Mathematical Miracle of the Quran by Rashad Khalifa – Transcript

Video Intro:

  • Islamic Productions Presents
  • Mathematical Miracle of the Qur’an
  • The word “GOD” occurs in the Quran 2698 times, and 2698 = 19 x 142
  • The numbers of suras and verses where the word “GOD” is found total 121999 or 19 x 6421

Rashad Khalifa:

  • How this Mathematical Miracle of the Quran was discovered?
  • When I came to this country – the United States, in nineteen sixty-eight (1968) – I read the English translations of the Quran. And I did not like any of them. I read them all; Yusuf ‘Ali, Muhammad ‘Ali, Pickthall, Arberry, N. J. Dawood, and so on – all of them. Even as far back as George Sale’s translation.
  • Some of them actually distorted the basic doctrines of the Quran, and that was serious enough to encourage me to translate the Quran myself; for my own children. I did it for local consumption.
  • However, since I am a scientist and not a professional religionist, I decided not move from one verse to the next  unless I knew exactly what every word and every verse meant. I made a pledge to God that I will not move from one verse to the next unless I know exactly what it meant.
  • So I started the translation, and I finished the first (1) sura; al-fateha, in seven days. Then I moved on to the next verse; the first verse of sura number two (2:1); al-baqara. And I found that it consisted of only three letters; (الم), A L M.
  • Of course I knew this all along since I was a young child, but now I am trying to translate it, I wanted to know exactly what the significance of A L M, is. I looked up all the tafseers; interpretations, and all the books written about these letters. And everybody; all the scholars said: “we do not know what these letters mean”.
  • So I started my own research, and after many attempts, and many failures, I decided to put the whole Quran into the computer. I did not know what to look for. So I had a computer count every letter in every sura. And the objective was to look for any mathematical connections, or any mathematical pattern between – that involves these letters.
  • There are twenty-nine (29) suras in the Quran prefixed with these initials, different sets of initials. Fourteen sets of initials to be exact: ALEF LAM MEEM, NOON, SAAD, QAAF, TA SEEN MEEM, YA SIN, TA HA, and so on. Fourteen of them.
  • And sure enough after four (4) years of research, a mathematical pattern emerged with a common denominator; binding all these initials without a single exception. And the common
    denominator was nineteen (19).
  • As it turned out, and as you will see in this program, every element of the Quran; the number of verses, the numbers assigned to the suras, the numbers of words, the letters – every letter of the Quran is mathematically composed beyond human capability. And the common
    denominator that binds all these mathematical; physical facts, is the number nineteen (19).
  • So let us get down to business and look at the Quran itself. And I would like to remind you that all the items you are going to see are factual observations, they are all physical facts, in the Quran.

The Miracle of the Basmalah; the Opening Statement

  • So here is a big Quran we can see together. And the first item of this miracle is that the first verse in the Quran: “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem”, consists of nineteen (19) Arabic letters. (Rashad counts while visually pointing at each letter in the first verse of the Quran).
  • Nineteen letters.
I alternated between red and black for each letter. And I also added a blue dot above each letter. This should make possible to understand even if you have never seen Arabic before.

The Miracle of 114 Chapters

  • And the whole Quran has hundred and fourteen suras (114 chapters). As we see here, the last sura is number one hundred and fourteen (114).
  • And one hundred and fourteen is a multiple of nineteen; nineteen times six (19 x 6).
  • And it consists of six verses, by the way.
  • So nineteen times six (19 x 6) gives us the total number of suras in the Quran, hundred and fourteen (114).

The Miracle of the First Revelation

  • Now, if we count from this sura towards the other suras. (Rashad counts backwards from the last chapter to the chapters before it, and so on).
  1. This is one. (Chapter 114)
  2. Two. (Chapter 113)
  3. Three. (Chapter 112)
  4. Four. (Chapter 111)
  5. Five. (Chapter 110)
  6. Six. (Chapter 109)
  7. Seven. (Chapter 108)
  8. Eight. (Chapter 107)
  9. Nine. (Chapter 106)
  10. Ten. (Chapter 105)
  11. Eleven. (Chapter 104)
  12. Twelve. (Chapter 103)
  13. Thirteen. (Chapter 102)
  14. Fourteen. (Chapter 101)
  15. Fifteen. (Chapter 100)
  16. Sixteen. (Chapter 99)
  17. Seventeen. (Chapter 98)
  18. Eighteen. (Chapter 97)
  19. And nineteen. (Chapter 96)
  • We find that number nineteen (19:th count) – sura number ninety-six (96), and it says: “iqra bi ism rabbika al lazee khalaq”, the first revelation. (“Read, in the name of your Lord, who created” – 96:1).
  • So the first sura revealed is positioned in the Quran atop the last nineteen (19) suras in the Quran. You also noticed that this sura consists of nineteen (19) verses.

The First Revelation was Exactly 19 Words

  • The first revelation was nineteen words exactly, here they are: (Rashad counts while visually pointing at each word that were part of the first revelation).
  • This was the first revelation through the prophet Muhammad, and it consisted of nineteen (19) words.

The First Revelation is Exactly 76 Letters

  • If you count the letters in these nineteen words, you find that the total is seventy-six (76), nineteen times four (19 x 4).

The First Chapter Revealed (Chapter 96) has Exactly 19 Verses

  • And if you count the letters in the whole sura, the first sura revealed, you find that the total is two hundred and eighty-five (285) letters, or nineteen times fifteen (19 x 15). (The updated count is 304 letters, 19 x 16).

The Miracle of the Last Revelation

  • The last sura revealed was sura number hundred and ten (110). And it consists also of nineteen (19) words, here they are: (Rashad counts while visually pointing at each word that are part of the last revelation).
  • So the last revelation and the first revelation consisted of nineteen (19) words (each).

The Miracle of the Basmalah and Its Details

  • Now if we go back to the very beginning, the first verse in the Quran. As you heard before, the first verse of the Quran; “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem”, consists of nineteen (19) letters.
  • Every word – there are four (4) words here – and every word is mentioned in the Quran a number of times which is consistently a multiple of nineteen (19).

The First Word “ism”

  • The word “ism”, which means “name”, is mentioned in the Quran nineteen (19) times exactly.

The Peculiar Spelling of the Word “bism”

  • If you wish to use the word “bism”, it is mentioned three (3) times, but if you add the numbers assigned to the verses and suras where the three (3) times of “bism” occur, the total is hundred and fourteen (114); nineteen times six (19 x 6). (Bism means “in the name…”).

The Second Word “allah”

  • The second word, “allah”, is mentioned in the whole book; two thousand six hundred ninety-eight times (2698), or nineteen times hundred and forty-two (19 x 142). (Allah means God).

The Third Word “al-rahman”

  • The third word “al-rahman”, is mentioned in the whole Quran; fifty-seven times (57), or nineteen times three (19 x 3).

The Fourth Word “al-raheem”

  • The last word, “al-raheem”, is mentioned in the whole book; hundred and fourteen times (114), or nineteen times six (19 x 6).
  • As you see, “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem”, the first verse in the Quran is very important. And you will see it at the beginning of every sura in the Quran. Every sura has “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem” in the beginning, except one (1).
  • However, only the first verse of the first sura is numbered – has number one (1:1). When you go to the other suras, you find that this opening statement has no number. This is why we take only the first (1:1) opening statement to represent all the basmalahs in the Quran, all the opening statements in the Quran.
  • If you go to sura nine (9) you will notice that this sura does not have a basmallah (opening statement). It says here: “This sura does not have bismillah” (points at the subtitle of chapter 9).

(Not all versions of the Quran have sub-titles, it is not part of the Quran, however, some printers choose to include them while other printers choose not to).

The Miracle of the Missing Basmalah

  • Now, since the Quran has hundred and fourteen suras (114), and this one does not have an opening statement. This will mean that we have only hundred and thirteen (113) basmalahs in the Quran, and this number is not divisible by nineteen (19 x 5,947368421052632).
  • But we find that this missing bismallah is made up in sura number twenty-seven (27).
  • So if you go to sura number twenty-seven (27). You will see that we have two (2) bismillahs. This is sura number twenty-seven (27). And there is one “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem” at the beginning, like every other sura except sura nine (9). And there is an extra one in the middle of the sura, right here, in verse thirty (30) you see another “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem”.
  • So this sura contains two (2) of them, two of the opening statement; or basmallahs. One in the beginning and one in verse thirty (30). And this restores the number – of this important opening statement – to hundred and fourteen (114), or nineteen times six (19 x 6).

From Chapter 9 to Chapter 27 is Exactly 19 Chapters

  • Also, if you count the suras from the missing bismallah of sura nine (9). There is the missing bismillah of sura nine (points at the subtitle of sura nine). And then we count the suras from here to the place where we find the extra bismillah:
  1. This is one. (Chapter 9)
  2. Two suras. (Chapter 10)
  3. Three suras. (Chapter 11)
  4. Four. (Chapter 12)
  5. Five. (Chapter 13)
  6. Six. (Chapter 14)
  7. We are counting from the missing bismillah to the extra bismillah. This should be seven. (Chapter 15)
  8. Eight. (Chapter 16)
  9. Nine. (Chapter 17)
  10. Ten. (Chapter 18)
  11. Eleven. (Chapter 19)
  12. Twelve. (Chapter 20)
  13. Thirteen. (Chapter 21)
  14. Fourteen. (Chapter 22)
  15. Fifteen. (Chapter 23)
  16. Sixteen. (Chapter 24)
  17. And seventeen, we did not get to sura twenty-seven (27) yet, this is twenty-five (25). Which is the seventeenth (17th) sura from the missing bismillah. (Chapter 25)
  18. Here is eighteen. (Chapter 26)
  19. And you will find that the sura that has two (2) bismillahs, sura number twenty-seven (27), is sura number nineteen (19:th sura count). (Chapter 27)
  • From the missing bismillah to the extra bismillah – from sura nine (9) to sura twenty-seven (27), we find exactly nineteen (19) suras; inclusive.
  • This is the sura that has two (2) bismillahs, and it is sura number nineteen (19th sura) after the missing bismillah of sura nine (9).
  • From the missing bismillah in sura nine (9), to the extra bismillah in sura twenty-seven (27), there are nineteen (19) suras.
  • So when you count the suras from missing “Bism Allah Arrahman Arraheem” of sura nine (9). To the extra bismallah in sura twenty-seven (27), you find nineteen (19) suras.

These 19 Chapters Add up to 342; Which is Divisible by 19

  • Now, watch this; if you add the numbers of the suras; the numbers assigned to the suras, from nine (9) to twenty-seven (27), from the missing bismillah to the extra bismillah, that is: Nine, plus ten, plus eleven, plus twelve, plus thirteen … all the way to plus twenty-six, plus twenty-seven. The total is three hundred and forty-two (342), which is a multiple of nineteen (19), it is nineteen times eighteen (19 x 18).

((9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17+18+19+20+21+22+23+24+25+26+27) = 342)

There Are Exactly 342 Words Between the Two Basmalahs in Chapter 27

  • And this is half the story. You add the numbers of suras from the missing bismillah to the extra bismillah, nine plus ten, plus… all the way to twenty-seven, the total: three hundred forty-two (342) is exactly the number of words between the two bismillahs of sura twenty-seven (27), the number of words, as you see here.
  • This total; three hundred forty-two (342) is exactly the number of words between this bismillah in sura twenty-seven (27:0), and the second bismillah of sura twenty-seven (27:30). You count these words, all these words, and you will find that the total up to this word here before the second bismillah, up to this word the total is three hundred and forty two (342). Which equals the total of the numbers of suras from the missing bismillah to this extra bismillah.

The Miracle of the Total Count of Verses

  • The number of verses; ayat, in the Quran, from the beginning, from the first aya, or verse. To the very end, to the last aya, is six thousand three hundred and forty-six (6346), which is a multiple of nineteen (19), the total number of ayat, verses in the Quran; six thousand three hundred and forty six, or nineteen times three hundred thirty-four (19 x 334).

[6234 numbered verses & 112 un-numbered verses (Basmalahs) 6234+112 = 6346] Note that 6+3+4+6=19

Appendix 1 (from: Quran The Final Testament, by Rashad Khalifa, PhD.)

The Miracles Within the Initialed Section

  • As I mentioned before, there are twenty nine (29) suras in Quran that are initialed with these Quranic initials.
  • And the first initial in the Quran is in sura number two, the first verse; ALEF, LAM, MEEM (2:1).
  • The last initial, is the initial NOON, in sura number sixty-eight, which is right here (68:1).
  • This here is the first initial (Rashad points at 2:1).
  • And this is the last initial (Rashad points at 68:1).

This Initialed Section Has 5263 Verses; Which Is Divisible by 19

  • The number of ayat; or verses, in this section here; from the first initial to the last initial, is five thousand two hundred and sixty-three (5263) ayat; or verses, nineteen times two hundred and seventy-seven (19 x 277).
  • You just start at ALEF, LAM, MEEM, the first Quranic initials. And you count all the verses in here, up to this verse in sura sixty-eight (68:1), and you will find that the total is five thousand two hundred and sixty-three (5263), or nineteen times two hundred and seventy-seven (19 x 277).

Within This Initialed Section, the Word “Allah”, Occurs 2641 Times; Which Is Divisible by 19

  • Also, if you count the word “allah” in this section, between the first initial and the last initial, you will find that the total of the word “allah” here; is two thousand six hundred and forty-one (2641), which is a multiple of nineteen (19), nineteen times one hundred thirty-nine (19 x 139).

Outside This Initialed Section, the Word “Allah”, Occurs 57 Times, Which Is Divisible by 19

  • And of course if you count the word “allah” outside of this section, that will be here, and before ALEM, LAM, MEEM. The word “allah” is found fifty-seven times (57), nineteen times three (19 x 3).

The Initialed Section Has 38 Un-Initialed Chapters; This Is Divisible by 19

  • In the section from the first initial; ALEF, LAM, MEEM, to the last initial; NOON, there are exactly thirty-eight (38) suras without initials.
  • The un-initialed suras here are thirty-eight (38), which is a multiple of nineteen (19), nineteen times two (19 x 2). So this is another physical fact.

