God has ordered us to observe Hajj in four sacred months of the lunar (Islamic) calendar but these sacred months have been altered with the regular months as the Muslim World considers Rajab, Zul-Qi’dah, Zul-Hijjah, and Muharram (7th, 11th, 12th, 1st months) to be the Sacred Months disregarding the severe warning about the alternating of the sacred months with the regular months given in the Quran (9:37). There are many distortions and corruptions around Hajj inside (pilgrims) and outside (non-pilgrims) of it including the alternation of four sacred months but God has given us knowledge to restore back the four sacred months to Zul-Hijjah, Muharram, Safar, & Rabi`I (12th, 1st, 2nd, 3rd months) as decreed by Him. Here are the details based on the Quran and its mathematical code:
Altering the Sacred Months
The sacred months are altered despite a severe warning given in the Quran that it will be a sign of excessive disbelief.
[Quran 9:37] Altering the Sacred Months is a sign of excessive disbelief; it augments the straying of those who have disbelieved. They alternate the Sacred Months and the regular months, while preserving the number of months consecrated by God. They thus violate what God has consecrated. Their evil works are adorned in their eyes. God does not guide the disbelieving people.
Sacred Months are Continuous Months
The following verses in the Quran imply that the sacred months are continuous months:
[Quran 2:194] During the Sacred Months, aggression may be met by an equivalent response. If they attack you, you may retaliate by inflicting an equitable retribution. You shall observe God and know that God is with the righteous.
[Quran 9:5] Once the Sacred Months are past, (and they refuse to make peace) you may kill the idol worshipers when you encounter them, punish them, and resist every move they make. If they repent and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat), you shall let them go. God is Forgiver, Most Merciful.
[Quran 9:2] Therefore, roam the earth freely for four months, and know that you cannot escape from God, and that God humiliates the disbelievers.
[Quran 9:36] The count of months, as far as God is concerned, is twelve. This has been God’s law, since the day He created the heavens and the earth. Four of them are sacred. This is the perfect religion; you shall not wrong your souls (by fighting) during the Sacred Months. However, you may declare all-out war against the idol worshipers (even during the Sacred Months), when they declare all-out war against you, and know that God is on the side of the righteous.
Restriction during the Sacred Months
Fighting is restricted during the sacred month being a sacrilege therein unless the idol worshippers declare war against the believers and this restriction is for performing Hajj:
[Quran 9:36]… you shall not wrong your souls (by fighting) during the Sacred Months. However, you may declare all-out war against the idol worshipers (even during the Sacred Months), when they declare all-out war against you, and know that God is on the side of the righteous.
[Quran 2:217] They ask you about the Sacred Months and fighting therein: say, “Fighting therein is a sacrilege. However, repelling from the path of God and disbelieving in Him and in the sanctity of the Sacred Masjid, and evicting its people, are greater sacrileges in the sight of God…
Determination of Sacred Months
There is no dispute with Zul-Hijjah as one of the four sacred months. We all are comfortable with having Zul-Hijjah as one of the four sacred months as the name of this month implies connection with Hajj. Rabi` is derived from the root word Araba which means 4. There are 2 months in the lunar calendar with the name Rabi`; the third month – Rabi` I and the fourth month – Rabi` II. Use of the word Rabi` (implying 4) for the fourth calendar month is understandable, but why is the third month also has the word Rabi` in it. It is fourth of what? It is the fourth of the 4 sacred months beginning with Zul-Hijjah. Hence, the four sacred months are Zul-Hijjah, Muharram, Safar, & Rabi` I (12th, 1st, 2nd, 3rd months).
Mathematical Confirmation of Sacred Months
The mathematical confirmation is derived from the Hajj verse, (2:197)connected with the four sacred months.
[Quran 2:197] Hajj shall be observed in the specified months. Whoever sets out to observe Hajj shall refrain from sexual intercourse, misconduct, and arguments throughout Hajj. Whatever good you do, GOD is fully aware thereof. As you prepare your provisions for the journey, the best provision is righteousness. You shall observe Me, O you who possess intelligence.
Gemetrical values of the letters in the names of four sacred months
The Gematrical Values (GV) of the letters in Zul-Hijjah are 700, 61, 308, 3, 5 => 7006130835
The GV of the letters in Muharram are 40, 8, 200, 40 => 40820040
The GV of the letters in Safar are 90, 80, 200 => 9080200
The GV of the letters in Rabi` I are 200, 2, 10, 70, 1, 6, 30 => 200210701630
The sum of the gematrical values in the names of four sacred months and the digits of sura and verse numbers connected with Hajj is a multiple of 19, a common denominator of Quran’s figures obtained from numerical analysis => 7006130835 + 40820040 + 9080200 + 200210701630 + 2 + 197 = 207266732904 = 19×10908775416.
Hajj is decreed in the four sacred months of lunar calendar but the specified months have been alternated with the regular months despite severe warning in the Quran. The sacred months are restored to Zul-Hijjah, Muharram, Safar, & Rabi` I (12th, 1st, 2nd, 3rd months) based on logical decision, which has also been confirmed from the Quran and by the mathematical interpretation, the knowledge given to the people of this generation.
The time of Hajj has been reduced from four months to the first ten days of Zul-Hijjah (12th month) is a direct violation of God’s commandment. The price of abandoning God’s laws are many problems and disasters have been happening in and around the Hajj season because of the overcrowding due to limiting the Hajj time to only ten days instead of 4 months! If Hajj is spread over the four months as commanded by God in the Quran, all the millions of Muslims who wish to make it to Hajj would have a fair chance to do so, and the overcrowding with all its multiple problems and difficulties would be eliminated.
