BOOK FOUR;ALLAH’S MATHEMATICAL
MIRACLES IN THE QUR’AN

WORD REPETITIONS IN THE QUR’AN

Apart from the miraculous characteristics of the Qur'an which we have looked into so far, it also contains what we can term "mathematical miracles." There are many examples of this fascinating Qur'anic aspect. One example of this is the number of repetitions of certain words in the Qur'an. Some related words are surprisingly repeated the same number of times. Below is a list of such words and the number of repetitions in the Qur'an.

The statement of "seven heavens" (saba`a samawaat) is repeated seven times. "The creation of the heavens" (khalq al-samawaat) is also repeated seven times.

SEVEN HEAVENS 7 times
THE CREATION OF THE HEAVENS 7 times

"Day (yawm)" is repeated 365 times in singular form, while its plural and dual forms "days" (ayyaam and yawmayn) together are repeated 30 times. The number of repetitions of the word "month" (shahar) is 12.

DAY yawm 365 times
DAYS ayyaam,yawmayn 30 times
MONTH shahar 12 times

The number of repetitions of the words "plant"(nabat) and "tree"(shajar) is the same: 26

PLANT 26 times
TREE 26 times

The word "payment or reward"(jazaa’) is repeated 117 times, while the expression "forgiveness" (maghfirah), which is one of the basic morals of the Qur'an, is repeated exactly twice that amount, 234 times.

PAYMENT 117 times
FORGIVENESS 2x117=234 times

When we count the word "Say," (qal) we find it appears 332 times. We arrive at the same figure when we count the phrase "they said." (qalu)

SAY 332 times
THEY SAID 332 times

The number of times the words, "world" (dunyaa) and "Hereafter" (aakhirah) are repeated is also the same: 115

WORLD 115 times
HEREAFTER 115 times

The word "satan" (shaytaan) is used in the Qur'an 88 times, as is the word "angels" (mala'ikah).

SATAN 88 times
ANGEL 88 times

The word "faith" (eemaan) (without genitive) is repeated 25 times throughout the Qur'an as is also the word "infidelity" (kufr).

FAITH 25 times
INFIDELITY 25 times

The words "Paradise" (jannah) and "Hell" (jahannam) are each repeated 77 times. PARADISE 77 times HELL 77 times

PARADISE 77 times
HELL 77 times

The word "zakaah" is repeated in the Qur'an 32 times and the number of repetitions of the word "blessing" (barakah) is also 32.

ZAKAAH 32 times

BLESSING

The expression "the righteous" (al-abraar) is used 6 times and "the wicked" (al-fujjaar) is used half as much, i.e., 3 times.

THE RIGHTEOUS al-abraar 6 times

THE WICKED

al-fujjaar 3 times

The number of times the words "summer-hot" (sayf-harr) and "winter-cold" (shita’-bard) are repeated is the same: 5.

SUMMER-HOT 1 + 4 = 5 time
WINTER-COLD 1 + 4 = 5 time

The words "wine" (khamr) and "intoxication" (saqara) are repeated in the Qur'an the same number of times: 6

WINE al-abraar khamr 6 times

INTOXICATION

saqara 6 times

The number of appearances of the words "mind" (‘aql) and "light"(noor) is the same: 49.

MIND 49 time
LIGHT 49 time

The words "language" (lisan) and "advice"(mevize) are both repeated 25 times.

LANGUAGE 25 time
ADVICE 25 time

The words "benefit"(naf`) and "corrupt"(fasad) both appear 50 times.

BENEFIT 50 time

DISASTER 75 time
THANKS 75 time

"Sun" (shams) and "light" (noor) both appear 33 times in the Qur'an.

*In counting the word "light" only the simple forms of the word were included.

SUN al-abraar khamr 33 times

LIGHT

noor 33 times

The number of appearances of "right guidance" (al-hudaa) and "mercy" (al-rahmah) is the same: 79

ANNOYANCE 79 time
REJOICE 79 time

The words "annoyance and distress" (dayq) and "rejoice" (tamaniyye) are both repeated 13 times in the Qur'an.

TROUBLE 13 time
PEACE 13 time

The words "man" (rajul) and "woman" (mar’ha) are also employed equally: 23 times.

