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 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 sections of this article are:

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims in Noble Verses 91:1-5.

      1-  Noble Verses 91:1-5, 15:14-16, and 6:125.
            (a)-  The sun's radiant light VS the filtered and processed light.
            (b)-  The black space and the blindness of the eyes.
            (c)-  Low air pressure and lack of oxygen.

       2-  The day is a different creation than the sun.
       3-  Our atmosphere is different from space.

2-  Why didn't Allah Almighty Say that it is the sun that reveals the day?
3-  So how do the colors of the sun-rays change?
(Scientific quotes added).

4-  The "moon that trails its light" Miracle.

      (a)-  The moon is constantly following the sun according to Scientists!

5-  Conclusion.

 

 

 

1-  Allah Almighty's Divine Claims in Noble Verses 91:1-5:

This article is based on the work of Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar [2]; 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)"

 

1-  Noble Verses 91:1-5, 15:14-16, and 6:125:

With this said, let us now look at what Allah Almighty Said in the following sets of Noble Verses:


(a)-  The sun's radiant light VS the filtered and processed light:

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, 91:1-5)"

  
Our atmosphere does indeed magnify the sun and other rays and make them luminous:


(Click to play film-clip)
While this clip is about the atmosphere displaying the
invisible Gamma Rays when they hit earth, making the
burst look like a very bright Sun, but the scientists also
said that the atmosphere does the same to the sun
rays; it magnifies them and displays them as the
luminous rays
that we enjoy on earth.


Notice how bright earth is during day-time and how
pitch black space is!
 This is a film from NASA.

A lot more film-clips and pictures proving this are displayed below in this article.

  

Note:  The Miracle of the "moon that trails its light" is discussed in main-section #4 below.

      (a)-  The moon is constantly following the sun according to Scientists!

  

Indisputable proofs that جلاها means magnifies and glorifies it:

First of all, جلاها (jallaha) is derived from جلال (jalal).  Jalal means glory and the glorifying and magnification of something.  So جلاها is to actually جلال something, or to make it جليل (jaleel) or أجل (ajal).

Here are the meanings of the words from different sources:

1-  According to Al-Mawrid (Arabic-English, English-Arabic) dictionary [4], English-Arabic section, Page 550:

  • Magnific means:
      
    1. فخيم
    2. جليل

  • 3-  According to Al-Mawrid (Arabic-English, English-Arabic) dictionary [4], English-Arabic section, Page 709:

  • Portliness means:
      
    1. جلال
    2. مهابة
        
  • Portly means:
      
    1. جليل
    2. مهيب
  • 4-  According to Al-Mawrid (Arabic-English, English-Arabic) dictionary [4], Arabic-English section, Page 426:

  • جلال means:
      
    1. Loftiness
    2. Exaltedness
    3. Sublimity
    4. Augustness
    5. Magnificence
    6. Grandeur

    11. Portliness
    12. Dignity
    13. Gravity
    14. Solemnity
    15. Splendor
    16. Glory
  • 5-  Moreover, the following English translations of the Noble Verses that contain جلال further prove the above definitions:

    1. 55:27 ويبقى وجه ربك ذو الجلال والاكرام
        
      "The only One to last and live on is your Lord _ the Lord of sublime glory and honor!  (The Noble Quran, 55:27)"
        
        

    2. 55:78 تبارك اسم ربك ذي الجلال والاكرام
        
      "Blessed is the name of thy Lord, Master of Glory and Honour.  (The Noble Quran, 55:78)"

    6-  "Glorious" in Google's English-Arabic online dictionary means:

    1. مجيد
    2. متألق
    3. رائع
    4. بهي
    5. جليل

    7-   "Glorify" in Google's English-Arabic online dictionary means:

    Note:  Again, the Miracle of the "moon that trails its light" is discussed in main-section #4 below.

          (a)-  The moon is constantly following the sun according to Scientists!

