Creation of Heavens and Earth;

 

By Ijaz Chaudry

 

This article is brief introduction of how and in which order did the Heavens, Earth and all the creation were created;

 

[38:69]  "I had no knowledge previously, about the feud in the High Society.

 

Quran states above that before the creation of Heavens and the Earth and all the life on earth we used to be one Society living in high Heavens.  Then Satan disobeyed God and all those followed him were exiled to Earth.  This event was the start of Creation process and the reason why we are here on earth today.

 

[33:72]  We have offered the trust to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they refused to bear it, and were afraid of it. But the human being accepted it; he was transgressing, ignorant.

 

First test after categorising angels, humans, animals and jinn’s (descendants of Satan) the humans and all other living and non-living things were asked if they want to have firm belief in reliability, truth, ability or strength of our self.  All living things and non-living things graciously refused while humans failed this test and accepted this trust.  Thus all humans are responsible for their deeds while all other living and non-living things are not.

 

The measure of Time started at Big Bang;

[21:30]  Do the unbelievers not realize that the heaven and the earth used to be one solid mass that we exploded into existence? And from water we made all living things. Would they believe?

 

Next came, the Big Bang…

 

[2:29]  He is the One who created for you everything on earth, then turned to the sky and perfected seven universes therein, and He is fully aware of all things.

 

Next the creation of 7 Universes and Earth…

 

[32:7]  He is the One who perfected everything He created, and started the creation of the human from clay.

 

Next came, the creation of all creatures other than humans the plants and animals that we can see.  This is where the evolution took place and as stated in (21:30) God created all living things from water.  This fact coincides with the scientific research which confirms that all living things were evolved and the living process started from bacteria in the water.

 

Creation of humans Vs evolution;

Next came, the actual physical creation of human being from clay which is different from creation of animals and plants (they were evolved) read (32:7) above…

 

All human have inbuilt sense of God;

[7:172]  Recall that your Lord summoned all the descendants of Adam, and had them bear witness for themselves: "Am I not your Lord?" They all said, "Yes. We bear witness." Thus, you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection, "We were not aware of this." [7:173]  Nor can you say, "It was our parents who practiced idolatry, and we simply followed in their footsteps. Will You punish us because of what others have innovated?"

 

While all this was happening (7:172-173) took place.  Thus all humans are born with instinctive knowledge that there is a God…

 

[2:35]  We said, "O Adam, live with your wife in Paradise, and eat therefrom generously, as you please, but do not approach this tree, lest you sin."[2:36]  But the devil duped them, and caused their eviction therefrom. We said, "Go down as enemies of one another. On Earth shall be your habitation and provision for a while." [2:37]  Then, Adam received from his Lord words, whereby He redeemed him. He is the Redeemer, Most Merciful. [2:38]  We said, "Go down therefrom, all of you. When guidance comes to you from Me, those who follow My guidance will have no fear, nor will they grieve.

 

This was the third test when Adam and Eve and later all humans were sent down because of them approaching the forbidden tree… And on the proviso that if humans redeem themselves they will enter paradise else they will end in Hell.  This constitutes the third and final test our inhabitancy on earth. 

 

[32:8]  Then He continued his reproduction through a certain lowly liquid.

 

Finally humans multiplied through reproduction…

Time is limited to the seven universes because the time was started when ‘Big Bang’ happened thus there will be an end to time.  As far as God is concerned in the High Heaven, time is not an issue, because High Heaven has always been there and always will be, until God decides something else…

 

Proof Time started at Big Bang;

So how do we know that time started at Big Bang. Big Bang is described in (21:30) when we take geometric values of Arabic words “Bada Al-Waqat” which means “the time began” in English we get 7, 31 & 506 respectively and when we concatenate these geometric values to chapter and verse where Big Bang is mentioned we get complete multiple of 19 confirming the fact that Time indeed started at Big Bang; 7 31 506 21 30 = 385003270 x 19.

 

Indeed the permanence of the High Heaven can be visualised from the following verse;

[21:104]  On that day, we will fold the heaven, like the folding of a book. Just as we initiated the first creation, we will repeat it. This is our promise; we will certainly carry it out.

 

Thus the High Heaven where Paradise is, will still remain while the Universe we live in will be folded like a book…
