##### Tampering With the Word of God

##### Part 2

[47] Sura 9 consists of 127 verses,and 127 consists of 3 digits. Let us look at all the suras whose number of verses consists of 3 digits; these are suras 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 23, 26, and 37. Their verse numbers are 286, 200, 176, 120, 165, 206, 127, 109, 123, 111, 128, 111, 110, 135, 112, 118, 227, and 182, respectively. By taking the last digit in each number of verses, and adding up these digits, we get 6+0+6+0+5+ 6+7+9+ 3+ 1+8+ 1+0+5+2+8+7+2 = 76 = 19x4.

If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the last digit in its number of verses would be 9 instead of 7, and the total of last digits would be 78 instead of 76, and this phenomenon would disappear.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Last Digit |
---|---|---|

6 | 165 | 5 |

9 | 127 | 7 |

10 | 109 | 9 |

11 | 123 | 3 |

17 | 111 | 1 |

38 (19x2) |

[48] Let us look at the list of suras shown in Item 47 above. Since the number of verses in Sura 9 is an odd number, let us now consider the odd-numbered verse numbers. There are 8 suras with a 3-digit, odd number of verses: Suras 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 17, 20, and 26. Their numbers of verses are 165, 127, 109, 123, 111, 111, 135, & 227.

The last digits in these numbers of verses are 5, 7, 9, 3, 1, 1, 5, and 7, respectiv- ely, and the sum of these digits is 38, or 19x2. Obviously, if Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, its last digit would be 9, not 7, and the sum of the last digits would be 40, not a multiple of 19. The detailed data are shown in Table 31. Thus, we are getting more and more specific, as we zoom in on the last digit in the number of verses.

Sura No. | No. of Verses |
---|---|

9 | 127 |

11 | 123 |

17 | 111 |

--- | |

361 (19x19) |

[49] Let us continue to work with the same group of suras of Items 47 and 48. Since Sura 9 is an odd-numbered sura, let us now remove all the even-numbered suras from the list of suras shown in Item 47. Now we have odd-numbered suras, with odd- numbered verses. There are only three such suras in the whole Quran: 9, 11, and 17. Their numbers of verses are 127, 123, and 111 (Table 32). If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, this remarkable phenomenon would have been destroyed.

[50] Let us continue to work with the three suras listed in Item 49. These are all the suras in the Quran whose number is odd (like Sura 9), their number of verses consists of 3 digits (like Sura 9), and their number of verses is also odd (like Sura 9).

As shown in Table 32, the verse numbers of these 3 suras are 127, 123, and 111. Just add the individual digits, and you get 1 + 2 + 7 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 1 + 1=19.

Obviously, this phenomenon depends on the now proven truth that Sura 9 consists of 127 verses. If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the only suras in the Quran that possess the above stated qualities would have added up to 1+2+9+1+2+3+1+1+1 = 21. In other words, this important component of the Quran's mathematical code would have disappeared.

[51] There are three suras (1) whose numbers are odd, (2) their numbers of verses are odd, and (3) the number of verses consists of 3 digits. They are Suras: 9, 11, and 17 (see Items 48 through 50 for the flow of this point). Just add the individual digits that make up the three sura numbers, and you get 9+1+1+1+7=19.

[52] The number 129 is divisible by 3. If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses as the distorters claimed, then it would be (1) an odd-numbered sura that (2) consists of a 3-digit number of verses, (3) the number of verses is odd, and (4) the number of verses is divisible by 3. There are only two suras in the whole Quran that possess these qualities: Sura 11 with 123 verses, and Sura 17 with 111 verses. The sum of digits of both sura numbers and the numbers of verses comes to 1+1+1+2+3+1+7+1+1+1 = 19. This can be observed only if Sura 9 consists of 127 verses.

