And no question do they bring to thee but We reveal to thee the truth and the best explanation (thereof). 025.033

There are many numerical contradictions in the Quran. Can God make so much error in doing simple calculations?

How many days did it take to create Heavens and Earth?

007.054 Your Guardian-Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days,
010.003 Verily your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and the earth in six days,
011.007 He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days
025.059 He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between, in six days,

The above verses clearly state that God created the heaven and Allah created the heaven and the Earth in 6 days. But the verses below stated.

041.009 Say: Is it that ye deny Him Who created the earth in two Days?
041.010 He set on the (earth), mountains standing firm, high above it, and bestowed blessings on the earth, and measure therein all things to give them nourishment in due proportion, in four Days,
041.012 So He completed them as seven firmaments in two Days,

Now do the math: 2 (for earth) + 4 (for nourishment) + 2 (for heavens) = 8 days; and not 6 days

Similar mistakes you can see in the verse: Quran 004.011-012, and Quran 004:176 in inheritance law. In these verses one can see the total property after adding all distributed parties adds up more than the available property, i.e., totals become more than 1 which are: 1.125 and 1.25. How come? A gross mathematical errors, is not it?

Allah’s Days Equal to 1000 Years or 50,000 Years?

022.047 Yet they ask thee to hasten on the Punishment! But Allah will not fail in His Promise. Verily a Day in the sight of thy Lord is like a thousand years of your reckoning.
032.005 He rules (all) affairs from the heavens to the earth: in the end will (all affairs) go up to Him, on a Day, the space whereof will be (as) a thousand years of your reckoning.
070.004 The angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a Day the measure whereof is (as) fifty thousand years:

So, which one is it? Is the day of Allah equal to 1,000 earth years or 50,000 earth years?

    Hello :) May Peace be upon you.

    The first Holy Surah (22:47) above does clearly mention that one day according to Allah Almighty is worth 1000 years of ours. However, in Holy Surah (32:5), we see that the journey from the time our souls ascend to the time they arrive to their final destinations will take one thousand human years; “on a Day, the space whereof will (as) a thousand years…(32:5)”. In Holy Surahs (70:4-5) we see that Allah Almighty is referring to the day of judgment as a time period of 50 thousand years of ours. The phrase “in a Day the measure (70:4)” refers to the Day of Judgment, where our judgment will take 50 thousand human years to finish before the very last person of mankind enters either heaven or hell. The phrase “Day of Judgment” in Arabic doesn’t mean one day. It means multiple days (50,000 years).

    Note: (22:47) clearly mentions that one day from Allah Almighty equals one thousand years from us. (32:5, and 70:4) both talk about events that will take place, and those events will take a time length of many years of our time. The word “Day” in (32:5, and 70:4) means a time period, where the word “Day” in (22:47) means an actual day. This phrase does exist in Arabic and in many languages.

    Example: when a mother says to her child: “Insha’allah (If God is willing) the day will come when I see you become big and mature”. The word “day” in this sentence doesn’t mean a single day. It means an actual length or period of time.

    I hope this answers your second point; many people try to translate the Qur’an but fail to do so correctly; arabic is a language in which there are many many homonyms.

    I hope this has helped, God bless us all!

    With regards to the first point you made; it is a very very good point. However, as with the previous comment, there is much confusion about the quranic word “Thumma”. Less learned translators have translated that word to mean “then” when in actual fact, in quranic arabic it means “moreover” or “simultaneously”. We know through scientific discoveries and theories such as the Doppler Effect that the Big Bang is a real phenomenon. Interpreting this section of the qur’an in the manner you have done contradicts scientific proof and is in fact incorrect anyway. The Earth was created in two days, and in 4 days mountains were placed and the nourishment was given. Now, some people have translated the next bit as “then, the heavens were created in two days” whereas the actual translation is “Simultaneously, the heaven were created over a span of two days”. This totals up to 6 days as previously mentioned. Also by 6 days it does not mean 6 human days, but in fact extremely long lengths of time.

    Hope that has helped explain this misconception.

    Thanks for listening

    Peace be upon us all :)

      I knew this was exactly the case, when i read it first, and with not much idea on Big Bang. I just did not know how to explain, but you did it very nicely, & clearly. Thank you!!

    Oh and one thing I forgot to mention, the Earth and heavens etc are said to have been created simultaneously, as proven by the Big Bang Theory
