Islam & Flat Earth
« on: March 25, 2016, 07:16:00 AM »

After one year / re-edited / a lot of replies were very aggressive, be careful of Fitna just saying..

Alsalam Alikom Muslims, I would like at first to tell you about the problems that I faced in my first year after thinking that earth is flat.
It's very hard not to open this topic with close friends and family, they all denied it, they all rejected it, for sure they would, they didnt have the same experience of what I/you had, they didn't know about 9/11, they didn't go under the same idea process, they don't know about the cabal shadow government, they are like all the general people that we know. I opened this topic with a lot of close people, I faced many problems, they knew that I'm not stupid, so they thought that I'm testing their intelligence and none of them allowed me to say that Quran says it's Flat Earth, they all said do not talk about Quran to prove this subject, Quran is innocent of what you say.
It took 3 months or something, not opening this subject to them again, I did only once, now they forgot about it, and now we are back to normal. we had some hard issues not accepting each other and this is a very big problem. and this could be a Fitna, because we could live without bringing this topic, and if a husband/wife open this discussion it could be very hard to them, and it can ruin their relationship and break up their home, which can be very bad to them, to you, to me, to anyone.

Regarding me, now, unfortunately,  things are getting harder, before I was a FlatEarther, I was thinking that there should be no TV at my future home (it was very hard to agree on this with a lot of women I met in the cause of getting married) now, it's even harder, there shall be no TV, my wife should be a flatearthie as well, also children will not go to school, and no vaccinations, we don't trust any government, and we just live like strangers in any society, we teach our children religion, how to grow food, how to respect each other, how to avoid problems esp. for kids that do not go to normal schools. and what they need to know, no need for all this pseudoscience n more simple life but actually it's more sophisticated in the eyes of others. (will my parents accept it? will her parents accept it? will she accept it? will you accept it if your wife tells you about it?)

This is very dangerous topic to open, better to be smart, to accept the denial of others from the beginning, to open this subject only once, and I don't know, maybe your friends/family are much more opened to the truth than my friends/family.

Always seek refuge in Allah from Satan and All Fitnas (including this, if this topic is a fitna, maybe it's not, maybe it's just the pure truth) , Remember, you can live without this topic, nothing will change theoretically, you can still eat your healthy food, and you can still have good times with friends/family, and you can keep your daily routine as it is. remember, Satan wants to ruin relationships between believers of God, remember our enemy is Satan, remember everyone who says La ilaha illa Allah is considered to be your ally and you should not steal/offend/backbite/etc.. as the hadith say:
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Do not envy one another; do not inflate prices by overbidding against one another; do not hate one another; do not harbour malice against one another; and do not enter into commercial transaction when others have entered into that (transaction); but be you, O slaves of Allah, as brothers. A Muslim is the brother of another Muslim; he neither oppresses him nor does he look down upon him, nor does he humiliate him. Piety is here, (and he pointed to his chest three times). It is enough evil for a Muslim to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. All things of a Muslim are inviolable for his brother-in-faith: his blood, his property and his honour".

[Muslim]. *  be careful! a lot of replies so aggressive, so be careful, we don't want to fight with each other if we disagree about Flat Earth or not, I don't think that the angels will ask us when we die, whether Earth is flat or a globe.

no matter what Earth looks like, you are more important/valuable to me than this topic, if you will be upset with me or anyone only because of this topic, then I apologize, and please ignore my opinion and forget about it, and we close this subject, all other subjects are opened, and remember, we are brothers in God, as Allah unite us.

Again and again, if this topic will divide us, then forget about it, if this topic may unite us, then it's better to bring it, just before you open this subject with me or anyone, just remember to seek refuge in Allah from Satan and all Fitna in Dunya and Ahera, and remember that Brothership is very valuable and you dont really want to ruin it only for a silly subject like Flat/Globe Earth. like who cares??? 


