The world may be stunned by the blue moon but it requires intelligence to realise the Creator behind it all. The Designer of this all, Allah Ta’ala says,
Quran – Surah No. 3 آل عمران
Ayah No. 190
Translation: “Surely, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are signs for the people of intelligence”
Thus Einstein and Ilk were not considered the men of intelligence according to their Creator because they failed to realize there is One Sustainer, Allah Ta’ala who is in full control.
It was recorded that the Super Blue Moon which occured yesterday, August 31, 2023, is the biggest supermoon of the year, the second this month, and the last Super Blue Moon till 2037.
Super Blue Moon 2023: Why the Blue Moon is also a supermoon
The Blue Moon is a supermoon because its entire sunlit side will be in line with the Sun and the Earth, or, in other words, the full Moon will appear opposite the Sun in the Earth-based longitude.
The Moon revolves around the Earth, and during this revolution, it reaches a point in its orbit where it is closest to the Earth. This point is called the perigee, and is about 3,63,300 kilometres from Earth. When a Moon is at its perigee at the same time as it is full, Earth witnesses a slightly brighter and larger version of its only natural satellite. Such a Moon, which is up to seven per cent larger than an average full Moon, is known as a supermoon.
Super Blue Moon 2023: Is the Super Blue Moon of August 2023 blue in colour? The only reason why the supermoon is known as a Super Blue Moon is that it is rare to have two full Moons in a single month, and the phrase “once in a blue moon” is used to refer to unusual events. Only one full Moon occurs in most months because a lunar cycle, which extends from a full Moon to a new Moon, and back to full, lasts 29.5 days.
The different phases of the Moon teaches men that be cautious about your time spent on this Earth. Dedicate your lives to serving The Everliving, Allah Ta’ala.
Quran – Surah No. 2 البقرة
Ayah No. 189
Translation: “They ask you about the new moons. Say: They are indicative of time for the people, and of the Hajj.”
