My sLory began ln Lhe early '90s when l meL a young man who never reglsLered Lo Lhe whole
concepL of Cod and rellglon l was born and ralsed a Musllm my enLlre llfe and always belleved
LhaL Lhe Poly Cur'an was a 8ook senL down from Cod AlmlghLy Lo all of manklnd 8ecause of
my upbrlnglng ln a Musllm envlronmenL l have Lo say LhaL meeLlng someone who dldn'L
belleve ln Cod was a raLher lnLrlgulng albelL awkward experlence! neverLheless we slowly
became good frlends
l dldn'L conslder myself very rellglous and was cerLalnly no preacher! naLurally however our
conversaLlons Lended Lo veer ln Lhe dlrecLlon of Lhe Cur'an's mlracles and Lhe noLlon LhaL Lhls

l would show hlm verses from Lhe Cur'an LhaL had Lruly moved me as l had memorlsed Lhem
malnly because of Lhelr beauLlful meanlng and wonderful eloquence AfLerwards l would ask
hlm wheLher any 'manmade' books were Lhls eloquenL ln speech and conLalned such deep
meanlng
Pls responses were lmmedlaLe as he argued for lnsLance LhaL old Arablc poeLry was of greaLer
eloquence Pe sald LhaL old Lngllsh llLeraLure such as LhaL of Shakespeare was also more
eloquenL And Lo close Lhe curLaln on Lhls sub[ecL of llngulsLlc excellence he recommended LhaL
l'd read Lhe saylngs of some of Lhe greaL lndlan rulers of Lhe pasL because accordlng Lo hlm ln

1o Lhls l had no response Cne Lhlng l knew for cerLaln was LhaL many Arab (and nonArab)

All l could Lhlnk of now was Lhe language of numbers as l LhoughL of Lhe few numerlc

Lhe number 19 and LhaL lL represenLed a Lruly unlque and lnlmlLable mlracle AlLhough whaL l

The number 19 and the Qur'an's first verse
l opened Lhe flrsL page of Lhe Poly Cur'an and showed hlm Lhe very flrsL verse

114 = 6 x 19
l Lhen asked Could Lhls connecLlon wlLh Lhe number 19 have been slmply colncldence? Cr dld
someone lnLenLlonally organlse and perfecL Lhese numbers?"
lor Lhe flrsL Llme ln several weeks l sensed slgns of heslLaLlon and surprlse on my frlend's face
perhaps lL was because he saw Lhe resulL wlLh hls own eyes l could noL help buL smlle and

8uL afLer a few momenLs of reflecLlon he Lold me lf you prove Lo me LhaL Lhe entire Poly

!ART 1
SOME BASI GUIDELINES
e begin by answering important questions about the Qur'an's numbers, and respond
to some criticism that has targeted this topic.
Among these questions are: hat are the benefits, anyway, of the numeric miracle of
the Qur'an, for both Muslims and non-Muslims? hat is the story of Rashad Khalifa, the
man who claimed both prophethood and the discovery of a mathematical system in the
Qur'an? Does the mathematical technique known as Arabic gematria, or the Abjad
numerals, hold any merit? hat about the various recitations of the Qur'an, and do they
contain a numeric miracle? hat makes the numeric miracle, a miracle?
In this first part of the book, we will establish some important guidelines that must be
followed when extracting numbers from the Holy Qur'an. e will also demonstrate that
we have adhered to these guidelines, and to a sound scientific method that has been
followed throughout this entire book. Finally, we will end with a brief, yet captivating
numeric example from Surat al-Kahf (Chapter: The Cave).

