Awesome Mathematical Sign GOD Insists:

Chapter 9 has 127 verses Intricacy of GOD's Mathematical Signs

Letter from the editor:

We have known for a long time that chapter 9 in the Quran has 127 verses. We have also learned recently, by GOD's Grace, that not only chapter 9 has to have 127 verses, but that every sura (chapter) in the Quran is ought to have the specific number of verses that we see in the "Hefdh" (memorized) Quran. The "Hefdh" version of the Quran is the only version of the Quran approved by GOD [1], as far as the number of chapters and the number of verses are concerned. GOD informs us that He has sent us this reminder and He, most assuredly is "Hafedhoon". Here the phraseology of the Quran is extremely important to note that GOD uses the word "Hafedhoon" which has the root "Hafadha" meaning to keep something or to remember something. Now, again, back to why 9 has to have 127 verses.

We have seen many mathematical Signs from GOD why sura 9 must have 127 verses. But GOD never runs out of proof and He calms our hearts to reassure us that we may become believers. We know that verse 9:127 is the 1362nd verse from the beginning of the Quran and that 1362 is the 1143rd composite and we have:

1143 = 9 x 127

This is only part of the story. Note that sura 9 is uninitialled sura and 9:127 happens to be the 670th uninitialled verse from the beginning of the Quran. If we subtract this number from 1362 which is the total number verses upto and including 9:127 we get 692 which is the number of initialled verses as we would expect. But, if we subtract 670 from 1143 which is the index of 1362:

1143 - 670 = 473

and from GOD's Bounty we find that:

473 = 11 x 43

Futhermore, verse 11:43 in the Quran is the 1514th numbered verse from the beginning of the book. Obviously 1514 is a composite and it happens to be the 1273rd composite. The reader should note that the 1273rd frequency of the word GOD occurs in 9:127. All praises are due to GOD, Creator of all things.

Once again, humility overwhelms us when we are faced by these awesome Signs from our Creator. We shall glorify and thank GOD day and night and ask Him to keep us on the straight path. We must always remember that there is no power, except what is GOD's [2].

GOD Has Appointed us Rulers on Earth

GOD created Adam from black mud and appointed him as the first ruler on earth. He then commanded the angels to fall prostrate before GOD's appointee on earth. They all obeyed GOD, except for Satan, he turned arrogant and refused to be with the prostraters. GOD, then banishes Satan from the Higher Society, but respites him until the end of this physical universe to push his point that the choice of Adam as a ruler by GOD, was not a good one. This comes from the fact that Satan does not believe in GOD's Infinite Wisdom and does not recognize Him as The All Wise.

GOD warns us about Satan's tricks and enticements. If we ever fall for Satan's tricks, we have chosen him as our god, and we will follow him to hell. GOD also tells us that Satan has no power over His believing servants. This is to inform us that we can not blame our actions in this world on the devil and say, for example, "the devil made me do it".

Iron, a theoretical end of all matter?

By: Hossein Kowsari

17:49 -- They said, "After we turn into bones and fragments, do we get resurrected anew?!" 17:50 -- Say, "Even if you turn into rocks or iron. 17:51 -- "Even if you turn into any kind of creation that you deem impossible." They will then say, "Who will bring us back?" Say, "The One who created you in the first place." They will then shake their heads and say, "When will that be?" Say, "it may be closer than you think."

In 17:49 disbelievers, in effect, deny the resurrection. From experience, they have seen and they observe all around them that all bodies and all things turn into dust and fragments and so they think that is the end, and there will be no further changes and hence no resurrection. In 17:50,51 GOD answers the disbelievers and of course confirms the resurrection. In addition, apparently as further proof to future generations, He combines it with a scientific fact not known until the 20th century.

As you note the two verses are, essentially, stated in hypothetical form and two distinct ideas are expressed in them; one implicitly and one explicitly. It is clear from the verse that rocks and iron and not just bones, dust and fragments (as disbelievers thought) are the ultimate end of things and it is explicit that although iron would be the end, this state will not be reached (:EVEN IF you turn into.......).

The use of this example has been puzzling to students of Quran, because it seems to be out of place in this passage. Many explanations have been given such as: iron is very useful metal, it is very heavy and hard metal etc,. These are all true but do not resolve the dilemma as to why it has been cited in this particular connection.

The development of Quantum Mechanics and our understanding of quantum tunneling effect beginning in the 1920's, I think, has put a new light on this passage and proved once more the magnificence of the Quranic statement.

We can summarize these developments by stating that matter continues to seek its lowest energy level, most stable form (it achieves it through subatomic particle decay and absorption). We know that iron is the most stable element in the universe. According to the rules of Quantum Mechanics, given enough time, all matter (stars, trees, planets, humans, etc.,) will eventually turn into iron. In fact, some scientists have done speculative calculations showing that in about 10

1435 years essentially all that is left will turn into "purest iron, the element possessing the most stable nucleus". Then over even a longer span, in about 10

1676 years more transformation will take place and all that is left according to these scientists will be: "wandering bit of iron, few stray photons and black hole;" even if you turn into rocks or iron.... or any kind of creation that you deem impossible to , you will be resurrected....

According to recent calculations, based on Quranic data, our physical universse will expire in 2280, long before any of these can possibly take place, so we can see why GOD has used the example of iron, to refute erroneous understanding of the disbelievers regarding the end of matter, why He has used, the conditional form, something that may be theoretically possible but will not take place, to show that these verses, like every other verse of Quran is indeed from GOD

Do the disbelievers still insist that this Quran is from other than GOD? Praise be to GOD

Five Daily Contact Prayers

GOD, out of His Infinite Mercy has inspired a group of people who have chosen Him as their ally, how to perform good deeds, and how to do the contact prayers and how to give the obligatory charity [3]. GOD further tell us in the Quran that the contact prayers must be performed in specific times [4]. There has been disagreement, historically, when these times are to be. GOD in the Quran is very clear about these times and mentions these times in a most specific way not to leave any excuse for those who do not want to follow the word of GOD. Let us look at them very carefully.