My name is Mohamad Barakat, was born in 1987, Muslim, Syrian, living in Turkey, I'm glad that I found you, I was new to the theory in 2016, which now I believe it's a fact, still under process, I was a an anti-flat guy, showing disagreement with respect, I used to think that those flat earthers are new comers to truth, the couldn't take the truth, they repelled on everything including Earth and its shape, they lost their trust in all kind of authority including their governments and all governments, so they ignorantly went back to the caveman knowledge of flat earth. now things changed, it seems it's a flat, more logical, for many reasons, my journey started with 9/11 truth ---> I was introduced to NWO ----> then FM ---> then I watched Alex Jones Bohemian Groove, SATANISTS (At this time I was one of those people who are PROUD of what science and evolution did to humanity, unfortunately I was an idiot at that time, it's all pseudo-science as revealed later) ----> later I became an Agnostic, how come there is a war on religion, and a war on christians and muslims, and a war on poor countries, and there is a Satanic media, and hollywood, how come there's no Satan? here I started to think, how come people worshiping Satan, yet they claim there is no God, it's very stupid to say that there is no God but they worship satan. u know? its very satanic to say that! and for sure the story of Religion, how we came to this earth only to fight Satan, after asking God to show me the path and thinking at one night of God and praising him -----> God accepted my prayers and showed me the path and accepted me to be a Believer Alhamdullillah, thanks to god, it wasn't my smartness, it was Allah guiding me to the path in sha'a Allah.
(So far, im certain about it, I've never been more sure about anything more than believing in God) ------> and now, after all of that, after years of being a believer, I found myself here, with FLAT EARTH.


In the beginning, all religions said that Earth is flat, in Christianity and Islam said it's a flat earth, but after some freemasons and after lies of Nasa and others, I don't know how all religion started to believe that Earth is a globe..

I will try to cover all points regarding Islam & Flat Earth, it will take time, every time I meet up with a new information, I will come to add it.

ISLAM & FLAT EARTH

At first before we start, do you know what Imams nowadays say about Earth ? they consider it a globe, you know why ? they took only one quote, only one, which is in AlTakwir (making things circle shape)

يكور الليل على النهار ويكور النهار على الليل وسخر الشمس والقمر كل يجري لأجل مسمي ألا هو العزيز الغفار‏.(‏ الزمر‏:5)‏
(5) He created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): He makes the Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night: He has subjected the sun and the moon (to His law): Each one follows a course for a time appointed. Is not He the Exalted in Power - He Who forgives again and again?

This is the only quote about a Globe, they considered (NIGHT & DAY) which are mentioned to be circle shape, Night overlap the Day, and the Day overlap the Night.

They ignore everything regarding Flat Earth quotes which we all know.

- Qur'an 15:19
والارض مددناها والقينا فيها رواسي وانبتنا فيها من كل شئ موزون
Waal-arda madadnahawaalqayna feeha rawasiya waanbatnafeeha min kulli shay-in mawzoonin

And the earth We have spread out (like a carpet); set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance.

- Qur'an 20:53
الذي جعل لكم الارض مهدا وسلك لكم فيها سبلا وانزل من السماء ماء فاخرجنا به ازواجا من نبات شتى
Allathee jaAAala lakumu al-ardamahdan wasalaka lakum feeha subulan waanzala mina alssama-imaan faakhrajna bihi azwajan min nabatinshatta

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.

- Qur'an 43:10
الذي جعل لكم الارض مهدا وجعل لكم فيها سبلا لعلكم تهتدون
Allathee jaAAala lakumu al-ardamahdan wajaAAala lakum feeha subulan laAAallakum tahtadoona

(Yea, the same that) has made for you the earth (like a carpet) spread out, and has made for you roads (and channels) therein, in order that ye may find guidance (on the way);

- Qur'an 50:7
والارض مددناها والقينا فيها رواسي وانبتنا فيها من كل زوج بهيج
Waal-arda madadnahawaalqayna feeha rawasiya waanbatnafeeha min kulli zawjin baheejin

And the earth- We have spread it out, and set thereon mountains standing firm, and produced therein every kind of beautiful growth (in pairs)-

- Qur'an 51:48
والارض فرشناها فنعم الماهدون
Waal-arda farashnahafaniAAma almahidoona

And We have spread out the (spacious) earth: How excellently We do spread out!

