Did Allah create universe in 6 or 8 days? – Ask A Muslim

Did Allah create universe in 6 or 8 days?

Slowly slow a little bit o skeptical man!..

The three words [measured. created. completed] are different from each other clearly..

Firstly, about creation: (created the earth in two days)

Second one speaks about the measuring and determination of nourishment and foods (and as the sustenance in four days)

Third one, the terminology is talking about completion of the ( seven heavens in two days).

So, It is not permissible to combine these three things and say they have one meaning maybe you do this because you are accustomed to trinity or whatever. Lol

Because each number has a different meaning.

Therefore the Quranic Ayats (Verses) here do not contain only one meaning but speaks about three distinctive meanings of
1. Creation, when saying: (created the earth in two days),

2. The measuring of the sustenance of the land, which has been in four days..this has nothing to do with the duration of the creation (and as the sustenance in four days), because the creation of the earth has been in two days from the days of Allah (it may be equal to billions of years of our day today).

3. Completion.

the Aya that talked about heaven, does not mention the creation of the heavens, but states God’s completion of the sky to become the seven heavens during two days (completed them seven heavens in two days)

👉🏼 meaning that the
🎈sky🎈 existed and created in advance and the
are to separate the
from each other.

Thus, there is no contradiction in this and other sacred Quranic texts.

In order to emphasize that the Almighty Allah when he speaks of creation speaks of measuring of sustenance as if they were two separate things, that creation is not the same as determination or measuring, whether in meaning or order.

Creation is first and then the measuring and organization are Second.

as the Almighty said:

((and created everything Has created each thing and determined it with [precise] determination)).
● [Al-Furqan: 2].

He said of the creation of man: ((From a sperm-drop He created him; so He determined (made him according to a measure) him.)) [Abs: 19].

Thus, creation is first and then comes completion and thirdly organization and making the creature configuration appropriate to what’s created.

🎀Thus we deduce the following for you:

👉🏼The earth created in two days.

👉🏼Earth establishment, mandate and mountains are created in other two days as a completing number not an additional one.

So far, we have four days

2 for the earth creation and 2 for its mandate and mountains. or say the measurement.

Example to understand

It is as if you say I went to France in 15 days.

I spent 10 days to reach Italy and then spent 5 other days to reach France 5.

The meaning is (in the completion of 15 days I arrived to France).

The heavens in 2 days

The same said by Allah subhanaho wa taala

in this Aya

Say, “Do you indeed disbelieve in He who Created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds.”

■These are 2 days😊

And He placed on the earth firmly set mountains over its surface, and He blessed it and determined therein its [creatures’] sustenance in four days without distinction – for [the information] of those who ask.

👆🏼i.e: Completed its measurements sustenance and mandate

■That’s 4 days now😎

Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, “Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion.” They said, “We have come willingly.”

And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

■Now 6 days yeah! 😉

This is because heavens and earth are created in two days


So as you have seen in the Aya He completed them not only created..

Sum up:

The overall of universe organization, creation and measurement are 6 days not 8 as some might count falsely.

And Allah knows best

That was the response to this

Quran 41:9 Is it that you deny Him who Created the earth in Two Days ?

◇◇2 days◇◇

Quran 41:10

He set on the (earth) Mountains standing firm high above it, and bestowed blessing on the earth, and measured therein all things to give them nourishment in due proportion, in FOUR DAYS…

◇◇4 days◇◇

Quran 41:12
He completed them (heavens) as seven firmaments in Two days and …

◇◇6 days◇◇


Now we do the math:

2(for earth)
4(for nourishment)

No + for heavens because Allah says
“Who created the heavens and earth in six days ”

So don’t try to add the + here because the heavens are embedded in the six days

Add to this read our research on the accuracy of Quran on such days and how Quran provides the exact number of speed light
