more than 1000 km...went up to the different levels of heaven, met the different 'prophets' in each level, have some chat with them, met Allah, bargain for the number of prayers to be offered a day, successfully bringing it down from 50 a day to 5 a day........ALL IN ONE NIGHT on a winged donkey.

While it take angels 50,000 years to reach Allah...

How many light years does it take for the angels or spirit to reach Allah.

By Adnan Ahmad - LONDON UK

According to Holy Qur’an Surah Al Ma’arij (The Ascension or Rapture) Chapter 80 verse 4:

“The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a day the measure is 50,000 years”

In the light of the Qur’an and modern science I will prove this theory.

It is a fact that light travels 186,000 miles per second, and 1 light year is equivalent to 5,865,696,000,000 miles.

How many seconds are there in 1 year?

A: 60 x 60 x 24 x 365 = 31,536,000 seconds.

How many seconds in 50000 years?

A: 31,536,000 x 50000 = 1,576,800,000,000 seconds.

If there are 1,576,800,000,000 seconds in 50000 years, and if we multiply this by 186,000 (speed of light in miles/sec)

A: 1,576,800,000,000 x 186,000 = 293,284,800,000,000,000

This means angels and the spirit will cover a total 293,284,800,000,000,000 miles if travelling at the speed of light for 1,576,800,000,000 seconds

If we now divide 293,284,800,000,000,000 miles by the distance light travels in 1 light year, i.e. 5,865,696,000,000 miles

A: 293,284,800,000,000,000 divided by 5,865,696,000,000 = 50,000

Therefore it is a fact that it takes 50000 light years for the angels and the spirit to ascend Allah.

Considering it takes 4 light years to reach our nearest star, 50000 light years is a long way away!

All praise to Allah.

it's not a sign of the prophet, Eagle.

It carries all the signs of a ridiculous story.

Bargaining the prayers down from 50 to 5?

Did Allah know that Muhammad will bargain the number of prayers down to 5 beforehand?

Did Allah know that it's ridiculous to have 50 prayers a day?

Masjid al aqsa is understood traditionaly to be in Jerusalem

how can Muhammad visit a mosque that was not in existence at that time?
