Guidance is from God Alone

God teaches us throughout the Quran that He is the "One" who guides [1]. This is why we are unable to guide our loved ones [2]. Remember the story of Lotís wife and Noahís son or Abrahamís father? In the case of Abrahamís father, Abraham went as far as making a mistake in praying for forgiveness on his fatherís behalf [3]. The Arabic word for guidance is ĎHUDAN" and it is one of the important keywords mentioned by God in the Quran right after the first sura, "The Key". If you look at the second sura in the Quran, you find that it is the longest sura in the Quran and it is full of laws and commandments for the betterment of mankind, here now and forever. It is called "The Heifer", which is a symbol of submission to God. It is the first initialed sura in the Quran and its second verse informs us that this scripture is infallible and it is a beacon (HUDA) for the righteous. The word HUDAN in Arabic has three letters, H, Dahl and Ya. The gematrical or sequential values of these letters are 5, 4 and 10 and if you add them up you get 19. This is a mathematical confirmation that only God and God alone guides. It is noteworthy that since Arabic is written from right to left, if we write this word and concatenate the values of the letters we get 1045, which is equal to 19x55. You note that sure 55 is called the Most Gracious, and its second verse informs us that He is the Teacher of the Quran.

Number 100

Number 100 has a very special place in the Quran. For example, it tells us that 19, the Quranís mathematical group generator, had to be mentioned in 74:30. If you look at all the numbers in the Quran you note that number 100 is the 30th number (Table I). We know that 30 is the 19th composite. Number 100 is also the 74th composite and therefore we are back to 74:30 which tells us "OVER IT IS 19".

Table I. Numbers mentioned in the Quran














Assume you have a pair of two-digit numbers, ab and cd such that a, b, c and d are nonzero. If ab + cd = 100, then a + b + c + d = 19


We can Write two-digit numbers in polynomial form ax + b and cx + d. In a decimal number where system x = 10. If ax + b + cx + d = 100, then we must have b + d = 10. This implies that ax + cx = 90. When we add the digits together, we actually ignore the base 10 and assume a unit base. This means that 90 will change to 9 and therefore, 10 + 9 = 19.

It is noteworthy that there are 72 such two-digit pairs and 72 is the 8th Twin Primeís Companion (TPC) and 8 is the index of 19. Chapter 72 has 28 verses and 72:28 is one of the numbers conforming to the above theorem, meaning that 72 + 28 = 100 and 7 + 2 + 2 + 8 =19. Please read 72:28.

In light of the above theorem, it is essential to analyze chapter 100 in the Quran. We note that it has 11 verses. If we concatenate 100 and 11 we get 10011 which is composed of 0ís and 1ís only. Therefore, we can think of it as a binary number. Well, you guessed it, 10011 in binary number system is 19, God be praised. Note here the intricate mathematics, 11 is the 19th number in the Quran, and we just saw the relation between 100 and 19. There is only one other chapter in the Quran such that when you concatenate the sura number and the number of verses you get a number which is composed of 1ís and 0ís and it is chapter 101 which also has 11 verses. The number 10111 in binary number system is 23. We know that the 23rd number in the Quran is 30 and the 30the number in the Quran is 100 and 30 is the 19th composite and many more relations between 23 and 30 which were discussed previously [4].


The counts of single letter in the Quranic initials are very interesting from the point of view of primes and signifies important Quranic numbers. If we look at the counts of letters in the Quranic initials, we note that there are 14 prime numbers [5] (excluding repetitions). This corresponds to the 14 sets of Quranic initials. These numbers are 19, 29, 31, 53, 97, 137, 173, 251, 257, 317, 347, 1249, 1319, 2521. Note that the smallest number is 19 and the largest number is 2521. Remember that chapter has 19x521 Aís + Lís + Mís. One notes that three digits namely 0, 6 and 8 are excluded from the above list of numbers. Now if we add the above prime numbers, the sum is 6800, exclusively made up of the missing digits. Keep in mind that 68x100 tells us that the last initialed sura is 68 and 100 proclaims 74:30 which tells us about 19.


The fact that sura 2, the first initialed sura in the Quran has 9899 Aís + Lís + Mís or 19x521, is truly a numbering system beyond the capability of humans and jinns combined [8]. What we are about to see is that the coefficient of 19 which is 521 actually predicts the last initialed sura which is 68. By Godís grace and the discovery of TPCís, we note that the 521st TPC is 33768. This is truly an amazing number, because it is the concatenation of the prime number 337 and 68 where 68 is the index of prime number 337. Glory be to God.


There will be a general seminar on October 15, 1993 at the University of British Columbia in the Student Union Auditorium at 2:00 p.m. in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, God willing. The topic os the talk is the mathematical miracle of the Quran and the speaker is Ali R. Fazely. After the talk a panel discussion session will be held, Inshallah. A copy of the abstract for the talk is included in the last page of this issue.
