# GOD

## Possessor of the Highest Degree

 God Almighty placed His mathematical miracle in the Quran for His true believers to see and to assure them that the Quran is His word. God provided us with various aspects of the miracle within the mathematical miracle itself. This is a report on one simple observation on the numerical structure of the Quran. Yet, this seemingly simple miracle is a strong proof for the total control of God Almighty on every letter and word in His Book, which He calls the best hadith. Only ONCE in the whole Quran that has 114 suras and 6346 verses did God Almighty choose to call Himself “Possessor of the HIGHEST degree.” Actually the whole verse goes like this: (God) Possessor of the highest degree, and Ruler of the whole dominion. He sends inspiration, bearing His commands, to whomever He chooses from among His servants, to warn about the Day of Summoning. [40:15] The expression “Possessor of the highest degree” is Rafii Al-Daragat in Arabic. The Arabic word Rafii means “the Highest” in English. The word Daragat means “degree.” What is the highest degree possible in geometry? As we all know it is 360. Is it then a coincidence that the gematrical (numerical) value of the word rafii in Arabic is equal to 360? This means God is the possessor of the highest degree, the 360 degrees. There is no higher degree than this. Does this tell us something? God, Possessor of the highest degree, is in control of every letter and word in His book. Where did the numerical value of the word “Rafii” come from? The word Rafii consists of four Arabic letters, Raa, Faa, Yaa, and Ain. The numerical values of these letters are: Raa = 200, Faa =80, Yaa =10, Ain = 70. The whole word adds to 360, where 200 + 80 + 10 + 70 = 360. Continued on page 2
