AL-QUR'AN

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 has its north and south poles compressed. This was unknown and even impossible to know in the 7th century]

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). [Dahaha entails all the meanings rendered. 21:30, 41:11]
