[Q 287] Is Earth Round or Flat in Islamic View 


According to Islam, is the world round or flat?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


There is no explicit declaration in the Quran or Hadith that I am aware of regarding this matter.

However, islamic experts in the science of astronomy and scholars have stated the theory that the Earth is round. For instance, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan Rahimahullah writes in Fatawa Rizwiya, :

“زمین کروی یعنی گول ہے”

Translation : “The Earth is spherical, meaning round.”
