7+2+2+8 = 19

…He has counted the numbers of all things (72:28)

The Quran is characterized by a unique phenomenon never found in any human authored book. Every element of the Quran is mathematically composed based on the number 19: the suras, the verses, the words, the number of certain letters, the number of words from the same root, the number of occurrence of key words and statements and many other elements of the Quran besides its content. Thus the believers realize that not a single sura, verse, word, number or even a letter in the Quran is out of God’s control.

God designed and perfected the Quran in the Arabic language. He sent His final message to the world with an incontrovertible proof of divinity. The Quran’s literary excellence reinforced with its mathematical composition is beyond imitation by any of His creatures, even all humans and jinns

put together. Therefore, one of the major functions of the Quran's mathematical composition is to guard every letter and every aspect of the Quran. Thus, the believers are assured that there is no human intervention, and no falsehood in the Quran. It is a protected book by its Designer as promised:

No falsehood could enter it, in the past or in the future; a revelation from a Most Wise, Praiseworthy. [41:42]

Any letter, word, statement, verse or any number used in the Quran, —where, how, when and how many were used—is deliberate, and not by coincidence. God told us in the Quran that He has counted the numbers of all things. He used this statement in verse 72:28. Note that the sum of the digits of the verse adds up to 19 (7+2+2+8 = 19).

The Arabic Word “Adda” (Count)

The word “number” in Arabic (‘Adad) comes from the root word “Adda.” God used this word in all its forms in the whole Quran 57 times, and 57 is 19 x 3.

Furthermore, the gematrical value of the verb “Adda” (count) is 74, and 74 is the Sura where God mentions the number 19, a prime number and the foundation upon which the mathematical miracle is built. Is it a coincidence? Not with God.

In 74:31, right after the number 19 is mentioned in verse 30, God used the Arabic word “Eddatahum” (their numbers). The gematrical or numerical value of this word (ed-datahum) is 619. The number 619 is a unique number in that its index is 114 (which means that the 114th prime number is 619).
