Colors Of The Sky

1301042352All of us know that there are seven skies, one on top of the other and the throne of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala lies on the topmost sky. But many of us do not know the the names and colors of those skies. I was going through something and I got to read about them which I am stating here:

1. Rafi                            Water Colored

2. Qaydoom                   Cobalt Colored

3. Madoom                     Brass Colored

4. Arfaloon                     Silver Colored

5. Hayoon                      Gold Colored

6. Aroos                         Green Garnet Colored

7. Ajma                           White Pearl Colored

In the Quran, Allah Ta’ala has mentioned the seven skies various times. In Surah Fussilat (Chapter 41, Verse 12), Allah says, “And He created seven skies (heavens) in two days, and taught each sky its duties. And He adorned the nearest sky (or: the sky of this world) with lamps (stars)…”  Also, in Surah Baqarah (Chapter 2, Verse 29), Allah says, “It is He who diverted His attention upwards and created 7 skies, and He knows every thing” and in  Surah Bani-Israil (Verse 44), “All the seven skies and the earths and whatever is beneath them are glorifying Him”.

alnilam-Stars-Patternhere are seven layers of Jannah (Heaven) also associated with each level of the sky and each of these layers has a name assigned to it:

1. Firdaus or Paradise

2. ‘Adn

3. Na’iim

4. Na’wa

5. Darussalaam

6. Daarul Muaqaamah

7. Al-Muqqamul

(Amin & Khuldi)

The more good deeds one has performed the higher the level of Jannah one is directed to. It has been said that the lowest level of Jannah is one-hundred times better than the greatest life on earth. The highest level is the seventh heaven, in which God can be seen and palaces are built by angels for the occupants using solid gold.It is that level to which the prophets, martyrs and other pious people will go at the time of their death.
