[[1. How many skies do we have our dear Nasr? Hint: One
2. There is no Qul here so these must be the words of Muhammad right? So is Muhammad the author of the Qur'an? Hint: He is the author of this verse]]
Try rereading http://beta.quran.com/22/18. How many skies do we have. It is not one as to which extent does the sky ends is still not known to human. In Abrahamic religions, you have 7 layers of skies.
The verse begins with "Do you not " it is the Creator making statement to His creations.
[[3. Who is residing in the skies that pray to Allah? If is the mala'ika as al-Tabari tells us then how come Allah does not tell us that? Hint: al-Tabari is editing Muhammad's poor syntax
4, So who resides on the sun our dear Nasr? Muhammad the author of the verse is saying that there are creatures that live on the sun that pray to Allah! Is that true our dear Nasr?
5. So who resides on the moon and pray to Allah? Hint: there is no life on the moon! Oh those darn kuffar that landed on the moon did not meet little green men praying to Allah
6. Where is Allah's evidence that there those that pray to Allah on other stars? Hard and solid evidence]]
Reread the verse, "sun,moon,stars,trees,creatures,people" are creations of God that prostrate. Doesnt make sense?
You might want to read http://beta.quran.com/16/49
and also read http://beta.quran.com/17/44
[[7. Oh the mountains and trees pray to Allah? I thought mountains are busy preventing earthquakes so when was the last time you saw a mountain or a tree praying to to Allah? hard and solid evidence
8. al-dawab pray to Allah or animals pray to Allah Mash'allah do you include pigs and monkeys here?]]
Certiainly, all animals prostrate as well. But Allah said, read http://beta.quran.com/17/44
Mountains have deep roots, deeper roots will attract vibration first thus making lands with shorter roots attract vibration less. Also, as earth rotate, it contributes to movement of continent, a bulky shape of peg will cause less vibration towards creatures staying on earth thus making surface of earth inhabitable. Why more earthquakes happen nowadays, it is due to frequent movement underneath causing the forces gushing upwards and find specific location to gush the forces out.
[[9. What a disaster people praying for Allah and they reside on the sun and the moon!
As for the rest of the aya there is no doubt that there is a literary lacuna where the editors of the Qur'an lost the introductory clause to the rest of the aya after all Allah should have known better that no one lives on the sun or the moon]]
So you are saying there are people living in moving creatures based on your logic. Try to reread the verse again. And do it repeatedly.
