Digital Sum of Quranic Initials

Awesome Mathematical Groups

Letter from the Editor:

For many years I have been emphasizing that we have the correct Quran perfectly preserved by God [1].  In this issue the believers should rejoice for further proof that not only counts but also the assignment of every digit in the Quran is divinely controlled.  The mathematical miracle that the readers are about to witness is revolving around the digital sum in all the ALM, ALR, and S initialed suras.

I tabulate the counts of As, Ls, Ms, and As, Ls, Rs in the following Tables [2]

 Table I.  Frequency of Occurrence of Letters A, L, M in all A.L.M.  Initialled Suras Sura # Frequency of Occurrence A L M 2 4502 3202 2195 3 2521 1892 1249 29 774 554 344 30 544 393 317 31 347 297 173 32 257 155 158

 Table II.  Frequency of Occurrence of Letters A, L, R in all A.L.R.  Initialled Suras Sura # Frequency of Occurrence A L R 10 1319 913 257 11 1370 794 325 12 1306 812 257 14 585 452 160 15 493 323 96

We already know that the sum total of all these numbers is divisible by 19, however, if we add the individual digits, we obtain very awesome results.  I tabulate these results in the following table.

 Table III.  Digital Sum of Frequency of Occurrence of Letters A, L, M and A, L, R in  A.L.M.  Initialled and A.L.R.  Initialed Suras Sura # Frequency of Occurrence A L M Total 2 4+5+0+2 3+2+0+2 2+1+9+5 = 35 3 2+5+2+1 1+8+9+2 1+2+4+9 = 46 29 7+7+4 5+5+4 3+4+4 = 43 30 5+4+4 3+9+3 3+1+7 = 39 31 3+4+7 2+9+7 1+7+3 = 43 32 2+5+7 1+5+5 1+5+8 = 39 Total 245 A L R 10 1+3+1+9 9+1+3 2+5+7 = 41 11 1+3+7+0 7+9+4 3+2+5 = 41 12 1+3+0+6 8+1+2 2+5+7 = 35 14 5+8+5 4+5+2 1+6+0 = 36 15 4+9+3 3+2+3 9+6 = 39 Total 437

437 is a multiple of 19 and it is 23 x 19.  Moreover, 437 is a composite and it happens to be the 352nd composite and 352 is the gematrical value of the word Quran.  We also know that 23 is 19 written in base 8 and it also happens to be the gematrical value of the word alone.  Furthermore, 2319 is a composite and it is the 1974th composite and 1974 is the year of discovery of the Qurans 19-based mathematical code.  Note also that the 74th revelation was sura 23.  Let us praise God.

There are 3 suras that have S in their initials.  These are suras 7, 19, and 38.  The frequency of this letter in these chapters are 97, 29, and 26 respectively.  Sura 7s initials are A.L.M.S., which indicates a relation between A.L.M. and S. initialed suras.  The digital sum of S initials is:

9+7+2+6+2+9 = 35

If we add this to the ditital sum of the A.L.M. initials we have:

35 + 245 = 280

If we multiply 280 by 19 we get 5320.  This is the total number of A.L.M.S. in Sura 7.

End of the World

We know from the Quran that God has designed everything exactly.  The mathematics of the Quran is well beyond our meager understanding of the science of mathematics.  God informs us that the end of the world is 1709 years after Hijrah.  This number is the sum of the gematrical value of all of the initials in the Quran.  We also know that the year in which the world ends is 2280 A.D.  Milan and Katerina Kullman were discussing the topic of the seven pairs in association with the year that Muhammad was born.  We know that Prophet Muhammad was born in 571 A.D.  Katerina suggested what would happen if we add 1709 and 571?  We got 2280 which is the year that the world ends in the Christian calendar.  God has truly counted the number of all things!

By The Even and The Odd

Recapping what we already know about the even and the odd in the Quran.  If we look at the number of verses in each chapter, it is either an even number or and odd number.  It happens that 54 suras possess and odd number of verses and 60 suras possess an even number of verses.  If we look at the prime numbers associated with the indices 54 and 60, they are 251 and 281 which add up to 532 = 19x28.  There are 112 unnumbered verses in the Quran.  These are Basmilahs which are in the beginning of every sura except sura 9.  The Basmalah in chapter 1 is numbered.  If we include these verses, in our verse count for each sura, we get 52 even and 62 odd numbers.  The prime numbers corresponding to these indices are 239 and 293, respectively.  They add up to 532 again.  Furthermore, the digital sum of these two pairs of prime numbers add up to 19 and 29 also [3].  We also reported that the twin prime companions corresponding to these pairs of prime numbers are (13398, 15732) and (12162, 165650).  We noted that the digital sum of these pairs of numbers add up to 42 and 30 which are the 19th and the 28th composites.  God is omniscient.  We think that this is finished, but God possesses infinite grace.  The last word God mentioned in chapter 28 is 1972 which is 19 x 98.  98 is the number of verses in sura 19!  Sura 28 has 88 verses.  2888 is a multiple of 19 and it is 19 x 152.  Furthermore, 152 = 19x8 and sura 19 has 8 words God (note that the 8th prime number is 19). Let us praise God.