The Chapter and Verse Numbers Where The Word “Allah” Occurs Outside of This Initialed Section; Add up to 2432; Which Is Divisible by 19 (Table 18)

  • Now, I mentioned that outside of this section (before chapter 2 and after chapter 68), there are fifty-seven (57) word “allah”, that are outside the initialed section of the Quran. This part (points at chapter 1), and this part (points at chapter 69), to the end – there are fifty-seven (57) words “allah”.
  • If you add the numbers of the suras – the numbers assigned to the suras, like this number here (points at chapter 69), and the numbers assigned to the verses. The total is two thousand four hundred thirty-two (2432), or nineteen times one hundred twenty-eight (19 x 128).
  • Now I am talking about the numbers assigned to the suras and verses, where you find the word “allah” outside of the initialed section (before 2 and after 68. Or chapter 1 + chapter 69 to 114).
  • You add these numbers assigned to the suras and the verses wherever you find the word “allah”, and the total is multiple of nineteen (19). Well, this proves that the numbers assigned to the suras and the numbers assigned to the verses are from God, not from humans.

(This proves that the location of every chapter and every verse were all planned by God, that they are not random).

The Miracle of The Word “al-quran”

  • The word “al-quran”, is mentioned in the Quran; fifty-seven times (57), that is nineteen times three (19 x 3). Is that not profound?

If You Take the Chapter and Verse Numbers Where “Al-Quran” Is Mentioned, and Add Them Up, You Get 2660; Which Is Divisible by 19

  • And if you add the numbers of the suras, and the numbers of verses where there word “al-quran” is found – the total is two thousand six hundred and sixty (2660), which is nineteen times hundred and forty (19 x 140). I am talking about the number – for example this word here “al-quran”, is in sura seventeen (17), and the verse number is forty-five (45), as you see here.
  • You take these numbers, the fifty-seven (57) times where the word “al-quran” is found in the Quran, and you add the numbers of the verses and the numbers of the suras, all together; the total is two thousand six hundred and sixty (2660), or nineteen times one hundred and forty (19 x 140).

Different Grammatical Forms of “Al-Quran” Will Add up to 3363; Which Is Divisible by 19

  • There are other grammatical forms of this word “al-quran”, like “quranan”, “al-quranaho” – and if you add all the suras and all the verses, the numbers of the verses and the numbers of the suras where these forms – different forms of the word “al-quran” is found – the grand total is three thousand three hundred and sixty-three (3363), or nineteen times one hundred and seventy-seven (19 x 177). Of course the word “quran” is very special, and this is why it is so intricately composed within the Quran.

The Miracle of the First Commandment

  • The first pillar of Islam, mainly that God is one – is mentioned in the Quran exactly nineteen (19) times. That “allah wahd”; God is one – is mentioned in the Quran exactly nineteen (19) times.

Worshiping GOD Alone Is Emphasized as 19×19

  • Now, there is also the word “wahdahu”; worship God alone. This commandment to worship God alone – “wahdahu” – is mentioned in the Quran five times. And if you add the numbers of the verses and the numbers of suras, where the word “wahdahu”; worship God alone occurs, the total is three hundred and sixty-one (361), or nineteen times nineteen (19 x 19).
  • So this emphasizes the importance of worshiping God alone, the word “wahid”; referring to God as one, is mentioned in the Quran nineteen times, and the word “wahdahu”, is mentioned five times, but when you add the verses and suras – numbers – where this word “wahdahu” is found, the total is three sixty-one (361), nineteen times nineteen (19 x 19).
  • For example, this word “wahdahu”, happens in verse twelve of sura number forty (40:12). So you take this number; forty, and the number of the verse; twelve (40+12…), and you do this every time you see the word “wahdahu” in the Quran, and the total is three hundred and sixty-one (361), nineteen times nineteen (19 x 19).

The Miracle of the Religious Duties

  • The other four pillars of Islam; the salat (Contact Prayers), the zakat (Obligatory Charity), the hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca), al-siyaam (Fasting during Ramadan) – are mentioned in the Quran hundred and fourteen (114) times, or nineteen times six (19 x 6).

The Chapters and Verses Where the Contact Prayers Are Mentioned Add up to 4674; 19×246

  • When you take the word “salat” for example, which happens in the Quran sixty-seven times (67). And you take the numbers of verses, and the numbers of the suras, where every time you see this word “salat”, and you add them up, the total is a multiple of nineteen (19), it is four thousand six hundred seventy-four (4674), or nineteen times two hundred and forty-six (19 x 246). The word “salat”, throughout the Quran, you add the numbers of the verses and the numbers of suras where the word “salat” occurs, and the total is four thousand six hundred seventy-four (4674), or nineteen times two hundred and forty-six (19 x 246).

The Chapters and Verses Where Zakat and Hajj Are Mentioned Add up to 2888; 19x19x8

  • If you go to the word “zakat”, you find that “zakat” and “hajj” – you add the numbers of the verses and the numbers of the suras where the words “salat” and “hajj” are found – and the total is two thousand eight hundred and eighty-eight (2888), or nineteen times nineteen times eight (19 x 19 x 8 (or 19 x 152)). This is “zakat” and “hajj” together. You add the numbers of the verses and the numbers of the suras, throughout the Quran where you see “zakat” and “hajj”.

The Chapters and Verses Where Fasting Is Mentioned Add up to 1387; 19×73

  • When you look at the word “siyaam” in the Quran, the whole Quran, the fasting of Ramadan, you will see that it occurs six (6) times. And if you add the numbers of the verses to the numbers of the suras, every time you see this word “siyaam” in all its forms, the total is one thousand three hundred eighty-seven (1387), or nineteen times seventy-three (19 x 73).
  • So the basic pillars of Islam, the numbers assigned to the suras and verses where these words are found, all these numbers are multiplies of nineteen (19).

The Miracles of the Quranic Initials

  • The sura entitled “QAAF”, is also initialed with the letter “qaaf”, and when you count this letter “qaaf”, every time you see it you count it, in the Quran; in this sura. You will find that the total of the letter “qaaf” in this sura is fifty-seven (57), or nineteen times three (19 x 3).

Only Two Chapters Have the Initial QAAF, They Both Have 57 QAAFs, 19×3

  • Also, the only other sura initialed with “qaaf, which is sura number forty-two (42). There is the letter “qaaf”; as an initial (Rashad points at 42:1 with a pen). Contains the exact same number of “qaafs” as the other sura. So you count this “qaaf” and then you go and find this “qaaf”, and count it and so on. This is a physical fact – the total occurrence of the letter “qaaf” in this “qaaf” initialed sura is also fifty seven (57), nineteen times three (19 x 3).
  • Now, when you go back to sura “QAAF”, here, you notice that “qaaf” simply stands for Quran. “Q” stands for Quran; “qaaf” here stands for Quran. And if you add the fifty-seven (57) “qaafs”, “Q”, of this sura number fifty (50). Plus the fifty-seven (57) “qaafs”, or “Q”, in sura number forty-two (42); also fifty-seven (57). Fifty-seven plus fifty-seven is hundred and fourteen (57 + 57 = 114). Which is exactly the same number as the suras of the Quran. Fifty-seven plus fifty-seven equal one hundred and fourteen (57 + 57 = 114), the number of suras in Quran.

Chapter 50 Is Initialed with QAAF and Has 45 Verses, These Two Numbers Add up to 95; 19×5

  • You noticed that the sura “QAAF”, is number fifty (50), and it consists of forty-five (45) verses. If you add the number of the sura, which is fifty (50), to the number of verses in the sura, which is forty-five (45), the total is ninety-five (95), or nineteen times five (19 x 5).

Chapter 42 Is Also Initialed with QAAF and Has 53 Verses, These Two Numbers Add up to 95; 19×5

  • Well this is half the story. If you go to the only other sura initialed with “qaaf”, which is sura number forty-two (42). You see that the number of verses is fifty-three (53). And if you add the number of the sura to the number of the verses, you get exactly the same total as sura “QAAF”; which is ninety-five (95). Forty-two plus fifty-three is ninety five (42 + 53 = 95), or nineteen times five (19 x 5).
  • And with sura “QAAF”, fifty (50), the number of the sura, plus the number of verses; forty-five (45), fifty plus forty-five is ninety-five (50 + 45 = 95), or nineteen times five (19 x 5).
  • In this sura, the Quran is described as majeed, “qaaf; wa al quran al majeed” (Q., and the glorious Quran – 50:1).

The Quran Is Described as Glorious, This Word Has the Numerical Value of 57; 19×3

  • And this word “majeed” has its numerical value is fifty-seven (57), which is the number of the letter “qaaf” in this sura.
  • Majeed (مَجيدِ):
  • The M is forty (40),
  • The jeem is three (3),
  • The yaa is ten (10),
  • And the daal is four (4).
  • And you add these numbers, forty plus three plus ten plus four, the total is fifty-seven (40 + 3 + 10 + 4 = 57), nineteen times three (19 x 3).
  • When the Quran was revealed there were no numbers, these letters were used as numbers. So you can look at the “meem” as the letter “meem”; or M – and also as the numeral forty. The same with the other letters. So this is a universal established system, where the alphabet letters are used as numbers. (This system was used before the invention of Arabic Numerals).

Chapter 68 Is Initialed with the Letter NOON, This Letter Occurs 133 Times; 19×7

  • When you go to sura sixty-eight (68), which is initialed with the letter “noon”; “N”. If you count the letter “N”, where ever you see it in this sura. You will find that the total is one hundred and thirty-three (133), nineteen times seven (19 x 7).

Three Chapters Are Initialed with the Letter SAAD, Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 152; 19×8

  • In the Quran, there are three (3) suras initialed with the letter “saad”. The first one is sura number seven (7). It is initialed with the letter “alef”, “laam”, “meem”, “saad”. (المص)
  • The second sura that is initialed with this letter, is sura number nineteen (19), sura Maryam. Which has five initials, “qaaf”, “haa”, “yaa”, “ayn”, “saad”. So this is the second sura where we see the letter “saad” as an initial. (كهيعص)
  • The third sura initialed with this letter is sura number thirty-eight (38). Which is also entitled “SAAD”. The name of the the sura is “SAAD”, and the initial is “saad”. (ص)
  • So these are three suras initialed with the letter “saad”, and when you count the letter “saad” in the three suras (7, 19 , 38), the total comes to hundred and fifty-two (152), or nineteen times eight (19 x 8).

Chapter 36 Is Initialed with YAA & SEEN, These Letters Total 285; 19×15

  • There is one sura in the Quran initialed with the letters “yaa”, “seen” – two letters, “yaa” and “seen”,  it is sura thirty-six (36). Here the first verse is the two letters “yaa” and “seen”. And if you count these two letters “yaa” and “seen”, in the whole sura, the total is two hundred and eighty-five (285), or nineteen times fifteen (19 x 15).
  • So you see that consistently the suras contain a number of their initials that is consistently a multiple of nineteen (19).

Seven Chapters Are Initialed with HAA & MEEM, Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 2147; 19×113

  • There are seven suras initialed with the letters “haa” and “meem”. Seven (7) consequent suras, beginning at sura number forty (40). So here is number forty (40), initialed with the letters “haa”, “meem”. The whole verse consists of just two (2) letters “haa”, “meem”. Seven (7) consequent suras. This is the last one, sura number forty-six (46), it is initialed with the letters; “haa”, “meem”. And you count these distinctive unique letters; “haa” and “meem”, in the seven suras (40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46), and you will find that total is two thousand one hundred and forty-seven (2147), the total of “haa” plus “meem” in the seven suras, this is nineteen times hundred and thirteen (19 x 113).
  • Two thousand one hundred and forty-seven (2147). This means that if only one letter “haa” or one letter “meem” was lost or added – in the last fourteen hundred (1400) years – the whole mathematical system collapses. But as it is, you count them right now in any Quran anywhere in the world, and you find that “haa” and “meem” in the seven (7) “haa”, “meem” initialed suras, totals two thousand one hundred forty-seven (2147), or nineteen times one hundred and thirteen (19 x 113).

Chapter 42 Has Two Sets of Initials, Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 209; 19×11

  • Sura number forty-two (42) has two sets of initials. As you have just seen, it has the initials “haa”, “meem” in verse one (42:1), and verse two (42:2) of this sura has the initials “ayn”, “seen”, “qaaf”, three letters; “ayn”, “seen”, and “qaaf”. And if you count these three distinct letters in this sura, “ayn” plus “seen” plus “qaaf”, the total is two hundred and nine (209), or nineteen times eleven (19 x 11).

Chapter 19 Has the Most Initials, KAAF, HAA, YAA, AYN & SAAD. Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 798; 19×42

  • Sura number nineteen (19) has the largest – or the biggest set of initials. It has five (5) letters, this is sura number nineteen (19), and it is initialed with five (5) letters; “kaaf”, “haa”, “yaa”, “ayn”, “saad”. And you add, you count these letters in this sura, the five (5) letters total seven hundred ninety-eight (798), or nineteen times forty-two (19 x 42).

Chapters Are Also Interlocked with Multiple Chapters Through Different Initials, This Intricacy Is Beyond Probability, It Should Be Impossible, yet We Can See This Physically Right in Front of Us

  • Now I wish to remind you that the letter “saad” for example, interacts, or it is interlocking with the other “saad” initialed suras. Sura number seven (7), and sura number thirty-eight (38) – you remember that this letter; “saad” in the three (3) “saad” initialed suras, is one hundred and fifty-two (152), or nineteen times eight (19 x 8). But it also is intricately intertwined with these letters in this sura (chapter 19) to give us a total of seven hundred ninety-eight (798), or nineteen times forty two (19 x 42). So you can see that this mathematical system is far beyond human capability.

(This Mathematical Miracle of the Quran is truly the ultimate evidence for the existence of God. It is so perfectly obvious that any scientist who rejects it should no longer be considered a scientist. Because the whole purpose of being a scientist is to follow the evidence no matter where it takes you).

