Salafiyyah, as I have said before, not only has the problems that I outlined in a recent article; but it also has issues within itself.
I do not know if Muhammad ibn `Abdul Wahhab and the other gurus of Salafiyyah from his sons and grandsons definitively taught that the Earth did not move and the sun did and revolved around the Earth, but we know that this was taught by Ibn Baz, is being taught by his successor Salih ibn Fawzan Al-Fawzan as well as another Salafi rock star by the name of Bandar al-Khaibari.
Never mind the astronauts and cosmonauts, one of whom was a Muslim who have been in space, docked at space stations and are capable of seeing the Earth move. They lie! You follow the Salafi manhaj and focus on the evidence that the Earth is flat!
Never mind the facts these men experienced. Never mind some of the great commentators of the past who confirmed that the Earth was moving. No…forget them. If you follow Salafiyyah in its’ madness, then you will have to follow it when it denies basic physics, the findings of scientists – Muslim and otherwise – along with other data.
Furthermore, no one teaches that the sun sits stationary in its’ place. Rather, the sun is moving as well. This is unless you believe that the 69 moon landing and the other 9 thereafter were false as well. I suppose footage from Hubble and all the space walks count for nothing (some say that they were filmed in the Arizona or Nevada desert, even though these people have never compared the rocks or even been there to know the terrain or these two states and that of the moon and the difference between diorite crystals and those found in Arizona and Nevada)
As for Bandar Al-Khaibari, in his scintillating brilliance, he even explains that if the Earth is moving and you are flying in a plane and it goes still that China will be coming “right at you” If you keep flying towards China when the Earth is moving, then you will never reach there.
Why? Because the Earth is moving. Is that clear? Yes, he asks the crowd to confer.
If you follow this cult slavishly (as well as some misguided automatons among some morbid Sunnis that “Whoever claims the sun goes around the Earth and not otherwise is an unbeliever”), then you are subject to whatever else these spiritual paedophiles and religious pimps unleash on you. No wonder atheism is growing with such prevalence among the Salafi clan. This is utter chicanery.
Get back to the original family of the Sunni tradition handed down, a way of thinking, critical analysis and scientific method. Your mind deserves it.
