The Pulsar

What is a pulsar?

A Pulsar is a rapidly rotating neutron star that gives off beams of energy. And a neutron star is a star that has collapsed into a super-dense form of matter.

The neutron stars comes from the death of massive stars. Normally Massive stars when it dies it either forms into a neutron star or a black hole.

Small stars like our star “The Sun” when it dies, it will turn into a white dwarf and then slowly once the gravitational collapse it fades to become a black dwarf.

A dwarf is a collapsed core of a star,  and a black-hole is an infinitely dense object formed initially by the collapse of a massive star. The gravity of a black hole is so strong that not even light can escape from it.

OK, back to Pulsar topic:

Neutron stars spins very quickly and produce beams of radio energy that appears to flush on and off very rapidly. In this event they emits such pulses, therefore they are called pulsars.

Pulsar is mentioned in the Holy Quran:

سورة الطارق

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

وَالسَّمَاء وَالطَّارِقِ{1} وَمَا أَدْرَاكَ مَا الطَّارِقُ{2} النَّجْمُ الثَّاقِبُ{3} إِن كُلُّ نَفْسٍ لَّمَّا عَلَيْهَا حَافِظٌ{4} فَلْيَنظُرِ الْإِنسَانُ مِمَّ خُلِقَ{5} خُلِقَ مِن مَّاء دَافِقٍ{6} يَخْرُجُ مِن بَيْنِ الصُّلْبِ وَالتَّرَائِبِ{7} إِنَّهُ عَلَى رَجْعِهِ لَقَادِرٌ{8} يَوْمَ تُبْلَى السَّرَائِرُ{9} فَمَا لَهُ مِن قُوَّةٍ وَلَا نَاصِرٍ{10} وَالسَّمَاء ذَاتِ الرَّجْعِ{11} وَالْأَرْضِ ذَاتِ الصَّدْعِ{12} إِنَّهُ لَقَوْلٌ فَصْلٌ{13} وَمَا هُوَ بِالْهَزْلِ{14} إِنَّهُمْ يَكِيدُونَ كَيْداً{15} وَأَكِيدُ كَيْداً{16} فَمَهِّلِ الْكَافِرِينَ أَمْهِلْهُمْ رُوَيْداً{17}

 

At-Tariq

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

By the heaven and the night-comer (The Pulsar) (1) And what shall make thee know that which the night-comer (The Pulsar) is? (2) It is the star shing brightly. (3) No soul is there but hath over it a watcher. (4) So let man look – from what is he created. (5) He is created from a water drip-ping, (6) That issueth from between the loins and the breast-bones. (7) Verily He is Able to restore him, (8) On a Day whereon secrets shall be out. (9) Then he shall have no power nor any helper. (10) By the heaven which returneth, (11) And by the earth which splitteth, (12) Verily, it is a discourse distinguishing. (13) And it is not a frivolity. (14) Verily they are plotting a plot. (15) And I am plotting a plot. (16) So respite thou the infidels – respite them gently, (17)

 

The Name Al-Tariq in Arabic means the knocker. And we all know the knocking sound.. The way it is mentioned in the Holy Quran is amazing. And Allah (The God) knows best.

Below is the videos for a Pulsar sound. Suubhan Allah. (God is the greatest) 

The sound of Pulsar

 

The Sound of Pulsar

 

In the third verse of Surat Al-Tariq, it says: “ It is the star shing brightly. (3)

English translation of the Quran sometimes does not cover it all.. So I’ll describe it more clearly. The third verse in Arabic it says: “AlNijm AlThakib” The word AlNijm means: The Star and the word AlThakib means: The driller

Drilling through what! Allah knows best.  All what we know that spinning Neutron Stars or the Pulsars spins very quickly and produce beams of radio energy that appears to flash on and off very rapidly. The following video shows how the Pulsars rotates. 

The Pulsar drills

At the End, all what we know is little and Allah (The God) knows best. There are many translations/meaning of the Quran/verse, but all the studies now refers that the mentioned Quran verse above is pointing towards the Pulsars. No one can make a final conclusion here, we still need to do lots of research.. Allah is the Greatest and Allah knows best.
