GOD Insists: Sura 9 has 127 verses
Letter from the Editor:
The above title has been the theme of this Journal for the past many issues. This is GOD's persistence to warn us that His word has to be obeyed for the good of mankind. Just imagine two verses praising prophet Muhammad is so devastating to the "truth" of the universe that GOD has implemented such an elaborate mathematical structure for the Quran to expose the falsifiers.
Unfortunately, people continue to add and/or delete GOD's word and make substitutions according to their own personal desires and prejudices This matter is very serious and GOD will question those who practice such works on the day of judgment. GOD tells us in the Quran that His word is complete and fully detailed and He does not need scholars and self styled religious leaders to explain His word to others. GOD tells us that He teaches the Quran.
Understanding the Quran is not because of hard work and long labor, but because of submission to GOD and sincerity. Any other approach to the Quran makes it impossible to learn and GOD veils our eyes and instills deafness in our ears and we will be prevented from understanding.
The prohibitions that today's Muslims practice have nothing to do with the word of GOD as He has revealed to us in the Quran. Are these not additions and/or deletion to/of the word of GOD? These practices bring misery and disaster in this world and the eternal punishment of GOD in the hereafter.
Let me now tell you about a revelation of GOD to preserve the Quran as GOD has promised in the Quran,
15:9 -- Surely, We have revealed the reminder and indeed We are its protector.
The mathematics again preserve the number of verses in the Quran and points to chapter nine having 127 verses.
The number of the verses where the word "Allah" (GOD) has been mentioned until 9:127 is 790. I will remind the reader about what we know concerning 790 which has been published in previous issues of this Journal. If you assume that the number 790 is written in base 19, then if we write it in base 10 it will be 2698. The number 2698 is the total number of word "Allah" in the entire Quran, excluding the two added verses.
The 790th "lonely prime" is 9619. The reader immediately recognizes that chapter 96, the first revealed sura, has 19 verses. Furthermore, 9619 is the 1187th prime number and 1187 happens to be a "lonely prime" as well, and it happens to be the 114th "lonely prime". You recognize that 114 is the number of chapters in the Quran. The 1131st prime number is 9127, and
1131 - 790 = 341 341 = 11 x 31
These are some of the items about the number 790 in the Quran in order to refresh your memory. Now let us look at sura number 7 and 13 in the Quran and how GOD has given us a hint and how He relates these two suras through number 790. The first observation one makes about sura 7 and 13 is that both these suras start with the initials A, L. M., but do not belong to the six A.L.M.-initialed suras. Sura 7 includes the letter "Saad" and sura 13 includes the letter "Raa" in their initials. Furthermore, the 7th initialed sura is sura 13. We know that the total frequency of the initials A, L, M, and R usage in sura 13 is 1482. The total number of verses in the initialed suras to the end of chapter 7 is 692 and,
1482 - 692 = 790
We see that we are back to the number 790 which is the number of verses where the word Allah is mentioned until 9:127. Such is GOD's design, the Creator of all things.
Worshiping GOD Alone and Obeying His Commandments Equal Success
Many people complain and lament about their everyday lives and go as far as that there is no justice in this world and many fall into disbelief and rebellion against GOD. Many people believe that the entire universe is based on a crap shoot game and happy people are just "lucky". These groups fall into superstitions and carry good-luck charms or a rabbit foot to obtain luck and prosperity.
GOD tells us in the Quran that everything bad that happens to us is because of our own deeds. In other words, we, as humans, must look inwards and examine our lives and ask GOD to guide us to find out what it is we are doing wrong. Are we worshiping GOD alone or we are praising prophets, saints, imams and our leaders everyday of our life? If we are worshiping GOD alone, are we obeying His commandments? Are the children who are supposed to be a source of joy for us results of unrighteous acts? Does the money we earn come from a source of good or is it from usury, stealing or other illicit earnings? Are we practicing homosexuality or when we see it being practiced all around us, do we condone it? Are we advocating righteousness and forbidding evil? If we are females are we lengthening our garments and covering our chests? If we are men, do we take responsibility for women? Are we, being male or female subduing our eyes? These are a few examples of types of questions that we must ask ourselves and in fact, we owe it to ourselves to ask them frequently. Now if the answers to these questions are not fulfilling GOD's requirements, we have no one to blame but ourselves. How can we expect happiness and success if our earnings are illicit? How can we expect our children to be sources of joy if we are disbeliveers or the children are results of unrighteous and irresponsible affairs? Do we expect them to be good to us and be sources of pride and joy? Is it fair? These acts, if continued until death without repentance to GOD, will bring us misery for eternity and the severe punishment of hell.
Good news is that there is a way out. GOD tells that no matter what sins we have committed all we have to do is to repent to Him, and everything will be forgiven. The act of repentance means we have admitted that we were wrong and humbled ourselves to ask GOD's forgiveness. Remember that GOD gives us many chances to redeem ourselves and return to Him. He will then see to it that our situation will improve, and we will become happy and successful in this life. However, the best reward is the wages in the hereafter and bliss for eternity.
Please read the Quran carefully and ask GOD to increase your knowledge. Try to act in accordance with GOD's commandments. These are GOD's laws for our spritual well being. We must obey them for our own good. This is just like obeying GOD's physical laws. We must obey them in order to be able to build equipment, cars, planes, rockets, spaceships and other tools. We cannot go and jump off the 10th floor of a building and expect to stay unharmed. We must use an elevator or the stairs. GOD designed the gravity and we obey it, just as when we design an airplane, we must obey the laws of aerodynamics. Similarly, we cannot live happily by disobeying GOD's spiritual laws.
When You Read the Quran, Seek Refuge in GOD from Satan the Rejected
This is a commandment from GOD and we must obey Him in order to be successful. This commandment includes the Salat, contact prayer because we recite the very first sura in the Quran called the Key or the Opener. Remember that GOD tells that the most important aspect of the Salat is the commemoration of GOD. Satan will do his best to divert our mind from GOD and think about everything else but GOD. Many people even forget how many units they have performed during their Salat. Religious leaders throughout ages have even devised many prescriptions of how to fix when in doubt about the number of units in the contact prayer! We just obey the Quran, the word of GOD, and we will be under GOD's protection. This is the only prescription necessary for performing Salat. Therefore, every time you start your contact prayers, seek refuge in GOD from Satan, the rejected. GOD will give you refuge from Satan and you will make contact with GOD with complete focus of mind. Remember that this is GOD's commandment and we must obey our Creator.

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. The explanation of the mathematical structure of the Quran and the count of the initials as it was revealed to Rashad is an implicit Quranic component.
A Web version of Behruz's translation is now available for the viewers on http;//www.quraninfarsi.org. May GOD reward Behruz and Saeed Talari for their efforts.
