I found this in one of the forums and I would like to share it with you.

one of the verses are talking about angels
32-5 (Allah) Rules the cosmic affair** from the heavens to the Earth. Then this affair travels to Him a distance in one day, at a measure of one thousand years of what you count.**
the verse is talking about the angels whom carry out these orders from heavens to the earth .
in the time of mohammed (pbuh) people measured the distances neither in kilometers nor in miles but rather by how much time they needed to walk.
For example, a village two days away meant a distance equivalent to walking for two days; ten days away meant a distance equivalent to walking for ten days… However in this verse the Quran specifies 1000 years of what they counted (not what they walked). Those people back then followed the lunar calendar and counted 12 lunar months each year. These months are related to the moon and not related to the sun. Hence in 1 day the angels will travel a distance of 1000 years of what they counted (the moon). Since this verse is referring to distance, then God is saying that angels travel in one day the same distance that the moon travels in 12000 lunar orbits.
**Outside gravitational fields this speed turned out to be the known speed of light , which means that the speed of the angles equal the speed of the light **
(mslems believe that angels are low density creatures, and that God created them originally from light )
yet , i didn’t proof anything , be patient
there is another verse in the quran informes us different informations about traveling of angles from earth to heaven which say
70-4 The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years.
Here angels will experience 1 day while humans will measure it as 50,000 years (time vs. time and not time vs. distance as the previous lunar verse)
However, according to the theory of special relativity, given this time difference (time dilation), we can calculate the speed at which that object traveled.
We can verify if those angels really accelerate up to the speed of light, as claimed by Moslems, on the first verse
Where ∆to is the time measured for a mover by a mover;
∆t is the time measured for a mover by a stationary frame; v is the velocity of the mover relative to the stationary observer)
∆to is the time experienced by angels (1 day).
∆t is the time as measured by humans (50,000 lunar years x12 lunar months/lunar year x 27.321661 days/lunar month).
v is the velocity of angels in this case (which we intend to calculate and then compare to the known speed of light).
c is the known speed of light 2997924.48 km/s, the speed of light in vacuum
From the above equation we can solve for the unknown velocity:
So let’s insert the Moslem claims and see if their angels really accelerate up to the speed of light or not. Insert dates from this verse The angels and the Spirit ascend to Him in a day, the measure of which is fifty thousand years into the formula
v = 299792.4579999994 km / s ( and this is the speed of light )
