Numbers in the Qur’an, Part 2

In first part we tried to learn the cardinal numbers in the Qur’an. Here are the ordinal numbers and a few fractions that are found mentioned in the Qur’an. 

First = اوّل Awwal (3:96) and الْأُولَىٰ  Oola (56:62)

Second = ثَانِيَ Thaani (9: 40)

Third = ثَالِثٍ Thaalith (36: 14)  and الثَّالِثَةَ Thaalithah (53:20)

Fourth = رابع Raabi’a (18: 22)

Fifth = خامس Khamis (24: 7)

Sixth = سادس Saadith (18: 22)

Eighth = ثامن Thaamin (18: 22)

1/2 Half  = نصف Nisf (4: 11)

1/3 One-third = ثلث Thuluthu (4:11)

2/3 Two-third = ثُلُثَا Thuluthaa  (4:11) / ثُلُثَيِ  Thuluthayi (73:20) / ثُّلُثَانِ Thuluthani 4:176

1/4 One-fourth = ربع Rubu’u (4:12)

1/5 One-fifth = خمس Khumus (8:41)

1/6 One-sixth = سُّدُسُ Thuduth (4:11)

1/8 One-eight = ثُّمُنُ Thumun 4:12

  2. Assalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakathu,

    JazakAllahu khayr for this beneficial compilation.

    There are just a few things I would like to mention/add:

    Thaalithah (feminine)

    This number is mentioned in the Surat An-Najm, concerning Manat (53:20)

    وَمَنَاةَ الثَّالِثَةَ الْأُخْرَىٰ – 53:20

    Secondly, the ordinal form for the number 10 is ‘Aashir. With regards to the verse with Me’shaar that you have referenced from Surat Saba, there appears to be a different meaning. And Allah knows best.

    BarakAllahu feek.
