Quran – The First Heaven and the Seven Heavens
See the attached Quranic verse. What we and the world sees when we look to the heavens is only the first heaven. The further we see through telescopes or otherwise is just the first heaven.
Allah tells us in the Quran in Surah Al-Mulk, verse 3: “[And] who created seven heavens in layers.”
In the same Surah, verse 5, Allah tells us, “And We have certainly beautified the nearest heaven (the heaven of this earth) with stars and have made [from] them what is thrown at the devils and have prepared for them the punishment of the Blaze.”
We know from science that the size of the observable universe is 93 billion light-years.
The other remaining six heavens come after that.
Allah is the Creator and the Lord of the SEVEN HEAVENS. And indeed, “…to Allah belongs the dominion of the (seven) heavens and the earth.”
