Quran on Air Pressure

Quran on Air Pressure

Allah says:

(And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam, and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky. Thus Allah puts the wrath on those who believe not.) (6:125)

It can be concluded from this verse that the more one ascends into the atmosphere the harder it is for him to breathe due to the reduction in pressure and low oxygen levels. This matter cannot be proven by anyone unless he ascends skywards! This fact was discovered only after man learnt how to fly and reached high elevations.

When an individual ascends into the sky beyond eight kilometers over sea level they would encounter problems specific to breathing due to the lack of oxygen and weak air pressure. A problem frequently encountered is hypoxia, which is a deficiency in the amount of oxygen reaching body tissues.


Astronauts wear special protective gear to enable them to breathe at high altitudes
