#### In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

### Appendix 1 of the Authorized English translation of Quran by Rashad Khalifa, Ph.D.

[74:35] "One of the Great Miracles"

##### Part 2

##### WHY 19!

As pointed out later in this Appendix, all God's scriptures, not only the Quran, were mathematically coded with the number "19." Even the universe at large bears this divine mark. The number 19 can be looked upon as the Almighty Creator's signature on everything He created (see Appendix 38). The number "19" possesses unique mathematical properties beyond the scope of this Appendix. For example:

[1] It is a prime number.

[2] It encompasses the first numeral (1) and the last numeral (9), as if to proclaim God's attribute in 57:3 as the "Alpha and the Omega."

[3] It looks the same in all languages of the world. Both components, 1 and 9, are the only numerals that look the same in all languages.

The Lord our God is ONE! Therefore, you shall worship the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. [Deuteronomy 6:4-5] [Mark 12:29] [Quran 2:163, 17:22-23]

Letter | Value | |
---|---|---|

Hebrew | Arabic | |

V | W | 6 |

A | A | 1 |

H | H | 8 |

D | D | 4 |

19 |

[4] It possesses many peculiar mathematical properties. For example, 19 is the sum of the first powers of 9 and 10, and the difference between the second powers of 9 and 10. We now understand that the universal coding of God's creations with the number 19 rests in the fact that it is the gematrical value of the word "ONE" in all the scriptural languages - Aramaic, Hebrew, and Arabic.

The number 19, therefore, proclaims the First Commandment in all the scriptures: that there is only ONE God.

As shown in Table 7, the Aramaic, Hebrew, and Arabic alphabets used to double as numerals in accordance with a universally established system. The Hebrew word for "ONE" is "VAHD" (pronounced V-AHAD). In Arabic, the word for "ONE" is "WAHD" (pronounced WAAHED). See Table 20.

##### SUBMISSION.ORG: Editorial update to this section:

The number 19 is unique in possessing the following collective mathematical properties, for example:

- It is a prime number, devisable only by itself and one.
- It encompasses the first numeral (1) and the last numeral (9), as if to proclaim God's attribute in 57:3 as the "Alpha and the Omega".
- Its numerals look the same in all languages in the world. The numerals (1) and (9) look very much the same in, for example Arabic and English.
- 19 is the sum of the first powers of 9 and 10, and the difference between the second powers of 10 and 9.
- Number 19 is the numerical value of the word "ONE" in all the scriptural languages, Aramaic, Hebrew, and Arabic. The number 19, therefore proclaims the First commandment in all the scriptures: that there is only ONE GOD.

1356+3052 = 4408 (19x232) |

The word "Quran" occurs in the Quran 58 times, with one of them, in 10:15, referring to "another Quran." This particular occurrence, therefore, must be excluded. Thus, the frequency of occurrence of "this Quran" in the Quran is 57, or 19x3.

Two other grammatical forms of the word "Quran" occur in 12 verses. These include the word "Quranun" and the word "Quranahu." One of these occurr ences, in 13:31 refers to "another Quran" that cause the mountains to crumble. Another occurrence, in 41:44, refers to "a non-Arabic Quran." These two occurrences, therefore, are excluded. Table 21 shows a list of the suras and verses where the word "Quran," in all its grammatical forms, occurs.

##### A STRONG FOUNDATION

The Quran's first verse, "In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful," known as Basmalah, consists of 19 Arabic letters. Its constituent words occur in the Quran consistently in multiples of 19.

The first word | "Ism" (Name) | occurs 19 times. |

The second word | "Allah" (God) | occurs 2698 times (19x142) |

The third word | "Al-Rahman" (Most Gracious) | 57 times (19x3) |

The fourth word | "Al-Raheem" (Most Merciful) | 114 times (19x6) |

Professor Cesar Majul looked at the gematrical value of more than 400 attributes of God, and found only four names whose gematrical values are multiples of 19:

Divine Name | Gematrical Value | |
---|---|---|

1. | "Waahed" (One) | 19 |

2. | "Zul Fadl Al-`Azim" (Possessor of Infinite Grace) | 2698 |

3. | "Majid" (Glorious) | 57 |

4. | "Jaami`" (Summoner) | 114 |

As noted above, the only Divine Names whose gematrical values are divisible by 19 correspond exactly to the frequencies of occurrence of the BASMALAH's four words. The figure below illustrates this remarkable phenomenon:

Name (Ism) | 19 | (Waahed) One |

God (Allah) | 2698 | (Zul Fadl Al-`Azim) Possessor of Infinite Grace |

Most Gracious (Al-Rahman) | 57 | (Majid) Glorious |

Most Merciful (Al-Raheem) | 114 | (Jaami`) Gatherer |

##### The Five Pillars of Islam

Although the Quran provides numerous important commandments governing all aspects of our lives (see for example 17:22-38), five basic "pillars" have been traditionally emphasized. They are:

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | Total |
---|---|---|---|

2 | 123 | ||

3 | 200 | ||

- | - | - | - |

9 | 127 | 8128 | 8264 |

- | - | - | - |

72 | 28 | 406 | 506 |

73 | 9 | 45 | 127 |

2700 | 5312 | 308490 | 316502 (19x16658) |

1. Shahaadah: Bearing witness that there is no other god besides God.

2. Salat: Observing five daily Contact Prayers.

3. Seyaam: Fasting during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar (Ramadan).

4. Zakat: Giving away 2.5% of one's net income as a charity to specified people.

5. Hajj: Pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime for those who can afford it.

No. | Sura No. | Verses with Shahadah | Frequency of Shahadah |
---|---|---|---|

1. | 2 | 163,255 | 2 |

2. | 3 | 2,6,18 (twice) | 4 |

3. | 4 | 87 | 1 |

4. | 6 | 102,106 | 2 |

5. | 7 | 158 | 1 |

6. | 9 | 31 | 1 |

7. | 11 | 14 | 1 |

8. | 13 | 30 | 1 |

9. | 20 | 8,98 | 2 |

10. | 23 | 116 | 1 |

11. | 27 | 26 | 1 |

12. | 28 | 70,88 | 2 |

13. | 35 | 3 | 1 |

14. | 39 | 6 | 1 |

15. | 40 | 3,62,65 | 3 |

16. | 44 | 8 | 1 |

17. | 59 | 22,23 | 2 |

18. | 64 | 13 | 1 |

19. | 73 | 9 | 1 |

507 | 1592 | 29 | |

507 + 1592 + 29 = 2128 = 19x112 |

Like everything else in the Quran, these are mathematically structured.

##### 1. One God (Shahaadah):

As mentioned earlier, the word "ONE" that refers to God occurs in the Quran 19 times. The ref- erence to God "ALONE" occurs 5 times, and the sum of the sura and verse numbers where we find these five occurrences is 361, 19x19.

The "First Pillar of Islam" is stated in 3:18 as "LAA ELAAHA ELLA HOO" (There is no other god besides Him). This most important expression occurs in 19 suras. The first occurrence is in 2:163, and the last occurrence is in 73:9. Table 22 shows that the total of sura numbers, plus the number of verses between the first and last occurrences, plus the sum of these verse numbers is 316502, or 19x16658.

Also, by adding the numbers of the 19 suras where LAA ELAAHA ELLA HOO occurs, plus the verse numbers where this crucial expression is found, plus the total number of occurrences (29), the Grand Total comes to 2128, or 19x112. The details are shown in Table 23.

##### 2. The Contact Prayers "Salat":

The word "Salat" occurs in the Quran 67 times, and when we add the numbers of suras and verses of these 67 occurrences, the total comes to 4674, or 19x246 (see INDEX OF THE QURAN).

##### 3. Fasting (Seyaam):

The commandment to fast is mentioned in 2:183,184,185,187,196; 4:92; 5:89, 95; 33:35, 35; & 58:4. The total of these numbers is 1387, or 19x73. It is noteworthy that 33:35 mentions fasting twice, one for the believing men, and the other for the believing women.

##### 4. The Obligatory Charity (Zakat): &

5. Hajj Pilgrimage to Mecca:

While the first three "Pillars of Islam" are obligatory upon all Muslim men and women, the Zakat and Hajj are decreed only for those who can afford them. This explains the interesting mathematical phenomenon associated with Zakat and Hajj.

