Also in Main Section #2, Sub-Section (A), below, you'll find how the Glorious Quran declares that the earth is:

1- Spherical.
2- Suspended in Space.
3- Rotating around itself. (emphasis on dahaha and its derivatives)
4- Is traveling in Space.

5- Also, all celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits) in space.  The countless orbits in the Universe, and the day-layer reveals the sun's brightness.  This video is about Noble Verses 32:5, 34:2, 57:4, 70:3-4 and others, and the Arabic words عرج , عروج , معارج  and  معراج  that all refer to "going in an orbital and curvy path" in the Glorious Quran and our Islamic Texts.

  
Also, ample proofs for several of the Glorious Quran's Arabic words' definitions, from my Arabic-English and English-Arabic dictionaries, that prove that the earth is indeed spherical, rotating around its axle, and is suspended in space, are provided in the following important link:

If the Noble Quran says the earth is "egg-shaped" through a Notion, then why couldn't Prophet Muhammad just say it clear in plain Arabic?

The sections of this article are:

1-  Prophet Muhammad's knowledge VS the Noble Quran's Claims.
2-  So why didn't the Arabs and the Prophet understand dahaha as "egg-shaped" 1,500 years ago?

     (a)-  Ample vocabularies from my dictionaries regarding "Daha" and its circular shape and activities.


3-  Egg-shaped are the earth's orbit and physical shape! (Scientific proofs)

     (a)- The earth's orbit around the sun is shaped like an egg (elliptical).
    
(b)-  The earth bulged before collision to be an EGG-SHAPED, and as it rotates around its own axle, it also resembles an egg-shape.
     (c)- The earth is shaped like an egg.

1-  Prophet Muhammad's knowledge VS the Noble Quran's Claims:

The Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

With this said, let me now lay down the foundation to make the Truth of Islam be clearly known by Allah Almighty's Grace and Will.  It is important to know the following:

(a)-  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, did not know everything.  Allah Almighty clearly said so in the Noble Quran:

"And they ask you (O Muhammad SAW) concerning the Rooh (the Spirit); Say: "The Rooh (the Spirit): it is one of the things, the knowledge of which is only with my Lord. And of knowledge, you (mankind) have been given only a little. (The Noble Quran, 17:85)"

Since the Prophet of Islam only knew little, especially from the unseen, and since he never said that the earth is egg-shaped or spherical, then it is quite clear that he did not know that the earth was indeed egg-shaped.

(b)-  Allah Almighty in the Noble Quran did say that the earth is egg-shaped (dahaha), and that He sent down iron to it:

Noble Verse(s) 79:30
Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

79:30 والارض بعد ذلك دحاها

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[079:030]  He made the earth egg-shaped.

  

Noble Verse(s) 57:25
Arabic (Read from right to left.  Also, all png image files: [1] [2]):

57:25 لقد ارسلنا رسلنا بالبينات وانزلنا معهم الكتاب والميزان ليقوم الناس بالقسط وانزلنا الحديد فيه باس شديد ومنافع للناس وليعلم الله من ينصره ورسله بالغيب ان الله قوي عزيز

Khalifa: (why is he here?)

[057:025]  We sent our messengers supported by clear proofs, and we sent down to them the scripture and the law, that the people may uphold justice. And we sent down the iron, wherein there is strength, and many benefits for the people. All this in order for GOD to distinguish those who would support Him and His messengers, on faith. GOD is Powerful, Almighty.

Also, in the following video, we'll see that due to the tidal gravitational pulls, the earth bulged and became EGG-SHAPED before its impact with the iron-rich asteroid that was sent down to it, and collided with it and formed our earth's iron core.  This video demonstrates that even the tidal gravitational pulls do also contribute to the shaping of our earth today, since it is egg-shaped:

 

Also, see below for ample proofs from Arabic.

  

  

2-  So why didn't the Arabs and the Prophet understand dahaha as "egg-shaped" 1,500 years ago?

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said the following Hadith (saying):

Narrated Abu Huraira: "I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "I have been sent with Jawami al-Kalim (i.e., the shortest expression carrying the widest meanings), and I was made victorious with awe (caste into the hearts of the enemy), and while I was sleeping, the keys of the treasures of the earth were brought to me and were put in my hand." Muhammad said, Jawami'-al-Kalim means that Allah expresses in one or two statements or thereabouts the numerous matters that used to be written in the books revealed before (the coming of) the Prophet.  (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Interpretation of Dreams, Volume 9, Book 87, Number 141)"

As we clearly see, the Prophet said that he was sent to reveal pithy words that encompass many meanings and topics, which are short in quantity and rich in meanings and interpretations.  The Arabic word dahaha in Noble Verse 79:30 above did have multiple meanings and uses.  One of them was when one refers to an egg (see the proofs in Arabic here).  Another was when referring to making something extended, spread out, stretched and/or expanded.  This is an example of how Allah Almighty uses scientific notions in the Noble Quran when He talked about how He created certain things.  He gave words that had multiple meanings and interpretations to them to make the Noble Quran truly be for all times and all places, and to enable it to truly be the Everlasting and Never Ending Divine Miracle that will always prove the Prophethood of Muhammad, peace be upon him.

 

Imagine the direct claim about the earth being egg-shaped!

While even though Allah Almighty clearly said in Noble Verse 79:30 that the earth is egg-shaped, but let us further explore what would've happened if Allah Almighty Willed for Prophet Muhammad to have the knowledge about the earth and to spell it out more clearly in Arabic to his followers 1,500 years ago:

1-  First of all, it is important to know that the Prophet of Islam was already viewed as a mad man by many.  Even his companions had doubts about him especially when they had to endure all of the pain and sacrifice that they had to go through from losing their wealth, family and everything they had in life for the Message that he brought to them.  It was a natural inclination for them to doubt him and to have serious second thoughts about him:

"Say (to them O Muhammad SAW): "I exhort you on one (thing) only: that you stand up for Allahs sake in pairs and singly, and reflect (within yourselves the life history of the Prophet SAW): there is no madness in your companion (Muhammad SAW), he is only a warner to you in face of a severe torment."  (The Noble Quran, 34:46)"

"And (O people) your companion (Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) is not a madman;  (The Noble Quran, 81:22)"
 

2-  Let's us suppose that the following claims were made by the Prophet:

i-  The earth is egg-shaped.

ii-  We are not standing on top of the earth (north pole), but rather we are standing on the SIDE OF THE EARTH, and right underneath our feet there are people who are living and standing on the opposite side of the planet!  And we are too living under their feet on the opposite side of the world.

Just imagine how the bedouins would've taken this message who already had serious doubts about the Prophet and thought that he was a mad man.  Imagine how CRAZY the Prophet of Islam would've really sounded to them!  That is why Allah Almighty, by His Divine Wisdom and Mercy, chose to speak in the language of notions so that the right interpretation would slowly and surely be discovered by man as man keeps developing in knowledge and technology.  Dahaha back then meant expanded, which is also scientifically true. (See proof)  Look at how the continents of the earth are shaped like.  They look like they've been one round and all-connected piece of land in the past and then slowly spread out and split into the continents that we have today due to an expansion of the earth from its sides.  Please visit: http://www.expanding-earth.org/ for more details.  You can also visit my article at: http://www.answering-christianity.com/earth_in_islam.htm for more Noble Verses on the expansion of the earth.

The bringing forth of the earth's waters (oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, etc...) after the expansion of the planet earth.
A new scientific video, from a Western scientist, confirms the stunning Scientific Miracle in Noble Verses 79:30-32 regarding Allah Almighty bringing forth the waters (oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, etc...) after He expanded the earth.  Scientists have proven that our planet earth, indeed, was at one point all covered with land with shallow and limited bodies of water.  The vast bodies of water that we have today, where water today covers more than 70% of the entire globe, happened after the expansion of the earth -- precisely as Allah Almighty mentioned in the Noble Quran.  Scientists have only recently confirmed it!

And today since we also know that the earth is egg-shaped and dahaha does also mean that in Arabic (See detailed proof), then the real hidden meanings of the Word had been more and more revealed to us, and only Allah Almighty Knows what more interpretations we'll have in the future.