- Qur'an 71:19
والله جعل لكم الارض بساطا

And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet (spread out)

- Qur'an 78:6
الم نجعل الارض مهادا
Alam najAAali al-arda mihadan

Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse

- Qur'an 79:30

Many Islamist apologists attempt to deflect criticism that the Qur'an promotes the mistaken belief of a flat earth by the word dahaha used in Qur'an 79:30, commonly translated as ‘spread’ or ‘stretched’.

Most of Qur'an Translators said it's Stretched, which belong to flat earth theory, and not the egg shape, as following:

Qur'an Translations
Yusuf Ali: And the earth, moreover, hath He extended (to a wide expanse); [4]
Pickthal: And after that He spread the earth, [4]
Arberry: and the earth-after that He spread it out, [4]
Shakir: And the earth, He expanded it after that. [4]
Sarwar: After this, He spread out the earth, [4]
Hilali/Khan: And after that He spread the earth; [4]
Malik: After that He spread out the earth, [4]
Maulana Ali: And the earth, He cast it after that. [4]
Free Minds: And the land after that He spread out. [4]
Some translations have attempted to translate the word dahaha to mean made egg-shaped or like an ‘ostrich egg’.

Khalifa: He made the earth egg-shaped. [4]
QXP: And after that He made the earth shoot out from the Cosmic Nebula and made it spread out egg-shaped. ('Dahaha' entails all the meanings rendered (21:30), (41:11)). [4]

Transliteration: Waal-arda baAAda thalika dahaha
Literal: And the earth/Planet Earth after that He blew and stretched/spread it. [4]

- Qur'an 91:6
والارض وماطحاها
Waal-ardi wama tahaha

By the Earth and its (wide) expanse


Those were most of the points regarding Flat Earth & Globe, I don't claim to be a speaker of Islam, but as mentioned, only my personal notes and experience, for sure there are a lot of Imams who support flat earth, but majority support the globe.

Some links on youtube that motivated me to do the research, but to be honest I don't know the source of these videos, or to whom it belongs, as I noticed that there are a lot of groups proving flat earth, some of them considering religions to be a hoax, some of the brothers Christians and Flat Earth believers (those were my favorites), because the other parties, they give you the 90% truth, and they ruin it in the end when they add the 10%  religion hoax. I guess those people couldn't accept the reality, or they were too surprised that they were living a lie, all this time, and suddenly they revolted against everything in the past, even against religion. That happened to me partially, I'm not a science man anymore, now, i'm only a spirit, locked in this body, learning only from my own experience and nothing else matter.
May Allah guide you/me and show the path to me and you brothers.
Peace & Love



Those Scholars who are influenced by this political System is the one who is responsible about adopting Globe Earth in Islam
This man will be questioned about you and me, and all Globe Muslim believers.









They are all friends, they are just lying to us..

Apolo hoax when NASA is just a liar, NASA = NA(T)SA = SA(T)AN when they flip flop the truth upside down,



Flat Earth:

Whether it is or not, Ashhahadu Anna La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasulu Allah, whether it's a flat or not, I witness that there is no God but one God Allah, and Muhammad is one of his messengers, beside Jesus, Moses, and others. And Jesus will comeback we will fight to his side against anti-christ.
no need to fight between Muslims/Christians/Jews on this topic, its not worthy, our brother-ship in God is what only matters. and to fight Satanism

Welcome. It's interesting to hear about the Flat Earth from an Islamic perspective.

Have you seen that classic piece of Iraqi television in which a humble astronomer takes on a so-called "physicist" and deconstructs his globularist propaganda live on air? At one point, the physicist holds up a science textbook as if he's hoping it will protect him from the onslaught of sheer truth. :)

Hello Mohamad, welcome to the forums. Thank you for posting the information from the Quran relating to the creation of the Earth. I began reading it years ago and found it pretty much identical to the Torah and what Christians call the first Testament of The Holy Bible. It is interesting to me to see others who have come to contemplate flat earth through spiritual means. If you look into the index of this subforum you will see a thread of mine dealing with Intelligent Design and the Flat Earth. It raises the question as to why, among the large portion of society that believes in God, most fully believe in a spherical Earth even though it is incompatible with what religions have taught for thousands of years.

