The Quran tells us, the Earth was “spread” [79:30]. In this verse (Ayat), in the original Arabic, the word “daha” is used. It comes from the root word “dahv” which means: “to spread.” Scientifically this is accurate. The spin of the Earth over the course of millions of years has caused the earth to spread out. In Scientific terms, “rotational flattening” has given the earth a spheroid-oblate kind of shape.
