The universe is expanding

The universe is expanding

The Universe is expanding after the big event of the Big Bang , and this is stated in the holy Quran:

“It is We who have raised the Heaven high with force, and verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it”

(Qur’an 51:47)

Einstein admitted his mistake in 1929 when Edwin Hubble, an astronomer at Caltech, made a critical discovery that the universe is expanding and showed that distant galaxies were, indeed, receding from the earth, and the further away they were, the faster they were moving. That discovery changed cosmology.

The Creator of the Universe, Allah, had already indicated more than 1400 years ago that the universe is expanding. He says in the Quran:

In time We will show them Our Signs in the utmost Horizons and within themselves, so that it will become clear to them that this Qur'an is indeed the Truth. Is it not enough for them to know that your Lord is Witness to all things (including this proclamation)?

(Qur’an 41:53)
