Let there be

NO DELUSION...
YES... The Falsehood
has been narrated by
Abu Hurayrah
or has been recorded
in his name
in either case, the following narration needs to be removed to eliminate the contradictions
between the Qur'an and the Hadiths.
In the past, much attention and importance has been paid upon the chain of Narrators (isnad) and
too little upon the Text (matan).

The call of the day is to prepare a Revised Sahih of the Sahihs...


(Last updated November 11, 2002)

To refute the above


STATEMENT OF TRUTH
is to refute the following
REVEALED TRUTH BY ALLAH...
Please read the following Revealed Verses of the Glorious Qur'an
on the subject of
THE CREATION
bearing in mind that the Knowledge of it is with Allah Alone...

Your guardian-Lord is Allah Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days and is firmly
established on the throne (of authority): 7: 54
Footnote # 1031 by Abdullah Yusuf Ali to the above verse:
A sublime verse, comparable to the Throne Verse 2: 255. As for the Creation in six Days; in verse
22: 47, we are told that a Day in the sight of Allah is like a thousand years of our reckoning, and
in verse 70: 4, the comparison is with 50,000 of our years. In the history of our material earth, we
may reckon six great epochs of evolution."

Note: The Arabic phrase "sittah ayyam" is translated by


M. Asad as "six aeons" and by Malik as "six time periods".

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): 32: 4

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. 10: 3

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. 11:7

We created the heavens and the earth and all between them in Six Days nor did any sense of
weariness touch Us. 50: 38

He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days and is moreover firmly established on
the Throne (of authority). 57: 4

THE FOLLOWING (SAHIH !) HADITH


NARRATED BY ABU HURAYRAH
CLAIMS THAT THE CREATION WAS DONE BY ALLAH IN
"SEVEN DAYS"
AND THAT WAS TOLD BY NONE OTHER,
BUT BY "ALLAH'S MESSENGER", HOLDING HIS HANDS:
In Sahih Muslim Book No. 38, "Giving Description Of The Day Of Judgement, Paradise And Hell
(Kitab Sifat Al-Qiyama Wa'L Janna Wa'N-Nar)",
Hadith Number 6707 records:

Narrated by Abu Hurayrah:

Allah's Messenger took hold of my hands and said: Allah, the Exalted and Glorious, created the
clay on Saturday and He created the mountains on Sunday and He created the trees on Monday
and He created the things entailing labour on Tuesday and created light on Wednesday and He
caused the animals to spread on Thursday and created Adam (peace be upon him) after Asr on
Friday; the last creation at the last hour of the hours of Friday, i.e. between afternoon and night.
Note: The opening sentence of the narration gives an indication that this reporting was a kind of
personal exclusive conversation between the narrator - Abu Hurayrah, and the Prophet (s.a.s.).
The Narration is so inflexible (giving the exact names of the days and the precise hour of a day),
that it invalidates the above two foot notes, concerning the Arabic phrase "sittah ayyam".
This Hadeeth speaks of only the Creation of this Earth and Adam.
There is NO mention of the Creation of the Universe and/or of the Heavens.
Adam and Bibi Hawa (peace be upon them), were created in the Heaven.

Anyone who yet tries to defend the Narrator Abu Hurayrah and/or the compiler Imam Muslim,
concerning the AUTHENTICITY of the above quoted narration, has to admit that the Prophet had
the ADDITIONAL - SPECIFIC - PRECISE knowledge/information than what has been Revealed
to us by Allah (SWT)...

A refusal to REJECT this "Sahih Hadith by Imam Muslim", after reading the above, is in effect the
REJECTION of the Glorious Qur'an...

Hence, any one who claims that there is not a SINGLE "Sahih Hadeeth" that can be REJECTED
as FALSE, has to watch out that such blind loyalty and outcry does not make him/her a
"MUNKAR-E-QUR'AN"!

I undertake to REVISE this article and the notes, IF I do receive valid


explanations or the verses from the Qur'an that can justify the above TEXT.

