I came across this Hadith in Bukhari. The Prophet (sws) explains to Abu Dharr:
Do you know where the sun sets...? Indeed it travels till it prostates itself underneath the throne. (No: 4428)
My question is regarding the following verse of the Qur’an:
I am from Kashmir University and doing post graduation in physics and my core paper is astrophysics. I have read that the evolution of the universe takes place through the through Big Bang theory according to which a point mass explodes and heavenly bodies are produced. Please guide me from religious point of view.
My question is actually about my own behavior. I mostly judge all Islamic beliefs on two scales either Science or Logic. So, I want to ask you a question that whether this behavior is correct or not? Because when I think on Islam logically or scientifically I stuck at most of things which can’t be proven on these two criteria?
Q 31:34 reads:
Verily the knowledge of the Hour is with Allah (alone). It is He Who sends down rain, and He Who knows what is in the wombs. Nor does any one know what it is that he will earn on the morrow: Nor does any one know in what land he is to die. Verily with Allah is full knowledge and He is acquainted (with all things).

What is the confluence of Qur’an and science? For example again and again the Qur’an claims the heart to be the seat of decisions, whilst science has held the brain is responsible. Likewise, the Qur’an and Hadith refer to the seven heavens, whilst scientific proof contradicts it? Please elaborate.
Is this right to do scientific interpretation (Tafseer-i ilmi) of the Holy Qur’an and derive scientific laws from its verses?
Many exegetes interpret the Qur'ānic verses scientifically. You claim that the Holy Qur'an is not a book of science. This is a book of religious guidance and we should study specifically with this point of view. What I want to know is that why should not we explain the verses scientifically that discuss scientific matters.
