- Say (O Muhammad ): “Do you verily disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two Days and you set up rivals (in worship) with Him? That is the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). 10. He placed therein (i.e. the earth) firm mountains from above it, and He blessed it, and measured therein its sustenance (for its dwellers) in four Days equal (i.e. all these four ‘days’ were equal in the length of time), for all those who ask (about its creation). 11. Then He Istawa (rose over) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: “Come both of you willingly or unwillingly.” They both said: “We come, willingly.” 41:9-11
Here the order of creation is first heaven was created then mountains and sustainance was put on earth and then heaven was created.
- Are you more difficult to create, or is the heaven that He constructed? 28. He raised its height, and He has equally ordered it, 29. Its night He covers with darkness, and its forenoon He brings out (with light). 30. And after that He spread the earth; 31. And brought forth therefrom its water and its pasture. 32. And the mountains He has fixed firmly; 79:27-31
Here the order have changed i.e. first heaven was created then earth was spread out then mountains and sustainance was put on earth.
It seems a little contradictory. I'm confused. Can please someone clarify?