The Qur'anic and mathematicaI basis for arranging the Qur'an's numbers
Many researchers lnLo Lhe Cur'anlc numbers have aLLempLed Lo exLracL a numerlc mlracle from
Lhe Cur'an and mosL of Lhese sLudles have concenLraLed on adding leLLers and words
LogeLher
8uL maLhemaLlcs has revealed LhaL more complex meLhods can be employed such as poslLlonal

1o explaln Lhls concepL we sLarL by saylng LhaL every number ls composed of digits and every

lllusLraLe [usL how mlraculous Lhe Cur'an ls
AlLhough we wlll come across cerLaln arrangemenLs LhaL do produce mulLlples of 7 when

asLoundlng loglc Arranglng numbers ln Lhls manner preserves Lhe locaLlon of each word wlLhln
a verse ln oLher words lf Lhe order of any word had shlfLed Lhe resulLlng number would
auLomaLlcally change and no longer become a mulLlple of 7
Cod AlmlghLy has organlsed Lhe words of Pls 8ook ln a speclflc order whlch cannoL and musL
noL be edlLed 1herefore we oughL Lo sLudy Lhe numbers LhaL acLually represenL Lhese words ln
a manner whlch safeguards Lhelr exacL order lnslde a verse !usL as every word ln Lhe Cur'an
has a speclflc place so should every number
1he advanLages LhaL arranglng numbers has over addlng Lhem are plenLy Cne beneflL ls LhaL
when we arrange Lhe leLLer counL of each word ln a verse for lnsLance we are securely
fasLenlng Lhe poslLlon of each word ln LhaL verse buL Lhls proLecLlon lnsLanLly dlsappears when
we merely add Lhe leLLers of every word LogeLher
lurLhermore when we arrange Lhe leLLer counL of each word of a verse lnLo a slngle number
we can clearly see Lhe componenLs of each word ln LhaL number whereas Lhese can no longer

In this part, we explore some of the mysteries of the number 7 in both the Holy Qur'an
and the Sunnah (i.e. Teachings) of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and understand
why and how God Almighty has given this number such high regard.
e will reflect upon some of the wonders of this number in Allah's Book, and witness
how the Qur'an's letters, words, Verses and Chapters come into perfect synchronisation
with this number in ways that challenge imagination.
e will also reflect upon certain specific Qur'anic words and Verses on their own, and
discover relationships and consistencies that are always in harmony with the number 7.

1he lasL Llme Lhe number ls menLloned ls ln Lhe followlng verse
And (have We noL) bullL over you Lhe seven flrmamenLs
Alnaba' 712
now we observe Lhe followlng facLs LhaL demonsLraLe a mysLerlous accuracy beLween Lhe
above Lwo verses
Fact 1
1he number of ChapLers from SuraL Al8aqarah where 7 ls flrsL clLed Lo SuraL Alnaba' where lL
ls lasL clLed ls 77 ChapLers a mulLlple of 7
77 = 11 x 7
So havlng [usL conflrmed LhaL Lhe number of ChapLers ln beLween Lhe flrsL and lasL clLaLlon of 7
divides by 7 we Lackle more senslLlve grounds by asklng WhaL abouL Lhe number of Verses?
Fact 2
lf we counL Lhe number of verses from Lhe verse where 7 ls flrsL menLloned (29Lh verse of
SuraL Al8aqarah) unLll Lhe lasL verse where 7 ls menLloned (12Lh verse of SuraL Alnaba') we
flnd Lhe number of Verses Lo be preclsely 49 And Lhls ls a perfecL mulLlple of 7
5649 = 807 x 7
So far we have dlscovered LhaL both Lhe number of ChapLers and verses beLween Lhe flrsL and
lasL repeLlLlon of Lhe number 7 are exacL mulLlples of 7 8uL Lhere's more Lo come
Fact 3
1he number of verses from Lhe very beglnnlng of SuraL Al8aqarah (1he ChapLer where 7 ls flrsL
menLloned) unLll Lhe very end of SuraL Alnaba' (1he ChapLer where 7 ls lasL menLloned) ls 70
a mulLlple of 7
5705 = 815 x 7
So noL only are Lhe numbers of ChapLers and verses Lurnlng ouL Lo be mulLlples of 7 buL don'L
forgeL LhaL Lhe number 7 ls Lhe very sub[ecL of our dlscusslon because we are looklng aL where
Lhls number ls used ln Lhe Cur'an!

