وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوا يَستَبدِل قَومًا غَيرَكُم ثُمَّ لا يَكونوا أَمثٰلَكُم
If you turn away, He will substitute other people in your place, and they will not be like you. (47:38)
The number 19 is the numerical value of the Arabic word “WAHED = ONE” (و (W) = 6, ا (A) = 1, ح (H) = 8, & د (D) = 4 : 6+1+8+4=19). The message GOD IS ONE pervades the whole Qur’an through a miraculous mathematical system where the number 19 is the common denominator.
This system is based entirely on PHYSICAL, UNDENIABLE, FACTS such as the 19 letters in the Qur’an’s opening statement (Basmalah), the fact that Qur’an consists of 114 (19 x 6) suras, the fact that all the mysterious letters that prefix half the Qur’an (ALM, Q, N, Ya seen, etc.) occur in their suras a number of times which is ALWAYS a multiple of 19, in addition to many other physical, incontrovertible, facts.
This overwhelming miracle of Qur’an is recognized by God Himself as “ONE OF THE GREATEST MIRACLES” (74:35), with the number 19 specifically mentioned (see 74:30-35). The Miracle is simple and straightforward, and has been perfectly understood and fully appreciated by thousands of people around the world; many embraced Islam because of the Miracle alone. The Miracle was understood and appreciated by Americans, Canadians, Egyptians, Malaysians, British, Iranians, Turks, Australians, Africans, Europeans, Indonesians, Philippinos, Japanese, Chinese and many other nationalities. BUT NOT A SINGLE ARAB? WHY!!! HAS GOD FORSAKEN THE ARABS?
An overwhelming miracle has been discovered in Qur’an. The miracle is characterized by the fact that it consists entirely of undeniable physical facts. Over the last fifteen years, using computers, an intricate mathematical system has emerged within Qur’an. Five books and numerous summaries have been published around the world detailing this awesome miracle of the Qur’an.
The Qur’an itself has stated that this miraculous mathematical system constitutes THE MIRACLE OF QUR’AN (see Quran 10:1, 12:1, 13:1, 15:1, 26:2, 27:1, 28:2, 31:2 & 74:25-35). Furthermore, the Qur’an has stated that it contains a secret that will, in time, prove that Qur’an is indeed the word of God, (see Quran 25:4-6), and that THIS SECRET WILL BE UNVEILED AT A FUTURE TIME (see Quran 10:20).
Thousands of people around the world have examined the miracle of Qur’an, and all those permitted by God to understand it were unanimously overwhelmed. Thousands of people have understood and appreciated the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, and many converted to Islam as a direct result.
Muslims of all races, nationalities, educational levels and professions have enthusiastically supported the miracle; the only exception has been THE ARABS. One of the strangest phenomena I have ever witnessed is the fact that NOT A SINGLE ARAB WAS PERMITTED TO UNDERSTAND OR APPRECIATE THE MIRACLE OF QUR’AN. Not only were the Arabs prevented by God from understanding the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, they are the only people in the world who are fighting it; YES, FIGHTING IT. They allocated budgets, and spent a lot of money to fight God and His miracle. In the process, they have committed some of the weirdest blasphemies I have ever seen. The following example is a perfect illustration:
Last July, I visited Vancouver, BC, to speak on the Miracle of Qur’an. Some brothers and sisters in Vancouver worked very hard to publicise the Miracle, and placed advertisements in Vancouver’s newspapers that we now possess physical evidence proving that Qur’an is God’s message to the world. When the time came to deliver my lecture, many Christian Canadians responded to the ads and came to witness the Miracle. As it turned out, some Arab residents of Vancouver had contacted the Saudi embassy in Ottowa, and soon the second man in the Saudi Religious Hierarchy was dispatched to Vancouver to oppose me. As soon as I finished, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Qa’ood (the Saudi religious authority) stood up and negated every single point I made. Unbelievable as this maybe, he actually made the following statements:
(1) The opening statement of Qur’an (Bismillah) does NOT consist of 19 letters !!!
(2) The Quran does NOT consists of 114 suras !!!
He might as well say that the sun does NOT rise from the East.
Of course every Muslim in the world can count the letters in the “BASMALA” and find that they are 19 letters. This is an undeniable (I thought) PHYSICAL FACT.
And every Muslim in the world can pick up any copy of Qur’an and see that it consists of 114 (19 x 6) suras.
But the Christian Canadians who attended the lecture did not know that. Thus, they left the lecture disillusioned and disappointed, while we failed to show them the proof that Qur’an is God’s final message to the world.
The Miracle of Qur’an has been coming out of the computer at Masjid Tucson for many years now, and the Masjid now has many branches around the world. Thousands have understood and appreciated the Miracle and their faith has been strengthened (see 74:31). The people who have seen light around the world, and the people who attend our Masjid on regular basis include Americans, Canadians, British, Egyptians, Indonesians, Malaysians, Iranians, Japanese, Turks, Africans, Europeans, Pakistanis, Indians and many other nationalities; BUT NOT ONE SINGLE ARAB!!!
The Qur’an states at the end of Sura 47 (entitled Muhammad) (47:38) that “If you turn away, we will substitute other people in your place, and they will not be like you.” The Arabs were given the Qur’an for 1400 years. But they have abandoned it completely, and were distracted by human-made fabrications (see details in the accompanying articles). It appears, therefore, that God has indeed carried out His promise, and decided to substitute other people in place of the Arabs. God has finally forsaken the Arabs, because they have turned away form Qur’an (47:38).
The Prophet also disowns the Arabs (his people) on the Day of Judgment (See Quran 25:30), because of their desertion of Qur’an. The Arabs seem to have forgotten that Qur’an is the word of God that came out of the Prophet’s mouth (see 69:38-47).
The explanation of the Arabs’ total and obviously deliberate isolation from Qur’an and its Miracle is thoroughly explained in Verse 57 of Sura 18:
“Who is more evil than those who are reminded of God’s revelations, but continue to disregard them, totally heedless? Consequently, we place shields on their hearts to prevent them from understanding, and we place deafness in their ears. Thus, when you invite them to the guidance, they CAN NEVER EVER BE GUIDED.”
Based on my observations during the last fifteen years regarding he Miracle of Qur’an, I herein challenge any Arab to come forward and prove that he has actually understood the Miracle of Qur’an. Let any Arab come forward and prove that I am wrong in believing that God has indeed forsaken the Arabs. None will be happier than me if this happens.
