00:00:01--> 00:00:03

Previously the human beings we thought

00:00:05--> 00:00:07

that the earth on which we live in the slide.

00:00:09--> 00:00:18

It was in 15 177. So Francis Drake, when he sailed around the Earth, he proved that the Earth was spherical.

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

Quran mentions

00:00:23--> 00:00:28

instead of man, chap number 31 was number 29. It is Allah subhana wa Taala

00:00:30--> 00:00:34

who merges the night into day and merges the day into night?

00:00:37--> 00:01:05

alum Tara under law, you will need to laugh in a hurry. Religion not often lately. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who merges the night into the day and merges the day into the night. Merging is a gradual and slow process the night slowly and gradually merges into the day and the day slowly and gradually merged into the night. If the Earth was flat. There had been a sudden change, it would have been a gradual process of night motion, the day and day emerging to the night.

00:01:06--> 00:01:11

Allah gives a similar message. And sorry Azuma chapter number 39. Was number five.

00:01:12--> 00:01:14

It is Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:01:15--> 00:01:36

Who overlaps the night and to the day and overlaps the day and to the night. That epic word used your S Guevara which means to overlap of oil. So the Quran says it is Allah subhana wa Taala who overlaps or coils the night unto the day and overlaps or coils the day into the night

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

coiling the word Kawara is used how you coil a turban onto your head.

00:01:45--> 00:01:55

So, this overlapping and coiling of the night and to the day and the day and to the night is only possible if the shape of the Earth was spherical, if it was flat it was not possible.

00:01:56--> 00:01:58

And Allah for the safe in for another

00:01:59--> 00:02:07

chap number 79 was number 30 We have made the earth as an expanse and we have made the earth X shaped

00:02:09--> 00:02:32

what are the brothers olika what are the brothers olika means and then we made the earth X shape. One of the meanings of the HA is an expense and the other meaning of the Arabic word the haha It is derived from the Arabic would do yeah which means na. And we know today that the earth on which we live is not completely round like a ball

00:02:33--> 00:02:38

is geo spherical in shape. It is flattened from the pole and bulging from the center.

00:02:40--> 00:02:41

And adipic What do ya

00:02:42--> 00:02:55

doesn't mean a normal egg? It specifically means the egg of an ostrich and if we analyze the shape of the egg of an ostrich it too is just radical in shape. Imagine

00:02:56--> 00:03:07

the Glorious Quran mentions 1400 years ago that the shape of the Earth is geophysical. It does not say spherical only it specifically mentions like that of an ostrich
