33 years ago, in 1967, while studying stars at the Cambridge Observatory with a radio telescope, Jocelyn Bell and Anthony Hewish stumbled upon something in space emitting quick pulses of radio waves. Nothing had ever been detected in space that gave off such rapid bursts of radio waves, one every second. First thought to be a satellite, that theory was debunked a few days later, because the object was stationary, and not orbiting around the Earth or anything else in our solar system. When several more were found, they were labelled ‘pulsars’ because of the rapid pulses they emit.

She later went to a boarding school, which gave her a second chance, and passed high school. She then was a physics student at Glasgow University, and left to be a graduate student at Cambridge University, where she made the discovery of pulsars. Later, she married and became a professor of physics at the Open University.

He joined the army for 3 years after that, and returned to Cambridge in 1946. He became a researcher in radio astronomy, and in 1967, he and one of his students, Jocelyn Bell, discovered the pulsar. He later received the Nobel Prize in Physics for discovering the pulsar.

Pulsars Foretold in the Quran 1, 400 Hundred Years before They Where Discovered By Scientist

1- By the heavens and The Knocker.
2- How will you comprehend what the The Knocker is?
3- It’s a piercing star.
HOLY QURAN 86-The Knocker, 1-3

The word “Tariq” stems from the root “TaRaQa” meaning “knocking, striking.” In many translations of the Quran this word was taken for a name and left untranslated. The word may also mean “to pulsate” like a beating heart, from which the word “pulsar” is derived, denoting an object that is far away in space, and like a star produces a regular radio signal.


In 1967 Jocellyn Bell accidentally stumbled on a gravity time warp a million times greater than that produced by the sun. The object she detected was emitting regular pulses. These pulses were reminiscent of heart-beats. At the time, such a pulsating object was not known to exist in space. At first, it was concluded that these signals might well have been propagated by intelligent beings, inhabitants of other planets. Invitation cards were printed, the media were notified and a seminar was arranged. LGM (Little Green Men) signified that intelligent creatures had been detected and were contacted by radio signals. Not long after, the source of the signals in question was discovered: it was a spinning neutron star, an object whose velocity was incommensurably great. The neutron star had another name: “pulsar.” Bell’s discovery failed to establish contact with the inhabitants of space, but she had found pulsars. The words “pulsar” and “pulsating” seem to accord with the word Tariq of the Quran, which means “knocker.”


In the second verse of the sura, The Knocker, we read: “How will you comprehend what The Knocker is?” A spoonful of matter taken from a pulsar would weigh one billion tons. Were we to depose a small particle of it on earth, the particle would pierce it and end up in its center. Just think of it, a spoonful of any matter on earth hardly weighing more than a few grams! This shows how difficult it is to conceive of a pulsar. A pulsar is produced by the compression of stars a couple of times bigger than the sun. The diameter of a pulsar can be about 15-20 km. Were we to compress our world in a like manner, we would have a sphere of 100 meters of diameter. It takes the earth 24 hours to rotate around its own axis, whereas the pulsar rotates around its own axis many times per second; all these things show how difficult it is to comprehend this striking, pulsating star.


Some have tried to identify the star mentioned in the verse and have claimed it to be a certain celestial body, like Saturn or Venus. Mustafa Mlivo, who claims these assumptions are not correct and that “Tariq” is none other than a pulsar, says the following:

Characteristics of the celestial object mentioned in HOLY QURAN 86:1-3 are:

1- It pulsates (knocks);
2- It is a star;
3- It penetrates, pierces, drills.

None of the solar system planets meets all those criteria because:

A- None of the planets produces pulsations that give the impression of knocking, beating.
B- None of them is a star. They are cold celestial bodies.
C- None of them produces such an intensive radiation.

As one can see, the Quran had already mentioned a star that was to be discovered. This star was indeed discovered, but in the year 1970. Since the concept of a “pulsating star” could not be imagined at that time, it was rendered in translation as it stood, i.e., “Tariq,” the meaning of it being explained in footnotes, in dictionaries and interpretations.

