Allah Created the world in 6 days…then sat down upon the throne… the creation was completed for our world…

Asalamu Aliekum! Dear readers we take up a subject which is among the most dear to my heart. The topic of creation. Today in our world we see the effects of the most deplorable teaching of the doctrine of ‘evolution’ or known also as ‘evilution’. This has taught that all men and the entire nature has evolved into being from some lesser form of life through millions and millions of years. It denies the Creator Allah as being the One who created all things in six days.
Even from among the believers there are strong, misleading ideas which people are embracing that it took Allah millions and millions of years to create what we now see upon planet earth! Amazing that even among believers we see that the Honored Qur’an is not trusted, but rather that man’s deceptive mind is believed in the place of Allah’s Word. In both Holy Books and the Honored Qur’an, we see that Allah created the world in which we live in and the sun, moon, and stars…in six days. Only six literal days…not millions and millions of years. Whom do you believe dear reader? Is it Allah’s Word or men’s deceptive reasoning which has been influenced by Iblis (Satan)?
Seven golden verses…
Yes that is what they are…seven golden verses from the Honored Qur’an which tell us that the world was created in six days…not millions and millions of years…Here they are for your very own to read in the English Yusef Ali’s translation…
Sura 7.54 Your Guardian-Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and is firmly established on the throne (of authority): He draweth the night as a veil over the day, each seeking the other in rapid succession: He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, (all) governed by laws under His command. Is it not His to create and to govern? Blessed be Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds! Al-Qur'an 7.054 Al-Araf

Sura 10.3 Verily your Lord is Allah, who created the heavens and the earth in six days, and is firmly established on the throne (of authority), regulating and governing all things. No intercessor (can plead with Him) except after His leave (hath been obtained). This is Allah your Lord; Him therefore serve ye: will ye not Celebrate His praises?
Al-Qur'an, 10.3 Yunus

Sura 11.7 He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days - and His Throne was over the waters - that He might try you, which of you is best in conduct. But if thou wert to say to them, "Ye shall indeed be raised up after death", the Unbelievers would be sure to say, "This is nothing but obvious sorcery!" Al-Qur'an, 11.7 Hud

Sura 25.59 He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between, in six days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): Allah Most Gracious: ask thou, then, about Him of any acquainted (with such things).
Al-Qur'an, 25.59 Al-Furqan

Sura 32.4 It is Allah Who has created the heavens and the earth, and all between them, in six Days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): ye have none, besides Him, to protect or intercede (for you): will ye not then receive admonition?
Al-Qur'an, 32.4 As-Sajda

Sura 50.38 We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days, nor did any sense of weariness touch Us. Al-Qur'an, 50.38 Qaf
Here you have all seven of these golden verses which tell you that Allah created the world which we see in exactly six days. Each of these days were 24 hours in length. It is not at all impossible for Allah to do this, He alone is all-powerful. He needs only to speak the Word and it is done. Who among men can do that? From the Zabur (Psalms) which Daud wrote, we have this text…
“For he [Allah] spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.” Zabur Psalms 33:9 Allah needed only to speak and it appears.

The Holy Books tells the story…
The Holy Books of the Bible scriptures tell the entire story…which we include in this study.
“In the beginning God [Allah] created the heaven and the earth.” Taurat Genesis 1:1
The entire account is carefully recorded for us in the first chapter of Taurat (Genesis).
Taurat Genesis 1:3-5 “And God [Allah] said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Thus ended the first day of creation and the Taurat calls it: “the evening and morning”. According to Allah’s time reckoning a day begins in the evening (night) then followed by the day (light). Now more was to come…
Genesis 1:6-8 “And God [Allah] said, Let there be a firmament [expanse or dome] in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.”
Genesis 1:9-13 “And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the third day.”
Genesis 1:14-19 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.”
So upon the completion of the fourth day, Allah made the sun, moon and stars to give light by day and by night.
Genesis 1:20-23 “And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.”
Then on the final sixth day of creating…Allah did something very unique…He created man in His own image…
Genesis 1:24-31 “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
How Allah ended His creation week…
Taurat Genesis 2:1-3 “Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day [Saturday or Sabt] God [Allah] ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God [Allah] blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God [Allah] created and made.”

This is how Allah ended His creation week, by resting from creating. This in no way implies that Allah needed rest nor was weary, it simply states that on this day, this special day, He ceased creating and set apart a special day. A day upon which all creation could come together each and every 7th day of the week to honor and cherish the Creator. By observing this day, man would always remember that he was created in six days and that he did not evolve over millions of year. As man has forgotten that day (the Sabbath, Sabt, or Seventh Day), he has gone far astray from the right course. Had he always remembered the Sabbath Day by honoring that day, man would never have embraced the idea of ‘Evolution’. That is why today most of mankind is out of harmony with Allah. Even among believers this sacred day which Allah has set aside for Holy use is totally ignored. To remind us that we should not forget, Allah upon the towering heights of Sinai spoke to mankind reminding him to ‘remember’ and observe the Sabbath (Sabt), which was to be a blessing for all mankind.
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Taurat Exodus 20:8-11
