The Quran’s Mathematical CompositionOne of the Great Miracles (74:35)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 and variety of divine names, the unique spelling of certain words, the absence or deliberate alteration of certain letters within certain words, and many other elements of the Quran besides its content. There are two major facets of the Quran’s mathematical system: (1) The mathematical literary composition, and (2) The mathematical structure involving the numbers of suras and verses. Because of this comprehensive mathematical coding, the slightest distortion of the Quran’s text or physical arrangement is immediately exposed Like the Quran itself, the Quran’s mathematical coding ranges from the very simple, to the very complex. The Simple Facts are those observations that can be ascertained without using any tools. The complex facts require the assistance of a calculator or a computer.

Please remember that the following facts refer to the original Arabic text, although some can be verified without the Arabic: The first verse (1:1), known as “Basmalah,” consists of 19 letters. The Quran consists of 114 suras, which is 19 x 6. The total number of verses in the Quran is 6346, or ....19 x 334. [6234 numbered verses & 112 unnumbered verses (Basmalahs) 6234+112 = 6346] The Basmalah occurs 114 times, despite its conspicuous absence from Sura 9 (it occurs twice in Sura 27) and 114 = 19x6. From the missing Basmalah of Sura 9 to the extra Basmalah of Sura 27, there are precisely 19 suras. It follows that the total of the sura numbers from 9 to 27 (9+10+11+12+...+26+27) is 342, or This total (342) also equals the number of words between the two Basmalahs of Sura 27, and 342 = 19 x 18. The famous first revelation (96:15) consists of 19 words. This 19worded first revelation consists of 76 letters. 19 x 4. Sura 96, first in the chronological sequence, consists of 19 verses. This first chronological sura is placed atop the last 19 suras.

Sura 96 consists of 304 Arabic letters, and 304 equals 19 x 16. The last revelation (Sura 110) consists of 19 words. The first verse of the last revelation (110:1) consists of 19 letters. 14 different Arabic letters, form 14 different sets of “Quranic initials” (such as A.L.M. of 2:1), and prefix 29 suras. These numbers add up to 14+14+29 = 57 = 19 x 3. The total of the 29 sura numbers where the Quranic Initials occur is 2+3+7+...+50+68 = 822, and 822+14 (14 sets of initials) equals 836, or 19 x 44. Between the first initialed sura (Sura 2) and the last initialed sura (Sura 68) there are 38 uninitialed suras 19 x 2. Between the first and last initialed sura there are 19 sets of alternating “initialed” and “uninitialed” suras. The Quran mentions 30 different numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 19, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 99, 100, 200, 300, 1000, 2000, 3000, 5000, 50,000, & 100,000. The sum of these numbers is 162146, which equals 19 x 8534. This is a condensed summary of the Simple Facts.
