Sun Travels

According to modern astronomy and space science, the Earth and the Sun are both in constant motion within our galaxy, the Milky Way. The Earth orbits around the Sun in a roughly elliptical path, known as its annual revolution. Simultaneously, the entire solar system, including the Sun, is also in motion within the Milky Way galaxy as it rotates around the galactic center.

The Quran mentions the movement of the sun in Chapter Ya-Seen, Verse 38. The verse states:


"And the sun runs towards its destination. Such is the design of the Almighty, the All-Knowing."
