Speed of Light; Accurate value inspired by a single verse from the Quran!

A little bit far from the traditional “Tafseer”, when a cosmologist finishes reading the verse Quran 32:5 “He [Allah] arranges [each] matter from the heaven to the earth; then it will ascend to Him in a Day, the extent of which is a thousand years of those which you count.” He wouldn’t miss the fabric of a physical model consisting of: Objects (Allah’s matters), Motion (from heaven to the earth; then it will ascend to him), Time/Duration (in a Day, the extent of which is a thousand years of those which you count), Distance and ultimately a derivable Velocity imbedded within the Holy verse!

Moon and it’s orbiting motion around the earth being the instrument Allah had created to help mankind count the years and time, Quran 10:5 “It is He [Allah] who made the sun a shining light and the moon a derived light and determined for it phases – that you may know the number of years and account [of time]. Allah has not created this except in truth. He details the signs for a people who know” …One might suggest the following physical motion model/problem: What’s the velocity of an object that travels in ONE day a same distance the Moon travels in 1000 years?

This would immediately recall the simple formula (we learned in year 5 science) … Velocity = Distance / Time … In other words:

V (km/s) = 1000 (years said by the verse) * 12 (laps/year) * Lunar Orbit Circumference (km/lap) / 1 day (said by the verse, in seconds, sidereal day)

Calculating the Lunar Orbit Circumference:

Distance = Velocity * Time

Thus; Lunar Orbit Circumference (km/lap)  = Lunar Velocity (Relative to Earth) (km/hr) * Sidereal Month (day/lap) * 24 (hr/day)

The Moon is running in two courses at the same time. The first is around the Earth which is noticed by us. The second is around the Sun (following the Earth) which is not seen by us. Verse 32:5 is referring to 1000 Years relative to us (of those which you count) which are basically 12,000 Moon cycles around the Earth.

If you’re on board of an air plane you’ll walk 5 meters to the Toilet but to an observer on the ground you’ve already walked 20 km’s! What matters us is what relative to us, the 5 meters, that’s what we count while on board!

Therefore; The Lunar Velocity (Relative to Sun) must be multiplied by the cosine of the Tangent Angle in order to eliminate the Earth orbiting the Sun effect and reduce the Lunar Velocity to what relative to us on Earth, just as inspired by verse 32:5

Therefore; Lunar Velocity (Relative to Earth) = Lunar Velocity (Relative to Sun) * cos (Tangent Angle)

Where the Tangent Angle = 360 * (Sidereal Month/Sidereal Year)

Knowing that:

Sidereal Month = 27.321661 (day/lap) given by NASA

Sidereal Year = 365.25636 (days/lap) given by NASA

Then; cos(Tangent Angle) = 360 * (Sidereal Month/Sidereal Year) = cos(360 * (27.321661 / 365.25636)) = 0.89157

 Re-constructing all variables in one equation:

Lunar Orbit Circumference (km/lap) = Lunar Velocity (Relative to Sun) (km/hr) * cos (Tangent Angle) * Sidereal Month (day/lap) * 24 (hr/day)

Knowing that:

Lunar Velocity (relative to Sun) = 3682.07 (km/hr) given by NASA

And by substituting all terms in the equation:

Lunar Orbit Circumference (km/lap) = 3682.07 (km/hr) * 0.89157 * 27.321661 (day/lap) * 24 (hr/day)

Resulting; Lunar Orbit Circumference = 2,152,612.349 (km/lap)

Coming back to the main equation inspired by the verse 32:5;

V (km/s) = 1000 (years said by the verse) * 12 (laps/year) * Lunar Orbit Circumference (km/lap) / 1 day (said by the verse, in seconds, sidereal day)

Knowing that:

1 Sidereal Day = 86164.0906 (seconds/lap) given by NASA

And The Lunar Orbit Circumference = 2,152,612.349 (km/lap) as derived above

And by substituting all terms in the equation:

V (km/s) = 1000 * 12 * 2,152,612.349 (km/lap) / 86164.0906 (sec/lap) = 299,792.5 km/s = Speed of Light!!!!!!

  1. hard to understand how you calculated circumference of moon, why not to do it with 2*pi*r formula? circumference given on websites is different from what you have calculated.

  2. After reading similar things on other websites, I think this calculation and method that is being used here is totally wrong. if our 1000 year is equal to one day, then what about our 50,000 years equal to one day mentioned in another verse??
    from 1000 year verse, it seems like angels are much slower than speed of light. and from 50,000 years verse, it seems like angels are slightly slower than speed of light.
    and if they approach speed of light, then time will stop for them and it will be 9999999…. years for us.
