لاَ ٱلشَّمْسُ يَنبَغِي لَهَآ أَن تدْرِكَ ٱلقَمَرَ وَلاَ ٱلَّيلُ سَابِقُ ٱلنَّهَارِ وَكُلٌّ فِي فَلَكٍ يَسْبَحُونَ
-Yâ-Sîn ( يس )

Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs

It is not for the sun to overtake the moon) it is not proper for the sun to rise where the moon appears such that it takes away its light, (nor doth the night outstrip the day) nor does the night come at the time of the day such that it eclipses its brightness. (They) the sun, the moon and the planets (float each in an orbit) revolve and turn round an orbit.
