In The Name of Allah, Most Beneficent, The Merciful " He created the heavens without pillars that you see… sūratluq'mān 10 "Allah is He Who raised the heavens without pillars that you see…(The Thunder 13:2) These two verses of the Noble Quran clearly are taking about the invisible dark matter and dark energy respectively. They are both described as invisible pillars. However dark matter is used in the very creation of the cosmos while dark energy is used in raising up the cosmos. We can see only 4.9 of the cosmos. Dark matter is an unidentified type of matter comprising approximately 27% of the mass and energy in the observable universe. The function of dark matter can be referred from the rest of sūratluq'mān10th verse. He created the heavens without pillars that you see and has cast into the earth anchorage, lest it should shake with you.., In analogy we can infer that the function of dark matter is to stabilize the cosmos. Dark Energy cause accelerated expansion of the universe contrary to expectations.