      

    Allah Almighty also Said:

    "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)"

    "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)"

    Allah Almighty also, in ample Noble Verses, talked about the day being a day-layer and the night being a night-layer, both being independent creations from the sun's and moon's lights.  Please visit: The skinning of the day from the night Miracle - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

    Allah Almighty also talked about the moon's light being a reflected light from the sun's light: The Noble Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

      

    (b)-  The black space and the blindness of the eyes:


    15:14 ولو فتحنا عليهم بابا من السماء فظلوا فيه يعرجون

    15:15 لقالوا انما سكرت ابصارنا بل نحن قوم مسحورون

    15:16 ولقد جعلنا في السماء بروجا وزيناها للناظرين

    "And even if We open to them a gateway of heaven, so that they ascend into it all the while, They would certainly say: Only our eyes have been covered over, rather we are an enchanted people. And certainly We have made strongholds in the heaven and We have made it fair seeming to the beholders.  (The Noble Quran, 15:14-16)"

    If Allah Almighty were to allow them to safely ascend to outer space, then because of the sky getting darker and darker for them until it becomes completely black, they would say that their eyes had been blinded (covered up) and that they had been bewitched.

      

    Here is how the sun looks like in space.  Notice how black space is around our sun:

    Whatever the natural color of the sun is to our normal eye in space, the sun from these pictures is indisputably not as bright as we see it during the day, and it is not the bright yellow glorious star that we see at noon.  The space around it is also pitch black.  This means that it is also not bright in space.  It is relatively very dark in space and it has a different color.  Our day-layer, indeed, magnifies its rays.  Indeed the day does جلاها.

    The following film-clips and pictures further prove that Noble Verse 91:3 is indeed a stunning Miraculous Statement.  They indisputably show how the Universe above us is black even during our brightest day on earth:

    91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها

    "By the day that magnifies and glorifies its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:3)"


    Notice how bright earth is during day-time and how pitch black space is!  This is a film from NASA.

    More new pictures: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11]

    These pictures reveal the black space above earth during the day.  Notice how there are no sun-rays in space as we see them here on earth during a bright day on earth.  The Arabic text in the first picture says "the thinness of the day's 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 and features, transforms the sun's very dark radiant lights into shinning and very bright lights, on earth.

    Now of course, Allah Almighty also did say that a person would suffocate if he were to ascend unprotected and unaided to space.  See the next sub-section.

      

    (c)-  Low air pressure and lack of oxygen:


    6:125 فمن يرد الله ان يهديه يشرح صدره للاسلام ومن يرد ان يضله يجعل صدره ضيقا حرجا كانما يصعد في السماء كذلك يجعل الله الرجس على الذين لايؤمنون

    "Those whom God (in His plan) willeth to guide,- He openeth their breast to Islam; those whom He willeth to leave straying,- He maketh their chest close and constricted, as if they had to climb up to the skies: thus doth God (heap) the penalty on those who refuse to believe.  (The Noble Quran, 6:125)"

    2-  The day, in the Noble Quran, is referred to as a different creation and/or entity than the sun:

    21:33 وهو الذي خلق الليل والنهار والشمس والقمر كل في فلك يسبحون

    "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 and features, transforms the sun's very dark radiant lights into shinning and very bright lights, on earth.

      

    3-  Our atmosphere is different from space:

    It is important to know that even during the day, when astronauts pass through our Ozone layer into space, they literally move from the light of our world into the complete black-darkness of space.  This is a well-known fact.  Therefore, Allah Almighty was perfectly accurate when He, the Almighty, called our atmosphere a "day" and "night", as clearly demonstrated in the links below, because the light that we see inside our Ozone layer is completely different from outer space, and it visually doesn't even exist outside our Ozone layer as far as our naked eyes are concerned.  That is why Allah Almighty, in the Noble Quran, distinguished between our earth's "day" and the outside space' darkness.  That is why Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran that "He Created the day and the night and the sun and the moon", in many Noble Verses, and talked about "the day reveals the sun's radiant light to us"In deed, the earth's "day" is unique to it and was created specifically for the earth, - precisely as Allah Almighty demonstrated in the Noble Quran!

    And again, as we clearly and indisputably saw above, Allah Almighty made it crystal clear about the outer space being completely dark (they would think they were blinded and bewitched as stated in Noble Verses 15:14-16) and has low air pressure and no oxygen to breath. 