The Zakat charity is mentioned in 2:43,83,110,177,277; 4:77,162; 5:12,55, 7:156; 9:5,11,18,71; 18:81; 19:13,31,55; 21:73; 22:41,78; 23:4; 24:37,56; 27:3; 30:39; 31:4; 33:33; 41:7; 58:13; 73:20; and 98:5. These numbers add up to 2395. This total does not quite make it as a multiple of 19; it is up by 1.

The Hajj Pilgrimage occurs in 2:189,196,197; 9:3; and 22:27. These numbers add up to 645, and this total does not quite make it as a multiple of 19; it is down by 1.

Thus, Zakat and Hajj, together, give a total of 2395+645 = 3040 = 19x160.

162146 (19 x 8534) |

The Quran's suras, verses, words, and letters are not only mathematically composed, but also arranged into a superhuman structure that is purely mathematical, i.e., the literary content has nothing to do with such an arrangement.

Since the physical construction of the Quran is purely mathematical, it would be expected that the numbers mentioned in the Quran must conform with the Quran's 19-based code.

A total of 30 unique numbers are mentioned throughout the Quran, and the sum of all these numbers is 162146, a multiple of 19 (162146 = 19x8534). Table 24 lists all the numbers mentioned in the Quran, without the repetitions.

The numbers which are mentioned only once in the Quran are: 11, 19, 20, 50, 60, 80, 99, 300, 2000, 3000, 5000, 50000, and 100000.

All the numbers mentioned in the Quran, with repetitions, occur 285 times, and this number is a multiple of 19; 285 = 19x15.

##### THE NUMBERS OF SURAS AND VERSES

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | TOTAL |
---|---|---|---|

1 | 7 | 28 | 36 |

2 | 286 | 41041 | 41329 |

- | - | - | - |

9 | 127 | 8128 | 8264 |

113 | 5 | 15 | 133 |

114 | 6 | 21 | 141 |

6555 | 6234 | 333410 | 346199 (19x19x959) |

The numbering system of the Quran's suras and verses has been perfectly preserved. Only a few unauthorized and easily detectable printings deviate from the standard system that is divinely guarded.

When we add the numbers of all suras, plus the number of verses in every sura, plus the sum of verse numbers, the Grand total for the whole Quran comes to 346199, 19x19x959. Table 25 is an abbreviated presentation of these data. Thus, the slightest alteration of a single sura or verse would have destroyed this system. As shown in Table 16, if we consider only the 29 initialed suras, these same data produce a Grand Total which is also a multiple of 19. It follows that the data for the un-initialed suras are also divisible by 19.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | TOTAL |
---|---|---|---|

1 | 7 | 28 | 36 |

4 | 176 | 15576 | 15756 |

- | - | - | - |

9 | 127 | 8128 | 8264 |

114 | 6 | 21 | 141 |

5733 | 3491 | 146842 | 156066 (19x8214) |

Table 26 is an abbreviated presentation of the same data related to the 85 un- initialed suras.

Now let us look at another set of miracles involving the sura and verse numbers.

Sura | Sura,# of Verses, Verse #'s & Sum of Verse #'s |
---|---|

1 | 17123456728 |

2 | 228612345........28641041 |

- | - |

114 | 114612345621 |

Total is 759 digits & a multiple of 19 |

Write down the sura number, followed by the number of verses in that sura, then the number of every verse, and finally, the sum of verse numbers. So, for Sura 1 you would write 1 for the sura, then 7 for the number of verses, 1234567 for each verse number, and finally 28 for the sum of verse numbers, i.e. 1 7 123- 4567 28.

The number for Sura 2 will look like this: 2 286 123456...286 41041. Do the same for all the 114 suras, and then add these numbers. The total consists of 759 digits, and is a multiple of 19.

