“A SCRIPTURE WHOSE VERSES HAVE BEEN PRECISELY DESIGNED, IN AN Arabic Quran, for people who know” [41:3]  Dr. Ali R. Fazely

God’s mathematical miracle of the Quran is destined to overwhelm the whole world and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Quran is the unaltered word of the Almighty, God.  The miracle that I am about to explain here is based on the number of Sura’s in the Quran and why God designed the last initialed Sura to be number 68.  Let us explore this and glorify God as we proceed.

In the following table there are 114 numbers, sequentially numbered from 1 to 114.  For every one of these numbers, which are the Sura numbers in the Quran, we write the corresponding prime number in the right column.  Because of space considerations, it is not possible to print the entire list.  The complete list is available to anyone who is interested through Masjid Tucson.  Mathematically, the numbers in the left column are known as the indices of primes.

 INDEX PRIME 1 2 2 FIRST INITIALED SURA 3 ·· ·· 8 IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 19 9 23 ·· ·· 19 IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 67 20 71 ·· ·· 68 LAST INITIALED SURA 337 69 347 ·· ·· 114 IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER 619

Mr. Saeed Andalib was first blessed to notice that 619 is the 114th prime number and we also know that 6 x 19 = 114.  Glory be to God.

Let us now count all the primes in the left column.  There are 19 prime numbered Sura’s before the last initialed Sura’s and 11 outside the initialed Sura’s.  In the right column every numbers is a prime.  Therefore, there are 68 prime numbers up to and including the last initialed Suras and 46 outside the initialed Sura’s.  However, there is a subset of primes known as “TWIN PRIMES” that are even more interesting and complicated mathematically that primes which can also be found in these columns.  Note that twin primes are a couple of prime numbers which differ from one another by two.

Guess what!  In the left column there are 7 sets of twin primes between the first and the last initialed Suras.  My wife, Mondra, immediately said the “seven pairs”.  Recall that God says in 15:87, “WE HAVE GIVEN YOU THE SEVEN PAIRS AND THE GREAT QURAN.”  Furthermore, if I multiply 7 by 19 which is the number of primes in the region of initialed Suras, I get 133.  This is exactly the number of the initial NuN in the last initialed Sura!  Outside the initialed Suras in the left column, there are 11 and 3 primes and twin primes, respectively.  In the right column there are 20 sets of twin primes before the last initialed Suras and 8 sets outside the initialed Suras.  This list can be provided upon request.  Now let us focus on the number of primes and twin primes in the initialed domain.  We have:

19 + 7 + 68 + 20 = 114!

And what about outside the initialed domain?  We have:

11 + 3 + 46 + 8 = 68!

Glory be to God.

In the two preceding equations, I started with 8 numbers, 4 for the left column and 4 for the right column.  I tabulate these numbers in the following table:

 Left Right 19 68 7 20 11 46 3 8

We immediately note that the numbers in the left column all belong to the twin primes family and the right side are all “even” and therefore, not prime.  Now let us substitute the indices of these primes in the left column.

 Left Right 8 68 4 20 5 46 2 8 19 142

And, praise God,

19 x 142 = 2698

This is exactly the number of times that the word God is mentioned in the Quran.  Indeed, God is Omnipotent.

All praises are due to God, Creator of all things.
