almighty Chose the Arabic word SKIN-OFF نسلخ  to describe the rotation of the day and the night around our planet, in the Noble Quran.  It is the day that reveals the sun's brightness as a processed light to keep our life going.  The very fact that Allah Almighty precisely mentioned this and elaborated on it further with ample Noble Verses, in the Noble Quran, is indeed a Divine Testimony about the Truthfulness of the Noble Quran and the Truthfulness of the Prophethood, of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

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 Scientific Miracles in the Noble Quran.

The sun rays that we see during the day are different from the ones seen in space - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

The Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

Prophet Muhammad's peace be upon him section.

Allah, Islam, Quran, Muhammad questions and answers.

What is the place of Jews, Christians and non-Muslims in Islam.

Ask me any question section.

The S-shaped moon orbit!

It is also relevant to know that Allah Almighty described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

Please visit: The 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!

 

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".

 

Video Files from Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar:

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 and معارج.

The day revealing the sun's lights and the moon's timing.
