Is The Earth Flat – Quran and Science

Is The Earth Flat in Quran

  • The Qur’an, the central religious text of Islam, does not specifically state that the Earth is flat. In fact, the Qur’an contains several verses that suggest a belief in a spherical Earth. For example, the Qur’an states that the Earth is spherical looks like “round, It also describes the Earth as having “upright mountains” that help keep it stable, and it mentions the rising and setting of the Sun and the Moon, which are consistent with a spherical Earth.

📖Quran 79:30
And after that He spread the earth.

FootnoteThe Arabic verb daḥa also suggests that the earth is egg-shaped. The noun form diḥya is still used in some Arab dialects to mean an egg. Based on 2:29, 41:9-12, and 79:27-33, Allah ordained both realms, then formed the earth and created its provisions, then formed the heaven into seven heavens—all in six ˹heavenly˺ Days. See footnote for 7:54.

📖Quran 31:29
Did you not see that Allah makes the night enter into the day, and makes the day enter into the night, and He has subjugated the sun and the moon, each running towards an appointed time, and that Allah is fully aware of what you do?

📖Quran 39:5
He created the heavens and the earth for a purpose. He wraps the night around the day, and wraps the day around the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon, each orbiting for an appointed term. He is truly the Almighty, Most Forgiving.

It’s important to note that the Qur’an is not a scientific text and its primary purpose is to provide guidance for believers in their spiritual and moral lives. It’s also important to recognize that the understanding of science and the natural world has evolved over time, and that many of the scientific concepts we take for granted today were not fully understood or accepted in the past.
