Quran and the Signs Of My Lord

Assalamu alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatuh

Stable orbit despite the vulnerability to changes

Verily! Allah grasps the heavens and the earth lest they move away from their places, and if they were to move away from their places, there is not one that could grasp them after Him. Truly, He is Ever Most Forbearing, OftForgiving.(35:41)

There is vulnerability to such changes.

There are changes in orbit, axial tilt, planetary collisions.

“Lest they move away from their places”

The solar system is regarded as chaotic too.

 

But still the orbit of Earth is predicted to be relatively stable over long periods of time.
