We did Certainly Create the Heavens and Earth in Six Days and There Touched Us No Weariness

Or have you Not Heard, the Everlasting God, the Creator of the Ends of the Earth, does Not Faint, Neither is Weary?

Genesis 2:2 - 3, Torah
[But they say,] "On the seventh day God ended His work which He had made; and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it, because in it He had rested from all His work which God created and made."

50:15, Qur'an
Were We then tired in the first creation?  But they are in confusion over a new creation.

Isaiah 40:28, Torah
[Or] have you not known?  Have you not heard, [that] the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint, neither is weary?  [There is] no searching of His understanding.

2:255, Qur'an
[For He is] God - there is no god except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence.  Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep.  To Him [belongs] whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth.  Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission?  He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they do not encompass a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills.  His Throne extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation does not tire Him.  And He is the Most High, the Most Great.

Psalms 121:2 - 4, Torah
[And so] my help [comes] from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
 He will not allow your foot to be moved, He who keeps you will not slumber.  Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

Acts 7:49 - 50, Gospel
"[For] Heaven [is] My throne, and earth [is] My footstool, what House will you build Me?  Says the Lord, or what [is] the place of My rest?
 Has My hand not made all these things?"

50:38, Qur'an
[Yes, whereby] We did certainly create the heavens and earth and what is between them in six days, and there touched Us no weariness.

Sections of Sabbath

The Seventh Day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God, in it you will do No Work, so that your Servants may Rest as Well as you

But those who Wronged Among them Changed the Words to a Statement Other than that which had been Said to them

16:124, Qur'an
The sabbath was only appointed for those who differed over it. And indeed, your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection concerning that over which they used to differ.

7:144 - 145, Qur'an
[So remember when God] said, "O Moses, I have chosen you over the people with My messages and My words [to you].  So take what I have given you and be among the grateful."
 And We wrote for him on the tablets [something] of all things - instruction and explanation for all things, [saying], "Take them with determination and order your people to take the best of it."

Deuteronomy 5:1 - 2, Torah
[So] Moses called all Israel, and said to them, "Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgements which I speak in your ears this day, that you may learn them, and keep, and do them.
  [For] the Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb -

Deuteronomy 5:12 - 15, Torah
'Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the Lord your God has commanded you.
Six days you will labor, and do all your work.  But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the Lord your God, [in it] you will not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who [is] within your gates; that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you. And remember that you were a servant in the land of Egypt, and [that] the Lord your God brought you out from there through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm, therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the sabbath day.'

Exodus 23:12, Torah
[And thus] you will do your work for six days, and on the seventh day you will rest, that your ox and your donkey may rest, and the son of your handmaid, and the stranger, may be refreshed."

7:162 - 163, Qur'an
But those who wronged among them changed [the words] to a statement other than that which had been said to them.  So We sent upon them a punishment from the heaven for the wrong that they were doing.
 And [so] ask them about the town that was by the sea - when they transgressed in [the matter of] the sabbath - when their fish came to them openly on their sabbath day, and the day they had no sabbath they did not come to them.  Thus did We give them a trial because they were defiantly disobedient -

Exodus 31:15, Torah
[For they said,] "Six days may work be done; but in the seventh [is] the sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord, whoever does [any] work in the sabbath day, he will be put to death.
Therefore the Children of Israel will keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, [for] a perpetual covenant. It [is] a sign between Me and the Children of Israel forever, for [in] six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed."

22:52 - 54, Qur'an
And [thus] We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he had a desire [regarding a revelation], Satan threw into his desire [some misunderstanding]. But God abolishes that which Satan throws in; then God makes precise His verses. And God is Knowing and Wise.
[That is] so He may make what Satan throws in a trial for those within whose hearts is disease and those hard of heart. And indeed, the wrongdoers are in extreme dissension. And so those who were given knowledge may know that it is the truth from your Lord and [therefore] believe in it, and their hearts become humble to it. And indeed is God the Guide of those who have believed to a straight path -

Psalms 121:4, Torah
[So] behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep -

Isaiah 66:1, Torah
[For] thus the Lord says, "The heaven [is] My Throne, and the earth [is] My footstool, where [is] the House that you build to Me? And where [is] the place of My rest?"

41:40, Qur'an
[So] indeed, those who inject deviation into Our verses are not concealed from Us. So, is he who is cast into the Fire better or he who comes secure on the Day of Resurrection? Do whatever you will; indeed, He is Seeing of what you do.

When Jesus Brought Clear Proofs, he Said, "It is Lawful to do Well on the Sabbath Days"

But the Ruler of the Synagogue Answered with Indignation, Because Jesus had Healed on the Sabbath Day

3:50, Qur'an
[When Jesus brought clear proofs, he said, "I have come] confirming what was before me of the Torah and to make lawful for you some of what was forbidden to you.  And I have come to you with a sign from your Lord [in that I cure the blind and the leper], so fear God and obey me."

