THE BEAUTY OF THE SKY..

Are the seven layers of the Earth’s atmosphere the same as the seven skies the noble Quran talked about? Through this article, we will correct this misunderstanding ….
The Earth has all the attributes that are needed for life. One of them is the atmosphere, which serves as a shield protecting living things. Today, it is an established fact that the atmosphere is made up of different layers lying on top of one another. Just as it is described in the Qur'an, the atmosphere is made up of exactly seven layers. This is certainly one of the miracles of the Qur'an.
Scientists have found that the Earth’s atmosphere consists of layers positioned on top of each other, and that these layers differ according to their density. Hence, scientists have set seven different layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. Moreover, the number “7” has many indications in the Quran and in the prophet’s sayings (peace be upon him).
"It is He Who created everything on the earth for you and then directed His attention up to heaven and arranged it into SEVEN regular heavens. He has knowledge of all things." (The Qur'an, 2:29)
"Then He turned to heaven when it was smoke. In two days He determined them as SEVEN heavens and revealed, in every heaven, its own mandate." (The Qur'an, 41:12)
Allah menciptakan tujuh langit dan seperti itu juga bumi; berlaku hukum-hukum Allah didalamnya agar kamu ketahui bahwa Allah sangat berkuasa terhadap segala sesuatu; dan Allah sungguh meliputi segalanya dgn pengetahuan-Nya.
Qs. 65 ath-Thalaq : 12
we see that the atmosphere consists of exactly seven layers, just as stated in the verse.
While Scientists may have different names for some of the atmospheric layers of earth, but
they agree on their functionality and number (SEVEN)
Though, some scientists agree that these layers are exactly the same as the seven skies the Quran has mentioned about. Allah (SWT) said:
“And we adorned the nearest (lowest) heaven with lamps to be as an adornment as well as to guard. Such is the Decree of Him, the All Mighty, the All- Knower” [QS Fussilat: 12].
Lamps refer to the stars which, as we know, are located external to the earth’s atmosphere and even external to our solar system. In addition, the closest star to us is 4.3 light years distant from us.
When visualizing the galaxies in the universe, we find that they consist of billions of stars which are to decorate the skies. We can say that the stars and the galaxies we see are in the nearest sky because Allah Almighty says:
“we adorned the nearest (lowest) heaven with lamps to be as an adornment” (Sûrat Al-Mulk -verse5 ).
Meaning that these stars decorate the first sky that is closest to us and that Allah Almighty is the only One who knows regarding the rest of the skies.

AND ALSO.. THE PROOF THAT THE SKY IS EXPANDING...
Surat Adh-Dhāriyāt (The Winnowing Winds) - سورة الذاريات
And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] EXPANDER.
Tafseer Muhsin Khan:
With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to EXTEND the vastness of space thereof.
And the earth We have spread out, and excellent is the preparer.
Dan langit itu Kami bangun dengan kekuasaan (Kami) dan sesungguhnya Kami benar-benar meluaskannya. (QS. 51:47)
Dan bumi itu Kami hamparkan; maka sebaik-baik yang menghamparkan (adalah Kami). (QS. 51:48)[/SIZE][/FONT]
In 1929, Edwin Hubble, an astronomer at Caltech, made a critical discovery that soon led to scientific answers for these questions: he discovered that the universe is expanding.
Stephen Hawking (a British theoretical physicist) states in his book:
Stephen Hawking - The Theory Of Everything:
"But in 1929, Edwin Hubble made the landmark observation that wherever you look, distant stars are moving rapidly away from us. In other words, the universe is expanding."
In addition, the same thing above is written in Stephen Hawking's book: "A Brief History of Time." Moreover, Stephen Hawking says in another book that:
Stephen Hawking - A Briefer History Of Time, Pg 57:
"The discovery that the universe is expanding was one of the great intellectual revolutions of the twentieth century."
SO, WILL YOU DENY THE CREATION OF ALLAH SWT, THE AL MIGHTY, WHO CREATED US AND ALL THINGS IN THIS UNIVERSE?
AND ALSO ABOUT THE BIG BANG THEORY...........
Surat Fuşşilat (Explained in Detail) - سورة فصلت
VERSE 11: Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, "Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion." They said, "We have come willingly."
Kemudian Dia menuju kepada penciptaan langit dan langit itu masih merupakan asap, lalu Dia berkata kepadanya dan kepada bumi: “Datanglah kamu keduanya menurut perintah-Ku dengan suka hati atau terpaksa”. keduanya menjawab: “Kami datang dengan suka hati”. (Q.S. Fushilat : 11)
VERSE 12 : And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.
(QS 41:12) Maka Dia menjadikannya tujuh langit dalam dua masa. Dia mewahyukan pada tiap-tiap langit urusannya. Dan Kami hiasi langit yang dekat dengan bintang-bintang yang cemerlang dan Kami memeliharanya dengan sebaik-baiknya. Demikianlah ketentuan Yang Maha Perkasa lagi Maha Mengetahui.
Surat Qāf (The Letter "Qaf") - سورة ق
And We did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days, and there touched Us no weariness.
Surat Al-'A`rāf (The Heights) - سورة الأعراف
VERSE 54: Indeed, your Lord is Allah , who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He covers the night with the day, [another night] chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah , Lord of the worlds.
“Sesungguhnya Tuhan kamu adalah Allah yang telah menciptakan langit dan bumi dalam enam masa, lalu Dia bersemayam di atas ‘Arasy. Dia menutupkan malam kepada siang yang mengikutinya dengan cepat, dan diciptakanNya pula matahari, bulan, dan bintang-bintang (masing-masing) tunduk kepada perintah-Nya. Ingatlah, menciptakan dan memerintah hanyalah hak Allah. Mahsuci Allah Tuhan semesta alam."
(QS: Al A’raaf: 54)
