How many light years does it take for the angels or spirit to reach Allah.

According to Holy Qur’an Surah Al Ma’arij (The Ascension or Rapture) Chapter 80 verse 4:

 

“The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a day the measure is 50,000 years”

 

In the light of the Qur’an and modern science I will prove this theory.

 

It is a fact that light travels 186,000 miles per second, and 1 light year is equivalent to 5,865,696,000,000  miles.

How many seconds are there in 1 year?

 

A: 60 x 60 x 24 x 365 = 31,536,000 seconds.

 

How many seconds in 50000 years?

 

A: 31,536,000 x 50000 = 1,576,800,000,000 seconds.

 

If there are 1,576,800,000,000  seconds in 50000 years, and if we multiply this by 186,000 (speed of light in miles/sec)

 

A: 1,576,800,000,000 x 186,000  = 293,284,800,000,000,000

 

This means angels and the spirit will cover a total 293,284,800,000,000,000 miles if travelling at the speed of light for 1,576,800,000,000 seconds

 

If we now divide 293,284,800,000,000,000 miles by the distance light travels in 1 light year, i.e. 5,865,696,000,000  miles

 

A: 293,284,800,000,000,000 = 50,000

       5,865,696,000,000

 

Therefore it is a fact that it takes 50000 light years for the angels and the spirit to ascend Allah.

 

Considering it takes 4 light years to reach our nearest star, 50000 light years is a long way away!

 

 

All praise to Allah.
