Researchers have found that Earth’s atmosphere consists of layers placed on top of each other and that these layers varies according to their density.Therefore, researchers have been seven different layers of the Earth’s atmosphere. In addition, the number “7” many indications in the Quran and the Prophet (peace be upon him).
Although some scientists agree that these teams are exactly the same as the seven heavens Quran has mentioned. Allah (SWT) says in the Qur’an: ” We adorned the lower heaven with flares ….. “ This is the arrangement of the Mighty the Wise. (Qur’an 41:12) .
Flares refer to the stars, as we know, is located outside Earth’s atmosphere, and even outside our solar system. In addition, the nearest star 4.3 light years distant from us.
When you visualize the galaxies in the universe, we find that they consist of billions of stars that decorate the sky. we can say that the stars and galaxies we see is the nearest heaven because Allah says: “We have adorned the lower heaven with lights.” (Qur’an 67:5) Which means that these stars decorate the first heaven, which is closest to us, and Allah (SWT) is the only one who knows about the rest of the sky.
In conclusion, the Earth’s atmospheric layers, our solar system and all the galaxies located in the first heaven. But the second heaven, third, fourth ….even the seventh has not yet been seen. Maybe scientists discover more secrets of the rest of the sky in the future, and Allah (SWT) knows best.
