A Survey of Formal Inconsistency of the Verses on Creation of the World in Six Periods

Abstract:   (3969 Views)

There seem to be a formal inconsistency among the verses dealing with temporal periods of heavens and earth. On the verse 9-12 of Fussilat, the periods have been mentioned as 8 days; while on other verses, they are known to be 6 days. Some commentators have not paid any attention to the inconsistency and, therefore, have not present any answer. Yet, other commentators have tried to give a solution. The paper has intended to criticize views given by commentators and to solve the problem on the basis of the distinction between the worlds of creation and commandment. On this basis, “placing therein firm hills” and “measuring therein its sustenance” established in four days may be considered as a complement for creation not for creation itself, the two other periods of creation of heavens and earth remained unknown by God and viewed differently by commentators, would be related to what come in the verse 11 on heavens and earth.

Keywords: Creation of Heavens and Earth, Six Days, Commandment and Creation, Heaven and Earth`s Coming
