I’m always surprised to hear Christians use this type of argument as they too believe in the unseen. If Christians are consistent then that means they would be arguing against teachings in the Bible.
An important video showing us how to refute the Atheist claim (also some Christians use it uncritically) that there is a scientific error in the Quran (claiming the Quran teaches the stars are missiles hurled at demons/devils/jinn). Don’t be fooled by this Atheistic type of argument. Muslims do not believe it’s the stars themselves which veer from their course to attack the Shayateen. On top of this, how can anybody say it’s a scientific error when the Shayateen (demons) cannot be seen – this is about the unseen – it’s not observable through scientific means. Watch the video to learn how to refute this argument quckly and simply.
And verily We have adorned the lowest heaven, the one closest to the earth, with lamps, with stars, and made them missiles against the devils, should they [attempt to] listen by stealth, in which case a meteor of fire detaches itself from the star, just like a brand is taken from a fire, and either kills that jinn or deprives him of his senses: it is not that the star itself is displaced from its position; and We have prepared for them the chastisement of the Blaze, the ignited Fire.
Tafsir Jalalayn 67:5
The jinn say: And we made for the heaven, we desired to listen by stealth, but we found it filled with mighty guards, from among the angels, and meteors, scorching stars: this was at the time of the sending of the Prophet (s). And we used to, that is to say, before his Mission, sit in [certain] places therein to listen in; but anyone listening now will find a meteor lying in wait for him, aimed at him, ready to strike him.
Tafsir Jalalayn 72:8-9
