And [even] if We opened to them a gate from the heaven and
they continued therein to ascend. They would say, ‘Our eyes have only been
dazzled. Rather, we are a people affected by magic!’
This similitude is amazing since it presents a universal fact which humans previously
were ignorant of, and only discovered during the age of
space exploration in the sixties. The entire universe is engulfed
in darkness. Light visible on earth is observed for two hundred
kilometers, beyond that, darkness is to be witnessed in every
direction, due to the rarity of water vapor and dust particles.
Far removed is Allah from every imperfection. It is He Who informed
us of this reality.
