Question text

The Qur’an states that Allah (swt) created the Earth and the planets in six days. Days are a human creation, i.e. minutes, seconds etc. A day is defined by the full rotation of the earth, but at that time the earth had not been created to be used as a means of measurement. Is there more than one earth?

Answer

The word ‘days’ (ayyam) in the Qur’an does not refer to an ordinary day, as we know it, but rather as ‘stages’. Thus Allah (swt) created the universe in six stages.
