Does Quran 36:40 imply geocentrism?


The says the sun follows the moon, does that imply it means the earth?

The Glorious Quran makes it clear that the sun and moon swimming in separate orbits.  Allah Almighty also talked about them being used for our reconning (mathematical calculation of determining time and direction).  Allah Almighty talked about them in relation to our earth and what services they provide for us and our life and survival.

As to geocentrism, everything in the universe is the center of the universe.  You are the center of the universe.  Any object can be used as the center of the universe if everything has to be measured by how far they are from that object.  The following scientific video demonstrates this in details:

       -  Is in constant motion.
       -  Is suspended in space.
       -  Is swimming in space.
       -  Is traveling through the constantly expanding universe.

And we thoroughly see the Glorious Quran being proven to be a 100% Divine Book from Allah Almighty through Its STUNNING Numerical and Scientific Miracles, and Prophecies:

The following articles are also important regarding the sun and the moon orbits in relation to our planet earth in the Glorious Quran:
