Dear Jaladhi,

From where have you read that Quran says earth is flat. As per Quran world is spherical like egg. Moreover it does not say sun sets in muddy pound. I hope you are little bit educated, where from have you taken these ideas.

These are muslims who say that present Bible is not word of God because it has errors. One big error in Bible is that it says earth is flat. It is the Quran which first time ever 1400 years said that earth is sphericle. Moon takes light from Sun. Earth rotates. These facts were proved only some hundred years ago while it is the Quran which first time gave these facts 1400 years ago.

Water sycle was mentioned first time in Quran. Another miracle of Quran which has been proved by science just 30/50 years ago, it says :this world is expanding". That means the distance between glaxies is increasing. Quran said it 1400 years ago, dear, therefore many scientists have accepted Islam. They are shocked to know that how come Quran told these scientific facts 1400 years ago. Hence this book can only be from its creator. There are many such miracles of Quran.
