Interpretations of Quran are NOT the Quran
This Saudi cleric, in another part of his lecture, cites Quran to “prove” that the Sun rotates around the Earth, but he is, actually, INTERPRETING the Quran, or rather, citing old interpretations of Quran. The Quran says: “The Sun runs (or flows) towards where to it will settle”, but did the Quran say it runs “around the Earth”? No! The Quran does not mention the word “rotates” either. And does the sun move? Yes, we know that the sun moves, but with the other planets of the solar system round the center of our galaxy.
Note: the first part of the verse “The Sun runs” is clear, but the other part; “where to it will settle” can be interpreted in more than one way.
