    Please show me where the Qur'an says the earth is flat. No one in the Islamic world believes the earth is flat, no scholar will ever say such a stupid thing.
    Actually many people in the Islamic world believe in a flat earth. They base their views on verses like this;

    And the earth We have spread out
    (like a carpet); set thereon mountains firm and immovable; and produced therein all kinds of things in due balance.
    The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia (until he died in 1999) Sheikh ibn Baz believed the earth was flat. You say nobody believes that, but here is a debate on Iraqi TV discussing whether the earth is flat

    It's not a joke.


    You said camel urine is a very beneficial medicinal drink right?

    So I'm asking how you know this? Through your mother or what uneducated 7th century war lords said?

    Fox News usually comes to mind when it comes to anti-Islam/Muslim propaganda
    If an event is reported on Fox News, does that mean that it didn't happen?

    If it originated in Scotland we'd be able to call it Irny Brew.
    Brewd in Scotlin, frum murdurs.

    (An old Irn Bru ad used to say, in a Scots accent... "Brewed in scotland, from girders", in case anyone was wondering) :getmecoat:

    Shaykh ibn Baz never said such thing. This is his fatwa:

    "According to the people of knowledge the Earth is round. Indeed, Ibn Hazm and other scholars have declared that there is consensus on this matter among the people of knowledge.This means that all of the surface of the Earth is connected together so that the form of the planet is like a sphere.

    Nevertheless, Allah has spread out the Earth's surface in relation to us, and He has placed upon it firm mountains, the seas, and life as a mercy for us. For this reason, Allah said: "And (do they not look) at the Earth, how it was spread out flat (sutihat)." [Sûrah al-Ghâshiyah:20]

    Therefore, the Earth has been made flat for us in regards to our relationship to it to facilitate our lives upon it and our comfort. The fact that it is round does not prevent that its surface has been made flat for us. This is because something that is round and very large, then its surface will become very vast or broad, having a flat appearance to those who are upon it."

    However people love to start rumours like these. As you can see he never said the Earth is flat.

    One of the funniest parts of that debate is when the pro-flat earth guy starts citing as proof of the earth's flatness is the fact then when you are standing on the shore and you see a ship coming towards you, at first you can only see the top of the mast.

    That evidences the exact opposite! :lol: That is excellent evidence of the curvature of the earth, not its flatness.

    Earthquakes are caused by women who dress provocatively and tempt people into promiscuity, a prayer leader has controversially claimed.Hojatoleslam Kazim Sadeghi who is a senior cleric in Tehran made the wild accusation during morning prayers.In a video posted on YouTube he says: "When promiscuity spreads, earthquakes increase.""There is no way other than taking refuge in religion and adapting ourselves to Islamic behavior," he added.Sadeghi was last year appointed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei as a substitute prayer leader in Tehran - the second most powerful position behind Khamenei who is the official prayer leader.Iran has suffered greatly from earthquakes, with one in the city of Bam killing tens of thousands in 2003.

    That was a later fatwa. The sheikh's views on this were very well known in Saudi Arabia as he had denounced Riyadh University in the 1960s for teaching the "falsehood" that the earth is a spheroid

    He only changed his views in the 1980s when he spoke to a Saudi prince who had gone up in the space shuttle

    Islam is the best religion for scientific discoveries and muslims are the best of people as the Qur'an said.

    No, there is no fatwa in which he claims the earth is flat. This was a widely spread rumour, and it was said that he also called those who believe the earth is round, 'kuffar', which again is false.

    believe since a couple of goons say we shall kill all,
    It was not a couple of goons it was a Doctor attending a Mosque in the UK and he was 'warmly received' by the audience

    If his comment are not the norm why did not one single muslim at the event complain or challenge his abhorrent comments?

    Many Islamists often claim this as a kind of backstop; i.e. "It doesn't matter our laws are so harsh because the four person rule means no-one will ever actually be in that situation".
    Remember that it is four witnesses - or a confession.

    We all know how easy it is to obtain a confession. Especially in certain countries!

    Same-sex marriages were just legalised in the UK in 2014. Before that it was illegal. How horrific
    Hardly "horrific", but unacceptable, yes.

    And now it has been changed.
    How long until homosexuality is no longer a sin in Islam?
    A year? Two? Ten? Any idea?
