Look at Allah’s creation and get an idea of His Majesty: We think of our majestic buildings as big. Then we look at the mountains and the oceans and we feel humbled. Yet the vastness of the earth is dwarfed by the planet Jupiter which is 1,300 times the size of earth.
Jupiter is itself dwarfed by the sun which has a diameter of 1,392,000 kilometers. The earth looks like a small dot compared to the sun. Is there anything bigger than the sun? Yes. The star Antares is 300 million kilometers across, making the sun look miniscule. The sky is filled with stars like Antares. The largest star discovered in our universe is CY Canis Majoris. It would take 7 quadrillion earths to fill this star!
Galaxies are systems of stars and planets with as few as 10 million stars up to a trillion. Galaxies can be as big as 100,000 parsecs (one parsec is about 31 trillion kilometers or 3,26 light years). There are about 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Galaxies are arranged in super-structures. The Coma Wall is one of the biggest measuring 500 million light years long and 300 million light years wide.
Is there anything bigger than this? Yes. These super-structures are just a small part of the super-galactic plane. The observable universe is about 93 billion light years in diameter.
Anything bigger? The fire of Hell, which itself is smaller than Paradise. Then there is the Throne of Allah which encompasses the heavens and earth.
And more majestic that even that is Allah, Most Powerful.
