As-Salaamu AlaiKum wa Rahmatullah,

This is quite similar to a point about Allaah being above the seven heavens that Shaykh al-Albaani (rahimahullah) quotes Abu Muhammad al-Juwayni rahimahullah (d.438 AH).

Abu Muhammad (rahimahullah) discusses the earth is inside the upper world,
and the heavens cover it from all sides.
And the lower part of the world is the inner round part of the earth and is its centre.

Then he (Abu Muhammad) says,
"And the evidence for that occurs when we take a traveller who travels upon the surface of the earth from the direction of the East to the direction of the West.
And as long as he is travelling, he is travelling by foot upon the surface, all the way until he comes back to his starting point,
and he cuts into it and looks at that which is below him, then he will realize that the entire time, the earth was below him and the heavens were above him.

So the heavens that he percieves to be below the earth are actually above the earth, not below it.
This is because the heavens are above the Earth in essence..."
(the part underlined shows that the earth was considered spherical by the muslims, even back in the early centuries).

  Asalaamaleikum wa Rahmatullah,

Could someone give me the reference of what Sheikh al Albanee apparently said
regarding the Earth orbiting as I read another version of this speech which
seemed to be more complete. I must say that I only read an English
translation of it.
The source is apparently: silsilat ul-hudaa wa noor - tape no. 435 & 436
