41:11 Then turned He to the heaven when it was smoke, and said unto it and unto the earth: Come both of you, willingly or loth. They said: We come, obedient.
41:12 Then He ordained them seven heavens in two Days and inspired in each heaven its mandate; and we decked the nether heaven with lamps, and rendered it inviolable. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Knower.
 
It took six days to create heaven and earth. The verse 41:10 says four days "alike" meaning that the first two days mentioned in the previuos verse are part of it. Counting it this way we get six days as in all other verses.
