And that it is He who is the Lord of Sirius.
- The Quran mentions Sirius by name in chapter 53, verse 49, This is a remarkable fact considering that at the time of the revelation of the Quran, nobody knew the true distance to Sirius or much about its properties. The existence of Sirius was certainly known to people at the time, as it is the brightest star in the night sky and has been observed by astronomers for thousands of years. However, it was not until the 19th century that its distance from Earth was accurately measured using parallax.
