Salam,

 

can anyone explain a bit of this? Hadith etc?

 

 

And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

Muhsin Khan
And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing.
Pickthall
And the sun runneth on unto a resting-place for him. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise.
Yusuf Ali
And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him), the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.
Shakir
And the sun runs on to a term appointed for it; that is the ordinance of the Mighty, the Knowing.
Dr. Ghali
And the sun runs to a repository for it; that is the determining of The Ever-Mighty, the Ever-Knowing.

 


And this:

 

36:40 - Neither is it allowable to the sun that it should overtake the moon, nor can the night outstrip the day; and all float on in a sphere.

 

 

How can the night outstrip the day?

Our sun is orbiting, or rather spiraling around the black hole at the center of our galaxy. Eventually, like everything else, its destined to find a "repository" for itself.

 

And you're right, the night can't outstrip the day (and thats what its saying). The moon orbits the earth, the earth orbits the sun, while the sun orbits the black hole in such a religious manner. This is why we can have so many different types of calendars and changing of seasons, tides in the oceans and so many other things related to this cycle. Its a system made for our benefit.