    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)"

    And again, 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 and features, transforms the sun's very dark radiant lights into shinning and very bright lights, on earth.

      

    The following links fully demonstrate how Allah Almighty defined our day and night as our atmosphere or Ozone layer:

    2-  Why didn't Allah Almighty Say that it is the sun that reveals the day?

    In his video-lecture, Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar raised a very important question that unveiled Allah Almighty's Divine Claim and Miracle in Noble Verses 91:1-5:

    Why did Allah Almighty say that the day reveals the sun's lights?  To the ordinary, it is the sun that shines and reveals the light and the day, not the vise versa. 

      
    Answer:  This would be an inaccurate scientific statement, because the sun rays that we see during the day, which are yellowish-white and bright, are not the same lights and color as in outer space.  Inside our ozone layer and near the outer space (right on the borders/ceiling of our Ozone layer), the sun rays are seen in very dark colors.  The sun itself is hardly bright in space.

    The sun isn't the bright yellow star that we see during daytime, and the space around it is pitch black.  This means that it is also not bright in space.  It is very dark in space and it has a different color.  Our day-layer magnifies its rays.

    Furthermore, to the ordinary people 1,500 years ago, the sun used to "go to sleep" as it got darker and changed colors as it approached sunset, and then "wakes up" when it rises back again.  To the ordinary people, the sun has full control over the day and it was the sun that revealed the day and its colors, not the vise versa. 

    Please visit:  The earth is round, suspended in space, and is running in space - mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science.

    Now certainly, never once, did Allah Almighty Say that the sun goes to sleep and/or extinguishes for any night.  Furthermore, Allah Almighty said that the sun is a source of 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 during the night, as mentioned in the Noble Quran. 

    Please visit: The Noble Quran states that the light of the moon is reflected light.

      

      

    3-  So how do the colors of the sun-rays change?

    As Dr. Zaghlool pointed out in his video, there is a famous and simple experiment that is done in basic science classes, which is if we bring the rainbow's 7 colors, and shine them on a rotating spherical object, then the colors to that object would eventually all appear as white if the object was rotating fast enough. 

    Similarly, because our earth rotates around its own axle (the Noble Quran mentioned it [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]), and because the earth's rotation is going fast, - fast enough, - the sun's rays end up looking like yellowish-white for us and not blue or any other color, which makes Allah Almighty's Divine Claims in the Noble Quran 100% perfect when He Said that it is the day that reveals the sun rays for us, and not the sun that reveals the day for us.

    The following quotes from scientific sources clearly and indisputably prove the claims above:

      

    Article #1:

    "What color is the Sun?

    The simple answer to this question is that the Sun is yellow. Go outside and see for yourself. (But don't hurt your eyes by looking for a long time.)

    For our purpose of determining the temperature of the surface of the Sun, a more precise answer is that the intensity versus wavelength curve for sunlight peaks near 500 nm.

    But the question "What color is the Sun?" raises an interesting issue that is more closely related to biology and psychology than to physics. Physically, sunlight is a mixture of photons of different wavelengths. This particular mixture is very close to the color we call white. This is particularly true if we put back the predominantly blue light that is scattered out of a sunbeam as it comes from the Sun and passes through the Earth's atmosphere before it reaches our eyes. Why do we call this color white? Presumably, it is because after many hundreds of millions of years of evolution, our eyes and brains are adapted to viewing things that are illuminated with this particular mixture of photons. Then when humans started giving names to colors, they chose a special name for the special mixture that their eyes and brains were adapted to seeing.

    Article #2:

    "COLORS OF LIGHT

    Visible light is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that our eyes can see. Light from the sun or a light bulb may look white, but it is actually a combination of many colors. We can see the different colors of the spectrum by splitting the light with a prism. The spectrum is also visible when you see a rainbow in the sky.
     

