Ayah

ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلۡأَرۡضَ وَمَا بَيۡنَهُمَا فِى سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ ٱسۡتَوَىٰ عَلَى ٱلۡعَرۡشِ ۚ ٱلرَّحۡمَٰنُ فَسۡـَٔلۡ بِهِۦ خَبِيرًا

Translation

He Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between, in six days, and is firmly established on the Throne (of Authority): Allah Most Gracious: ask thou, then, about Him of any acquainted (with such things).<br/>

Tafsir

He it is, Who created the skies and the earth and all that is between them in six days, of the [length of the] days of this world, since there was no sun at that point - had He willed He could have created them in an instant, but His not having done so is because He will to teach His creatures to be circumspect - then presided upon the Throne (al-'arsh in the [classical] language is the seat on which a king sits) the Compassionate One (al-rahmaanu substitutes for the subject of [the verb] istawaa, 'presided') a presiding befitting of Him; so ask, O man, about Him, about the Compassionate One, anyone who is well aware, to inform you about His attributes!
