“And it is He who created the night and the day and the sun and the moon; all [heavenly bodies] in an orbit are swimming.” – Quran, Al-Anbiyaa, 21:33
These spectacular images of the Earth are the most true-colour images of the entire world released to date, according to Nasa scientists.
The images of the Indian Ocean and North America were produced by researchers at Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Center using images from the Terra satellite more than 700km (435 miles) above the Earth’s surface.
The Blue Marble series was pieced together from thousands of images taken over many months by the satellite’s remote-sensing device Modis, of every square kilometre of the Earth’s surface.
Allah’s signs are all around us, and modern technology reveals more signs to us every day. Some of Allah’s miracles are so small that we can only see them with modern microscopes; while others are so great that we can only see them from the distance of space, Subhan Allahu wa bihamdihi, glory to Allah and all praise to Him.