[53] Sura 9 is (1) odd-numbered, (2) its number of verses is odd, (3) its number of verses ends with the digit "7," (4) its number of verses is a prime number, and (5) the sura number is divisible by 3 & 9. The only two suras that possess these qualities are: Sura 9 (127 verses), and Sura 45 (37 verses). Just add the digits you see:

#### 9+1+2+7=19 & 4+5+3+7=19; Total for both suras = 19+19 = 38.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | Total |
---|---|---|---|

9 | 129? | 8385 | 8523 |

96 | 19 | 190 | 305 |

--- | --- | --- | --- |

105 | 148 | 8575 | 8828 (Not multiple of 19) |

[54] Let us assume that Sura 9 does have 129 verses. In that case we will have only two suras in the whole Quran whose number begins with 9, and their number of verses ends with 9: Sura 9 (129 verses) and Sura 96 (19 verses). As detailed in Table 33, the grand total of sura number, plus the number of verses, plus the sum of verse numbers is 8828, not a multiple of 19.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | Total |
---|---|---|---|

9 | 127 | 8128 | 8264 |

96 | 19 | 190 | 305 |

--- | --- | --- | --- |

105 | 146 | 8318 | 8569 (19x451) |

Now let us remove the false verses (128 & 129) from Sura 9, and repeat the same calculations. The result of this correction is shown in Table 34. The grand total becomes 8569, 19x451.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | Total |
---|---|---|---|

9 | 129? | 8385 | 8523 |

25 | 77 | 3003 | 3105 |

27 | 93 | 4371 | 4491 |

37 | 182 | 16653 | 16872 |

68 | 52 | 1378 | 1498 |

94 | 8 | 36 | 138 |

97 | 5 | 15 | 117 |

---- | ---- | ---- | ---- |

357 | 546 | 33841 | 34744 (Not divisible by 19) |

By adding the sura numbers, plus the number of verses in each sura, plus the sum of verse numbers, the grand total comes to 34744, not a multiple of 19 (Table 35).

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | Total |
---|---|---|---|

9 | 127 | 8128 | 8264 |

25 | 77 | 3003 | 3105 |

27 | 93 | 4371 | 4491 |

37 | 182 | 16653 | 16872 |

68 | 52 | 1378 | 1498 |

94 | 8 | 36 | 138 |

97 | 5 | 15 | 117 |

---- | ---- | ---- | ---- |

357 | 544 | 33584 | 34485 (19x1815) |

Now, let us use the correct number of verses for Sura 9, 127, and repeat the same calculations as in Table 35. This causes the grand total to become 34485, or 19x1815. See Table 36.

[56] For the last time, let us assume that Sura 9 consists of 129 verses. We have here a sura that (1) is an odd numbered sura, (2) its number is divisible by 3, (3) the number of verses, 129, is also divisible by 3, and (4) the number of verses ends with the digit "9." There is only one sura that possesses these qualities: Sura 15 is divisible by 3, its number of verses is 99, which is divisible by 3 and ends with the digit "9." If Sura 9 consisted of 129, and we added the sura and verse numbers for these two suras, we would end up with the following results: 9 + 129 + 15 + 99 = 252 - not a multiple of 19.

If we throw away the false number 129, we have one sura in the Quran whose number is odd, and its number of verses is divisible by 3 and ends with the digit 9 - Sura 15. Now we have the following result:

**15 + 99 = 114 = 19x6.**

Sura No. | First Letter | Last Letter | Total |
---|---|---|---|

1 | B = 2 | N = 50 | 52 |

2 | A = 1 | N = 50 | 51 |

3 | A = 1 | N = 50 | 51 |

4 | Y = 10 | M = 40 | 50 |

5 | Y = 10 | R = 200 | 210 |

6 | A = 1 | M = 40 | 41 |

7 | A = 1 | N = 50 | 51 |

8 | Y = 10 | M = 40 | 50 |

9 | B = 2 | N = 50 | 52 |

--- | --- | --- | |

38 (19x2) | 570 (19x30) | 608 (19x32) |

[57] For some time now, we have been dealing with numbers. Let us now look at specific words and letters that occur in the false injections 9:128-129. The last statement in 9:127 describes the disbelievers as "LAA YAFQAHOON" (they do not comprehend).

Thus, the last letter in Sura 9 is "N" (Noon). According to the falsifiers, the last verse is 129, and the last letter is "M" (Meem), since the last false word is "AZEEM."

