Sun and Moon are time calculating devices;


Where in the Quran does it say how many days are in a year or how many months are in a year or how many hours are in a day?  From Quran we know that Quran is fully detailed, however when we search for these “time calculation” answers we do not find them. The question is why not? Today we find answer to this question!

It is absolutely correct that Quran is fully detailed, because we do find these “time calculation” answers in the Quran, if we know where to look for.  Following are the verses and the codes which describe this, criteria.  There are many examples of hidden information in the Quran which could be prised out using the mathematical miracle of 19 and inspiration from God.

[6:96]  At the crack of dawn, He causes the morning to emerge. He made the night still, and He rendered the sun and the moon to serve as calculation devices. Such is the design of the Almighty, the Omniscient.

Year, Month, and Day confirmed in the Quran;

There are 12 months in a lunar year as well as Solar year and there are 12 hours in a day and 12 hours in a night.  Thus when we add the chapter, verse number above where it states that sun and the moon are calculating devices with 12 we get 6 + 96 + 12 = 114 which is 19 x 6 or 114 / 190 = 0.6.  Confirming, mathematically that the sun and the moon recognise the timing system of this world by God’s leave. The Position 6 describes “Caution”, indeed the number 12 used in the code has multiple meaning, it could mean months in a year and it could also mean hours in the day and night.

Also when you concatenate 24 hours, 12 months and 364 days in a year in that order with this verse you get complete multiple of 19.  Thus Quran recognises 24 hour day;


6 96 24 12 364 = 366442756 x 19 or 6 96 24 12 364 / 190 = 36644275.6

The Position 6 describes caution, there are 12 months in both lunar and solar years, therefore caution should be taken here to understand the fact that this code is only specific to solar year. This fact becomes apparent when we look at the facts regarding lunar year, month and day. Since lunar year, month and day are changeable, but this code has precise values for year, month and day, we know that this code is specific to solar year, month and day. The Temporal connection is correct because the day, month and year are in respective order the day comes first with 24 hours, days form 12 months and months added together form year with 364 days. The chapter and verse (6:96) is left most which means is the most recent. Indeed in great scheme of things Quran was revealed long time after God created the day, month and year. This means Quran is more recent addition. The Level is 9 which is “Misconceptions clarified” indeed some traditional Muslims today only recognise lunar timing when referring to the Quran. They say only lunar months are mentioned in the Quran and not the solar months. However, in this code we recognise the fact that the Quran is a global message which caters for both lunar and solar timing systems.

The little matter of 364 or 365 days in a year;

Why are 364 days in a year?  364 days are 52 weeks x 7 days which gives us 364 days in the year, thus the above code is correct, however the calendar year has 1 day added to it thus the total days in a year becomes 365, this fact is also coded in the Quran as follows;

[17:12]  We rendered the night and the day two signs. We made the night dark, and the day lighted, that you may seek provisions from your Lord therein. This also establishes for you a timing system, and the means of calculation. We thus explain everything in detail.


The above verse has emphasis on “system” adding 1 day is approximation which is part of the system created by humans. Also there is emphasis on the day and the night, while (6:96) did not, thus 365 days in the year is within the context of this verse where a day is mentioned in this verse and a day is added to the number of days in an year conventionally making the total number of days in a year to be 365; 365 24 17 12 = 19223248 x 19 or 365 24 17 12 / 190 = 1922324.8. The Temporal connection is correct. The days in year and hours in a day are left most which means that these two entities are the most recent. So the question arise why is it so, when we have seen the code above with (6:96) that the chapter and verse is left most and reason for this was that Quran is more recent while hours, months and year are historical? The reason for year and hour being left most in the code for (17:12) is that the 365 days in a year is a human invention which came about quite recently after the Quran was revealed. Position 8 describes issues, thus an issue has been resolved with this code. The issue being why 364 days in a year is coded in the Quran and not 365 days in a year. Hence one can see both number of days in a year are coded in the Quran, this indeed is a great gift from God to us, bringing us up to date with the 21st century. The Level is 5 which describe “Detailing information”, indeed this code is detailing that 365 days in a year are coded in the Quran, including minutest detail like an addition of day to the original sum of days in a year to make it up to 365 days in a year. Thus when we consider all these codes we find nth level of detail describing days, months and year of lunar and solar systems confirmed. Finally we also confirm that day and night both consist of 12 hours. This fact is based on the code with (6:96) above.
