It’s a scientific fact that the earth rotates round its own axis in a circular motion and its speed at the equator is about 1670 km per-hour, a speed that’s faster than that of sound which is 1,200 km per-hour, still we don’t feel such rotation. Allah, the exalted says in the holy Qur’an:
“Thou seest the mountains and thinkest them firmly fixed: but they shall pass away as the clouds pass away: (such is) the artistry of Allah, who disposes of all things in perfect order: for he is well acquainted with all that ye do.” Naml or Ants: 27:88
In addition to rotating round its axis, the earth rotates round the sun very fast, more than one hundred thousand km per-hour. In other words, the earth rotates round itself one full rotation every day and rotates round the sun one full rotation every year and it also rotates along with the solar group round the center of the galaxy in more than 200 million years to complete one rotation. Let’s contemplate the following ratios concerning the rotations; a day, a year, 200 million years. What’s more is that the entire galaxy rotates in an enormous orbit whose end is known by no one except for Allah, the omniscient; Allah, the almighty says in the holy Qur’an:
“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).” Ya-Sin: 36: 40
Such facts prove the mighty of Allah, the great; all glory to Allah.
