Is the Earth Flat?

düz_dünya-dünya-yuvarlak-görelilik-yerçekimi

There is a lot of theories on the internet stating that the earth is actually flat. There is even an international club of flat earthers. Many believers of the Bible also think that the earth is flat … what to believe ?

Once again, the Quran contains the answer to this important question, and the answer is no, the earth has the shape of an egg, it is not exactly round but is ellipsoidal, almost round.

And the earth afterwards, he made it round like egg (79:30)

Almost all English translations of the Quran mistranslate the word DaHY, a word that is still used for “egg” among Arabic-speaking populations in North Africa. Why? The answer can be found in the footnotes of some classic commentaries of the Quran, which were written centuries ago.

Early commentators and translators of the verse were stuck on the word DaHY, since it means (as we have translated) egg. In the verse it is used as a transitive verb with the third person pronoun Ha, which means “made it round like egg” or literally “egged it.” But, the commentators thought that the earth was flat!

Since they knew God’s word could not contain errors or contradiction, they assumed their understanding of the verse must have been wrong. Thus, they tried to interpret the description. They argued that the word DaHY (egg) must have implied maDHY (nest), and inferred that God meant “nest” by the word “egg.” Therefore, the earth is extended like a nest.

Early commentators had an excuse for reaching such a conclusion, since they did not know that the earth was spherical and slightly distended (like an egg); however, modern commentators of the Quran have no excuse to parrot this medieval misunderstanding. They should have known that the verse means what it says: the earth is shaped like an egg. The external physical appearance of planet earth is like an egg, and its cross-section displays geological layers similar to egg. Not only is the earth eggshaped and resembles an egg regarding its layers, but so is its orbit around the sun. In fact, this is Kepler’s famous First Law of Planetary Motion: the orbit of a planet about a star is an ellipse, as opposed to a perfect circle.

If you want a quick proof that the earth is not flatm you just have to observe setting at the horizon, and you’ll see how the sun progressively hide behind the horizon. Another proof, if how the sun enlight the earth. In the flat earth hoax, the sun is supposed to have circular trajectory over the disc representing the earth in their false theory. If truly, it was the case, the sun will not enligh the same regions of the earth than in the real life. For instance, in the real life, the sun enlight almost half of the globe, and at the extremeties of this half, the light starts fading, while in the flat earth theory, the sun only enlight less than the quarter of the globe.

Now, let’s wonder why the theory of the flat earth has been promoted all around the world, what is the purpose behind the promotion of this fake theory?

Centuries ago, the whole world thought that the earth was flat, and when this theory was debunked thanks to scientific observations and discoveries, the first people who were opposed to the fact that the earth is round were the religious people. Why?

Because they thought that their scriptures were stating that the earth was flat, and as they think that God cannot be wrong, they thought that those who believe that the earth is round are against God.

But they were wrong, because they misunderstood  the words of God, the religious experts misinterpretated the verse concerning the shape of the earth in order to make it fit with their common belief at that time … But they were wrong because most of the common beliefs are wrong, and it is not a good way to interpret the verses of the Quran in order to make them fit with a specific belief, the right way is not to interpret God’s verses but to faithfully translate them even if it goes against our common beliefs. So contrary to what most of the people think, it is not God who is wrong about the shape of the earth (it is indeed round shaped) but the translators of the Quran.

Why is there a strong lobby to promote the flat earth theory still today?

Because the enemies of God want to associate this false belief to those who believe in God, they want to make them pass for people who are completely disconnected from reality. The ennemies of God promote fake theories in order to spread confusion and to push the people into doubt. Fortunately, the Quran does not let any doubt concerning all what we need to know in this world. The enemies of God want the people to think that what is written in the Scriptures is wrong, they oppose their so called science to religion, whereas science and religion cannot be put at the same level. Religion is above science, science is just a proof of the religion. God knows everything, God tells us what to believe about all things, and science allows to validate God’s statements with our own means.

The other reason is to associate this hoax to all the other conspiracy theories, and put them all in the same bag. That whay, they can discredit them all by putting forward the hoax of the flat earth. The devils are bedhing a great number of false conspiracy theories in order to discredit the true conspiracy theories, and the truth seekers.

The ennemies of God have hijacked science and turned it into a new religion, a tool against the religion of God. The ennemies of God have deceived the whole world by stating that science can explain the origin of life thanks to false theories like Darwin’s theory of Evolution, but the truth is that true science is one thing and scientific theories are another thing. True science can be reproduced, experienced, tested by our own means, whereas scientific theories like the origin of the universe and of life (Evolution) are mere theories, which cannot be validated. A quick look into these theories is enought to realize that they are no more than fairy tales.

