                                                  Numerical Mysteries of Quran


A. The Mystery of the Last Revealed Chapter of the Quran, Chapter 110 which is called Sura Al-Nasr

The last Sura revealed (meaning the 114th according to the order of revelation) to Prophet Muhammed
صلى الله عليه وسلم was Sura Al-Nasr (Triumph) (Chapter 110), but the number of this Sura in the Quran is 110.  It consists of three verses. Furthermore, this Sura consists of 19 Arabic words and the first verse consists of 19 Arabic letters.

A quick observation is that Sura 110 has 3 numbered verses and one unnumbered verse which is the opening Bamalah. If we add the number of this Sura in the Quran, meaning 110 to the total number of verses in it, we get: 110 + 3 (numbered verses) +1 (un-numbered verse) =114 which is the total number of the Suras in the Quran.

So in the last revealed Sura to the Prophet Muhammad
صلى الله عليه وسلم ,God embedded his code to confirm the total number of the verses and the Suras of the Quran.


B. The Letter Q & the Mathematical Miracle of the Quran

The Quran has 29 Suras that start with an initial, e.g. Sura 2 starts with , A,L,M, Sura 50 starts with "Q" and is called "Q", Sura 38 starts with "S" and is called "S", Sura 68 is
called Al-Qalam (The Pen) and starts with "N" and so on.

There are 14 different Arabic letters, forming 14 different sets of "Quranic initials and prefix 29 Suras: 14+ 14 + 29 = 57 ( =19 x 3).

All these initials have some mathematical relationship to number 19 somehow. I will present here "Q" as an example.

The Quranic Initial "Q" (Qaf):

There are two Suras in the Quran that has the Quranic Initial "Q" (Qaf)., Sura 42,& 50. Sura 50 is entitled "Q", prefixed with "Q" and the first verse can be translated as: "Q, and the Glorious Quran". The indication is very strong that this "Q" represents the Quran.

Here is a summary of the mathematical miracle found in the initial "Q":

(1) The frequency of occurrence of the Arabic letter
ق  ( Q ) in Sura Q (Chapter 50) is 57 (= 19 x 3)


(2) The frequency of   the Arabic letter ق  ( Q ) in the other Q-initialed Sura Al-Shura (Chapter 42) is also 57 (= 19 x 3 )


(3) Therefore, the total occurrence of the letter "Q" in the only two "Q"-initialed Suras is: 57 + 57= 114 (= 19 x 6).  This coincides with the total number of Suras in the Quran which is 114.


(4) Furthermore, the word "Quran" in Arabic is mentioned in the Quran 57 times (=19 x 3) .

(5) The Quran was described in Sura "Q" as "Majid" (Glorious), the word Majid has a gematrical (numerical) value equal to: 40+3+10+4 = 57 (=19 x 3)


(6) Sura 42 has 53 verses and 42+53=95 (= 19x5 )

(7) Sura 50 has 45 verses and 50+45=95 (= 19x5 )


(8) The number of "Q"s in all the verses numbered "19"  throughout the Quran is 76 (= 19x 4) .

Are all of these coincidences? No way !


C. Why are there 114 Chapters (Suras) in the Quran ?

The Arabic word واحد “Wahid”, which means "One" has a gematrical value of 19, where 19 is the mathematical code of the miracle of the Quran. The main message of the Quran is that “There is only one God.” God assigned these values to the letters as HE created all the languages, and the word “one” was given the value of 19 since the creation.  God knows the Quran will be its Final scripture and that it will be coded by 19. Also this is just a clue to the general principle that the mathematical structure of the Quran is related to the manifestations of God as expressed by His names.

The question can now be raised : WHY are there 114 Suras in the Quran ? Although the fact that 114 is a multiple of 19, is by itself significant, the answer that this is the reason for 114 Suras is not sufficient enough since there are other multiples of 19, say 38, 57, 76, 95, 133…etc. which could have served the same function as well. The clear and irrefutable answer to the question is found in verse 75:17

[75:17] It is (a duty) upon us (God) its gathering (or collection) and making it into Quran.

Here God says that He (using angelic forces) is responsible for the collecting of all the verses of the Quran into what is now called the Quran . The Arabic verb here for collecting or gathering is ( jama’) and the word gatherer is Jami’u . God is referred to in the Quran as Jami’u (gatherer) at least twice in the Quran: 3:9 and 4:140

[3:9] Our Lord, You will surely be the gatherer of the people on a day that is inevitable. GOD never breaks a promise.

[4:140] He has instructed you in the scripture that: if you hear GOD's revelations being mocked and ridiculed, you shall not sit with them, unless they delve into another subject. Otherwise, you will be as guilty as they are. GOD is the  (gatherer)  of the hypocrites and the disbelievers together in Hell.

Verse 3:9 says that God is the Gatherer of mankind for the day of Judgment while verse 4:140 says that He is the Gatherer of all those destined for Hell. On the other hand, in Sura 75:17 God promises to ensure the proper gathering (or collection) of the revelations of the Quran.

The gematrical value of the word  ( Jami’u = Collector or Gatherer ): 3+ 1+ 40 + 70 = 114.

As we know , there is NO coincidence. God knows since creation that He will be the Collector of the Quran, the Gatherer of the revelations and He assigned the gematical value 114 to the word (Jami’u).

Thus, the gematical value of Jami’u which is 114 is equal to the number of Suras of the Quran. Besides being the Author of the Quran, God made Himself responsible for the gathering ( or collection) of the Quran. This explains the relationship between God’s special name ( Al-Jami’u) and the number of Suras in the Quran. God Himself gives us the clue in 75:17.

Other observations related to the number 114:

(1) The 'Basmallah' (بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ ) occurs in the Quran 114 times = 19 x 6 , despite the absence of Basmallah from Sura 9. The very first verse of the Quran gives an indication of the number of Sura's in the book.

(2) Sura 110, the last chapter revealed, has three numbered verses and one un-numbered verse, i.e. Basmallah. 110 + 4 verses =114. As if Sura 110 which is the last revealed Sura reflects the total of the Suras in the Quran.

(3) The number of chapters in the Quran is 114 ( = 6 x 19) and 619 is the 114th prime number.

(4) Sura Mary (Chapter 19) is the 6th initialed Sura that was revealed. Note that the 619 is prime number and it is the 114th prime number and that 114 = 6 x 19. We all know that 114 is the number of Suras in the Quran. The word  الله (Allah) is mentioned for the first time in Sura Mary (Chapter 19) in verse 30. Note that 30 is the 19th composite number. Verse 19:30 is the 114th verse containing the word "Allah" according to the revelation order of the Suras. Number 19, the code of the miracle of the Quran is mentioned in verse 30 of Sura74.

(5) The chemical element number 114 has a magic nucleus. A magic nucleus is a highly stable one with all the shells closed. The magic numbers in nuclei are 2,8,20,28,50 and 82 as far as we know in the periodic table of elements. It is interesting to note that 2+8+20+28+50+82 = 190 (= 19 x 10 )

(6) The important phrase, "Wahdahoo La Sharika lah," (GOD ALONE, HE has no partners) has a gematrical value of 619. Number 619 is the 114th prime number and also 6 x19 =114 which is the number of Suras in the Quran.


 The Quran is indeed such an intricate system that only God is capable to authoring !
