In how many days the earth was formed in sense of Quran? Can any be my help, why is there mathematical contradiction in Quran 41:9-11

I'd be great If you mention time factor as well, B/c in my mentioning verses of Quran it talks about DAYS. If we count them ALL, in spite of 6 days It makes 8 days?
In(41:9 talks about 2days), (41:10=4 days), (41:12=2 days) so the total is EIGHT 8 DAYS. WHEREAS IN SURA YOUNUS OF QURAN IT SAYS EARTH WAS FORMED IN ONLY SIX 6 DAY? how it come?

Allah says :

( 9 ) Say, "Do you indeed disbelieve in He who created the earth in two days and attribute to Him equals? That is the Lord of the worlds

( 10 ) And He placed on the earth firmly set mountains over its surface, and He blessed it and determined therein its [creatures'] sustenance in four days without distinction - for [the information] of those who ask.

( 11 ) Then He directed Himself to the heaven while it was smoke and said to it and to the earth, "Come [into being], willingly or by compulsion." They said, "We have come willingly."

( 12 ) And He completed them as seven heavens within two days and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing.

Two days in verse 9, four days in verse 10 plus two days in verse 12 is makes 8. that's what I am confused.

Perhaps while Allah was creating the Earth, he also had time to create other things such as the mountains. So the two days to create the earth also intercedes with the two days to follow with verse 10

aha ..now i realized what you want ...

well .. the 4 days in verse 10 include the 2 days in verse 9 ...so the summation become 4 days (which include the first 2 days ) + 2 days = 6 days

you know Quran is in Arabic and you might not understand very much from the translation

renglemsr, you said:
God directed Himself to the heavens while it was smoke ---
Smoke??? Where did smoke come from? And you said "worlds"- plural- so is there more just like earth? Where did that stuff come from? Thanks.

for the word ' worlds " i don't know ,

Allah says :

( 29 ) And of his signs is the creation of the heavens and earth and what He has dispersed throughout them of creatures. And He, for gathering them when He wills, is competent.

Quran (42:29)

The koran was written only 1,400 years ago, the planet is 4.6 BILLION years old, so do the math from there.

Hahaha you yourself answered me IF the math was not there then how you can estimate 4.6 BILLION OLD. The image of human was there Mr.Tony. The earth is for us WE are not for the EARTH.

Probably because when it says the EARTH was formed in six days, and if memory serves, humans, and or animals were created afterwards, so it is not always recognized as being a part of EARTH's creation. However I may well be mistaken, as I am not Islamic, and have not read the Qur'an in a while

Dear, if you could tell me in the view of Quranic sense. I didn't ask about Christian concept.

I thought the Quran followed along with the Bible up to when Mohamed made himself out to be a profit.

Well, it could be the sense of Days. I mean, in human days it would be eight, but in Allah's days it would be six. I don't know, I'm an atheist. I'm just trying to think of some crazy responses Christians would make.

Thanks brother for your response, I would expect more comments from your side whatever your religion may be!
Report as
I really have no religion. It's just that I get tired of many Christians bashing on other faiths and stuff. And I knew that if I didn't give you some decent excuses, then they would win against you.
Report as
Passage only bashes on Christians. He's okay with other religions even those who kill those who don't convert if they actually followed the words of their profit Mohamed.
Report as
Oh, I didn't say that! I just hate it when people who have never actually read another Holy Doctrine spew all this crazy tosh towards those doctrines. Just like you I suppose. You don't actually realize that the Qu'Ran doesn't actually say that. It's a huge misconception many Christians have to keep their children from being converted.
