Arabic Quran is a revelation of God and math confirmation

Authorship of the Quran

The Quran, a revelation from God is sent down with the proof of divine authorship. In other words, God is the author of the Quran. There are many references in the Quran that the Quran having literary excellence and mathematical composition came from God. The evidences are frequently provided with referring to the following 2 kinds of verses of the Quran, one for the literary and the other for the mathematical proof for His authorship of it:

[10:37] This Quran could not be authored by other than God. It confirms which was before it, and is a fully detailed scripture. There is no doubt about it that it is from the Lord of the universe.
[11:1] Alif Lam Rah. This is a scripture whose verses have been perfected, then detailed out from the One who is Most Wise, Most Cognizant.
[26:192] Surely, this is a revelation from the Lord of the universe.
[4:82] Why do they not study the Quran carefully? If it were from other than God, they would have found in it many contradictions.
[6:155] This is a blessed scripture that we have revealed; you shall follow it and lead a righteous life.
[21:50] And this is a blessed reminder that we sent down. Will you then be the deniers of it?
[44:3] Indeed, we have revealed it in a blessed night, for we are to warn.
[97:1] We have sent it down in the night of destiny.

Note: The above verses are the literary proofs in the Quran that the Quran comes from the Lord of the universe, the Most Wise, the Most Cognizant.

[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] And we made the angels to be guardians of Hell, and we did make their number except: (1) to warn the disbelievers, (2) to make certain for those who were given the scripture, (3) to strengthen the faith of those who believe, and (4) to eliminate any doubt from those who were given the scripture and the believers. Those who have disease in their hearts as well as the disbelievers would say, “What did God mean by this allegory?” Thus, God misguides whomever he wills and He guides whomever He wills. None knows your Lord’s soldiers except He. And it is but a reminder for the humans.
[74:32-35] Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon. And the night as it passes. And the morning as it shines. This is one of the great (miracles).
[74:36-37] A warning to the human race. For those among you who wish to advance or regress.

Note: Although the above verses are often referred as the mathematical proof to be the Quran from God but these verses, in fact code the 19-based built-in mathematical system to be a reminder in the Quran for humanity to lead them to the right path through analyzing the Quran indicating the wondrous nature of Quran. Upon unveiling of 19 being a prophetic sign associated with the fulfillment of prophecy in the Quran and the common denominator of numerical data derived from the Quran is contributing for accurate interpretation of many verses of the Quran to confirm certain crucial events and commandments to perfect our beliefs and practices along with a possibility of having a one standardized edition of the Quran for all. Such comprehensive mathematical coding of the Quran gives a unique characteristic to it, which could not be possible to author other than God. Since the Quran is characterized by the mathematical literary composition, the Quran is from God.

However, God has infinite wisdom so does the Quran, and He has blessed us to have an explicit mathematical confirmation to be an Arabic Quran, a revelation of the scripture from God upon reviewing the pertinent verses in the Quran as detailed below.

Quran, a revelation from God

There are 15 instances of the Arabic word, tanzeel in the Quran in the masculine noun form meaning a revelation or a communication, which precisely can be called a divine communication of knowledge to the mankind. Out of 15, 12 instances deal with the scripture, a revelation from God while 2 instances deal with its way of descending and the other one deals with the descending of the angels on the Day of Judgment. Let us review all the verses where the instances of tanzeel are found to understand what they are referring to:

[20:4] A revelation (tanzeelan) from Him who created the earth and the high heavens.
[26:192] Surely, this is a revelation (latanzeelu) from the Lord of the universe.
[32:2] The revelation (tanzeelu) of the scripture wherein there is no doubt, is from the Lord of the universe.
[36:5] A revelation (tanzeela) of the Almighty, the Most Merciful.
[39:1] The revelation (tanzeelu) of the scripture, is from God, the Almighty, the Most Wise.
[40:2] The revelation (tanzeelu) of the scripture is from God, the Almighty, the Omniscient.
[41:2] A revelation (tanzeelun) from the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
[41:42] No falsehood could enter it, in the past or in the future; a revelation (tanzeelun) from a Most Wise, a Praiseworthy.
[45:2] The revelation (tanzeelu) of the scripture is from God, the Almighty, the Most Wise.
[46:2] The revelation (tanzeelu) of the scripture is from God, the Almighty, the Most Wise.
[56:80] A revelation (tanzeelun) from the Lord of the universe.
[69:43] A revelation (tanzeelun) from the Lord of the universe.