In 24:58, where GOD talks about others requesting permission to enter one's room at private moments in their daily lives, He, specifically, mentions two contact prayers by name, "Assalat-Al-fajr" (the dawn contact prayer) and "Assalat-Al-esha" (the contact prayer at the time of the night when there is no light, i.e. after twilight is gone). Note here that GOD does not mention the so-called noon contact prayer, although, He mentions "noon". This is because, there is no so-called "noon prayer", since "noon" is not a period of time, but rather an instant in time and obviously, we can not finish our contact prayer in an "instant". GOD, however, tells us in 17:78 to perform the contact prayers in the period of the "declining sun". This period starts immediately after "noon". The same is true, for the so-called sunset prayer. Sunset is again an instant in time and not a period of time. GOD, therefore, appropriately has called this, in 11:114 as "Zolafan min-al-lail", which is the period of the night closer to the day or the period of night right after the sunset. GOD tells us about the "middle contact prayer" in 2:238. He tells us that we should observe the "contact prayers" which is in Arabic refers to more than two and the "middle prayer". This tells us that the number of the rest of the contact prayers has to be "even" and it has to be more than two, so that the middle contact prayer would be the third one and there will be two remaining. The "middle contact prayer" is usually due before sunset in a time known as the late afternoon or "asr".

We should try to remember these names as GOD is teaching us in the Quran. We should not stick to our ways and say, for example, noon prayer or sunset prayer, we should rather think of them as "the declining sun" contact prayer and "early evening" or "after sunset" contact prayer. This is GOD's Will and we can not prosper except in accordance with His Will.

More Mathematical Signs From GOD

GOD has described to us in the Quran that this book can only be from Him and no one else. We have been trying to show that it is not only the literal sense or its mathematical composition which can not be imitated, but that the mathematics used in the Quran is beyond our capability. Let me give another example of many examples given before in this journal.

The number of verses from beginning of the Quran to 19:98 which is the end of sura 19 is 2346 and 1998 is the index of 2346. If we count the number of verses from 9:1 to 19:98 we find that there are 1111 verses and if we do the same exercise from 9:1 to 23:46 we find that there are 1482 verses. The intricacy of GOD's Wisdom becomes evident when we note that verse 11:11 is the 1482nd verses from the beginning of the Quran.

We also learnt, by GOD's leave in the 5th issue, volume 4 of this journal that if we look at the initialled verses upto and including 11:11, we find that this verse is the 812th such verse. This number is a composite and its index is 670. We also note that 670th uninitialled verse from the beginning of the Quran is 9:127. Therefore, 1482 is partitionable into a composite and its index such that the index is referring to 9 having 127 verses. Note that 1482 is the number of frequency of the initials in sura 13. All praises are due to GOD, Creator of all things.

Signs for Initial Chapters

Saied Andalib, by GOD's Grace, found these new relations between the initial chapters in the Quran.

We know the sum of the sura numbers of the initial chapters is 822 and that the sum of their verses is 2743. Numbers 27 and 43 are both related to 13. 27 is 13'th initial chapter and 43 is the number of verses in chapter 13.

From 27 to 43 there are 12 initialed chapters. The sum of these 12 chapters and their verses is 1243, similar to 5 chapters 9 through 13 where there are 5 chapters and the last one being 13 and 513 = 19 x 27 is the total number of verses in these 5 chapters.

1243 = 11 x 113, and 113 being the 30th prime, 30 is also the number of verses of 89, which happens to be the number of verses in sura 43. Number 11 with 43 relates back to 9 and 127, i.e. 1143 = 9 x 127.

The sum of the remaining 17 initialed chapters and their verses is interestingly

(822 + 2743) - 1243 = 2 x 27 x 43 !

The number of A's and L's in the ALM + ALR + ALMR chapters (6 ALM's + 5 ALR's + ALMR in chapter 13) is

24890 = 10 x 2489

which coincides with the count of initials in chapter 10.

The ALM initials of chapter 31 are:

31 347 297 173

The sum of the reverses of these 4 numbers is:

13 + 743 + 792 + 371 = 1919

All praises are due GOD, Creator of all things.

A Note

A Farsi translation of the Quran by Behruz Mofidi is available. Interested parties should contact him directly in order to obtain more information. His address/phone number is:

P.O. Box 251902 Los Angeles, CA 90025 Tel: (310) 262-7838

Behruz Mofidi has expressed and is expressing, in the strongest terms, that although; he has translated the preface, the footnotes, the subtitles, the items in the parenthesis, and the appendices from Rashad's English translation of the Quran; these items ARE NOT parts of the Quran.

Good News

By GOD's Grace, we now have the Journal of Submission in PostScript format. If you have a postscript printer, please let us know and we will send it to you in this format, InshaAllah.

Meeting in Baton Rouge

Our meeting here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on the 18th and 19th of July 1997, masha Allah was attended by close to forty people. Twenty-one persons made the efforts to come from far away places in the US and Canada just to get a better chance to commemorate GOD and glorify His Name. The purpose of this meeting was for everyone to witness the latest findings of Ultimate Mathematics as revealed by GOD and to commemorate and glorify GOD with those who worship GOD Alone; and by GOD's Grace it turned out exactly as we planned it. My advise to all the participants is not to forget that our god is one god and all power belongs to Him. We must make sure not to idolize individuals or admire people for their worldly possessions, including their knowledge. These are vanities of this world and all is from GOD and belongs to Him. Do not forget commemorating GOD, for He is your only true friend and ally.