Six Chapters Are Initialed with ALEF, LAAM & MEEM, and Each Chapter Has a Count of These Letters That Is Divisible by 19

  • There are six (6) suras in the Quran initialed with these letters; “alef”, “laam”, “meem”; “A”, “L”, “M”. These are suras number two, three, twenty-nine, thirty, thirty-one, and thirty-two. (2, 3, 29, 30, 31, 32)
  • This (Rashad points at a chapter in the Quran he is holding) happens to be sura thirty-two (32). And every single one of the six (6) suras contains a total of these letters which is multiple of nineteen (19), every one.
  • For example, sura number two (2) contains nine thousand eight hundred and ninety-nine (9899) of these letters, and that is a multiple of nineteen (19), nineteen times five twenty-one (19 x 551).
  • Sura number three (3) also contains a multiple of nineteen, of these letters; “alef”, “laam”, “meem” – and so on. Every one of the six (6) suras contains a total of “alef” plus “laam” plus “meem” which is a multiple of nineteen.

(Chapter 2, chapter 3, chapter 29, chapter 30, chapter 31, chapter 32)

Five Chapters Are Initialed with ALEF, LAAM & RAA, and Each Chapter Has a Count of These Letters That Is Divisible by 19

  • There are five suras in the Quran initialed with these three letters; “alef”, “laam”, “raa”; “A”, “L”, “R”. And every single one of the five suras (10, 11, 12, 14, 15) contains a total of “alef” plus “laam” plus “raa”, which is a multiple of nineteen (19), every one.

(Chapter 10, chapter 11, chapter 12, chapter 14, chapter 15)

Chapter 7 Is Initialed with ALEF, LAAM, MEEM & SAAD. Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 5320; 19×280

  • Sura number seven (7) is initialed with the four letters; “alef”, “laam”, “meem” , “saad”, as you see here (Rashad points at 7:1). And when you count these letters, “alef” plus “laam” plus “meem” plus “saad”, in this sura, the total comes to five thousand three hundred and twenty (5320), which is nineteen times two hundred and eighty (19 x 280).
  • And again, I wish to remind you that this letter “saad” interlocks between this sura, and the other “saad” initialed suras; sura number nineteen (19) and sura number thirty-eight (38).
  • And every time within the sura and also within its sister suras, where the letter “saad is found, the totals are consistently a multiple of nineteen (19).

(Remember that if a single letter was lost or added, in the last 1400 years, then this system would collapse. This proves that the Quran is divinely preserved).

Chapter 13 Is Initialed with ALEF, LAAM, MEEM & RAA. Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 1482; 19×78

  • Sura number thirteen (13), is initialed with letters “alef”, “laam”, “meem”, “raa”. Four (4) initials; “alef”, “laam”, “meem”, “raa”. When you count these letters, “alef” plus “laam” plus “meem” plus “raa”, in this sura, you find that the total is one thousand four hundred and eighty-two (1482), nineteen times seventy-eight (19 x 78).

Five Chapters Are Initialed with HAA, Adding up All Their Occurrences Totals 1767; 19×93

  • There are five suras (19, 20, 26, 27, 28) in the Quran initialed with the letters “haa”, as we see in sura nineteen (19) here. There is the letter “haa”, one of the five (5) initials of sura nineteen (19).
  • And then in sura “TAA”, “HAA” (20), there it is. “taa”, “haa.
  • And the initials “taa”, “seen”, “meem” in sura number twenty-six (26), right here, “taa”, “seen”, “meem.
  • And in sura twenty-seven (27), it is the initial “taa”, “seen”, right here.
  • And “taa”, “seen”, “meem” in sura number twenty-eight (28), “taa”, “seen”, “meem”.
  • You count these letters, in the five suras (1920262728), and you find that the total is one thousand seven hundred and sixty-seven (1767), or nineteen times ninety-three (19 x 93).

List of All the Initials

Quran Has Hinted at This Mathematical Miracle for ~1400 Years, but Nobody Figured It out Until Modern Times Through the Messenger Rashad Khalifa

Why 19?

  • People keep asking: “Why nineteen?”
  • Why did God choose the number nineteen (19) as the common denominator throughout the Quran, to prove every element of the Quran; the number of verses, the number of suras, the number of words from a certain root, the number of letters, the initials; as you have seen.

19 Is Mentioned by Name

  • And we find the number nineteen (19) in the Quran in sura seventy-four verse number thirty (74:30), we find the number nineteen (19). And we find it connected with the proof that the Quran is not human made.

GOD Gives Us an Exact Answer in Chapter 74:31

  • Some people say the Quran is human made, “in haazaaa illaa qawlul bashar”, as it says in sura number seventy-four verse twenty-five (74:25). And God says the answer to these people is the number nineteen (19), as we see in verse thirty of sura seventy four (74:30).

19 Is GOD’s Signature, for Example the Human Body Has 209 Bones, This Is 19×11

  • Now, why nineteen? It turns out that nineteen (19) is God’s signature on everything He created. As to the answer to the question: “Why nineteen?”, we discover that nineteen (19) is the basic message of the Quran.

The Word ONE Has the Numerical Value of 19

  • Because nineteen is the numerical value of the Arabic word one (1). So the whole message of the Quran is: God alone; God is one; worship God alone. And nineteen (19) is the numerical value of the word; “wahed”, in Arabic (wahed means one).
  • When the Quran was revealed there were no numbers. The alphabet letters were used as numbers. And the letter “waw” also served as the numeral six, the letter “alef” was one, the letter “haa” was eight, and the letter “daal” was four.
  • wahed; six plus one plus eight plus four, the total is nineteen (6 + 1 + 8 + 4 = 19). And this is why nineteen is the common denominator throughout the Quran, proving every aspect, every element of the Quran.

Peace,

I hope this has been useful for you and that this has helped you understand the amazing Mathematical Miracle of the Quran. I tried to format the text to be as clear and helpful as possible without interfering with the transcript of the video. Just a reminder; this transcript is not full verbatim, I have removed repetitive sentences, and I have reconstructed certain sentences that end abruptly where Rashad rephrases himself before finishing the previous sentence, this is common in speech but not text. I have also corrected errors, such as when Rashad says “MEEM has the numerical value of 30”, but it is actually 40.

I decided to write the whole video into a text format for those of us who prefer to read instead of watching hour long videos. It makes it easier to understand what is being said without having to go back and forth whenever the video goes too fast. This is especially true if English isn’t your first language, or if your English skill is low. So I really do hope this has been useful to you.

Another benefit is that I can include links to other material for further research, so that the reader doesn’t have to spend a lot of time searching the Internet and all kinds of websites just to find specific information. Instead it will be available at the click of a button. This is especially true for this video, because there are so many claims being made, so the viewer is encouraged to pause the video and verify the information. I have included links to make this process a bit easier.

Evolution or Creation: The Final Argument by Rashad Khalifa – Transcript

(This transcript is not true verbatim, I have removed repetitive sentences, and I have reconstructed certain sentences that end abruptly where Rashad rephrases himself before finishing the previous sentence, this is common in speech but not text. – Ahmad Wehbe).

Video Intro:

  • Evolution or Creation
  • The Final Argument
  • Your host – Rashad Khalifa, PhD
  • Produced and Photographed by Kathleen Clarke
  • Dr. Khalifa has a PhD in Plant Biochemistry from University of California, Riverside [1964].
  • He has published 5 books and 23 scientific papers in Science, Analytical Biochemistry, and other outstanding journals.
  • Currently (As of recording this video), he is on the roster of science advisors for the United Nations Industrial development Organization.

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Every one of you is aware of the spirited debate, that has been raging for decades, between evolutionists and creationists. This hot debate began in the mid-nineteenth century; about hundred and twenty-five (125) years ago, when Charles Darwin developed his theory of gradual evolution.
  • Basically, what Charles Darwin said was that life began spontaneously from inanimate inorganic matter. This beginning of life was supposedly in water, and a single simple cell first formed. Then this cell split and multiplied, and evolved into new forms of life. With the passage of millions upon millions of years, fish came into existence in this water. And with additional of millions upon millions of years, some of the fish started to walk on land, and started to develop lungs instead of gills. Eventually, again, additional millions and millions of years was required for some of these land creatures to develop wings and the ability to fly. Another branch of these land animals continued to develop and evolve all the way to human beings.
  • Of course, as scientists, we took this theory of Charles Darwin and we scrutinized it, we put it to the test, like any other theory. Darwin used terms like; natural-selection, mutations, survival of the fittest, to explain his theory. Now during the last one hundred (100) years of scientific revolution, we learned quite a few things. Many of the things that you and I learned as youngsters, have been found to be wrong, or at best; trivialized.
  • So we took this theory of evolution and we studied it carefully. We started to look for the evidence, we treated it as any other theory, trying to prove it and turn it into a law. So, in the process of studying the theory and collecting evidence; fossils, skeletal remnants and so on. And the other scientists combined to teach us that parts of the original theory of Darwin were unworkable or scientifically wrong, just down right wrong. And this lead to the modification of Darwin’s theory.
  • As scientists we had to modify the original theory of evolution as written by Charles Darwin, in order to pick the new established facts. Let me give you a couple of examples. Gradual evolution proved to be wrong, our fossil record does not support gradual evolution. You heard about the missing link, every one of you knows about the missing link. And I am here to tell you there is no just a missing link, there are thousands of missing links. And to solve this problem, the scientists came up with a new theory called; punctuated equilibrium. Stephen Gould of Harvard and Niles Eldredge came up with this idea, punctuated equilibrium to solve the problem of the missing links. What they said was that evolution happened in giant leaps not gradually. So this was the first major modification of the original theory of evolution.
  • Another idea for example that we had to abandon was Lamarck’s concept of inherited – let me give you the correct expression here; the transmission of acquired characteristics. This concept of Lamarck had to be abandoned because it proved to be unworkable. And to give you an example from everyday life, Lamarck for example said that the giraffe has a long neck because most animals had to reach for high leaves, and they lived in an area where they needed the long neck. Well this was proven unworkable, and scientifically untenable (cannot be defended), and it was eventually abandoned. So we kept adjusting and modifying the theory of evolution.
  • What I wish to share with you today, is a scientific examination of both evolution and creation. I will present to you physical evidence, irrefutable, incontrovertible evidence that will help you decide exactly what took place – evolution and or creation. The title of this program is evolution or creation, the final argument. And hopefully, by the end of this program, you will see enough evidence to help you make a final decision about evolution and creation. We will find out exactly what components of Darwin’s theory are correct, and which components are wrong. And I must point out at this time, that Darwin was a indeed a genius when he suggested natural selection, survival of the fittest and mutations to explain his theory. Let me give you an example. The navel orange, this beautiful fruit is a new creature, that’s right. Your great-grandfather never saw or tasted a navel orange. And this happened through mutation, all of a sudden this tree came out with this beautiful fruit; seedless and delicious. And of course now it is spread all over the world. We take it for granted. But this is a good example of evolution. However, I must point out that the navel orange evolved from oranges, in other words we will not see an apple evolve from oranges, or a fig. The navel orange is still an orange. And this is an important point.

  • The evolution or creation issue is before the supreme court this year, in 1987, so this program is quite timely, because right now we have a powerful scientific and objective tool. That can tell us exactly which events in the world are probable, and which events are not probable. This powerful objective and scientific tool is mathematics.
  • Mathematics is the most scientific of all sciences. It is a pure science. And through mathematics we can tell if a bridge or a building is going to collapse or not, under any given circumstances. So we can use this powerful tool to examine both evolution and creation. This is exactly what we are going to do together, and hopefully by the end of this program we; you and I, will reach a final decision. So the name; the final argument, is quite appropriate.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:08:59).


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:09:16).

  • Let me first simply the mathematical laws, the laws or probability that we will be using today to examine both evolution and creation. Let us say we have five cubes, each cube is labelled with only one number, either one, or two, or three, or four, or five (1,2,3,4,5). If we mix these five (5) cubes in a mixer, and have them fall down in some kind of a device so that they would be lined up in one line, or toss them up in the air and have them fall in such a way so they would be lined up.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:09:53).

  • What are the possible combinations of these five (5) cubes, how many permutations are we going to have? Well, the laws of mathematics are very simple, they tell you that you will get a hundred and twenty (120) combinations, and you obtain this by multiplying one by two by thee by four by five, (1x2x3x4x5), the product is hundred and twenty (120), so you will get hundred and twenty (120) combinations, or permutations. In other words, every combination – if they fall down lined up; one two three four five (1 2 3 4 5), in this particular combination, this combination has a chance out of hundred and twenty (120) chances. Let me show you on the board.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:10:47).

  • Here we are with the five cubes, each one labelled with only one number. You toss them up in the air and have them fall down so they appear lined up in this particular combination. What are the possible combinations, how many? Here we see the formula, the number of possible combinations or permutations is 1x2x3x4x5, or hundred and twenty (120) combinations.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:11:10).

  • The probability for any specific combination is obtained by dividing one (1) over hundred a twenty (120), because each combination has a chance out of hundred and twenty (120) chances. And one over a hundred and twenty (120) equal; zero point zero zero eight six (0.0086).


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:11:23).

  • This probability diminishes fast as we increase the number of cubes. For example, if we increase the number of cubes by one, so you have six cubes instead of five (5), the number of possible combinations jumps from hundred and twenty (120) to seven hundred and twenty (720). One times two times three times four times five times six (1x2x3x4x5x6). And the probability for any specific combination goes down from one out of hundred and twenty (120) to one out of seven hundred and twenty (720), or 0.0014. So you can see how fast it diminishes. Okay, when will the probability diminish all the way to zero? well mathematicians who are exceedingly precise conservative, and careful scientist – decided that if you have eighty-four (84) cubes, then the probability is zero; forgetting any specific combinations. What does that mean? let me get to the board and show you this. I have the number here for eighty-four (84) cubes. The probability – look at this, is zero point zero zero zero zero zero zero zero all the way, fifty zeros and then two one eight (0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000208).


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:12:44).

  • So, you can see here that the probability for all practical purposes is zero (0). And this by the way is extending the benefit of the doubt. What does this mean in practical terms. This means you can take these 84 cubes, toss them up in the air and have them fall in such a way that they line up, and if you want a specific combination of one two three four five six seven eight all the way up to eighty-four, if you want this specific combination, you can toss up these cubes and have them fall down lined up forever, and you will never see this combination, this is what probability zero means, you can appreciate that. Now many of you are familiar with the lottery, we know what our chances are of winning the lottery, and here in the lottery we are talking about five or six numbers. So you can really appreciate the improbability of having any four cubes lines up in a specific combination.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:14:06).