Sura | Total Verses & Sum of Verses |
---|---|

1 | 728 |

2 | 28641041 |

3 | 20020100 |

- | - |

114 | 621 |

4859309774 = 19x255753146 |

Now write down the total number of verses in a sura, followed by the sum of verse numbers, and keep all numbers justified to the left. For example, the number of verses in Sura 1 is 7, and the sum of verse numbers is 28. Thus, the combined number for Sura 1 will be 7 28, for Sura 2 it will be 286 41041, for Sura 3 it will be 200 20100; and so on to Sura 114 for which the combined number is 6 21. Remember that these numbers are written all the way to the left, as shown in Table 28. Then add them in the usual manner, from right to left. The total of all these left justified numbers is 4,859,309,774 or 19 x 255753146.

Sura | Verse #'s & Sum of Verses |
---|---|

1 | 123456728 |

2 | 1234...28641041 |

- | - |

114 | 12345621 |

Total is 757 digits & a multiple of 19 |

Finally, do the same thing as above (continuing to keep all numbers left justified), except write down the number of every verse, instead of the total number of verses. For example, the number of Sura 1 consists of its seven verse numbers (1234567) combined with the sum of those numbers (28). Thus the combined number for Sura 1 will be 1234567 28. The combined number for Sura 114 will be 123456 21.

Table 29 demonstrates this process. The total of all these left just ified numbers consists of 757 digits, and is still a multiple of 19.

##### Superhuman Numerical Combinations

Let us write down the number of each verse in the Quran, preceded for each sura by the number of verses in that sura. Thus, Sura 1, which consists of seven verses, will be represented by the number 7 1234567. What we are doing here is forming long numbers by writing the numbers of verses next to each other. To find the number representing Sura 2, you write down the number of verses in this sura, 286, followed by the number of every verse, written next to each other. Thus, the number representing Sura 2 will look like this: 286 12345.....284285286. The two numbers representing the first two suras are:

7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 & 286 1 2 3 4 5.....284 285 286.

Putting these two numbers together to form one number representing the first two suras, we get this number:

7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 286 1 2 3 4 5.....284 285 286.

This process is continued until every verse in the Quran is written down, thus forming one very long number encompassing the number in every verse in the Quran. The number representing the whole Quran is a multiple of 19 & consists of 12692 digits, which is also a multiple of 19.

7 1234567 286 12345...286 ...5 12345 6 123456 |
---|

FIRST No: This very long number consists of 12692 digits (19x668) and includes every verse in the Quran. The number of verses in each sura precedes its verses. A special computer program that divides very long numbers has shown that this long number is a multiple of 19. |

Instead of putting the total number of verses in every sura ahead of the sura, let us put it at the end of every sura. Thus, the number representing Sura 1 will look like this: 1234567 7, instead of 7 1234567. The number representing Sura 2 will look like this: 12345.....284 285 286 286 instead of 286 12345.....284285286. The numbers representing the first two suras will look like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 7 & 1 2 3 4 5.....284 285 286 286.

Putting these two numbers together to form a longer number represent- ing the first two suras, we get a number we get a number that looks like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 7 1 2 3 4 5.....284 285 286 286.

Since we are putting the total number of verses per sura at the end of each sura, we must put the total number of numbered verses (6234) at the end of the Quran. The last numbers, therefore, represent the last sura (123456 6), followed by the number of verses in the Quran (6234):

1 2 3 4 5 6 6 & 6234 >>>>>> 1 2 3 4 5 6 6 6234.

Putting together all the verses of all the suras, produces a long number that consists of 12696 digits, and is a multiple of 19.

1234567 7 12345...286 286 12345 5...123456 6 6234 |
---|

SECOND No: The number of every verse in every sura is followed by the number of verses per sura. The last 11 digits shown here are the 6 verses of the last sura, followed by its number of verses (6), followed by the total number of numbered verses in the Quran (6234). The complete, very long number, is a multiple of 19. |

##### Now let us include the number of every sura.

Write down the number of every verse in every sura, followed by the number of the sura, followed by the number of verses in the sura. Thus, the number representing Sura 1 looks like this: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 7. The number representing Sura 2 looks like this: 1 2 3 4 5 .....284 285 286 2 286. The number representing the last sura (No. 114) looks like this: 1 2 3 4 5 6 114 6. Again, the total number of numbered verses (6234) is added at the end. This number representing the whole Quran, is a multiple of 19; it looks like this:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1 7 12345 ... 286 2 286 ...123456 114 6 6234 |
---|

