AlSalam Alikom,

I'd like to know if there's a hadeeth from AhulBayt (AS) revealing how the Earth is rotating with relation to the Sun. Is Earth really revolving around the Sun or is the other way around.

I read that the first that came up with the idea that everything revolve around the Sun is Copernicus who is a Pagan believer (Sun worshiper ), so in that regard (to his own belief ) everything should worship the Sun by revolving around it including Earth that embrace Bayt Allah.

Was there any work done by our astrophysicist  scholars ? Before this guy came along everyone believed that Earth was the center of the universe. From the Islamic point of view that seems to be the correct path.

Wa aleykumsalaam,

We have hadeeth which says Sun and moon are fixed to it place and does not leave his place, while earth has its own orbit to follow, I quoting excerpt from long hadeeth:

Muhammad ibn al-Hasan ibn Ahmad ibn al-Walid (RA) said: Muhammad ibn al-Hasan al-Saffar said on the authority of Ibrahim ibn Hashim, on the authority of Muhammad ibn
Hammad, on the authority of al-Hasan ibn Ibrahim, on the authority of Yunus ibn `Abd al-Rahman, on the authority of Yunus ibn Ya`qub that `Ali ibn Mansur reported to me that Hisham ibn al-Hakam said: 

"...Abu `Abd Allah said: O man! There is no authority for the one who knows over the one who knows not. Likewise, there is no authority for the ignorant over the learned. O my Egyptian brother! Understand this from me! We never doubt in Allah. Do you not see the sun and the moon, and the night and day? They have recourse, but they do not make mistakes. They come and they go. They are both compelled. There is not place for them except their own place. If they both had the power to leave, and not come back, then why do they come back? If they both are not compelled, then why does the night change into the day, and the day into night? By Allah, O Egyptian brother, they are both compelled to continue their routine. Surely, their Compeller is Wiser and Greater than they are! The atheist said: “You are right.”

Abu `Abd Allah (AS) then said: O Egyptian brother! They way you atheists reason is wrong. Time does not bring anything into existence. If the passage of time can take then away, then why does it not return them? And if the passage of time can return them, when why does it not take them away? They are compelled, O Egyptian brother! The sky has been raised, and the earth has been set down. Why is it that the sky does not collide with the earth? And why is it that the earth does not collide with the sky? Why is it that the earth does not go out of its orbit? Who holds them together and who holds together what is between them?..."

I have checked the hadeeth, there seems to be misinterpretation. The notion of going and coming means they are in motion and not sitting in one place.

Why does earth not go out of its orbit ?

It doesn't say that in Arabic, it says why earth doesnt get pushed down (crushed) from the weight on top.