Daha دحا means:

دحا   (daha):  دفعه و رمى به (dafa'aahu wa ramaa bih) Caused it to move, pushed it, or threw it.

  • ويقذفون من كل جانب دحورا ولهم عذاب واصب  (The Noble Quran, 37:8-9)   And they're cast away from every side, repulsed, for they are under a perpetual penalty.
     
  • دحا الصبي المِدحاةَََ أي دفع الصبي المِدحاةَََ   Daha the boy the rolling toy, means the boy pushed the rolling toy.
     
  • دحرجَ  (dahraja):  to roll, roll along, to roll down.
      
     
  • Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said:
    Noble Verse(s) 84:6
    Yusuf Ali:

    [084:006]  O thou man! Verily thou art ever toiling (i.e., advancing) on towards thy Lord- painfully toiling,- but thou shalt meet Him.

    Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

    [084:006]  Oh man! Indeed, you are steadily advancing towards your Lord. You shall meet Him!

    Transliteration:

    [084:006]  Ya ayyuha al-insanu innaka kadihun ila rabbika kadhan famulaqeehi

    Arabic (from right to left):

    84:6 ياايها الانسان انك كادح الى ربك كدحا فملاقيه

     كادح and كدحا are derived from دحا, and they mean to move!  O man, you are moving - you are advancing - towards your LORD.

       

  • دحا   (daha):  و في حديث أبي رافع: كنت أُلاعب الحسن و الحسين, رضوان الله عليهما, بالمداحي, هي احجار أمثال القِرصة 

    In the Hadith of Abi Rafiaa':  I used to play with Al-Hasan and Al-Hussein, may Allah Almighty be pleased with them, with AL-MADAAHI, which means STONES that look like AL-QIRASAH.

    دحا   (daha):  المداحي هي احجار أمثال القِرصة   Al-madaahi are stones that resemble AL-QIRASAH.


    So what does Al-Qirasah mean?

    According to Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1], Book 4, Page 516

  • القِرصة (al-qirasah):  قرِّصي العجين أي سوِّيه قِرصة  Cut the dough into small round pieces.

    دحا   (daha):  الدّواح أي العظيم الشديد العلو   al-dawwah is something that is great, extremely powerful, and exalted.

    دحا   (daha):  الدِّحْية هو رئيس الجُند, و به سمِّي دِحية الكلبي   Al-dihya is the leader of the soldiers, and from this was named Dihya Al-Kalbay, who was one of Prophet Muhammad's close Companions.

  • الدِّحْية هو رئيس القوم و سيدهم  Al-dihya is the chief of the tribe or the group and the BEST AMONG THEM و سيدهم.
     
    Planet earth is indeed the best planet in our Solar System.  It is the only planet that has water, life and Paradise-like Scenic Views.  The others are dead planets with no life like that of earth's exists on them.  See my notes about this below.
  •  

    دحا   (daha):   ROUND and SPHERICAL:

  • إندحَّ بطنه إندحاحاّ اي إتّسع  His tummy became round and bigger.
     
  • In Prophet Muhammad's Hadith: كان لأسامة بطننٌ مُندحٌ اي متسع   Osama had a round and big tummy.
     
  • و بطنٌ مُنداحُ أي خارخٌ مُدوّر  His tummy is mun-daahun means it is OUT THERE AND ROUND مُدوّر.
     
  • و رجلٌّ دحدحُ اي قصير غليظ البطن    A man is dahda-hun which means he is short, stocky and has a big and fat tummy.
     
  • الدحداح هو المستدير الململم    The dahdaah is the person who is ROUND and STOCKY.
     
  • الدِردِحة من النساء التي طولها و عرضها سواء  Al-dir-dihati from the women is the one whose height and width look the same!  SHE LOOKS ROUND, and the by the way, the distance between the earth's north and south poles is approximately only 45 miles shorter than the earth's width.
  •  
    دحا   (daha): الدوحة أي المظلة العظيمة  Al-Doha, as in Qatar's capital,  means a big umbrella

  • Allah Almighty also Said that He made the earth's sky a ceiling to us
     
    Noble Verse(s) 21:32
    Arabic (from right to left):

    21:32 وجعلنا السماء سقفا محفوظا وهم عن اياتها معرضون

     

    Noble Verse(s) 52:5
    Arabic (from right to left):

    52:5 والسقف المرفوع

     For more proofs, please visit: The Ozone layer is a protective ceiling to earth.  So when Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 79:30-79:31
    Yusuf Ali:

    [079:030]  And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide expanse);

    [079:031]  He draweth out therefrom its moisture and its pasture;

    Arabic (from right to left):

    79:30 والارض بعد ذلك دحاها

    79:31 اخرج منها ماءها ومرعاها

    It also means that Allah Almighty Made a protective ceiling or umbrella for the earth, which without it, NO WATER COULD POSSIBLY EXIST ON EARTH!

  •  

     

    So based on all of these meanings, what do we find?  We find that:

    1-  The earth is a moving object that was pushed or thrown by Allah Almighty into space.

    2-  The earth is a qurs and indahhat and is dihdaaha, which means it is a round and a spherical object.

    3-  The earth has expanded, and from that expansion, all of the huge bodies of water that we have today from oceans, seas, lakes and rivers were extracted AND/OR FORMED from the earth with the aid of its protective atmosphere.

    4-  The earth is mad-hooha ( مدحوحا ), which is balanded and evened.

    5-  The earth is dihya, which means it is the best among its group.  This is true since all of the planets in our solar system are pretty much similar to our moon.  They are lifeless and have no life and no water in them.  Earth, on the other hand, has (1) ample water, which is why it is called the BLUE PLANET, (2) ample life, and even (3) Paradise-like views and nature in places such as Hawaii, Alaska, the Carribeans, places in Europe, Asia, Africa etc...

    6-  The earth is also dahdah and dahdaah, which means it is round and compressed.

    7-  The earth has a protective umbrella and ceiling above it.

    All of this perfectly fits our planet earth!  And even if we just take the EXPANDED interpretation alone and leave out the rest, then Noble Verses 79:30-31 are still quite Miraculous because, indeed the waters that we have today all came to existence in such a large and massive quantity ONLY AFTER THE EARTH BEGAN TO EXPAND with of course the aid of our protective atmosphere; all working together.

     

     

     

    Other Noble Verses that say the earth is moving and suspended in space:

    Noble Verse(s) 77:20-77:30
    Yusuf Ali:

    [077:025]  Have We not made the earth (as a place) to draw together (moving fast in space and is encompassing to all of its creatures and it has the ability to create and recreate).

    [077:026]  The living and the dead,

    [077:027]  And made therein mountains standing firm, lofty (in stature); and provided for you water sweet (and wholesome)?

    Transliteration:

    [077:025]  Alam najAAali al-arda kifata

    [077:026]  Ahyaan waamwatan

    [077:027]  WajaAAalna feeha rawasiya shamikhatin waasqaynakum maan furatan

    Arabic (from right to left):

    77:25 الم نجعل الارض كفاتا

    77:26 احياء وامواتا

    77:27 وجعلنا فيها رواسي شامخات واسقيناكم ماء فراتا

    4.  Al-Mawrid dictionary Arabic-English section [4], Page .

    5.  Arabic-English dictionary the Hans Wehr dictionary [6], Page .

    كفاتا (kifaata):  الكفت (al-kaft), which means  صَرْفََكَ الشئ عن وجهه  when you push something to a different direction.    

    كفاتا (kifaata):  ينكفت أي ينصرف  yankafit which means to go away.

  • In the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him:
     
    صلاة الأوّابين ما بين أن يَنْكَفِتَ أهل المغرب  The prayer of the awwabeen is when those who did the evening prayer go home.
     
     يَنْكَفِتَ أهل المغرب أي ينصرفوا إلى منازلهم   yankafitu ahl almaghrib means when they go to their homes.

  • ألإنكفات (al-inkifaat):   الإنصراف  going away, leaving.

    كفاتا (kifaata):  أسرع في العدو و الطيران  speeded in running and flying.

