The meaning you have taken that the earth orbits the sun and that Allah Taala only restrains it to the extent that it does not move out of its orbit, can this be shown from any Sahabi, Tabi, Imam, Tafsir, or any Islamic book where this is mentioned? Aoa brother, sorry for bumping a year old thread. What about this? Imam Alusi (d. 1317/1854) "And the philosopher of this age used to claim that the sun does not move at all and (they used to claim) that the moon moved in orbit around the earth. And the earth around the sun. And we have heard that they changed their opinion. So they claimed that the sun moves (according to) another planet. And this indicates that they don't have a proof for their first claim - as the one who used to support them said. And the apparent is that their condition today and even tomorrow is the same as their condition from yesterday. And we follow the apparent meanings (of the verses, I guess) until there is an absolute proof for the opposite and then we will lean for ta'wiil and it's door is wide"[Ruh al-Ma`ani] (a) despite holding a contrary position, Imam Alusi acknowledges that if the evidence of those who state the sun is stationary is established, then that is the position that will be adopted. (b) that the primary texts themselves allow for a sufficient scope of interpretation that would allow for such a position.