TROUBLE 13 time
PEACE 13 time

The number of times the words "man" and "woman" are repeated in the Qur'an, 23, is at the same time that of the chromosomes from the egg and sperm in the formation of the human embryo. The total number of human chromosomes is 46; 23 each from the mother and father.

WOMAN 23 time
MAN 23 time

"Treachery" (khiyaanah) is repeated 16 times, while the number of repetitions of the word "foul" (khabeeth) is 16.•

TREACHERY 16 time
FOUL 16 time

"Human being" (insan) is used 65 times: the sum of the number of references to the stages of man's creation is the same: i.e.

HUMAN BEING
insan 65 times
SOIL
turaab 15 times
DROP OF SPERM
nutfah
12 times
EMBRYO `alaq 6 times
A HALF FORMED
LUMP OF FLESH
muthghah 3 times
BONE `idham 15 times
FLESH lahm 12 times
TOTAL   65 times

The word "salaawaat" appear five times in the Qur'an, and Allah has commanded man to perform the prayer (salat) five times a day.

The word "land" (barr, yabas) appears 13 times in the Qur'an and the word "sea"(bahr) 32 times, giving a total of 45 references. If we divide that number by that of the number of references to the land we arrive at the figure 28.888888888889%. The number of total references to land and sea, 45, divided by the number of references to the sea in the Qur'an, 32, is 71.111111111111%. Extraordinarily, these figures represent the exact proportions of land and sea on the Earth today.252

NUMEROLOGICAL CALCULATIONS (ABJAD) IN THE QUR’AN

Every letter in the Arabic alphabet has a numerical (gematrical) value. In other words, in Arabic every letter stands for a number. A number of calculations can be made from this basis. These are referred to as numerological (abjad) calculations or "hisaab al-jummal."253 Muslims who took advantage of the fact that every letter of the alphabet represents a number have used this in a number of fields. Ilm al-jafr is one of these.

Jafr is the science of foretelling what is likely to happen in the future. One of the methods employed by people who engage in this is to compare symbolic forms and letters' numerological values. The main difference between "abjad" and "jafr" methods is that the former refers to what has already taken place and the latter to what is likely to take place in the future.254

This method of calculation is a form of writing which goes back several centuries and which was widely used before the revelation of the Qur'an. Everything which happened in Arab history was written down by attributing numerical values to letters thus the date of every event was recorded. These dates were obtained by adding up the particular numerical values of every letter employed.

When certain verses of the Qur'an are examined in the light of the "abjad" method, we see that a number of dates emerge which are fully in accordance with the meanings of those verses. When we see that things referred to in these verses actually happened on the dates obtained by this method, we understand that there is a secret indication regarding those events in the verses. (Allah knows best.)

The 1969 Moon Landing is Indicated in the Qur'an

The Hour has drawn near and the Moon has split. (Qur'an, 54:1)

The Arabic word "inshaqqa" (split) used in the above verse is derived from the word "shaqqa," which can also be used to mean "causing something to rise, ploughing or digging the soil":

We pour down plentiful water, then split the earth into furrows. Then We make grain grow in it, and grapes and herbs and olives and dates and luxuriant gardens and orchards and meadows. (Qur'an, 80:25-31)

As we can see, the word "shaqqa" in the above verse is not being used in the sense of "dividing into two" but of "slicing through the soil, reaping various crops." When evaluated in this sense, the meaning of the word "shaqqa" in the expression "the Moon has split" (Qur'an, 54:1) can also be seen to be referring to the 1969 moon landing and the studies performed on the Moon land. (Allah knows best.) In fact, there is another very important indication here: Some of the "abjad" values of certain words in this verse in Surat al-Qamar also point to the figure 1969.

One important point which needs to be stressed in this method of calculation is the likelihood of producing very large or irrelevant numbers. Despite the probability of a relevant number emerging being exceedingly small, it is striking that such a clear figure should result.

The Hour [has drawn near] and the Moon has split.

Hijri: 1390, Gregorian: 1969

The phrase "has drawn near" is not included in the count, since it comes in the beginning the Arabic.

