Relation between Solar and Lunar Years

Qur’aanic Verse 18.25:

18.25

Transliteration:

25. Walabithoo fee kahfihim thalatha mi-atin sineena waizdadoo tisAAan

Translation:

25. And they (Men of the Cave) remained in their cave for three hundred years and some add nine to the number.9

 

Study Note:

 9. There is a strange and remarkable thing about these two numbers 300 and 309. 300 solar years are equal to 309 lunar years. The divine Verse could also therefore be indicative of this relationship between the two systems of counting time. No man at the time the Qur’aan was revealed could have the knowledge of this relationship. Here is yet another evidence/sign that the Qur’aan is divine.

============================================

The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.
