Harmony between the Quran and Science
“We have this planet (earth) situated at the right distance from the sun, so that it receives enough light and heat, but not too much; and so that its seasons are long enough, but not too long. In addition we have the planet rotating at the right speed, so that day and night are long enough, but not too long. This is an extraordinary concatenation of favorable circumstances. One can ascribe it to chance, or, perhaps more reasonably, to design.” – Herbert McKay, The World of Numbers.

“And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.”

(Qur’an 36:38)
