Once again non compliance!

You are devising meanings with your own maligned perspective. Better take advise on your next reply with some authentic scientific source.

I can only take a big sigh for you! because you are trying to divert the talk on some non issues.

Where did Quran says that sun revolves around earth??????? Where????

Can't you see that earth looks flat when you walk on it???? so what big deal???? Quran confirms the earth's shape as follows

Linguistic evidence to the "dahu" (egg-shapping) of the Earth

The "dahu" in the Arabic Language means to extend and even out. It is said: "daha" the thing; "yad'hu dahwan". These terms can mean he either evened out and extended it or he threw it and rolled it. It is also said: "the rain daha the stones from the face of the earth," which means it rolled it and washed it away. It is also said: "The horse passed by yad'hu dahwan," which means he is beating his foot on the ground and yad'hu its sand. Also, the ostrich's mad'hi means its laying of its eggs, and "ad'hiha" is the nest where its chicks are born.

So as we clearly see, all of the above Arabic words that are derived from "daha" mean:

1- To extend.

2- To roll.

3- To even out.

4- Causing to become egg-shaped or creating, making or producing eggs (see the ostrich's mad'hi example above).

All of these meanings perfectly apply to our planet Earth and the stages that it went through!

And again, in the following ample Arabic and English vocabularies below, it is clear that the Arabic word "Dah" refers to:

1- An egg or spherical shape.

2- A squatted, dumpy, pushed down or pressed spherical object.

3- A circular motion.

Dhimmi, I am not tired of reading your senseless replies...I know it really feels a lot of pain when you find it very hard to prove your baseless faith as true and prove a true faith as false..Better come up with something new, so that your supporters may wakeup and tap you on your back.!!!

For me a person like you is more unlucky than others who are not native Arab or Arabic is not their mother tongue and still can't understand the true message of Quran

Waiting for your bullish reply!!!
