DNA Code and Beyond

GOD knows all the secrets in the heavens and the earth; GOD is Seer of everything you do.
Quran (49:18)

Every living organism is made of cells. The cell is the smallest living units in our body. We are made of billions of specialized cells. These cells, such as skin, brain and bone cells, work together to form organs, which make the systems of our body.

DNA is found in our cells. It is basically a long chain of molecule that contains prerecorded code for the cells. DNA is the abbreviation for Deoxyribonucleic Acid. "D" stands for Deoxyribo. "N" stands for Nucleic, because DNA was first found in the nucleus of a cell before being found in a plant cell. "A" stands for Acid because of the Phosphoric acid that is present in the chain.

“Codes” have always been used for communication from the Egyptian hieroglyphics to the English alphabet of today. The Quran is a 19-based mathematically coded message of God. It has 29 suras (chapters) that are prefixed with 14 different sets of Quranic initials: ALM, ALR, ALMR, ALMS, Q, KHYAS, S, YS, TH, TSM, TS, HM, ASQ and N. The significance of these Quranic initials remained a divinely guarded secret for 14 centuries.

Whenever there is a secret code, somebody has to decipher it so that it can be understood. There was a special group of people during World War II that tried to crack the secret

coded messages of the Nazis and the Japanese. A Muslim scientist named Dr. Rashad Khalifa was blessed by God to study the Quranic initials and to decipher the Quran's secret 19-based code 1400 years of the prophet's death. We now identify with the meaning of the verse in the Quran "Over it is 19" (74:30). Just as these people deciphered coded messages, scientists found the secret code of life, DNA.

Everything our cells do is prerecorded somehow in DNA. For example, DNA tells cells when to grow and when to die, or what color to grow our hair. We learn from the Quran:
