Lesson # 857 - God created the heavens and the earth in six days
Lesson # 857 from the Noble Quran
God created the heavens and the earth in six days
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse –54a of 206, Section
– 7 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
Lo! Your Lord is
Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days, then mounted He the
Throne. He covereth the night with the day, which is in haste to follow it,
and hath made the sun and the moon and the stars subservient by His Command.
His verily is all creation and commandment.
description has already been being stated that everybody will know after death
that his/her Lord is Allah Almighty and He had sent down His Messengers (peace
be upon Them) along with His Scriptures (the Word) for the guidance of human
being. That all was correct and true, whatever the Messengers (peace be upon
Them) said and whichever was written in the Scriptures. But believing at that
time (in the Day of Resurrection) will not be useful.
Those people will
be kept in the Garden for dwelling, who recognized their Lord and obeyed Him in
the world, whereas those who were disobedient, will be sent in the Fire of the Hell.
With effect from this Section, which description begins, that is: How to
recognize our God in this world?
commands: look at the heavens, the earth, the day, the night, the moon, the sun,
and the stars, and think that: How the system of this world is set up in order,
established and organized in the best manner? Has it been established itself?
No! Nothing can
happen itself. A Creator of all these things, keeping them under an established
system properly and completing them step by step, slowly and gradually, exists,
that is One - Allah Almighty, Whom we can’t see today with human eye.
His Tokens and Signs, we can understand with sense and wisdom that He exists
and certainly He is Existing. These entire heavens and the earth, created from
the matter by Him, were completed after a long time and were set up at their proper
The term of
creating these things was six days, however those were not the days, which are determined
by the sun, but measuring scale of those days is something else. The Day, the night,
the sun, the moon and the stars appeared slowly and gradually. Measuring of the
days, when the skies and the earth were created, does not depend on them.
regular movements of these entire things depend on the Command of Allah
Almighty. From them the days and the nights come running one after one, and
these all are obedient and submissive to the Commands of Allah Almighty. We should
know our Creator by meditating in all these things and believe in Him unseen,
so that we may be saved from His wrath of the Day of Resurrection.
