Dear brothers and sisters, following Quran in pursuit of Islam is the only
correct way. Time and time again
Quran stands superior to all other religious material.
If one follows Quran as his/her religious guidance, one cannot be wrong.
Quran brings Islam into 21^{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.

How far is Heaven from Earth? This
question has been answered by using today’s science, Quran and the Miracle of
19.

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

[70:4] The angels, with their
reports, climb to Him in a day that equals fifty thousand (your*) years.[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.

*Missing word “your” or Kama gv 50, 70 4 5 6 7 50 = 3708250 x 19, this code
confirms that angels travel to High Heavens in day which equals 50,000 worldly
years. Thus humans see it as a long time therefore God asks the believers to be
patient while angels see it close. **Al-Muzzammil

We know from science today that there are cosmic constants, which remain the
same until the end of earth. One of
these, cosmic constants 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
recognise that particles associated with atoms can move instantaneously from A
to B. Bodies larger than atoms are restrained by the speed of light. The simple
reason is that the speed of light is relative to the speed at one is travelling.
For example if you are travelling at 50% of the speed of light, now if you
envisage the speed of light from this traveller, the speed of light remains the
same. Thus no matter how fast one
travels at, the speed of light will be faster than that.
Thus the speed of light remains constant.

Since Quran have been revealed for the earthlings, these cosmic constants are
also true for the revelations of the Quran.
Thus we can expect the humans to be travelling near speed of light when
travelling from earth to the high Heavens but not higher than the speed of
light.

Now basic maths is used to calculate the distance from earth to high Heaven.
In the book “Why Does E=mc^{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 this 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
* 60,000 = 3000,000,000 light years.
Thus the high Heaven is 3 billion light years away.

According to the science the estimation for the furthest galaxy in the Universe
is 14 billion light years. This fact
has been corrected by the Quran.
Because the science has estimated this value where as Quran has proven it by the
word of God and basic constituents of nature .i.e. the speed of light constant
and basic maths.

Now how these verses can be proven to be linked with this time limit to reach
the high Heaven. The Miracle of 19
can be used for this proof. When we
add the chapter, verse numbers and the time we get 3000,000,000 + 70 + 4 + 5 =
3000,000,079. When we divide this
number by 19 we get complete multiple of 19 which is 157894741 x 19.
This proves that this time is directly associated with these verses.
Thus the distance from earth to high Heaven is 3000,000,000 light years.
Thus the Quran once again has brought Islam into 21^{st} century.
I would at this stage like to put this figure in meters.
First we need to find number of seconds in a year. Which is days in a
year x hours in a day x minutes in an hour x seconds in a hour.
366 x 24 x 60 x 60 = 31622400 seconds then we need to multiply the speed
of light with these seconds to find out how many meters does light travel in a
year. Speed of light is 299792458
m/s. 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 the
distance from earth to high Heaven.
This number is 2.844045094 x 10^{26} meters.
This number is extraordinary large with 27 digits.
From this article we can also 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 math’s. I believe the following few verses from the Quran are referring to
Cosmic Constants;

[41:12] Thus, He completed the seven
universes in two days, and set up the **
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.

The above verse is general verse talking about laws of nature and that every
Universe has laws, such as in this Universe we have Milky Way Galaxy inside this
galaxy we have a Solar System which includes Earth which rotates around the Sun.
This law is specific to this Universe and similar laws are for other
Universes which are unique to those Universes.

(55:5-12) The sun and the moon are
perfectly calculated. The stars and the trees prostrate. He constructed the sky
and established the **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.

The above verses are specific to this universe. As I understand it the “law” mentioned in (55:7) is the law or Cosmic Constants. (55:8-9) One meaning of the word “violate” is “fail to agree with” which fits in well above. One meaning of the word “transgress” is “act in disregard of laws” which fits in well above. Establish means “set up or found”, or “set up the validity of by example or experiment”. Justice means “the administration of law; the act of determining rights and assigning rewards or punishments”. In (55:9) where it says “You shall establish justice”, when using the definitions described for “establish” and “justice” above, it makes perfect sense that God is asking and guiding us to find the Cosmic Constants through example and experiments like Einstein did to find the theory of relativity and the cosmic constant speed of light. It is recommended to agree with these Cosmic Constants and not to disregard them if you want to be successful.

Finally I want to reconfirm the figure 50,000 years as our time taken to get
to High Heaven which is 2.844045094 x 10^{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.

^{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.

^{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. This fact is verified by two different methods.

So if the angels travel the distance of 2.844045094 x 10^{26} per day
how many meters per second does it travel. 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.

Glory, be to God!!!
