## Quran On Time Dilation And Relativity

### Velocity Time Dilation

One of the most revolutionary concepts that we learned in the 20th century is that time is not a universal measurement. The rate at which it passes depends entirely on your speed and acceleration at any given moment. In Einstein’s theory of relativity, time dilation describes a difference of elapsed time between two events, as measured by observers that are moving relative to each other. Basically, it states that the faster we go, the more the time is affected and almost stops for somebody moving at a speed close to the velocity of light.

In order to attempt to prove this theory of time dilation, two very accurate atomic clocks were synchronized and one was taken on a high-speed trip on an airplane. When the plane returned, the clock that took the plane ride was slower by exactly the amount Einstein’s equations predicted. Thus, a moving clock runs more slowly when viewed by a frame of reference that is not in
