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.