REFUTATION OF THE MISLEADING ARGUMENTS OFTEN PRESENTED BY THE ENEMIES


OF ISLAM CONCERNING
THE CREATION IN "EIGHT DAYS"

Below are the translated text of verses 41: 9 to 12 done by M. Asad and his scholarly
commentaries. Also, are TWO separate scholarly explanations that prove that the Creation of the
universe happened in "SIX AEONS (DAYS)"

THE TRANSLATIONS AND COMMENTARIES OF THE FOUR VERSES:

41: 9 Say: "Would you indeed deny Him who has created the earth in two aeons?7 And do you
claim that there is any power that could rival Him,8 the Sustainer of all the worlds?"
7 For the above rendering of the term yawm (lit., "day") as "aeon", see last third of note [43] on
7:54. As in so many verses of the Qur'an which relates to cosmic events, the repeated mention of
the "six aeons" during which the universe was created - "two" of which, according to the above
verse, were taken by the evolution of the inorganic universe, including the earth - has a purely
allegorical import: in this case, I believe, an indication that the universe did not exist "eternally"
but had a definite beginning in time, and that it required a definite time-lapse to evolve to its
present condition.
The last third of note [43] on 7:54 reads: The word yawm, commonly translated as "day" - but
rendered above as "aeon" - is used in Arabic to denote any period, whether extremely long
("aeon") or extremely short ("moment"):
8 Lit., "do you give Him compeers (andad)?"
41: 10 For He [it is who, after creating the earth,] placed firm mountains on it [towering] above its
surface, and bestowed [so many] blessings on it, and equitably apportioned9 its means of
subsistence to all who would seek it: [an all this He created] in four aeons.10
9 I.e., in accordance with divine justice, and not with human concepts of "equity" or "need".
10 Almost all the classical commentators agree in that these "four aeons" include the "two"
mentioned in the preceding verse: hence my interpolation of the words "and all this He created".
Together with the "two aeons" of verse 12, the entire allegorical number comes to six.

41: 11 And11 He [it is who] applied His design to the skies, which were yet but smoke;12 and He
[it is who] said to them and to the earth, "come [into being], both of you, willingly or unwillingly!" -
to which both responded, "we do come in obedience."
11 Whenever particle thumma is used, as in above instance, to link parallel statements -
statements not necessarily indicating a sequence in time - it has the function of a simple
conjunction, and may be rendered as "and".
12 I.e.,a gas - evidently hydrogen gas, which physicists regard as the primal element from which
all material particles of the universe have evolved and still evolve. For meaning of the term same
("sky" or "skies" or "heaven") in its cosmic connotation, see note [20] on 2: 29.
Note [20] on 2:29 reads: ... As regards the "seven heavens" it is to be borne in mind that in Arabic
usage - and apparently in other Semitic languages as well - the number "seven" is often
synonymous with "several" (see Lisan al-'Arab)...

41: 12 And He [it is who] decreed that they become seven heavens14 in two aeons, and imparted
unto each heaven its function. And We adorned the skies nearest to the earth with lights, and
made them secure:such is the ordaining of the Almighty, the All-knowing.
14 I.e., a multiplicity of cosmic systems (cf. note [20] on 2: 29).

ERRONEOUS AND MISLEADING SUMMARY OF THE FOUR VERSES:


a. Verse 41:9 Allah created the Earth in ................ .... .... .... 2 aeons

b. Verse 41:10 Allah placed Mountains, bestowed blessings in ... 4 aeons

c. Verses 41:11/12 Allah applied His design to the Skies, decreed the seven heavens, adorned
the skies (heavens) and made them secure in ... ... 2 aeons

2 + 4 + 2 = EIGHT Aeons or "EIGHT DAYS".

TRUE EXPLANATION NUMBER ONE, AS GIVEN BY M. ASAD:

In his above quoted commentaries translator M. Asad has reasoned, after giving explanations,
that within the FOUR AEONS of Verse 41: 10 are included the TWO AEONS of Verse 41: 9. I
reproduce below the text from his commentary number 10: Almost all the classical commentators
agree in that these "four aeons" include the "two" mentioned in the preceding verse.

THE ALTERNATE TRUE EXPLANATION NUMBER TWO:

This explanation, as understood by me and presented below, has its reasonings based upon the
Verse 21:30 of the Qur'an, as such is much more convincing.

VERSE 21: 30:


ARE, THEN, they who are bent on denying the truth not aware that the heavens and the earth
were [once] one single entity, which We then parted asunder? and [that] We made out of water
every living thing? Will they not, then being to believe?
The above Revelation on the subject of the Creation of the Heavens and the Earth, tells us in no
uncertain terms that it was a SINGLE ACT of parting (sundering), that simultaneously
(concurrently) resulted into the creation of
"the heavens (skies)" and "the earth". In other words, the processes of (a)and (c)mentioned
above, did in reality happen concurrently and at the same time. Hence, (a + c) in TWO Aeons
"Days" plus (b) in FOUR Aeons "Days".
The TOTAL thus comes to "SIX Aeons Days" and not "EIGHT Aeons Days"
Allah knows the best...
