  • Can someone check if this Makes any sense.
     OP - March 04, 2018, 01:31 PM

    I was arguing with a Muslim regarding the Quranic verses 36:37-40. I claimed the Quran uses the geocentric approach because verses 36:38 states that the sun goes to its stopping point/resting place. The other person them immediately said that this is referring to the lifetime/lifespan of the sun. I feel this doesn't make any sense Because when we look at the verses before and after, his interpretation doesn't make sense coz we see the verses speaking about a sign, that is the "Night" And what has the night got to do with the lifespan of the sun?  Do you think his interpretation is out of context?  what are your thoughts on his interpretation? 

    36:37 - And a sign for them is the night. We remove from it [the light of] day, so they are
    in darkness.

    36:38 - And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

    36:39 - And the moon - We have determined for it phases, until it returns [appearing] like the old date stalk.

    36:40 - It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming.

    I think he's making his own context. The best bit is:

    "It is not allowable for the sun to reach the moon, nor does the night overtake the day, but each, in an orbit, is swimming."

    Hey Mo, we just had an eclipse.

    `But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
     `Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: `we're all mad here. I'm mad.  You're mad.'
     `How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
     `You must be,' said the Cat, `or you wouldn't have come here.'
