For those who reflect...

“Are you more difficult to create, or is the heaven that He constructed? He raised its height, and He has equally ordered it” (An-Naazi’aat: 27-28).

“With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof.” (Ath-Thaariyaat: 47).

“Who has created the seven heavens one above another, you can see no fault in the Creation of the Most Beneficent. Then look again: "Can you see any rifts? * Then look again and yet again, your sight will return to you in a state of humiliation and worn out.” (Al-Mulk: 3-4)

“Have they not looked at the heaven above them, how We have made it and adorned it, and there are no rifts in it?” (Qaaf: 6)

“And on the earth are Signs for those who have Faith with certainty.” (Ath-Thaariyaat: 20)

“And in the earth are neighboring tracts, and gardens of vines, and fields sown with corn, and palm trees, growing out two or three from a single stem root, or otherwise (one stem root for every palm), watered with the same water, yet some of them We make more excellent than others to eat. Verily, in these things, there are Ayaat (evidence) for the people who understand.” (Ar-Ra’ad: 4)

“The seven heavens and the earth and all that is therein, glorify Him and there is not a thing but glorifies His praise. But you understand not their glorification. Truly, He is Ever Forbearing, Oft-Forgiving”. (Al-Israa’: 44)

“And no (moving) living creature is there on earth but its provision is due from Allaah. And He knows its dwelling place and its deposit (in the uterus, grave, etc.), all is in a clear Book.” (Hood: 6)

“Say (O Muhammad): Tell me! If Allah made night continuous for you till the Day of Resurrection, who is a god besides Allah who could bring you light? Will you not then hear? Say (O Muhammad) If Allah made day continuous for you till the Day of Resurrection, who is a god besides Allah who could bring you night wherein you rest? Will you not then see?” (Al-Qasas: 71-73)

“And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing. And the moon, We have measured for it mansions (to traverse) till it returns like the old dried curved date stalk. It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They all float, each in an orbit” (Yaa Seen: 38-40)

“Were they created by nothing, or were they themselves the creators? Or did they create the heavens and the earth? Nay, but they have no firm belief.” (At-Toor: 35-36)

“Verily, in the heavens and the earth are Signs for the believers. And in your creation, and what He scattered (through the earth) of moving (living) creatures are Signs for people who have Faith with certainty. And in the alternation of night and day, and the provision (rain) that Allah sends down from the sky, and revives therewith the earth after its death, and in the turning about of the winds, are Signs for a people who understand. These are the Ayaat (proof, evidence) of Allah, which We recite to you with truth. Then in which speech after Allah and His Ayaat will they believe? “ (Al-Jaathiyah: 3-6)
