Quran Clarified 1400 Years Ago That The Earth And Sun Both Revolve

We are living in a highly technology oriented era, the science has progressed so much that now the world has become a global village. Our communications, buying and selling re just a click away. Science explored it far later that the earth and Sun both revolve. Quran on the other hand gave details about the movement of earth, Sun and Moon 1400 years ago.

To be honest, Galileo Galilei (a great scientist) found out that the earth and Sun revolves but at that time this concept was against the belief of Christians. The Christian religious leaders got together and suggested punishment for Galileo Galilei. The Christian leaders were so much frightened by the unleash of this concept that they threatened Galileo Galilei to stop spreading this concept otherwise be prepared for the death penalty.

Quran talks about that how these objects, the earth, Sun and Moon revolves. Allah says in Quran: “And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing. And the Moon, - We have measured for her mansions (to traverse) till she returns like the old (and withered) lower part of a date-stalk. It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law)

The above mentioned verses are from Surah yaseen and these verses explain beautifully about how these objects revolve and Who controls it.
