Why the Bible and the quran say the Earth is flat ?
Cuz they are from God and God knows best

The Bible says the earth is a sphere - round. Instead of listening to other people, why not read the Bible for yourself. Start with the Book of John in the New Testament.

"Are you a more difficult creation or is the heaven? Allah constructed it.
He raised its ceiling and proportioned it.
And He darkened its night and extracted its brightness.
And after that He spread the earth.
He extracted from it its water and its pasture,
And the mountains He set firmly" the Holy Quran.

The Bible doesn't say that the Earth is flat. That's your interpretation of figurative language. Now grow up and use the brain God gave you.

The Bible doesn’t teach the earth is flat. Isaiah 40:22 reads: “There is One who is dwelling above the circle of the earth.” When this text says that God sits above the circle of the earth, this harmonizes with the fact that the earth is circular, viewed from all directions, but that also makes it globular in form. The Hebrew word hhug here is defined in A Concordance of the Hebrew and Chaldee Scriptures by B. Davidson as “circle, sphere.”
This same Hebrew word for circle is found in Job 22:14, where the New World Translation says of God: “On the vault of heaven he walks about.” Now, we know that the vault of heaven as seen from the earth is hemispherical, or like a half globe. The other half of the hemispherical vault of heaven extends below the earth upon which we stand and hence cannot be seen directly by us. In harmony with this fact, when Isaiah 40:22 says that God sits above the circle of the earth, then the word “circle” here is in the same Hebrew sense as that found in Job 22:14.
Thus it follows that the word “circle” in Isaiah 40:22 must mean something that is rotund, just as the appearance of the sky viewed from the earth is rotund and like a vault

If you believe the Earth to be flat, then you deny reality. If you deny reality then you are just an idiot. Period.

The Bible has been misinterpreted at a few verses that say things like this, in Isaiah 40:22 that God ‘sits above the circle of the earth’, which means that the Earth has a ‘circle’ not ‘is a circle’. A circle also has a hole in the middle. Isaiah would have seen the absurdity of calling the Earth a circle when (if he really believed in a flat Earth) he could have called it a disc.
The Hebrew word chug – translated ‘circle’ or ‘circuit’ in our English Bibles – can mean variously ‘circle, arch, vault or compass’. Like our own vague word ‘round’, it can be used to indicate both two and three dimensional objects. Almost certainly, Isaiah meant ‘vault’ and was referring not to the Earth at all but to the heavens. The God who sits above the ‘vault’ of the earth (that is, who is higher than the heavens) also ‘stretches out the heavens like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in’. You are reading poetical phenomenology, not early Greek science!
Furthermore Job 9:9 and Job 26:7 talk about a southern and a northern sky. But the real damage on this subject has been caused by mischief-makers out to destabilize Christianity. They have infiltrated some Christian groups to make it look as if Christians hate science and are silly. But they do it craftily, trying to build a plausible case for a flat Earth. I met one of them years ago - an atheist, who let slip that he was a member of The Flat Earth Society. When I expressed surprise, he hastily excused himself saying it was merely "a debating society", implying that the name of the society was just a joke. From then on, he never spoke about biblical matters, as we had done before. Well, here's what Bible mockers need to know about this group:
“The Flat Earth Society is an active organization currently led by a Virginian man named Daniel Shenton. Though Shenton believes in evolution and global warming, he and his hundreds, if not thousands, of followers worldwide also believe that the Earth is a disc that you can fall off of.”12
So next time an evolutionist claims Christians are ‘flat-earthers’, point out that the leading flat-earther is one of his fellow evolutionists! https://creation.com/flat-earth-myth
It's time thinking people woke up to the plots afoot designed to discredit the Bible, and Christians. If we just stuck to what the Bible actually says, using basic language comprehension and considering context, instead of allowing loopy people to interpret it for us, we would all be much the wiser.Source(s): Who Made God? pp 72-74, Edgar Andrews EP Books 2009 12Wolchover, N., Ingenious ‘Flat Earth’ Theory Revealed In Old Map, Live Science, 23 June 2011.

The Bible does not state anywhere that the Earth is flat. The Qur'an is a whole other story.
