Candles

Posted By Snow at 9/12/2011

Having primitive lamps can make us experience the real night time darkness. A night time so dark, the sky will be shown as it truly is - sprinkled with stars! (*v*) ماشاء الله

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
فقضاهن سبع سماوات في يومين وأوحى في كل سماء أمرها
وزينا السماء الدنيا بمصابيح وحفظا ذلك تقدير العزيز العليم
And He completed them as seven heavens within two days, and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps (misbah) and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing. [Al-Quran 41:12]

Now, it's harder to see the stars when the electric lights shines all around the earth #sepi


Missing the beautiful night time sky

I found that candles can also be used to measure time. & the most sophisticated candle clocks presently known is by al-Jazari in the 13th century.

& al-Razi (Rhazes) first described the kerosene lamp in 9th century Baghdad. He called it the "naffatah" in his Kitab al-Asrar (Book of Secrets).
