6- Time relativity:

     On Earth, time is measured by the rotation of Earth around its own axis (days), and its orbiting around the Sun (years); or by the rotation of Moon around Earth (lunar months and years). Other units of time e.g. Solar months, Hours, Minutes and Seconds; are all “conventional” units devised by man to subdivide the naturally observed days and years into practical units. However, all these units are peculiar to our planet Earth, but physically meaningless anywhere else; e.g. the day on Venus is equivalent to 118 days of our 24-hour days, while on Jupiter it is 9 hours 55 minutes.  In the Cosmos at large, time is only relative. This concept of relativity of time is underlined by the following statements of the Qur’ân:

        §   And verily, a Day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you reckon. [22/47]

        §  Then it (affair) will go up (winds) to Him, on a day the measure of which is a thousand years of your reckoning. [32/5)]

The angels and the h (Gabriel) ascend taruj (ascend, wind up) to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand years. [70/4]
