“It is Allah who made for you the earth a place of settlement and the sky a ceiling and formed you and perfected your forms and provided you with good things. That is Allah , your Lord; then blessed is Allah , Lord of the worlds.

馃摉Quran聽27:88
And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. [It is] the work of Allah , who perfected all things. Indeed, He is Acquainted with that which you do.

Ibn Hazm (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

The proofs of the Qur鈥檃n and Sunnah indicate that it is round. End quote, Ibn Katheer said:That聽is, He spread it out, prepared it, made it stable and made it firm by means of the mountains.
鈼廡afseer Ibn Katheer, 8/247

[He] who made for you the earth a bed [spread out] and the sky a ceiling and sent down from the sky, rain and brought forth thereby fruits as provision for you. So do not attribute to Allah equals while you know [that there is nothing similar to Him].

means that it is spread out and prepared for you and for your benefit, so that you can cultivate it, build dwellings in it and travel through it.

Ibn Katheer said:
That is, it is prepared for people in such a way that they can live in it, and it is firm, stable and steady.
鈼廡afseer Ibn Katheer, 8/307

  • There is no contradiction between saying that it is round and saying that it was spread out, because in fact in its totality it is round, but to the one who stands on it and looks at it, it appears flat, as it appears to everyone.

Earth is a rotating sphere.

The Quran says that when the night and the day overlap, they make a ball (sphere)

馃摉Quran聽39.5
[Allah] Created the heavens and the Earth in truth. He overlaps [Yukawer in Arabic 賷購賰賻賵賾賽乇購] the night over the day and overlaps [Yukawer 賷購賰賻賵賾賽乇購] the day over the night, and enslaved the sun and the moon. ALL MOVE (Kullon Yajree 賰賱 賷噩乇賷) to a prerecorded destiny. Is He not the Exalted, the Forgiver?

The Arabic word “Kura” means ball; its verb “Yukawer 賷購賰賻賵賾賽乇購” means to make into a ball. The Quran says that the overlapping of the night and the day makes a ball (sphere).聽 Here also the Quran is referring to ALL MOVING, not only the sun and moon but also Earth.

In聽Arabic grammar there is difference between the singular (one), binary (two) and plural (three or more)

The reference to binary is “Kilahuma Yajreean 賰賱丕賴賲丕 賷噩乇賷丕賳” however the Quran said “Kullon yajree 賰賱 賷噩乇賷” referring to the plural (three or more). Since the sun and moon are just two but the Quran refers to three or more then according to the Quran all the three move: sun, moon and Earth.

Also, The Quran says that Earth has a diameter (diameter is simply twice the radius).

馃摉Quran聽55,33 O company of Jinn and man, escape the diameters (Aktar in Arabic 丕賯胤丕乇) of the Heavens and the Earth if you can, You won’t escape without authority.

  1. Diameter in Arabic is Kutr 賯胤乇. Its plural is Aktar 丕賯胤丕乇. Radii and diameters are properties of circles or spheres only. This conforms with the previus verse, to make into a ball [Yukawer 賷購賰賻賵賾賽乇購].
  2. The rotation of Earth is slowing down, that is, days are getting longer. The Quran says that Allah persistently asks more of the day and more of the night, that is, for the day to get longer.

馃摉Quran聽7.54
Indeed, your Lord is Allah , who created the heavens and earth in six days and then established Himself above the Throne. He covers the night with the day, [another night] chasing it rapidly; and [He created] the sun, the moon, and the stars, subjected by His command. Unquestionably, His is the creation and the command; blessed is Allah , Lord of the worlds.

Why Bible says earth is flat and has 4 corners
