Pondering The Six Days Of Creation My Questions
"We created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us" (50:38).Six days creation of the heaven and the earth has never left my mind ever since I read about how this ayaat caused a lot of debates among the Christians community as well as Muslims who also asked scholars for some explanations. But the most important thing is it is hard for me to digest that Allah need 6 days to create something but he can actually make it instantly. Some scholars just said that we have to accept whatever Allah said but for me, every single word that He mentions must mean something so big that I can't help but to question further. I am just sick of the people who look down of this powerful ayat and make fun of why Allah need time to create heaven and earth.
I usually refer to the mufti's website and this time I found out that the scholars have a different interpretation of the phrase فِي سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٖ on the creation of the heavens and earth in six periods. al-Imam Ibn Kathir mentioned two points:
The general opinion says that the six times were as ordinary as we are today.Meanwhile, Ibn 'Abbas R.A, Mujahid, al-Dahhak and Ka'ab al-Ahbar said that each day corresponded to 1000 years of ordinary days.
The above statement can be found on the Mufti WP website when he answered the question about 'when the earth was created'.
I read the article and some other articles that I found on some websites but I have to admit that I couldn't grasp and comprehend the answers so far. Therefore I have listed the questions that make me ponder a lot about the ayaat. Actually, the six days of creation have been mentioned seven times in the Quran at different surah. As usual, the questions below are the results of me pondering about something that I have no clear explanations. Hopefully, in the future, He will enlighten me with some answers which will make me feel at peace with myself.
The "Question Marks" and the "What-If" that I have in my mind are:
Can we relate the 'six-days' or 'six-periods' terms with studies of Multiverse theories available in the current era? Or can we actually perceive the six-days as six-dimension? Multiple universe/world but we don't live together because of the boundary that the Almighty has set.In Malaysia basically, there are stories about people who entered the jins' world or dimension and basically, the time is slower in that other dimension. For example, 1 day in jin's dimension equals to 10 days (for example) in our dimension. So what-if the 6 days means 6 dimensions where the world that we live in is just one of them. We know that Allah has other creations and the ones we knew are the jinns/syaitan and the angels.
My first opinion is: the creation of 6-days is the creation of 6-dimensions where..
1st dimension: The world that we are living in
2nd dimension: The jinn's or shaitaan's world
3rd dimension: The ruh's dimension where the souls gather when we fall asleep
4th and 5th dimensions: The barzakh dimension where good souls shall gather at Illiyyin and the bad souls shall gather at Sijjin and souls from the two worlds do not know who enters the other world
6th dimension: The angel's dimension. I noticed when the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad, the jinn's weren't able to eavesdrop any of the angels' conversation like before. As if the jinn's previously cant see the angels, they can only hear them talking.
I have yet to hear any scholars who discuss about time dimensions instead of insisting on 'days'. I hope that one day there will be scholars who probably relate this terms with dimensions and give me some clarity on the things I have been pondering... the 6 days creation