Last week Saied Andalib noted by Gods grace that the sum of numbered verses from the beginning of sura 19 to the end of sura 28 is 1090.  There are 10 chapters from 19 to 29 and 1090 is 10x109.  Sura 10 has 109 verses!  After he left I noted that 1090 is the 908th composite and 1090 + 908 = 1998.  This is mine boggling, because sura 19 has 98 verses.  God is truly omnipotent.  Saied also told me that the first word GOD in sura 19 is in verse 30 (30 is the 19th such verse, it is verse number 98 of sura 21.  Is it not amazing?  Note that chapter 98 is called the proof.  Saied then counted up to the 45th such verse and it is verse number 39 of sura 22.  We know that 39 is the 19th un-initialed sura and the 45th un-initialed sura is 74.  You also find the litmus test that God gives us to recognize those who do not believe in the hereafter, in 39:45.  These are the people for whom mentioning GOD ALONE shrinks their hearts with aversion, but when others are mentioned besides Him, they are happy.

Saied counted the number of verses from 74:1 (The Hidden Secret) to the end of the Quran.  He found that there are 741 verses.  741 = 19 x 39 and 39 is the 19th un-initialed sura.  Saied counted the number of verses from sura 109 to the end of the Quran there are 29 of them.  Note that 29 is the index of prime number 109 and it is the number of initialed suras in the Quran.

Are We Missing the Boat Again?

Every month in the Journal of Submission, the readers have been witnessing the miracle of the Quran through a mathematics which I referred to as the ULTIMATE MATHEMATICS.  This number system of the Quran is so sophisticated and yet unknown to us at the present time, but simple enough to be understood even by a child in fourth or fifth grade.  This is a blessing for the people who have recognized this miracle of God to bring them even closer to their Creator.  It is also a warning to people who are continuously opposing new miracles from God by ignoring them and branding them as too hard to understand!  Remember that apathy is condemned by God [4].  For example, in the above article the relation between sura 109 and the number of verses to the end of the Quran, which is 29, is the 29th prime is 109.  29 also happens to be the number of initialed suras.  Is this too difficult to understand?  It is ironic that a lot of people who are apathetic towards this miracle of the Quran, are college graduates!  Once, I had a discussion with a man who had a Ph.D. in engineering and claimed to be a devout Moslem, about the mathematical miracle of the Quran.  He finally told me that I am exaggerating the miracles of the Quran a little?!  A mathematician kept shrugging his shoulders and said so what!   One truly witnesses the indifference in their faces when God proves His book mathematically.  The miracle of ULTIMATE MATHEMATICS is telling us that not only the arrangement of the literal text of the Quran is impossible when attempted to be written mathematically, but that we do not understand the mathematics either..  The excuse usually given by this group is that this is too esoteric and the general public would not be able to understand this and therefore would not be interested in this subject.  As though God has appointed these people as advocates for the general public!  We are warned by God and will be responsible to Him on the day of judgment, if we reject Gods revelations before acquiring knowledge about them [5].

The miracles of the Quran are only recognized by the sincere, regardless of the level of their education.  A lot of people who truly believed that Quran is from God, had no problem believing Dr. Khalifa, when he was inspired by God to count the number of initials in Arabic exactly, although the majority of these people did not speak or read Arabic and had no way to verify it.  Today, God, the Defender of the believers [6], has provided the ULTIMATE MATHEMATICS to prove that all the counts are indeed correct (see the first article in this issue).  Is it too hard for them to write down the first 29 prime numbers?  Note that chapter 109 is called The Disbelievers.

God keeps increasing the number of our subscribers.  Now, I have 76 on my mailing list, a gift from God.  Brother Ben Jaafar was telling me that he copies it and sends it to over fifty on his mailing list, including some mathematics departments.  In Europe, brothers Milan and Eric send it to others on their mailing lists.  This Journal was not meant to be fancy.  My request to our subscribers is to disseminate it amongst people you know, and God will reward you from His infinite bounty, InshaAllah.
