I have more questions for you our dear Nasr in Q22:18

الم تر ان الله يسجد له من في السماوات ومن في الارض والشمس والقمر والنجوم والجبال والشجر والدواب وكثير من الناس

Or Did you not see to Allah prostrates who ever is in the skies and who is in the earth and the sun and the moon and the stars and the mountains and the trees and the animals and many of the people

So I have a few questions for you our dear Nasr

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

What a disaster

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

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?

9. Then at last Muhammad qualifies this disaster by saying that not all people pray to Allah

What a disaster people praying for Allah and they reside on the sun and the moon!

Here is the real disaster this is what your Arab masters called Iltifat or poor confused Quranic syntax and that the above verse is in actual fact more likely than not is in two parts

الم تر ان الله يسجد له من في السماوات ومن في الارض

Or Did you not see to Allah prostrates who ever is in the skies and who is on earth. And this is the aya and that is it

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

What a disaster
