Earth Spread to be flat with waters, and livings unlike Moon, (not spread to be flat for livings and no water extracted out from the Moon)

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: The Qur'an says that the earth is flat!

[[Not true the Qur'an makes it very clear that Islam is the religion of the Hijazi Arabs only so who was the rasul that was sent to your people in Malaysia because he is not Abul Qasim oh would you like to know more?]]

It good you mentioned about Hijazi Arabs. Try reading about prophecies about servant of God from the East that will bring covenant for mankind. And the arabs will be the one spreading His praise to far end of earth.

[[Is it true that the Qur'an says that the earth is flat in Qur'an 79:30?]]

First the verses is talking about perspective of human being at smaller scale hence next verse talking about cows mountain etc.. not full scale from outer space. That is why the language is earth spread to be flat for human to stay on.

Also a Mufti from 50 ago who wrote about earth being stationary, later got corrected by the prince. And the Mufti mentioned something about shape of earth.

In 1966 ibn Baz wrote "The quotation I cited [in his original article] from the speech of the great scholar Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah be merciful to him) includes proof that the earth is round.

[[Wrong al-Tabari tells us what Allah is saying and the one to be blamed is your so called Allah]]

Reread post above about the great scholar Ibn Al-Qayyim. Begs a question, did Al-Tabari and Al-Qayyim have different Allah base on your logic as what you just posted.

[[The ignorant is he who says that the earth if flat and put it in writing

What a disaster and we have three types of mistakes in this little gem and let me repeat them one more time]]

If you go to 16th century, the idea of flat earth still exist. Galileo refutes it.

But the mistakes was just about their opinion. Also your claim was refuted with story of Mufti quoting that shape is round.

[[And if we kuffar read your aya in Arabic we can find that you are using the EDITED دحاها and not Allah's word دحها do you know whatt his means ya ayuha al-ghabi al-kabeer? It means that you are EDITING Allah's little book]]

Try checking http://quran.com/79/30 whether دحها or دحاها is farther reaffirmed by recitation. As the words of creator are recited in tune of singing. If the letter is emphasises longer then there is letter aleph in between it.

The fact that you say editing was made shows that you do not know that verse of quran are recited repeatedly in prayers in form of tune. Some letter are emphasied longer. Try doing a video search on youtube to understand about recitation of Quran.

[[Or The earth with this (creation) he made it like a ball (round)

Then your Allah would have been right but he was in the habit of reading Ptolemy what can I tell you]]

You need to read the following verse as well. It is due to the might of the Creator earth surface is flat and spread out . Unlike the surface of moon, Also this allow for waters, mountains and cows to wander throughout the flat surface of earth unlike the surface of moon being waterless and without livestocks. The verse let the readers thinks about what the creator had provided to them. No issue really