THIRD No: The number of every verse, followed by the sura number, then the number of verses in the sura. The total number of numbered verses is added at the end. The long number (12930 digits) is a multiple of 19. |

Instead of putting the total number of verses in every sura after the sura, let us now put it ahead of the sura. Thus, the number representing Sura 1 looks like this: 7 1234567 1, instead of 1234567 1 7, and the number representing Sura 2 looks like this: 286 12345.....284 285 286 2, instead of 12345 ... 284 285 286 2 286. This very long number representing the whole Quran is a multiple of 19.

7 1234567 1 286 12345...286 2...6 123456 114 6234 |
---|

FOURTH No: The total number of verses in each sura is followed by the number of every verse, then the sura number. The last 14 digits shown above are the number of verses in the last sura (6), followed by the numbers of the six verses (123456), followed by the number of the sura (114), then the total number of numbered verses in the Quran. The very long number (consisting of 12930 digits) is a multiple of 19. |

Now, let us write down the number of every verse in every sura, followed by the sum of verse numbers for every sura. Sura 1 consists of 7 verses, and the sum of verse numbers is 1+2+3+4+5+6+7 = 28. Thus, the number representing Sura 1 looks like this: 1234567 28.

The sum of verse numbers for Sura 2 is 41041 (1+2+3+ ... + 286). Thus, the number representing Sura 2 looks like this: 12345...284 285 286 41041.

The number representing the last sura, which consists of 6 verses, looks like this: 123456 21, since 1+2+3+4+5+6 = 21.

The complete number, representing the whole Quran, consists of 12836 digits and is a multiple of 19. It looks like this:

1234567 28 12345...284285286 41041...123456 21 |
---|

FIFTH No: The number of every verse in every sura is followed by the sum of verse numbers. The long number consists of 12836 digits, and is a multiple of 19. |

Remarkably, if we take the "Fifth No." shown above and reverse the order of verse numbers and sum of verse numbers, i.e., move the sum of verse numbers, and put it ahead of the sura, the resulting long number is still a multiple of 19.

28 1234567 41041 12345....285286.....21 123456 |
---|

SIXTH No: Placing the sum of verse numbers ahead of each sura, instead of after it, produces a long number (12836 digits) that is also a multiple of 19. |

Even writing the suras backward, i.e., reversing the order of suras by starting with the last sura and ending with the first sura, and placing the sum of verse numbers after the verses of each sura, the product is still a multiple of 19

SEVENTH No: Reversing the order of suras - starting from the last sura and ending with the first sura - and writing down the number of every verse, with the sum of verse numbers for every sura after its verses, the product is a long number consisting of 12836 digits. This long number is a multiple of 19. |

Write the sum of verse numbers for the whole Quran (333410), followed by the total number of numbered verses in the Quran (6234), then the number of suras (114). Every sura is then represented by its number followed by its number of verses. The numbers representing Suras 1 and 2 are 1 7 and 2 286. The complete number, covering all suras of the Quran, consists of 474 digits, and is a multiple of 19 - it looks like this:

333410 6234 114 1 7 2 286 3 200 .. 113 5 114 6 |
---|

EIGHTH No: The Grand Sum of verse numbers (333410) is followed by the total number of numbered verses (6234), the number of suras (114), then the sura numbers and numbers of verses of every sura. |

Now let us reverse the order of sura number and its number of verses as presented in the "Eighth No." Thus, the numbers representing the first two suras look like this: 7 1 & 286 2, instead of 1 7 & 2 286. The complete number also consists of 474 digits and is still a multiple of 19. It looks like this:

333410 6234 114 7 1 286 2 200 3 ... 5 113 6 114 |
---|

NINTH No: Reversing the sequence of sura number and number of verses still gives us a long number that is a multiple of 19. |

If we write down the sum of verse numbers for Sura 1 (28), followed by the sum of verse numbers for Sura 2 (41041), and so on to the end of the Quran, and placing the Grand Sum of verse numbers (333410) at the end, the resulting long number (Tenth No.) consists of 377 digits, and is a multiple of 19.

