The Amazing Universe

The Moving Sun
Nicholas Copernicus in 1512 said the sun was motionless in the centre of the solar system with all planets revolving around it. This became standard belief. Modern science now says the sun is not still, but in motion. The sun, travelling at 241km/second takes 200 million years to complete one revolution around the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy and 25 days to make a complete rotation on its own axis.
The Qur'aan says: "It is He who created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon; they float, each in an orbit" (21:33)

Expanding Universe
In 1925, E Hubble provided evidence for the expansion of the universe. S Hawking states: ‘The universe is not static ... it is expanding’.
The Qur'aan says: "With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof (another translation reads: and verily We are expanding it)," (51:47)

Protective Atmosphere
Earth is constantly bombarded by meteoroids that disintegrate in the atmosphere, and by lethal rays emitted by the sun. This UV radiation is absorbed by the Ozone layer forming the outer fringe of our atmosphere. Thus our atmosphere and Ozone layer is a protective covering for us.
The Qur'aan says: "And We have made the heaven a roof, safe and well guarded..." (21:32)
Science only discovered these facts recently Qur’aan mentioned them 14 centuries ago
