For example in surah 51:47 it says “heaven” instead of like “universe” or something which is probably because the word universe didn’t exist in the Arabic language back then but are there any more hadiths or Quranic verses that show that the word “heaven” was used in place of the word “universe”.

    The word sama' in Arabic refers to anything that we need to look up to the sky's to see or expect to see it. So it means universe, sky and heaven as the qur'an calls them skys. And the meaning can be concluded from the context of the verse or report. – Medi1Saif Sep 16 '19 at 6:26
