|The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 6:57pm On May 18, 2017|
The Quran code has a mathematical structure within the text of the Quran, mostly using the number 19 as a common denominator.
The huge significance given to the number 19 is as a result of a verse in the Quran (Qur'an, 74:30) which Almighty Allah(SWT) specifcally pointed out number 19 as a test to the unbelievers. the verse states:
(Qur'an, 74:30): Over it are nineteen [angels].
(Qur'an, 74:31): And We have not made the keepers of the Fire except angels. And We have not made their number except as a trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt and that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?" Thus does Allah leave astray whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And none knows the soldiers of your Lord except Him. And mention of the Fire is not but a reminder to humanity.
Some of the very numerous significance of the special number 19 are:
1. The foundation of the code is the Quran's first verse, "In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful" (بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم) known as Bismillah ArRahman ArRahim, which consists of 19 Arabic letters.
2. The Qur'an consists of 114 (19 x 6) Suras.
3. The first Sura to be revealed, Surat al-'Alaq, consists of 19 verses and 285 (19 x 15) letters.
4. 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.
5. This ecliptic cycle which occurs once every 19 years has been scientifically used to match the solar and lunar years. i.e: The Sun, Moon and Earth line up in the same relative positions once every 19 years
6. Surat an-Nasr, the final Sura to be revealed, consists of a total of 19 words.
7. The total number of verses in the Quran is 6346, which is also a multiple of 19 ie. 19 x 334.
8. The Arabic word "wahdahu," meaning "worship only Allah," appears in the verses 7:70, 39:45, 40:12, 40:84 and 60:4. When these figures are added up without numbers being repeated, the resulting total is 361 (19 x 19).
9. The word "Rahman" (All-Merciful) appears 57 (19 x 3) times in the Qur'an.
10. There are 38 (19 x 2) Suras without initial letters between the first Sura which has initial letters and the last to have them.
11. (Allah) is repeated 2698 ( = 19 x 142) times in the Quran.
12. Halley's Comet passes through the Solar System once every 76 years (19 x 4).
13. The number of bones in the human hand is 19.
14. The 96th Sura, the first revealed, comes 19 before the end. It consists of 19 verses and contains a total of 285 letters (19 x 15). The first five verses of the revelation contain 76 (19 x 4) letters.
And many more...

Many people are infatuated by the different types of miracles in the Qur’aan, including the “numerical miracles”. In newspapers and magazines and on the internet they publish lists of words that are repeated a number of times that corresponds to their structure, and words that are repeated the same number of times as their opposites. They also claim that the word yawm (day) is repeated 365 times and the word shahr (month) is repeated 12 times, and they do this with other words too, such as al-malaa’ikah (angels) and al-shayaateen (devils), and al-dunya (this world) and al-aakhirah (the Hereafter), etc.
Many people think that these numbers are true and that this is one of the miracles of the Qur’aan, but they do not distinguish between subtleties and miracles. Writing a book which contains a specific number of certain words is something that anyone can do; what is so miraculous about that? The miracle that appears in the Book of Allaah is not like these subtleties, rather it is far deeper and greater than that. It is the fact that the most eloquent and well-spoken of the Arabs could not produce anything like the Qur’aan, or ten soorahs of it, or even one soorah. It is not like these subtleties that any writer could produce in any book that he writes, or more.
It should be noted that some people have taken this beyond mere statistics. Some of them have used these numbers to foretell when the state of Israel will fall, and others have used them to say when the Day of Judgement will be. One of the latest fabrications against the Book of Allaah is that which they have published saying that the Qur’aan foretold the explosions in the towers in New York! Based on the number of the verse in al-Tawbah, and the number of the soorah and juz’. All of that is toying with the Book of Allaah which is caused by ignorance of the true nature of the miracle of the Book of Allaah.
By examining the statistics presented by those who have published these numbers, we find that they did not get the numbers of some phrases right, and some of them have been selective in the way they counted the words, and that is so that they might reach the conclusion they want and that they think is in the Book of Allaah.
Shaykh Dr. Khaalid al-Sabt said:
Dr. Ashraf ‘Abd al-Razzaaq Qatanah presented a “study of the numerical miracles in the Holy Qur’aan” which he published in a book entitled: “The Qur’aan and the Numerical Miracles, a critical study of the numerical miracles of the Holy Qur’aan.” In the conclusion to this book he reviews three other books: (1) I’jaaz al-Raqm 19 (The miracle of the number 19) by Baasim Jaraar; (2) al-I’jaaz al-‘Adadi fi’l-Qur’aan (the numerical miracle in the Qur’aan) by ‘Abd al-Razzaaq Nawfal; and (3) al-Mu’jizah (the miracle) by ‘Adnaan al-Rifaa’i. The author reached a conclusion which he describes as follows:
As the result of my study I reached the idea that the “numerical miracle” as presented in these books is not real at all, and these books are based on conditions that are sometimes selective , in order to prove the validity of this view in a way that will make the reader accept these preconceived results referred to above. These selective conditions sometimes lead the author to go against that which is proven according to the consensus of the ummah, such as going against the spelling of the ‘Uthmaani Mus-haf, which is not permissible at all; or adopting the spelling of some words which appears in some Mus-hafs and without paying attention to the spellings in other Mus-hafs. It also goes against basic principles of the Arabic language with regard to synonyms and antonyms
p. 197, Damascus, Manaar li’l-Nashr wa’l-Tawzee’, first edition, 1420 AH/1999 CE.
Dr. Fahd al-Roomi said something similar about the selective way in which Dr ‘Abd al-Razzaaq Nawfal chose words in order to reach this numerical balance, such as when he said: The word yawm (day) is mentioned 365 times in the Qur’aan, the number of days in a year. In order to prove this he counted the words “al-yawm” and “yawman” but he ignored words such as “yawmukum” (your day) and “yawmuhum” (their day) and yawma’idhin (on that day), because if he had done that, he would have got a different number. The same applies to the word al-isti’aadhah which refers to seeking refuge from the shaytaan. He says that it is repeated 11 times, but he includes in that the words “a’oodhu” (I seek refuge) and “fasta’idh” (seek refuge) but not “ ‘udhtu” (I sought refuge) or “ya’oodhoona” (they seek refuge) or “u’eedhuha” (I seek refuge for her) or “ma’aadh Allaah” (Allaah forbid).