You will find the Flat Earth Society very disinterested in exploring this avenue. They prefer to try to coexist with modern science, eventhough that is about as likely as creationism coexisting with evolution. Many here are very attached to their worldview. My personal stance is that through logic and reason, we can eliminate evolution and the big bang as the cause of our being. The probabilities that time alone somehow organized the 60,000 proteins found in even a single cell organism are astronomical. The third law of thermodynamics states that things are more likely to become more chaotic over time, not achieve any meaningful order. The complexities that define higher forms of life, and the planet Earth itself, in my opinion, show more than enough evidence of intelligent design.

The Qurān & Flat Earth
« Reply #3 on: April 05, 2016, 08:28:42 PM »
Indeed :)

The Qurān explicitly delineates a flat non-rotating Earth.
In fact, the textus confutes Helios-centrism on many occasions !


افلا ينظرون ... الى الارض كيف سطحت
Do they not then look/gaze — at the Earth, how was it flattened ?

The Honourable Qurān is the most misunderstood book in the world.
FE is but one droplet in it, if truth be told.

A diamond in the rough.

Regards


Arabist and Qurānist, among other things.

Hi everybody,
Recently I have watched the Principle movie; in which you can see a debate about if Earth/human being are Significant or not. While They don't discuss the Earth shape, they focus on its location in the universe. More evidences in the documentry show that Earth is the center. Recommended since Flat & Geocentric are connected (i think so).

this ayat means that the day and night are persistant, this ayat is not a proof of globe

Hello Muhammet,

As a Turk i say you wellcome to forum and Turkey, "hoşgeldin".

First i  must say that i'm sorry for you here, i know you have a war on your country caused by our PM dicdator Erdoghan supporting to terrorism on your country. This is a bit our mistake because we elected him, but be sure we was not know he'll be a dicdator because he were talking good. :)

I know most of your writen because as a muslim i passed on same way.

Actually islamic scholars changed quran by same way that what happened to torah and bible. They can't change the verses but chance it's means (meals), (translations). Their act depends on the idea that "islam don't conflict to science". This is a nonsence. Most of Reverends depends on this idea because quran encourages research and read. But this not mean "change the meaning of the verses fit to science.

When i saw FE's i see that they are really saved what bible say about earth. This is really interesting that islamic Reverends did they give up easily, but i see christian reverends resisted better then islamic reverends. to be the last religion, the last being the book didn't help them. Yes i'm nevertheless still muslim. Because this is not islamic mistake, this mistake caused by some men believed to NASA 1969 lie.

Anyway. I hope you find out the truth.

Yeah Alhamdulillah yeah i am a muslim but i'm worried about you are not. What are you talking about man? Do you understand yourself? Do you know what is the real meaning of "believe in the books?"

Allah said on the torah and bible that saves them but after that what's happened?

Can you show me a verse on the quran says the bible is changed? Oppositely says "accept them". Look what is "To believe in the books?". It is to believe that they don't changes. Quran, torah and bible all same. No difference. I mean the translate is constantly changing.

The word of "change" has two meaning but  in our world it is same word. I believe that no one of the books can change but they can change like this. This is not a frenzy or nonsence just i'm using same word that "change" to tell.

Look i'll give you an example to show you how is quran changing while it don't changes.  :)

This is from mulk 67/3 verse. الَّذِي خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ طِبَاقًا مَّا تَرَى فِي خَلْقِ الرَّحْمَنِ مِن تَفَاوُتٍ فَارْجِعِ الْبَصَرَ هَلْ تَرَى مِن فُطُورٍ ﴿٣﴾

Now look the last word as " فُطُورٍ". its speaking in Turkish "futuur". the translation of all scholars are saying about futuur as "break". To see one of them look to http://quran.com/67/3 you see that "futurin" or "futur" translated to "break". Is it real? No.

Copy the "فُطُورٍ" , Translate it from Arabic to English. For do that, you can use google or yandex. Both of them let same result. To see it click here. You can listen it. It means "breakfast".

To control it use the opposite translation. Translate "breakfast" to arabic: translated to "futurin". Now translate "break" to arabic, it translates "kesar". The word is not kesar, it is futurin so the true word is "breakfast"

So is it a translate error because in verses it means "break" and in popular arabic it means "breakfast". The words "break" seems like "breakfast" but it has mean completely different. So i look translate it from arabic to turkish. it means kahvaltı (breakfast). Yes we sure that "break" changed to "breakfast" in 1400 years.

