Q. As-salaam Alaikum – My name is Khalid, and I am a student. It is mentioned in Qur’an that… ‘Sun and other planets revolve and rotate in a fixed orbit’. And at other place relating to the ‘Doomsday’… it is mentioned that… ‘Earth will collide with sun in some what a spiral form.’ When ‘Revolution’ and ‘Rotation’- can then the phenomena of colli¬sion takes place-How is it possible?

A. (Dr.Zakir): The brother has posed a question that it says that…  ‘The Sun and the Earth rotates’… and in some place it says… ‘Sun and the Earth will collide’. Some places it says  that … brother as I have told you, there are certain statements in the Qur’an talking about the signs of the Day of Judgment. And I myself quoted in Surah Qiyamah, Ch.  75, Verse No. 8 and 9, that… ‘the Sun and the Moon will joined together’. When? – On the Day of Judgment…  not today. It is giving you signs of the Day of Judgment. It is not telling you that – today it will happen. The name of the Surah was Surah Qiyamah, ‘Day of resurrection’… and give various signs , that the moon will be buried in darkness , the stars will fall down , the oceans will swell up, etc… These are signs of the Day of Judgement. Has it happened? – No… But before the world ends it will surely happen.  Hope that answers the question – No where does the Qur’an says… ‘in normal circumstances it will happen’.
