Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran
in response to reader comment: The Saudi Mufti el-Sheikh Bin Baz said that the Qur'an says that the moon and the sun orbit earth and the earth is stationary and that the moon landing in 1969 is a lie

[[Our dear Nasr how do you earn a living? For the readers there is a strange pre-occupation of lazy old men with religion in that part of the world]]

The old men are giving reminders to always remember the Creator. People of surrounding give them necessities to carry on with life.

[[Then why does Bin Baz tells us that so was he a liar and for this see below?]]

It is called interpertration of opinion. Didnt he correct his view after the prince of Saudi went to space giving more clues of whats happening outside earth.

[[And here is tafseer Ibn Kathir to this disaster that the EARTH IS STATIONARY and that the sky can come down crashing on the flat and stationary earth]]

Read http://beta.quran.com/en/35/41 . Of course God is the one giving law of orbiting and gravity towards the celestial bodies.

[[What a disaster so it seems that the old Sheikh was correct now you put up or and you must pardon me shut up

And here is what al-Qurtubi says

أن سكون الأرض هو الذي عليه المسلمون وأهل الكتاب

Or Truly the STATIONARY OF EARTH is what Muslims and Ahl al-Kitab agree on..

And here is the book "The running of the sun and the moon and the stationary of earth" By Bin Baz and for the readers you can download the book and judge for yourselves]]

Ibn Baz has corrected his statements as he used sources from earlier interpretations. And Quran is not changed for what is presented in language of Quran is not contradictory at all. It is just matter of interpretation.

[[Wrong again the Islamic tradition tells us again and again that. Which means that Muslims should listen to what the likes of Bin Baz say and this is why I only tell you what you revered sources tell us and I disregard all translations because many Muslims and you must pardon me the likes of Yusuf Ali are blatant liars]]

But then Ibn Baz changed his view after Prince of Saudi went to space. So you say listen to Ibn Baz. And Ibn Baz corrected his statements.

[[Then why does the Qur'an say as per Bin Baz that the earth is flat and starionary and the sun orbit earth you tell me]]

Ibn Baz was referring to earlier tafseers and he corrected his view. But Quran is not changed as there is no contradiction to what is presented.

[[ROTFL it is al-Qayyum and do us a favor and stick to Urdu and al-Syriac name the word al-Qayyum القيوم is not an Arabic word and al-Tabari telle us that it must be القائم or القيووم

What a disaster al-Tabari is editing the Qur'an! al-Qayyum is a loan word from Syriac ܩܝܘܡܐ or Qayoma and here is the word in the Peshitta

What a disaster another foreign in the Qur'an]]

we are talking about ابن قيم Ibn Qayyim being referred by Ibn Baz

[[Evidence? IN ARABIC]]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abd_al-Aziz_ibn_Baz . scroll down for its references.


[[You cannot correct a Mufti this is like asking the prince to operate on some brain


Bin Baz was 100%]]

But Ibn Baz made a statement correcting his views. Right?
