Engineer of Qandala
Been awhile I have posted in here, because of vacation, I am currently reading Surah 28 Al-Qasas(The Narrative).
Not finished reading it yet

Notice how the sun/moon described as being in "orbit" which runs contrary to the Copernican sun worship model in which the sun was stationary and at the centre (later revised to be shooting through space)33. And He it is Who has created the night and the day, and the sun and the moon, each in an orbit floating.
Imagine ayats like these that 1400+ years ago would have to be taken on belief that we can now begin to confirm with our current science today, just shows how timeless the Quran is.
And it makes me interested in what later scientific discoveries may be able to explain further in the Quran that we currently have no explanation for.
That actually gives a new perspective to the 2Started during lunch beak today on Surah 32 As-Sajdah(The Prostration)
I always like ayats the inform us more on the nature and attributes of Allah (SWT), and I liked the following ayat because of this;
5. He arranges (every) affair from the heavens to the earth, then it (affair) will go up to Him, in one Day, the space whereof is a thousand years of your reckoning (i.e. reckoning of our present world's time).
That is, “The events of a thousand years of your history are a day’s work for Allah.” He entrusts His scheme of work to the “angels of destiny”, who submit their report of work before Him and receive orders for the scheme of the next day (whose length according to your calculation would be a thousand years).
Imagine to Allah, what we count as a millennium ie 1,000 years is only 1 day for Him.
In that case the Prophet Mohamed was around only about 1.5 days ago, and Jesus 2 days ago.
And Pharaoh of Egypt 5 days ago
I would definitely encourage you to read the Quran and understand its meaning. I would recommend looking into a tafsir book that gives not only translation of ayats but also Hadith quotes that give context to the ayats you are reading.I want to do this as I have never read the whole book but I was watching a lecture where the guy basically said not to rush the reading. What do you guys think? I am going through a Depression and need some answers about pretty much everything. Currently have the qur'an playing and have had all day tbh. It is very soothing mashaAllah.
Can you read it in arabic? because i can't it's depressing and the english translation just doesn't feel the same.So this spring, I have started a new routine of reading Quran during daily lunch break at work. I have finished it once already and this month I started over, this time with Tafsir/translation.
I am gonna post interesting, and intriguing ayats I come across during my daily reading here.:siilaanyosmile:
At the beginning this was a chore, but its become a favorite part of my day right now
Currently on Surah 5 Al-Ma'ida
