The Miracle of 19
What is a Miracle ?
A miracle as you may know is something extraordinary, an occurance that
defies the stable laws of nature. In Quran God explains that one of the
main functions of a miracle is to strengthen the faith of the
believers, how ?
Does fire burn by itself ?
If you have read the other articles on this website, you may have
that there is one theme behind all of them, one idea that prevades the
scriptures, that the visible components of life (things and people) are
but an illusion, they give you the feeling that they are
self-sustainable, that their looks, skills, powers are from them! is
The scriptures give us an opposite view to this idea which is
Satan in our daily lives, Quran stresses on the fact that nothing and
nobody has any power of any sort (looks, skill, beauty, ...etc) or any
ability to harm or benefit itself or the others! what does that mean?
means that fire doesn't burn by itself, its power is not permenant nor
stable, it means that water doesn't quench your thirst, nor could it
put out any fire by itself!
ONLY GOD HAS POWER, and only Him can grant
and everyone any kind
of power atall.
some people set up idols to rival GOD, and love them as if they
are GOD. Those who believe love GOD the most. If only the transgressors
could see themselves when they see the retribution! They will realize
then that all power belongs to GOD alone, and that GOD's
What is the proof that
things and people have no power in themselves?,
what is the proof that only God has the power that we are all looking
for? God gave almost every messenger a proof of this unbelievable
idea, this proof is in the form of a miracle, an extraordinary
happening that doesn't conform with the physical laws of nature known
Miracles confirm the fact that only God has the power to harm or

they schemed against him, but we made them the losers.
2- God ordered the sea to part
and give passage to Moses and the
children of Israel:
[26:63] We then
inspired Moses: "Strike the
sea with your staff,"
whereupon it parted. Each part was like a great hill.
[26:64] We then
delivered them all.
[26:65] We thus
saved Moses and all those who were with him.
[26:66] And we
drowned the others.

be a sufficient proof, but most people are not
controls all the laws of nature, He created them, He is not
bound by them:
He granted Abraham and his wife sons
at a very old age:
[11:71] His wife (Abraham's) was standing, and she laughed when we gave
her the good news about Isaac, and after Isaac, Jacob.

could I bear a child at my age, and here is my husband, an old man? This is really

whose name is `The Messiah, Jesus the son of Mary. He will be prominent
this life and in the Hereafter, and one of those closest to Me.'

