ALLAH is T I M E : Measuring the Immeasurable

Do you know that
every day is about 55 billionths of a second longer than the day before it?
Do you know that zeptosecond is one-billionth
of a trillionth of a second?
Can you just imagine how much time did it take for Allah to create the cosmos? Kun Fayakun!

هَلْ أَتَى عَلَى الْإِنْسَانِ حِينٌ مِنَ الدَّهْرِ لَمْ يَكُنْ شَيْئًا مَذْكُورًا
“Has there not been over man a period of time, when he was not a thing worth mentioning?”
[al-Insaan 76:1]

لا يسب أحدكم الدهر فإن الله هو الدهر

La tassubu ahadukum ad-Dahr, fa inAllaha huwa ad-Dahr

Do not - anyone of you - curse time, because Allah is time.

This hadeeth was narrated by Muslim (5827) from Abu Hurayrah. (al Khattabi, an-Nawawi, and Ibn Uthaymeen all said that this means that Allah is the controller of time. [see IslamQA question no.26977.)
Surah al-'Asr – Time

waal 'Asr

(I swear) By Time.
إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ

Innaal Insaana La fee Khusrin

Indeed, man[kind] is surely in loss,
إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ

Illaalladheena amanoo wa AAamiloossaalihaati watawaassaw bilhaqqi watawaassaw bis-sabr

Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.
