Assalamu Alaikum Brothers in Islam,

Quran Surah 25 - Ayat 46 :

Then We withdraw it (The Sun) to Ourselves , a gradual withdrawal?

What does this Ayat mean? Where is the sun being withdrawn to?

Does it mean that it is being withdrawn gradually towards the middle of the Sky?

What does Allah Swt mean when He is saying He withdraws the sun unto Himself?

  • 'It' refers to the shadow. – UmH Jan 13 at 17:40
  • There some verses in the Quran that are allegorical (i.e. do not have an established meaning) 3.7, if these case you to doubt you should make the duwa which is in the next verse: 3:8 – Asan Ramzan Jan 13 at 20:18