2:170, Qur'an
[But] when it is said to them, "Follow what God has revealed," they say, "Rather, we will follow that which we found our fathers doing." Even though their fathers understood nothing, nor were they guided?

John 5:16, Gospel
[For] the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

Luke 6:6 - 7, Gospel
[So] it came to also pass on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.

Mark 3:4 - 5, Gospel
[So he said] to them, "Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? To save life, or to kill?"  But they held their peace.
 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he says to the man, "Stretch forth your hand."  And he stretched [it] out, and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Luke 13:14, Gospel
[But] the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the sabbath day, and said to the people, "There are six days in which men should work, in them therefore come and be healed, and not on the sabbath day."

Matthew 12:11, Gospel
[So] he said to them, "What man will there be among you, who will have one sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift [it] out?

Luke 13:15, Gospel
[You] hypocrite, does not each one of you loose his ox or [his] ass from the stall on the sabbath, and lead [him] away to watering?

Matthew 12:12, Gospel
How much then is a man better than a sheep?  Therefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days."

5:78 - 79, Qur'an
[Thus] cursed were those who disbelieved among the Children of Israel by the tongue of Jesus, the son of Mary, and of David.  That was because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.
 They used not to prevent one another from wrongdoing that they did.  How wretched was that which they were doing.

Isaiah 56:1 - 2, Torah
Thus the Lord says, "Keep judgement, and do justice, for My salvation [is] near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed."
  Blessed [is] the man [who] does this, and the Son of man [who] lays hold on it; who keeps the sabbath from polluting it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.

They did Not Obey, Neither Incline their Ear, so We Seized those who Wronged

For We Took from them a Solemn Covenant, "Do Not Transgress on the Sabbath"

*4:154, Qur'an
We raised over them the mount for [refusal of] their covenant; and We said to them, "Enter the gate bowing humbly", and We said to them, "Do not transgress on the sabbath", and We took from them a solemn covenant -

Jeremiah 17:19 - 20, Torah
[Whereby] the Lord said to [Jeremiah]; "Go and stand in the gate of the children of the people, whereby the kings of Judah come in, and by which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem;
and say to them, 'Hear the word of the Lord, you kings of Judah, and all Judah, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, who enter in by these gates.

*Jeremiah 17:21 - 22, Torah
Thus the Lord says; 'Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the sabbath day, nor bring [it] in by the gates of Jerusalem;
neither carry forth a burden out of your houses on the sabbath day, neither do any work, but make the sabbath day holy, as I commanded your fathers.

Jeremiah 17:27, Torah
[But] if you will not hear Me to make the sabbath day holy, and to not bear a burden, even entering in at the gates of Jerusalem on the sabbath day; then I will kindle a fire in the gates thereof, and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem, and it will not be quenched -

Jeremiah 32:32 - 33, Torah
Because of all the evil of the Children of Israel and of the Children of Judah, which they have done to provoke Me to anger, they, their kings, their princes, their priests, and their prophets, and the men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
[For] they have turned the back to Me, and not the face, though I taught them, rising up early and teaching [them], yet they have not listened to receive instruction.'

Jeremiah 25:8 - 9, Torah
Therefore the Lord thus says of hosts; 'Because you have not heard My words,
behold, I will send and take all the families of the north,' the Lord says, 'And Nebuchadrezzar, the king of Babylon, My servant, and will bring them against this land, and against the inhabitants thereof, and against all these nations round about, and will utterly destroy them, and make them an astonishment, and a hissing, and perpetual desolations.'"

17:5, Qur'an
So when the [time of] promise came for the first of them, We sent against you servants of Ours [Nebuchadrezzar and the Chaldees] - those of great military might, and they probed [even] into the homes, and it was a promise fulfilled -

2 Chronicles 36:17, Torah
[For] He brought the king of the Chaldees upon them, who slew their young men with the sword in the house of their sanctuary, and had no compassion upon young man or maiden, old man, or one stooped for age, He gave [them] all into his hand.

Jeremiah 52:13 - 14, Torah
And [Nebuchadrezzar] burned the House of the Lord, and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, and all the houses of the great [men], he burned with fire.
And all the army of the Chaldeans, who [were] with the captain of the guard, broke down all the walls of Jerusalem round about.

Jeremiah 39:11 - 12, Torah
[But] Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon, gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying,
"Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do to him even as he will say to you."

7:165, Qur'an
And [thus] when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We saved those who had forbidden evil and seized those who wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying.

4:47, Qur'an
[So] O you who were given the Scripture, believe in what We have sent down, confirming that which is with you, before We obliterate faces and turn them toward their backs or curse them as We cursed the sabbath-breakers.  And ever is the decree of God accomplished.
