In Response To: Why Allah creating the stars ? (Shravan India)

Read "The Mysterious Universe" by Sir James Jeans (1877-1946), an English physicist, astronomer and mathematician.


41:12 And He is the One Who ordained that they become seven heavens in Two Eras and assigned to each heaven its function. And We decorated the sky of the world with shining lamps, and made them secure (that they do not clash in their orbits 41:9). That is the Design of the Almighty, the Knower.

67:5 And We have beautified the sky of the world with shining lamps. And made them objects of futile guesses for the Satans. And for them We have prepared the doom of blazing flames. [15:17, 37:6-9, 72:8. Astrologers, fortune-tellers, clairvoyants, mystics, and Sufis who, for selfish gains, claim knowledge of the Unseen and the future, are either themselves deceived or deceive others. Rajm also denotes speaking out of conjecture like throwing stones randomly, or shooting in the dark]

Surah 85. Al-Burooj – The Great Constellations
[Author’s Note] This is the 85th Surah of the Qur’an. It has 22 verses. The Supreme Control of God over the cosmic systems and all the Universe in itself requires that He must send His guidance to mankind as well. All things in the Universe follow the Divine Laws, therefore, it is only logical that man, too, must be shown his way. And that is what the Divine Revelation is all about. "He who digs a pit for others falls into it himself."

With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness

85:1 The sky full of constellations stands witness.
85:2 And the promised Day (of Resurrection).
85:3 He Who watches and those who are being watched.
85:4 Woe to those who dig ditches for others.
85:5 Igniting the fire of rage.
85:6 They contemplate and wait in anticipation.
85:7 And they are well aware of what they are doing to the believers.
85:8 Whom they hate for no other reason than that they believe in God, the Almighty, the Owner of praise. (5:59, 22:40)
85:9 And to Whom belongs the Kingdom of the heavens and earth. But God is Watcher over all things.
85:10 Those who persecute the believing men and the believing women, and then do not repent by taking corrective action, theirs is the doom of (the ditch) Hell and theirs is the doom of burning.
85:11 Those who choose to be graced with belief and do works that help people, theirs are the Gardens underneath which rivers flow. That is the great eminence.
85:12 Yet, strong is the grip of your Lord!
85:13 He is the One Who originates (life) and He does restore.
85:14 And He is the Forgiving, the Loving.
85:15 Lord of the Supreme Throne.
85:16 Carrying out His Plan according to His Laws. [Fe’l = Doing = Carrying out. Ma Yureed = As He plans = As He wills = In accordance with His Laws). In the World of Command He makes Laws as He wills. Then He implements these Laws in the World of Creation, the Universe (7:54). And then He neither changes them, nor makes any exceptions. [17:77, 33:38, 33:62, 35:43, 40:85, 48:23. His Rule is the Rule of Law and not of haphazard tantrums]
85:17 Has the story reached you of the great troops?
85:18 Of Pharaoh and Thamud.
85:19 And yet the rejecters knowingly live in denial.
85:20 But God surrounds them without them perceiving it. [Minwwaraihim = From behind them = Without them conceiving it = From beyond their comprehension]
85:21 Nay, but this is Sublime Qur’an.
85:22 (Inscribed) upon Tablet Imperishable. [God Himself guards it against corruption. It is preserved in minds and hearts in addition to parchment and paper, and its laws are indelibly inscribed in the Book of Nature 15:9, 56:78. Interestingly, 85:22 is unique in using Lauh-im-Mahfooz, the Imperishable Tablet, for the Qur’an. Elsewhere it relates to the Divine Database about the Universe]
