7 heavens al(samawaat)
« on: March 24, 2018, 10:45:13 AM »

The number of times al(samawaat) (translated as heavens) is associated with number 7 in the Qur'an,  is 7 times in 7 verses.

------------------------------------------------ 1 ----------------------------------------------------
هو الذي خلق لكم ما في الارض جميعا ثم استوي الي السما فسويهن سبع سموت و هو بكل شي عليم

It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth. Then He directed Himself to the heaven, [His being above all creation], and made them seven heavens, and He is Knowing of all things.

------------------------------------------------- 2 --------------------------------------------------
تسبح له السموت السبع و الارض و من فيهن و ان من شي الا يسبح بحمده و لكن لا تفقهون تسبيحهم انه كان حليما غفورا
The seven heavens and the earth and whatever is in them exalt Him. And there is not a thing except that it exalts [ Allah ] by His praise, but you do not understand their [way of] exalting. Indeed, He is ever Forbearing and Forgiving.

------------------------------------------------ 3 ---------------------------------------------------
   قل من رب السموت السبع و رب العرش العظيم   

Say, "Who is Lord of the seven heavens and Lord of the Great Throne"?

----------------------------------------------- 4 ----------------------------------------------------
   فقضيهن سبع سموات في يومين و اوحي في كل سما امرها و زينا السما الدنيا بمصبيح و حفظا ذلك تقدير العزيز العليم   

And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

------------------------------------------------ 5 ---------------------------------------------------
   الله الذي خلق سبع سموت و من الارض مثلهن يتنزل الامر بينهن لتعلموا ان الله علي كل شي قدير و ان الله قد احاط بكل شي علما 

It is Allah who has created seven heavens and of the earth, the like of them. [His] command descends among them so you may know that Allah is over all things competent and that Allah has encompassed all things in knowledge

------------------------------------------------ 6 ----------------------------------------------------
الذي خلق سبع سموت طباقا ما تري في خلق الرحمن من تفوت فارجع البصر هل تري من فطور     

[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks?

------------------------------------------------- 7 ---------------------------------------------------
   الم تروا كيف خلق الله سبع سموت طباقا

Do you not consider how Allah has created seven heavens in layers



In 2 other verses, number 7 seems/is also refering to al(samawaat)  but the word al(samawaat)  is  not mentioned, the words used here are:

- taraa'iq:     ( translated as layered [heavens] / paths / highways ... )
- shidadan: ( translated as strong [heavens] / strong ones / strong roofs ... )

-------------------------------------------------- 1 ---------------------------------------------------
   و لقد خلقنا فوقكم سبع طرايق و ما كنا عن الخلق غفلين 

And We have created above you seven layered [heavens], and never have We been of [Our] creation unaware.

------------------------------------------------- 2 ---------------------------------------------------
   و بنينا فوقكم سبعا شدادا   

And constructed above you seven strong [heavens].
