27 Amazing Verses From The Quran about the Universe


The Quran has the most inspiring and beautiful verses which talk about patience, hope, righteous way to live life, peace, and empowerment. As humans living on this Earth we barely have any idea about what lies in the rest of the world, or more so how much of the rest of the world is there?
We are one planet of many, one of many solar systems, one of many milky ways, one of many galaxies, all held in one world. We can barely start to imagine the capacity of all this world holds until we become overwhelmed by its mere complexity, it truly is extraordinary, there is so much our minds cannot gather, such is the beauty of this world.
There is so much focus on this world of ours, the beloved earth, full of gracious greens and blossoming blues but what about the world beyond?
What about what stretches beyond the beaming blue sky and serenading stars?
There is an entire universe beyond us. Billions of galaxies like ours. Stars and Planets. Everything and so much more, more than our human minds could ever imagine.
We have compiled 27 verses from the holy Quran related to the Universe to help us reflect on the magnificence of our Creator ALLAH!

The seven heavens extol His limitless glory, and the earth, and all that they contain; and there is not a single thing but extols His limitless glory and praise: but you [O men] fail to grasp the manner of their glorifying Him! Verily, He is forbearing, much-forgiving

الَّذِي أَحْسَنَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقَهُ وَبَدَأَ خَلْقَ الْإِنسَانِ مِن طِين
