Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam
in response to reader comment: Earth is flat

Submitted by Hamid Mahmood (Oman), Mar 8, 2008 at 09:11

Mr Btilly,

Holly Quran Sura 79:30, that is Sura Naziyat Aya 30 reads in Arabic " WAL ARDS BAID ZALIKA DOHAHA".

Now I will write word by word meaning of this Aya

WAL means AND

ARDA means EARTH

BAID means AFTER

ZALIKA means THAT

DOHAHA MEANS EGG SHAPED THING

Now see the English translation of the Sura 79:30 " And the earth , moreover, hath he extended in egg shape." Before this Sura, other suras are talking about the happening of day and night.

Lets see the meaning of the Suar 15:19 you quoted. Its translation is " And the earth we have spread out ; set thereon Mountains firm and immoveable; And produced therein all kinds of things in due balance".

You have mentioned this Sura totally out of context. Here Allah is not mentioning shape of the earth but talking how he has spread earth and put things on it.

This is how people like you who are enemy of Isalm for reasons best known to them, give totally wrong arguments. Or they have been brain washed by media.

As per Bible earth is flat. I have watched a bebate on Peace Channel between Dr Zakir Naik from India and Dr Cambel from USA. In front of many audiences in USA, Dr Zakir proved that Quran says earth is egg shaped and as per Bible earth is flat. This debate is regularly broadcasted on Peace Channel, now on the air in USA as well.

Dear Bitly, you said Allah lied (Nauzobullah-- this is in Arabic you will not understand--we say this when we say when some one mentions wrong thing for Allah and we have to repeat it for tha sake of argument), I dont understand who do you people say it for the creator. He is your God as well. My God and your God are not different. There is only one Allah, you call him by whatever good name.

You can never have total happiness and your souel can never be in peace by not believing in Allah. And Allah will never excuse such acts. Before it is too late and you die as non-believer,you will remain in hell for ever. My humble advice to you is to believe in Allah, read Quran, go to some American muslim and know about Islam.

Regards,

Hamid
