Quran, a Fully Detailed Book

This is a statement of "Truth" made by the "Author" of the Quran, God [1]. Our creator has sent us a book with all the knowledge and information we require to lead a successful existence here, now and forever. In studying the Quran, submitters do not rush trying to explain it. People whose hearts are prepared by God for righteousness will be shown the correct understanding at the proper time [2]. People who do not believe in Godís assertion that He has explained everything in the Quran [3] follow other sources for information. They resort to history for historical facts, and to scientific books to obtain knowledge. When students go to school and study different subjects, they never ask if the subject taught by the teacher is correct or the author of the book they study has explained the subject matter properly. If one does not understand "tensor algebra" or "group theory", he or she usually blames him/herself for not being able to understand, the book is always right. This situation is usually reversed for the Quran which is always blamed for not being detailed in spite of Godís assertion to the contrary. God, on the other hand tells us that He is the one who gives knowledge and wisdom. Obviously Soloman did not go to Harvard Law School [4] and neither did Zul Qarnain go to MIT [5]. Both these men were given the correct understanding by God, for they knew that the correct understanding comes from God to His obedient and appreciative servants. These men as well as other examples we witness in the Quran always thanked God for His blessings instead of referring to "nature" as some do.

The case of Zul Qarnain is interesting because God in simple language tells us how to manufacturer "steel". If you study the Quran, chapter 18, God narrates the history of Zul Qarnain and his journey to a place between the two palisades. He meets people who he can hardly understand. These people complain to him about Gog and Magog and how corrupt they are. They ask him if he can make a barrier between them and Gog and Magog. In verse 95 he says that "my Lord has given me many bountiesÖ", therefore he immediately refers to the source of the "giving", God. Invaluable information on how to make an alloy with iron and carbon follows in verse 18:96 and has been at peoples disposal for almost 1,400 years. Today, we know from the science of metallurgy how to produce steel.

Correct Historical Information,

Becca and Mecca

If you read the Quran from cover to cover, you only find two references to the Secret Masjid by name and it is spelled two ways, first, in chapter 3:96 spelled Becca and then in 48:24 spelled as Mecca. We know that sura 3 starts with the initials A.L.M. where God is hinting to us about the 19 based mathematics of the Quran. If in verse 3:96, Becca was spelled as the usual and familiar Mecca the counts of M would be one more and the code would break. However, this is only part of the story. First, God is telling us that Becca and Mecca are the same. If we add the sura numbers and the verse numbers in these two above numbers we get:

3 + 96 + 48 + 24 + = 171 (9x19)

919 is a "cyclic prime. It means that if we write it as 199 or 919 or 991, the resulting number is always a prime. Let us add these numbers:

199 + 919 + 991 = 2109 (9x111 = 19x3x37)

Both chapters 12 and 17 have 111 verses. Note that 12 + 17 = 29 the number of initialed suras and 337 is another "cyclic" prime, meaning 337, or 373, or 733 is a prime. The index of 337 is 68, the last initialed sura, the index of 373 is 74, the sura where the number 19 is mentioned and 733 = 619 + its index 114. God be glorified.

The two words, Becca and Mecca also tell us that Mohammad was from Mecca! Let us look at the gematrical values of these two words. Becca is 27 and Mecca is 65 and 27 + 65 = 92 which is the gematrical value of the word Mohammad. If you subtract 27 from 65 you get 38 which is the sequential value of the word Mohammad. Note that the sequential value of the word Becca is 18 and of Mecca is 29 and added up we get 47. Sura 47 is called Mohammad and it has 38 verses. If you subtract 18 from 29 your get 11 and 11 is the 19th number in the Quran. Also, the sum of digits in the three numbers 47, 92 and 38, all add up to 11. Let us glorify God and believe Him when He assures us that He has sent a book fully detailed.

The Smoke

Chapter 44 in the Quran is called THE SMOKE. It is the last sign of the end of the world before the invasion of Gog and Magog and eventual expiration of our physical universe. Sura 44 is on of the H.M. initialed suras. If we look at the counts of Hís and Mís, we find that there are 16 Hís, 150 Mís and a total of 166 Hís + Mís. All these numbers including the sura number and composites. The index of 44 is 29, the index of 16 is 9, the index of 150 is 114, the index of 166 is 127. These numbers in this sura are telling us mathematically that there is a book (Quran) with 114 chapters and 29 of them are initialed and its 9th chapter has 127 verses. God be praised.

Element 114

Recently, there was an article in Physical Review C (Nuclear Physics) where a calculation indicated that the chemical element number 114 (number of protons in the nucleus) is a magic nucleus [6]. A magic nucleus is a highly stable one with all the shells closed. The magic numbers in the nuclei are 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, and 82, as far as we know in the periodic table of elements. It is interesting to note that 2 + 8 + 20 + 28 + 50 + 82 = 190


Sura 57 in the Quran is called the iron. The iron (ALHADEED) in Arabic has a gematrical value of 57. The gematrical value of iron (HADEED) in Arabic is 26. Number 26 is the position of iron in the periodic table of elements. If you read Sura 57, iron is mentioned in verse 25. The last word God mentioned in Verse 25 is the 26th word God from the beginning of this sura. Again, the number of protons in the iron nucleus.

Eleven Planets

God gives news about the future to a messenger that He chooses [7]. Accordingly, God taught Joseph the interpretation of dreams and informed him about his future through dreams. We all know his history from the Quran, that he dreamt as a child that ELEVEN PLANETS and the sun and the mood are prostrating to him [8]. Let us look at the Arabic word ELEVEN PLANETS (AHADA AíSHAR KOAKABAN). The sequential value of the word KOAKABA is 31. Remember that the 11the prime is 31 and the 1131st prime is 9127. Sura 9 has 127 verses and God is actually telling us that in our solar system there are eleven planets. The last planet we know is Pluto, which is the ninth planet. Since its discovery in this century, it has only completed a forth of its orbit around the sun. Its period for one complete orbit is 248 years. There has been a consensus among astronomers that the wobble in Neptuneís in our solar system can not be explained by nine planets. Because of the wobble in the orbit of Neptune and more recently that of Pluto, there may be a tenth planet. This is because the gravity of the tenth planet causes distortions in the orbits of Neptune and Pluto. Direct observation of a tenth planet is a formidable task, because of the lack of sun light at the outer edge of our solar system and heavy light interference from the background stars and galaxies. But the biggest problem is where in the sky one would look for this planet.

Vancouver Meeting

The Vancouver meeting on October 15, 1993 at the University of British Columbia in the Student Union went very well, praise be to God. The audience was diverse and the mathematical miracle of the Quran was presented from the point of view of the "ULTIMATE MATHEMATICS". A great deal of interest was generated, expecially amoung young people. May God reward the believers in Vancouver for their tireless efforts to make this such a successful event. The editor would like to thank Mohammad and Luci Ben Jaafar (my hosts) for their sincere hospitality and for leading these efforts. May God continue His belssings upon them.
