  • Quran 41:9-12 – Creation Of The World

    Posted by Abdul Sattar Ahmed on April 30, 2024 at 12:01 pm

    Salam alaikum,

    Just watched a video of this ex-muslim atheist claiming how surah Fussilat contradicts now know science about the world.

    According to that guy Allah First 1) created the earth 2) then placed mountains on top 3) provided provisions for living beings 4) then created the sky.

    His main objections I remember were 1) placing mountains is wrong as they were not placed but were formed from the earth with tectonic plates colliding and rising up 2) we all know that the sky/heaven/space came before the earth.

    I’m guessing that chronological creation is not the point of this verse and neither does it mean it those ways literally. What is the true meaning/message of Ayahs 41:9-12 then?

    The Qur’an is not in scientific jorgan but in a literary style, the way we use language like the sun rises in rhr east and sets in rhr west, however, scientifically there is no happening like this.

    Such kinds of objection comes from sheer ignorance.

    مِنْ فَوْقِھَا‘ کے الفاظ سے مقصود ان کی طرف توجہ دلانا ہے کہ اللہ تعالیٰ کی قدرت کی یہ نشانیاں کچھ ڈھکی چھپی نہیں ہیں بلکہ یہ زمین کے اوپر ہی موجود ہیں جن کو ہر شخص دیکھ سکتا ہے