    Rainbow Picture
     

    The colors blend continuously into one another. At one end of the spectrum are the reds and oranges. These gradually shade into yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The colors have different wavelengths, frequencies, and energies. Violet has the shortest wavelength in the visible spectrum. That means it has the highest frequency and energy. Red has the longest wavelength, and lowest frequency and energy."  (Source)

     colour temperature What colour is the Sun?

     Colour Quiz Home Colour Quiz Homepage

     


    Blackbody

    Colour as a function of temperature

    The above is supposed to show, as accurately as possible on a computer screen, how the colour of a radiating blackbody varies with its temperature. The two vertical bars of colour at each end of the colour chart are the colours at zero and infinite temperature. Evidently the limiting colours are not much different from the colours at 1,000 K and 50,000 K. I confess a little disappointment at the high temperature result: I was hoping that the colour there would be more violet.

    chromaticity diagram The chromaticity diagram at right shows the blackbody trajectory as a black line labelled with temperature in Kelvin. This chromaticity diagram, constructed using a corrected version of John Walker's cietoppm utility, is the same as shown on the spectrum Where's purple? page.

    The blackbody colours in the colour chart at top and in the diagram at right were computed by integrating the monochromatic tristimuli X, Y, Z from the CIE 2 tables over a Planck distribution. The resulting blackbody tristimuli were transformed to R, G, B, then gamma-corrected to R, G, B, as described on the spectrum Where's purple? page.

    Blackbody colours at temperatures around 5000-7000 K are nearly white, and the choice of white point is important if one wants to render these colours accurately. On these pages I have adopted CIE D65 as white, but of course this may not accurately represent the white point R = G = B of your monitor.

    Introduced by CIE in 1963, the D series of standard illuminants are intended to represent `daylight' at various correlated colour temperatures, with D65 to be used whenever possible. The precise (slightly complicated) definition of these illuminants can be found in R. W. G. Hunt (1987) ``Measuring Colour''. The `correlated colour temperature' is the temperature of the blackbody that is, in a certain well-defined sense, nearest in colour. The subscript 65 on D65 signifies a correlated colour temperature that was originally 6500 K, but thanks to a revision of the combination hc/k of fundamental constants in the Planck formula is now defined to be (1.4388/1.4380) 6500 K  6504 K (the latest NIST value is hc/k = 1/0.6950387 cm K = 1.438769 cm K, but apparently the definition of correlated colour temperature has not been revised again).

    Sun

    spectra of D65, Sun, and 5780 K blackbody The Sun has an effective surface temperature of 5780 K. However, the Sun's spectrum is not a precise blackbody. The graph at right shows the spectrum of the Sun as seen from above the Earth's atmosphere, together with the spectrum of a blackbody at 5780 K with the same total flux as the Sun, and the spectrum of CIE D65 `daylight' normalized to the solar flux at 560 nm. The Sun's spectrum was taken from R. L. Kurucz, I. Furenlid, J. Brault & L. Testerman (1984) Solar Flux Atlas from 296 to 1300 nm. The spectrum in the Solar Flux Atlas has a resolution of l/Dl  800,000. The spectrum plotted at right is heavily binned, into 5 nm bins. A table of the spectral energy distribution of CIE D65 is available at the UCSD Color and Vision database.

     

      x y
    D65 0.3127 0.3290
    Sun 0.3233 0.3326
    5780 K 0.3264 0.3357
    The table at left gives the chromaticities of the Sun and of a blackbody at 5780 K, along with the chromaticity of D65. The chromaticities were computed in the usual way by integrating the monochromatic tristimuli X, Y, Z from the CIE 2 tables over the corresponding spectrum. Each entry is correctly coloured relative to the D65 white point.

    The colour of the background of this page and accompanying pages on this site is the colour of the Sun relative to D65 white. As shown in the table, the Sun's colour is in fact rather similar to that of a 5780 K blackbody. It looks peach pinkish, not yellow, doesn't it? Strange. But I think it's a pretty colour.

    It has to be emphasized that white is a relative thing, at least to a certain extent. It is relative to the D65 white that the Sun is peachy pink. Item 16 of the Color FAQ states that for most people D65 has a little hint of blue. So maybe the Sun is really white?