For instance, Evolution states that we are descendants of apes and that the human body follows a specific evolution …. But once again this cannot be true. For instance, the ennemies of God put all their efforts to hide to the general public about the existence of human giants. In the beginning of the twentieth century, thousands of giant skulls have been discovered in America, the indians tribes unanimely have in their history accurate stories about giants….. but the existence of a race of human giants goes against the theory of Evolution, that’s why the ennemies of God wanted to hide the existence of these giants. But once again the Quran is clear about the existence of this race (they are the people of Aad as named in the Quran), and fortunately, God always guides his believers to the truth, the truth shall prevail whereas falsehood shall vanish.

    1. This is one of the biggest lie of Satan … No the earth is not flat.

      Satan deliberatly promotes fake theories to discredit the Truth movement.

      The flat earth theory is Satan’s lie and is promoted by trolls and agents of Satan who are not here to promote the truth, but to occult it.

  1. Salam messager de Dieu
    Après mon dernier commentaire, j’étais impatient de savoir ton interprétation du sujet sur la vérité de l’aspect réel de la terre. Après le travail je consultais ton site dans l’espoir d’une réponse et je me suis fait dire “patience”. Il fallait que tu me reponds avant que je t’assaille d’une autre question. Gloire et pureté à Allah. Je vis certaines épreuves… J’ai été guidé à cette article. Avant de le lire, je me suis demandé pourquoi le messager de Dieu n’a t-il pas éclaircit un sujet si important que celui-ci. J’apprends et je comprends, l’on me dit “patience” et “endurance”. J’ai un handicap, je ne sais pas lire l’arabe. Je suis prisonnier de la traduction du sens des versets du Coran en ma possession. Qu’Allah me pardonne et qu’Il me guide dans Son sentier. Je n’ai de volonté que ce qu’Il met dans mon cœur. Alors mon Seigneur m’a dirigé vers toi, Oh messager aide moi à comprendre. Allah guide et égare qui Il veut. Gloire au Très-Haut. Alors j’ai lu et une fois de plus certaines certitudes que j’avais étaient fausses ou erronées. Je pensais que la terre était une toupie ronde, puis j’ai réalisé que ça marche pas, alors j’ai cru qu’elle devrait être plate. Et la je viens d’accepter selon ce que tu révèles qu’elle a la forme d’un oeuf. Mais je dois t’avouer que j’aimerais plus de détails selon le Coran bien-sûr. Le soleil, la lune … Est-ce si imporant?! Bien-sûr que non. Seul glorifier Dieu est important. Porte toi bien par la grâce d’Allah.
    PS: j’ai pas trouvé d’autre moyen que par commentaire pour communiquer avec toi. Excuse moi si cela te gêne. je.suis.soumis.a.Allah@gmail.com

    1. Bonjour à toi,
      quel dernier commentaire? sous quel pseudo?

      le mot utilisé dans le Coran concernant la forme de la terre ne laisse aucun doute, la terre a une forme sphérique légérement ovoidale. Un autre verset parle d’enrouler, comme autour d’un ballon, le jour sur la nuit et la nuit sur le jour, ce qui confirme bien la forme ovoidale de la terre.

      Sinon, tu peux le verifier par tes propres yeux, en observant un coucher de soleil et en constatant que le soleil demeure tres gros à l’horizon et qu’il se cache progressivement, si la terre avait été plate, alors le soleil serait de plus en plus petit à l’horizon sans se cacher progressivement comme il le fait.

      Aussi, le soleil eclaire en permanence la moitié de la planete, cela ne peut etre le cas avec la theorie de la terre plate sous forme de disque et le soleil qui fait le tour du disque.

      bien à toi

      1. Salam messager d’Allah.
        Soumis à Allah est le pseudo avec lequel je t’ai abordé la première fois. Je t’avais demandé conseil sur des vidéos portant sur le complot mondial. Par la grâce du Tout-Puissant j’ai très vite compris l’inposture de la personne à l’origine des dites vidéos. J’ai néanmoins trouver certains faits énoncés marquant. J’ai très vite réalisé que tu devrais de par ton statut de messager de Dieu être très occupé (ta vie civile et ta famille aussi) et plus la fin se rapprochera et plus tu seras occupé si Dieu le veut. J’attends patiemment (en vérité je suis impatient) ta traduction du Coran en français. Aussi la rédaction de futurs articles. Je suis attentif à ton travail. Louange à Allah qui nous fait sortir des ténèbres pour la lumière. Que Dieu te bénisse et qu’Il te fasse hériter le paradis par Sa grâce et Sa miséricorde. Merci
        Gloire à Allah.

      2. Bonjour à toi,
        tant mieux si tu as pu y voir clair.

        Par la grâce de Dieu, je ne me sens ni débordé, ni fatigué, ni surbooké… Dieu préconise l’équilibre et la mesure en toutes choses, par conséquent j’alterne entre vie de famille, vie sociale, vie professionnelle, sport, distractions, travaux manuels et jardinage, études personnelles, …., et mon rôle de messager.