speak to the people from the crib, as well as an adult; he
will be one of the righteous."
She said, "My Lord, how can I
have a son, when no man has touched
me?" He said, "GOD thus creates whatever He wills. To have anything done,
He simply says to it, `Be,' and it is.
[16:40] To have anything
done, we simply say to it, "Be," and it is.
These are few examples proving that God is the one who gives everything
its power, without God everything and everyone will be totally
powerless, everything will just vanish!, because He sustains the whole
creation and constantly gives it power to perform its function.
GOD is the One who holds
the heavens and the earth, lest they vanish.
If anyone else is to hold them, they will most certainly vanish. He is
The signs all around us, which we consider as natural phenomenas, are
also controlled by One Controller, God:
[16:79] Do they not see the birds
committed to fly in the atmosphere of
sky? None holds them up in
the air except GOD. This should be
(sufficient) proof for people who believe.
Even the man made objects get their powers from God! your car has no
power to carry you anywhere, it is God who is giving it the power and
the conditions (gravity, atmosphere..etc) possible for it to function!
[17:70] We have honored the children
of Adam, and provided
them with rides on
land and in the sea. We
provided for them good provisions, and
them greater advantages than many of our creatures.
Back to miracle of 19, in our age of computer, God has
blessed us with a
miracle that He calls one of the greatest miracles of all times, it is
the miracle of the number 19.
What is miraculous about a number? there is nothing special about the
number itself, it has no power to harm or benefit anybody, and it's not
a lucky number!, then what's miraculous about it?
In the following we will introduce some examples of the miracle (more
aspects of it can be found on the internet, just search for "Rashad
Khalifa, authorized translation, appendix1"), but before you proceed,
please remember that judging if it's a miracle or not depends solely on
you, it's your responsbility, so don't let others judge for you:
Two main guidelines for a divine
A- a miracle should support a truthful message, a message that you feel
its sincerity and divine nature (so please read Quran from 'the
authorized english translation of Quran' as well as Rashad's message in
the 38 appendices available on the internet).
B- a miracle should be very clear, leaving no room for personal
interpretation, or human manipulation.
are some examples :
First, why 19?
In the words of Rashad Khalifa, the messenger who was appointed
by God to deliver it to us:
( 1- It is a prime number. 2- It encompases the first numeral (1) and
the last numeral (9), as if to proclaim God's attribute in 57:3 as the
"Alpha and the Omega." 3- It looks the same in all languages of the
world. Both components, 1 and 9, are the only numerals that look the same in
all languages. 4- It possesses many peculiar mathematical properties.
For example, 19 is the sum of the first powers of 9 and 10, and the
difference between the second powers of 9 and
10. We now understand that the
universal coding of God's creations with the number 19 rests in the
fact that it is the gematrical (numerical) value of the word "ONE" in
all the scriptural languages- Aramaic, hebrew, and Arabic. The number
19, therefore, proclaims the first commandment in all the scriptures:
that there is only ONE God. Rashad Khalifa
(from Appendix 1, authorized english translation)
Now let this small piece of the
miracle get you started :
( The momentous discovery that "19" is the Quran's common denominator
became a reality in January 1974, coinciding with
Zul-Hijjah 1393 A.H. The Quran was revealed in 13 B.H. (Before Hijrah).
This makes the number of years from the revelation of the Quran to the
revelation of its miracle 1393 + 13 = 1406 = 19x74. As
noted above, the unveiling of the Miracle took place in January 1974.
The correlation between 19x74 lunar years and 1974 solar years could
not escape notice. This is especially uncanny in view of the fact that "19"
is mentioned in Sura 74. Rashad Khalifa-Appendix 1 )
Now if we take the first two pieces alone, that the miracle was
discovered in 1974 and
the number of years from the revelation of Quran to the revelation of
its miracle is 1406= 19 x74,
perhaps its a mere coincidence!, but is it also a coincidence that the
number 19 is only mentioned once in the 6346 verses, and this occurence
happens to be in Chapter 74 ?!
It turned out that Quran is mathematically composed beyond the
capability of any human being or computer, nobody nor any computer
would have kept track of the following and in the same time preserved
the literal quality of the text.
From Appendix 1, Rashad Khalifa, Authorized english translation of
Quran (emphasis added):
THE SIMPLE FACTS
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. The
following facts do not require any tools to be verified, but please
remember they all refer to the original Arabic text:
1. The first
verse (1:1),known as "Basmalah,"
consists of 19 letters.
(This verse begins all the chapters except one, it says: 'In the name
God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful')
2. The Quran consists of 114 suras(Chapters), which is
..............19 x 6.
3. The total number of verses
in the Quran is 6346, or ....19 x 334. [6234 numbered verses & 112
un-numbered verses (Basmalahs) 6234+112 = 6346] Note that 6+3+4+6
Basmalah occurs 114 times, despite its conspicuous absence from
Sura 9 (it occurs twice in Sura 27) & 114= 19x6.
5. From the missing Basmalah of Sura 9 to the extra Basmalah of
Sura 27, there are precisely ...............19 suras.
6. It follows that the total of the sura numbers from 9 to 27
(9+10+11+12+...+26+27) is 342, or .............19 x 18.
7. This total (342) also equals the number of words between the
two Basmalahs of Sura 27, and 342 = ........19 x 18.
8. The famous first revelation (96:1-5) consists of .......19 words.
9. This 19-worded first revelation consists of 76 letters .19 x
10. Sura 96, first in the chronological sequence, consists of
11. This first chronological sura is placed atop the last ..19
12. Sura 96 consists of 304 Arabic letters, and 304 equals .19 x
13. The last revelation (Sura 110) consists of ............19
14. The first verse of the last revelation (110:1) consists of
15. 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.
16. 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.
17. Between the first initialed sura (Sura 2) and the last
initialed sura (Sura 68) there are 38 un-initialed suras 19 x 2.
18. Between the first and last initialed sura there are ....19
sets of alternating "initialed" and "un-initialed" suras.
19. 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 19x8534. Rashad Khalifa
The above excerpts from appendix 1 delivered by the messenger Rashad
Khalifa only scratches the surface of a vast ocean of awesome aspects
about the miracle, you are invited to verify all this information for
yourself before accepting it, (try to find the appendix 1 of the
authorized english translation of Rashad Khalifa, you can read it
online on many websites)
shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for
yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain,
and you are responsible for using them.
What is the function of 19 exactly ?
A Warning to the Human race
God clarified to us its function in chapter 74 of Quran titled
(The Hidden Secret) translated by Rashad Khalifa:
[74:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[74:1] O you hidden
[74:2] Come out and warn.
[74:3] Extol your Lord.
[74:4] Purify your garment.
[74:5] Forsake what is wrong.
[74:6] Be content with your lot.
[74:7] Steadfastly commemorate your Lord.
God's infinite wisdom willed to reveal the Quran through Muhammad,
while the Quran's awesome 19-based mathematical miracle was revealed
God's Messenger of the Covenant 1406 lunar years after revelation of
Quran (1406=19x74 & 1974 AD was the Solar Year of discovery). In retrospect,
we realize that the whole sura refers to the Quran's 19-based miracle

