Why were the heavens and earth created in six days?

This manifestation of wisdom in its creation has shown itself with the occurrences in it as well. Night covered the earth and morning came afterwards. Dawn replaced the night and this is followed by sunrise. Then it became midday with the further rise of the sun, which is followed by fertile afternoon and finally dusk.

The heavens and earth were created in six stages one by one. Then this marvelous universe has come into existence.

If the day came all of a sudden, and if the night set in instantly, could we talk about neither dawn nor midday nor afternoon?

This creation of wisdom prevailed in the world of plants too. There is a divine art and wisdom in the seed. The whole program of the three has been drawn with the pen of fate. The genetic code in it is at perfection as to astound the men of science and again is filled with profound mysteries as to render them helpless.

The opening of the seed is a further marvel. The manifestation of the name of Opener (Al-Fattah). Despite the gravity, wise, and orderly walking upwards… Then, reaching the stage of a plant. The stages of growing tall and being hard, and then blossoming and yielding fruit… It is again not all of a sudden the growing, ripening of each fruit, the soft fruits having hard seeds. All comes true stage by stage.

The inconceivable happenings whose every stage is conducted with knowledge and wisdom fill the face of the earth with various scenes, and strike the men of contemplation with admiration for these divine arts.

What prevails on earth is wisdom, and in the Hereafter is power. If the world were the land of power, this marvelous universe would have been created all of a sudden in place of in six stages. The trees on it would have grown all of a sudden and have taken on their last form. Then the divine works of art we have counted above would not have come into existence.

The world of seeds would have remained in nothingness and, their blossoming, growing, and sprouting would have not been realized.

If seeds had not existed, as a matter of fact, eggs and the seminal fluid would have remained in nothingness, and they would have been deprived of revealing the divine arts that they bear. If plants had not existed, babies, lambs, calves would not have existed either. Thousands of works of art would have been reduced to one; hundreds of beauties would have disappeared.

The manifestations of the actions of training and disciplining, only the products of the happenings of construction and origination would have emerged on earth.

The divine wisdom did not let it happen and wished to construct the universe in six stages instead of constructing it all of a sudden.
