Explanation: Sprawling across hundreds of light-years, emission nebula IC 1805 is a mix of glowing interstellar gas and dark dust clouds. Only about 7,500 light-years away, stars were born in this region whose nickname - the Heart Nebula - derives from its suggestive shape (seen here sideways). The gorgeous image is taken with deep telescopic.

An hour’s worth of contemplation is better than a year’s worth of worship. - Sayings of Prophet.

"Blessed is God in Whose hand is Dominion, and, Who is Able to do all things. Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and God is the Mighty, the Forgiving,

Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou canst see no fault in the Beneficent One's creation; then look again: Canst thou see any disharmony? Again turn thy vision a second time: (thy) vision will return unto thee confused while it is fatigued." The Quran: 067.1-4