It turned out as the messenger of the covenant pointed in appendix 38
that 19 is not only a sign in the scriptures, but also God's signature
in the universe:
Excerpts from appendix 38 by Rashad
1. The sun, the moon, and
earth become aligned in the same relative positions once every 19
years (see ENCYCLOPAEDIA JUDAICA under "calendar")
2. Haley's comet, a profound
heavenly phenomenon, visits our solar system every 76 years, 19x4.
3. GOD ' s Stamp on you and me is
manifested in the fact that the human body contains 209 bones, 19x11
4. LANGMAN' S
MEDICAL EMBRYOLOGY, by T .W. Sadler , is used as a text book in
most of the Medical Schools in the U.S.A. On page 88
of the Fifth edition , we read the following statement: "In
general the length of pregnancy for the full term fetus is
considered to be 280 days or 40 weeks after onset of the last
menstruation, or more accurately , 266 days or 38 weeks after
fertilization. " The numbers 266 and 38 are
both multiples of 19.
[41:53] We will show them
our proofs in the horizons, and within themselves,
until they realize that this is the truth. Is your Lord not sufficient
as a witness of all things?
After Rashad Khalifa's death in 1990, God revealed to the world more
proofs that 19 is infact imbeded in all the universe, a sign that will
keep showing till the people realize that Quran is the truth from God
proven by 19.
1997 , the German chemist Dr.Peter Plichta published a book titled "God's Secret Formula",excerpts
from his website:
"The proof is
now conclusive: The world was created according to a universal plan.
This can only be comprehended to an infinite degree of precision by
investigating the interrelations between certain elementary numbers -
those very special indivisible numbers referred to in mathematics as prime
"in our computer age we encode all important secrets - in banks,
insurance calculations or launch data for atomic missiles - in very
large indivisible numbers, i.e. in prime numbers. This is necessary
because any other codes could be cracked by a sophisticated computer.
The decisive discovery made by the Duesseldorf
scientist was the notion that the plan of the universe was also to be
found in the irregular and mysterious distribution of prime numbers.
Dr. Plichta hit on the idea when he was 40 years old and needed a
further fifteen years, assisted by very few fellow scientists, to find
the final proof."
"The ramifications of this discovery will be
great and long-lasting. A common recognition of the unity of space,
time and numbers will mean a sudden end for the atheist-materialistic
age in which we now live. And if scientists are also broadminded enough
to recognise that the distribution of prime numbers is actually the
structural plan of the universe, all speculation in modern physics
about chaos and chance will be banished by a fascinating mathematical
order, which can be universally understood in its clarity and beauty."
Review: God's Secret Formula: Deciphering the Riddle of the
and the Prime Number Code by Michael Egan Dr. Nguyen Math
Seminar 5 November 1998:
The scientific correlations which Dr. Plichta draws from the prime
cross are intended to shake up the foundations of modern physics,
quantum physics in particular. Additionally, the concepts of isotope
the number of amino acids found in nature, and the arrangement of the
natural, non-radioactive elements (elements 43 and 61 are only obtained
synthesis) are unified. These
different areas of science are all shown by
Plichta to break up into groups of 1 + 19, an arrangement
dictated by the
prime number cross."
