    Where does the Sun go when it sets ?

    Where does the sun go when it sets ?

    Re: Where does the Sun go when it sets ?

    It doesn't go anywhere. The earth spins, and when the part of the earth you are on spins away from the sun, it appears to "set".

    Are you referring to anything in particular, for example the moon following the sun which sets in a pool? I'm sure there's a good explanation for that; I just don't have it.

      the sun rotates around the earth so when its set on the east side it appears in the west, and vice versa

        Why don't you just post the hadith you have in mind?

            The earth rotates around the sun! Not vice versa :rotfl:
            I thought the darkness/night just envelops the sun by permission of Allah. It goes to the court of Allah where again the next morning it will seek Allahs permission to rise :love:

                      A few blocks from your backyard.

                          So that's what that thing is. Every time I walk by it I stare into it and wonder if there's any life there. It seemed so lifeless

                              I know the Hadith you are mocking at... but ponder this....

                              Where do YOU go when you sleep ?

                              Phsypically.... nowhere. You stay in your bed.

                              But you Soul - according to Islam - leaves the body and goes up to Allah (swt).

                              I heard according to a hadith of Abu darda (ra) when the Soul goes up to Allah (swt) during sleep if it is pure it is given permission to make sujood, and if it is not then is not, and according to
                              another hadith if Allah (swt) has decreed death for someone then his soul is not returned to his body, what we call "He died in his sleep".

                              The point being there are two aspects (actually several but for this discussion 2) aspects to the human the Physical and the Ruh (Soul).

                              Now back to the Sun.... if you want to know what it does physically go observe it (science) and if you want to know some of the secrets of the unseen then study Revelation (Quran + Hadith).

                              Allah (swt) revealed the Sun and other planets travel in a pre-set orbit.. .1400 years ago, but it is only in the last 100-200 years we appreciate what this means. In a similar manner Allah (swt) told us about the spiritual dimensions of the Sun, and in my view we (as a species) are not ready to fully appreciate this knowledge in our times, because Western thought is dominant in the world today and Western thought
                              focuses primarily on the physical and material.

                              Humanity has a long way to go before we fully appreciate the ayats of Allah (swt).
                              "And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers"(51:55)
