Al-Quran and Astronomy

Miracle of Islam
When referring to the sun and moon in the Holy Quran, affirmed that each move in the orbit or a path.

"And He created night and day, sun and moon. Each of them was outstanding in the line path." (Qur'an Sura 21:33) and (Qur'an Sura 21:33). Also mentioned in that paragraph that the sun is not silent, but moving in a certain path: "And sun walks in the the line path (orbit). Such provisions of the Mighty, the Knowing." (Qur'an Sura 36:38) and (Qur'an Sura 36:38).

The facts presented in the Qur'an have been found through astronomical observation in the era of us. According to astronomical calculations of experts, the sun moves with incredible speed that reaches 720 thousand kilometers per hour towards the star Vega in a path called the Solar Apex. This means that the sun moves far more than 17,280,000 kilometers a day. Together with the sun, all the planet and satellite in the solar system gravity also run through this distance. Next, all the stars in the universe is in a similar planned motion.

Miracle of IslamAs other comets in the natural highway, comet Halley, as seen in the side picture, is also moving to follow the orbit or path set. Comet has a special path and move the path of this harmony with the things of heaven another.

The entire universe is filled by the track and path such as this, stated in the Qur'an as follows: "By the sky that have roads." (Al Qur'an, 51:7) (Qur'an, 51:7). There are about 200 billion galaxies in the universe that each consists of nearly 200 stars. Most of the stars have a planet, and most of the planets have moon (satellite). All things are moving in the sky line with a circulation that is very carefully calculated.

During millions of years, each as if "swim" along the lines path in harmony and perfect regularity, together with the other. In addition, a number of comets also move together along the path set for him. Miracle of IslamAll objects in the sky including the planet, the satellites that accompany the planet, stars, and even the galaxy, has an orbit or path their own. All this orbit has been determined based on the great calculation of a very carefully. Who build and maintain order is a perfect God, the Creator of all natural whole.

Path in the universe is not only owned by the object in space. Galaxies is running at incredible speed in a line of the orbit and planned. During this movement, none of the celestial objects that orbit this cut, or collide with another. In fact, some have observed that the number of galaxies meet each other without any one part of the mutual-brush.

Can be ascertained that at the time the Qur'an was revealed, people do not have a telescope of the present or in advanced technology for the spatial distance of millions of kilometers, nor knowledge of modern physics and astronomy. Therefore, when it is not possible to say scientifically that space "filled with track and path" as stated in the paragraph (ayaah). However, this is openly stated to us in the Qur'an that was revealed at the time: because the Qur'an is the word of God.
