Question: 
In the third verse of the blessed S£rah al-Øad¢d it is mentioned that,
“He it is Who created the Heavens and the Earth in six days…” 
where as before the Heavens and the Earth were created, there was no such measurement of time bythe name of day in existence and the only way that day can have any meaning is with the presence of the Sun and Earth.Please explain this for us.
Answer: 
The word

and its equivalent (in English) which is
day 
is most often used in the meaning of the time period of the shining of the sun - whose opposite is night – however, its meaning is much more vast than this.In the Venerable Qur˜°n, noble a¶°d¢th, words of the literary men of the `Arabic language, `Arabic speakers and the poetsamongst the `Arabs and non-`Arabs, another meaning is given – whose meaning is similar to that of a time period – just ashas been mentioned.Sometimes it is said

or
day 
and what is meant by this word is the time period between the rising of the Sun and itssetting. Sometimes when this word is used, its meaning is the time period that an event happened within; the time periodor era of a government; the life of a person; the period of one’s youth or old age; the period of one’s supremacy and glory;or the prosperity of a nation or group of people. For example it can be said, “today, tomorrow, and from that day” andone would mean the next life, or as the poets have said:


In this poem, the meaning of the line “

 
!
 

or the
Day of Øadhrat Kh°tam 
is the complete time period that theNoble Prophet of Isl°m (blessings of All°h be upon him and his family) was alive. Also, the poet A`sh¢ has said thefollowing in a poem:

 
"#
 
$%! 

()*
 
"+
 
+
 
$,-
In this poem, the word
"+
or
my day 
has been used in the meaning of the person’s entire life. Also, Am¢r al-Mo’min¢n`Al¢ ibn Ab¢
 F
°lib (prayers be upon him) in his khutbah known as Shiqshiqiyah (
.%/0/01
 
.23
)has cited something similar tothis poem and the two time periods and two ages which have been attributed to himself by the use of the word

or
day 
.