The above verses confirm that the revelation of the scripture is from God with His authorship attaching His 8 great attributes mentioning 19 times along with 4 times of His own name, God (in proper noun). The attributes of God that have been mentioned 19 times are: (1) Creator – 1, (2) Lord – 4, (3) the Almighty- 5, (4) the Most Wise – 4, (5) the Most Merciful – 2, (6) the Most Gracious – 1, (7) the Omniscient – 1 and (8) a Praiseworthy – 1. The scripture has been associated with a revelation 5 times in the set of verses as God knows that His revelation will be in written form for accurate preservation and propagation while a revelation is a verbal communication.

However, there are also 3 other instances of tanzeelan found in the Quran that are not directly connected to the instances dealing with a revelation from God:

[17:106] And a Quran that we have divided into parts that you may read it to the people over a period of time; and we have sent it down gradually (tanzeelan) .
[25:25] And the day the sky will split into masses of clouds, and the angels will be sent down in succession (tanzeelan) .
[76:23] We have revealed to you the Quran, a revelation (tanzeelan).

Note: the messages in the above verses including the position of the instance (tanzeelan) at the end of the verses indicates that these verses are not directly connected to the above set of verses as there is no specific mention of a revelation from God.

An Arabic Quran, a revelation from God

There are 11 references of an Arabic Quran in the Quran in the following 11 straight forward verses that the Quran has been revealed in Arabic:

[12:2] We have revealed it an Arabic (‘arabiyyan) Quran so that you may understand.
[13:37] And thus, we revealed it as a law in Arabic (‘arabiyyan), and if you follow their desires, after what has come to you of the knowledge, you will have no ally, nor a protector against God.
Note: Quran is a source of law in Arabic and all of us are to use the knowledge that has come to us.

[16:103] And we are aware that they say, “A human being is teaching him!” The tongue of the one they refer to is non-Arabic, and this is a clear Arabic (‘arabiyyun) tongue.
[20:113] We thus revealed it, an Arabic (‘arabiyyan) Quran, and we mentioned in it the warning that they may fear, or it may cause them to take heed.
Note: There is a warning in it to fear God as well as to take heed.

[26:195] In a clear Arabic (‘arabiyyin) tongue.
[39:28] An Arabic (‘arabiyyan) Quran, without any crookedness, so that they may be righteous.

[41:3] A scripture, its verses are detailed in an Arabic (‘arabiyyan) Quran for people who know.
[41:44] If we had made it a non-Arabic Quran, they would have said, “Why are not its verses so explained?” Is it non-Arabic or Arabic (‘arabiyyun)? Say, “It is for those who believe, is a guidance and a healing but those who do not believe, there is a deafness in their ears and they are blind to it. These are being addressed from faraway.”
Note: Quran has been revealed in Arabic to make it clear to understand and follow to be a guidance and a healing for those who believe, and the language would not be an issue or concern for them while the disbelievers will be deaf and blind to it.

[42:7] We thus have revealed to you an Arabic (‘arabiyyan) Quran to warn the mother town and whoever around it, and to warn of the Day of Gathering, there is no doubt about it. Some will be in Paradise and some will be in blazing Fire.
Note: There is a warning in the Arabic Quran of the Day of Gathering that some will be in Paradise and some will be in the blazing Fire.

[43:3] We have made it an Arabic (‘arabiyyan) Quran so that you may understand.
[46:12] And before this, the scripture of Moses was a guidance and mercy. This is a confirming scripture in Arabic (‘arabiyyan) tongue, to warn those who transgressed, and to give good news to the righteous.
Note: This is a confirming scripture in Arabic language to warn the transgressors and to give good news to the righteous.

