Quasar In Quran

📖Quran 67:5
And we have, adorned the lowest heaven with Lamps, and We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles to drive away the Evil Ones (driving them from the heavens and preventing them from eavesdropping. Read 72:8-9), and have prepared for them the Penalty of the Blazing Fire.

  • The passage ‘We have made such (Lamps) (as) missiles’ does not refer to a star as a missile. Instead, the Qur’an verse includes all objects that emit light, as the term ‘lamps’ can be used in a general sense to describe objects that emit light.

📖Quran 15:16-18
Indeed, We have placed constellations in the sky, and adorned it for all to see. And We protected it from every accursed devil, Except one who steals a hearing and is pursued by a clear burning flame.

  • In this verse, you can read that the Constellations have appeared without indicating that they are made as missiles, as the term “lamps” can refer to any objects emitting light. In Qur’an 67:5, various objects are mentioned, and from one of these objects, God made missiles to drive away the Evil Ones. Additionally, in this verse, the term “burning flame” is used, suggesting that stars are not the same as burning flames but rather a distinct type of object. It is important to note the term Constellations specifically refer to patterns or groupings of stars as observed from Earth. The term “constellation” is primarily associated with stars and the recognizable patterns they form in the night sky. Other celestial objects that emit light, like planets, galaxies, or nebulae, are not typically included in the concept of constellations.

📖Quran 72:8-9
And (the Jinn who had listened to the Qur’an said): we have sought [to reach] the heaven but found it filled with powerful guards and burning flames – And we used to sit therein in positions for hearing, but whoever listens now will find a burning flame lying in wait for him.

📖Quran 37:6-10
Indeed, We have adorned the nearest heaven with an adornment of stars – And as protection against every rebellious devil, [So] they may not listen to the exalted assembly [of angels] and are pelted from every side, Repelled; and for them is a constant punishment, Except one who snatches [some words] by theft, but they are pursued by a burning flame, piercing [in brightness].

  • It’s important to note that the messages in the Quranic verses are of two different types. Quran 65:7 refers to lamps, included all objects that emit light. However, from the Hadith, we know that the term “missile” refers to meteors. According to the Hadith, the angels attack the jinns with meteors, but they don’t attack to destroy. Instead, the angels attack them to drive them away from the heavens and prevent them from eavesdropping. In other verses, the term “burning flame” refers to another object, and that object is quasars.

How do we know that these verses in the Qur’an refer to different objects?

Based on the verses themselves, there is evidence indicating that they refer to different objects. Qur’an 67:5 refers to a missile, identified as meteors based on Hadith. Other verses mention flames, which could be interpreted as objects producing waves similar to burning flames. This high-energy radiation might be referring to flames, as attempting to approach a Quasar could lead to destruction. It’s important to note that these two objects are also referred to in Hadith in different ways. Before Prophet Muhammad, the jinns were used to collect information from heaven, and the angels attacked them with Meteors. However, when God sent Prophet Muhammad, this practice ended, as indicated in Quran 72:8-9. These verses suggest that there is now some kind of radiation referred to in the Qur’an as a burning flame, and any evil spirit can’t collect information from heaven Quran 37:6-10. However, these tow objects still the sources of driving the evil spirits from the heavens and preventing them from eavesdropping.

Is the Concept of Meteors as Missiles Scientifically Wrong?

There are some Non-Muslims who claim that science can predict the future, such as predicting the date of a meteoroid impact. However, the Qur’an does not explicitly mention the inability to make such predictions. Instead, the Qur’an states that God adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, and God have made have made such lamps as missiles to repel the devils. It is important to note that meteoroids are indeed a part of the adornment of space. They are among the many fascinating and diverse objects that make up the cosmos. Just as stars, planets, and other celestial bodies contribute to the beauty and complexity of space, meteoroids also play a role in this cosmic tapestry. As I previously mentioned, the Qur’an 67:5 refers to lamps as all the objects that emit light, and according to science, meteoroids also emit light. Therefore, Qur’an 67:5 includes meteoroid objects in this verse and refers to them as missiles. According to the Qur’an and Hadith, the purpose of meteoroids is to drive away these malevolent forces. This perspective cannot be definitively proven or disproven by science, as it is a matter of faith.

What is meteors

A meteoroid is a small rocky or metallic body in space, often smaller than an asteroid. When a meteoroid enters the Earth’s atmosphere and burns up due to friction with the air, it creates a bright streak of light in the sky known as a meteor or “shooting star.” If a meteoroid survives its journey through the atmosphere and lands on Earth’s surface, it’s referred to as a meteorite.

What is Quasars

Many astronomers believe that quasars are the most distant objects yet detected in the universe. Quasars give off enormous amounts of energy – they can be a trillion times brighter than the Sun! Quasars are believed to produce their energy from massive black holes in the center of the galaxies in which the quasars are located. Because quasars are so bright, they drown out the light from all the other stars in the same galaxy. The word quasar is short for “quasi-stellar radio source”. This name, which means star-like emitters of radio waves, was given in the 1960s when quasars were first detected. The name is retained today.

Reference: Quasars

According to Science If humans were somehow able to travel near a quasar, they would encounter extremely hazardous conditions due to the intense radiation and powerful forces present in the vicinity of these objects. Quasars are associated with supermassive black holes that are actively accreting matter, generating high-energy emissions, and producing powerful jets of particles. Here’s what humans might encounter if they were to get close to a quasar:

  1. **Intense Radiation:** Quasars emit various forms of high-energy radiation, including X-rays and gamma rays. These types of radiation can be harmful to living organisms and can damage cells and genetic material.
  2. **Powerful Gravitational Forces:** The immense gravity near a supermassive black hole could cause extreme tidal forces that would stretch and compress objects, potentially leading to their destruction.
  3. **High-Speed Particle Jets:** Some quasars have jets of high-speed particles shooting out from the black hole at nearly the speed of light. These jets are accompanied by strong magnetic fields and intense radiation, making them extremely hazardous to anything in their path.
  4. **Extreme Temperatures:** The intense energy and radiation around a quasar would likely result in extremely high temperatures that could incinerate anything nearby.
  5. **Cosmic Environment:** Quasars are typically found at the centers of galaxies, and their surroundings are likely to be complex and dynamic. Interactions with other cosmic structures, gas clouds, and stellar objects could lead to additional hazards.

This description pertains to humans, yet we remain uncertain about the potential impact of this object on other creations. Notably, as per the scientific account, any attempt for a human to approach a quasar is deemed impossible. From this portrayal, we glean that this entity holds immense power, possessing the capacity to induce harm or devastation due to its emission of high-energy particles and the generation of potent particle jets.

Additional Information

In this article, we have included references, and we believe that the Qur’an refers to the object as a Quasar. This is due to its powerful nature and its ability to produce waves, which renders it inaccessible to both jinns and humans or any other creation. Nevertheless, it is important to note that our interpretation suggests that the Qur’an alludes to a Quasar; however, there is a possibility that the object could be something else entirely. It’s worth emphasizing that the Qur’an is not a book of science; rather, it offers an introductory perspective on our universe and provides guidance for mankind.