Now let us look at the first letter and the last letter of every sura from the beginning of the Quran to Sura 9, and calculate their gematr- ical (numerical) values. Table 37 shows that the last true letter in Sura 9 must be "N," not "M."

[58] Sister Ihsan Ramadan of Masjid Tucson counted all the suras in the Quran which end with the letter "N" (Noon), the last letter in Sura 9.

She found that 43 suras end with the same letter as Sura 9 (N) - suras 1, 2, 3, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 15, 16, 21, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 43, 44, 46, 49, 51, 58, 61, 62, 63, 66, 67, 68, 70, 77, 81, 83, 84, 95, 107, and 109. Just add the sura numbers + number of suras that end with "N", and you get:

**1919**

Thus, the last letter in Sura 9 is once again confirmed to be "N," not "M."

No. | Sura No. | Verses with the key phrase | Frequency of the phrase |

507 | 1592 | 29 | |

507+1592+29 = 2128 = 19x112 |

[59] Now let us look at the crucial expression "LA ELAAHA ELLA HOO" (There is no god except He). This phrase occurs in the false injection 9:129.

This very special expression occurs 29 times in 19 suras (Table 38).

By adding the sura numbers of the 19 suras, plus the verse num- bers where the phrase "LAA ELAAHA ELLA HOO" occurs, plus the number of occurrences of this crucial phrase, the grand total comes to 2128, or 19x112. This awesome result is dependent on the fact that 9:128-129 do not belong in the Quran.

Obviously, if 9:129 were included, the crucial expression "LA ELAAHA ELLA HOO," the First Pillar of Islam, would not conform with the mathematical code.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s | Total |
---|---|---|---|

2 | 123 (286-163) | 27675 | 27800 |

----- | ----- | ----- | ----- |

2700 | 5312 | 308490 | 316502 (19x16658) |

[60] The first occurrence of "LA ELAAHA ELLA HOO" is in 2:163, and the last occurrence is in 73:9. If we add the sura number, plus the number of verses, plus the sum of verse numbers from the first occur- rence to the last occurrence, the grand total comes to 316502, or 19x16658.

Table 39 presents the detailed data. Naturally, if "LAA ELAAHA ELLA HOO" of the false verse 129 were includ- ed, this phenomenon would have dis- appeared.

20 | 98 |

23 | 116 |

27 | 26 |

--- | |

323 (19x17) |

[61] The phrase "LAA ELAAHA ELLA HOO" occurs 7 times between the missing Basmalah of Sura 9 and the extra Basmalah of Sura 27, in 9:31, 11:14, 13:30, 20:8, 20:98, 23:116, and 27:26. By adding the numbers of the 7 verses, we get 323, or 19x17. The detailed data are shown in Table 40.

**If 9:129 were part of the Quran, the total in Table 40 would have
been: 323 + 129 = 452, not a multiple of 19. God rejects what
the hypocrites utter, even if it is the truth (63:1).**

##### The Ultimate Quranic Miracle

[62] Brother Abdullah Arik has discovered what I consider to be the ultimate Quranic miracle. This miraculous phenomenon incontrovertibly authenticates every single verse in the Quran - the number of verses in every sura, and the numbers assigned to every single verse in the Quran - while exposing and rejecting the false injections, 9:128-129. To witness this great phenomenon, see Appendix 1 (under the heading: Superhuman Numerical Combinations). Putting the number of every verse in the Quran in sequence from the beginning to the end, with the number of verses in each sura ahead of the verse numbers of each sura, the final number consists of 12692 digits (19x668), and the number itself is also a multiple of 19. If the wrong number of verses for Sura 9 was used - 129 instead of 127 - neither the number of digits, nor the number itself would be divisible by 19.