In 1969, American astronauts carried out research on the Moon, dug the soil up with various pieces of equipment, split it and carried specimens back to Earth.

We must, however, make it clear that the splitting of the Moon is of course one of the miracles given to our Prophet (saas) by Allah. This miracle is revealed thus in a hadith:

The people of Mecca asked Allah's messenger (saas) to show them a miracle. So he showed them the Moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hiram' mountain. (Sahih Bukhari)

The above miracle is the splitting of the Moon revealed in the verse. However, since the Qur'an is a Book that addresses all times, one may think of this verse as referring to the exploration of the Moon in our own day. (Allah knows best.)

THE MIRACLE OF 19 IN THE QUR’AN

Another mathematical miracle of the Qur'an is the manner in which the number 19 is numerologically encoded in verses. This number is stressed in the words of the Qur'an: "There are nineteen in charge of it." (Qur'an, 74:30), and is encoded in various places in the Book. Some examples of this can be listed as follows:

The formula consists of 19 letters.

1st letter
8th letter
15th letter
2nd letter

The Qur'an consists of 114 (19 x 6) Suras.

The first Sura to be revealed (Sura 96) is the 19th from the end.

The first verses of the Qur'an to be revealed are the first five verses of Sura 96 and the total number of words in these verses is 19.

As we have seen, the first five verses consist of 19 words. The " " is a letter, not a word. Likewise, letters " " are not included in the calculation either.

The first Sura to be revealed, Surat al-'Alaq, consists of 19 verses and 285 (19 x 15) letters.

Surat an-Nasr, the final Sura to be revealed, consists of a total of 19 words.

There are 114 formulas in the Qur'an or 19 x 6.

•A total of 113 Suras in the Qur'an start with the formula. The only Sura not to start with one is the ninth, Surat at-Tawba. Surat an-Naml is the only Sura to have two formulas. One of these is at the beginning and the other in verse 30. Counting from Surat at-Tawba, which does not begin with the formula, Surat an-Naml follows 19 Suras on.

There is a formula at the beginning of the 27th Sura, Surat an-Naml, and in verse 30. There are thus two formulas in the 27th Sura. It is the formula in the 30th verse of the 27th Sura which completes the total of 114 formulas in the Qur'an. When we add together the number of the verse and the number of the Sura, 30 and 27, we find the number 57 (19 x 3).

The total number of Suras from Surat at-Tawba (9) to Surat an-Naml (27) is 342 (9 + 10 + 11 +12 +13 +14 +15 +16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27). That figure is 19 multiplied by 18.

The sum of all the occurrences of the name "Allah" in all the verses whose numbers are multiples of 19 (i.e., verses 19, 38, 57, 76, etc.) is 133, or 19 x 7.

The "abjad" value of the word "wahd" meaning "one" is 19. This word is used with various other words in the Qur'an, such as one door, one variety of food. It is used 19 times together with the name "Allah."

The total of the Sura and verse numbers of the occasions when the word "wahd" appears 19 times is 361: (19 x 19)

There are 38 (19 x 2) Suras without initial letters between the first Sura which has initial letters and the last to have them.

The word "Rahman" (All-Merciful) appears 57 (19 x 3) times in the Qur'an.

Thirty different numbers are mentioned in the Qur'an

The total of these numbers (again without taking repetitions into account) is 162,146. This is 19 x 8,534:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 19 +20 + 30 + 40 + 50 + 60 + 70 + 80 + 99 + 100 + 200 + 300 + 1,000 + 2,000 + 3,000 + 5,000 + 50,000 + 100,000 = 162,146 (19 x 8,534).

In addition to these thirty numbers, the Qur'an also refers to eight fractions: 1/10, 1/8, 1/6, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 2/3. The Qur'an thus contains a total of 38 (19 x 2) different numbers.

The Sura from the beginning to possess 19 verses is Surat al-Infitar. Another feature of this Sura is that its final word is "Allah." At the same time, this is the 19th appearance of the name "Allah" from the end.

The 50th Sura, which begins with the letter Qaf, contains a total of 57 (19 x 3) letters Qaf. There are also 57 letters Qaf in the 42nd Sura with a letter Qaf at the beginning. The 50th Sura contains 45 verses. Added together, these total 95 (19 x 5). There are 53 verses in the 42nd Sura. These again total 95 (42 + 53).

