When the Quran was written: The word for Universe did not really exist in Arabic just like the word Universe did not exist in English before physicists. The Word universe meant something else like "all that exists". So the Quran may not say the 'Alkoon' because at the time it was written, that word did not denote "the universe". The word for 'sky' is the ...

The Boltzmann brain is a ...self-aware entity that arises due to random fluctuations out of a state of chaos (Wikipedia), which implies that, if a Boltzmann brain exists, it's most probably among the most rudimentary of brains, as creating more sophisticated brains is far less probable. This is not compatible with our understanding of Allah, e.g. being ...

Traditionally the scholars has interpreted the word "lamosi'on" (لَمُوسِعُونَ) to mean; "indeed We are able too". Most other translations today seems to (subjectively) ignore that translation and translate it to expansion: وَالسَّمَاءَ بَنَيْنَاهَا بِأَيْدٍ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We ...

Your key question is: Are there several universes? Your secondary questions (indicated through your clarification) are: Where is Allaah? What are the heavens that Allaah has mentioned in the Qur'aan? Is it safe to say we can never fully understand Allaah? What are the capabilities of Allaah? Is knowledge only what is in the Qur'aan? Are there ...

What the Quran states about Purpose: In Quran, surah Saad, verse 27 reads: وَمَا خَلَقْنَا السَّمَاءَ وَالْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا بَاطِلًا ۚ ذَ‌ٰلِكَ ظَنُّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ۚ فَوَيْلٌ لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنَ النَّارِ [Al-Qur’an 38:27, translator: Arberry] We have not created the heavens and earth, and what between them is, for vanity; ...

Although in Sahih International, the word used for both skies and heavens are the same (heavens), the original words are different (sema for sky and cennet for heaven). Also, the verses about them can be easily separated by concept. Skies In Quran, there are numerous verses (around 140) about "the skies and the earth". In most of them (probably all of them)...

An example of the interpretation Let's start with a quote from qtafsir (a somehow summarized version of tafsir ibn Kathir): Allah reminds us of the creating of the higher and lower worlds, (We constructed the heaven. وَالسَّمَآءَ بَنَيْنَـهَا) meaning, "We made it as a high roof, protected from falling," (with Hands بِأَيْدٍ), meaning, with ...

Allah refers himself as the lord of the worlds in the Quran which indicates that there might be other universes out there. He said in the Quran: He is the Living (One): There is no god but He: Call upon Him, giving Him sincere devotion. Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds! -- (40:65) We don't know much about that because such details is not ...

My understanding as a lay-person, is that the Quran can be understood in different ways, when it comes to these scientific sounding verses. 1400 years ago, no one would have understood it the way we do today. They were not "wrong" as long as they were not misusing the Arabic words. Similarly, we may understand it differently, since our ...

Indirectly, yes; given that the universe was created by Allah, a number of things follow from this by reflection. The current scientific consensus is that the universe is very, very large, and still expanding; but it is still finite in size; it is not infinite. This is consistent with the universe beginning in a 'Big Bang' several billion years ago; ...

Your (and mine, and everyone's) main concern, rather the ONLY concern, should be how to get in Jannah. What will we have there, IF we get there is of secondary importance. In Jannah, every person will be rewarded on 3 levels: One's all instincts/desires etc. will already be fulfilled. We cannot fully imagine this completely. Whatever one wants, will be ...
