Beginning Of Creation Understandings Of The Sunset

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have read Sahih al-Bukhari "Beginning of Creation"


And it poses the question where does the sun go?


In the explanation it states that the sun requests the permission to rise again and after a time it will be denied to rise and will instead rise in the west.


In todays time we have advanced considerably and now realize that the earth itself is spinning as well as revolving around the sun.


What is the explanation the prophets misunderstanding? Did God give him this poetry to encourage his understanding of the truth?


Or is this an example of incorrect logic? is it the same as those who had believed the earth was flat?

It goes without saying that we do not believe in Sahih al-Bukhari, and we do not consider it to be authentic. It is however highly regarded in Sunni Islam as the best book after the Qur'an.
