Those who have believed in God and in the Hereafter must know how awesome God’s promise is, especially in the case of preservation of the revealed Quran, a copy of the original Quran preserved at God (lawheen mahfuzin) sent down to serve as guidance, the statute book and a reminder for humanity until the end of the world! We know that the Quran undergoes a series of changes that occurs through oral and written transmission without missing any single message from it. Is it not a perfect preservation of Quran? However, God has given us tools in the Quran to detect any distortion or slightest change if it occurs in its way as well as to eliminate any disputes or misinterpretation through unveiling of the physical facts to confirm that every element of the Quran is from God including the arrangement of suras in the composition, sura names and revelation order of suras despite their revelation with intermission.
Distortions and entering falsehood in the reminder
God has sent down His revelations from time to time, and those who have made distortions in His revelations are not hidden from Him as He is Seer of everything while no falsehood can retain in His revelation in the past or in the future as it is a revelation from Wise, Praiseworthy:
[41:40] Indeed, those who distort in our revelations are not hidden from us. Is then whoever is thrown into Hell better or whoever comes secure on a day of the Resurrection? Do whatever you wish. Indeed, He is Seer of what you do.
[41:41] Indeed, those who have disbelieved in the reminder when it came to them while it is indeed, a powerful scripture.
[41:42] The falsehood cannot enter it of its past nor of its future, a revelation from Wise, Praiseworthy.
What does protection of the Quran mean to us?
God has promised in the Quran that He will protect it if attempts are made to change in it or He will bring people back to when they are away from it:
[15:9] Indeed, we have revealed the reminder, and indeed, we will certainly be protectors of it.
[27:82] And when has fulfilled the punishment upon them, we have brought forth for them a creature from the earth speaks to them that the people have been with our revelations do not ascertain.
Many of us are not sure what does this perfect preservation of the Qur’an exactly mean? Of course, it does not mean that there would not be any human errors or printing mistakes in it as it is divinely protected or the invisible force will come down to protect it when any extraneous materials are injected into it. This preservation means the Qur’an, the correct Qur’an, the complete Qur’an, continues to exist, and every single letter in the Qur’an has been divinely protected; not a single letter has been lost.
We know now exactly what it looks like, exactly how many letters it contains, exactly what extraneous materials have been injected and what distortions have taken place, either inadvertently or purposely.
Fulfillment of covenant with the prophets
Our generation has witnessed the fulfillment of covenant with all the prophets, which means placed in every scripture including the Quran helps us to understand the perfect protection of Quran as well as to purify our beliefs and practices removing all misconceptions and corruptions occurred over the period of time followed by the death of the prophet:
[3:81] And when God has taken a covenant of the prophets: “Certainly, whatever I have given you of scripture and wisdom, then has come to you a messenger confirming that which is with yourselves. You must believe in him and you must support him.” He said: “Have you affirmed and taken My covenant on that?” They said: “We have affirmed.” He said: “Then you shall bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.”
[33:7] And when we have taken their covenant from the prophets, and from you (Muhammad), and from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary. And we have taken a solemn covenant from them.
The covenant revealed in every scripture including the Quran as well as confirming it in the Quran to send a messenger after delivering all the scripture has been fulfilled followed by the fulfillment of the prophecy to produce an earthly creature (27:82), i.e., the computer that has intelligence to compute most accurate calculations faster than human being. Here what we see in the prophecy that such tool is required to unveil the Quran’s numerical code by God’s leave for the authenticity of the Quran to bring people back to His revelations presenting physical proofs. It is noted that it takes more than a century to build this tool to prepare the way for His messenger so that he can serve as a preacher of the scientifically and technologically advanced community as we know that there is no coincidence as per God is concern but everything takes place according to His master plan. If we understand the relationship of the fulfillment of these two prophecies reflecting on the warning given in one of the prophecies, we may find God’s wisdom to guide us to the straight path when the majority of us are away from His revelations and His religion becomes man-made ones.