  • To make a long story short, the genetic material of the human being, the gene that decides what kind of creature we have. This genetic material contains – listen to this 30 billion nucleotides arranged in specific sequences and specific quantities. Now what are the probabilities of arranging these billions of nucleotides in specific sequence of course you know the answer from the mathematical laws, the probability is zero many times over. We are talking here about not eighty-four (84) numbers, or eighty-four hundred (8400) numbers, or eighty-four thousand (84000) numbers, or eighty-four million (84000000) numbers We are talking about thirty billion (30000000000) nucleotides.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:14:03).

  • You know, as scientists, we have been talking about similarities between the human being and the ape, as far as genetic material is concerned. And you know something, if you have ninety percent (90%) similarity, we are still talking about three hundred million (300000000) nucleotides that must be arranged in a specific sequence, as specific quantities to change the ape into a human being. Even if we have ninety-nine percent (99%) similarity, we are still talking about thirty million (30000000) nucleotides that must be haphazardly arranged in specific sequence in order to change the ape to a human being. And you know that the portability for this is zero, we have now these mathematical laws that can tell us exactly which event is probable, and which event is not probable. And we know that the probability, that thirty million nucleotides, in the case of 99 percent similarity between the human and the ape, we know this probability is zero, we are not talking about 84 numbers, we are talking about thirty billion nucleotides. Another thing, at the other end of the evolutional spectrum, we are talking about the so called simple cell. Remember when I stated Charles Darwin’s theory, Darwin said that; first a simple single cell was formed, well, the cell that Darwin is talking about is not simple at all. It’s a very complex chemical factory, it is in fact the most complex chemical factory we know of. It has hundreds of actions, and the actions go on in the cell. And it has the DNA material that are very complex, and just to quote something, that will make you smile at least. About 50 years ago, Wells (H. G. Wells), Huxley (Julian Huxley) and Wells (G. P. Wells), wrote in their text; The Science of Life – and I’m quoting now; “nothing can be seen inside the nucleus of the cell except the clear fluids”, end of quote.


(Source: The Science of Life, page 30).

  • Now, these both scientists knew nothing about DNA. In the last fifty years, there was so much advanced in science that we realize now how many actions and reactions are going on within the nucleus. We know about the DNA; the helical structure (the shape of DNA is not always helical). And we know the arrangement and the specificity of sequences of nucleotides. And we know now that haphazard creation of a simple cell – as Darwin called it – is not possible, the probability is zero.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:17:07).

  • According to Darwin, the evolution of organs parlement (nullify / obsolete) the evolution of the organisms. For example the eye, this very complex organ, started out, according to Darwin, as a light sensitive spot on the surface. After millions upon millions of years, this light sensitive spot became a depression. additional millions upon millions of years passed and the depression became a pit. And then million of years caused a lens to develop in that depression. Well according to this scenario, creatures existed for millions upon millions of years in total blindness, await the evolution of the 20/20 vision, the evolution of the eye. And this – of course to you and to me this logically does not make sense. And now we see by mathematical law that the probability is zero that this happened haphazardly. Do you know how many things are in the eye? the lens, the cornea, the retina, the – there is – I can give you a list, two pages of components of the eye, each one of them cannot be haphazardly ??born?? (speech unclear, please contact me if you know what is being said, thanks). We have now these laws of mathematics telling us that the probability is zero.

(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:19:54).


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:20:18).

  • Let me give you some examples. The dragonfly has thirty thousand (30000) lenses in each eye, thirty thousand of them. Now for millions of years the dragonfly existed with thirty thousand lenses in each eye. What kind of intelligence told the dragonfly to stop evolved at thirty thousand (lenses), imagine the little area of the small eye of the dragonfly divided into thirty thousand cones, and each cone is fitted with a perfectly shaped lens. Imagine that. Now why did the dragonfly stop at thirty thousand (30000), why not a couple hundred (100) more or a couple thousand (1000) more. Who told the dragonfly that this is enough evolution for your eye?







(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:20:36).

  • How about the housefly? four thousand (4000) lenses in each eye, the housefly has four thousand (4000) lenses in each eye. Now what kind of intelligence told the housefly to stop evolving the eye at four thousand (4000) lenses. For millions of years, the fly had four thousand (4000) lenses in each eye. Now who told it to stop evolving. Why not go on towards five thousand (5000) lenses. The honeybee has six thousand three hundred (6300) lenses in each eye, and again we face the same question. And if you pursue that question it will prove the existence of a super-intelligent being that told these organisms to stop evolving their eye at a certain number of lenses. So this is the irony of it.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:22:16).

  • So while evolution is proven to be correct by scientific research, the initiation life – or the origin of species is proven to be not probable; the probability is zero. And therefore it had to be created by a super-intelligent creator. And we will discuss this matter and see the mathematical evidence supporting it, before the end of this program.
  • Let us look at some established facts that you and I have witnessed in the last few years. The first fact is, that despite our tremendous scientific advances, these great achievements, not a single scientist, not a single researcher, not a single laboratory has succeed in initiating life from inorganic, inanimate matter. They utterly failed in duplicating Charles Darwin’s basic concept; that life evolved from inanimate inorganic matter.
  • What the scientists succeeded in doing was to synthesize amino acids and proteins from oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and so on. This is the extent of our success in the lab. We could not produce life. Now, of course it is natural that we can make amino acids or proteins from oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and so on – after all, these are the ingredients that make up amino acids and proteins. It is no big deal that you create the circumstances for the ingredients to link up together and make up these chemicals. But these are dead chemicals – dead molecules with amino acids and proteins. And some people would say; “these are the building blocks of life”, well that is right, these are the building blocks, but this is the extent of it, just that, building blocks. Now if you take a bunch of building blocks and put them in the corner and leave them there for thousands of years – will they assemble themselves into a building? with a deliberate design? of course not. So as scientists we succeeded in creating the building blocks, but we could not create the building. This is a very important fact.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:25:08).

  • The debate between evolutionists and creationists, was so hot and so emotional. That some of my fellow scientists gave up their scientific objectivity, and I find myself forced to criticize fellow scientists for behaving like unscientific creationists. Let me give you a good example; has to be with the booklet published by the National Academy of Sciences back in 1983. In that booklet they published a picture one of the favorite pictures, the skulls of a number of hominids. And they concluded from that picture, that the skull of the more advanced hominid evolved from the more primitive skull. That the advanced skull evolved from the primitive skull. Well this is a perfectly valid and scientific conclusion, there is no problem with that. But the problem is that the academy ignored an equally valid conclusion that these skulls, the animals that possessed these – or the creatures that possessed these skulls, simply existed independently – independent of each other without any relationship what so ever. Now scientific objectivity dictates that you present both views, that the skulls evolved from each other, and – or the skulls existed independently of each other.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:26:24).

  • This kind of abandoning scientific objectivity resulted from the high emotionalism and fanaticism on both sides of the evolution creation issue. But scientists should never abandon their objectivity, we would be in deep trouble if we abandon our objectivity. We cannot say evolution is a fact and it is up to the rest of the world to prove otherwise, this is putting the cart before the horse. When we say that this evolution business is a theory, the burden of proof is on us to provide the evidence that evolution is a fact. It is our duty to establish evolution as the truth, not the other way around.

  • To summarize; we all appreciate the power of mathematics as a pure science, the most scientific of all sciences. And we are all familiar with the simple formula of Einstein’s; E=mc^2, and we are familiar with the tremendous consequences of such a simple formula. Mathematics is an objective and powerful tool, that can tell is exactly what events in the world are probable, and what events are not probable.
  • We have been talking about DNA; the genes; thirty billion (30000000000) nucleotides in the human gene that interact with other life processes. We are not talking about a toy, you know when you go to the toy store and buy a bunny rabbit for example, it has ears and realistic eyes – but these eyes don’t see, and this toy rabbit  doesn’t have any sense, or DNA, or nucleotides that are arranged, or any life actions and reactions. We are assuming here that we are just talking about the simple arrangement of nucleotides in specific sequences and specific quantities, we are talking about just psychical arrangement. The probability is – this infinitesimally small probability is multiplied by other infinitesimally small probabilities when we interact the nucleotides, the DNA, with the other life processes in the cell and throughout the organism.
  • Now we can use the same powerful tool to prove the alternative – namely; creation. Now how in the world can anybody prove creation. Nobody could imagine anything that can prove creation. But you know something, about a hundred years ago we could not envision TV, or the telephone, or communication satellites, but here we are. If you can see your great grandfather today and describe the television to him, he would disagree with you, he would think you went crazy. So similarly we could not imagine anything that could prove or disprove creation. But how about a coded message from outer space. Did you ever think about that? a coded message from outer space, telling you; “I am the creator, and this is how I did it”. A message that will give you all the details. Many of you are familiar with Carl Sagan’s latest novel called “Contact”. In Contact he presented a fictitious story about a coded message from outer space, from some intelligent life out there, and the message was decoded by computers and so on. And you know something, this is not fictitious at all, I am here to tell you that we actually received a coded message, mathematically coded message, from the super-intelligent Creator, telling us exactly what happened; how the universe, the six million species of living organisms in this universe, and the Earth came to be. (there is only life on our planet).

(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:33:18).

  • Now that we possess this irrefutable mathematical proof, that came from outer space from the super-intelligent creator. We can look back and at least smile at statements even from some of the leading creationists. Let me quote for you one of those leading creationists, Duane Gish, he said: “it is impossible to conceive an experiment that could disprove the possibility of creation, creation thus does not fulfill the criteria of a scientific theory”, end of quotation.
  • So even the creationists gave up, thinking that there could never be anything to prove or disprove creation. But here we are just like any other discovery, we find this mathematically coded message from the super intelligent creator. The first hint of the mathematical code was reported about nine hundred (900) years ago by a Jewish rabbi; Rabbi Judah the Pious. And by the way I’m talking here about unaltered; original; untranslated scripture, this is very important, very crucial. Because there has been many distortions, and changes, alternations, losses, additions to the scriptures. And we have to be extremely careful to know that we are dealing with original, unaltered, untranslated scriptures, literally the very same words that the creator brought down or sent to us.
  • So what Rabbi Judah found – let me quote for you, it is easier this way: “the people” – now this is – this quotation is from a book called Studies in Jewish Mysticism, it was edited by Joseph Dan and Frank Talmage, and this is what they said: “the people, Jews, in France, made it a custom to add in the morning prayer, the words; “Ashrei temimei derekh”; blessed are those who walk the righteous way. And our Rabbi the Pious of blessed memory wrote that they were completely and utterly wrong, it is all gross falsehood because there are only nineteen (19) times” – now pay attention to these numbers – “there are only nineteen (19) times that the holy name is mentioned in that portion of the morning prayer. And similarly you find the word Elohim nineteen times in the pericope of Ve-‘elleh shemot… similarly you find that Israel is called “sons” nineteen times. And there are many other examples. All these sets of nineteen are intricately intertwined, and they contain many secrets and esoteric meanings…”
  • So this was the first hint of a mathematical composition in the message that came to us from the creator, some kind of a code. Now, you realize now that it is important to find original scripture, unchanged. And just like the evolutionists looking for fossils and skeletal remains – scientists have been looking the world over for original scriptures. You have heard about the Dead Sea Scrolls, and all the finds in the pots, in the Middle-East, in many places. All these are attempts, some of them are failures, and some of them are successes.
  • So I set out to find an original scripture. And there is – here is the result: in this whole world there is only one scripture that was never altered; not a single letter was changed in this scripture, and that scripture is the Quran. So what I did was I got the Quran, an original copy, with the original Arabic, and I put it in the computer, and I decoded an intricately mathematical code that is clearly beyond human capability. So now we have physical proof, using the ultimate in scientific evidence; mathematics. Telling us everything that happened. That there is a super-intelligent creator, and in that message we see how we came into being, why we are here, where we are going, and many many other answers to lots of our most urgent questions.

(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:38:26).

  • Before I put the Quran in the computer, I noticed for a unique phenomena that you will never find in any other literary work. I noticed for example that chapter two of the Quran has in the first verse – there are only three letters in the first verse, that is it: “A, L, M”, that is verse one of chapter two. And these letters remained mysterious for fourteen hundred (1400) years, scholars and scientists of all kind has been looking at this initials A, L, M and the other initials in Quran, trying to figure out what they mean, and they could not do it – the computer did it, recently.
  • And to give you and idea, if you count the letters A, L, and M, in chapter two of Quran, you will find that the total is nine thousand eight hundred ninety-nine (9899), this number 9899 is a multiple of nineteen (9899 / 19 = 521).
  • Remember the work of Judah – Rabbi Judah the Pious? the number nineteen (19) turns out to be the common denominator in the older scripture and in the newer scripture. Nineteen (19) is the common denominator in the Bible; the original, unaltered Bible. And also in the latest edition of the scripture; the Quran. And this is very important.
  • Now there are twenty-nine (29) chapters in Quran, covering half the Quran, the Quran has hundred fourteen (114) chapters, some of them are longer, and some are shorter. But the twenty-nine (29) initialed chapters constitute half the Quran. And this mathematical system goes from the very simple to the very complex. So it is suitable for people of all levels of education.
  • For example; chapter fifty (50) is entitled; “Q”, that’s it – just one letter; “Q”. And it is initialed with the letter Q (the first verse). The computer said that this chapter contains fifty-seven (57) Qs. When you count them – you can count them if you know the Arabic letters – and you find that the total is fifty-seven (57) – nineteen times three (19×3).
  • There is one other chapter in Quran that is initialed (the first verse) with the letter Q, and that is chapter forty-two (42), which happens to be more than twice as long as chapter fifty (50) entitled Q. And if you count the letter Q in chapter forty-two (42), you will find exactly the same number; fifty-seven (57). So the only two (2) Q initialed chapters have the same number of Qs, fifty-seven (57) and fifty-seven (57).
  • Chapter sixty-eight (68) is initialed with the letter N, as in Nancy; N – and you count the letters N in this chapter, and you come up with hundred thirty-three (133) – nineteen times seven (19×7). And this goes on and on. And it gets more and more complex, until you realize this is not human fabrication, that this is way beyond human ability.
  • For example we have seven (7) chapters that we see initialed with the letters “H, M” – seven of them, about one-tenth – they constitute one-tenth of the whole book. And when you count the letters H; “haah”, and M; “meem” – in these seven chapters, you come up with the total two thousand hundred forty-seven (2147), and this is a multiple of nineteen(19×113); the common denominator throughout the scriptures, the coded message from the creator to us. Two thousand hundred forty seven, now if only one letter “H” or one letter “M”, was lost or added in the last fourteen hundred (1400) years, you would end with two thousand hundred forty-eight (2148), and this is not a multiple of nineteen, the whole system collapses (19×113,0526315789474). Or two thousand hundred forty-six (2146), because mathematics is a pure science, it is the most sensitive scale and if you remove one number; you don’t have a multiple of nineteen (19×112,9473684210526).

