As'salamu Alaikum everyone,

Please visit my detailed answer with a detailed video at: http://www.answering-christianity.com/swimming_in_space_miracle.htm.  There, you'll also learn about the Cosmological Principle, which basically states:

"No matter where are you in the Universe, everything will seem to be moving away from you, expanding, at the same rate."

Not that the Glorious Quran ever said that earth is the center of the Universe, but since Allah Almighty spoke in several Noble Verses about the earth and other celestial objects, and earth was the focus and the primary object in the context, then to some this means that Allah Almighty is saying that earth is the center of the Universe.  And as always, the anti-Islamics are quick to use twisting of Text of this sort to attack Islam.

This article, Insha'Allah, refutes and silences the lies against Islam.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

Hello brother Osama, as always, I love the way you explain things in detail and I love the style of your discussion!

when you said:

"However, throughout the Glorious Quran, Allah Almighty did speak in several Noble Verses about earth and the objects in the Universe relative to the earth.  In other words, our earth would be the center or the focus or the primary celestial body of the Noble Verse, and the other celestial bodies would be the secondary objects."

I would also add that Allah spoke of objects in the universe relative to earth because the Quran was meant for us humans who reside on earth. I'm sure if he wrote a Quran to aliens, he would talk about everything relative to their home planet and he wouldn't be talking about earth  :).

As'salamu Alaikum dear brother Mclinkin94,

Jazaka Allah Khayr for the kind words, akhi.  Just wanted to let you know that I have just added your quote to the article.  Your statement was right on, akhi.  May Allah Almighty bless you.  Ameen.
