More gems from our dear hamid, but this must be the mother of all gems

From where have you read that Quran says earth is flat.

As you shall see below that the late Mufti of Saudi Arabia Shaikh 3Abdullah bin Baz believed that the Qur'an says that the earth is flat and that the earth is the center of the universe and that the sun and the moon rotate around the earth. He was a mufti and you ain't

As per Quran world is spherical like egg.

Really? so where does it say in the Qur'an: ana al-arid takuna karawiya zay al-bida? What do you think ?

Moreover it does not say sun sets in muddy pound. I hope you are little bit educated, where from have you taken these ideas.

Bogus. It seems that you are unaware of the story of Dhul Qarnain! How come you did not know that?

These are muslims who say that present Bible is not word of God because it has errors.

But the Qur'an is also full of errors in garmmar and synatax and also in cosmology as you shall see below

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.

Islamic drivel

Bogus and now here is your little lesson for today:

In 1982 the Mufti of Saudi Arabia al-Shaikh 3Abdallah bin Baz wrote the book:

Jarayan al-sahms wa al-qamr wa sukun al-ard

Or "The motion of the sun and the moon and the stationary of the earth"

The ignorant Mufti wrote this little gem of a book based on the funny Quranic cosmology (see Quranic references to the seven heavens) which is based on Ptolemaic cosmology. Or voodoo cosmology. The ignorant shaikh and his Allah were not aware of the discoveries of Kepler and Copernicus and yes Galileo. And in the same book that ignorant man insisted that the earth is flat and that the Americans landing on the moon in 1969 was nothing but a TV fake. And to add insult to injury he stated that anyone that disagrees with him that based on the Qur'an the earth of flat and that the earth is the center of the universe will be declared as a kafir.

How come you did not know that? Your claim is bogus