      

      

    4-  The "moon trails its light" Miracle:

    Dr. Zaghlool Al-Najjar said in his book, "من آيات الإعجاز العلمي, السماء, في القرآن الكريم", Page 431, ISBN: 9953-429-81-2, said:

    والقمر اذا تلاها أي و بالقمر إذا تبعها في إنارة الأرض بعد غروب الشمس

    And the moon when it TALAHA (تلاها) means the moon follows the sun in lighting the earth after sun set.

      
    Furthermore, according to the 10-book Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1], Book 8, Pages 96-98:

    The word (تلاها):

    1-  It comes after it in order or sequence; sequential.

    2-  It is reliant and dependent upon it.

      
    Talaha (تلاها) is derived from Tala (تلا).

      
    1-  Tala (تلا):  To come after it in order or sequence; sequential:

  • أتلاه الله أطفالاً أي أتبعه أولاداً  Atlaahu (أتلاه) Allah children means Allah Almighty gave him children to continue after him.
      
  • تلّى فلان صلاته المكتوبة بالتطوُّع أي أتبعها   Talla (تلّى) the person his mandatory Prayer voluntarily means that he Prayed voluntary Prayers after it.
       
  • تتاليا أي متتابع   tataaliya (تتاليا) means sequential.     
  •   
    2-  Tala
    (تلا):  To become reliant and dependent upon it:

  • أتليته سهما: أعطيته إياه ليستجير به  Atlaytuhu the arrow means I gave it to him to protect himself with it.
        
  • يتلوها ولدها أي يتبعها   When her little one or child yatlooha (يتلوها) it means that he is following her every move.
  •   

    (a)-  The moon is constantly following the sun according to Scientists:

    Scientists today have proven without the shadow of the doubt that the moon is indeed trying to follow the sun, and is constantly drifting away from earth, and will eventually collide with or be swallowed by the sun.

    The Glorious Quran also supports such claim very well and predicts that the sun will eventually swallow the moon:

    Noble Verse(s) 75:9
    Dr. Munir Munshey:

    [075:009]  And the sun and the moon are made to run into each other.

    Arabic (from right to left):

    75:9 وجمع الشمس والقمر

    Important Note:  The moon doesn't necessarily have to unite with the sun immediately when the Hour comes.  The event is definitely going to happen because Allah Almighty Said so, but the timing of this event might happen later, perhaps after all life on earth ends completely.  It could also happen during or before life ends on earth as well.  The point is that the timing of the event is only known by Allah Almighty Alone, all Praise and Glory are due to Him Alone.

    The Moon is constantly following the sun:

    Also taken from the article: Is it possible for the sun to rise from the West and for the moon to be swallowed by the sun relatively quickly?

      

    Please pay attention to Articles #1, #2 and #3 below:

    2-  The Scientific Proofs:

    The following scientific articles prove that yes, all of the events above could happen in a very short period of time, and unexpectedly:

      

    Article #1:

    The earth tilted because of an asteroid's collision.  This could happen in the future, and major earth-tilts would also occur if the moon were to deviate away, causing the sun to rise from the West:


    (Click to play film-clip)

      

    Article #2:

    The earth's gravity is what is what locks the moon's orbit.  If the gravity lessens, then the moon will rapidly orbit off from earth and eventually be swallowed by the sun:


    (Click to play film-clip)

      

    Article #3:

    As the moon moves away from earth, the seas will rise:


    (Click to play film-clip)

      

    Article #4:

    Iron increased the earth's gravity and mass, and it currently makes much of the earth's core and gravity:

    Please visit: The iron was sent down to earth from space.

      

    Article #5:

    Again, The earth will lose much of its mass and gravity.

      

    Article #6:

    The Cosmic Crunch will occur by rolling up the Universe like the rolling up of scrolls.

      

      
    The Point from all of this:

    The point from all of these Scientific references is not to try to predict or calculate how things will precisely happen when Allah Almighty Wills for Hour to Come, but rather to prove scientifically, through our limited knowledge and science, that nothing is impossible for Allah Almighty, and that yes, it is quite possible:

    1-  For the sun to rise from the West.

