Eat Like the Animals Eat
Cont’d from page 3
[17:44] Glorifying Him are the seven universes, the earth, and everyone in them. There is nothing that does not glorify Him, but you do not understand their glorification. He is Clement, Forgiver.
So animals are wonderful submitting creatures. But we don’t want to be like them. If we had been smart enough to reject free will and come to earth as a tree or a rock or a dog, we could be guaranteed Paradise. But we weren’t that smart. So now we have to live our lives in conscious awareness of God at all times and in all situations. Then, God willing, we can be as good in submission as the animals are.
[7:179] We have committed to Hell multitudes of jinns and humans. They have minds with which they do not understand, eyes with which they do not see, and ears with which they do not hear. They are like animals; no, they are far worse—they are totally unaware.
[25:44] Do you think that most of them hear, or understand? They are just like animals; no, they are far worse.
19 Code in the Quran:
Some Simple, but Extraordinary Facts
The Quran is God's everlasting message to the world—the Final Testament. It is mathematically structured to prove that it is in fact unaltered word of God. There is a whole sura (chapter) regarding the numerical code in the Quran. It is Sura 74 and is entitled the "Hidden Secret." As we know now, the mathematical structure of the Quran based on the number 19 had remained hidden for 14 centuries before it was unveiled 1406 (19x74) years after the revelation of the Quran, in 1974 A.D. None of these are coincidences, nor is it a coincidence that Sura 74 is the only sura in which the number 19 is mentioned. It is part of God’s awesome arrangement for us to appreciate His wisdom. God is the one who controls everything.
In Sura 74 God informs us that if anyone claims that the Ouran is man-made (verse 25), He will prove to him otherwise by the number 19 (verse 30). God says that this number serves five functions in verse 31: a) to disturb the disbelievers, b) to convince the Christians and Jews that this is a divine scripture, c) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, d) to remove all traces of doubts from the hearts of Christians, Jews as well as the believers, e) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts and the disbelievers. They will say, "what did God mean by this allegory?"
God mentions in Sura 74, verse 35 that this is one of the great miracles.
The first verse in the Ouran, known as the "Basmalah" consists of 19 letters.
Every word in this verse is mentioned in the Ouran in multiples of 19.
a) The first word (Ism) is mentioned in the Ouran 19 times.
b)The second word (Allah = God) is mentioned in the Ouran 2698 times, or 19x142.
c) The third word (Al-Rahman=Most Gracious) is mentioned in' the Ouran 57 times, or 19x3.
d) The fourth word (Al-Raheem=Most Merciful) is mentioned in the Ouran 114 times, or 19x6.
The Ouran consists of 114 chapters (suras) or 19x6.
The famous first revelation (96:1-5) consists of 19 words.
Sura 96, first in the chronological order, consists of 19 verses.
Sura 96 consists of 304 Arabic letters and 304 equals to 19x16.
The famous last revelation (110:1-3) consists of 19 words
The total number of verses in the Ouran is 6346, or 19x334. There are 6234 numbered verses and 112 unnumbered verses of Basmalahs, and 6234 + 112 = 6346. Note that 6+3+4+6= 19.
