An Example of The Greatness of Allah


We learn from Verse 39:67 that the greatness of Allah is far beyond human comprehension - the verse states that all the universes are "folded within God's hand."


We know that our universe is the smallest and innermost of all universes. Meanwhile, our scientific advances have shown us that our galaxy, the Milky Way, is 100,000 light years across, and that our universe contains a billion such galaxies and a billion trillion stars, plus countless decillions of heavenly bodies. Our universe is estimated to span distances in excess of 20,000,000,000 light years.


Count the Stars!

If we take only a quintillion [1,000,000,000,000,000,000] of the stars (while it may sound a great quantity, but in reality there are countless more stars than just this) and simply only count them [from zero to quintillion] one count per second, day and night, this will take 32 billion years (more than the age of the universe). That is how long it will take to just "count" them; but Allah "created" them.

What we cannot even "count" Allah "created" them. SUCH is the greatness of Allah!!
