Regarding Q86:67, I have not seen any translation that matches biological facts. They all imply lower abdomen or lower back,  well 'north' of the actual locstion of production. 

Regarding the lamps, I'm talking about Q 67:5 and Q 37:6-10. It mentions that the stars are lamps, that they occupy the lowest dome, and that they are sometimes launched as an attack against demons. I suppose the usual translation is 'firmament' rather than 'dome,' but either way it states that the stars are affixed to the lowest of 7 solid layers (dome, ceiling, firmament,  etc). 

Hi you must choose another translations you are reading completely wrong translation or have bad interpretation from it , I never see such bad translation that resulted to this conclusion by you 

Then He set them up as seven heavens in two days, and revealed [to the angels] in each heaven its ordinance. We have adorned the lowest heaven with lamps, and guarded them. That is the ordaining of the All-mighty, the All-knowing. (12)

The sun setting in water is confirmed by Muhammad in a hadith narrated by Abu Dharr. I'm not sure if Shia accept him or not but I would think so. From what I have read he was a close companion to Muhammad. 

it’s not sun , in all narrations it mentiones as throne of Allah that  our sun is like as atom inside it

though Muhammad couldn't know that when he spoke them. If you can't trust a man to give you truth about that which can be verified, why trust him with that which cannot (and which is infinitely more important)?

You must read about Miraj (Isra)  from Shia sources that Prophet Muhammad (pbu) saw whole of universe in his ascension to Allah / God that is very important belief in Shia Islam

As an example that you can imagine it in a glimpse  ,the Miraj (Isra) like start part like as when gray Gandalf turned to white Gandalf that it shows his experience in a glimpse in movie but Prophet Muhammad (pbu) journey was more detailed & full of description

Muslims identify 'Allah' as the *name* of God, while Arab Christians use this as a *title* for God.  Christians of ALL languages acknowledge that the actual name God originally used for himself in Hebrew is Yahweh, which means "I Am" (Exodus 3). So yes, Arab Christians refer to Yahweh by the title Allah, just like English-speaking Christians refer to Yahweh by the title God.

They aren’t two different gods. ilah means God. Al means the. Allah means the God. Allah is the God of all Abrahamic religions. Maybe you call him Yahweh, and have a different religion, but we believe in the same God In different ways and different scriptures.
