Quasars, those very far objects with very high proper motions implying that their transverse velocities far exceed the velocity of light. Their space velocities are superluminal and are within a fraction of a degree from their transverse velocities. We propose that QSOs form a cloud that envelopes the cosmos. We refer to this cloud as Al Tareq Cloud. The jets although mildly superluminal may force the QSO forward opposite to the jet ejection direction. Jets also help in changing the moving direction of the QSO. In other words, jets help in speeding up and maneuvering the QSO. There are tw belts of Quasars; The inner Quasar Belt at Z= (0.25-0.4) and the Outer Quasar Belt at Z = (1.8-2.25). From the present Quasar study, there is an indication that the preliminary age of the universre is of the order 46-49 Gyrs.