Fact 4
1he number of verses from Lhe beglnnlng of SuraL Al8aqarah up Lo Lhe verse whlch precedes
Lhe one menLlonlng Lhe number 7 ln LhaL very ChapLer ls 2 a mulLlple of 7 2 4 x 7 1hls
makes perfecL sense of course because Lhe verse whlch menLlons 7 ls Lhe 29Lh verse of SuraL
Al8aqarah meanlng LhaL 2 verse precede lL
ln oLher words when we counL Lhe number of verses from Lhe flrsL verse Lo Lhe verse LhaL
comes dlrecLly before Cod's saylng
It is He ho hath created for you all things that are on earth; Moreover His design
comprehended the heavens, for He gave order and perfection to the seven firmaments;
and of all things He hath perfect knowledge.
Al8aqarah 229
we flnd LhaL Lhere are exacLly 2 verses 1haL ls regardlng Lhe flrsL Llme 7 ls menLloned ln Lhe
Poly Cur'an
Whlch begs Lhe quesLlon WhaL abouL Lhe lasL Llme Lhls number ls ever menLloned ln Lhe
Cur'an? ls Lhere any slmllar arrangemenL Lhere?
1he answer ls yes ln facL Lhe correspondlng arrangemenL ls so beauLlful LhaL lL lnvolves Lhe
same number 2 lf we counL Lhe number of verses from Lhe verse comlng dlrecLly after Lhe
12Lh verse of SuraL Alnaba' (where 7 ls lasL clLed) unLll Lhe very end of SuraL Alnaba' we flnd
LhaL Lhere are preclsely 2 verses!
1haL ls noL all however now we ask WhaL abouL Lhe number of verses from Lhe very
beglnnlng of Lhe Cur'an Lo Lhe very end of SuraL Alnaba' Lhe ChapLer whlch lasL menLlons Lhe
number 7?
Fact 5
CounLlng Lhe number of verses from Lhe flrsL verse ln Lhe Poly Cur'an Lo Lhe lasL verse ln SuraL
Alnaba we flnd LhaL Lhere are 712 verses a number whlch perfecLly dlvldes by 7
5712 = 816 x 7
Fact 6
llnally lL ls lnLeresLlng Lo noLe LhaL ln Lhe Arablc language Lhe number 7 ln word form (le
seven) can be wrlLLen ln several dlfferenL ways dependlng on Lhe conLexL of a glven passage

So far, we've witnessed precision that extends as far as individual words examined on
their own, so just what could be found if all the words of the Qur'an were similarly
analysed? Scientific reasoning suggests that such numerical coincidence can only exist
in a book when the author actually makes the effort of arranging his words in a specific
manner.

Qur'an, is communicated from right to left, unlike English, for instance, which reads from
left to right. This means that one begins reading the Chapters of the Qur'an from the
right to the left. In accordance with this rule, we arrange the numbers from right to left,
exactly as they appear in the Qur'an.

!ART 3
THE NUMERI MIRALE OF THE FIRST VERSE IN THE QUR'AN: THE
"BASMALA"
In this part, we experience a divine miracle in four words: the verse most recited in the
life of every Muslim. Before eating, drinking, and reciting the Qur'an; before any activity
for that matter, Muslims recite this verse as an introduction to their daily lives.
It is the first verse of the Qur'an, commonly known as the "Basmala":
~ ' = ' - = '
ln Lhe name of Cod MosL Craclous MosL Merclful
AllaLlhah 11
&sing the unequivocal language of numbers, we will witness how every single letter in
this verse carries with it a divine miracle, proving that such a verse could not have been
the work of man.
e finally ask: Besides the Qur'an, does any book carry so many hidden numeric
accuracies within its words? Can anyone realistically respond to the challenge of the
Qur'an and produce a book, even a chapter, like it?

