This article contains a list of all the occurrences of the word "day" (يوم - transliterated as "yawm") in all its forms in the Qur'an. It also counts the total number of occurrences, number of occurrences in singular/plural/dual separately and the number of occurrences, where the word consists only of the three arabic letters يوم (regardless of diacritics). The purpose is to refute the apologist argument, that this word appears 365 times in the Qur'an, just like there are 365 days in the non-islamic Gregorian calendar, which "cannot be a coincidence" (although it could be a coincidence even if it was true), and therefore the Qur'an must be from god.

List[edit]

Apologists often (always) don't present the full list[1], but there it is:

So the word appears 475 times in all forms, 217 times in يوم form and 445 times in the singular and it does not appear 365 times as some apologists like to claim.

Grammatical forms counted by apologists[edit]

Now let's look at the questionable counting method used by apologists. There are 38 forms of this word used in the Quran. Here is a list of all these forms, with number of occurrences and with demonstration of the apologist way of counting.

A quick guide for non-Arabs:

  • The letter after m determines case
    • yawmu - nominative
    • yawma - accusative
      • When indefinite noun is accusative, the letter ا (alif) is suffixed
    • yawmi - genitive
  • wa- (و) prefix means "and"
  • bi- (ب) prefix means "in" or "with"
  • fa- (ف) prefix means "then"
  • li- (ل) prefix means "to" or "for"
  • al- (ال) prefix generally means the word is definite, but with the word yawm, al-yawm means "today".
    • bi- + al- becomes bil-
    • wa- + al- becomes wal-
    • fa- + al- becomes fal-
  • The "n" at the end means indefinite. If there is no al- prefix making it definite nor -n suffix making it indefinite, than it's possessive "day of".
  • ayyaam is plural, yawmayn is dual.
  • -kum suffix means "your", -hum or -him means "their"
  • yawma-idhin means "that day"

Yellow are forms ignored by apologists and orange are singular forms ignored by apologists.

Since apologists are counting complicated forms like wa-bil-yawmi, we cannot say that they count only the "simple" or "basic" forms. And by counting words with prefixes, they are inconsistent by not counting words with suffixes, like yawmi-kum. Their choice of grammatical forms counted is very arbitrary. They exclude 20 (including 11 singular) forms out of 38. If they counted all forms, they wouldn't get 365, if they counted only singular forms, they wouldn't get to 365. Since there are so many ways for arbitrary selection from 38 numbers, it is not a miracle that one of those selections turned out to have an interesting sum.

Conclusions[edit]

Main[edit]

  • The word يوم does not appear in the Qur'an 365 times, as some apologists like to claim.
  • The word يوم (day) in all its forms appears 475 times in the Qur'an.
  • The word يوم appears 445 times in its singular form in the Qur'an.
  • The word يوم in its basic form (consisting only of the trilateral root ي - و - م (ya - waw - mim) without any suffix/prefix letters and while ignoring the differences in diacritics) appears 217 times in the Qur'an.
  • To arrive at 365 occurrences, apologists exclude 3 dual and 27 plural forms, 10 singular occurrences with suffixed possessive pronouns and 70 forms of the word يومئذ (yawma-ithin, which means "that day"), but allow 91 words with prefixes بِ (bi), وَ (wa), فَ (fa) or لِ (li). They also allow 75 occurrences with the ال (al) prefix, although اليوم (al-yawm) often means "today".

Other[edit]

  • Even if the word يوم appeared 365 times in its basic form, these words would not be the same because there are still differences in diacritics, which change the meaning and pronunciation (يَوْمَ / يَوْمٍ / يَوْمِ / يَوْمٌ / يَوْمُ .. - yawma / yawmin / yawmi / yawmun / yawmu ..).
  • Many times the word "day" refers to the Day of Resurrection and its length is not 1 day, but 50 000 years [2]
  • يومئذ (yawma-ithin) means "that day" [3] and not "then forth" and even if we excluded it because it means "then forth", then we should also exclude اليوم, because it means "today".
  • يوما has the letter ا (alif) as a suffix to indicate accusative [4], so it is not the basic form.
  • The word "day" is also used to describe the supposed six days of creation of the world. We can see that this word always means "day" and never "epoch" or "period" so it literally talks about six days of creation, which is scientifically inaccurate.
  • A year in Islam's lunar calendar has 354 days and not 365. [5]
  • The Earth doesn't orbit around the Sun exactly 365 days, but approximately 365.25 days, so if the word appeared 365 times and signified the time needed for the earth to orbit around the Sun, it still wouldn't be accurate. So if the whole number 365 means anything, then it is the number of days in the non-Islamic Gregorian calendar.
  • According to Islam, the Sun rises on one side [6]of the flat earth[7][8], then goes over the earth, then sets on the other side [9], then goes under the throne of Allah (it doesn't shine on the other side of the round earth, creating day on the other side) and there it asks for permission to rise again.[10] So the idea of a rotating earth, which orbits around the Sun, is not compatible with the Islamic doctrine.

  6. "Until when he reached the land of the rising of the sun" Quran 18:90
  7. "And Allah has made the earth for you as a carpet (spread out)" Quran 71:19 (and many other verses)
  8. "As for His words sutihat, ‘laid out flat’, this on a literal reading suggests that the earth is flat, which is the opinion of the scholars of the Law, and not a sphere as astronomers have it" - Al-Jalalayn's interpretation of the verse 8:20
  9. "Until, when he reached the setting of the sun, he found it [as if] setting in a spring of dark mud." Quran 18:86
  10. "The Prophet (ﷺ) asked me at sunset, "Do you know where the sun goes (at the time of sunset)?" I replied, "Allah and His Apostle know better." He said, "It goes (i.e. travels) till it prostrates Itself underneath the Throne and takes the permission to rise again, and it is permitted and then (a time will come when) it will be about to prostrate itself but its prostration will not be accepted, and it will ask permission to go on its course but it will not be permitted, but it will be ordered to return whence it has come and so it will rise in the west. And that is the interpretation of the Statement of Allah: "And the sun Runs its fixed course For a term (decreed). that is The Decree of (Allah) The Exalted in Might, The All- Knowing." " Sahih al-Bukhari Book 59, Hadith 10 (3199)
