وَجَعَلَ فِيۡهَا رَوَاسِىَ مِنۡ فَوۡقِهَا وَبٰرَكَ فِيۡهَا وَقَدَّرَ فِيۡهَاۤ اَقۡوَاتَهَا فِىۡۤ اَرۡبَعَةِ اَيَّامٍؕ سَوَآءً لِّلسَّآٮِٕلِيۡنَ‏

And He is the One Who placed therein firm mountains towering above it, and bestowed enduring bliss upon it. And He measured therein its sustenance in Four Eras, alike for all who (invariably) need it. [39:67, 56:63-73. Six Eras or Stages: 41:9 Says 'Two Eras', 41:12 says 'Two Eras'. Thus, according to the Qur'an, the creation of the heavens and earth took place in Two Eras. The word Yaum here means a very long period. (A thousand years of your reckoning (32:5) or it may be fifty thousand years in certain cases (70:4). In scientific terms, the period of creation of the material world is called 'Azoic' or Lifeless. The Qur'an however, divides this period into two and calls it Two Eras. Modern scientific research throws some light on the division of Azoic Era into two: To begin with, the entire space was full of smoke (41:11). Smoke, as we know, is a mixture of gases and solid particles. Areas of condensation appeared later in this gas and the dust cloud, resulting in the formation of Prostars which further developed into stars. Some big meteorites became planets and smaller heavenly bodies. The division of one complete whole of Smoke to Prostars is a great event. Thus we may call the period before the division of the whole Smoke as Era-I of the creation of the Universe; and the period after this division until the appearance of life as Era- II. The Qur'an divides the time of creation after the appearance of life on the earth into Four Eras. Two plus Four makes 'Six Eras' of evolution. 32:4]
