Does the sun move according to quran? What did the prophet say about the sun?
The distance between the Sun and Earth is 150 million kilometers. This distance can only be covered in eight minutes even with the speed of light. Let us think about other galaxies, stars and planets!
The age of the sun is estimated to be about 5 billion years. He takes his heat from the nuclear stove in his center and continues to burn.
To apprehend the magnificence of the sun. It continues to burn by the nuclear power existing in its core.
Let us examine the following numbers in order to imagine the size of the Sun: 1 million 300 thousand planets as big as earth can fit in the sun.
The temperature on the outer surface of the sun is 6,000 Celsius degrees and the temperature in its core is 20 million Celsius degrees.
So, the center of earth is an ocean of fire and the sun in our sky is another giant ocean of fire… Allah Almighty grants us a calm and safe life between these two fires.
The fact that the universe is continuously expanding was discovered by man in the last century. Whereas, it was mentioned in the Qur’an fourteen centuries ago:
“But they insolently defied the Command of their Lord: So the stunning noise (of an earthquake) seized them, even while they were looking on.” (al-Dhariyât, 51: 47)
When man disciplines his soul elegantly between the fires of self and the Satan and progresses regarding the knowledge of Allah, he saves himself from their harm.
We are blessed by the vegetables, fruits and plants that grow thanks to the photosynthesis taking place by means of the sun.
564 million tons of hydrogen is transformed in the sun into 560 million tons of helium in every second. The difference of 4 million tons of gas is emitted in the form of energy and radiation.
If we calculate based on the mass disappearing;
The sun loses 4 million tons per second and 240 million tons per minute. However, the material loss of the sun by today is only 1 out of 5 thousandth of its mass.
The light of the sun does not lighten the entire solar system. Its light reaches at our atmosphere in the dark as if it goes through an isolated special cable without any leakage. When it reaches at the atmosphere, the package of light opens as if the switch of a lamp is turned on, and starts to spread its light. Consequently, it enables us to see a colorful world.
When the rays coming from the sun touches the ground, they give the warmth necessary for all living beings. The harmony of all living beings depends on this balance.
The rays coming from the sun touch the leaves and help them grow.
The sun travels at an incredible speed of 720 thousand kilometers per hour. To where? It is unknown! The sun is only one of the estimated 200 billion stars existing in the Milky Way galaxy. Just like the sun, all these stars are the manifestations of the Divine Might. They are miracles of omnipotence and creation.
They touch the sea and make enough amount of water evaporate, which is necessary for hydrologic cycle…
The sun travels at an incredible speed of 720 thousand kilometers per hour. To where? It is unknown!
The sun is only one of the estimated 200 billion stars existing in the Milky Way galaxy. Just like the sun, all these stars are the manifestations of the Divine Might. They are miracles of omnipotence and creation. Allah Almighty gives the following information in the Qur’an, which is yet to be discovered:
“Furthermore I call to witness the setting of the Stars, and that is indeed a mighty adjuration if ye but knew.” (Al-Wâqi’a, 56: 75-76)
We can understand the enormous art of Allah Almighty only within simple and limited borders of our cognition.
We know that fish live in the sea. The divine power set invisible curtains in the sea. The fish that live closer to the surface of the sea do not go down towards its bottom. In like manner, the fish that live in the middle levels do not descend to lower levels. Those who live at the bottom do not go up. Each one of them continues to live in their invisibly separated floors in the water.
At the bottom of the sea where the sunlight does not reach, there are fish and other creatures living. Allah bestowed upon them different kind of eyes and means of senses. The bats and some other creatures have such systems that man could invent similar systems and start to employ in radars only recently.
An ox came to Baghdad and wandered all around the city through which Tigris river runs and which is full of magnificent natural beauties, palaces and mansions. However, he could not see all these beauties, but rather saw only the rinds of melon and watermelon in the dumps, just like the heedless man who is unaware of the manifestations of the divine magnificence.
The gaze of snakes has a special influence on the growth of its babies. In like manner, it is discovered that the gazes of the turtles have an effect on the breaking of their eggs.
Every creature has a different way of life, reproduction system, method of growth and length of life time.
For example, the pregnancy and breastfeeding method of the kangaroo is quite unique. The joeys born after a short pregnancy of 30-40 days stay in their mother’s pouch and continue to be breastfed for another nine months. This milk is secreted according to the needs of the joeys. Initially, it is clear like water, but in the following months it gets darker and fattier. While a baby is growing up, the mother kangaroo may bring another baby to the world. The mother kangaroo’s body produces different types of milk according to the needs of first and the second joey. If then a third joey is born, three different types of milk comes from three separate breasts.
What a magnificent scene! What a marvelous exhibition of might!
All of them are the manifestations of omnipotence of Allah…
There are various kinds of eyes… Some snakes have eyes which are imitated in the production of thermal cameras. They see their prey in dark by means of their body temperature.
Osman (r.a.) says:
A servant (who is heedless and alienated of divine truths) should fear to be resurrected by Allah as blind in the hereafter! A meaningful word is enough for those who comprehend wisdom. (But the foolish and ignorant ones) those who spiritually deaf cannot hear the truth…”
Many insect species have eyes consisting of hundreds of tiny eyes like a honeycomb.
Everything admits His art:
“… (such is) the artistry of Allah, who disposes of all things in perfect order…” (al-Naml, 27: 88)
As Ziya Pasha says:
“I glorify Allah Almighty whose artistry astonishes the minds and whose might makes the most prominent scholars powerless and helpless…”
With its geographical shapes such as valleys, plains, mountains etc., the earth was created proper for human life. The green gardens, vineyards, fields, and meadows were set on top of the layer of fire. The trees are blessings; the shadows are blessings… What great blessings the herbs and plants that are the foods for our livestock are! There is a perfect order and undeviating harmony.
Each of these is separate blessings. These are the marvelous scenes that lead people to contemplate and tremble before the omnipotence of Allah and give their thanks to Him.