!ART 4
THE NUMERI MIRALE OF THE FIRST HA!TER IN THE QUR'AN:
"AL-FATIHAH" THE O!ENING
After exploring the vast numeric miracles of the Basmala verse, which is found, among
other chapters, in Surat Al-Fatihah, we now take on board this very chapter in its
entirety, in an attempt to unlock the breathtaking numeric secrets it possesses.
"Al-Fatihah" means The pening, and most fittingly, it is the opening chapter of the Holy
Qur'an, and a chapter like no other, as the Prophet (pbuh) himself swore that God
Almighty did not reveal any chapter which resembles Al-Fatihah in any Holy Scripture,
be it the ld Testament, the New Testament, or the Holy Qur'an itself.
Having said this, we now embark on a magnificent journey with this captivating, albeit
very short, chapter, but using one of the languages of our 21st century: the simple
language of numbers. The numeric patterns we are about to witness will not fail to
fascinate, and remind us of the unintelligible wonders of this profound book that is the
Holy Qur'an. This system of numeric perfection is but a concrete declaration that no
other than God Almighty could have designed such a book and revealed its message to
humanity.

HA!TER EQUALLING ONE THIRD OF THE QUR'AN
After witnessing something of the numeric secrets of Al-Fatihah, the Qur'an's greatest
chapter, we arrive at a chapter which equals a third of the Qur'an in reward. In this small
chapter is a statement of God Almighty's supremacy and uniqueness.
e embark on a journey which involves God's Beautiful Names and how they are
reflected in this chapter, and admire how every letter in this wonderful chapter is crafted
with such careful precision so as to produce a miracle not in meaning or language
alone, but a numeric miracle that is founded on the number 7, bearing witness to the
Greatness of its Creator.

never write with such a plan in mind anyway and that the Prophet Muhammad (peace

piece of literature is literally impossible.

!ART 6
IN EVERY VERSE, AND EVERY WORD, LIES A MIRALE
In this part, we discover new truths into the numeric system underlying the Holy
Qur'an's magnificent letters. e will yet again prove, through the language of numbers,
that every verse carries with it an astounding numeric miracle that deserves pondering
and reflection.
e will select different verses from across the Holy Qur'an in an attempt to show, by
way of example, that God Almighty has deposited in each of His verses a number (or
more!) that is a multiple of 7: a tangible indication that no human can replicate a verse,
(even a word, as we will show!) similar to any in the Qur'an.
Indeed, one of the sheer wonders of this Book is that we find a miracle in each verse,
and often in segments of verses, even in mere words, and that is what we will attempt to
illustrate in the pages to follow.

!ART 7
A QUR'ANI MIRALE IN 3 LETTERS
Among the real mysteries of the Holy Qur'an are those seemingly random letters found
at the forefront of about one quarter of the chapters of the Qur'an. That being said, has
the age arrived where we finally discover at least some of the secrets behind these
'special' letters? Can the language of numbers reveal some of their marvels?
Although scholars have never been able to fully explain the meaning behind these
letters, most have appropriately given their opinion on the matter by saying, "God knows
best!". Indeed, they did not discourage reflecting upon these letters and researching
them. And as such, we have undertaken a detailed study into the arrangement and
repetition of these mystifying letters, only to discover that underlying them is a most
profound miracle of numbers.
In this part is an abundance of numeric illustrations depicting the relationship of these
letters with the number 7, which is the basis of the these letters' numeric system and the
foundation of the numeric miracle in general. This part is also a response to any claims
that the Holy Qur'an contains meaningless letters, because the numeric system behind
the special letters is clear evidence of their inimitability, in today's age of numbers and
information.

Lhe Poly Cur'an was revealed ln a perlod of Llme well before any sophlsLlcaLed sLudy of