  • By the time the computer was done with the mathematical analyses of Quran. A vast mathematical code emerged and you could see that every letter, every word in Quran is precisely calculated beyond human ability and you will be absolutely convinced that this is a message from our super-intelligent creator, telling us exactly what happened. Let me give you another good example, because some people might think that only the initialed chapters are mathematically composed, this simple example is that the opening statement in Quran consists of four words. And the number of letters in this statement is nineteen (19). It is an important statement, it says; “in the name of God, the Gracious; the Merciful.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:44:25).

  • And it is considered the most important statement in Quran. It consists of nineteen letters and every word is found in the whole book in multiples of nineteen. For example the first word; “ism”, or “name”, is mentioned exactly nineteen times throughout the whole book.
  • The second word is God; “allah”, and it is found two thousand six hundred ninety-eight times (2698), this is nineteen times hundred forty-two (19×142).
  • The third word “the gracious” in Arabic: arrahamn, is mention in the whole book fifty-seven times – nineteen times three (19×3).
  • The last word “arraheem”, or the merciful, is mentioned hunted and fourteen times 114, or nineteen times sex (19×6).
  • Now right there you can appreciate that this cannot happen in a human fabricated book, in a human made book. Because we can go to the library – if you go to a library and examine one million human-made books, how many books will you find where the opening statement consist of X numbers of letters, and every word in the opening statement repeated in the whole book in multiples of X, how many? Again, the law of probability say zero, you will not find a book where all the words of the opening statement comply with this criteria. So there you have it, a very simple – this very simple phenomena by the way, was published in the Scientific American in the September 1981 issue, and the comment on it was; “this is an ingenious study of the Quran” – I was really flattered.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:46:10).

  • What does this have to do with the evolution / creation issue? well we have here a vitally important document, from the super-intelligent creator, telling us in words and letters that are mathematically composed beyond human intelligence. Telling us exactly what happened. And in this document, we see that life began in water, just like Darwin said. So this portion of Darwin theory is confirmed.
  • We also see evolution and changes in creation, in Quran chapter thirty-five; verse one (35:1), and in chapter sixteen; verse eight (16:8), we see that evolution is a continuing process. So according to this vitally important document, evolution is a divinely guided process. Evolution is a creation of the super-intelligent creator, and it is something that is happening now on continuous basis. We learn that every one of us was individually created, and the evolution that is taking place is individually controlled and guided by the super-intelligent creator.
  • One of the most exciting things about this document, is that the dichotomy; the great rift between science and religion is eliminated. We now see this document from the super-intelligent creator telling us that evolution is the creator’s work, and that it is going on continuously, and therefore there is no need for this dichotomy between science and religion.
  • So what we see here is mathematical; irrefutable evidence, that creation and evolution both are correct, and they compliment each other. Of course we have to examine the existing theory of evolution and creation, and correct them in the view of the new statements that came to us from the super-intelligent creator.
  • While on the subject on confirming or rejecting existing scriptures. I must point out that this mathematically composed document from the super-intelligent creator; the Quran, set the record straight as far as many existing creationist ideas are concerned. For example, we learn that the earth is billions of years old, not five thousand (5000) or ten thousand (10000) years old.
  • And we learn that the Earth is egg shaped, as I mentioned before – not flat.
  • And we learn that Noah’s Ark for example, did not look like what we see in the pictures of Bible stories and so on. Noah’s Ark was simply a raft; made of logs tied together with primitive ropes. And Noah did not carry all the animals of the Earth on his ark either; or this raft, he carried his domesticated animals to save himself, his family, and his animals from the flood. And the flood did not cover the whole world as we hear as youngsters. The flood was a local flood, all this is proven by mathematically composed statements from the creator Himself.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:50:26).

  • It is very important to realize that the prevalent creationism has nothing to do with the original untranslated Bible. That’s right. The prevalent creationism is a product of medieval storytellers, and ignorant interpretations and mistranslation of the original Bible. For example; the Bible says clearly that one (1) of our days is the same as one thousands (1000) years of your Lord’s – or the day is equal to fifty thousand (50000) years if you look at the Quran in chapter seventy; verse four (70:4). So we are told clearly that one of our day is not equal to any other day. When you go to the Moon, the day equals fourteen (14) Earthly days. If you go to Mercury, for example, the day over there is eighty-eight (88) of our days. So the minute you leave this tiny planet Earth, the day is no longer 24 hours.
  • So the truth is the Bible does not say that the Earth is six thousand (6000) or ten thousand (10000) years old.
  • The Bible does not say that Noah’s flood covered the whole world. And the original Bible does not say that Noah carried all these animals on the ark, and the ark did not look like an aircraft carrier either.
  • These misrepresentations of the Bible actually give Christianity and religion in general a bad name. Most people who are pushing prevalent false creationism are doing a terrible disservice to Christianity and to the Bible, because these misrepresentations are not the truth.
  • Scientific findings – and now mathematics – support the truth in the Bible (the original unaltered Bible). And we must remember that the creationism that is prevalent today is false, the true creationism agrees one hundred percent (100%) with science.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:52:53).

  • It is the prevelance of these ideas that are completely rejected by scientists, and scientific findings and established facts. These ideas called Darwin’s disillusionment with religion. Let me quote for you what Darwin said, as a result of these prevalent creationist ideas.
  • I’m quoting now: “I gradually came to disbelieve in Christianity as a divine revelation… Thus disbelief crept over me at a very slow rate, but was at last complete“.
  • And we cannot blame Darwin for seeing that the Earth is billions of years old, as established by science, while creationist idea say that the Earth is six thousand (6000) years old. You cannot blame the man for not believing that Noah carried all animals; the lions, the giraffes, the polar bears, an the giant worms of Australia on his Ark. And you cannot blame Darwin for not believing that the flood of Noah covered the whole world. So all these things are now set straight. We learn from this document, that the Quran complements the older scriptures, and confirms the majority of the truth in those scriptures, and consummates the whole message from the creator to us.
  • To conclude; we now posses physical incontrovertible evidence that every one of the ~six million (~6000000) species of living organisms came into being through a creation process, then evolution took place, and is going on continuously as a divinely guided and controlled process.
  • Thank you very much.

New Video Begins (intro):

  • Coming up: Excerpts from a radio debate.


(Source: Evolution or Creation, The Final Argument 00:55:39).

Bob (Radio Host):

  • We have invited into our studio; professor Jeff Clark, he is with Arizona State university as an anthropologist, and he maintains that creationism is not a science and therefore does not belong in scientific classes.
  • On the other hand we have Dr. Rashad Khalifa, he is a biochemist, and of course he takes the opposite stand.
  • And we are going through it with our phones open for your opinions about it. It is a hot issue, it is going to be one that is going to be viewed with a great deal of interest by the people in the United States, in the various states. And we are going to find out how this thing is going to evolve.

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Well Bob, I have to make a correction here, in that I will approach the matter from a scientific point of view. I agree with the most of the things that Jeff just mentioned, in that science is our only means to ascertain what the truth is. And we have a very powerful tool – objective and scientific tool – to ascertain what events in the world are probable and what events are not probable, and this powerful tool is mathematics. Mathematics is the most powerful – the most scientific of all the sciences, and it represents the ultimate in scientific proof. I realized that nobody can ever imagine a proof that will prove either evolution or creation, but there is something new and very exciting, and I am here to present it to you.
  • So in essence we are talking about a mathematically coded message from outer space. If you have read Carl Sagan’s “Contact”; he is talking about a novel; a fictitious message from outer space. Now this is not fiction anymore, and I come here with…

Bob (Radio Host):

  • You’re gonna have to put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Jeff Clark:

  • Yes, I dare say (laughs). But in so far the particular aspect of the old testament that is of issue here is that the book of Genesis; it is an origin myth, like any other origin myth, it is not a greater nor lesser than, it is not…

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Well you keep going back, if you are going back to the book of Genesis, it exists…

Jeff Clark:

  • The reason I say that is I believe that that underlies scientific creationism by Henry Morris. Now it is obvious Dr. Rashad Khalifa does not agree with Dr. Morris but still… (Jeff is trying to dismiss Dr. Rashad Khalifa’s argument by associating it with the work of Henry Morris).

Rashad Khalifa:

  • That is right, and he is not here right now, I am debating with you.

Jeff Clark:

  • Ah, that is quite true. But who has written a text on scientific creationism? Henry Morris. And who is the founder of the Institution of Creation Research? Henry Morris. (Jeff is still trying to dismiss Dr. Rashad Khalifa’s argument by associating it with the work of Henry Morris).

Rashad Khalifa:

  • How long ago was that?

Jeff Clark:

  • Well, it goes back about twenty (20) years, as far as my…

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Well we are talking about now. But as soon as this program is over I will show you irrefutable mathematical evidence, that we have a document from out space; from the creator, telling us exactly how things happened…

Bob (Radio Host):

  • How are you going to prove that in the supreme court for heaven’s sake.

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Absolutely, I will prove it in any court.

Bob (Radio Host):

  • Alright, we have to take some calls, this is getting interesting; messages from outer space.

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Absolutely.

Bob (Radio Host):

  • That absolutely prove creationism is a fact?

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Absolutely, yes sir.

Bob (Radio Host):

  • Alright, is it possible that there is some sort of a gigantic protoplasm somewhere around cosmos, with all the ingredients and all of this energy – that can in fact create things. I’m not talking about an old man in a robe with a beard, and pearly gates and things like that. I’m talking about – is there a possibility with our limit knowledge to envision some sort of humongous thing that thinks, that can create things.

Jeff Clark:

  • Well you can envision anything that you want, and they have obviously not in the strict rigorous sense but most…

Rashad Khalifa:

  • You are not saying this about God, but….

Jeff Clark:

  • Gods are – gods are the servants of the societies and the cultures that create them, they have no existence apart from the societies that created them.

Rashad Khalifa:

  • Even if it is proven to you?

Jeff Clark:

  • Well I would like to see somebody prove it to me.

Rashad Khalifa:

  • I’m glad you would like to see it because I can show it to you, there is no escape now, that there is a super-intelligence out there, either proving the theory of evolution; ironically – or the theory of creation.

Peace,

I hope this has been useful for you and that you have learned the details about the debate between Evolution and Creationism. I decided to write the whole video into a text format for those of us who prefer to read instead of watching hour long videos. It makes it easier to understand what is being said without having to go back and forth whenever the video goes too fast. This is especially true if English isn’t your first language, or if your English skill is low. So I really do hope this has been useful to you.

Another benefit is that I can include links to other material for further research, so that the reader doesn’t have to spend a lot of time searching the Internet and all kinds of websites just to find specific information. Instead it will be available at the click of a button.

None of the images, videos or audio is owned by me unless stated otherwise, such as being signed with my name. All copyrighted materials are being used under fair use for educational purposes.

Please contact me if you find any errors, or if you have ideas for how this presentation can be improved.

Thank you and GOD bless.

Free Quran Chapter 20: T.H. (Ta Ha)

Learn from GOD that your belief should not be based on miracles, it should be based on truth, knowledge and wisdom. Miracles alone will not help you. For example when Moses split the sea so the Hebrews escape through it. A GREAT MIRACLE. Can you imagine how it would have been like? You would have been awestruck, amazed, speechless, your body would tingle with spirituality making you feel light and safe. And then you would go and make a calf statue out of gold and worship it! Hahaha

Miracles always come with a message to support it. But the Hebrews lacked knowledge about GOD, so they thought the miracle supported their idols, that’s why they made the golden calf. When Aaron (Moses’ brother) tried to stop the Hebrews, they threatened to kill him! The miracles simply strengthened their disbelief. They were stuck in their traditions. This is why the Torah has been replaced, it contains too much corruption, old traditions and cultures from the same people who worshiped the golden calf –  from a time of ignorance.

This is why the Mathematical Miracle of the Quran is so special. The miracle is built into the message itself. There is no room for misunderstanding. The only way to misunderstand the message is if you intentionally try to twist things around, ignore some parts, or like many people do today; rootwordism, where you take a word you don’t like, go back to its root-word and then pick and choose the meaning you want. But if you just accept the Quran as is, then you are perfectly fine and on the right path.

Quran Chapter 20: T.H. (Ta Ha)

[20:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[20:1] T. H.*

*20:1 The role of these Quranic initials as components of the Quran’s awesome mathematical miracle is given in detail in Appendix 1.

[20:2] We did not reveal the Quran to you, to cause you any hardship.

[20:3] Only to remind the reverent.

[20:4] A revelation from the Creator of the earth and the high heavens.

[20:5] The Most Gracious; He has assumed all authority.

[20:6] To Him belongs everything in the heavens, and the earth, and everything between them, and everything beneath the ground.

[20:7] Whether you declare your convictions (or not) He knows the secret, and what is even more hidden.

[20:8] God: there is no other god besides Him. To Him belong the most beautiful names.

[20:9] Have you noted the history of Moses?

[20:10] When he saw a fire, he said to his family, “Stay here. I have seen a fire. Maybe I can bring you some of it, or find some guidance at the fire.”

[20:11] When he came to it, he was called, “O, Moses.

[20:12] “I am your Lord; remove your sandals. You are in the sacred valley, Tuwa.

[20:13] “I have chosen you, so listen to what is being revealed.