19 is a sign to support God’s messenger of covenant
God designed and perfected the Quran in the Arabic language and sent it to the world with an incontrovertible proof of divinity. In fact, 19 is the prophetic sign to support His messenger who has been chosen to fulfill His prophecy as God did in the case of previous prophets and messengers while Moses was given nine miracles. Therefore, the message that has been sent with this messenger is “the mathematical coding of Quran”, which has been introduced to us to be the “literary mathematical composition of Quran” supported by a great miracle, the number 19 for his acceptance to the people. However, 19 is also the code of Quran, which serves as the common denominator of the numerical figures derived from the numerical analysis of Quran. If we could reflect on the message sent with the messenger and the miracle to support him as God wants us to do as Saleh was given the message supported by she-camel for his people to accept him as God’s messenger (7:75), we should not have any issue to accept him as a messenger to follow the message to understand His revelations and fulfill our obligations to Him to please Him in a right way:
[74:30] Over it is nineteen
[74:31] And we have not made guardians of the Fire except angels, and we have not made their number except a warning for those who disbelieved, that it may ascertain those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and may increase faith of those who have believed (Muslims), and may not doubt those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and the believers (Muslims). And that may say those in their hearts there is a disease (hypocrites) and the disbelievers, “What has God meant by this allegory?” Thus, God misguides whomever He wills and He guides whomever He wills. And none knows your Lord’s soldiers except He. And it is not except a reminder for the human race.
[74:32-34] Nay, (I swear) by the moon, the night as it passes and the morning as it shines.
[74:35] Indeed, this is undoubtedly one of the great (miracles).
[74:36-37] A warning for the human race. For whoever among you has willed that he may advance, or he may stay behind.
The number 19 associated with the fulfillment of the prophecy was a future event at the time of revelation of Quran, which also matches the title of the sura being Al-Muddath-thir (The Hidden One). The verses 31-37 clearly refer to the number mentioned in the verse 30 as we see “over it (alayha) is nineteen”, “it (hiya) is a reminder (dhik’raa) for the humans” in 31 and “this (innaha) is one of the great miracles” in 35 being “it” a feminine gender in relevant verses while the scripture (Quran) is consistently referred as the masculine gender in the Quran. However, the acceptance of the messenger because of the fulfillment of prophecy would be a matter of the people who will be witnessing it. In fact, this code is a reminder as well as warning for the people of the whole world in (36-37) irrespective of their religious faiths/groups to bring them back to the religion given by God (27:82).
God has counted number of all things
God has given us knowledge to count and calculate to maintain precise and comprehensible records for our business or day to day living, and He has done the same what He has reminded us if we reflect to the following verse of His final scripture.
[72:28] That He may make evident that certainly, they have conveyed messages of their Lord; and He has encompassed of what is with them, and has counted number of all things.
This verse teaches that God wants us to use counting process to resolve many of our issues and disputes providing extra clues in the verse to do that. The Arabic word “adad” means “number” (noun) comes from the root word “adda” means to count (verb) occurs 57 times in all its forms in the whole Quran, which is equal to the number of times Quran is mentioned in the Quran, and 57 is a multiple of 19 => 57 = 19x 3. In addition, the digits of sura number and verse number add up to 7 + 2 +2 + 8 = 19. Furthermore, the gematrical value of the verb “adda” meaning ‘to count’ is 74, and 74 is the Sura where God mentions the number 19, a prime number and the foundation upon which the mathematical coding of Quran is built. However, here are the instances of “adda” in all forms in the Quran to confirm upon review:
(1) 2:24, (2) 2:28, (3) 2:80, (4) 2:184, (5) 2:184, (6) 2:185, (7) 2:185, (8) 2:203, (9) 3:24, (10) 3:131, (11) 3:133, (12) 4:93, (13) 4:102, (14) 8:60, (15) 9:36, (16) 9:37, (17) 9:46, (18) (9:46, (19) 9:89, (20) 9:100, (21) 10:5, (22) 11:8, (23) 11:104, (24) 12:20, (25) 14:34, (26) 16:18, (27) 17:12, (28) 18:11, (29) 18:22, (30) 19:84, (31) 19:84, (32) 19:94, (33) 19:94, (34) 22:47,(35) 23:112, (36) 23:113, (37) 32:5, (38) 33:8, (39) 33:29, (40) 33:35, (41) 33:44, (42) 33:49, (43) 33:49, (44) 33:57, (45) 33:64, (46) 38:62, (47) 48:6, (48) 57:21, (49) 58:15, (50) 65:1, (51) 65:1, (52) 65:4, (53) 65:10, (54) 72:24, (55) 74:31, (56) 76:31, (57) 104:2.`
Injection of 2 false verses into Quran
The injection of the two false verses 9:128 and 9:129 was in accordance with God’s will, which is an evidence to us that God’s promise is true when the injected 2 false verses in the Quran is detected using His built-in system. These verses demonstrated one of the major functions of the Quran’s mathematical system, and proved that no falsehood could enter into the Quran, as promised by God (41:42). The false verses also resulted in an awesome miracle in its own right, by God’s grace and wisdom.
