few facts to understand:
Its scientifically known that the speed of light is 300,000 km/second
this means that if you have a plan flying by the speed of light then you can cross 20 times the distance between Sydney and Glasgow in less than 1 second only
the light minute is the Distance
that the light cross in one minute.
Could you imagine that the sun is away from us by Distance : 190,000,000 km
it would take you about 120 years to reach the sun by car...but the light takes only 8 minutes to reach the earth starting from the sun.
this means that if you are able to fly with the light speed then it would take you 8 minutes to cross the distance of 190 million km from earth to sun.
see the speed of light makes the 120 years to be only 8 minutes...
Do you imagine how fast is light?
Do you imagine how great are the distance between earth and sun
the earth and the sun are in a system called : solar system.
this solar system is a very small system relatively to the other suns ( stars ) in our galaxy .
our galaxy contains millions of suns many of them are much bigger and greater than our sun.
Take a deep breath
the width of our galaxy is......
100,000 light years
Do you imagine?
do you know what does this means?
it means that if you could be able to fly with the light speed then it will takes you 100 thousand years to across our Galaxy..
Go wash your face before reading the follwoing fact
Last discoveries proved that the width of the seen universe is between
156 - 180 billion light years.
this is under what we muslims believe its called the 1st heaven : there are 7 heavens each one is like a small ring in a very very wide desert as mentioned in the narrations.
and Allah is above all of these heavens seeing us and hearing us , listening to our supplication ..
