Dunya and akhira word count in the Qur'an

1 byte removed, 19:53, 16 November 2016
** The word ''dunya'' doesn't always mean "world" and the word ''akhira'' doesn't always mean "hereafter". So the miracle claim is wrong. And phrasing it without the translations is misleading, because it makes people assume that those words always mean "this world" and "hereafter".
** What is the message behind the number 115? This number seems to be a product of coincidence.
** What is the message behind these numbers being equal? Is worldly life the same as the hereafter? Are they equally important? Are they equally long? Shouldn't the hereafter be much more important and have a possibly double word count if there is any thing anything miraculous in the Qur'an?
** A better way of describing the miracle would have been like this: The word ''ad-dunya'' (ٱلدُّنْيَا), meaning either "this world" or "nearer" or "lower" and so on, appears 115 times in the Qur'an; the word ''al-akhira'' (الآخرة), meaning either "hereafter" or "second" or "latter" and so on, appears 71 times in the Qur'an and if we count also the words with prefixes like bi- (ب) or waw- (و) the word appears 115 times. So, that is the same number of times as the word ''ad-dunya''.