    كَفْتٌ (kaftun):  سريع  fast.

    كفيت (kafeet):  سريع خفيف دقيق  fast, light and precise.

    كفات (kifaat):  يضم و يقبض  contains and holds on to.

    الكفيت (al-kafeet):  القوة على النكاح, القوة على الجماع  strength for marriage and the strength to have intercourse or to fertilize, or to make life.

  • And in Prophet Muhammad's Hadith:  أتاني جبريل بقدْرٍ يقال لها الكفيت, فوجدت قوة أربعين رجلاً في الجماع  The Angel Gabriel put into me the al-kafeet, and I found in it the strength of 40 men in sexual intercourse.
     
  • Allah Almighty did say: "And We send the fertilizing winds, then cause the rain to descend from the sky...(The Noble Quran, 15:22)"
     
  • Allah Almighty also Said: "He causes the living to emerge from the dead, and brings the dead out of the living...(The Noble Quran, 30:19)"
  •  
    Indeed, the earth:

    1-  Is running in space.

    2-  Is rotating around its own axle.

    3-  Has the means to create life and/or to have life fertilized and multipled in it.

    4-  And it does CONTAIN its creatures and it does maintain their life and means of living for them.

    5-  Notice how in Noble Verse 77:26, it says:

    77:26 احياء وامواتا   The living and the dead.

    Indeed, the earth is encompassing to both the dead and the living, and it does create the living and recreates the dead, all through Allah Almighty's Divine Will, Mercy, Design and Wisdom.

    That is why I translated kifaata in Noble Verse 77:26 to: moving fast in space and is encompassing to all of its creatures and it has the ability to create and recreate.  The word encompasses all of these meanings, and all of them PERFECTLY FIT the description of earth!

     

     

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 30:25
    Yusuf Ali:

    [030:025]  And among His Signs is this, that heaven and earth stand (move in their fixed courses) by His Command: then when He calls you, by a single call, from the earth, behold, ye (straightway) come forth.

    Transliteration:

    [030:025]  Wamin ayatihi an taqooma alssamao waal-ardu bi-amrihi thumma itha daAAakum daAAwatan mina al-ardi itha antum takhrujoona

    Arabic (from right to left):

    30:25 ومن اياته ان تقوم السماء والارض بامره ثم اذا دعاكم دعوة من الارض اذا انتم تخرجون

    In Noble Verse 30:25, the Arabic word تقوم stand, has the following meanings.  According to:

    1.  Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1] , Book 7, Pages 455-465.

    2.  Al-Muheet dictionary [2], Page .

    3.  Al-Muajam Al-Waseet dictionary [3], Page.

    4.  Al-Mawrid dictionary Arabic-English section [4], Page .

    5.  Arabic-English dictionary the Hans Wehr dictionary [6], Page .

    تقوم (taqoom):  is derived from قيام (qiyam), which means الهِمّة إلى شيئ (al-himmah ila shaya'), which means moving firmly towards something.

  • ياايها الذين امنوا اذا قمتم الى الصلاة (The Noble Quran, 5:6)   أي إذا هممتم بالصلاة و توجهتم إليها  means when you firmly get up and go to Prayer.
     
  • تقوم (taqoom):  قائم أي إعتدل  Qa'em which means became balanced  إعتدل.

    تقوم (taqoom):  استقاموا (istaqaamu):  executed the commands firmly:

  • ان الذين قالوا ربنا الله ثم استقاموا تتنزل عليهم الملائكة  (The Noble Quran, 41:30)  means معنى قوله استقاموا اي عملوا بطاعته ولزموا سنّة نبيِّه  the meaning of His, the Almighty, Saying ISTAQAAMU means they firmly executed His Will and Commands and followed the Ways of His Prophet.
     
  • فاستقيموا اليه  (The Noble Quran, 41:6)  أي في التوجه إليه  means head towards him, Allah Almighty.  Of course, by going to the Mosque to Pray, by paying Charity, by to going to Mecca for pilgrimage, etc...
  • قام Qaama:  to get up, to perform, do, carry out, execute, practice, exercise, run.


    Now it is also mentioned in Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1], Book 7, Page 456:

    القيام (al-qiyaam): means  الوقوف و الثبات which means standing and remaining still.

    My simple response to this is the following:

    1-  Yes indeed, the planet earth is standing still according to our bodies and it is indeed balanced!  Otherwise, we would all perish!

    2-  But however, since it was a known fact that the celestial bodies in Heaven such as the SUN, MOON, SHOOTING STARS and others were all moving bodies, then it is obviously safe to also accept this meaning about the earth also moving to apply to Noble Verse 30:25, especially when we already know that the earth was mentioned to be ROUND and WAS PUSHED and THROWN INTO SPACE, as I already thoroughly demonstrated earlier (above) in the word DAHAHA.

    So it is safe to accept the word taqoom تقوم in Noble Verse 30:25 to mean both FIXED IN THEIR MOVING COURSES, and for the earth to be standing still AND BALANCED for the creatures that live on it for the following reasons:

    1-  The earth and heaven were mentioned together in the same Noble Verse.

    2-  We know that the Heaven is full of curvy and wavy orbits as I discussed in ARJOON AND MA'AARIJ earlier (above).

    3-  We know that the earth is round and is pushed and thrown in space by Allah Almighty as I discussed in DAHAHA earlier (above).

    4-  As to the earth being standing still, obviously, to us, it is standing still and it is BALANCED!  Otherwise, we would all perish!  More on this when we discuss the function of the mountains in the Noble Quran and how they prevent the earth from swaying while it is rotating around its own axle, in the Noble Quran.

     

    (The following Noble Verse was suggested to me by brother Mahir, may Allah Almighty always be pleased with him)

    Furthermore, we read in Noble Verse 55:10:

    Noble Verse(s) 55:10
    Yusuf Ali:

    [055:010]  It is He Who has spread out (set) the earth (on a moving course) for (His) creatures:

    Transliteration:

    [055:010]  Waal-arda wadaAAaha lil-anami

    Arabic (from right to left):

    55:10 والارض وضعها للانام

    Abdullah Yusuf Ali here translated the word wadaa' وَضَعَ as "spread out".  But however, Abdullah Yusuf Ali and all of the English translators of the Noble Quran that I've listed at www.QuranSearch.com, with the exception of one, have translated the very same exact word, wadaa' وَضَعَ, as something that is moving , "hurrying to" , in the Noble Verse 9:47:

    Noble Verse(s) 9:47
    Yusuf Ali:

    [009:047]  If they had come out with you, they would not have added to your (strength) but only (made for) disorder, hurrying to and fro in your midst and sowing sedition among you, and there would have been some among you who would have listened to them. But God knoweth well those who do wrong.

    Transliteration:

    [009:047]  Law kharajoo feekum ma zadookum illa khabalan walaawadaAAoo khilalakum yabghoonakumu alfitnata wafeekum sammaAAoona lahum waAllahu AAaleemun bialththalimeena

    Arabic (from right to left):

    9:47 لو خرجوا فيكم مازادوكم الا خبالا ولاوضعوا خلالكم يبغونكم الفتنة وفيكم سماعون لهم والله عليم بالظالمين

    Sher Ali:

    [009:047]  Had they gone forth with you, they would have added to you naught but trouble, and would have hurried to and fro in your midst, seeking to sow discord among you. And there are among you those who would listen to you so as to convey information to them. And ALLAH well knows the wrongdoers.

    Shakir:

    [009:047]  Had they gone forth with you, they would not have added to you aught save corruption, and they would certainly have hurried about among you seeking (to sow) dissension among you, and among you there are those who hearken for their sake; and Allah knows the unjust.

    Pickthall:

    [009:047]  Had they gone forth among you they had added to you naught save trouble and had hurried to and fro among you, seeking to cause sedition among you; and among you there are some who would have listened to them. Allah is Aware of evil- doers.

    Sale:

    [009:047]  If they had gone forth with you, they had only been a burden unto you, and had run to and fro between you, stirring you up to sedition; and there would have been some among you, who would have given ear unto them: An God knoweth the wicked.

    Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

    [009:047]  Had they marched out with you, they would have added to you nothing except disorder, and they would have hurried about in your midst (spreading corruption) and sowing sedition among you, and there are some among you who would have listened to them. And Allah is the All-Knower of the Zalimoon (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc.).

    Palmer:

    [009:047]  Had they gone forth with you they would but have made you more trouble, and they would have hurried about amongst you craving a sedition; amongst you are some who would have listened to them; but God knows those who are unjust!

    Arberry:

    [009:047]  Had they gone forth among you, they would only have increased you in trouble, and run to and fro in your midst, seeking to stir up sedition between you; and some of you would listen to them; and God knows the evildoers.

    Rodwell:

    [009:047]  Had they taken the field with you, they would only have added a burden to you, and have hurried about among you, stirring you up to sedition; and some there are among you who would have listened to them: and God knoweth the evil doers.

    So indeed, It is He Who has set the earth on a moving course for (His) creatures.

    55:10 والارض وضعها للانام

    وَضَعَ wada'aa:  يقال: وضع الشئ من يده يضعه وضعاً إذا ألقاه   it is said: WADA'AA the thing from his hand, which means he threw it!

    وَضَعَ wada'aa:  الإيضاع هو السير  Al-idaa'aa is walking.

    الإيضاع  (al-idaa'aa): Also means  يحمله  to carry him.

  • و في الحديث: أنه, صلى الله عليه و سلم, أفاض من عرفة و عليه السكينة و أوضع في وادي محسر, قال أبو عبيد: ألإيضاع سيرٌ مثل الخبب
     
    And in the Hadith:  Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, came down from mount Arafah, and he had calmness on him.  And then the Prophet AWDA'AA (began to jog) أوضع in the vallley of mahsar.  Abu Ubaida said: الإيضاع  (al-idaa'aa) is the walking in a form of khabab (jogging [6], page 224).
                    
  • وَضَعَ wada'aa:   المُوضِع أي المسرع فيها  the mudi'aa is the one who is SPEEDING.

    وَضَعَ wada'aa:   يضع وضعاً أي عدا و أسرع   yada'o wadaan means ran and speeded.

    وَضَعَ wada'aa:  أسرع  increased his speed.

    So as we clearly and indesputably see, وَضَعَ wada'aa clearly refers to an action.  This action has to do with: (1) Carrying, (2) Speeding, and (3) Walking.

    All of this perfectly fits our planet earth!   Yes indeed, ‏55:10 والارض وضعها للانام  It is He Who has set the earth on a moving course for (His) creatures.

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 55:7
    Yusuf Ali:

    [055:007]  And the Firmament has He raised high (raised it on a moving course) , and He has set up the Balance (in it) (of Justice),

    Arabic (from right to left):

    55:7 والسماء رفعها ووضع الميزان

    Notice again how  وَضَعَ wada'aa is referring to the balance of the orbital systems in the Universe.  Here, this Noble Verse is referring to the gravitational balance that keeps the orbits of the Galaxies, their Solar Systems, their Planets and their Moon's in place, and not falling into a massive disarray and out of order and colliding with each others on a large and massive scale! 

    If we examine, for instance, our beautiful Solar System's orbital system and the balance of its planets and their moon's around our star, the sun, and around each others (the moons orbiting around their own planets), then we'll see the beautiful and powerful BALANCE that Allah Almighty has put to keep us SAFE!  Otherwise, our moon would've probably been the first planet to collide with us.  Notice again how وَضَعَ wada'aa here perfectly describes that balance in our MOVING UNIVERSE!  So it's the Balance in the Moving Celestial Bodies' orbits, and in their Solar Systems' Orbits, and in their Galaxies' Orbits and so on.

    As to رفعها (rafa'aaha) in the same Noble Verse (55:7), according to

    1.  Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1] , Book 5, Page119.

    2.  Al-Muheet dictionary [2], Page 666.

    3.  Al-Muajam Al-Waseet dictionary [3], Page 360.

    4.  Al-Mawrid dictionary Arabic-English section [4], Page 590.

    5.  Arabic-English dictionary the Hans Wehr dictionary [6], Page 349.

    رفع (rafa'aa):  الرَّفْعْ (al-raf'aa), which means  السّير  (al-sayr) walking, moving.

  • It is said:  إذا ارتفع البعير عن الهملجة فذالك السير المرفوع  which means:  When the mule irtafa'aa from his idol position, then it means that he has began to walk or do some walking السير.
     
  • المرفوع (al-marfoo'aa):  ارفع السير  he increased the speed of the walking.

    رفع (rafa'aa): رَفَّعَ الحمار  raffa'aa the donkey, which means  عدا عدواً بعضه أرفع من بعض ran a series of steps which some of them are faster than the others.

  • عدا (aadaa): to run, speed, gallop, race, to pass, go past ([6], page 598)
     
  • رفع (rafa'aa):  Advancing forward.

  • It is said: و كل ما قدّمْتهُ, فقد رفّعْتَهُ  Everything you advance or put forth, you raffa'aatahu.  
  • رفع (rafa'aa):  Increase the speed.

  • In the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him:  فرفعت ناقتي أي المرفوع من السير  Fa-Rafa'aa'tu my camel means caused it to increase the speed of its walk.
     
  • يرفع (yarfa'aa): to walk a fixed path.

  • It is said: و رفع البعير في السير يرفع, فهو رافعٌ أي بالغ و سار ذالك السير  and the mule increased رفع  its walking speed of its fixed path يرفع .... 
     
  • And the meaning for يرفع is  سار ذالك السير  continued walking down that path.
  • رفع منه (rafa'aa minhu):  ساره (saarahu) led him down the path.

    رفع (rafa'aa):  Going in circular motions:

  • رافعني و خافضني  means  داورني كل مداورة  Caused me to go in circular motions with him. I believe this is referring to a circular motion in a real sword fight.
  • رفع (rafa'aa):  hoist up, to raise, run up, to take off, deliver, to start, initiate, pass, to boost.


    So clearly, Allah Almighty Said that He has set the Universe on a moving course, and He has put the Balance in it.

     

     

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 27:88
    Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

    [027:088]  And you will see the mountains and think them solid, but they shall pass away as the passing away of the clouds. The Work of Allah, Who perfected all things, verily! He is Well-Acquainted with what you do.

    Khalifa: (why is he here?)

    [027:088]  When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of GOD, who perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

    Rodwell:

    [027:088]  And thou shalt see the mountains, which thou thinkest so firm, pass away with the passing of a cloud! 'Tis the work of God, who ordereth all things! of all that ye do is He well aware.

    Khalifa: (why is he here?)

    [027:088]  When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of GOD, who perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

    Rodwell:

    [027:088]  And thou shalt see the mountains, which thou thinkest so firm, pass away with the passing of a cloud! 'Tis the work of God, who ordereth all things! of all that ye do is He well aware.

    Palmer:

    [027:088]  And thou shalt see the mountains, which thou dost deem solid, pass away like the passing of the clouds;- the work of God who orders all things; verily, He is well aware of what ye do!

    Arberry:

    [027:088]  and thou shalt see the mountains, that thou supposest fixed, passing by like clouds -- God's handiwork, who has created everything very well. He is aware of the things you do.

    Transliteration:

    [027:088]  Watara aljibala tahsabuha jamidatan wahiya tamurru marra alssahabi sunAAa Allahi allathee atqana kulla shay-in innahu khabeerun bima tafAAaloona

    Arabic (from right to left):

    27:88 وترى الجبال تحسبها جامدة وهي تمر مر السحاب صنع الله الذي اتقن كل شئ انه خبير بما تفعلون

    تمر means it is passing, and مر  means like the passing of as the English translations amply proved.  This is further proven in Noble Verse 37:137:

    Noble Verse(s) 37:137
    Yusuf Ali:

    [037:137]  Verily, ye pass by their (sites), by day-

    Dr. Munir Munshey (one of www.answering-christianity.com's authors):

    [037:137]  In fact, you do pass by their ruins during the day,

    Transliteration:

    [037:137]  Wa-innakum latamurroona AAalayhim musbiheena

    Arabic (from right to left):

    37:137 وانكم لتمرون عليهم مصبحين

    Sher Ali:

    [037:137]  And, surely, you pass by them in the morning,

    Shakir:

    [037:137]  And most surely you pass by them in the morning,

    Pickthall:

    [037:137]  And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the morning

    Sale:

    [037:137]  And ye, O people of Mecca, pass by the places where they once dwelt, as ye journey in the morning,

    Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

    [037:137]  Verily, you pass by them in the morning.

    Palmer:

    [037:137]  verily, ye pass by them in the morning

    Arberry:

    [037:137]  and you pass by them in the morning

    Khalifa: (why is he here?)

    [037:137]  You still pass by their ruins by day.

    Rodwell:

    [037:137]  And ye indeed pass by their ruined dwellings at morn

    So why would Allah Almighty say that the mountains are moving like the clouds? 

    We know that the mountains look quite fixed.  Not even earth quakes can move them from their places!  So why would Allah Almighty say that they are passing like the passing of the clouds?

    1-  Because like in Dahaha دحاها and wadaAAha وضعها, which both mean that the earth is moving on a fixed course, tamurru marra تمر مر, further supports this by saying that even the heavy and fixed mountains that look idol and impossible to move, and indeed moving!

    2-  Like in  Dahaha دحاها , where it means to expand, the expansion of the earth did indeed cause, and is still causing, for the mountains to move!  Not only mountains, but ENTIRE CONTINENTS moving or drifting away from each others as the earth started to split when it expanded.  Remember that the earth used to be one jigsaw puzzle and then started to expand.

     

     

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 78:6
    Yusuf Ali:

    [078:006]  Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse (rocking cradle),

    Transliteration:

    [078:006]  Alam najAAali al-arda mihadan

    Arabic (from right to left):

    78:6 الم نجعل الارض مهادا

     Abdullah Yusuf Ali have translated مهادا mihaada to mean "a wide expanse".  However, in the following Noble Verses, he translated the root word for مهادا mihaada to mean "cradle":

    Noble Verse(s) 19:29
    Yusuf Ali:

    [019:029]  But she pointed to the babe. They said: "How can we talk to one who is a child in the cradle?"

    Transliteration:

    [019:029]  Faasharat ilayhi qaloo kayfa nukallimu man kana fee almahdi sabiyyan

    Arabic (from right to left):

    19:29 فاشارت اليه قالوا كيف نكلم من كان في المهد صبيا

    Yet, in other Noble Verses, he translated the same exact word as "like carpet spread out":

    Noble Verse(s) 20:53
    Yusuf Ali:

    [020:053]  "He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky." With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.

    Transliteration:

    [020:053]  Allathee jaAAala lakumu al-arda mahdan wasalaka lakum feeha subulan waanzala mina alssama-i maan faakhrajna bihi azwajan min nabatin shatta

    Arabic (from right to left):

    20:53 الذي جعل لكم الارض مهدا وسلك لكم فيها سبلا وانزل من السماء ماء فاخرجنا به ازواجا من نبات شتى

    According to

    1.  Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1] , Book 2, Page 790.

    5.  Al-Mawrid dictionary English-Arabic section [4], Page 227.

    6.  Arabic-English dictionary the Hans Wehr dictionary [6], Page 928.

    Yes, مهد (mahd) does mean to spread out.  But it also means:

    مهد (mahd):   و مَهْدُ الصبي هو موضعه الذي يُهيّأ له و يُوَطّأ لينام فيه  the mahd of the baby is the place that is prepared for him, and is rocked back and forth  يُوطّأ  to put him to sleep.

    ممهّد (mumahhad):  Balanced in temperature:

  • و ماء ممهّد: لا حار و لا بارد  Water that is mumahhad means that the water is neither cold nor hot.  

  • مهد (mahd):  cradle.  It is said: من المهد إلى اللّحد  from cradle to grave.

    Cradle:

  • المهد: سرير الطفل الهزاز  the mahd: which is the baby's rocking bed.
     
  • الهزازة  the rocker or rocking.
     
  • يضع او يهزّ طفلاً في مهد  puts or rocks the baby in the mahd (cradle).
  • مهاد (mahaad):  bed.  

    Is the bed here a rocking bed or a fixed one?  The following pictures about the cosmos will clearly prove that the earth's axial tilt and rotation around the sun indeed resemble a rocking bed:

     

    Let us now look at our planet earth's "Axial Tilt" that makes it look like a cradle:

    So indeed, the earth being a مهاد (mihaad) does mean that it is like a rocking cradle, since its root, مهد (mahd), means just that.

    <more scientific details in text will be typed here, insha'Allah>

     

     

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said:

    Noble Verse(s) 35:41
    Yusuf Ali:

    [035:041]  It is God Who sustains the heavens and the earth, lest they cease (to function) (stray from their fixed paths and fall into complete destruction): and if they should fail stray, there is none - not one - can sustain them thereafter: Verily He is Most Forbearing, Oft-Forgiving.

    Transliteration:

    [035:041]  Inna Allaha yumsiku alssamawati waal-arda an tazoola wala-in zalata in amsakahuma min ahadin min baAAdihi innahu kana haleeman ghafooran

    Arabic (from right to left):

    35:41 ان الله يمسك السماوات والارض ان تزولا ولئن زالتا ان امسكهما من احد من بعده انه كان حليما غفورا

    Both Arabic words تزولا (tazoola) and زالتا (zaalata) are derived from the root word زول (zawl).  According to

    1.  Lisan Al-Arab dictionary [1] , Book 6, Page 407, 410-411.

    2.  Al-Muheet dictionary [2], Page .

    3.  Al-Muajam Al-Waseet dictionary [3], Page 407.

    5.  Al-Mawrid dictionary English-Arabic section [4], Page .

    6.  Arabic-English dictionary the Hans Wehr dictionary [6], Page .

    زول (zawl): الهلاك و البلاء (al-halaak wa al-balaa'aa)  utter destruction and scourge (skurj) and calamity.

    زال (zaala):  حاص و تنحى (haasa wa tanah-haa)  strayed and deserted its original place.

    زال (zaala):  تحول و إنقلب (tahawwala wa inqalaba)  shifted and became completely opposite from its original state.

    زيل (zayl):  جفلت نافرة (jafalat naafirah) took off in straying directions with much overwhelming fear and boggle.

    زيل (zayl):  الفُرْقَة (al-furqah) creating disunity and lack of control or management.  

  • " فزيلنا بينهم " (The Noble Quran, 10:28):  أي فرّقنى بينهم  We created disunity and divisions among them.
  • الزِيال (al-ziyaal):  الفُراقْ (al-furaaq) departing, leaving, disuniting.

    إيزال (izaal):  إذهاب الحركة و التصرّف  removing the ability of movement and control.

  • يقال: أزال الله زواله أي أذهب الله حركته و تصرّفه   it is said: azaala Allah zawalahu, which means Allah Almighty has removed his movement and control.  In other words, the person became paralized!
  • Indeed, if there was no balance in the gravitational pulls in the Universe, the earth and the Universe would've strayed away into complete disarray and total destruction.  It is indeed due to Allah Almighty's Mercy and Will that the earth's moving course in the Universe is under full control from Allah Almighty.
     

     

     

    1-  Proofs from Dr. Zaghlool Al-Naggar:

    The Arabic word "dahaha":

    Here is what Dr. Zaghlool Al-Naggar, one of the top seven Geologists in the World, said about the Arabic word in question:

    الدلالة اللغوية لدحو الأرض
    ‏(‏الدحو‏)‏ في اللغة العربية هو المد والبسط والإلقاء‏,‏ يقال‏:(‏ دحا‏)‏ الشيء‏(‏ يدحوه‏)(‏ دحوا‏)‏ أي بسطه ومده‏,‏ أو ألقاه ودحرجه‏,‏ ويقال‏:(‏ دحا‏)‏ المطر الحصي عن وجه الأرض أي دحرجه وجرفه‏,‏ ويقال‏:‏ مر الفرس‏(‏ يدحو‏)(‏ دحوا‏)‏ إذا جر يده علي وجه الأرض فيدحو ترابها و‏(‏مدحي‏)‏ النعامة هو موضع بيضها‏,‏ و‏(‏أدحيها‏)‏ موضعها الذي تفرخ فيه‏.‏

    (http://www.nooran.org/E/7.htm)

    My Translation:

    Linguistic evidence to the "dahu" (egg-shapping) of the Earth

    The "dahu" in the Arabic Language means to extend and even out.  It is said: "daha" the thing; "yad'hu dahwan".  These terms can mean he either evened out and extended it or he threw it and rolled it.  It is also said: "the rain daha the stones from the face of the earth," which means it rolled it and washed it away.  It is also said: "The horse passed by yad'hu dahwan," which means he is beating his foot on the ground and yad'hu its sand.  Also, the ostrich's mad'hi means its laying of its eggs, and "ad'hiha" is the nest where its chicks are born.

