Two high-placed Pakistani nuclear engineers had proposed to solve Pakistan's energy problems by harnessing the power of genies. He relied on the Islamic belief that God created man from clay, and genies from fire; so the engineers proposed to capture the genies and extract their energy.

A retired physics department chairman in Quaid-e-Azam University in Islamabad has calculated the speed of heaven. He maintains heaven is receding from Earth at one centimeter per second less than the speed of light. His ingenious method relies upon a verse in the Islamic holy book, which says that worship on the night on which the book was revealed is worth a thousand nights of ordinary worship. He states that this amounts to a time-dilation factor of 1,000, which he puts into a formula of Einstein's theory of special relativity.