We know that crooners like to downgrade some of the virtues of Quran by coming up with fictitious claims. They strive hard to make Quran look like a mere novel. Sheikh Bilal Philips is one of them. He downgrades virtues of numbers. These people are so funny with their half baked ilm. Yet you see them go to hospitals and doctors use POWER OF NUMBER to calculate state of pregnancy, to calculate timing of disease like cancer stages. And they believe the doctor. But if a muslim does the same he is seen as "fortuneteller". Yet they have no problem with scientist telling them hurricane is heading southwest at xyz date and time. Some doctors even forecast death of patients by calculating NUMBERS and arrive at their conclusion. Imagine what muslims could have achieved by being the leading vagabonds in science and technology if only the crooners understand wisdom embedded in the kitab ?
Truly they(western) are not perfect . Sometimes their calculations fail them. Example was Libya Gaddafi's brother who lived another 3yrs after revelation. Sometimes their calculations are accurate but doesn't necessarily mean they know the day and time. That's why doctors say "you have 6 months to live" base on their calculations. Alas! client dies within time frame. Example of this was wife of disgraced US senator John Edward who died of cancer and also Ted Kennedy. These are sciences of Qur'an that these bid'ah crooners are working hard to trash.
Western world understood these from Quran and stole them from us. And we still have muslims who are one eyed condemning these islamic sciences called "Imo Ijinle" by yoruba folks. What really upsets me the most is that these people believe doctors telling them that patient on life machine won't die unless if the machine is disconnected. They are so much worried about Muslim "forecasting" judgment Day. Knowledge of JD is known to none other than Allah. So if a muslim is forecasting JD, he/she is simply extreme. But to downgrade power of numbers is even worse. Also we need to distinguish JUDGMENT DAY from LAST AGE. The two are different. it is very possible to "forecast" Last Age due to many numerous ahadith but not JD. Many medieval scholars wrote books on numbers and the use of them. It's too late to come up with nonsense in 21st to condemn them.
Sorry if there are typo errors cus my KB is messed up. i dey use On-screen keyboard which took me an hour to type this

^^^^ empiree thanks!
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 6:50am On May 19, 2017|
^^ you are thanking him for saying words that has no weight, he should be asked if all the junk he has said successfully refute the fact that the people who did this "discovery" did so with dishonesty, doing selective counting.........
Two blind people helping each other to cross the road..... What a pity....
The Question people should be asking themselves is, why did the people that claimed to "discover" these numbers do selective counting? Just playing with the minds of the people and its a pity the two fellows up there are so so gullible...
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 7:03am On May 19, 2017|
A very clear example that any one can verify is this;
Surat an-Nasr the final Sura to be revealed, consists of a total of 19 words.
After counting just now, I found out that they didn't count "و" which means "and" as a word, if you count that "و" what you have is more than 19.....
Anyone can verify...

AbdelKabir:I gave a source link for a reason vuhu
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 7:17am On May 19, 2017|
So? I thought what I was saying was a "supplication"
I'm sorry sir, you are gullible which has been proven by that sura....
Muslims should leave all these "panel beaten" kind of discovery just to impress people of other faith and work more on their understanding of the pristine Islam..
The emboldened is a mistake, should've said "kaafirs", verily the only religion with Allaah is Islam....

AbdelKabir:really, you have been making sense until you called two people gullible...
If you can know how gullible someone is via Nairaland, then am afraid, you should pitch a career as an augur..

