Edwin hubble said universe is ever expanding in 1400's but Allah said this in ch 51 v 47, well it was very difficult for an illiterate man to say about universe but he was the best man in history of mankind, we send blessings on him daily and we hope that he will intercede for us on hereafter.

Greetings NABA,

I hate to keep debunking what you post, because I know how strongly you believe, but...
51:47 We have built the heaven with might, and We it is Who make the vast extent (thereof).    
51:48 And the earth have We laid out, how gracious is the Spreader (thereof)!
51:47 only says that the Creator created the vast expanse of the universe.  it doesn't say anything about its continued expansion.

and what about 51:48?  How is this to be understood?  Did Muhammad (through the Creator) know that the earth was round or did he think it was flat?  Some would say by this verse that he believed the earth was flat.  Personally I do not think it says one thing, one way or the other.  To me it only says that the Creator provided us with the beautiful earth.
We must not read more into what is written, than what is there, must we?

Salaam and blessings to you,
Caringheart

It depends on how u take the meaning, according to some translators of ch 51 v 47 they present the line with this Allah says we are its expander, Allah say about geospherical shape of earth in ch 79 v 30.

Greetings NABA,

79:30 And after that He spread the earth,

just says the same thing as,

51:48 And the earth have We laid out, how gracious is the Spreader (thereof)!

nothing about the shape of earth.

Regarding 51:47, even if it is translated to say, 'We are its expander',
this still just says that the Creator created the expanse of the universe.  It still does not say anything about its continued expansion.

Salaam,
CLynn
