Seven Heavens in Talmud and Quran

The Babylonian Talmud (B. Talmud),and the Quran both agree in the existence of seven heavens. Islam and Judaism agree on this yet few Jews will venture into the Quran to find its hidden depths. Few Muslims will venture into the Talmud or Zohar to find agreement with their existing scriptures. Jews who dismiss the Quran must explain the seven heavens in the Quran and Muslims who dismiss the Torah must explain the seven heavens in the B. Talmud. Christians have to explain why this information is missing from the standard Canon.

B. Talmud, "Hab. III, 11; according to tradition, there are seven heavens, of which zebul is one. What were they doing in zebul, seeing that they are set in the rakia’ — a lower heaven, translated in Gen. I, 4, ‘firmament’?"

B Talmud, Mas. Menachoth 39a:19,20 "What is the minimum length of a joint? — It was taught: Rabbi says, [In a joint] the thread must be wound once, twice and a third time. It was taught: If a man wishes to make few, he should not make less than seven, and if many, he should not make more than thirteen. If few, he should not make less than seven, to correspond to the seven heavens; and if many, he should not make more than thirteen, to correspond to the seven heavens plus the six intervening spaces."

B Talmud, Mas. Pesachim 94b:4-5, "Now from earth to heaven is a five hundred years journey, the thickness of heaven Is a five hundred years’ journey, and between the first heaven and the next lies a five hundred years’ journey, and similarly between each heaven, ‘Yet thou shalt be brought down to the nether-world, to the uttermost parts of the pit’ - This is [indeed] a refutation. ..." Mishnah(4) According to the ancient tradition there were seven heavens."

Quran, Surat Al-Baqarah 2:29, "It is He who created for you all of that which is on the earth. Then He directed Himself to the heaven, [His being above all creation],and made them seven heavens, and He is Knowing of all things."

Quran, Surat Al-'Isrā' 17:44, "The seven heavens and the earth and whatever ..."

Quran, Surat Al-Mu'minūn 23:17, "And We have created above you seven layered heavens, and never have We been of [Our] creation unaware."

Quran Surat Al-Mu'minūn 23:86, "Say, "Who is Lord of the seven heavens and Lord of the Great Throne?"

Quran Surat Fuşşilat 41:12, "... them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with ..."

Quran Surat An-Najm 53:12, "Will you then dispute with him (Muhammad SAW) about what he saw [during the Mi'raj: (Ascent of the Prophet SAW over the seven heavens)]."

Quran Surat Aţ-Ţalāq 65:12, "It is God who has created seven heavens and of the earth, the like of them. [His] command descends among them so you may know that God is over all things competent and that Allah has encompassed all things in knowledge."

Quran Surat Al-Mulk 67:3, "[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks?"

Quran Surat Nūĥ 71:15, "Do you not consider how God has created seven heavens in layers".

Quran Surat An-Naba' 78:12, "And constructed above you seven strong [heavens]".
