Quran and the Science The moon and the sun

Astronomers found that the moon movement is 18 kilometers per a second, the Earth movement is 15 kilometers per a second, whereas the sun movement is 12 kilometers per a second. The sun, the earth & the moon all run & the distance between them is regularized. Quran explained this fact before fourteen centuries. It says “And the sun Runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him) the exalted in Might, the All Knowing.

And the moon we have measured for her Mansions (to traverse) Till she returns like the old (and withered) lower part of a date – stalk. It is not permitted to the sun to catch up the moon, nor can the night outstrip the Fay: Each (just) swims along in (its own orbit) (According to Law) [36:38-40]. What does “Ali runs And Mohammed moves and Ali cannot reach Mohammed runs but Ali does not reach Mohammed. Here Allah the Excelled in might says “And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him” Then He says “ It is not permitted to the sun to catch-up the moon” This means that the moon is meant to be before the sun where as the sun runs and can not catch up it. Because the speed of the moon is 18 kilometers & that of the earth is 15 kilometers while that of the sun is 12 kilometers. Whatsoever the sun runs it will not catch up the moon. But what makes the moon also to retain its mansions while it can leave them? The astronomers found that the moon runs in a zigzag swing and not in a straightforward line. The moon runs in this manner to retain its mansions and locations. In this manner Allah organized and systemized the orbiting &more movements of all of them so that they retain their orbiting traces & do not depart them. Therefore, we have the regular succession of Night & Daytime, seasons etc…. Don’t you think it is an excellent determination? Is it possible that it has come only by chance? No, it has not come by chance because chance cannot create such excellent & systematic norms of the universe. Allah has created all this & creates this systemic cosmic norms.