[20:14] “I am God; there is no other god beside Me. You shall worship Me alone, and observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) to remember Me.

End of the World is Not Hidden*

[20:15] “The Hour (end of the world) is surely coming; I will keep it almost hidden, for each soul must be paid for its works.

*20:15 The end of the world is given in the Quran, God’s final message (15:87).

[20:16] “Do not be diverted therefrom by those who do not believe in it – those who pursue their own opinions – lest you fall.

[20:17] “What is this in your right hand, Moses?”

[20:18] He said, “This is my staff. I lean on it, herd my sheep with it, and I use it for other purposes.”

[20:19] He said, “Throw it down, Moses.”

[20:20] He threw it down, whereupon it turned into a moving serpent.

[20:21] He said, “Pick it up; do not be afraid. We will return it to its original state.

[20:22] “And hold your hand under your wing; it will come out white without a blemish; another proof.

[20:23] “We thus show you some of our great portents.

[20:24] “Go to Pharaoh, for he has transgressed.”

[20:25] He said, “My Lord, cool my temper.

[20:26] “And make this matter easy for me.

[20:27] “And untie a knot from my tongue.

[20:28] “So they can understand my speech.

[20:29] “And appoint an assistant for me from my family.

[20:30] “My brother Aaron.

[20:31] “Strengthen me with him.

[20:32] “Let him be my partner in this matter.

[20:33] “That we may glorify You frequently.

[20:34] “And commemorate You frequently.

[20:35] “You are Seer of us.”

[20:36] He said, “Your request is granted, O Moses.

[20:37] “We have blessed you another time.

[20:38] “When we revealed to your mother what we revealed.

[20:39] “Saying: `Throw him into the box, then throw him into the river. The river will throw him onto the shore, to be picked up by an enemy of Mine and an enemy of his.’ I showered you with love from Me, and I had you made before My watchful eye.

[20:40] “Your sister walked to them and said, `I can tell you about a nursing mother who can take good care of him.’ We thus returned you to your mother, that she may be happy and stop worrying. And when you killed a person, we saved you from the grievous consequences; indeed we tested you thoroughly. You stayed years with the people of Midyan, and now you have come back in accordance with a precise plan.

[20:41] “I have made you just for Me.

[20:42] “Go with your brother, supported by My signs, and do not waver in remembering Me.

[20:43] “Go to Pharaoh, for he transgressed.

[20:44] “Speak to him nicely; he may take heed, or become reverent.”

[20:45] They said, “Our Lord, we fear lest he may attack us, or transgress.”

[20:46] He said, “Do not be afraid, for I will be with you, listening and watching.

[20:47] “Go to him and say, `We are two messengers from your Lord. Let the Children of Israel go. You must refrain from persecuting them. We bring a sign from your Lord, and peace is the lot of those who heed the guidance.

[20:48] “`We have been inspired that the retribution will inevitably afflict those who disbelieve and turn away.’ “

[20:49] He said, “Who is your Lord, O Moses.”

[20:50] He said, “Our Lord is the One who granted everything its existence, and its guidance.”

[20:51] He said, “What about the past generations?”

[20:52] He said, “The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a record. My Lord never errs, nor does He forget.”

[20:53] He is the One who made the earth habitable for you, and paved in it roads for you. And He sends down from the sky water with which we produce many different kinds of plants.

[20:54] Eat and raise your livestock. These are sufficient proofs for those who possess intelligence.*

*20:54 Those who possess intelligence appreciate the fact that we are astronauts who were launched into space on this `Spaceship Earth.’ God provided us with renewable food, water, pets, wildlife, and livestock, as we embark on this temporary space odyssey. Compare God’s provisions to `Spaceship Earth’ with the provisions we give to our astronauts (Appendix 7).

[20:55] From it we created you, into it we return you, and from it we bring you out once more.

[20:56] We showed him all our proofs, but he disbelieved and refused.

[20:57] He said, “Did you come here to take us out of our land with your magic, O Moses?

[20:58] “We will surely show you similar magic. Therefore, set an appointment that neither we, nor you will violate; in a neutral place.”

[20:59] He said, “Your appointed time shall be the day of festivities. Let us all meet in the forenoon.”

[20:60] Pharaoh summoned his forces, then came.

[20:61] Moses said to them, “Woe to you. Do you fabricate lies to fight God and thus incur His retribution? Such fabricators will surely fail.”

[20:62] They disputed among themselves, as they conferred privately.

[20:63] They said, “These two are no more than magicians who wish to take you out of your land with their magic, and to destroy your ideal way of life.

[20:64] “Let us agree upon one scheme and face them as a united front. The winner today will have the upper hand.”

[20:65] They said, “O Moses, either you throw, or we will be the first to throw.”

[20:66] He said, “You throw.” Whereupon, their ropes and sticks appeared to him, because of their magic, as if they were moving.

[20:67] Moses harbored some fear.

[20:68] We said, “Have no fear. You will prevail.

[20:69] “Throw what you hold in your right hand, and it will swallow what they fabricated. What they fabricated is no more than the scheming of a magician. The magician’s work will not succeed.”

The Experts Recognize The Truth

[20:70] The magicians fell prostrate, saying, “We believe in the Lord of Aaron and Moses.”

[20:71] He said, “Did you believe in him without my permission? He must be your chief; the one who taught you magic. I will surely sever your hands and feet on alternate sides. I will crucify you on the palm trunks. You will find out which of us can inflict the worst retribution, and who outlasts whom.”

[20:72] They said, “We will not prefer you over the clear proofs that came to us, and over the One who created us. Therefore, issue whatever judgment you wish to issue. You can only rule in this lowly life.

[20:73] “We have believed in our Lord, that He may forgive us our sins, and the magic that you forced us to perform. God is far better and Everlasting.”

[20:74] Anyone who comes to his Lord guilty will incur Hell, wherein he never dies, nor stays alive.

[20:75] As for those who come to Him as believers who had led a righteous life, they attain the high ranks.

[20:76] The gardens of Eden, beneath which rivers flow, will be their abode forever. Such is the reward for those who purify themselves.

[20:77] We inspired Moses: “Lead My servants out, and strike for them a dry road across the sea. You shall not fear that you may get caught, nor shall you worry.”

[20:78] Pharaoh pursued them with his troops, but the sea overwhelmed them, as it was destined to overwhelm them.

[20:79] Thus, Pharaoh misled his people; he did not guide them.

[20:80] O Children of Israel, we delivered you from your enemy, summoned you to the right side of Mount Sinai, and we sent down to you manna and quails.

[20:81] Eat from the good things we provided for you, and do not transgress, lest you incur My wrath. Whoever incurs My wrath has fallen.

[20:82] I am surely Forgiving for those who repent, believe, lead a righteous life, and steadfastly remain guided.

The Children of Israel Rebel

[20:83] “Why did you rush away from your people, O Moses?”

[20:84] He said, “They are close behind me. I have rushed to You my Lord, that You may be pleased.”

[20:85] He said, “We have put your people to the test after you left, but the Samarian misled them.”

[20:86] Moses returned to his people, angry and disappointed, saying, “O my people, did your Lord not promise you a good promise? Could you not wait? Did you want to incur wrath from your Lord? Is this why you broke your agreement with me?”

[20:87] They said, “We did not break our agreement with you on purpose. But we were loaded down with jewelry, and decided to throw our loads in. This is what the Samarian suggested.”

[20:88] He produced for them a sculpted calf, complete with a calf’s sound.* They said, “This is your god, and the god of Moses.” Thus, he forgot.

*20:88 & 96 The Samarian went to the spot where God spoke to Moses, and grabbed a fistful of dust upon which God’s voice had echoed. This dust, when mixed with the molten gold, caused the golden statue to acquire the sound of a calf.

[20:89] Could they not see that it neither responded to them, nor possessed any power to harm them, or benefit them?

[20:90] And Aaron had told them, “O my people, this is a test for you. Your only Lord is the Most Gracious, so follow me, and obey my commands.”

[20:91] They said, “We will continue to worship it, until Moses comes back.”

[20:92] (Moses) said, “O Aaron, what is it that prevented you, when you saw them go astray,

[20:93] “from following my orders? Have you rebelled against me?”

[20:94] He said, “O son of my mother; do not pull me by my beard and my head. I was afraid that you might say, `You have divided the Children of Israel, and disobeyed my orders.’ “

[20:95] He said, “What is the matter with you, O Samarian?”

[20:96] He said, “I saw what they could not see. I grabbed a fistful (of dust) from the place where the messenger stood, and used it (to mix into the golden calf). This is what my mind inspired me to do.”

*20:88 & 96 The Samarian went to the spot where God spoke to Moses, and grabbed a fistful of dust upon which God’s voice had echoed. This dust, when mixed with the molten gold, caused the golden statue to acquire the sound of a calf.

[20:97] He said, “Then go, and, throughout your life, do not even come close. You have an appointed time (for your final judgment) that you can never evade. Look at your god that you used to worship; we will burn it and throw it into the sea, to stay down there forever.”

You Have But One God

[20:98] Your only god is God; the One beside whom there is no other god. His knowledge encompasses all things.

[20:99] We thus narrate to you some news from the past generations. We have revealed to you a message from us.

[20:100] Those who disregard it will bear a load (of sins) on the Day of Resurrection.

[20:101] Eternally they abide therein; what a miserable load on the Day of Resurrection!

[20:102] That is the day when the horn is blown, and we summon the guilty on that day blue.

[20:103] Whispering among themselves, they will say, “You have stayed (in the first life) no more than ten days!”

[20:104] We are fully aware of their utterances. The most accurate among them will say, “You stayed no more than a day.”

On the Day of Resurrection

[20:105] They ask you about the mountains. Say, “My Lord will wipe them out.

[20:106] “He will leave them like a barren, flat land.

[20:107] “Not even the slightest hill will you see therein, nor a dip.”

[20:108] On that day, everyone will follow the caller, without the slightest deviation. All sounds will be hushed before the Most Gracious; you will hear nothing but whispers.

[20:109] On that day, intercession will be useless, except for those permitted by the Most Gracious, and whose utterances conform to His will.

[20:110] He knows their past and their future, while none encompasses His knowledge.

[20:111] All faces will submit to the Living, the Eternal, and those who are burdened by their transgressions will fail.

[20:112] As for those who worked righteousness, while believing, they will have no fear of injustice or adversity.

[20:113] We thus revealed it, an Arabic Quran, and we cited in it all kinds of prophecies, that they may be saved, or it may cause them to take heed.

[20:114] Most Exalted is God, the only true King. Do not rush into uttering the Quran before it is revealed to you, and say, “My Lord, increase my knowledge.”

Humans Fail to Make a Firm Stand*

[20:115] We tested Adam in the past, but he forgot, and we found him indecisive.

*20:115 When Satan challenged God’s absolute authority (38:69), you and I did not make a firm stand against Satan. God is giving us a chance, on this earth, to redeem ourselves by denouncing Satan and upholding God’s absolute authority (Appendix 7).

[20:116] Recall that we said to the angels, “Fall prostrate before Adam.” They fell prostrate, except Satan; he refused.

[20:117] We then said, “O Adam, this is an enemy of you and your wife. Do not let him evict you from Paradise, lest you become miserable.

[20:118] “You are guaranteed never to hunger therein, nor go unsheltered.

[20:119] “Nor will you thirst therein, nor suffer from any heat.”

[20:120] But the devil whispered to him, saying, “O Adam, let me show you the tree of eternity and unending kingship.”

[20:121] They ate from it, whereupon their bodies became visible to them, and they tried to cover themselves with the leaves of Paradise. Adam thus disobeyed his Lord, and fell.

[20:122] Subsequently, his Lord chose him, redeemed him, and guided him.

[20:123] He said, “Go down therefrom, all of you. You are enemies of one another. When guidance comes to you from Me, anyone who follows My guidance will not go astray, nor suffer any misery.

For the Disbelievers: Miserable Life Unavoidable

[20:124] “As for the one who disregards My message, he will have a miserable life, and we resurrect him, on the Day of Resurrection, blind.”

[20:125] He will say, “My Lord, why did you summon me blind, when I used to be a seer?”

[20:126] He will say, “Because you forgot our revelations when they came to you, you are now forgotten.”

[20:127] We thus requite those who transgress and refuse to believe in the revelations of their Lord. The retribution in the Hereafter is far worse and everlasting.

[20:128] Does it ever occur to them how many previous generations we have annihilated? They are now walking in the homes of those before them. These are signs for those who possess intelligence.

[20:129] If it were not for your Lord’s predetermined plan, they would have been judged immediately.

[20:130] Therefore, be patient in the face of their utterances, and praise and glorify your Lord before sunrise and before sunset. And during the night glorify Him, as well as at both ends of the day, that you may be happy.

[20:131] And do not covet what we bestowed upon any other people. Such are temporary ornaments of this life, whereby we put them to the test. What your Lord provides for you is far better, and everlasting.

The Parents’ Responsibility

[20:132] You shall enjoin your family to observe the contact prayers (Salat), and steadfastly persevere in doing so. We do not ask you for any provisions; we are the ones who provide for you. The ultimate triumph belongs to the righteous.

Why Messengers?

[20:133] They said, “If he could only show us a miracle from his Lord!” Did they not receive sufficient miracles with the previous messages?

[20:134] Had we annihilated them before this, they would have said, “Our Lord, had You sent a messenger to us, we would have followed Your revelations, and would have avoided this shame and humiliation.”

[20:135] Say, “All of us are waiting, so wait; you will surely find out who are on the correct path, and who are truly guided.”

Free Quran Chapter 26: The Poets (Al-Shu’ara’)

Learn from GOD that it takes expertise to recognize the Mathematical Miracle of the Quran. You need to have skills in logical thinking and an ability to do your own research, and the confidence to determine if something is true or false. You must also be able to overcome your own ego and opinion when facing facts. This is the most common issue with those who oppose the Mathematical Miracle. They label it as numerology. But they do this because they A: Don’t know what numerology is. B: They didn’t really study the Mathematical Miracle of the Quran.

Anyone who studies it will see that it is beyond anything mankind has encountered before. Instead, it is a structure. Just like how a building is a structure, or how our solar system is a structure. But this structure is beyond anything we can build ourselves. It has more in common with the complexity and intricacy of the universe than any man-made structure.

