A lot of people have already proven that Allah thinks the earth is flat in Quran and hadiths, using, for example
verse 20:53. Here I just want to show it once more using indirect proofs from logical reasoning.
Hadith Qudsi 35: The Islamic authority Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said:
Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?
It was related by al-Bukhari (also by Muslim, Malik, at-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud).
In a version by the scholar Muslim, the Hadith ends with the words:And thus He continues till [the light of] dawn shines.
Hadith Qudsi is believed to be from Allah and it is said that it uses only Muhammad's own words, so it is a revelation from Allah like Quran. This particular hadith says that every night Allah hangs out in earth's atmosphere at a certain hour, while during the rest of the 24 hour period, Allah is somewhere else, not in the earth's atmosphere.
Since the earth is round, every place on earth has a different hour. So when Allah is floating above India at 3 am for example, Allah is not in the earth's atmosphere for the people in the continent of America because it is broad daylight in America. Allah is not at India's sky at all for the Americans. This is not possible.
How do we solve the problem? Allah's presence in the earth's atmosphere at a certain hour every day is possible only if every place on earth has the same hour, which means the earth must be flat according to Allah.
The second proof comes from Allah's order for people to pray toward the qiblat direction in verse 2:144.
PICKTHAL: We have seen the turning of thy face to heaven (for guidance, O Muhammad). And now verily We shall make thee turn (in prayer) toward a qiblah which is dear to thee. So turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship, and ye (O Muslims), wheresoever ye may be, turn your faces (when ye pray) toward it. Lo! Those who have received the Scripture know that (this revelation) is the Truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do.
For people who are located far from Mekah, their qiblat could be somewhere down toward the ground. For example, people in the Solomon Islands in the Pacific Ocean will have to pray vertically downward to the center of the earth because the Solomon Islands are almost exactly on the other side of the earth from Mekah . A normal prayer in any direction will point to somewhere in the sky, not Mekah. In fact, people in the Solomon Islands always blaspheme against Allah, because their do their ‘droppings’ toward qiblat when they answer the call of nature.
The World According to Allah
Allah must have thought the earth is flat, otherwise he wouldn't have told people around the world to pray to Mekah.
The third proof is very simple. Allah must have thought the earth was flat when he ordered people in 2:187 to fast when there is enough light to enable people to see things. That means any Muslim on the North or South Pole will die if s/he follows Allah's order in summer when there is 24 hours of sunshine.
PICKTHAL: It is made lawful for you to go in unto your wives on the night of the fast. They are raiment for you and ye are raiment for them. Allah is Aware that ye were deceiving yourselves in this respect and He hath turned in mercy toward you and relieved you. So hold intercourse with them and seek that which Allah hath ordained for you, and eat and drink until the white thread becometh distinct to you from the black thread of the dawn. Then strictly observe the fast till nightfall and touch them not, but be at your devotions in the mosques. These are the limits imposed by Allah, so approach them not. Thus Allah expoundeth His revelation to mankind that they may ward off (evil).
Allah must have thought that every body on the earth had the same period of dark and bright periods on the 24 hour cycle, which is only possible if the earth is flat.
So Allah has made a big mistake because we know the earth is round, except for some of Allah's faithful believers, like the blind genius who had memorized Quran, Shaikh Abd-al-Aziz Ibn Abd-Allah Ibn Baaz, who thought the earth was flat in the 1990s, and who said that whoever thought differently was considered as a kafir.