The ayath popular translation:

"[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks?"

Same ayath my translation:

"who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return vision; do you see any breakfast?"

As you see that i don't use parantese because it is not my problem who understand what. And used the breakfast that the real meaning of the word. meany or meanless it is not my problem. For real, we should to do that. It seems like meaningless but this is not my problem, because i translated it word to word.

I gave it you as an example. Books are changing like this. Nobody change God's own words but the books are changing by this way. The time is changing so all of the words getting new meanings, so everything is changing, also the holly books. The time changing is unresistable for everything also the books.

I have registered just to reply to this as it shows up on Google.

The above is all rubbish.

Firstly, there's no mention in the Quraan that it's FLAT.

A carpet or turf can be laid out on any terrain even if it's arched. It doesn't have to be flat. To compare and say a carpet cannot be laid on a football is just ridiculous and you wouldn't deserve a reply on something so daft.

It's mentioned as a great gift in the verses the fact that the the Earth is spread out so wide that we can live on it. So it looks flat, but it's not and the Quraan does NOT say it is flat.

I have asked scholars, here you have cowboys pretending to be scholars and speaking on behalf of Muslim's beliefs.

We do not believe the Earth is flat.

Show me one verse that says the Earth is flat. Don't put your own understandings and meaning or interpretations. Just show a clear verse. If it was flat, why wouldn't Allah just say so? In fact, every verse indicates that it's a sphere except to those who have already fallen flat on the Flat Earth madness.

I'm not trying to spin the burden onto you, I am actually just genuinely curious. I am very familiar with Biblical text but not so with the Quran.

But I do give the OP credit for actually explaining why the verses he highlighted could represent the Earth being flat. You made the claim, without any supporting explanations, that every verse describes the Earth as spherical. You didn't spend a lot of time debating OP's points, so it makes it hard for me to really determine how the Earth is described in the Quran.

A very factually wrong statement from you. I didn't make a claim that every verse describes the Earth as spherical. This is a big issue I have with people who do not read text as is and spin their own meanings according to what they think is said.

If you like I can take the OP and debunk it in a very basic manner using nothing but language if there's any genuine interest.

It would only be fair to the OP you are discrediting. And as I said, I don't have any deep knowledge of the Quran, but from what I've studied from the torah and the bible it is very ambiguous as to the shape of the Earth. Nowhere does it definitively describe the Earth as a sphere or a flat plane.

Show me one verse that says the Earth is flat. Don't put your own understandings and meaning or interpretations. Just show a clear verse. If it was flat, why wouldn't Allah just say so? In fact, every verse indicates that it's a sphere except to those who have already fallen flat on the Flat Earth madness.

Well to continue the conversation, can you list the verses that clearly describe the earth as a sphere?

I am not the one claiming that the Qur'aan states the Earth is flat and then using verses that says no such thing to try and prove that.

*ahem*

In fact, every verse indicates that it's a sphere except to those who have already fallen flat on the Flat Earth madness.
And what does that have to do with "I am not the one claiming that the Qur'aan states the Earth is flat and then using verses that says no such thing to try and prove that." ?

TheTruthIsOnHere's question was a legitimate follow-up to your statement. Your reply, while true, did not answer his question. It was just an evasion/deflection.

My first response was an attempt to point this out, but perhaps I was too subtle. I apologize if the color coding in this comment seems condescending. I decided to be as explicit as possible this time.

A very factually wrong statement from you. I didn't make a claim that every verse describes the Earth as spherical. This is a big issue I have with people who do not read text as is and spin their own meanings according to what they think is said.

Is this the part where you brag about your linguistic superiority for understanding the difference between "describes" and "indicates"? Oh goody, I can't wait...

Yes a little subtle totes, I glanced over the last quote because I thought it was a signature or something. I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed the obvious claim that he claimed he didn't claim lol

That being said, it is interesting to see this debate not just be something for the Christian and Western world. Disheartening, though, to see some of the same rhetoric and broken logic used.