        C’est Dieu qui fait mon planning, donc je ne m’inquiète pas de prendre du retard et je ne cherche pas à prendre de l’avance non plus, ce qui arrive à chaque seconde est exactement ce qui a été prévu par Dieu. Chaque chose vient en son temps. Je laisse donc Dieu gérer toute ma vie pour moi et me contente de suivre ce qu’Il me montre clairement et je ne cherche pas à anticiper sa décision.

        Figure toi que c’est le contraire, plus le temps passe, MOINS je suis occupé, car plus mon travail m’est facilité par Dieu, plus le gros de mon message (le plus difficile à exprimer) est déjà passé …. et à la fin, quand Dieu m’auras fait avertir les gens par tous les angles et preuves possibles, alors cela sera la fin de ma mission, et la venue de la sentence d’Allah. Pour le moment, j’ai encore pas mal de chose à partager, mais c’est Dieu qui décide quand les partager et c’est Dieu qui complète mon savoir sur ces sujets afin que je sois prêt au moment de les partager.

        Je te conseille de ne pas trop attendre mes articles, mais plutôt te lancer toi-même sur ta propre voie en partant du point ou tu en es dans chaque domaine de ta vie… Maintenant, tu connais la voie, alors engage toi dessus avec Allah qui t’accompagne et tu pourras avancer par toi-même. Rien n’est impossible avec Allah et il n’y a aucun limite ni barrière avec Allah, alors n’aie pas froid aux yeux et sois ambitieux, il n’y a pas de croyant de seconde zone pour Allah, nous sommes tous logé à la même enseigne et disposons tous des mêmes chances, même si le point de départ diffère d’une personne à l’autre.

        Dieu n’envoie pas les messagers pour que les gens dépendent d’eux, mais uniquement pour dire aux gens qu’ils doivent faire le chemin avec Allah plutôt, alors il ne faut pas trop s’attarder sur les messagers une fois qu’on a reçu le message de Dieu dont on a besoin…. J’ai deja expliqué en détail quelle était la bonne voie, alors à chacun de prendre cette voie au rythme qu’il désire.

        Dieu peut t’inspirer, guider tes pas vers la bonne information, te donner la bonne reflexion et analyse, te faire venir aux bonnes conclusions, te faire mémoriser tout cela, et t’aider à mettre en oeuvre ce qui tu as appris….pour cela, il faut tendre vers Dieu et lui faire confiance, c’est cela le chemin de foi, un chemin seul avec Dieu. C’est quand on est seul avec Dieu qu’on est apaisé, comme un enfant qui aime avoir l’exclusivité de maman et de son papa, Dieu nous offre l’exclusivité avec Lui ….

        Merci pour ton message d’encouragement et tes prières, que Dieu soit avec toi

  2. No dictionary or early scholar would ever agree with you. Daha means spread out or expand, plain and simple as stated by Lane’s Lexicon, Lisan Al Arab and many other dictionaries. Shawkani, Hasan Khan, Qunuwi and even Ar-Razi said either that it means a flat earth (first 3) or said that scholars who believed the earth was flat used the verse (Razi)

    1. yet this word is also known to mean “egg”, which is precisely the shape of the earth. The earth cannot be flat for obvious reasons and other verses of the Quran speak about the night and the day which encircle the earth. I do not deny the several definitions of this word in the dictionaries that you mention, but simply, these dictionaries do not contain all the different meanings of this word.

      1. Not only do these dictionaries contain different meanings, but they outright reject your meaning. Lane’s for instance notes daha as the action of spreading the ground for the eggs, not the eggs themselves. This interpretation is simply a myth

      2. sorry bro, but I have to disagree.

        In arabic دورة is issued from the same root than دوى … and دورة refers to a round shape, circle.

        DaHY is used in north africa to mean an egg …this cannot be invented as it is currently in use…. simply the dictionaries have lost this meaning….the proof of that, this word is still in use, yet this definition is not present in the dictionaries.

        The dictionaries are books of men and not perfect books, so you have to base your beliefs in concrete and logic proofs and not in blind beliefs in the dictionaries.

        Btw, most of the arabic dictionaries are influenced by the islamic misconception, and there many many many words of the Quran which are simple mistranslated. This results in verses which lack of sense, because they are simply mistranslated.

        I am working on my own translation of the Quran, and the result is very different from the non sense present translations.

        I invite your to read this article which is the warning from Allah to the muslims:

        https://thetruthisfromgod.com/2019/03/05/warning-to-muslims-from-allah/

        Bear in mind that I am not intending to convince you and I am not asking you to pledge to me, but only to acknowledge the truth when you meet it ..even if it goes against your own preconceived beliefs.
