TATA The sun is made up of different celestial bodies, and is the largest Sun. The sun is said to be more than 1.3 million kilometers in diameter, or about 109 times the diameter of planet Earth.
The universe is illuminated by Sun, including light that reaches the earth. The earth’s rotation or rotation causes some parts to be exposed to sunlight and some not, creating day and night. Meanwhile, the movement of the earth around the sun causes changes in the seasons.
As Okezone summarizes, this is largely described in the Qur’an. As revealed in Surah Fussilat verse 37. Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala said which means:
And some of the signs of greatness are night, day, sun and moon. Do not prostrate to the sun and not (also) to the moon, but prostrate yourself to the God who created it, if only you would worship. ” (QS Fussilat: 37)
The sun has a function in life. One of them is related to photosynthesis, where plants process food and plants need sunlight for this process.
In scientific terms, it is stated that light energy is absorbed by green leaves or chlorophyll. Chlorophyll together with water and mineral content in the soil, all elements are processed into energy and oxygen.
Living green plants ultimately support the food chain for the survival of living things on earth. The function of the sun as a source of energy and the food chain forms a natural order that supports human life.
Not only plants and humans, animals also need sunlight to be sought or consumed during the day. Some animals are also nocturnal to hunt their prey.
