 The Holy Quran on the Fate of the sun

By Magdy Abdalshafy

God says in the Holy Quran what means "When the sun (with its spacious light) is folded up" [81: 1]

The Quranic word used in the place of "folded up"  is "Takwir the turban", this is a matchless metaphor for causing the sun to lose its light. Takwir means to fold up; the light which radiates from the sun and spreads throughout the solar system has been likened to the turban and it has been said that on the Resurrection Day the light will be folded up about the sun and its radiation will fade.

The Holy Quran uses the Arabic word" Kwe'rat" in the place of "folded up". The word can be translated, according to Quran expounders, as: (1) Folded up (like a turban)

It is scientifically known that stars like the sun always explode forming a nebula that looks like a turban, this is stressed in the Holy Quran in the verse"When the sun  is folded up"

A similar size star of the sun end its life like folding a turban


(2) Made like a ball

It is known that the sun is not completely spherical, also it sends flames and these all will be disappeared when the sun collapses and thus taking the shape of a ball.

(3) Its light Fades away and eventually is extinguished.

 The consensus of Quran expounders says that the word" Kwe'rat means "to fade away and be extinguished, and this will happen when the sun exhaust its fuel.

 So in Just one word the Holy Quran condenses all that will happen to the sun when it ends its fuel

Almighty Allah (SWT) is the true lord by all the means and He (SWT) truly deserves the lordship of universe and heaven. Sun and moon are evidences of His (SWT) magnificence and splendor.

“And of His portents are the night and the day and the sun and the moon. Adore not the sun not the moon; but adore Allah Who created them, if it is in truth Him Whom ye worship.” (41 Surat Ha-meem-Assajdah . Aayat37)
