And yet, in surah Hadid, Allah states:
He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days; then He ARSH ISTAWA.
Your claiming that God was resting upon the water, inferring it from the above verse, yet Surah hadid is saying God 'ascended' the throne after
He created the heavens and earth in six days. Further, water in Genesis was present before the creation of the heavens and earth
, and yet, according to the Quran, the throne being above the waters is made after the statement of the creation of the heavens and the earth. This leads me to point 2:
The Quran states very specifically that Allah created every living thing out of water, thus the idea that God is copying the Genesis account, when it is referring to the giving of man life to test him is tantamount to the greatest of absurdities. Genesis relates the account in a historical context, while the Quran has it's own purpose. The idea of a throne being literally above the waters has absolutely no bearing on the context of trying men to see who is best in deeds.
Now answer the questions that you keep avoiding, which are:
1. Where is the word WAS in the Arabic of the Quran? And once you do that, then we see if the "was" always denotes past tense.
2. You claimed everybody that understands Arabic translates it in the past. Prove it..