Mathematical Confirmation

There are 2 distinct sets of verses in the Quran: one set consisting of 12 verses across 11 suras dealing with a revelation of the scripture from God and the other set consisting of 11 verses across 10 suras dealing with an Arabic Quran. If the rel sura evant # and verse # are added, the sum is a multiple of 19 => 1672 = 19x88 (See table below for details):

This mathematical interpretation confirms that an Arabic Quran is a revelation of the scripture from God being a confirming scripture to serve as a guidance as well as a healing for the believers attaching His authorship repeating 19 times of 8 great attributes. In addition, the following facts may also be reflected to realize the awesomeness of this mathematical confirmation:

  • The confirming scripture in Arabic serves as a bridge between 2 sets of verses since there is no mention of Quran in the first set but the scripture has been mentioned 5 times in the set while there is reference of Quran in every verse including a confirming scripture in the second set.
  • These 2 distinct sets are closely linked to one another while the individual set cannot be mathematically confirmed, is an indication that these 2 sets are inseparable for better understanding of an Arabic Quran, a revelation of the scripture from God being a confirming scripture.
  • The product in the calculation, which is 88, is a multiple of the sum of total sura and verse #, which is 44 [21+23] in the calculation, and the multiplier is 2 => 88 = 44x2 which confirms the participation of 2 sets of verses in the confirmation.
  • A warning in the Arabic Quran of the Day of Gathering without any doubt in it that some will be in Paradise and some will be in the blazing Fire.
  • Quran has been made Arabic to make it clear to understand and follow to be a guidance and a healing for the believers while the disbelievers will be deaf and blind to it,

Conclusion

2 distinct sets of verses are reviewed together to understand that an Arabic Quran is a revelation of the scripture from God. The first set of 12 verses across 11 suras dealing with a revelation from God states that there is no doubt about a revelation from God who created the earth and the high heavens. The revelation of the scripture is from God with His authorship attaching His 8 great attributes: (1) the Creator, (2) the Lord, (3) the Almighty, (4) the Most Wise, (5) the Most Merciful, (6) the Most Gracious, (7) the Omniscient and (8) a Praiseworthy, which are mentioned 19 times by repeating some of His attributes in the set.

The second set of 11 verses across 10 suras dealing with an Arabic Quran, a revelation from God states that the Quran has been revealed in Arabic to make it clear to understand and follow being a guidance and a healing for those who believe, and the language would not be an issue or concern for them while the disbelievers will be deaf and blind to it. It is a source of law in Arabic and all of us are to use the knowledge that has come to us in it. There is a warning in Arabic Quran to fear God as well as to take heed. There is also a warning of the Day of Gathering that some will be in Paradise and some will be in the blazing Fire. This is a confirming scripture in Arabic language to warn the transgressors but to give good news to the righteous.

Those who can read the Arabic may appreciate the excellence of the literature of the Quran but those who do not know the Arabic, may appreciate the excellence of the message by reading the Quran in any language keeping in mind that God guarantees the message in the Arabic Quran. Since understanding of God’s teachings and laws in the Quran is the priority, having the Quran in an Arabic or non-Arabic book may not make a difference but in case of any misinterpretation, disputes or discrepancies in any translation or across the translations must be addressed to make an inquiry into the Arabic Quran, and God has promised in the Quran that a pure Arabic Quran will continue to exist until the end of the world without missing a single message from it (15:9).

God is the author of the Arabic Quran, a scripture with a solid physical proof of His authorship confirmed from the 23 straightforward verses consisting of 2 distinct sets in the Quran. It may be an opportunity for the believers who want to strengthen their belief in the Almighty God, His religion, the way He can be remembered and pleased, and the Quran, a source of knowledge to confirm His way to do His given rites right way to deserve His Paradise as promised to the righteous. It may also help them focus on the divine source diverting it from other sources, scholars, imams, saints, prophets or messengers introduced by the Satan. God has infinite wisdom so does the Quran, and He has blessed us to have an explicit confirmation of an Arabic Quran, a revelation of the scripture from God upon reviewing the pertinent verses of the Quran. Is it not a wonder for us that not only an Arabic Quran, a revelation of the scripture from God but also a confirming scripture in Arabic to serve as a guidance and a healing for the believers has come with both literary and mathematical confirmation?
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
