Chapter 13 Verse 2
Original text Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that ye can see
Problem One of the cosmological misconceptions at the time was that the heavens were held up by pillars. At first glance Quran seems to be addressing this myth, but in adding the words that you can see still allows for the possibility of invisible pillars.This is additionally troublesome as The Book of Enoch[1] describes how the heavens are held up from the Earth by the four winds of the North/East/South/West. The Quran could just as easily be stating that the firmament of the heavens is held up by invisible pillars.

“I also beheld the four winds, which bear up the earth, and the firmament of heaven.”
Book of Enoch. Chapter 18 Verse 3

Solution Remove the text that you can see
New text Allah is He Who made the heavens without any pillars