    End of translation.

    So as we clearly see, all of the above Arabic words that are derived from "daha" mean:

    1-  To extend.

    2-  To roll.

    3-  To even out.

    4-  Causing to become egg-shaped or creating, making or producing eggs (see the ostrich's mad'hi example above).

    All of these meanings perfectly apply to our planet Earth and the stages that it went through!

     

    2-  Proofs from my English-Arabic dictionary:

    Squat: Dahdah.

    Roll:

  • (motion): dahraja, tadahraj.
  • roll over: tadahraj.
  • (rotate): dahraj.
  • Roller: madhala.

    4-  The Libyans used Daha for Eggs:

    From http://aqaed.com/mostabser/shenasname/00-a/0083.html

    ذات يوم جاءني أحد الأصدقاء يحمل معه كتابا بعنوان :" la Bible le Coran et la science" لمؤلفه موريس بوكاي ، فقرأته في وقت قياسي ، لما لمست فيه من جدية في تناول الفكر الديني وعلاقته بالعلم ، فقد كان الرجل دقيقا في تحصيل المعاني الصحيحة للمصطلحات القرآنية ، وإيصالها كما هي إلى عقول قرائه.بينما أساء عدد من المترجمين المسلمين وغيرهم ترجمة تلك المصطلحات فلم تؤدي معناها المقصود ، بل كانت بعيدة كل البعد عن الحقيقة العلمية ، وهو ما حاول المؤلف أن يقرن به تلك المصطلحات، فصحح ترجمة "العلق" ودحو الأرض التي أساء ترجمتها غيره ، بما يتعارض والمدلول العلمي الذي أراده الله تعالى معنا اعجازيا في عصر يفتقد ابسط أبجديات العلوم التطبيقية والنظرية، ومن طريف القول أن موريس بوكاي لم يأنس لمعنى دحى الذي حاول البعض إقناعه به فسافر إلى البلاد العربية سعيا منه للوقوف على بعض آثار اللغة العربية التي كادت تندثر مع هجمة الأعداء عليها ، وتفريط أصحابها فيها. فوجد أن معنى دحى لا زال الليبيون يستعملونه في تسمية البيض ، فيطلقون على الواحدة دحية وهي مشتقة من دحى يدحو دحوا أي جعلها كالبيضة ، وبمعنى آخر فان الأرض ليست كروية الشكل بقدر ما هي بيضوية ، فلم يسبقه في هذا الخصوص مترجم غيره..

     

    My translation:

    One day, a friend came to me carrying a book titled "Coran et la Science la Bible le" for the author, Maurice Boukay. I read it with with setting a new time-record due to the seriousness that I saw in the theological thought and its relationship to science. The author was precise in gathering the correct meanings of the Quranic vocabularies and delivering them uncompromised to the brain of his reader, meanwhile a number of the Muslim and non-Muslim authors have adulterated the translations of these Words, and as a result the latter not only wasn't able to Their real intended meanings, but their translations were far from being anywhere close to the Scientific Truth of the Words. This is what the author tried to set straight; he corrected the meaning of "Alaq" and "Dahu Al-Ard" that other authors have mistranslated. Allah Almighty gave the scientific statements during an age that lacked the basics of the applicable and theoretical sciences. What's really applauding is that Maurice Baukay didn't settle for the meaning of Daha that was given to him - that which some have tried to convince him with it - so he set out and traveled to the Arabic countries seeking some of the archeologies of the Arabic language that was attacked by the enemies and he found that the meaning of "daha" is still used by the Libyans today in reference to the egg. They call one egg "dahia," which is derived from the root words Daha, Yadhu, Dahwa, which all mean that the object is made or has become like an egg. And in another meaning, the earth is not shaped like a ball, but rather like an egg, instead. And no translator has reached his results before him..

     

    5-  Further proofs from Arabic:

    Also, further proofs about the word Dahaha meaning to do a circular activity.  The following are very well-known Arabic words that are derived from "Dah":

    1-  Dahraja, means to roll down as in rolling down a rock from the top of the hill.

    2-  Tadahraja, means he physically rolled down, as in a person rolling his body down.

     

    6-  The Palestinian Dahraja dance!

    Article #1:

     

    " "Dahraja" a Palestinian Women Folk Dance.

    By: Nadya el-Butmeh.

     

     This article defines and describes “Dahraja", " Dahraja" is a dance performed by a group of women accompanied by group singing of some popular folksongs. Women, when performing this dance, stand in a closed circle and hold hands. They continuously alternate between moving in toward the center of the circle then back away from it.

    The specific steps in this rhythmic movement, however, vary according to the specific song accompanying the dance." (Source)
     

     

     

    3-  Egg-shaped are the earth's orbit and physical shape!

    Allah Almighty's Miraculous choice of choosing one Arabic word to talk about the earth's expansion from its sides and its physical egg-shape is truly amazing.  But the hidden Miracles of the word don't stop here.  Astronomers have also discovered that the earth's orbit around the sun is also shaped like an egg!

      

    The S-shaped moon orbit!

    This is not the only time Allah Almighty used a notion for astronomy.  In another Noble Verse, He described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

    Please visit: The moon's S-shaped orbit around earth is shaped like a branch of a date tree, mentioned in the Noble Quran and confirmed by Science!

      

    (a)-  The earth's orbit around the sun is shaped like an egg (elliptical):

    elliptical
    adjective
    1.  rounded like an egg [syn: egg-shaped

     

    Diagram of earth's elliptical orbit

    The elliptial orbits of the moon around the Earth and the Earth around the sun have a substantial effect on the Earth’s tides. Once a month, at perigee, when the moon is closest to the Earth, tide-generating forces are higher than usual, producing above average ranges in the tides. About two weeks later, at apogee, when the moon is farthest from the Earth, the lunar tide-raising force is smaller, and the tidal ranges are less than average. When the Earth is closest to the sun (perihelion), around January 2 of the calendar year, tidal ranges are enhanced. At aphelion, when the Earth is furthest from the sun, around July 2, tidal ranges are reduced (Sumich, J.L., 1996; Thurman, H.V., 1994).

    (b)-  The earth bulged before collision to be an EGG-SHAPED, and as it rotates around its own axle, it also resembles an egg-shape (see also section C, below):

    Again, in the following video, we'll see that due to the tidal gravitational pulls, the earth bulged and became EGG-SHAPED before its impact with the iron-rich asteroid that was sent down to it, and collided with it and formed our earth's iron core.  This video demonstrates that even the tidal gravitational pulls do also contribute to the shaping of our earth today, since it is egg-shaped:

     

      

    (c)-  The earth is shaped like an egg:

    (A statement from the United States of America's Department of Energy)

    Earth: Round or Egg-shaped

    Question:  Well, I was wondering about the Earth.  Well, I would like to know if 
    the Earth is really not round, but elliptical as some say.
    jason p brechin

    Answer: The Earth is not quite spherical, due to what is know as "rotational
    flattening." It's not egg-shaped, either, it's shaped more like a pumpkin. The
    radius of the Earth at the equator is 6,378 km; at the poles it is 6,356 km.
    Jupiter, which rotates once every 10 hours, is even much squashed than the
    Earth. Jupiter's equatorial radius is
    70,850 km; it's polar radius is 66,550 km.
    richard a gerber

    (http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/askasci/ast99/ast99162.htm)


    A statement from CNN:

    "MOOS: Though some of the charts in the science articles reminded us of the old Buttmaster ads. Forget the gluteus maximus, scientists say the Earth is shaped like a pumpkin, with the weight of the polar ice caps squishing the middle.

