Shape of the Earth
“And the earth, moreover, hath He made egg shaped.”
(Al Quran Chapter 79 Verses 30)
In early times, people believed that the earth was flat. For centuries, men were afraid to venture out too far, for fear of falling off the edge
It was only in 1597 when Sir Francis Drake sailed around the earth and proved that the earth is spherical in shape.
But The Quran had already told the exact spherical shape of the Earth about a 1000 Years earlier than that.
The word used in above verse DAHAH literary means an egg and it is specifically referred to the Egg of an Ostrich.
That resembles the exact shape of the Earth.
WAS IT KNOWN 1400 YEARS AGO WHEN QURAN WAS REVEALED, NO!
