You might want to read that hadith more carefully.<quoted text>
that is another Hadith describing the end of times, when the sun will rise from the west , its considered to be the greatest and the last sign of the end of times.
"but it will be ordered to return whence it has come and so it will rise in the west "
I think its scientifically accepted that someday the sun will appear as its rising from the west , as the earth will start to rotate in a reverse direction.
Narated By Abu Dhar : The Prophet asked me at sunset, "Do you know where the sun goes (at the time of sunset)?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know better." He said, "It goes (i.e. travels) till it prostrates Itself underneath the Throne and takes the permission to rise again, and it is permitted and then (a time will come when) it will be about to prostrate itself but its prostration will not be accepted, and it will ask permission to go on its course but it will not be permitted, but it will be ordered to return whence it has come and so it will rise in the west. And that is the interpretation of the Statement of Allah: "And the sun Runs its fixed course For a term (decreed). that is The Decree of (Allah) The Exalted in Might, The All-Knowing." (36.38)
It states the sun goes and prostrates itself under Allah's throne at sunset and then has to be permitted to rise again. Please explain that.
As for the sun setting in the west, whilst the earth's rotation is slowing down (due to the moon and tidal forces), once it stops there's no force there to make it rotate the other way. Also it will take about 50 billion years. As the Earth only has about 5 billion years before it's destroyed by the sun it will never rise in the west.