    But as the ice caps have melted, relieving some pressure, the Earth has been getting rounder, until now. Suddenly Earth's waistline is expanding."

    (http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0208/08/ltm.07.html)


    But many eggs do resemble pumpkins:

    Pumpkins:

     

    Chicken eggs:

    Round Turtle eggs:

    Pigeon eggs:

    Ostrich eggs:

     

    Snake eggs:

    Falcon eggs:

    Other eggs:

       


    Also, Allah Almighty didn't say "chicken egg", even though some chicken eggs are also spherical.  He Said egg-shaped, which didn't limit the shape of the earth to any specific animal-egg.  And like I said:

     

    All eggs vary in shapes, roundness and sizes!


    Also, the quote above "Suddenly Earth's waistline is expanding" further proves that the earth's shape is not fixed.  It is variant just like that of the eggs even when they're from the same animal!  The following articles demonstrate how the earth's shape is changing:

    http://rockyweb.cr.usgs.gov/outreach/histlandsat.html

    http://novan.com/earth.htm

     

    Interestingly, Allah Almighty also Said the following:

    1-  "Do they not see that We gradually reduce the land from its sides?  (The Noble Quran, 21:44)"  Please visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/reduction_of_earth.htm.

    2-  "By the returning atmosphere. By the fractured earth.  (The Noble Quran, 86:11-12)"  Please visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/faults_on_earth.htm.

    3-  "And He has set firm mountains in the earth so that it would not shake with you.  (The Noble Quran, 16:15)" and "Have We not made the earth as a bed, and the mountains as pegs?  (The Noble Quran, 78:6-7)Geologists did indeed confirm that mountains do prevent the earth from shaking while it's rotating around its own axle!  Please visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/mountains.htm.

      
      

    Eliminating the childish word games:

    The point here is not to play word and title games.  If the earth is either shaped like an egg (eggs do vary in shapes) or a pumpkin (pumpkins do also vary in shapes), this still wouldn't change anything.  In the images of the earth above, we clearly see the earth as egg-shaped.  One can also suggest that it also looks like a pumpkin.  The scientists are not GOD Almighty!  Their choice of the word pumpkin doesn't nullify Allah Almighty's choice of "egg", because the main point of Allah Almighty's use of the word dahaha (which means egg and many other things), even though eggs do vary in shapes and sizes and this was known to man 1,500 years ago, is that:

    1-  Unlike pumpkin in Arabic, dahaha had multiple meanings that perfectly matched up with describing the earth.

    2-  Allah Almighty talked about the earth's expansion.

    3-  Allah Almighty talked about the earth's shape being spherical and also at the same time not being quite perfect in its diameters.  Eggs are not perfect in their diameters nor are they all the same in shape as we clearly see above.  Therefore, Allah Almighty's word-choice is not contradicting with science.

    4-  It seems that Allah Almighty also meant to cover the earth's orbit around the sun which also happens to be shaped like an egg!

    So clearly and indisputably, Allah Almighty had a clear purpose and point for using this precise Noble Word and Notion to describe several things that define the earth, which were not known to man in the past.  Indeed all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone!  Allah Almighty Said:

    "We will soon show them Our signs in the Universe and INSIDE THEIR SELVES, until it will become quite clear to them that it is the truth. Is it not sufficient as regards your Lord that He is a witness over all things?  (The Noble Quran, 41:53)"

      

      

    4-  Conclusion:

    Again, the Noble Quran is filled with scientific statements and notions.  These are statements of Allah Almighty describing how He created things on earth and in the Universe.  What's most amazing is that all of these scientific statements and notions had been proven to be in perfect agreement with science and our modern-day scientific discoveries.  Allah Almighty made the Noble Quran be Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) Everlasting Divine Miracle and proof for Prophethood.  The Holy Book certainly stood the test of time 1,500 years ago with Its Claims, Prophecies and Miraculous language eloquence, and it does again and again in our day today with Its overwhelming agreement with science and discoveries that were not known to man 1,500 years ago.

    Allah Almighty clearly intended to mention several Miracles, through the single Word dahaha, to again and again prove to us that the more we learn and advance in knowledge and technology the more we'll discover the Noble Quran to be the True and Holy Word of GOD Almighty!

    Indeed, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty alone for making the Noble Quran be the Perfect and Everlasting Miracle, for us humans, out of all of His Divine Miracles!  And may Allah Almighty send His Peace, Mercy and Blessings upon our Beloved and Blessed Prophet, Teacher and Role Model, Muhammad.  Ameen.

    From http://www.answering-christianity.com/blog/index.php/topic,1311.msg4866.html#msg4866:

      

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

    '' Blessed is He who has placed in the sky great stars and placed therein a [burning] lamp and luminous moon.'' (25:61)

     In the above Ayah Allah says He has placed great stars in the Heaven and also place therein a lamp (Sun) and a luminous moon. Okay I don't understand why Allah differentiated the stars and the Sun. Why does Allah only address the sun as a lamp while we know that there are much more bigger luminous stars than the sun in the universe? And does this verse mean there is only one Sun and one moon in the Heavens? But it's not possible as I have told you earlier that our Universe consists of many Sun like stars and also Moons.

     Please clarify this.

    Answer:

    Hello brother Farhan!

    I wanted to let you know that this verse (25:61) uses the word that is more accurately translated as constellations. So right away, you know that this verse is referring to the human perception of the sky! We see constellations and patterns in the sky, so it is our perception. So this verse is adhering to human perception to explain a beautiful phenomena of creation. Next you notice that the Quran says that Allah placed a burning lamp in the sky and a moon. In no way does this mean there is only one burning lamp or one moon, it is just stating that there is a burning lamp and a moon in the sky.

    There are a few things that you need to notice about this verse. In no way does this verse say that the sun isn't a star, or that there is only one moon.

    Next there is another verse in the Quran that addresses the STARS as being LAMPS, just as the sun is.

    Quran 24:35 Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The similitude of His light is as a niche wherein is a lamp. The lamp is in a glass. The glass is as it were a shining star. (This lamp is) kindled from [the oil of] a blessed tree, an olive neither of the East nor of the West, whose oil would almost glow forth (of itself) though no fire touched it. Light upon light. Allah guideth unto His light whom He will. And Allah speaketh to mankind in allegories, for Allah is Knower of all things.

      

    Question:

    thanks brother.

     But can I have some more proof that Quran doesn't say that there is only one moon and one sun? Can you show anymore verse where Allah refers to the stars as lamps? And can you make it more clearer why do you think the verse is talking about human perception? It will Inshallah convince me.

    PLEASE HELP

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brothers and sisters,

    Brother Mclinkin94, great answer akhi.  May Allah Almighty bless you.  Ameen.

    I would like to add that Allah Almighty created the creatures on earth to live by day and night.  Some planets, and even parts on this earth, have very long days cycles and very long nights cycles.  Normal life on earth was designed by an equal rotation of the day and night.  So by Divine Design, Allah Almighty placed the moon to be our night light, and for the sun to be our glorious star.

    Furthermore, Allah Almighty Said the following:

    ‏91:1 والشمس وضحاها
    ‏91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
    ‏91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها


    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"



    Did you know our shining and glorious days, on a clear day, are a magnification of the sun's rays by our atomosphere?  Outside our atmosphere, the universe is pitch black!  And Allah Almighty Said that it is our day that magnifies and glorifies the sun's brightness.  Please visit:

    Question:

    '' It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.''(36:40)

     Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.


     Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

     And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?

