[[Our dear Nasr does not seem to be aware that a Saudi Sheikh is telling us that the sun orbits earth. Oh you do not believe me here is the articlehttp://english.alarabiya.net/en/variety/2015/02/16/Saudi-cleric-Sun-revolves-around-stationary-Earth.htmlWhat a disaster and he is not wrong because this is what the Qur'an says that the earth is stationary and the sun runs in an orbit around earthNow go and tell him that he is wrong]]

And this is our dear Nasr's answer

Well, that is the opinions the Saudi Sheikh from 50-60 years ago whom you quote,

Hello: did you read the article? This man's name is Bandar al-Khaibari! and here is another artcile about this ignorant sheikh

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/saudi-muslim-cleric-claims-the-earth-is-stationary-and-the-sun-rotates-around-it-10053516.html

Now I dare you to go and tell him that he is wrong

Oh and here is a tweet and a video about this fool and his claim

And you know what? he is right after all this is what the Qur'an says

whom was using a source from 11th century. But you dont see the opinion being the same now as the movement of Sun has been made clear.

Evidence in Arabic or shut up

Turkey change their solar system from geocentric to heliocentric

And?

and there is no issue since the Quran and hadith did not say specifically about appointed course of Sun by Creator in specific.

I only do Qur'an and the Qur'an is very clear that the sun revolves around the stationary earth period

No trial made by scholars for transition of solar system made. As in Islam there is no such thing as Holy Spirit teaching scientific facts towards scholars

Well it seems that the Muslim holy spirit aka babbling Gabriel was teaching Abul Qasim aka Quthm aka Muhammad that the earth is flat and stationary

And so the same applies to Saudi Arabia after the prince of Saudi went to space. The sheikh no longer deny دوران الارض

No he did not. Did you read my links from his web site? Let me guess you did not and let me guess why because you cannot read Arabic

Why the lies and delusions? \

Leave islam and be free from the arabs and their خزعبلات Oh خزعبلات? Ask our dear Mr Naik if he knows Arabic which i doubt very much