There are many logical and historical records that indicate the injection of these 2 false verses in sura 9. The conspicuous absence of the opening Bismallah from sura 9, every single verse in the Qur’an was verified by a multiplicity of witnesses during rewriting of Quran except the last two verses of Sura 9 and how Meccan verses are found in Medinan sura are noteworthy. But here are the counts of total number of verses in the Quran including the most important words in it confirm such insertion per Quran’s built-in mathematical system:
1. The count of the total number of verses in the Qur’an, is 6348 when the last two verses of Sura 9 are included, and 6346 (19×334) when these two verses are excluded.
2. The count of the most important word in Qur’an, the word ALLAH, is 2699 when the last two verses of Sura 9 are included, and 2698 (19×142) when these two verses are excluded.
3. The count of the word ELAH (god) is 96 when Verses 9:128 &129 are included, and 95 (19×5) when these two verses are excluded.
4. The count of the word RABB (Lord) is 970 with the two statements, and 969 (19×51) without them.
5. The count of the word RAHEEM (merciful) is 115 when the two statements are included and 114 (19×6) when they are excluded.
6. The count of the word RASOOL (messenger) is 115 with the two verses and 114 (19×6) without them.
7. The word ANFUS (Selves) occurs 153 times when the two statements are included, and 152 (19×8) when they are excluded.
8. The word TAWALLAW (they turn away) occurs 20 times when 9:129 is included; 19 times when it is excluded.
9. The word TAWAKKAL (Trust) in imperfect form occurs 20 times when 9:129 is counted, and 19 (19×1) when it is not counted.
10. The word ‘ARSH (Throne or Dominion) occurs 20 times when the two false verses 9: 128 &129 are counted, and 19 times without them.
Thus, there are 10 crucial violations of Qur’an’s mathematical code, and all 10 violations are located in the last two verses of Sura 9. Is it coincidence? Of course not to them who have intelligence.
The revealed Quran is divinely protected means the correct Qur’an, the complete Qur’an, continues to exist even without being lost a single letter. The Quran’s literary excellence reinforced with its mathematical composition is beyond imitation by any of His creatures, even all humans and jinns put together. Therefore, one of the major functions of the Quran’s mathematical composition is to guard every letter and every aspect of the Quran. Thus, the believers are assured that there is no human intervention, and no falsehood in the Quran. It is a protected book by its Designer as promised.
The injection of 2 false verses into Quran is according to God’s will and the detection of these 2 false verses is a proof for us that God’s promise is true that no falsehood could enter into the Quran. However, some people rightfully question that if God’s promise is true, then no one should have been able to add the two false verses into the Quran in the first place. The addition of these false verses is in accordance with God’s master plan. Even the people who had the Quran with the additional two verses did not lose any information. The original Quran is still preserved. The mathematical structure of the Quran which was destined to be unveiled 1400 years after the Quran’s revelation proved the impossibility of such tampering, and exposed the hypocrites. However, such injection is not acceptable to the majority Muslims except a sacrilege to the Quran due to their rejection of God’s messenger sent with the message of the literary mathematical composition of Quran supported by a great miracle, the number 19.
God is merciful and He has not only given us hearing, vision and intelligence (17:36) but He has also given us both logical and physical proofs to accept the truth from Him. If we reject them for failing to reflect on them or out of jealousy, then we would only be responsible for our consequences on the Day of Judgment. Even, we have the opportunity to accept the truth from God reflecting on the warning given to His prophet not to move his tongue informing that the explanation of Quran would be in the Quran on behalf of Him which means Quran has answers of all our questions and concern:
[75:16-19] Do not move your tongue to hasten it. It is we who will collect it into Quran. Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran. Then it is we who will explain it.
Peaceful Friday, salaam and God bless.
