Meaning

Referring the Qur'an’s “7 firmaments” (which balance the “7 Earths”)

The 7 firmaments of heaven refer to the visible planets (and sun/moon), in order: moon, Mercury, Venus, sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn

(If you are a math/science-person, I’m sure this sounds like mumbo-jumbo, but.. I think it’s nice)
