This article lists all occurrences of the words al-dunya (ٱلدُّنْيَا) and al-akhira (الآخرة) in the Qur'an. These words do not appear in the dual or plural forms, so this word count will be easier than others.

Al-Dunya (ٱلدُّنْيَا)

The word dunya is derived from the trilateral root دنو (d-n-w). Just like from the root سلم (s-l-m) we can derive different words, like submission (al-islam, الإسلام) and peace (al-salam, السلم), from the root دنو we can also derive different words. The first word in the Qur'an with this root is adna (أَدْنَىٰ), meaning "worse":

  • Qur'an 2:61 "...exchange that which is better for that which is worse (أَدْنَىٰ, adna)..."

Words derived from this root can also have a meaning of "nearer" or "lower" or "lesser".

Here is the list of occurrences of the word dunya:
