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 9th letter 16th letter
3rd letter 10th letter 17th letter
4th letter 11th letter 18th letter
5th letter 12th letter 19th letter
6th letter 13th letter    
7th letter 14th 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.

Furthermore, the first verse of Surat an-Nasr, which speaks of the help of Allah, contains 19 letters.

1st letter 8th letter 15th letter
2nd letter 9th letter 16th letter
3rd letter 10th letter 17th letter
4th letter 11th letter 18th letter
5th letter 12th letter 19th letter
6th letter 13th letter
7th letter 14th letter

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).

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).

The number of verses between the first initial letters (Alif, Lam, Mim; Surat al-Baqara 1) and the final initial letters (Nun; Surat al-Qalam 1) is 5,263 (19 x 277).

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.

1 7 19 70 1.000
2 8 20 80 2.000
3 9 30 99 3.000
4 10 40 100 5.000
5 11 50 200 50.000
6 12 60 300 100.000

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 57 (19×3) Letter Qaf
42nd Sura 57 (19×3) Letter Qaf
50th Sura 45th verse 50+45=95 (19×5)
42nd Sura 53rd verse 42+53=95 (19×5)

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:

SURA NUMBER NUMBER OF VERSES
19×1 19th Sura 99
19×2 38th Sura 89
19×3 57th Sura 30
19×4 76th Sura 32
19×5 95th Sura 9
19×6 114th Sura 7
TOTAL =266 (19×4)

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. In order: 9,899 (19 x 521), 5,662 (19 x 298), 1,672 (19 x 88), 1,254 (19 x 66) and 817 (19 x 43). 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), “abid” (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-Wahid (The One) 19 (19 x 1)

 Aj-Jami (The Gatherer) 114 (19 x 6)


19: AN EXTRAORDINARY NUMBER

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.

The place of the number 19 in the Pascal triangle

The total of the first 19 figures in the Pascal triangle is 38 (19 x 2).

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 (19 x 15). 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)

USE OF CARCINOGENIC THERMOCOL PLATES – A GREAT MENACE FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT

Standard

USE OF CARCINOGENIC THERMOCOL PLATES – A GREAT MENACE FOR  OUR     ENVIRONMENT

Despite the blanket ban imposed in August this year by Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) against the use of Polystyrene (thermocol)-{Formula: (C8H8)n} products (like plates etc.) used in serving food items in hotels, restaurants and marriage functions, because of their carcinogenic (cancer-causing) and non-biodegradable nature; their widespread use has gone unchecked. Even the Regional Director of Pollution Control Board too has reportedly been informed by SMC and the Cancer Society of Kashmir about the alarming situation caused by the use of such toxic materials. However all such actions have proved to be ineffective and the sporadic use of these harmful products continues unabated. In this connection one activist Mr. Sathya Prabhu has put in his all efforts to meet SMC officials, other bureaucrats and ministers, who have assured him to impose effective ban on the use of such hazardous materials.

“ The fact that styrene can adversely affect humans in a number of ways raises serious public health and safety questions regarding its build-up in human tissue and the root cause  of this build-up. According to ‘The Foundation for Achievements in Science and Education fact sheet’, long term exposure to small quantities of styrene can cause neurotoxin fatigue, nervousness, difficulty in sleeping, hematological (low platelet and hemoglobin values, cytogenetic (chromosomal and lymphatic abnormalities) and carcinogenic effects,” writes Dr Pragya Khanna, a Cytogenetic specialist and professor from Jammu. Besides the studies suggest that styrene mimics estrogen in females and can therefore disrupt normal hormone functions, possibly contributing to thyroid problems, menstrual irregularities, and other hormone-related problems, as well as breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Besides being a potent health hazard, these disposable products are also non-biodegradable and pose a huge environmental challenge as they pile on without decomposing making the earth infertile. The microorganisms meant for composting do not consume these substances; instead these very materials become a cause for the death of these micro-organisms. Mostly these materials find their way in to fresh water/ drainage channels creating obstruction in their free flow / choking, thus leading to flooding and polluting the surrounding areas. In addition to this the huge piles of these materials are being burnt at high temperatures of the melting point of 240 degrees, for warming / heating / cooking, on glacier tops causing their melting, besides global warming. On burning, these materials emanate toxic fumes with obnoxious smell besides exuding flying ash which gets inhaled by people causing respiratory problems like bronchial asthma and other respiratory diseases and other adverse consequences on health of children and pregnant females / her fetus, and may even be a cause of cancer.

An alternative to this product has been reportedly developed by processing freely available tree-leaves, which is biodegradable and eco-friendly. The product is known as IUPAC, ID: (I-phenylethene -1, 2-diyl). In Kashmir we have plenty of Chinar leaves, which could be processed to develop such a new product.

To combat this burning issue more and more people like Sathya Prabhu need to rise to the occasion for betterment of the environment and thus be beneficent to the society.

Predictions of Shah Nimatullah Farsi (RA)

Standard

I just came to know about this sufi saint who lived in the Indian subcontinent (Kashmir Valley) around 900 years ago. He has made a lot of predictions about the indian subcontinent and the world in general leading up to the final armageddon in the form of Persian verses and, surprisingly, those predictions are coming true with the passage of time. The most surprising thing is that he has actually mentioned the names of personalities and places several times. I would list some of his predictions over here that I found online. Keep in mind that it does not reflect my personal beliefs or religion.

Quote:

The first prediction is about Nadir Shah’s attack of Delhi. He said: Nadir Shah would emerge from Iran and would snatch the Indian empire. He would callously use his sword to assassinate the people of Delhi.About the Mughals he said: You (who are reading my prophecies) will not find Mughals anywhere after 300 years.

About the arrival of East India Company in the Subcontinent, he said:Rajas and Maharajas would turn careless. For most of the time they would remain drunk and addicted to opium. At that time the British/Christians would land in India disguised as traders and businessmen. About the British rule in India he predicted:My dears! Understand it very clearly that they would rule India for 100 years at least.(Please note that the Britishers stay in India was for 200 years, however, they ruled only for 100 years. When Lord Curzon, the then Viceroy of India came to know about Hazrat Shah Naimat’s prophecies, he put a ban on their publishing and making them public).

He predicts a war between Russian and Japan. Japan will prevail.

Two persons, both named “Ahmed” will do corrupted tasfeer of Quran, and deviate peole. [could be referring to Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadyani and Pervez Ahmed]

While talking about the First World War, Shah Naimat predicts:For four years a great war would be fought in the West in which E(England) would score an unfair victory over G(Germany).I would like to clarify that Shah Naimat used the Persian alphabets Alif for Inglistan (England) and Jeem for Germany. The interesting point to note is that this war was fought in the West (Europe) for four years (1914-1918).

While predicting more about First World War, he even gave the death figures. Shah Naimat said:It would be a great world war. There would be a great bloodshed and about 13.1 million people would be killed.

Earthquake in Japan, 1/4 of Japan destroyed. [Happened in 1923]

He prophesised about the Second World War also and said:The Second World War would start 21 years after the First World War and it would be more violent, lethal, destructive and ruinous then the first one. People who are interested in military history knows it very well that the Second World War (1939-1945) started exactly 21 years after the First World War.

While mentioning the weapons he said:The scientists of that era would make very deadly and fatal weapons which could measure energy and power and would bring mass destruction to the fighting forces (atomic bomb).

Prediciton of T.V and Telephones.

Then Wali says that British will leave the subcontinent and there will be a lot of bloodshed.

Wali said,It would be evident to the whole world that India would be clearly divided into two parts.Sikhs will slaughter the Muslims. [happened during the partition]. Due to hypocrisy and cheating there would be a lot of tragedies, massacres and carnage, Shah Sahib while referring to undemocratic governments in this region said,India would be ruled by rulers who would not be legitimate to do so. They would change the official rules and set of laws just like that. Law and order would scarcely prevail.

The followers of Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him) would indulge in disgraceful criminal acts and immoral and indecent conduct.His views about religious leaders are not very encouraging. He saidThe muftis of that era would behave irresponsibly. They would issue fatwas (religious decrees) without any reason. (doesn’t it sound like Fatwas of Mulana Sufi Mohammed in Swat) but when it would come to speak the truth about the religion, they would start making despicable and lame excuses. He further said,The Islamic teachings would be like a blown out candle. No one would care about them. Scholars would be forcefully relegated to the lowest pedestals and the uneducated and amateurish would turn up as intellectuals and scholars.

His following few predictions about wars in the region are quite obvious. Naimat Shah said,Suddenly, the Muslims would face a quite jolting restlessness. They would fight a daring war with kafirs (non-Muslims) of the region. After a 17-day war the Almighty would bless the Muslims with a victory. They would earn this triumph after fighting a bloody war, daringly laying down their lives and rendering a lot of sacrifices. A Hindu leader would represent his country in another atheist country, where he would die while in his sleep.

(This refers to 1965 War. Lal Bahadur Shastri died of a heart attack in Tashkent, an atheist city of athiest Soviet Union.)

The people of the Muslim part of the Subcontinent would dethrone their ameer (President) and from then onwards they would earn a great humiliation. ( Khwaja Nazimuddin’s removal). After that there would be a great rage, calamity and chastisement. The punisher (Allah) would sentence those who would deserve it. Allah would issue a mass killing command. The eastern part of the country would tragically fall due to the deceitfulness of pretenders. The people of the western part would mourn over it. A big city of the eastern part would become a place of butchery and bloodshed. A mass killing would take place there and people would be slaughtered freely without any fear. A Muslim leader, in fact, would be an abettor of the kafirs and would lend them full support through his treachery. (The accursed Mujiburahman who chose his place in Hell among the Kuffars).

The person whose name would start with Gaaf (Persian alphabet having G as an alternative in English) and would contain six letters (maybe Gandhi) would remain victorious in this war due to his impiety and wickedness (Indira Gandhi).

Shah Sahib said:The Muslims of the western portion (West Pakistan) would have the blessings of Allah. The most responsible leaders, skilled scientists and highly professional and dedicated military experts would be available to them. All the Muslim countries would be looking towards them. Muslims from Turkey, Arabia, Iran and the Middle East would turn up with remarkable Ummah spirit to support them and the area of Chitral, Nanga Parbat, Gilgit, China and Tibet would become the main battlefield.

Hazrat Naimat Shah further said:The people of Kabul would also come out to kill kafirs (non-Muslims) who would run around from pillar to post and would make petty and paltry excuses to save their lives. They would literally beg the Muslims for their lives. The frontier would quiver and quake with the foot-beats of ghazis and mujahids of the frontier who would suddenly emerge out of nowhere. This event would take place after Eid-ul-Azha and the next Eid ul Fitr.

Wali said:�River Attock (Kabul) would be filled thrice, with the blood of kafirs, during that period. The Muslims would capture the whole Punjab (including Lahore city), Kashmir, the land situated between River Ganges and Yamuna (Uttar Pradesh province) and the city of Bijnaur. This war would remain among the human beings for good about six months and ultimately, God willing, the Muslims would be victorious. All the enemies and the ill-wishers of Islam would be killed and the whole India would be clean of Hinduism and Hindu traditions. Shah Naimat said:Suddenly there would be a great roar. It would be a catastrophic earthquake like the doomsday. It would cause great devastation and disruption in Sindh and Hind (India).

While predicting another bloody war he said:One of the two alifs (America and England (Inglistan) I have mentioned earlier, would be totally destroyed. Russia would attack the western alif (maybe England). Russia would also kneel down to China’s wrath, rage and fury and would be destroyed. However, to live in the world would beg China for immunity. Later on, one of the jeems (either Germany or Japan) would make an alliance with Russia against either of the alifs (America or England). Most lethal and explosive weapons would be used to an extent that the alif (America or England) would be totally wiped out from the world map and its name would remain merely in the history books. This would be a punishment for them from the Almighty and the generations would remember them as the iniquitous.

Islam would dominate India for at least forty years until Dajjal would emerge from the city of Esfahan. There would be a lot of sedition, disturbance, violence and war in the region. Khorasan, Egypt, Syria and Iraq would not be an exception. The war would devastate and desolate these countries as well until the Best Year as described by the Holy Quran would come. Imam Mehdi would attain prominence. He would appear during the Hajj days and suddenly he would become famous the world over. In my opinion, Imam Mehdi would appear before Dajjal’s appearance.

The Wali further predictsajjal’s forces would be in Esfahan and his army would be consisted of Jews and Christians and I am clearly seeing it. I can also see a dust storm rising up from Kufa. Jesus Christ would also descend from the heavens. I can see thousands of riders accompanying the Christ and finally Jesus, the son of Mary, would kill Dajjal with his own sword. Look Naimat Shah! Stop and do not disclose the secrets of Allah. I am predicting these events in the Islamic year 548 Hijri.Allah knows best.
