Is a day with Allaah one thousand years or fifty thousand years?

Is a
day with Allaah one thousand years or fifty thousand years?
Bismillahir rahmaanir raheem, asalaamu
'alaykum, please answer, this is very important:
Does Allah's day equal to 1,000 human years (Sura 22:47, 32:5) or 50,000
human years (Sura 70:4) Jazakallaahu khayr.


Praise be to Allaah.

Shaykh Muhammad al-Ameen al-Shanqeeti said in his book Daf’
Ayhaam al-Idtiraab ‘an Aayaat al-Kitaab (p. 158):

“The aayah (interpretation of the meaning) ‘…And,
verily, a day with your Lord is as a thousand years of what you reckon’ [al-Hajj
22:47] indicates that the length of a day with Allaah is a thousand years. The same is
indicated by the aayah (interpretation of the meaning) ‘He arranges (every) affair
from the heavens to the earth, then it (the affair) will go up to Him, in one Day, the
space whereof is a thousand years of your reckoning.’ [al-Sajdah 32:5]. Another
aayah indicates something different (interpretation of the meaning): ‘The angels
and the Rooh [Jibreel] ascend to Him in a Day the measure whereof is fifty thousand
years’ [al-Ma’aarij 70:4].

There are two ways in which these aayaat may be reconciled:

The first was reported by Ibn Abi Haatim via Sammaak from ‘Ikrimah
from Ibn ‘Abbaas: the day of a thousand years mentioned in Soorat al-Hajj is one of
the six days in which Allaah created the heavens and the earth; the day of a thousand
years mentioned in Soorat al-Sajdah is the length of time it takes for a matter to go up
to Allaah; and the day of fifty thousand years is the Day of Resurrection.

The second (way of reconciling the aayaat) is that what is meant by all
of them is the Day of Resurrection, and the difference in the time span depends on whether
a person is a believer or a kaafir. This is indicated by the aayah (interpretation of the
meaning): ‘Truly that Day will be a Hard Day, far from easy for the
disbelievers.” [al-Muddaththir 74:9-10]. These two suggestions were mentioned by
the author of al-Itqaan. And Allaah knows best.”

Following note from Muslim Quran online Blog 

The first lesson to be learned by all Muslims is the importance of the Reading Quran Online. All Muslim should learn holy Quran online  is the Book of Allah All mighty. Every word which the quran reciter recites or he read quran is the word of Allah it is mentioned in Quran in Arabic that it is the guidance which has come from Allah. That is why we as Muslim say it is the Holy Book. We should  learn quran and focus on quran teaching thought by the quran tutor to the students and the tutor should arrange the kids quran lessons in such an easy manner so they can understand it easily and make there quran recitation online as beautiful as he could and teach them that the words of Koran were sent by Allah to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) through the angel Jibraeel. And further more elaborate wile reading quran with teaching them the quran tafseer and the tajweed quran with its rules let then do quran memorization in the proper manner We as Muslim should respect the teachings of Quran and in every other manner when we are reading it or when we listen to Quran  wake up Muslims and spread the word of Islam to