If you want a message from GOD, that is: Proven, straightforward, giving you all kinds of secrets and facts about all your questions and doubts. Then do yourself a favor, study the Quran and the Mathematical Miracle. Expertise means being an expert at something. And logically, you need to be an expert to recognize the truth. Because if you are not an expert, then you actually know nothing.

Quran Chapter 26: The Poets (Al-Shu’ara’)

[26:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[26:1] T. S. M.*

*26:1 See Appendix 1 for the significance of these previously mysterious letters.

[26:2] These (letters) constitute proofs of this clarifying scripture.

[26:3] You may blame yourself that they are not believers.

[26:4] If we will, we can send from the sky a sign that forces their necks to bow.

The Quran’s Mathematical Code

[26:5] Whenever a reminder from the Most Gracious comes to them, that is new, they turn away in aversion.

[26:6] Since they disbelieved, they have incurred the consequences of their heedlessness.

[26:7] Have they not seen the earth, and how many kinds of beautiful plants we have grown thereon?

[26:8] This should be a sufficient proof for them, but most of them are not believers.

[26:9] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Moses

[26:10] Recall that your Lord called Moses: “Go to the transgressing people.

[26:11] “Pharaoh’s people; perhaps they reform.”

[26:12] He said, “My Lord, I fear lest they disbelieve me.

[26:13] “I may lose my temper. My tongue gets tied; send for my brother Aaron.

[26:14] “Also, they consider me a fugitive; I fear lest they kill me.”

[26:15] He said, “No, (they will not). Go with My proofs. We will be with you, listening.

[26:16] “Go to Pharaoh and say, `We are messengers from the Lord of the universe.’

[26:17] ” `Let the Children of Israel go.’ “

[26:18] He said, “Did we not raise you from infancy, and you spent many years with us?

[26:19] “Then you committed the crime that you committed, and you were ungrateful.”

[26:20] He said, “Indeed, I did it when I was astray.

[26:21] “Then I fled, when I feared you, and my Lord endowed me with wisdom and made me one of the messengers.

[26:22] “You are boasting that you did me a favor, while enslaving the Children of Israel!”

[26:23] Pharaoh said, “What is the Lord of the universe?”

[26:24] He said, “The Lord of the heavens and the earth, and everything between them. You should be certain about this.”

[26:25] He said to those around him, “Did you hear this?”

[26:26] He said, “Your Lord and the Lord of your ancestors.”

[26:27] He said, “Your messenger who is sent to you is crazy.”

[26:28] He said, “The Lord of the east and the west, and everything between them, if you understand.”

[26:29] He said, “If you accept any god, other than me, I will throw you in the prison.”

[26:30] He said, “What if I show you something profound?”

[26:31] He said, “Then produce it, if you are truthful.”

[26:32] He then threw his staff, whereupon it became a profound snake.

[26:33] And he took out his hand, and it was white to the beholders.

[26:34] He said to the elders around him, “This is an experienced magician.

[26:35] “He wants to take you out of your land, with his magic. What do you suggest?”

[26:36] They said, “Respite him and his brother, and send summoners to every town.

[26:37] “Let them summon every experienced magician.”

[26:38] The magicians were gathered at the appointed time, on the appointed day.

[26:39] The people were told: “Come one and all; let us gather together here.

[26:40] “Maybe we will follow the magicians, if they are the winners.”

[26:41] When the magicians came, they said to Pharaoh, “Do we get paid, if we are the winners?”

[26:42] He said, “Yes indeed; you will even be close to me.”

[26:43] Moses said to them “Throw what you are going to throw.”

[26:44] They threw their ropes and sticks, and said, “By Pharaoh’s majesty, we will be the victors.”

[26:45] Moses threw his staff, whereupon it swallowed what they fabricated.

The Experts See the Truth

[26:46] The magicians fell prostrate.

[26:47] They said, “We believe in the Lord of the universe.

[26:48] “The Lord of Moses and Aaron.”

[26:49] He said, “Did you believe with him before I give you permission? He must be your teacher, who taught you magic. You will surely find out. I will cut your hands and feet on alternate sides. I will crucify you all.”

[26:50] They said, “This will not change our decision; to our Lord we will return.

[26:51] “We hope that our Lord will forgive us our sins, especially that we are the first believers.”

[26:52] We inspired Moses: “Travel with My servants; you will be pursued.”

[26:53] Pharaoh sent to the cities callers.

[26:54] (Proclaiming,) “This is a small gang.

[26:55] “They are now opposing us.

[26:56] “Let us all beware of them.”

The Inevitable Retribution

[26:57] Consequently, we deprived them of gardens and springs.

[26:58] And treasures and an honorable position.

[26:59] Then we made it an inheritance for the Children of Israel.

[26:60] They pursued them towards the east.

[26:61] When both parties saw each other, Moses’ people said, “We will be caught.”

[26:62] He said, “No way. My Lord is with me; He will guide me.”

[26:63] We then inspired Moses: “Strike the sea with your staff,” whereupon it parted. Each part was like a great hill.

[26:64] We then delivered them all.

[26:65] We thus saved Moses and all those who were with him.

[26:66] And we drowned the others.

[26:67] This should be a sufficient proof, but most people are not believers.

[26:68] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Abraham

[26:69] Narrate to them Abraham’s history.

[26:70] He said to his father and his people, “What is this you are worshiping?”

[26:71] They said, “We worship statues; we are totally devoted to them.”

[26:72] He said, “Can they hear you when you implore?

[26:73] “Can they benefit you, or harm you?”

[26:74] They said, “No; but we found our parents doing this.”

[26:75] He said, “Do you see these idols that you worship.

[26:76] “You and your ancestors.

[26:77] “I am against them, for I am devoted only to the Lord of the universe.

[26:78] “The One who created me, and guided me.

[26:79] “The One who feeds me and waters me.

[26:80] “And when I get sick, He heals me.

[26:81] “The One who puts me to death, then brings me back to life.

[26:82] “The One who hopefully will forgive my sins on the Day of Judgment.

[26:83] “My Lord, grant me wisdom, and include me with the righteous.

[26:84] “Let the example I set for the future generations be a good one.

[26:85] “Make me one of the inheritors of the blissful Paradise.

[26:86] “And forgive my father, for he has gone astray.

[26:87] “And do not forsake me on the Day of Resurrection.”

[26:88] That is the day when neither money, nor children, can help.

[26:89] Only those who come to God with their whole heart (will be saved).

[26:90] Paradise will be presented to the righteous.

[26:91] Hell will be set up for the strayers.

They Will Disown Their Idols

[26:92] They will be asked, “Where are the idols you had worshiped

[26:93] “beside God? Can they help you now? Can they help themselves?”

[26:94] They will be thrown therein, together with the strayers.

[26:95] And all of Satan’s soldiers.

[26:96] They will say as they feud therein,

[26:97] “By God, we were far astray.

[26:98] “How could we set you up to rank with the Lord of the universe?

[26:99] “Those who misled us were wicked.

[26:100] “Now we have no intercessors.

[26:101] “Nor a single close friend.

[26:102] “If only we could get another chance, we would then believe.”

[26:103] This should be a good lesson. But most people are not believers.

[26:104] Your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Noah

[26:105] The people of Noah disbelieved the messengers.

[26:106] Their brother Noah said to them, “Would you not be righteous?

[26:107] “I am an honest messenger to you.

[26:108] “You shall reverence God and obey me.

[26:109] “I do not ask you for any wage. My wage comes from the Lord of the universe.

[26:110] “You shall reverence God and obey me.”

[26:111] They said, “How can we believe with you, when the worst among us have followed you?”

[26:112] He said, “How do I know what they did?

[26:113] “Their judgment rests only with my Lord, if you could perceive.

[26:114] “I will never dismiss the believers.

[26:115] “I am no more than a clarifying warner.”

[26:116] They said, “Unless you refrain, O Noah, you will be stoned.”

[26:117] He said, “My Lord, my people have disbelieved me.

[26:118] “Grant me victory against them, and deliver me and my company of believers.”

[26:119] We delivered him and those who accompanied him in the loaded ark.

[26:120] Then we drowned the others.

[26:121] This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers.

[26:122] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Hood

[26:123] `Ãd disbelieved the messengers.

[26:124] Their brother Hûd said to them, “Would you not be righteous?

[26:125] “I am an honest messenger to you.

[26:126] “You shall reverence God, and obey me.

[26:127] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes from the Lord of the universe.

[26:128] “You build on every hill a mansion for vanity’s sake.

[26:129] “You set up buildings as if you last forever.

[26:130] “And when you strike, you strike mercilessly.

[26:131] “You shall reverence God and obey me.

[26:132] “Reverence the One who provided you with all the things you know.

[26:133] “He provided you with livestock and children.

[26:134] “And gardens and springs.

[26:135] “I fear for you the retribution of an awesome day.”

[26:136] They said, “It is the same whether you preach, or not preach.

[26:137] “That affliction was limited to our ancestors.

[26:138] “No retribution will ever befall us.”

[26:139] They thus disbelieved and, consequently, we annihilated them. This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers.

[26:140] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Saaleh

[26:141] Thamoud disbelieved the messengers.

[26:142] Their brother SÃleh said to them, “Would you not be righteous?

[26:143] “I am an honest messenger to you.

[26:144] “You shall reverence God, and obey me.

[26:145] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes only from the Lord of the universe.

[26:146] “Do you suppose you will be left forever, secure in this state?

[26:147] “You enjoy gardens and springs.

[26:148] “And crops and date palms with delicious fruits.

[26:149] “You carve out of the mountains luxurious mansions.

[26:150] “You shall reverence God, and obey me.

[26:151] “Do not obey the transgressors.

[26:152] “Who commit evil, not good works.”

[26:153] They said, “You are bewitched.

[26:154] “You are no more than a human like us. Produce a miracle, if you are truthful.”

[26:155] He said, “Here is a camel that will drink only on a day that is assigned to her; a day that is different from your specified days of drinking.

[26:156] “Do not touch her with any harm, lest you incur retribution on an awesome day.”

[26:157] They slaughtered her, and thus incurred sorrow.

[26:158] The retribution overwhelmed them. This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers.

[26:159] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Lot

[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] “You shall reverence God, and obey me.

[26:164] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes only from the Lord of the universe.

[26:165] “Do you have sex with the males, of all the people?

[26:166] “You forsake the wives that your Lord has created for you! Indeed, you are transgressing people.”

[26:167] They said, “Unless you refrain, O Lot, you will be banished.”

[26:168] He said, “I deplore your actions.”

[26:169] “My Lord, save me and my family from their works.”

[26:170] We saved him and all his family.

[26:171] But not the old woman; she was doomed.

[26:172] We then destroyed the others.

[26:173] We showered them with a miserable shower; what a terrible shower for those who had been warned!

[26:174] This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers.

[26:175] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

Shu`aib

[26:176] The People of the Woods disbelieved the messengers.

[26:177] Shu`aib said to them, “Would you not be righteous?

[26:178] “I am an honest messenger to you.

[26:179] “You shall reverence God, and obey me.

[26:180] “I do not ask you for any wage; my wage comes only from the Lord of the universe.

[26:181] “You shall give full measure when you trade; do not cheat.

[26:182] “You shall weigh with an equitable scale.

[26:183] “Do not cheat the people out of their rights, and do not roam the earth corruptingly.

[26:184] “Reverence the One who created you and the previous generations.”

[26:185] They said, “You are bewitched.

[26:186] “You are no more than a human being like us. In fact, we think you are a liar.

[26:187] “Let masses from the sky fall on us, if you are truthful.”

[26:188] He said, “My Lord is the One who knows everything you do.”

[26:189] They disbelieved him and, consequently, they incurred the retribution of the Day of the Canopy. It was the retribution of an awesome day.

[26:190] This should be a lesson, but most people are not believers.

[26:191] Most assuredly, your Lord is the Almighty, Most Merciful.

The Quran

[26:192] This is a revelation from the Lord of the universe.

[26:193] The Honest Spirit (Gabriel) came down with it.

[26:194] To reveal it into your heart, that you may be one of the warners.

[26:195] In a perfect Arabic tongue.

[26:196] It has been prophesied in the books of previous generations.

[26:197] Is it not a sufficient sign for them that it was known to the scholars among the Children of Israel?

The Quran Must Be Translated

[26:198] If we revealed this to people who do not know Arabic.

[26:199] And had him recite it (in Arabic), they could not possibly believe in it.

[26:200] We thus render it (like a foreign language) in the hearts of the guilty.

[26:201] Thus, they cannot believe in it; not until they see the painful retribution.

[26:202] It will come to them suddenly, when they least expect it.

[26:203] They will then say, “Can we have a respite?”

[26:204] Did they not challenge our retribution?

[26:205] As you see, we allowed them to enjoy for years.

[26:206] Then the retribution came to them, just as promised.

[26:207] Their vast resources did not help them in the least.

[26:208] We never annihilate any community without sending warners.

[26:209] Therefore, this is a reminder, for we are never unjust.

False Messengers Incapable of Preaching the Worship of God ALONE*

[26:210] The devils can never reveal this.

*26:210 A false messenger is a messenger of Satan, for he is the fabricator of the most horrendous lie. Such a messenger can never denounce idolatry, or preach the worship of God ALONE.

[26:211] They neither would, nor could.

[26:212] For they are prevented from hearing.

[26:213] Therefore, do not idolize beside God any other god, lest you incur the retribution.

God’s Messenger of the Covenant*

[26:214] You shall preach to the people who are closest to you.

*26:214-223 These verses refer to God’s Messenger of the Covenant: the sum of the gematrical value of “Rashad Khalifa” (1230), plus the verse number (214) is 1230+214=1444=19×76= 19x19x4, and the sum of the verse numbers from 214 through 223 is 2185=19×115 (Appendix 1).

[26:215] And lower your wing for the believers who follow you.

[26:216] If they disobey you, then say, “I disown what you do.”

[26:217] And put your trust in the Almighty, Most Merciful.

[26:218] Who sees you when you meditate during the night.

[26:219] And your frequent prostrations.

[26:220] He is the Hearer, the Omniscient.

