Numerical Miracles of Quran
Dear Mr. Burhanbhait,
I have just recd this email from a friend and would like to find out facts whether these are correct or not together with Ayaat and suraah if possible.
Pls reply at your very earliest because this is very important for us to know.
Hello, everyone! these are just a few miracles of the holy Quran i thought i should share with u all.
A Well Known Muslim Doctor discovered some verses in the Holy
Quran that mention one thing is equal to another, i.e. man is equal to women.
Although this makes sense grammatically, the astonishing fact is that the
number of times the word man appears in the Quran is 24, and the number of
times the word woman appears is also 24. Therefore not only is this phrase
correct in the grammatical sense but also true mathematically (24 = 24).
Upon further analysis of various other verses, he discovered that this is consistent throughout the whole Quran, where it says one thing is like
another. See below for some astonishing results:-
The word number of times mentioned in Arabic Quran:
Dunia (one name for life) 115
Aakhirat (one name for the lifeafter) 115
Malaikat (angels) 88
Shaytan (Satan) 88
Life 145 Death 145
Benefit 50 Corrupt 50
People 50 Messengers 50
Eblees (king of devils) 11 Seek refuge from eblees 11 .
Museebah (calamity) 75 Thanks 75
Spending (sadaqah) 73 Satisfaction 73
people who are Mislead 17 Dead people 17
Muslimeen 41 Jihad 41
Gold 8 Easy life 8
Magic 60 Fitnah (dissuasion, misleading) 60
Zakat (taxes Muslims pay for the poor) 32 Barakah (increasing or
Blessings of a wealth) 32
Mind 49 Noor (light) 49
Tongue 25 Sermon 25
Desire 8 Fear 8 Speaking publicly 18 Publicizing 18
Hardship 114 Patience 114 Muhammad 4 Sharee*ah (Muhammad's teachings) 4
Man 24 Woman 24
And amazingly enough have a look how many times the following words appear: Salat (Prayer ) 5
Month 12 Day 365
sea 32 Land 13 Sea + land = 32 + 13 = 45 % sea = 32/45 * 100 % = 71.11111111 % land= 13/45 * 100 % = 28.88888889 Total = 100.00
Modern Science has only recently proven that the water covers 71.111 % of the earth, while the land covers 28.889 %. Is this a coincidence? Who taught prophet Mohammad (PBUH) all this? Allah,the All Mighty taught him this.
As the Quran tells us: (This is) a Book, the Verses whereof are perfected (in every sphere of Knowledge, etc.), and then explained in detail from One (Allh),who is All-Wise and Well-Acquainted (with all things).' (Quran 11:1)
The above is from the series of the scientific miracles in Quraan, May ALLAH Bless us all.
Numerical Miracles of Quran
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear Brother in Islam, the Quran is indeed a miracle for all times and ages. The Glorious Quran is the very Word of the Lord of the Worlds, and is perfect in every aspect.
Glorious Quran is an ocean of knowledge, and the more one dives into this
It is also difficult to check all the above words of the Holy Quran, because in the Arabic language each word has a root word and many words are derived from that root word.
For example, take the word ilm or knowledge. From this root word ilm, other words can be derived such as Aleem (All Knowing), alim (scholar), yahlamoon (they know), etc. Thus it would be impossible to determine which derived word is chosen to come to the specific number, and which one is left out.
And if one just takes a glance at the list provided, there are a few obvious errors. The writer has said that the word salat is mentioned five times! This is obviously incorrect, as the word salat is mentioned in excess of 38 times in the Glorious Quran! The writer has said that the word land appears only 13 times in the Quran; whereas the truth is that the word land is mentioned in excess of 80 times in the Quran! The writer has said that the word fear appears only 8 times in the Quran; whereas the truth is that the word fear is mentioned in excess of 150 times in the Quran!
Thus, obviously, it seems that the writer has either not done a proper research, or has used a different criteria for choosing his words. The above list is not absolutely accurate; and just because it is not accurate does not diminish the miracles of this Glorious Book.
But brother, we must realize that the Quran was not revealed to man to figure out its miracles, nor was it revealed to write each word of the Quran and then see which word matches which word in its number of repetitions. If one has done the numerical additions, and it has increased his faith and conviction in the miracles of the Divine Words, there is no harm. But the reason Allah Subhanah revealed the Quran was that it is supposed to be accepted as a perfect guidance to mankind.
Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat 185
"Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of CLEAR teachings which show the right way and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood."
Because this Glorious Book are the very Words of our Lord and Creator, they are obviously overflowing with miracles. Many miracles are known to man and modern science; and innumerable others are still unknown.
Our duty as believers is to believe, accept, and unconditionally obey each and every command of the Glorious Quran; which is indeed a perfect guidance for all mankind.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
