In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Prostrating to Him

[51:47] We constructed the sky with our hands, and we will continue to expand it.

Another evidence of the divinity of the words of the Quran is the theory of expansion of the universe. This theory was discovered in the 20th century when they found out that the galaxies are moving away from us and the farther they are, the faster they are receding. The universe as a whole is, not only expanding, but also accelerating outward.

[39:63] To Him belongs all decisions in the heavens and the earth, and those who disbelieve in God's revelations are the real losers.

It is His decision, that the stars do not crash at each other and that each galaxy with its stars, rotate in an exact perfect orbit and it is His decision that some stars are born and others die. His decision, that galaxies move apart from each other in the ever expanding universe. As it is His decision to exile the ignorant humans to a tiny speck in His enormous universe.

[64:1] Glorifying God is everything in the heavens and everything on earth. To Him belongs all kingship, and to Him belongs all praise, and He is Omnipotent.

[59:24] He is the One God; the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer. To Him belong the most beautiful names. Glorifying Him is everything in the heavens and the earth. He is the Almighty, Most Wise.

Glorifying Him are, more than fifty billion trillion stars in the visible universe, the. giant galaxies, the clusters, the super clusters, in humility. Glorifying Him, are billions of bright supernovae, black holes, meteors, dark matter, hot stars, frozen planets and many unknown heavenly bodies that we will never, ever see or hear about. Every single atom, electron, proton and every single minute particle in them. Prostrating to Him are all the powers, the great energy, the blazing heat, the magnificent glow , the whispering dark, the electromagnetic waves, the light photons and gravitational forces holding all the stars, keeping them rotating and glorifying in submissive harmony out there. While the rebellious humans on their minute distant speck, are too arrogant to obey or appreciate their awesome Creator.

[17:44] Glorifying Him are the seven universes, the earth, and everyone in them. There is nothing that does not glorify Him, but you do not understand their glorification. He is Clement, Forgiver.

[22:18] Do you not realize that to God prostrates everyone in the heavens and the earth, and the sun, and the moon, and the stars, and the mountains, and the trees, and the animals, and many people? Many others among the people are committed to doom. Whomever God shames, none will honor him. Everything is in accordance with God's will.

Only few centuries ago, scientists discovered the motion of the stars and the galaxies that are moving away from earth and each other, in the accelerating expanding universe. They are yet to learn about the 7 universes that are created in layers as they continue to refuse to appreciate the enlightenment and the knowledge God blessed us with in Quran. They keep coming up with ignorant theories about a multiverse and flat universe with flat layers of bubbles on top of each other, while arrogantly ignoring what the students of The Final Testament already know.

[51:47] We constructed the sky with our hands, and we will continue to expand it.

Believers do not take the spatial expansion of the universe lightly, because they realize well what this means as expressed in the following verse:

[57:21] Therefore, you shall race towards forgiveness from your Lord, and a Paradise whose width encompasses the heaven and the earth. It awaits those who believed in God and His messengers. Such is God's grace that He bestows upon whomever He wills. God is Possessor of Infinite Grace.

And the higher the Heaven, the larger the size, a size that is far, far beyond our imagination!! According to recent science, the size of the complete universe is to the observable universe, as the size of the observable universe is to an atom. Calculations recently showed that the minimum diameter of the entire universe could be more than 170 billion light years, and continues to expand, never being able to calculate the maximum diameter. As believers, we realize that all their calculations are related to only our smallest inner universe, the smallest of seven.

[39:67] They can never fathom the greatness of God. The whole earth is within His fist on the Day of Resurrection. In fact, the universes are folded within His right hand. Be He glorified; He is much too high above needing any partners.

[65:12] God created seven universes and the same number of earths. The commands flow among them. This is to let you know that God is Omnipotent, and that God is fully aware of all things.

Our knowledge about the size of the universe might help us appreciate the greatness of God. Now we know that His dominion encompasses enormous universes with countless galaxies, infinite orbits and great distances crossed in fraction of seconds.

[2:131] ...., "I submit to the Lord of the universe."

Peaceful Friday, salaam, and God bless.