[26:221] Shall I inform you upon whom the devils descend?

[26:222] They descend upon every guilty fabricator.

[26:223] They pretend to listen, but most of them are liars.

[26:224] As for the poets, they are followed only by the strayers.

[26:225] Do you not see that their loyalty shifts according to the situation?

[26:226] And that they say what they do not do?

[26:227] Exempted are those who believe, lead a righteous life, commemorate God frequently, and stand up for their rights. Surely, the transgressors will find out what their ultimate destiny is.

Free Quran Chapter 27: The Ant (Al-Naml)

Learn from GOD that the computer was predicted at least 1400 years ago, a creature from earthly materials. In this chapter we learn something very mind blowing. It tells us about a man-made creature that will expose mankind’s disbelief in GOD. And this is exactly what has happened. The Quran was inputted into a computer for the first time by Rashad Khalifa back i 1974, and what he discovered chocked him and the Islamic world. It also caused major distress within other religious groups such as Christianity. This then inspired them to work with the Bible to find a similar mathematical miracle. But they failed miserably.

However, once Rashad Khalifa proclaimed that he was a messenger, then the entire Islamic world stopped supporting him. They have since then been working diligently to try and erase all trace of him and his work. This has made it difficult for Muslims and other people to get information about the discovery. It is mostly sought out by very few people who have a deep interest in religious research, and access to the Internet. A lot of people have also hijacked Rashad Khalifa’s work by changing a few things around and calling themselves messengers as well. Which in turn has given rise to many sects, each one with minor differences. This makes it naturally repulsive to pursue this whole ordeal due to all the misinformation and conflicts.

One advice is simply to study the source, study the Quran and study Rashad Khalifa’s work. This way you will be able to recognize if any of the other groups are trying to deceive you. The most common issue is that most of those people have not even studied the Quran, nor have they understood the Mathematical Miracle of the Quran. And in some cases- their disputes are merely based on opinion; such as the meaning of certain Arabic words. Each Arabic word has a root-word that has many meanings depending on how it is used in a sentence. So if they find a word in the Quran that they don’t like, then they go back to its root-word and pick one meaning that best fits their agenda. They use this trick to make up whatever message they want.

Quran Chapter 27: The Ant (Al-Naml)

[27:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

[27:1] T. S.* These (letters) constitute proofs of the Quran; a profound scripture.

*27:1 See Appendix 1 for the meaning of these Quranic initials.

[27:2] A beacon, and good news, for the believers.

[27:3] Who observe the Contact Prayers (Salat), give the obligatory charity (Zakat), and they are, with regard to the Hereafter, absolutely certain.

[27:4] Those who do not believe in the Hereafter, we adorn their works in their eyes. Thus, they continue to blunder.

[27:5] It is these who incur the worst retribution, and in the Hereafter, they will be the worst losers.

[27:6] Surely, you are receiving the Quran from a Most Wise, Omniscient.

Moses

[27:7] Recall that Moses said to his family, “I see a fire; let me bring you news therefrom, or a torch to warm you.”

[27:8] When he came to it, he was called: “Blessed is the One (who is speaking from) within the fire, and those around it.” Glory be to God, Lord of the universe.

[27:9] “O Moses, this is Me, God, the Almighty, Most Wise.

[27:10] “Throw down your staff.” When he saw it moving like a demon, he turned around and fled. “O Moses, do not be afraid. My messengers shall not fear.

[27:11] “Except those who commit a transgression, then substitute righteousness after sinning; I am Forgiving, Most Merciful.

[27:12] “Put your hand in your pocket; it will come out white, without a blemish. These are among nine miracles to Pharaoh and his people, for they are wicked people.”

[27:13] When our miracles were presented to them, clear and profound, they said, “This is obviously magic.”

[27:14] They rejected them and were utterly convinced of their wrong ways, due to their arrogance. Note the consequences for the evildoers.

David and Solomon

[27:15] We endowed David and Solomon with knowledge, and they said, “Praise God for blessing us more than many of His believing servants.”

[27:16] Solomon was David’s heir. He said, “O people, we have been endowed with understanding the language of the birds, and all kinds of things have been bestowed upon us. This is indeed a real blessing.”

[27:17] Mobilized in the service of Solomon were his obedient soldiers of jinns and humans, as well as the birds; all at his disposal.

[27:18] When they approached the valley of the ants, one ant said, “O you ants, go into your homes, lest you get crushed by Solomon and his soldiers, without perceiving.”*

[27:19] He smiled and laughed at her statement,* and said, “My Lord, direct me to be appreciative of the blessings You have bestowed upon me and my parents, and to do the righteous works that please You. Admit me by Your mercy into the company of Your righteous servants.”

*27:18-19 The more unusual the events in a given sura, the stronger the mathematical evidence supporting them. This helps assure us that such strange phenomena are indicative of God’s power. This sura’s initials, T.S., constitute a complex part of the mathematical miracles related to the Quranic initials. The unusual birth and miracles of Jesus are in Sura 19, which is prefixed with five Quranic Initials. See Appendix 1 for the details.

[27:20] He inspected the birds, and noted: “Why do I not see the hoopoe? Why is he missing?

[27:21] “I will punish him severely or sacrifice him, unless he gives me a good excuse.”

[27:22] He did not wait for long. (The hoopoe) said, “I have news that you do not have. I have brought to you from Sheba, some important information.

[27:23] “I found a woman ruling them, who is blessed with everything, and possesses a tremendous palace.

[27:24] “I found her and her people prostrating before the sun, instead of God. The devil has adorned their works in their eyes, and has repulsed them from the path; consequently, they are not guided.”

[27:25] They should have been prostrating before God, the One who manifests all the mysteries in the heavens and the earth, and the One who knows everything you conceal and everything you declare.

[27:26] God: there is no other god beside Him; the Lord with the great dominion.

[27:27] (Solomon) said, “We will see if you told the truth, or if you are a liar.

[27:28] “Take this letter from me, give it to them, then watch for their response.”

Back in Sheba

[27:29] She said, “O my advisers, I have received an honorable letter.

[27:30] “It is from Solomon, and it is, `In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.’*

*27:30 The `Basmalah’ included in this verse compensates for the `Basmalah’ that is missing from Sura 9, 19 suras earlier. This restores the total occurrence of `Basmalah’ to 114, 19×6. See Appendix 29 for details of a vast and profound miracle attached to this `Basmalah.’

[27:31] “Proclaiming: `Do not be arrogant; come to me as submitters.’ “

[27:32] She said, “O my advisers, counsel me in this matter. I am not deciding anything until you advise me.”

[27:33] They said, “We possess the power, we possess the fighting skills, and the ultimate command is in your hand. You decide what to do.”

[27:34] She said, “The kings corrupt any land they invade, and subjugate its dignified people. This is what they usually do.

[27:35] “I am sending a gift to them; let us see what the messengers come back with.”

[27:36] When the hoopoe returned to Solomon (he told him the news), and he responded (to Sheba’s people): “Are you giving me money? What God has given me is far better than what He has given you. You are the ones to rejoice in such gifts.”

[27:37] (To the hoopoe, he said,) “Go back to them (and let them know that) we will come to them with forces they cannot imagine. We will evict them, humiliated and debased.”

Faster Than the Speed of Light

[27:38] He said, “O you elders, which of you can bring me her mansion, before they arrive here as submitters?”

[27:39] One afrit from the jinns said, “I can bring it to you before you stand up. I am powerful enough to do this.”

[27:40] The one who possessed knowledge from the book said, “I can bring it to you in the blink of your eye.” When he saw it settled in front of him, he said, “This is a blessing from my Lord, whereby He tests me, to show whether I am appreciative or unappreciative. Whoever is appreciative is appreciative for his own good, and if one turns unappreciative, then my Lord is in no need for him, Most Honorable.”

[27:41] He said, “Remodel her mansion for her. Let us see if she will be guided, or continue with the misguided.”

[27:42] When she arrived, she was asked, “Does your mansion look like this?” She said, “It seems that this is it.” (Solomon said,) “We knew beforehand what she was going to do, and we were already submitters.”

[27:43] She had been diverted by worshiping idols instead of God; she belonged to disbelieving people.

[27:44] She was told, “Go inside the palace.” When she saw its interior, she thought it was a pool of water, and she (pulled up her dress,) exposing her legs. He said, “This interior is now paved with crystal.” She said, “My Lord, I have wronged my soul. I now submit with Solomon to God, Lord of the universe.”

Saaleh

[27:45] We have sent to Thamoud their brother SÃleh, saying, “You shall worship God.” But they turned into two feuding factions.

[27:46] He said, “O my people, why do you hasten to commit evil instead of good works? If only you implore God for forgiveness, you may attain mercy.”

[27:47] They said, “We consider you a bad omen for us, you and those who joined you.” He said, “Your omen is fully controlled by God. Indeed, you are deviant people.”

[27:48] There were nine gangsters in the city who were wicked, and never did anything good.

[27:49] They said, “Let us swear by God that we kill him and his people, then tell his tribe, `We know nothing about their death. We are truthful.’ “

God Protects The Believers

[27:50] They plotted and schemed, but we also plotted and schemed, while they did not perceive.

[27:51] Note the consequences of their plotting; we annihilated them and all their people.

[27:52] Here are their homes utterly ruined, because of their transgression. This should be a lesson for people who know.

[27:53] We save those who believe and lead a righteous life.

Lot

[27:54] Lot said to his people, “How could you commit such an abomination, publicly, while you see?

[27:55] “You practice sex with the men, lustfully, instead of the women. Indeed, you are ignorant people.”

[27:56] The only response from his people was their saying, “Banish Lot’s family from your town; they are people who wish to be pure.”

[27:57] Consequently, we saved him and his family, except his wife; we counted her among the doomed.

[27:58] We showered them with a certain shower. It was a miserable shower upon people who had been warned.

Make No Distinction Among God’s Messengers

[27:59] Say, “Praise be to God and peace be upon His servants whom He chose. Is God better, or the idols some people set up?”

God ALONE Worthy of Worship

[27:60] Who is the One who created the heavens and the earth? Who is the One who sends down to you from the sky water, whereby we produce gardens full of beauty – you could not possibly manufacture its trees? Is it another god with God? Indeed, they are people who have deviated.

Jesus, Mary, Muhammad, the Saints, etc. Never Participated

[27:61] Who is the One who made the earth habitable, caused rivers to run through it, placed on it mountains, and created a barrier between the two waters? Is it another god with God? Indeed, most of them do not know.

[27:62] Who is the One who rescues those who become desperate and call upon Him, relieves adversity, and makes you inheritors of the earth? Is it another god with God? Rarely do you take heed.

[27:63] Who is the One who guides you in the darkness of land and sea? Who is the One who sends the winds with good news, signaling His mercy? Is it another god with God? Most exalted is God, above having any partner.

[27:64] Who is the One who initiates the creation, then repeats it? Who is the One who provides for you from the heaven and the earth? Is it another god with God? Say, “Show me your proof, if you are truthful.”

[27:65] Say, “No one in the heavens and the earth knows the future except God. They do not even perceive how or when they will be resurrected.”

Believing in the Hereafter: Great Obstacle for Most People

[27:66] In fact, their knowledge concerning the Hereafter is confused. In fact, they harbor doubts about it. In fact, they are totally heedless thereof.

[27:67] Those who disbelieved said, “After we turn into dust, and also our parents, do we get brought out?

[27:68] “We have been given the same promise in the past. These are nothing but tales from the past.”

[27:69] Say, “Roam the earth and note the consequences for the guilty.”

[27:70] Do not grieve over them, and do not be annoyed by their scheming.

[27:71] They say, “When will that promise come to pass, if you are truthful?”

[27:72] Say, “You are already suffering some of the retribution you challenge.”

[27:73] Your Lord is full of grace towards the people, but most of them are unappreciative.

[27:74] Your Lord fully knows what their chests hide, and what they declare.

[27:75] There is nothing in the heavens and the earth that is hidden (from God); everything is in a profound record.

[27:76] This Quran settles many issues for the Children of Israel; issues that they are still disputing.

[27:77] And most assuredly, it is a guide and mercy for the believers.

[27:78] Your Lord is the One who judges among them in accordance with His rules. He is the Almighty, the Omniscient.

[27:79] Therefore, put your trust in God; you are following the manifest truth.

[27:80] You cannot make the dead, nor the deaf, hear the call, if they turn away.

[27:81] Nor can you guide the blind out of their straying. The only ones who will hear you are those who believe in our revelations, and decide to be submitters.

The Computer Is The Creature*

[27:82] At the right time, we will produce for them a creature, made of earthly materials, declaring that the people are not certain about our revelations.

*27:82 (2+7+8+2 = 19) The computer was required to unveil the Quran’s mathematical miracle, and it proved that most people have discarded God’s message (see Appendices 1 & 19).

[27:83] The day will come when we summon from every community some of those who did not believe in our proofs, forcibly.

Study the Quran’s Mathematical Code

[27:84] When they arrive, He will say, “You have rejected My revelations, before acquiring knowledge about them. Is this not what you did?”

[27:85] They will incur the requital for their wickedness; they will say nothing.

[27:86] Have they not seen that we made the night for their rest, and the day lighted? These should be sufficient proofs for people who believe.

[27:87] On the day when the horn is blown, everyone in the heavens and the earth will be horrified, except those chosen by God. All will come before Him, forcibly.

Earth’s Movement: A Scientific Miracle

[27:88] When you look at the mountains, you think that they are standing still. But they are moving, like the clouds. Such is the manufacture of God, who perfected everything. He is fully Cognizant of everything you do.

The Day of Judgment

[27:89] Those who bring good works (in their records) will receive far better rewards, and they will be perfectly secure from the horrors of that day.

[27:90] As for those who bring evil works, they will be forced into Hell. Do you not get requited for what you did?

[27:91] I am simply commanded to worship the Lord of this town – He has made it a safe sanctuary – and He possesses all things. I am commanded to be a submitter.

[27:92] And to recite the Quran. Whoever is guided is guided for his own good, and if they go astray, then say, “I am simply a warner.”

[27:93] And say, “Praise be to God; He will show you His proofs, until you recognize them. Your Lord is never unaware of anything you do.”
