Ever since the violent demise of Ismail Farooqi on Ramadan 19, 1406, every “Muslim” publication in the world has been mourning. Every “Muslim” publication has declared that Farooqi is a martyr who is heading straight to Heaven because he died in the cause of God. We present evidence herein that the exact opposite is true. Ismail Farooqi has devoted his life to fighting God, God’s final Prophet Muhammad, and God’s miracle that came to us through Muhammad. After ten years of refusing to endorse the truth and to support the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, Farooqi received his just and inevitable retribution. It is God’s judgment, not ours, that his retribution in the Hereafter is far worse and everlasting (see Qur’an 20:127).
Dr. Ismail Farooqi was an intelligent and highly influential man. He was head of the Oriental (Islamic) Studies Department at the prestigious Temple University of Philadelphia. Millions of people around the world respected his opinion, and were profoundly influenced by him. Had he accepted the truth of God’s miracle in Qur’an, the 19-based mathematical code, the whole Muslim world would have been vastly better off today. But he arrogantly and adamantly rejected the truth, calling the undeniable facts of the Qur’an’s miracle, “trash.”
Here is a miracle of overwhelming proportions, proving by means of physical evidence for the first time in history that Qur’an is indeed God’s message to the world. Here is a phenomenon that the Almighty Himself describes as “ONE OF THE GREATEST MIRACLES” (74:35). Instead of putting his prestige and influence in the service of God’s message, and mobilizing his millions of admirers, Farooqi chose to oppose God and one of His greatest miracles (74:35). What kind of destiny would you expect for such an enemy of God? God’s retribution was so devastating, Farooqi had to agonize over the untimely death of his son only weeks before his own tragic death together with his wife.
For 10 years, I prayed to God to guide Ismail Farooqi to the truth, and to mobilize him into a significant force supporting God’s undeniable miracle. But Farooqi continued to set himself up as the miracle’s number one enemy. People everywhere sought after his opinion about God’s miracle, but he persisted in opposing it. It is hard to believe that Farooqi did not understand the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle. It is hard to believe that he did not see the undeniable truth therein. Why then did he so adamantly oppose the most important islamic development since the revelation of Qur’an?!!! What were the forces that bought him? We will find out for sure on the Day of Judgment. My guess is that the Saudi religious hierarchy, who have amassed millions of dollars and human resources to fight the miracle, had bought Farooqi. This is a pretty safe but, since the corrupt Saudi religious establishment has been financing Farooqi’s projects for many years.
HERE IS THE EVIDENCE
The mathematical miracle of Qur’an, well known to the readers of this Bulletin, is based on the number 19 (Qur’an 74:30). As detailed in many books, pamphlets, bulletins, etc, published by this Masjid, the number 19 is the common denominator throughout the Qur’an’s miracle. Nineteen, as it turns out, is God’s signature upon everything. He has created (your body contains 209 bones, or 19×11; the sun, moon, and Earth are aligned in the same relative position once every 19 years; etc). Nineteen means GOD IS ONE. Most readers know all these incredible facts and the undeniable details, of God’s 19-based miracle in Qur’an.
The Qur’an teaches us that this overwhelming miracle will be either a blessing for those who appreciate it, or a terrible terrible curse for those who reject it. Please see Qur’an 74:37.
While Ismail Farooqi was rejecting the 19-based miracle of Qur’an, the number 19 was totally surrounding him, and condemning him:
(1) Dr. Farooqi’s address in Wyncote, PA, where he was killed, was 323 Bent Road. 323 is a multiple of 19 (323=19×17).
(2) The postal zip code in Farooqi’s address was 19095 which is also a multiple of 19 (19×1005).
(3) His home telephone number was 215-887-0743, and this number is a multiple of 19.
(4) The angel of death visited Farooqi on the 19th day of Ramadan.
(5) Ramadan is the month of Qur’an, and Farooqi had set himself up as an opponent of the Qur’an’s miracle.
(6) The years of Farooqi’s death was 1406 AH, and 1406 is a multiple of 19 (19×74).
It is ironic that Sura 74(1406=19x74) is where the number 19 is mentioned. Qur’an is a current book of knowledge, addressing current events. Verses 18 through 23 of Sura 74 fit the description of Dr. Farooqi to an amazing degree. It is also amazing in this era of advanced forensic investigations that the killer or killers of Dr. Farooqi have not been found: they seem to have vanished into thin air.
I can see it now; despite these overwhelming signs, those who are blocked out by God, (18:57), will shrug their shoulders and say, “coincidence.”
Here are some other profound facts:
(1) Jimmy Swaggert’s Bible School, where they teach the gross blasphemy that Jesus is god (against the teachings of the Bible), has a telephone number in Baton Rouge which is a multiple of 19. Swaggart’s number is 768-3999 which equals 19×404421).
(2) ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) has a Post Office Box Number 38 (19×2) in Plainfield, Indiana.
(3) The Islamic society of Orange County, California has a Post Office Box number 133 (19×7) in Garden Grove.
(4) The city of Tucson’s postal number is 57 (19×3).
(5) The postal zone where our Masjid Tucson is located is number 19.
(6) Our telephone number is 602-791-3989 and this number is a multiple of 19.
The number 19 is a blessing for those who heed God’s truths, and a terrible, terrible, curse for those who reject them.