Mathematical miracle? Why are we copying Christians looking for miracles up and down? Na miracles the Prophet come preach? Abeg post something beneficial for the Muslims. Who mathematical miracle help? Fixing things where they do not exist, this is deceit!

lfleak:you are surprised? . Does he even make sense to begin with

|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 4:42pm On May 19, 2017|
Once again another input without weight.... This thread is talking about 19 and that's what we talking about, so you got nothing say, and I'll suggest you shut it....
Wanted to ask if you are the new mureed of your "shaykh", your " shaykh" in the other thread.....the "humble and knowledgeable
Because this one you are always asking him for what to do, I'm not understanding...
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Empiree: 4:54pm On May 19, 2017|
You paranoid ?
If this thread was even talking about numbers generally would have had different opinion?
Actually one of your posts up there shows there is nothing special in numbers.
So my post was in~line with this thread.
Your hate for the sheikh is really blocking your sense of reason
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 4:57pm On May 19, 2017|
Post was clear, number 19 specifically and some other dishonest countings.....
Hate for what shaykh?
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 6:07pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:Arabs who owned the language verified them, while you who learnt it with cane and blackboard(sarc) go against it... making sense..
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 6:27pm On May 19, 2017|
Which Arabs verified what? You are not only gullible but you are suffering from inferiority complex....... So you believe Arabs should understand Islam better than someone from other places? So Arabs need to verify if suratul nasr has 19 words or not ba?
You clearly have nothing to say....
Sorry I had to destroy your thread, you must've opened it to receive applause,... Pele
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 7:12pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:lol. the bolded.. you are just too forward...i never said the arab should understand islam better, i only said they understand the core ARABIC LANGUAGE BETTER!.. since you have mandated to call anyone who doesnt fit into your lone idea gullible, i drop u in the ignore list.. enjoy...
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 7:31pm On May 19, 2017|
Again, this is an error , they shouldn't necessarily understand core Arabic language better....... A Nigerian who studied the principles of Arabic language will understand it better than an Arab who learnt by hearing........
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 7:57pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:yea sure, but did you..?? because you are the one am referring to...you counted 'wa' which means 'and' and was explained why it was not counted in one of the links i gave... the quran mentioned some other numbers but didnt specifically mentioned any other than 19 and very straight forward...
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 8:24pm On May 19, 2017|
Yea I did......
Kalimah(a word) in the Arabic language is divided into three, "ism" "fi'il" and "harfu ma'na"
"Nouns(although does not correspond to the English noun, but this is the closest ism can be translated to)" "verbs" and "meaningful letters(that don't have meanings on their own)"...
"و" is a meaningful letter in Arabic that means "and".......
Perhaps you can give us the explanation I missed out cuz all they said is "The "و" is a letter, not a word" is that an explanation?
They are only gonna deceive people like you....
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 8:41pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:deceive that 19 isn't a special number?
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 8:44pm On May 19, 2017|
That "و" is not a word and things were panel beaten to make 19 a "special" number.....
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 8:46pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:in essense , 19 is not a special number by you..
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 9:00pm On May 19, 2017|
Not only me, but authentic scholars of Islam as you can see from my first post I copied from shaykh saalih munajjid site
Plus I've personally proved one of their lies using suratun nasr.....savvy?
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 9:09pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:that is, you and your sheiks are refuting 74:30 and 74:31 ..Good! noted!
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 9:22pm On May 19, 2017|
And where was it mentioned in suratul muddathir that "19 is q special number"?
Number two, how come the prophet who was the one whose explanation of the Qur'an was given to never said 19 is a special number?
Number 3 how bout his companions?
Those that followed(studied with) the companions?
So how come somebody comes out today and say he has found a discovery...
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 9:29pm On May 19, 2017|
وَمَا جَعَلْنَا عِدَّتَهُمْ إِلَّا فِتْنَةً لِّلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا tell me that line has nothing special...or you just want to be blinded by your sheik... also do you remember no other number is layed emphasis upon to that extent in the Quran... tell me something intelligent!
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 9:54pm On May 19, 2017|
You see what you wish to see, Qur'an didn't ksy emphasis on speciality of number 19, you are only being deluded...
This is what happens when you resort to interpreting the Qur'an with your logic instead of how was interpreted by the people who this message was revealed to, Muhammad sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions....
You don't just pick aayah in the Quran and interpret, it has a context, now....
Before that aayah was revealed the Idolators of Quraysh claimed to know the numbers of angels guarding the heavens, then Allaah refuted them by telling them that the actual number is 19, Allaah went on to say that he has not mentioned their number except as a trial for the disbelievers and the people of the book can use it to confirm what is in their book, which is one the reasons why the Qur'an was revealed, He azza wa jal also mentioned that it will increase the believers in faith and this is because HIS words conform with what is in past scriptures...... Now what we have to note is WHY WAS THIS MENTIONED PRIMARILY? it has been answered, to refute the people of Quraysh and the things that follows...
You should look for ibn katheer, don't interpret the Qur'an with your brain abeg.....our brain is too limited to understand the words of Allaah without explanations, this is why the prophet wysd raised, to explain the Qur'an for us...... Even the sahabas who understood Arabic perfectly still asked for explanations, statements like "what does dhulm means here?" "What does kufr means here" and so on...
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by lfleak: 10:05pm On May 19, 2017|
AbdelKabir:the bolded! this is the third time... good night!
|Re: The Importances Of Number "19" In Islam by Nobody: 10:22pm On May 19, 2017|
Nothing to say!! aren't you being deluded truly to believe 19 is a special number?
