Assalamo aleikom, if this topic has been discussed elsewhere, I apologize in advance for posting. I was reading about the end of the world and Allah (swt) sending Malek Maut to take the lives of the inhabitants of earth. Then He sends him to each of the Heavens to take their lives. And he finally reaches Jibrael until Malek Maut is the last one to become deceased. A few questions I have: 1. who are the inhabitants of the 7 heavens? Is it just jinn and angels? Are there any humans like living prophets there? 2. If we die before then do we miss the calamities of the world's destruction (the first blow of the trumpet etc) or are we raised from the dead in order to experience the destruction of the worlds? 3. Do the people who are in paradise now like the prophets, do they "die" again or did they "skip" this event. (Tnis sort of ties to momens who have died before the last day...and whether they skip this event as well. If there are any interesting reads out there that have answers to some of these questions, I would apreciate links. Thanks. salams. TLH
Salam, According to the Holy Quran, verse 41:12 Verse 37:6 Verse 67:5 All of these verses tell us that there are seven heavens or skies and that stars are present in the lowest or the nearest sky, while we all know that stars are very far away. Planets, comets, asteroids and the Moon are much closer to us than the stars. And for all we know, however deep you may travel into the known universe, there are galaxies with millions of stars as far as we know. So how can the stars be part of the lowest or nearest heaven ? Specially when we bring into consideration the following verse about the Moon: Verse 71:15-16 Unless I'm wrong and I hope to be, these verses sound like the moon resides somewhere between the seven heavens. Or that in all the seven heavens the Moon and the Sun exist as part of the whole heaven... while the stars, on the other hand, are located in the nearest or closest heaven. It just seems strange, though I have some possible answers on my mind, but I'm not satisfied with them so I seek help in this regard.
