We Are Beginning Our 8th Year By GOD's Grace
Letter from the Editor:
This issue marks the completion of seven years of publication of the Journal of Submission and the beginning of its eighth year by the Grace of the Almighty. We have always asked GOD to make us adhere to HIS word, the Quran, and help us not to deviate from it. GOD accordingly has revealed many facets of His Book to us and has proven to us that the Quran is a fully detailed book and that it is mathematically coded with mathematics impossible for humans to handle (Ultimate Mathematics). We have learned that we must worship GOD ALONE and never set up partners for HIM. We have learned that we must call upon our Creator, GOD, with names that He calls Himself in the Quran. We have learned that nothing is possible without GOD's will, permission, and help. We have learned that we must be patient and do not rush. We have learned that we must be kind and caring. We have learned that we must not aggress. We have learned that we must be content with what GOD has given us and not be greedy for more. We have learned that this worldly life is nil compared to the hereafter. We have learned that we have to be grateful to GOD for only a few of GOD's servants are grateful. We have learned that we must encourage righteousness and discourage evil. We have learned that the more we obey GOD's commandments the better off we are.
GOD has blessed us with His Grace and will continue to shower us with His blessings as long as we are grateful and appreciative to Him. In the start of the eighth year of this Journal, we ask GOD to keep us in the straight path and give us refuge from the enticements of the devil. I am saying to you that GOD is always near and He responds to those who call upon Him, therefore you should respond to GOD and believe in Him that you may be guided. 
GOD Insists: Sura 9 has 127 verses
Again, by GOD's Grace we are back to the above title and GOD's insistence to keep His word pure. I repeat myself and warn those who insist upon additions to and deletions from the Quran in order to preserve their traditions and the pride of the days of ignorance. These Signs from GOD and His persistence is to warn us that His word has to be obeyed without input from people's opinion.
15:9 - Surely, We have revealed the reminder and indeed We are its protector.
The mathematics again preserves the count of verses and points to chapter nine having 127 verses. This time the mathematics crosses across number bases and glorifies GOD by absolute submission to Him.
The number of the numbered verses in the un-initialed chapters up to 9:127 is 670. The total number of numbered verses up to 9:127 is 1362, it is the 1143rd composite, and we already know that.
1143 = 9 x 127
1143 - 670 = 473
473 = 11 x 43
Now let us examine the verse 11:43. This verse is the 1514th numbered verse from the beginning of the Quran. The index of the composite 1514 is 1273 = 19 x 67 is exactly the total frequency of the word "Allah" up to 9:127. We know that the 8th prime number is 19 and now let us assume that 1514 is written in octal or base 8. If we write in decimal or 10 that everyone is used to, we obtain the number 844.
The number 844 is exactly the number of verses in the initialed chapters until verse 11:43.
Such is GOD's Design, Creator of all things.
GOD's Provisions Spread Throughout the Universe
Recently, NASA announced the possible discovery of liquid water flowing on the Martian surface. We have known for a long time that water in the form of ice exists in the polar region of Mars, but this new discovery is telling us that GOD has also provided the water in liquid form for future colonizers of Mars. The Quran informs us that GOD created every living thing from water . Therefore, one would expect that life at some level must exist on Mars. Remember that when GOD refers to the word "Ardh" in the Quran, He does not mean Earth, but all planets and their moons that He has "spread out" throughout the universe. Therefore, there is no reason not to expect living creatures throughout the universe. Therefore, there is no reason not to expect living creatures throughout GOD's land that He, by the way, calls it "spacious". The discovery of life on other planets will be further proof of GOD's Omnipotence.
Gay lifestyle Condemned by GOD
In the past 20 years or so the open gay lifestyle has been in the news and there is push to make this sexual orientation an acceptable norm of the society. The state of Vermont has recently passed legislatures legalizing gay unions. We know from the Quran as well as previous scriptures that GOD annihilated the people of Lot for practicing this way of life. GOD calls this an "abomination" as we read in the Quran:
26:160 - The people of Lot disbelieved the messengers.
26:161 - Their brother Lot said to them, "Would you not be righteous?"
26:162 - "I am an honest messenger to you."
26:163 - "Observe God and obey me."
26:164 - "I do not ask you for any pay; my wage comes from God, Lord of the universe."
26:165 - "How could you practice sex with males;
26:166 - instead of your wives that your Lord created for you?: You are really wicked"
26:167 - They said, "Unless you refrain, O Lot, you will be banished."
26:168 - He said, "I condemn your actions."
26:169 - "My Lord, deliver me and my family from their works."
26:170 - We saved him and all his family;
26:171 - except a condemned old woman.
26:172 - And we destroyed the others.
26:173 - We showered them a miserable shower, after having warned them.
26:174 - This should be a lesson, but most people are not to believe.
26:175 - Surely, your Lord is the Almighty, the All Merciful.
We see from these verses that wages of this sin is death and GOD saved Lot's family except for his wife who used to betray Lot and had feelings toward the sinners. Quran also teaches us that when the number of gays increases in a society they will impose their lifestyles on others. GOD tells us in the Quran  when His messengers went to Lot the people of the city came joyfully and demanded from Lot to turn over his guests to them. Lot was so embarrassed that he tells them it would be more righteous if they take his daughters. Lot's people then respond: "you know what we want". GOD has given us a warning in the form of AIDS, but people still heedlessly practice this abomination and try to make it a recognized way of life. Remember that Lot never resorted to violence against his people and people who practice gay-bashing and other violent means are not inspired by GOD. Our sole mission is to deliver GOD's message and advocate righteousness and discourage evil. Recently, here in Baton Rouge, a group of high school students in McKinely High School proposed the establishment of the Gay-Straight Alliance club and unfortunately it was approved. The students duped many people into thinking that their struggle is as just as the Civil Rights struggle of the 60's. We, as students of the Quran, know that the variation of skin color is a SIGN FROM GOD, while the gay lifestyle is an ABOMINATION. We accordingly love GOD's Signs and dislike abominations.
Another Mathematical Sign From God
Th number of suras in the Quran is 114 in which 29 of them are initialed. This will leave us with 85 un-initialed suras in the Quran. There is a unique mathematical property associated with the composite number 2985, as we will see below. We know that every composite number can be factored out into prime numbers. Therefore:
2985 = 3 x 5 x 199
The indices of the prime numbers 3, 5, and 199 are 2, 3, and 46. The number 2346 is the exact count of numbered verses until the end of chapter 19. We have known this for a few years that the index of composite 2346 is 1998 and that sura 19 has 98 verses and that
2346 = 23 x 2 x 3 x17
Where the indices of these primes are 9, 1, 2, 7. This again tells us that sura 9 has 127 verses.
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:

Behruz Mofidi has expressed and is expressing, in the strongest terms, that although; he has translated 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 Saees Talari for their efforts.
A second Farsi translation of the Quran has just been completed by Hossein Kowsari. For more information, please contact Hossien at the following e-mail:
