^{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.

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.

**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 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.

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

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.

^{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 an minute.
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.

**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.

^{29}/
9 x 10^{19 }= 4.1600501 x 10^{12 }seconds!!!

Thus this value 4.1600501 x 10^{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.

^{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.

**Glory, be to God!!!**
