In Quran: the word "day" occurs 365 times

The fact that the word "day" appears 365 times in the Quran was confirmed in the footnote of verse 9:36 of the Authorized English Version of the Quran (quoted below) by Dr. Rashad Khalifa, God’s messenger of the covenant.

God's System: Twelve Months Per Year*

[9:36] The count of months, as far as GOD is concerned, is twelve.* This has been GOD's law, since the day He created the heavens and the earth. Four of them are sacred. This is the perfect religion; you shall not wrong your souls (by fighting) during the Sacred Months. However, you may declare all-out war against the idol worshipers (even during the Sacred Months), when they declare all-out war against you, and know that GOD is on the side of the righteous.

*9:36 The word "month" is mentioned in the Quran 12 times, and "day" 365 times.

The following data was compiled subsequently by Submitters to assist in verifying the count of the word "day" (singular) in the Quran. We begin by providing a link to all the occurrences (405 of them). Then we identify the different grammatical forms and remove the 30 occurrences that that are plural and further 10 that refer to possessive forms (e.g., "their day"). This leaves us with 365 occurrences.

Brother Ashraf from Canada discovered, by God's leave, that concatenating the sura and verse numbers from the 365 occurrences of the word day gives us a long 891-digit number that is a multiple of 19. God be glorified!