50th Sura

The abjad value of the word "Majeed," used for the Qur'an, in the first verse of Surah Qaf is 57 (19 x 3). As we have stated above, the total number of letters Qaf is also 57.

When we add together the number of times that the letter Qaf appears in the Qur'an, we reach a total of 798 (19 x 42). Forty-two is the number of another Sura with Qaf among its initial letters.

The letter Nun appears at the beginning of only the 68th Sura. The total number of times it appears in that Sura is 133 (19 x 7).

When we add together the number of verses (including the formulas) in Suras the number of which are multiples of 19, the following is noteworthy:

=266 (19x4)

The letters Ya and Sin appear at the beginning of Surah Ya Sin. The letter Sin appears 48 times in Surah Ya Sin and the letter Ya 237 times. The total of these letters is 285 (19 x 15).

Only one Sura, the seventh, begins with the initial letters "Alif, Lam, Mim, Sad." The letter Alif appears in this Sura 2,529 times, the letter Lam 1,530 times, the letter Mim 1,164 times and the letter Sad 97 times. These four letters thus appear a total of 2,529 + 1,530 + 1,164 + 97 times, or 5,320 (19 x 280) times

The letters Alif, Lam and Mim are the most frequently used letters in Arabic. They appear together at the beginning of six Suras: numbers 2, 3, 29, 30, 31 and 32. The number of times these three letters appear in each of these six Suras is a multiple of 19: 9,899 (19 x 521), 5,662 (19 x 298), 1,672 (19 x 88), 1,254 (19 x 66), 817 (19 x 43), and 570 (19 x 30), respectively. The total number of times all these three letters appear in the six Suras is 19,874 (19 x 1,046).

The initial letters Alif, Lam and Ra appear in Suras 10, 11, 12, 14 and 15. The total number of times these letters appear in these Suras is 2,489 (19 x 131), 2,489 (19 x 131), 2,375 (19 x 125), 1,197 (19 x 63) and 912 (19 x 48)

The frequency with which the initial letters Alif, Lam, Mim and Ra appear is 1,482 (19 x 78) in total. The letter Alif appears 605 times, Lam 480 times, Mim 260 times and Ra 137 times.

The initial letters Qaf, Ha, Ya, 'Ayn and Sad appear in only one Sura, the 19th. The letter Qaf appears 137 times in this Sura, Ha 175 times, Ya 343 times, 'Ayn 117 times and Sad 26 times. The total number of appearances of these five letters is 137 + 175 + 343 + 117 + 26 = 798 (19 x 42).

Other findings on this subject include:

In the whole of the Qur'an,

- the word "atee`" (obey!) appears 19 times,

- the words "`abd" (servant), "`aabid" (a person who serves) and "`abudu" (worship) appear a total of 152 (19 x 8) times,

The numerical abjad values of some of the names of Allah given below are also multiples of 19:

- Al-Waahid (The One) 19 (19 x 1)

- Al-Jaami` (The Gatherer) 114 (19 x 6)

The miracle of 19 in the Qur’an

The number 19 is the total of the numbers 9 and 10 to the power of 1. The difference between the numbers 9 and 10 to the power of 2 is again 19.

Pascal's triangle is an arithmetical one used in algebra and probability calculations.

The total of the first 19 numbers in the Pascal triangle is 57 (19 x 3).


Figure 2: The first 19 figures

Conclusion:

The total of the first 19 figures is a multiple of 19.

The total of the first 19 numbers is a multiple of 19.

The connection between the number 19 and the Pascal

triangle with regard to the revelation sequence of the Qur'anic verses

The 96th Sura, the first revealed, comes 19 before the end. It consists of 19 verses and contains a total of 285 letters (19x15). The first five verses of the revelation contain 76 (19 x 4) letters.

The first verses of the 68th Sura, the second to be revealed, consist of 38 (19 x 2) words.

The third revelation, the 73rd Sura, contains 57 (19 x 3) words.

It [the Qur’an] is simply a reminder to all the worlds. You will certainly know the truth of it after a while.
(Qur’an, 38:87-88)