[63] Since the subject of this Appendix is Sura 9 and its number of true verses, it is noteworthy that if we write down the number of the sura, 9, followed by the correct number of verses, 127, followed by the numbers of all the verses from 1 to 127, the resulting long number is a multiple of 19. Needless to say, if the wrong number of verses is used, i.e., 129 instead of 127, this remarkable miracle would have disappeared:

9 127 1 2 3 4 5 ..... 122 123 124 125 126 127. |
---|

The total number of verses in Sura 9 is followed by the numbers of every verse in the sura from 1 to 127. The resulting long number is a multiple of 19. |

[64] The number of verses in Sura 9, 127, is an odd number. The falsifiers added two fake verses, and this made the number of verses 129, which is also an odd number. Mr. Arik used the same computer program he devised for Item 62 above to check all odd-numbered verses in the Quran. Thus, the number of verses in every sura was written down, followed only by the last digit of each of the odd-numbered verses in that sura. Sura 1 was represented by the number 71357. Sura 2 was represented by the number 28613579.....5, and so on through the last sura. The result is a long number, with 3371 digits, that is divisble by 19. Obviously, Sura 9 was represented by the number 12713579......7:

7 1 3 5 7 286 1 3 5 ... 3 5 ...... 5 1 3 5 6 1 3 5. |
---|

The number of verses in every sura is followed by the numbers of the odd-numbered verses. The resulting long number, 3371 digits, is a multiple of 19. |

[65] Since Sura 9 is an un-initialed sura, Mr. Arik applied the same computer program to all 85 un-initialed suras. The number of every verse in each of the 85 suras was written down, without the number of verses in the sura. Thus, Sura 1 was represented by the number 1234567, not 71234567. This was done with all un-initialed suras. The final result is a number that consists of 6635 digits, and is a multiple of 19. These awesome phenomena would be destroyed if we used the wrong number of verses for Sura 9, i.e., 129 instead of 127.

##### God's Messenger of the Covenant

##### Destined to Purify the Quran

[66] Finally, in a profound demonstration of the foreknowledge of the Almighty Author of the Quran, it is mathematically coded that "The person destined to prove that Sura 9 consists of 127 verses is Rashad Khalifa, God's Messenger of the Covenant" (see Appendix 2). The item presented here is another one of those numerous proofs; it is chosen for its relevance to this Appendix.

The gematrical value of the word "Rashad," as written in the Quran (40:29,38) is 505 (R=200, Sh=300, A=1, and D=4). The gematrical value of the word "Khalifa," as written in the Quran (38:26) is 725 (Kh=600, L=30, I=10, F=80, and H=5). By writing down the value of "Rashad," followed by the value of "Khalifa," followed by the number of Sura 9, followed by the correct number of verses in this sura, the product is 5057259127. This number is a multiple of 19; it equals 19x266171533.

Sura No. | No. of Verses | Sum of Verse #s |
---|---|---|

3 | 119 | 16860 |

4 | 176 | 15576 |

5 | 120 | 7260 |

6 | 165 | 13695 |

7 | 206 | 21321 |

8 | 75 | 2850 |

9 | 127 | 8128 |

--- | --- | |

988 (19x52) | 85690 (19x4510) |

[67] The number of verses from 3:81, where God's Messenger of the Covenant is prophesied, to 9:127, the end of Sura 9, is 988 (19x52). Table 41.

[68] The sum of verse numbers from 3:81 to 9:127 is also a multiple of 19 (Table 41).

[69] In Verse 3:78, just 3 verses before proclaiming God's Messenger of the Covenant, the word "God" number 361 (19x19) occurs. This verse (3:78) informs us that some falsifiers will "add falsehood to the Quran, then claim that it is part of the Quran; they attribute lies to God, knowingly."

Sura Number | Frequency of "God" |
---|---|

3 | 132 |

4 | 229 |

5 | 147 |

6 | 87 |

7 | 61 |

8 | 88 |

9 | 168 |

---- | |

912 (19x48) |

[70] The word "God" occurs 912 times (19x48) from Verse 3:78, which exposes the falsifiers, to 9:127.

[71] The number of letters, plus the number of words in 3:78 and in the false verses 9:128-129, give the same total, 143. Verse 3:78 consists of 27 words and 116 letters, & 9:128-129 consist of 115 letters and 28 words.

