The most comfortable place of the Galaxy

“ ... He has made night and day subservient to you, and the sun and moon and stars, all subject to His command…” (Surat an-Nahl, 12)

The Milky Way Galaxy, commonly referred to as just the Milky Way, is only one of galaxies among the 25 billions of observable galaxies in the world…250 billions of galaxies…Just think of this figure that we simply pronounce in the blink of an eye…If you count one galaxy in every one second, counting all of them would take 10.000 years. Furthermore, within a time span of 10,000 years, the number of stars that we shall count as a single second will be around 200 billion. The sun, on the other hand, is only one of these stars.

All the features of the sun are tuned for life in this world: its average size as a star, its appropriate distance to the Earth; the features of the light it emits; the conformity of the rate of its elements to our life etc. All features of our sun, which is the source of light and heat, is in a measure our Lord tuned for us with His infinite mercy. All-Mighty Allah, the Creator of our universe, relates this us in a verse of the Qur’an:


“ ... He has made night and day subservient to you, and the sun and moon and stars, all subject to His command…” (Surat an-Nahl, 12)

Just as how our Earth revolves around the sun, all the stars in the galaxy revolve around the center of the galaxy. Approximately 200 billion stars revolving around this center have different orbits. Sun and the Earth are continuously revolving around this center. The completion of one tour of this encircling is calculated to last for 230 million years.

The sun that is protected

Professor Guillermo Gonzales, an astronomer who makes research on the orbit of the Sun, noticed that in its voyage the Sun is protected from some dangerous zones in the galaxy. Gonzales states that under this special orbit of the Sun there are some special features that distinguish it from other similar stars. The two dangerous zones to which Gonzales attracts attention are the center of the galaxy and the spiral branches that are located outside our galaxy.

According to this, if we were close to the center of the galaxy;

In the center of the galaxy there exists a black hole three million times bigger than the size of the sun. With its amazing attraction force this black hole absorbs all stars. Scientists state that the absorption of our Earth by such a black hole of this size will last only a second.

Apart from the existence of this very dangerous force of attraction, the center of the galaxy emits very hazardous radiation. This radiation originates from extreme warming while the   material making up the giant stars is absorbed by the mass of the black hole.  
(Harun Yahya, The Creation of the Universe)

If we were on the branches of the spiral;

The Sun is also protected against the spiral branches located on the outer circle of the galaxy. These spiral branches are the birth places of many stars where giant stars are located. With their total mass, these giant stars render the spiral braches of the galaxy an intensive zone of attraction. These branches have an impact on comets in the Solar system, rendering each one of them a threat for the Earth.

There are trillions of comets in the Solar system. These are located in the most outer circle and enclose the entire system like a globe. These comets are normally on the orbit around the Sun but in the case of an appearance of a mass, it can go off the orbit. However, as the Gonzales states, the two features of the Sun protects us against the bombardment. The first one is the speed of the Sun. The second miraculous feature of the Sun protecting us against the spiral branches is the shape of its orbit. Unless other stars at its age with an ellipsis orbit, the Sun has a circular one. All these reveal that the location and orbit of the Sun are specially designed: In one verse of the Qur’an, Allah relates: “By Heaven with its oscillating orbits” (Surat adh-Dhariyat, 7)


As is seen, the findings related about the orbit of the Sun that could only be discovered by modern science were revealed 14 centuries ago in the Qur’an. These scientific researches once again reveal that the Qur’an is the word of Allah.
