We saw earlier that the word “day” in the Quran, with its singular,
plural and derivative uses, constitutes a marvelous pattern. Apart from
this, the phrases of the same word also produce mathematical miracles
as well. For example, we see this miracle in phrases like “that day”
used in connection with the end of the world (yewme izin) and “the
day of resurrection” (yewmul qiyameh). Both phrases are used 70
times, out of the 475 occurrences of all the derivatives of the word
“day.” Here are two example verses for these words:
8- Many faces will be joyous on that day.
67- …the whole earth is within His fist on the day of resurrection.
39-The Throngs, 67a
