A. (Dr.Zakir): The question posed was that the Holy Qur’an mentions that…‘Allah is the Lord of two Easts and two Wests.’- How can you explain scientifically? What the person is referring to the verse in the Holy Qur’an from Surah Rahman, Ch. 55, Verse No. 17, which says …(Arabic), that… ‘Allah is the Lord of two Easts and two Wests’. The Arabic word used here is… in Arabic, we have two types of ‘Plural’. One is dual plural …and one is plural, more than two. Here ‘Rabbul Mushrakaine’ is dual plural. That Allah is the Lord of two Easts and Lord of two Wests. Let us see what Science has to say about that… and we know that the Sun rises from the East- it sets in the West. But Science tells us today, that…‘ the Sun rises from the due East only on two days… exactly East. In the other times if you have noticed, this rising… the point of rising of the Sun keeps on varying. It rises exactly due East, only on two days – the two days of Equinox. All the other days it either rises, South or North, of East. Similarly it rises from one extreme of the East in the Summer solstice, and rises from the other extreme of the East in Winter solstice. Similarly the Sun sets in due West , only on two days- On two days of Equinox. All the other days it either sets South or North of due West. It sets in one extreme of West in the Summer solstice , and sets in the other extreme of west in the Winter solstice. So when the Qur’an says that Allah (SWT) is the Lord of two Easts and two Wests, it is referring to the two extreme points of East and two extreme points of west. But there is another Verse in the Holy Qur’an in Surah Maarij, Ch. No. 70, Verse No. 40, which says that…‘ Allah is the Lord of East and West’. It is not dual plural – it is plural more than two . The Allah is the Lord of Easts and the Lord of Wests. Therefore Allah is the Lord of all the various points in East. So in short, Allah is the Lord of two extreme points of East, two extreme points of the West and all the points in between – in the West and all the points in between in the East.
