I have a question regarding the creation of the universe. The quran says that it was created in 7 days (to my knowledge) but is this ayah literal or metaphorical? And do we believe in the big bang theory or not? I'm just curious because I see ayahs talking about an inital expansion but I'm not sure if this is in reference to the big bang or not.

Bing bang is a theory neither accepted nor rejected till now. 7 days is a symbolic, not actual, as a day is calculated by the movement of sun and at that time sun was in the process of creation.
