## Sequential (Conventional) Values

By writing the 28 letters of the Arabic alphabet, then assigning sequential numbers to them, from 1 to 28,we get the sequential or conventional value.

## Soad Khalifa Rayan’s Discovery

Soad calculated the sequential value of “Noah”; **نوح**:

it is 14 + 6 + 8 = 28. If you look at Sura 71, entitled “Noah,” you will note that the number of verses is 28.

She calculated the value of “Abraham”; **ابراهیم**:

1 + 2 + 20 + 1 + 5 + 10 + 13= 52, and 52 is the number of verses in Sura Abraham (No. 14).

She then calculated the sequential value of “Muhammad”; **محمد**:

13 + 8 + 13 + 4 = 38, and 38 is the number of verses in Sura Muhammad (No. 47).

She then calculated the sequential value of “Rashad Khalifa”; **رشاد خلیفه**:

20 + 21 + 1 + 4 + 24 + 12 + 10 + 17 + 5 = 114; all suras. No sura has 114 verses. Her conclusion: this further proves that Rashad Khalifa is God’s Messenger of the covenant who is prophesied in 3:81 to prove the Quran’s 114 suras.

Soad also noted that the number of suras from Abraham (Sura 14) to Noah (71) is 57, 19×3, with 57 suras outside.

## Keikhusro Emami’s Discovery

This old discovery of Mr. K. is relevant to this topic. He added the numbers of the 29 initialed suras: 2 + 3 + 7 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 19 + 20 + 26 + 27 + 28 + 29 + 30 + 31 + 32 + 36 + 38 + 40 + 41 + 42* + *43 + 44 + 45 + 46 + 50 + 68 = 822. He then added the gematrical values of “Rashad” (505) and “Khalifa” (725). The sum he obtained was 822+505+725 =2052, that is 19×108.

## Lisa Spray’s Discovery

A couple of years ago, Lisa gave the 28 letters of the Arabic alphabet sequential values. She then calculated the sum of sequential values of the 14 Quranic Initials that prefix suras 2, 3, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 36, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 50, and 68.The letters are A **ا**, H **ه**, HH **ح**, TT **ط**, Y **ی**, K **ك**, L **ل**, M **م**, N **ن**, S **س**, ‘A **ع**, SS **ص**, Q **ق**, and R **ر**.

The sequential values of these letters are 1, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15,16,18,19, and 20, respectively, and the sum of these numbers is 171, 19×9. Those who are familiar with the Ouran’s 19-based miracle appreciate the significance of these findings. This discovery validates the sequential numbering system of the Arabic alphabet.

## SA’EED TALARI’S DISCOVERIES

Saeed was blessed with a huge number of profound discoveries, including what was reported in past issues as part of the “Miracle of Miracles“. This time, I wish to report only one of his latest findings:

The parameters of the 3 messengers of Islam, written next to each other, give a multiple of 19. Write down the number of letters in “Ibrahim” (6),then the gematrical value of “Ibrahim” (258), then the number of letters in “Muhammad” (4), then the value of “Muhammad” (92), then the number of letters in “Rashad” (4), then the value of “Rashad” (505). The result is 62584924505, a multiple of 19.

Note: The sum of gematrical values of the 3 messengers, Abraham, Muhammad, & Rashad is 258+92+505=855=19×45.

## Other Discoveries

I have a number of other significant discoveries with which God blessed Brothers **Muhammad Azarshahy** of San Francisco, **Ahmad Yusuf **of Nigeria, and **Mohamoud Ali Abib** of Tucson. I hope I find more space in future issues of the PERSPECTIVE to publish these discoveries. More profound findings were also made by Sister Ihsan Ramadan concerning “Mudathir & Muzzammil.”
