What is the "Lowest Heaven"?

4 posts in this topic

In the Qur'an, there is the verse:

"We have adorned the lowest heaven with stars"

Now, we know stars exist in space.

Does this mean lowest heaven=space?

It would make sense, but isn't heaven supposed to be off limits for people?

The word heaven is a wrong translation. The word Sama means Sky.

The lowest Sky according to hadith means, till the extent of what humans can see/ explore as Stars.

The lowest sky?

What does that mean?

There are seven skies according to the Quran. 

Our sky could be counted as the first or lowest sky from bottom to top.

The count from our sky to the highest sky is where sidrat ul montaha is. Where the prophet met Gabriel in Miraj.