##### What Can We Say?

The overwhelming physical evidence provided by the Almighty to protect and authenticate His message leaves no doubt that:

(1) no distortion of any kind can enter the Quran,

(2) Verses 9:128-129 do not belong in the Quran, and

(3) every element in the Quran is mathematically structured far beyond human capabilities - the number of suras, the number of verses, the numbers assigned to the suras and verses, the frequency of occurrence of key expressions, the number of words, the number of letters, and the unique and often uncommon spelling of certain words.

This Appendix documents a profound miracle in its own right. Vast and utterly overwhelming as it is, it does not surpass or even match the overall mathematical miracle of the Quran which is detailed in Appendix One. This merely confirms the fact that the Almighty Author of the Quran has deliberately permitted the blasphemous addition of two verses to Sura 9 in order to:

(1) Demonstrate an essential function of the Quran's mathematical composition.

(2) Prove the impossibility of tampering with the Quran.

(3) Fulfill God's promise to distinguish the believers and expose the hypocrites.

##### Why Did God Permit It For 1400 Years ??

Due to the mass corruption of Islam shortly after the prophet Muhammad's death, God obviously has fulfilled His pledge in 47:38. A divine decree issued in Sura 47, which is entitled "Muhammad," Verse 38 (19x2), stipulates that "if the Arabs failed to uphold the Quran, God will dismiss them from His grace, and substitute other people in their place."

When the Arabs distorted the Quran a few years after the Prophet's death, and exterminated the Prophet's family in the process, they incurred God's pledge of 47:38, and no longer deserved to possess the Quran; the true Quran. The evidence is irrefutable that the Arabs have abandoned the Quran en masse.

For example, there is not a single mosque in the so-called Muslim world today (1989) that upholds the crucial commandment: "The mosques belong to God; you shall not invoke anyone else besides God" (72:18).

The call to prayer (Azan) and the prayer itself are no longer devoted to God alone; Muhammad's name is invariably invoked along with the name of God.

The "First Pillar of Islam" is clearly stated in the Quran, 3:18 & 47:19, and its words are decreed to be: LAA ELAAHA ELLA ALLAH (There is no other god besides God). But the Muslims, as early as the first century AH, do not want God if Muhammad is not invoked along with Him. This is easily demonstrable today by going into any mosque and declaring: "LAA ELAAHA ELLA ALLAH;" this will actually enrage today's Muslims. This behavior is documented in the Quran, 39:45. Moreover, my own research has now convinced me that the traditional Muslims are forbidden by God from uttering the Quranic, divinely dictated Shahaadah: "Ash-hadu Allaa Elaaha Ellaa Allah." They can never say this Shahaadah (without invoking Muhammad's name). Test them yourself. The First Pillar of the distorted Islam, LAA ELAAHA ELLA ALLAH, MUHAMMAD RASOOL ALLAH, does not conform with God's commandments that came to us through Muhammad (see Appendix 13).

A number of other commandments are violated as well by this Mohammedan Shahaadah. For example, the Quran enjoins us repeatedly from making any distinction among God's messengers (2:136,285; 3:84). The distorted Shahaadah gives more distinction to Muhammad, against his will. Despite the Quran's repeated assertions that it is "complete, perfect, and fully detailed" (6:19,38,114), the "Muslims" have refused to believe their Creator; they uphold such ridiculous and nonsensical sources as Hadith and Sunna. This unanimous rebellion against God and His messenger, and the mass reversion to glaring idolatry - idolizing the Prophet and the saints - called for fulfillment of God's pledge in 47:38.

In view of the incontrovertible divine evidence presented here, and in Appendices 1, 2, and 26, one can truly appreciate the following verses:

[15:9] Absolutely, we have revealed the reminder, and, absolutely, we will preserve it.

[17:88] Say, "If all the humans and all the jinns banded together in order to produce a Quran like this, they could never produce anything like it, no matter how much assistance they lent one another."

[41:41] Those who have rejected the Quran's proof when it came to them, have also rejected an Honorable book.

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

[59:21] If we revealed this Quran to a mountain, you would see it trembling, crumbling, out of reverence for God. We cite these examples for the people, that they may reflect.