    Answer:

    '' It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.''(36:40)
      
    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    People were asking the Prophet, peace be upon him, if the sun and the moon were ever going to collide.  The people thought that the sun and the moon were both running on one lane or line or orbit or path, and that they're together, and that if one slows down, then the other would catch up to it and they'd ultimately collide Allah Almighty responded to this nonsense by making it absolutely clear that the sun and the moon are traveling in entirely different orbits, and that they could not catch up to each others and collide.  So what the empty anti-Islamics of today try to prove as a scientific blunder in the Holy Quran turns out to be an accurate Scientific Statement and a Scientific Miracle of its time.

    Also,  the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped.  Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
      
    Enbiya/33
    It is He Who created the Night and the Day, and the sun and the moon: all (of them) swim in an orbit.
      
    Same exact reponse as above.  Yes, they're not on the same orbit.  This is Scientifically estabilished.  And again, the Holy Quran Said that the moon's orbit is S-Shaped.  Allah Almighty never said the same about the sun's orbit.
      
    Okay in some articles it is said that the above verses are talking about the motion of everything including sun,moon,earth,planets and stars. But how? Because the verses only mention sun, moon and earth? If I say Ibrahim and Ali, Sami and Abdel, Ahmad and Uthman everyone is a good player or all are good players will it imply also the people whose names are unmentioned?  Can anyone explain this in detail?

    And does Quran say anything about earth's motion around the Sun? And Moon's motion around the earth?
      
    Allah Almighty started the Noble Verse with speaking only about the sun and the moon, and the night and the day.  But ended it by saying ALL swimming in their independent orbits.  This is referring here to all celestial bodies in the Universe.  This is further clearly proven in other Noble Verses where Allah Almighty talking about the orbits of the celestial bodies, and how once in space, traveling becomes in orbits.  Please visit the following video of Dr. Zaghloul Al-Najjar.  He thoroughly and beautifully explained this beautiful Miracle in the Holy Quran with ample examples and details:

    http://www.answering-christianity.com/day_layer_reveals_the_sun_brightness.wmv

    All celestial bodies are يعرجون Yaa'rujoon (traveling in orbits) in space.  The video in the link speaks about the countless orbits in the Universe, and the day-layer reveals the sun's brightness.  This video is about Noble Verses 32:5, 34:2, 57:4, 70:3-4 and others, and the Arabic words عرج , عروج , معارج  and  معراج  that all refer to "going in an orbital and curvy path" in the Glorious Quran and our Islamic Texts.

    Question:

    And the moon darkens.(75: 8 )

    And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

    Can anyone explain the above verses? Why Allah says that the moon and the sun will be joined? As sun is much bigger than the moon , it should swallow it not get joined with it. I'm confused. I have read some articles where they say that through these verses Allah says that Sun will swallow the Moon before the Final Hour. But the verse uses ''JOINED'' not ''SWALLOWED''. Or is it talking about Solar eclipse? If so then the translation might me wrong.

    Answer:

    As'salamu Alaikum dear brother,

    Here are the Noble Verses:

    ‏75:7 فاذا برق البصر
    ‏75:8 وخسف القمر
    ‏75:9 وجمع الشمس والقمر
    ‏75:10 يقول الانسان يومئذ اين المفر

    [075:007]  At length, when the sight is dazed,
    [075:008]  And the moon is buried in darkness.
    [075:009]  And the sun and moon are joined together,-
    [075:010]  That Day will Man say: "Where is the refuge?"


    I believe this is a Prophecy about a Great Eclipse that will take place.  This actually makes sense, since when the Hour Comes, the Universe's orbits' path will turn into a spegetti mess on a massive scale, and all celestial bodies will be colliding violently with each others.  So it makes sense that:

    1-  Our atmosphere will change, and hence it will greatly effect our visions, since the sun rays are all magnified and become glorious, as we know them, through our atmosphere as Allah Almighty mentioned clearly in the Glorious Quran:

    ‏91:1 والشمس وضحاها 
    ‏91:2 والقمر اذا تلاها
    ‏91:3 والنهار اذا جلاها 

    "By the sun and its radiant light, and the moon that trails (and reflects) its light. By the day that magnifies and glorifies (جلاها) its brightness.  (The Noble Quran, 91:1-3)"
     
    Please visit: http://www.quransearch.com/sun_rays_miracle.htm


    Lunar Eclipses do blur and permanently damage the eye's cornea:

    The following pictures certainly prove the points above.  Another point worth mentioning is that when the Hour Comes, the sun's rays might be much much more than what they already are today.  There are several Noble Verses in the Glorious Quran that indicate that this will actually happen:

    http://www.quransearch.com/water_shall_vanish.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/galaxy_explosion.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/end_of_times_volcanoes_caused_by_stretching_of_earth.htm
    http://www.quransearch.com/ac20.htm#links



    In the case, the lunar eclipse would be far greater than what it appears to be in the following pictures:







    When watching the lunar eclipse outside, special Eye Shields are required to prevent blindness and/or permanent eye damages, especially to the cornea:






    2-  Because of the chaos in the orbits, our solar system's orbits will also go in chaos, and hence the sun's and the moon's orbits will cross each others, and an eclipse will occur as a result.

    3-  When the events in point #2 happen, then the sky will darken and the moon will be buried in darkness.

    Great question dear brother, Farhan!  I will add this on the website with more elaborations, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah

      

    Question:

    Assalamualykum.

     I'm still confused about these verse:

      And the sun and the moon are joined,(75:9)

     Even if it is talking about solar eclipse, why it says that sun and moon will be joined? We know during Solar Eclipse, the moon comes in between the Sun and the Earth. Moon is not joined. Please, can you explain this in detail?

    Answer:

    Wa Alaikum As'salam dear brother,

    It is possible that the moon will eventually be swallowed by the sun, along with all of our solar system's celestial bodies.  We've seen above already how this Noble Verse is talking about the Great Lunar Eclipse when the Hour Comes.  As to the language of the sun and the moon will be joined together, while it is about a lunar eclipse, but it could also be referring to the moon eventually leaving its orbit here around earth and be devoured by the sun.  You see, the two immediate celestial bodies to us humans that our naked eyes could see up close and personal, from our view here on earth, are:

    1-  The moon.
    2-  The sun.

    And they are the most relevant and vital celestial bodies for our life here on earth.  So if Allah Almighty spoke in limited language about the sun and the moon, it doesn't limit the event to just them.  But to us humans, since these two celestial bodies are what we see in considerable size and clarity from earth here, then they are the most relevant to us.  Plus as I said, they are the most relevant and vital to our life here on earth as well.  So Allah Almighty putting emphasis on the sun and the moon wouldn't mean that the Noble Verse is limited to just them.

    As to the Arabic جمع (joined) in Noble Verse 75:9 above, it could very well be referring to being aligned together according to our view and perspective here on earth.  جمع is both a noun and a simple past in Arabic:

    1-  جمع means a group for a noun.
    2-  جمع means joined together, came together, summoned together, brought together, put together for a simple past.

    The Noble Word would be very appropriate and suitable if Allah Almighty spoke about the Great Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour Comes.  And we see very clearly from the full context in Noble Verses 75:7-10, in the previous posts above, that Allah Almighty did indeed speak about a Lunar Eclipse will happen when the Hour comes.

    I know I've written an article years ago about these Noble Verses.  I will update it with these new posts today, Insha'Allah (if Allah Almighty is Willing).

    I hope this helps, Insha'Allah.

    Take care,
    Osama Abdallah

    The S-shaped moon orbit!

    This is not the only time Allah Almighty used a notion for astronomy.  In another Noble Verse, He described the shape of the moon's entire orbit around the earth as a shape of an old and dried-out date tree's branch, also scientifically known and confirmed today as S-shaped.  The shape of the old and dried-out branch of a date tree does resemble the letter "S".  I provided images in the article that prove this.

    A new scientific video, from a Western scientist, confirms the stunning Scientific Miracle in Noble Verses 79:30-32 regarding Allah Almighty bringing forth the waters (oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, etc...) after He expanded the earth.  Scientists have proven that our planet earth, indeed, was at one point all covered with land with shallow and limited bodies of water.  The vast bodies of water that we have today, where water today covers more than 70% of the entire globe, happened after the expansion of the earth -- precisely as Allah Almighty mentioned in the Noble Quran.  Scientists have only recently confirmed it!
