Flat Earth Society

Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think
in response to reader comment: stating the obvious

Submitted by Infidel (Canada), Jul 24, 2006 at 22:56

Your statement that Muslims are last members of Flat Earth Society does not provide enough details regarding what Muhammad(pbuh) taught his people. Let me add to your understanding:

According to some Sahih Hadith (authentic tradition), Hazrat Abdullah Muslem asked Muhammad(pbuh): "Ya Rasul Allah! Please tell us, on what does this vast earth is standing?" Muhammad(pbuh) replied: "Allah has placed this seven-layered, huge earth on the horn of a cow. This cow has four thousand such horns, and the distance from one horn to another is a journey of five hundred years. This gigantic cow is standing on the back of a giant fish. This fish is floating on glutinous water; the depth of this water is the distance of a journey of forty years. The glutinous water is resting on floating air. This air or atmosphere is resting on darkness. The darkness rests upon the Hell and that Hell is placed on a massive stone. This massive stone is resting on the head of an enormous Farishta (angel); the Farishta is standing on wind and the wind is resting on the empty world of Allah's Kudrat (glory).

You need to do more studying if you want to understand authentic Islamic geography.
