The so-called “Flat Earthers” today still believe that the Earth is flat – when even ancient civilisations understood the Earth to be “egg-shaped” – i.e. not a perfect sphere – this egg-shaped Earth is described in the Holy Quran as follows:
Quran 39:5: He is the One Who has created the heavens and earth with a definite purpose. He rolls the night over the day, and rolls the day over the night. And He has subjected the sun and the moon, each running along its course for a term appointed. Is He not the Almighty, the Absolver of Imperfections?
[Yukawwir = ‘He rolls’ comes from the word Kurah = Ball. In 79:30 an additional point is given that the earth is egg-shaped with its north and south poles compressed. This was unknown and even impossible to know in the 7th century.]
79:27 What! Are you the more difficult to create or is the heaven that He built?
79:28 He raised high its canopy, and shaped it perfect.
79:29 And He made dark its night and brings out its splendor.
79:30 And after that, He made the earth shoot out from the Cosmic Nebula and spread it out oval (flattened at the poles – an oblate spheroid).
79:31 And produced from it its own water and pasture.
79:32 And the mountains He firmly fixed.

Contrary to mainstream scientific understanding, the Quran explains how ancient civilisations may have been more advanced (i.e. technologically) than us:
30:8 Do they not reflect on themselves? God has not created the heavens and earth, and all that is between them, but for a specific purpose and for an appointed term. Yet, a great many people deny that they are destined to meet their Sustainer.
30:9 (Reflecting on your own existence, the Universe, and on history can show you the truth.) Have they not, then, travelled in the land and seen what happened in the end to those who lived before them? They were more powerful than these are, and they left a stronger impact on the earth, and built it up better than these are doing. And to them came their Messengers with all evidence of the truth. It was not God Who wronged them, but it was they who used to wrong their own ‘self’.
30:10 Then, evil was the end of those who did evil, because they denied the revelations of God and ridiculed them.
30:11 (All this happens to communities according to Divine laws that are operational in the entire Universe.) He initiates the creation, and then repeats it. Ultimately, all of you will be returned to Him.
30:12 And on the Day when the Hour comes, those who have committed crimes against humanity, will be struck with despair.
30:13 Their ‘idols’ will not be able to stand up for them, rather, they will reject one another.
30:14 On the Day the Hour comes, they will part company. And people will be sorted out.
30:15 As for those who attained belief and fulfilled the needs of others, they will be made happy in a Meadow of delight listening to beautiful music.