28 41041 20100 ..... 15 21 333410 |
---|

TENTH No: The sums of verse numbers for every sura in the Quran, are written next to each other, followed at the end by the Grand Sum of verse numbers (333410). This long number (377 digits) is a multiple of 19. |

If we write down the number of suras in the Quran (114), followed by the total number of numbered verses (6234), followed by the number of every sura and its sum of verse numbers, the final long number (612 digits) is a multiple of 19.

114 6234 1 28 2 41041 3 20100 .... 113 15 114 21 |
---|

ELEVENTH No: The number of suras, followed by the total number of numbered verses, then the number of every sura and its sum of verse numbers, produce this long number (612 digits) that is a multiple of 19. |

Lest anyone may think that any Quranic parameter is left un-guarded with this awesome mathematical code, let us look at more parameters.

If we write down the number of suras (114), followed by the total number of numbered verses, followed by the Grand Sum of verse numbers in the whole Quran (333410), followed by the numbers of every sura and its verses, we end up with a very long number (12712 digits) that is a multiple of 19.

114 6234 333410 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7..............114 1 2 3 4 5 6 |

TWELFTH NUMBER |

If we write down the numbers of verses in every sura next to each other, we end up with a 235-digit number that is a multiple of 19. To do this, write down the total number of numbered verses in the Quran (6234), followed by the number of verses in every sura, then close with the total number of numbered verses in the Quran. The final long number looks like this:

6234 7 286 200 176.....127....5 4 5 6 6234

6234 | 7 286 200 176 | ..... | 127 | ..... | 5 4 5 6 | 6234 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

(total verses) | (First 4 suras) | (Sura 9) | (Last 4 suras) | (total verses) | ||

THIRTEENTH NUMBER |

If we write down the number of numbered verses in the Quran (6234), followed by the number of suras (114), followed by the number of every verse in every sura, then close with the number of numbered verses in the Quran (6234) and the number of suras (114), the final number consists of 12479 digits, and is a multiple of 19.

6234 114 1234567 12345.........286.............123456 6234 114 |
---|

FOURTEENTH NUMBER |

Another long number that consists of 12774 digits is formed by writing down the number of every verse in every sura, followed by the number of every sura added to its number of verses. Sura 1 consists of 7 verses, and the total 1+7 is 8. Therefore, the number representing Sura 1 looks like this: 1234567 8. Since Sura 2 consists of 286 verses, the number representing Sura 2 looks like this: 12345...286 288. This is done for every sura in the Quran. The final combined number consists of 12774 digits, and is a multiple of 19.

1234567 | 8 | 12345....286 | 288 | .......... | 123456 | 120 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

(1+7) | (2+286) | (114+6) | ||||

FIFTEENTH NUMBER |

More specialized features are in Appendices 2, 9, 19, 24, 25, 26, 29, and 37.

##### A Witness From the Children of Israel [46:10]

[46:10] Proclaim: "What if it is from God, and you disbelieved in it? A witness from the Children of Israel has borne witness to a similar phenomenon, and he has believed, while you have turned too arrogant to believe. God does not guide the wicked."

The following quotation is taken from STUDIES IN JEWISH MYSTICIM, (Association for Jewish Studies, Cambridge, Mass., Joseph Dan & Frank Talmage, eds., Page 88, 1982). The quotation refers to the work of Rabbi Judah the Pious (12th Century AD):

"The people [Jews] in France made it a custom to add [in the morning prayer] the words: "`Ashrei temimei derekh [blessed are those who walk the righteous way]," and our Rabbi, the Pious, of blessed memory, wrote that they were completely and utterly wrong. It is all gross falsehood, because there are only nineteen times that the Holy Name is mentioned [in that portion of the morning prayer]... and similarly you find the word `Elohim nineteen times in the pericope of Ve-'elleh shemot.... Similarly, you find that Israel were called "sons" nineteen times, and there are many other examples. All these sets of nineteen are intricately intertwined, and they contain many secrets and esoteric meanings, which are contained in more than eight large volumes... Furthermore, in this section there are 152 (19x8) words."
