((The Three Adventurers))
A man wanted to fly away in the air. He wanted to test by himself what happens on the high heights. He wanted to fly on the clouds. He didn't make wings like Abas Bin Fernas, but he decided to do that by using a big balloon. He had to search for a companion, but who will agree to go with him and take this risk or adventure. Could be one trip only and no chance to go back!
This happened more than 100 years ago. Specifically, in 1875. He met up with two friends and convinced them to go with him.
The three men took that balloon and it took them higher in the air. It could be a joyful journey in the beginning and probably there were a big crowd and fans for them on the ground. Waving for them and wish them luck.
It changed and happy time is gone when they went higher and higher. The adventurers started to suffer and face difficulties. It be more difficulties when the balloon go higher. When it reached 29,000 foot, the companions couldn't resist and lost their power and became worst till they died. One left and he lost his consciousness before his colleagues, but didn't die. If he died, that won't be helpful to give us the details of what really happened with them. Maybe God wanted him to stay alive to tell his story and what he and his late companions faced in their journey.
Human feels tightness on his chest and can't breathe properly when he goes up in the air. And that become more difficult when he goes more higher in the air. Only by using the new equipments and new technology of this age, he can go up without facing these difficulties.
Climbing higher in the air accompany with: lack of pressure, lack of oxygen, cold air and unstable temperature. The lack of pressure makes gas in stomach and guts extend which causes hard shrinkage and flatulence, which push diaphragm up and that make big pressure on heart and lungs,,, so, that causes unconsciousness in some cases.
These facts discovered by scientists after they went up in the high heights and made tests. While this had been mention in Holy Koran in Al An'aam 6:125 more than 1400 years ago.
Who told Prophet Mohammed about these facts?
God told him and Koran is God's word undoubtedly.
((فَمَن يُرِدِ اللّهُ أَن يَهْدِيَهُ يَشْرَحْ صَدْرَهُ لِلإِسْلاَمِ وَمَن يُرِدْ أَن يُضِلَّهُ يَجْعَلْ صَدْرَهُ ضَيِّقًا حَرَجًا كَأَنَّمَا يَصَّعَّدُ فِي السَّمَاء كَذَلِكَ يَجْعَلُ اللّهُ الرِّجْسَ عَلَى الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُون))
((And whomsoever it is Allah's will to guide, He expandeth his bosom unto the Surrender, and whomsoever it is His will to send astray, He maketh his bosom close and narrow as if he were engaged in sheer ascent. Thus Allah layeth ignominy upon those who believe not.)) 6:125
