^{st} century and in many occasions correspond
to the science today. On other
occasions when it does not correspond to today’s science it gives true and
better understanding of the scientific facts.

**Fifty thousand years milestone in predicting the size
of the universe;**

The following verse talks about how long angels take to reach high heaven where
God is, although He encompasses all Universes;

[70:5] Therefore, you shall resort
to a gracious patience.

[70:6] For they see it far away.

[70:7] While we see it very close.

**Cosmic constants and the speed of light;**

We know from science today that there are cosmic constants, which remain the
same until the end of world. One such, cosmic constant is the speed of light.
This constant is particularly interesting because science has proven that
no one of this world can exceed the speed of light. However it has been
recognised that particles associated with atoms can move instantaneously from A
to B. Bodies larger than atoms are restrained by the speed of light. The reason
for that is that, at near speed of light any energy one puts in becomes mass and
at the speed of light 186000 miles/sec the mass becomes infinite.

Since Quran have been revealed for the earthlings, these cosmic constants are
also true for all of us and the Quran recognises this fact. Therefore for this
article we can only expect the humans to travel near speed of light when
travelling from earth to the high Heavens but not higher than the speed of
light. Quran tells us that there are other entities which can travel faster than
the speed of light, apart from atom particles.

**Quran confirms that the High Heavens is 3 billion
light years away from earth;**

(70:4) only tells us that it would take 50,000 years for us to travel to high
heavens; it does not say what speed we need to travel at for the duration of
50,000 years to reach high heavens. So an assumption is made that we humans
would have to travel the fastest we can, which is near the speed of light for
50,000 years to reach high heavens.

^{2}?” by Brian Cox & Jeff Forshaw, on
page 55, the authors give an example of travelling to Andromeda Galaxy which is
3000,000 light years (light year is distance travelled at the speed of light in
a year) away from earth. According
to this example it takes 50 years travelling at 99.999999% of the speed of light
to travel to that Galaxy. Thus the
simple math’s work out like this; It takes 50 years to travel 3000,000 light
years, then it will take 3000,000/50 light years to travel in 1 year which is
60,000 light years, it concludes that for 50,000 years which was the time taken
by the humans to travel to high heavens in (70:4) the human would travel 50,000
years at near speed of light. We know from the calculations done earlier that in
1 year near speed of light the human would travel 60,000 light years and for
50,000 years it would be 50,000 * 60,000 = 3000,000,000 light years. Thus the
high Heaven is 3 billion light years away.

^{st} century, by using the tools of this
century, i.e. the speed of light and basic maths. I would at this stage like to
put this figure in meters. To do that first we need to find number of seconds in
a year. Which calculates as days in a year x hours in a day x minutes in an hour
x seconds in a minute; 366 x 24 x 60 x 60 = 31622400 seconds constitutes one
year in seconds, then we need to multiply the speed of light with 31622400
seconds to find out how many meters does light travel in a year. To do this we
use a simple equation distance = speed x time. We know the speed of light to be
299792458 m/s and time taken to in a year is 31622400. Thus the product is
2997922458 x 31622400 = 9.480150314 x 10^{16 }meters. This is a very
large number with 17 digits. Now we
need to multiply this with 3 billion light years to find out the distance from
earth to high Heaven because it takes 3 billion light years to do that.
This number is 2.844045094 x 10^{26} meters.
This number is extraordinary large with 27 digits. From this article we
can infer that God has made the Universes in such a way that it can be counted
by humans within the context of the Quran and basic maths.

**Other cosmic constants referred in the Quran;**

I believe the following few verses from the Quran are referring to Cosmic
Constants;

**laws** for every universe. And we
adorned the lowest universe with lamps, and placed guards around it. Such is the
design of the Almighty, the Omniscient.

**law**. You shall not **transgress**
the **law**.
You shall **establish** **justice**; do not
**violate** the
**law**. He created the earth for all creatures. In it there are fruits,
and date palms with their hanging fruit also, grains and the spices.

^{26} meters away. We know
from above that there are 366 x 24 x 60 x 60 = 31622400 seconds in a year. When
we multiply this number with 50,000 years we get 1.57248 x 10^{12} and
when we include return journey we get 3.14496 x 10^{12 }seconds.

**We find out the speed at which angels travel;**

Now using entirely different method we calculate how many seconds it takes to
travel to High Heavens and back. Time taken = 1 + 10 x gh/c^{2}. Where g
is gravity 10 ms^{-1} approx. h is the how high we went = 2.844045094 x
10^{26} meters and c^{2} is speed of light squared or 3.00 x 10^{16}
approx.

^{2
}= 1 + 10,000 x 2.844045094 x 10^{29}/ 9 x 10^{19 }=
4.1600501 x 10^{12 }seconds!!!

^{12 }seconds and the value
calculated above 3.14496 x 10^{12 }seconds are approx. similar figures.
This thus confirms the distance from here to High Heaven to be 2.844045094 x 10^{26
}meters as calculated earlier. This fact has been verified by two different
methods.

^{26} per
day how many meters per second does it travel at. 2.844045094 x 10^{26 }
/ 60 x 60 x 24 = 3.291718859 x 10^{21} m/s. whilst the speed of light is
approx. 3.00 x 10^{8 }m/s the speed of the angel is nearly 3 times the
speed of light.