    2-  For the earth to lose much of its gravity.

    3-  For the moon to deviate and to be swallowed by the sun.

    These are Islamic predictions and scientific theories that are now strongly supported by the Scientific discoveries that I presented above, and more.

      

    Again, please visit: Is it possible for the sun to rise from the West and for the moon to be swallowed by the sun relatively quickly?  For more details.

      

      

    So what do we see?

    It is clear that Allah Almighty's Choice of the word TALAHA (تلاها) was not by chance.  The word clearly meant that the moon not only sequentially came after the sun, but it is also dependent on the sun!  This is 100% true, since the moon orbits the sun while it is also orbiting the earth, and it also reflects the sun's lights at night.  Without the sun, our moon would neither be able to orbit our earth, nor shine its reflected light upon it.

    There are other words that Allah Almighty could've used to describe the moon's orbit trailing the sun's.  But the word (تلاها) is indeed a Miraculous choice, because it encompassed the moon's relationship with the sun.  It proved that the moon is not independent from the sun.  Like our planet, it is dependent upon it.

    Also, as thoroughly demonstrated about the moon's Miracle in the Holy Quran in great details:

    1-  The moon's orbit (S-shaped) is different from the sun's, in the Noble Quran.

    2-  The moon is reflecting the sun's light according to both the Noble Quran and Science.  This makes the moon's function for lighting the night is 100% dependent on the sun.  The moon is a revealer of the sun's rays at night, and since Noble Verses 91:1-5 are speaking about the sun rays and the daylight, then it is clear that Noble Verse 91:2 talked about the moon's dependence and reflection of the sun's light, and also its task of lighting the earth following the sun's set.

      

    The moon reflects the sun's rays:

    The fact that the moon does reflect the sun's rays, which is mentioned in the Holy Quran, makes the sun's orbit be first or be the primary one, and the moon's a secondary one.

      

    The Bottom Line:

    To me, the bottom line is this:  From whatever scientific angle we look at Noble Verse 91:2, we do find it in perfect match with Science.  This indeed makes the Choice of the Word TALAHA (تلاها) be a Divinely chosen one and not one that came by chance. 

      

      

    5-  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)"

    In regards to the sun and its light, Allah Almighty precisely mentioned that the sun doesn't not reveal the day.  He clearly Said that it is the day that reveals the sun, which had been scientifically proven not too long ago.  Again, Allah Almighty Said:

    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that reveals its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-5)"

    Allah Almighty clearly and indisputably first mentioned the sun's brilliant light, and then said that it is the day that reveals this brilliant light, which means that the yellowish-white light that we see from the sun is only a processed light and isn't the same as the radiant light.  The sun's original light in Noble Verse 91:1 is different from the sun's processed light in Noble Verse 91:3.  Allah Almighty mentioned it, and science today has confirmed it.

    And again, it is important to know that even during the day, when astronauts pass through our Ozone layer into space, they literally move from the light of our world into the complete black-darkness of space.  This is a well-known fact.  Therefore, Allah Almighty was perfectly accurate when He, the Almighty, called our atmosphere a "day" and "night", as clearly demonstrated in the links of this article's first section above, because the light that we see inside our Ozone layer is completely different from outer space, and it visually doesn't even exist outside our Ozone layer as far as our naked eyes are concerned.  That is why Allah Almighty, in the Noble Quran, distinguished between our earth's "day" and the outside space' darkness.  That is why Allah Almighty Said in the Noble Quran that "He Created the day and the night and the sun and the moon", in many Noble Verses, and talked about "the day reveals the sun's radiant light to us"In deed, the earth's "day" is unique to it and was created specifically for the earth, - precisely as Allah Almighty demonstrated in the Noble Quran!

    And again, as we clearly and indisputably saw above, Allah Almighty made it crystal clear about the outer space being completely dark (they would think they were blinded and bewitched as stated in Noble Verses 15:14-16) and has low air pressure and no oxygen to breath.

    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 and features and features, transforms the sun's very dark radiant lights into shinning and very bright lights, on earth.

    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 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".
