## Miracle of 19

**"Over it are nineteen. And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith ..." ( Quran: 74/30-31)**

Another mathematical miracle of the Quran is the manner in which the number 19 is numerologically encoded in verses. This number is stressed in the words of the Qur'an: "There are nineteen in charge of it." (Quran: 74/30), and is encoded in various places in the Book. Some examples of this can be listed as follows:

- The "Basmallah" consists of 19 letters.

- The Quran consists of 114 (19 x 6) Suras.

- The first Sura to be revealed (Sura 96) is the 19th from the end.

- The first verses of the Quran to be revealed are the first five verses of Sura 96 and the total number of words in these verses is 19.

- The first Sura to be revealed, Surat al-'Alaq, consists of 19 verses and 285 (19 x 15) letters.

- Surat an-Nasr, the final Sura to be revealed, consists of a total of 19 words. Furthermore, the first verse of Surat an-Nasr, which speaks of the help of Allah(God), contains 19 letters.

- The sum of all the occurrences of the name "Allah" in all the verses whose numbers are multiples of 19 (i.e., verses 19, 38, 57, 76, etc.) is 133, or 19 x 7.

- The "abjad" value of the word "wahd" meaning "one" is 19. This word is used with various other words in the Quran, such as one door, one variety of food. It is used 19 times together with the name "Allah."
The total of the Sura and verse numbers of the occasions when the word "wahd" appears 19 times is 361: (19 x 19).

- The Arabic word "wahdahu" meaning "worship only Allah(God)" appears in the verses 7:70, 39:45, 40:12, 40:84 and 60:4. When these figures are added up without numbers being repeated, the resulting total is 361 (19 x 19).

- The number of verses between the first initial letters (Alif, Lam, Mim; Surat al-Baqara 1) and the final initial letters (Nun; Surat al-Qalam 1) is 5,263 (19 x 277).

- There are 38 (19 x 2) Suras without initial letters between the first Sura which has initial letters and the last to have them.

- The word "Rahman" (All-Merciful) appears 57 (19 x 3) times in the Quran.

- Thirty different numbers are mentioned in the Quran.
The total of these numbers (without taking repetitions into account) is 162,146. This is 19 x 8,534:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 19 +20 + 30 + 40 + 50 + 60 + 70 + 80 + 99 + 100 + 200 + 300 + 1,000 + 2,000 + 3,000 + 5,000 + 50,000 + 100,000 = 162,146 (19 x 8,534).

In addition to these thirty numbers, the Quran also refers to eight fractions: 1/10, 1/8, 1/6, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 2/3. The Quran thus contains a total of 38 (19 x 2) different numbers.

- The Sura from the beginning to possess 19 verses is Surat al-Infitar. Another feature of this Sura is that its final word is "Allah." At the same time, this is the 19th appearance of the name "Allah" from the end.

- The abjad value of the word "Majeed," used for the Quran, in the first verse of Surah Qaf is 57 (19 x 3). The total number of letters "Qaf" in this sura is also 57.

- When we add together the number of times that the letter "Qaf" appears in the Quran, we reach a total of 798 (19 x 42). Forty-two is the number of another Sura with "Qaf" among its initial letters.

- The letter "Nun" appears at the beginning of only the 68th Sura. The total number of times it appears in that Sura is 133 (19 x 7).

- The letters "Ya" and "Sin" appear at the beginning of Surah Ya Sin. The letter "Sin" appears 48 times in Surah Ya Sin and the letter "Ya" 237 times. The total of these letters is 285 (19 x 15).

- Only one Sura, the seventh, begins with the initial letters "Alif, Lam, Mim, Sad." The letter "Alif" appears in this Sura 2,529 times, the letter "Lam" 1,530 times, the letter "Mim" 1,164 times and the letter "Sad" 97 times. These four letters thus appear a total of 2,529 + 1,530 + 1,164 + 97 times, or 5,320 (19 x 280) times.

- The letters "Alif", "Lam" and "Mim" are the most frequently used letters in Arabic. They appear together at the beginning of six Suras: numbers 2, 3, 29, 30, 31 and 32. The number of times these three letters appear in each of these six Suras is a multiple of 19. In order: 9,899 (19 x 521), 5,662 (19 x 298), 1,672 (19 x 88), 1,254 (19 x 66) and 817 (19 x 43). The total number of times all these three letters appear in the six Suras is 19,874 (19 x 1,046).

- The initial letters "Alif", "Lam" and "Ra" appear in Suras 10, 11, 12, 14 and 15. The total number of times these letters appear in these Suras is 2,489 (19 x 131), 2,489 (19 x 131), 2,375 (19 x 125), 1,197 (19 x 63) and 912 (19 x 48).

- The frequency with which the initial letters "Alif", "Lam", "Mim" and "Ra" appear is 1,482 (19 x 78) in total. The letter "Alif" appears 605 times, "Lam" 480 times, "Mim" 260 times and "Ra" 137 times.

- The initial letters "Qaf", "Ha", "Ya", "'Ayn" and "Sad" appear in only one Sura, the 19th. The letter "Qaf" appears 137 times in this Sura, "Ha" 175 times, "Ya" 343 times, "'Ayn" 117 times and "Sad" 26 times. The total number of appearances of these five letters is 137 + 175 + 343 + 117 + 26 = 798 (19 x 42).

- The word "atee" (obey!) appears 19 times,

- The words "Abd" (servant), "abid" (a person who serves) and "abudu" (worship) appear a total of 152 (19 x 8) times,

- The numerical abjad values of some of the names of Allah(God) given below are also multiples of 19

- Al-Wahid (The One) 19 (19 x 1)

- Aj-Jami (The Gatherer) 114 (19 x 6)

- The 96th Sura, the first revealed, comes 19 before the end. It consists of 19 verses and contains a total of 285 letters (19 x 15). The first five verses of the revelation contain 76 (19 x 4) letters.

- Halley's Comet passes through the Solar System once every 76 years (19 x 4).

** "Over it are nineteen. And We have not made the wardens of the fire others than angels, and We have not made their number but as a trial for those who disbelieve, that those who have been given the book may be certain and those who believe may increase in faith, and those who have been given the book and the believers may not doubt, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the unbelievers may say: What does Allah(God) mean by this parable? Thus does Allah(God) make err whom He pleases, and He guides whom He pleases, and none knows the hosts of your Lord but He Himself; and this is naught but a reminder to the mortals." ** (Quran: 74/30-31)
