The Expanding Universe

The Quran mentions that the universe is expanding, which is a concept well-established in modern cosmology. The idea that the cosmos are in a state of expansion was unknown at the time the Quran was revealed, which some cite as an indication of the Quran’s divine origins.

وَٱلسَّمَآءَ بَنَيْنَٰهَا بِأَيْي۟دٍۢ وَإِنَّا لَمُوسِعُونَ

We constructed the universe with power, and We are expanding it.
