Quran 25 Verse 59 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Furqan ayat 59, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(25:59) He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is in between them in six days, and then ascended the Throne;[72] the Merciful One. Ask concerning Him the one who knows.


72. For explanation of Throne, see (E.Ns 41, 42 of Surah Al- Aaraf); (E.N. 4 of Surah Younus), and (E.N. 7 Surah of Houd). It is difficult to say what exactly is mean by six days. Here a day may mean a period of time or an ordinary day of this world. For explanation of the day, see (E.Ns 11 to 15 of Surah HaMim Sajdah).
