40- In the
verse 79:30 it is stated that the Earth is egg shape. Eggs are spherical. How
Muhammad knew this 1400 years ago?
The above verse reads:
Waal-arda baAAda thalika dahaha
It means (word by word):
And the Earth after that was spread.
Hear are the three famous translations.
YUSUFALI: And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide
PICKTHAL: And after that He spread the earth,
SHAKIR: And the earth, He expanded it after that.
Egg in Arabic is “al baiza”. There is no similarity
between the two words.
In Surah 78: 6 it says:
Alam najAAali al-arda mihadan
Have we not made the earth like a bed?
YUSUFALI: Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse,
PICKTHAL: Have We not made the earth an expanse,
SHAKIR: Have We not made the earth an even expanse?
Arabs used to spread their mattresses (beds) on the floor
and sleep on it during the night. In the above verse Muhammad is comparing the
Earth to a bed (Mihad) which is spread out. Therefore the translation of the
three most reliable interpreters of Quran is correct.
I think this “egg story” is one of the lies of Rashad
Khalifa. I heard that from other submitters. Even so, Earth is not like an egg
and an egg is not spherical.
Muslims are just desperate to fool themselves and any lie
