The Derivatives of the Word Day

We saw that the singular “day” (yewm) is mentioned 365 times, and the plural of it, 30 times in the Quran. All of the derivatives of the word “day” are used 475 times. This means that the singular, plural and all the other derivatives add up to 475. 475 is equal to 19×25. (After we study this mathematical miracle in this section, we will also examine it in the “miracle of 19” section and show more clearly what the number 19 indicates.) Sometimes, the MMLC and the miracle of the number 19 may be interconnected, as in this example. Since the use of the word “day” shows the miraculous characteristic, apart from the miracle of the number 19, I have presented the discoveries on it in the MMLC section too. Like the multiplier 19, the number 25 also has a significant meaning. As I have already mentioned, days are formed as a result of the relationship between the earth and the sun. The earth revolves around its own axis 365 times while completing its cycle around the sun, and during this time the sun also revolves around itself. As the earth revolves around itself 365 times, how many times must the sun itself have revolved? 25 times exactly. This number, pointed out by the miracle that is easy to understand but impossible to imitate, was not known at the time of the descent of the Quran in the region in question. They had no idea about it. It is a miracle that the Quran, by references to repeated numbers, points out; and the fact that those numbers indicated things unknown at the time is another miracle.

On the other hand, the figure 19, multiplier of 25, has an important role within the context of the concept of the relationship between the sun / the earth and day. A Meton cycle—that is when the sun, the earth and the moon come to the same line,—occurs once in every 19 years. That is to say, the sun turns around itself the number 19×25=475 times in a Meton cycle (Read the next chapter, MMLC 4). Yes, exactly 475 times. This number is equal to the number of times the derivatives of the word “day” are used in the Quran.
