God and His seven universes
Cont’d from page 2
One day the Sun will use up all its gas fuel and die. Our planet,
the Earth, has eight neighbors. Together they make a family of nine
planets which travel around the Sun. We call the Sun, and all the
space bodies that whirl around it, the solar system. Beside the
Sun and the planets, the solar system includes
moons, mini planets called asteroids, and comets.
[14:33] He has committed the sun and the moon in
your service, continuously. He has committed the night and the day
to serve you
Moons are rocky bodies that orbit planets. Jupiter has sixteen
moons. Mercury and Venus are the only planets that do not have moons.
All the other planets have at least one. Our Earth has one moon.
The Earth's moon is dry, dusty and lifeless. There is no air to
breath or water to drink. On July 20, 1969, two American astronauts
became the first living ever to set foot on the moon. Astronauts
left the moon in the lunar module containing 21 kg. of rocks that
belonged to the moon!
[54:1] The Hour has come closer, and the
moon has split.
[67:3] He created seven universes in layers. You
do not see any imperfection in the creation by the Most Gracious.
Keep looking; do you see any flaw?
[65:12] GOD created seven universes
and the same number of earths. The commands flow among them. This
is to let you know that GOD is Omnipotent, and that GOD is fully
aware of all things.
The size of our solar system is extremely insignificant in comparison
to our vast universe where it belongs. Our universe is the smallest
and the innermost of all seven universes. Our universe is estimated
to span distances in excess of twenty billion light years! The second
universe surrounds our universe and is very large. The third universe
surrounds the second universe and is even larger. The outermost
universe is the seventh universe. No number exists to describe the
size of this outermost universe! The incomprehensible vastness
seven universes is within the
fist of God's hand!
[39:67] They can never fathom the greatness
of GOD. The whole earth is within His fist on the Day of
Resurrection. In fact, the universes are folded within His
right hand. Be He glorified; He is much too high above
needing any partners
[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
Some astronomers think that the galaxies may one day start falling
back toward each other until they crash together in a Big
Crunch! In cosmology, the Big Crunch is a hypothesized
collapse of the universe upon itself after its eventual stoppage
of expansion! Is it not true that the Big Crunch is not a hypothesis,
not a theory but an inviolable law of God Almighty that will surely
take place on the appointed day, the Day of Decision!
[21:104] On that day, we will fold the heaven, like
the folding of a book. Just as we initiated the first creation,
we will repeat it. This is our promise; we will certainly carry
[7:187] They ask you about the end of the
world (the Hour), and when it will come to pass. Say, "The
knowledge thereof is with my Lord. Only He reveals its time.
Heavy it is, in the heavens and the earth. It will not come to you
except suddenly." They ask you as if you are in control thereof.
Say, "The knowledge thereof is with GOD," but most people
do not know
[10:5] He is the One who rendered the sun radiant,
and the moon a light, and He designed its phases that you may learn
to count the years and to calculate. GOD did not create
all this, except for a specific purpose. He explains the
revelations for people who know.

God willing mark your calendars and make plans for the 2006
Annual Conference of the Submitters.
We set up a web page on the internet to circulate the conference
God willing, the registration forms and hotel information
will be posted there as soon as possible.
Note: The communities that want to host the conference for
2007 should have their proposals ready by the conference time,
Did you know…
The universe contains billions and billions of galaxies, each averaging
also billions of stars. Assuming the sun to be an average star (many
are far bigger while some are smaller,) it is big enough to contain
one million earths within its volume. If we imagine the sun to be
the size of a dime, the nearest star would be well over a mile away,
a typical distance among stars. Thus, for example, if two galaxies
of 100 billion stars went through each other, the probability of
collisions between the stars of the two galaxies would be very small.
Glory be to God, Lord of the Universe!