The Quran whose every sentence, every word is based on the finest of meanings, wherein lie hidden realms still to be discovered. The more we study the Quran, the more we are enlightened, the more we learn.

When was the Telescope invented ?

A Very Short History of the Telescope

Galileo and his Refractive Telescope Newtons Reflective Telescope
For thousands of years men and women sought to discover the mysteries of the night sky, but the quantum leap from naked-eye observation to instrument added vision was one of the great technological advances of mankind. It began with the lens. It’s origin is unknown, but spectacles were being worn in Italy as early as 1300. The inventor was probably making glass disks for leaded windows; he probably tested the clarity of a disk by looking through it and discovered that he could see better.


The telescope was the first optical instrument and its origin is surrounded by controversy. The most likely story puts it in the shop of an obscure Dutch spectacle maker named Hans Lippershey, about 1600. Two children were playing with his lens, put two together, peered through them at a distant church tower and saw it wonderfully magnified. Lippershey looked for himself and soon mounted lenses together, creating his “looker.” In 1608, Lippershey tried to sell it to the Dutch army, but his offer was eventually turned down because of claims from others that they had invented it. New of the invention spread rapidly. That same year the French ambassador at the Hague obtained one for King Henry IV, and in the next year, they were being sold in Paris and Germany under the name of “Dutch Trunks,” “perspectives” and “cylinders.” They soon appeared in Milan, and Venice and by end of the year, they were being made in London.


The most influential person connected with the telescope in its early days was the Italian scientist Galileo. Within a month of Lippershey trying to sell his looker to the Dutch Army, word of the invention reached Venice when an unidentified stranger tried to sell one to the Senate, who referred the matter to its scientific adviser Paolo Sarpi, who examined it. But then the stranger and his instrument disappeared, so Sarpi went to see Galileo, the city’s most respected instrument maker, who had just invented a new calculating device and described it. Galileo then “reinvented” it. The instrument was met with criticism and controversy as many felt that it did nothing other than create optical illusions and the image could not be trusted. In March of 1610, he published a description of his night sky observations as The Starry Messenger (Sidereus Nuncius),. Although it contained only twenty four pages, it astonished and troubled the learned world. He reported that the moon was not smooth, as previously believed, but rather rough and covered with craters; that the Milky Way was composed of millions of stars and Jupiter had four moons. The latter led him to challenge the long accepted geocentric view of the world system (the universe revolves around the Earth) and accept the heliocentric (the solar system revolves around the Sun) proposed some fifty years earlier by Copernicus. Galileo had proof!
On the night of April 14, 1611, a banquet was held in his honor outside Rome. Galileo showed the guests his instrument and let them see his discovered. An unidentified Greek poet-theologian happened to be present and he proposed a name for the instrument, one borrowed from ancient Greece. It was quickly accepted and the host, Federico Cesi, then officially christened Galileo’s instrument, “the telescope.”
These first optical instruments were what the average person identifies with the word “telescope,” a long thin tube where light passes in a straight line from aperture (the front objective lens) to the eyepiece at the opposite end of the tube. These have come to be called refractive telescopes, because the objective lens bends, or refracts, light. They were used by all the great early astronomers – Galileo, Kepler, Huygens, and Hevelius.


Newton's Telescope

Some seventy years later, Isaac Newton, inspired by Kepler’s work on optics and Robert Boyle’s recent experiments with color, explored the way a prism refracts white light into a array of colors. He recognized that a lens was a circular prism and concluded that the separation of colors, known as chromatic aberration (see below) limited the effectiveness of existing telescopes. He created a new telescope design, one that used a parabolic mirror to collect light and concentrate the image before it was presented to the eyepiece. This resulted in the Reflective Telescope.



We can see that the Telescope was invented not before 16 th Century

And Pulsars where not discovered before 1967

Then how was it possible for Prophet Muhammad(s) to write about the PULSATING STARS THE PULSARS in the Quran

1, 400 Hundred Years Before???

The answer is simple Prophet Muhammad did not write the Quran , but Quran is an Divine Revelation of God All Mighty who created this Universe !!!!
