The Hoax of a Rotating Earth..

Assalamu Alikum,

I have loads of Books, Fatwas and Scriptures that say one thing.. Western atheists deceived us when they taught the Hoax of a Rotating Earth !!
All of them are in Arabic unfortunately so I will try to give a translation of the general poin of each one.

Fatwa Ibn Uthaimeen from his official site :
Fatwa Ibn Baz in his book  
(Textual and rational proofs of the rotation of the sun and the motionlessness of the earth and the possibility of ascension to other planets)
"Story of Creation" by Eid Wardany
"Guidance to the skeptic on the matter of rotation" by Abdul karim al-hemid.
Sheikh Ibn Jebrin , and sheikh Abu bakr al-jazaari
Sheikh Twegri
"Thunderbolts on the New Astronomy".
Ibn Taimiah in the compilation of Fatawas :
"Falaks are round and Earth is the center, its core is the lowest of the low (asfal safileen in arabic)"
Sheikh Saleh Fawzan :
Sheikh Yehia haggouri
Not to mention consensus of Salaf Scholars!!
In Bukhari (and Sahih Muslim) there is a Hadith about the prophet telling (Abu Dahr) about the sun and its daily rotation and its Sugud (prostration) under the Throne until the day when Allah will order it to come from the west.
All verbs in the Hadith are for the sun not a Rotating Earth !!

Sahih Muslim, Book I:
 It is narrated on the authority of Abu Dharr that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) one day said: Do you know where the sun goes? They replied: Allah and His Apostle know best. He (the Holy Prophet) observed: Verily it (the sun) glides till it reaches its resting place under the Throne. Then it falls prostrate and remains there until it is asked: Rise up and go to the place whence you came, and it goes back and continues emerging out from its rising place and then glides till it reaches its place of rest under the Throne and falls prostrate and remains in that state until it is asked : Rise up and return to the place whence you came, and it returns and emerges out from its rising place and then it glides (in such a normal way) that the people do not discern anything (unusual in it) till it reaches its resting place under the Throne. Then it would be said to it: Rise up and emerge out from the place of your setting, and it will rise from the place of its setting. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said . Do you know when it would happen ? It would happen at the time when faith will not benefit one who has not previously believed or has derived no good from the faith. 

In Bukhari and Muslim there is a Hadith about the "Sun" stopping for "Joshua bin noon" until he conquered Palestine.

In the west there are two theories : Geocentricity and Heliocentricity. Why would we believe the second when the first is our religion's view?!

There are 4 scientific experiments prove that earth is stationary !!
Michelson-Morely experiment
Michelson-Gale experiment
Airy's failure
The Sagnac experiment
There is no single disproof for this fact till now !! ..

Seven Heavens .. Seven Earths

اللَّهُ الَّذِي خَلَقَ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ وَمِنَ الأرْضِ مِثْلَهُنَّ يَتَنَزَّلُ الأمْرُ بَيْنَهُنَّ
Allah is He Who created seven Firmaments and of the earth a similar number. Through the midst of them (all) descends His Command.
Al-Qur'an, 065.012 (At-Talaq [Divorce])

# There is no such word in the verse as "number"! It is an explanation from the translator.
The word is "methlahun" (مثلهن) means (match them) or (like them) or (equal them).
So it is not only about (same number) it is the same shape!
there are 7 skies and 7 earths but how are they arranged?
one saying tells us that above us 7 built skies and beneath us 7 layers of earth including ours
and every one of these layers has its people and its prophets !!
some say that seven earths mean 7 continents.

but the verse is clear.. Allah's command descends between all the 7 skies and 7 earths.
how is that ? .. Every sky has its earth, a thick part which is the floor of the sky.
In Tafseer Qurtubi for the verse we find :"Hassan (al basri) said , between every two skies one earth"
That means that our earth is the seventh and our sky is the first which merges beautifully with other verses of Qur'an.
When you count skies you start with the lower and ascends but when you count earths you descend from the first to the seventh because sky is highness and earth is lowness.
{EDIT: I no longer believe that the (7 Earths) are the thickness of the skies! I returned to Salaf's interpretation that they are beneath us - ours is the surface and the first -and that Hell fire is also beneath the seventh earth}

Tirmizi narrated the prophet saying "Do you know what is the distance between heaven and Earth?.. the Sahaba (companions) said : Allah and his messenger know best. the prophet said: between them five hundred years marching, and from each heaven to the next five hundred years marching , and The thickness of each heaven is a distance of five hundred years marching"

In the prophet's days, marching was by using camels, and Arabs measured distance in days and the time it would take to reach the destination riding camels.
So a 500 years marching is not like what atheist scientists tell us that stars -not mentioning heaven!- are billions of years away from us.
Calculating the 500 years distance it would be near 7 millions kilometers.. Just That !!

Six Days ...

050.038 We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us.

Al-Qur'an, 050.038 (Qaf [The letter Qaf])

025.059 He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between, in six days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): Allah Most Gracious: ask thou, then, about Him of any acquainted (with such things).
Al-Qur'an, 025.059 (Al-Furqan [The Criterion, The Standard])

Those 6 days are just that ..days !! Not millions of years like atheists tell us.

Some say why did Allah take days to create the universe if he could just say the word and in a moment every thing would be there ? ... It is a privilege , people !! "We have honoured the sons of Adam..."
Al-Qur'an, 017.070 (Al-Isra [Isra, The Night Journey, Children of Israel])
I do not want to give a worldly example for Allah because it is forbidden to liken to Allah's deeds but hear me here. If your mother spent time making you dinner will it be the same as if she just ordered pizza ? .. and beside that " He cannot be questioned for His acts, but they will be questioned (for theirs)" Al-Qur'an, 021.023 (Al-Anbiya [The Prophets]).

Days of Creation :

Day 1 Every thing was created from water. the core started to harden representing Earth. What is around the core started to rise like smoke representing the Skies.

Day 2 : Earth solidified and the smoke reached its place up. The smoke-skies were ripped (separated) from Earth with a distance (the current space between our Earth and the first sky). the day and night were created (even before the sun and the moon!). The skies' mass solidified (not yet arranged in seven skies).

Day 3 and Day 4 : Earth's days. The Earth was a block of land and a space of ocean then it was separated into 7 continents and 4 oceans. Allah brought out from the Earth fresh water, precious and non-precious metals and every thing we find on or in earth today and need for sustenance and living.

Day 5 : Separating of the sky to 7 skies with their floors (7 Earths).

Day 6 : Completion of Creation. Creating every being in each sky (Angels) and creating Heavenly bodies (Sun, Moon,Stars). Then Man was created , Adam (pbuh).
