THE MIRACLE OF 19 IN THE QUR'AN
Another mathematical miracle of the Qur'an is the manner in which
the number 19 is numerologically encoded in verses. This number
is stressed in the words of the Qur'an: "There are nineteen
in charge of it." (Qur'an, 74:30), and is encoded in various
places in the Book. Some examples of this can be listed as follows:
The Formula consists of 19 letters.

The
Qur'an consists of 114 (19 x 6) Suras.
The
first Sura to be revealed (Sura 96) is the 19th from the end.
The
first verses of the Qur'an to be revealed are the first five verses
of Sura 96 and the total number of words in these verses is 19.

As we have seen, the first five verses consist of 19 words. The
"
" is a letter, not a word. Likewise, letters "
" are not included in the calculation either.
The
first Sura to be revealed, Surat al'Alaq, consists of 19 verses
and 285 (19 x 15) letters.
Surat
anNasr, the final Sura to be revealed, consists of a total of 19
words.

There are 114 Formulas in the Qur'an or 19 x 6.
A total of 113 Suras in the Qur'an start with the formula. The only
Sura not to start with one is the ninth, Surat atTawba. Surat anNaml
is the only Sura to have two formulas. One of these is at the beginning
and the other in verse 30. Counting from Surat atTawba, which does
not begin with the formula, Surat anNaml follows 19 Suras on.
There is a formula at the beginning of the 27th Sura, Surat anNaml,
and in verse 30. There are thus two formulas in the 27th Sura. It
is the formula in the 30th verse of the 27th Sura which completes
the total of 114 formulas in the Qur'an. When we add together the
number of the verse and the number of the Sura, 30 and 27, we find
the number 57 (19 x 3).
The total number of Suras from Surat atTawba (9) to Surat anNaml
(27) is 342 (9 + 10 + 11 +12 +13 +14 +15 +16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20
+ 21 + 22 + 23 + 24 + 25 + 26 + 27). That figure is 19 multiplied
by 18.
The
sum of all the occurrences of the name "Allah" in all the verses
whose numbers are multiples of 19 (i.e., verses 19, 38, 57, 76,
etc.) is 133, or 19 x 7.
The
"abjad" value of the word "wahd" meaning "one"
is 19. This word is used with various other words in the Qur'an,
such as one door, one variety of food. It is used 19 times together
with the name "Allah."

The
total of the Sura and verse numbers of the occasions when the word
"wahd" appears 19 times is 361: (19 x 19).
The
Arabic word "wahdahu," meaning "worship only Allah,"
appears in the verses 7:70, 39:45, 40:12, 40:84 and 60:4. When these
figures are added up without numbers being repeated, the resulting
total is 361 (19 x 19).
The
number of verses between the first initial letters (Alif, Lam, Mim;
Surat alBaqara 1) and the final initial letters (Nun; Surat alQalam
1) is 5,263 (19 x 277).
There
are 38 (19 x 2) Suras without initial letters between the first
Sura which has initial letters and the last to have them.
The
word "Rahman" (AllMerciful) appears 57 (19 x 3) times
in the Qur'an.
Thirty
different numbers are mentioned in the Qur'an.

The total of these numbers (again without taking repetitions into
account) is 162,146. This is 19 x 8,534:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 19 +20 + 30
+ 40 + 50 + 60 + 70 + 80 + 99 + 100 + 200 + 300 + 1,000 + 2,000
+ 3,000 + 5,000 + 50,000 + 100,000 = 162,146 (19
x 8,534).
In
addition to these thirty numbers, the Qur'an also refers to eight
fractions: 1/10, 1/8, 1/6, 1/5, 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 2/3. The Qur'an
thus contains a total of 38 (19 x 2) different numbers.
The
Sura from the beginning to possess 19 verses is Surat alInfitar.
Another feature of this Sura is that its final word is "Allah."
At the same time, this is the 19th appearance of the name "Allah"
from the end.
The
50th Sura, which begins with the letter Qaf, contains a total of
57 (19 x 3) letters Qaf. There are also 57 letters Qaf in the 42nd
Sura with a letter Qaf at the beginning. The 50th Sura contains
45 verses. Added together, these total 95 (19 x 5). There are 53
verses in the 42nd Sura. These again total 95 (42 + 53).

The
abjad value of the word "Majeed," used for the Qur'an,
in the first verse of Surah Qaf is 57 (19 x 3). As we have stated
above, the total number of letters Qaf is also 57.
When
we add together the number of times that the letter Qaf appears
in the Qur'an, we reach a total of 798 (19 x 42). Fortytwo is the
number of another Sura with Qaf among its initial letters.
The
letter Nun appears at the beginning of only the 68th Sura. The total
number of times it appears in that Sura is 133 (19 x 7).
When
we add together the number of verses (including the formulas) in
Suras the number of which are multiples of 19, the following is
noteworthy:

The
letters Ya and Sin appear at the beginning of Surah Ya Sin. The
letter Sin appears 48 times in Surah Ya Sin and the letter Ya 237
times. The total of these letters is 285 (19 x 15).
Only
one Sura, the seventh, begins with the initial letters "Alif, Lam,
Mim, Sad." The letter Alif appears in this Sura 2,529 times, the
letter Lam 1,530 times, the letter Mim 1,164 times and the letter
Sad 97 times. These four letters thus appear a total of 2,529 +
1,530 + 1,164 + 97 times, or 5,320 (19 x 280) times.
The
letters Alif, Lam and Mim are the most frequently used letters in
Arabic. They appear together at the beginning of six Suras: numbers
2, 3, 29, 30, 31 and 32. The number of times these three letters
appear in each of these six Suras is a multiple of 19. In order:
9,899 (19 x 521), 5,662 (19 x 298), 1,672 (19 x 88), 1,254 (19 x
66) and 817 (19 x 43). The total number of times all these three
letters appear in the six Suras is 19,874 (19 x 1,046).
The
initial letters Alif, Lam and Ra appear in Suras 10, 11, 12, 14
and 15. The total number of times these letters appear in these
Suras is 2,489 (19 x 131), 2,489 (19 x 131), 2,375 (19 x 125), 1,197
(19 x 63) and 912 (19 x 48).
The
frequency with which the initial letters Alif, Lam, Mim and Ra appear
is 1,482 (19 x 78) in total. The letter Alif appears 605 times,
Lam 480 times, Mim 260 times and Ra 137 times.
The
initial letters Qaf, Ha, Ya, 'Ayn and Sad appear in only one Sura,
the 19th. The letter Qaf appears 137 times in this Sura, Ha 175
times, Ya 343 times, 'Ayn 117 times and Sad 26 times. The total
number of appearances of these five letters is 137 + 175 + 343 +
117 + 26 = 798 (19 x 42).
Other findings on this subject include:
In the whole of the Qur'an,
 the word "atee" (obey!) appears 19 times,
 the words "Abd" (servant), "abid" (a person
who serves) and "abudu" (worship) appear a total of 152
(19 x 8) times,
The numerical abjad values of some of the names of Allah
given below are also multiples of 19:
 AlWahid (The One) 19 (19 x 1)
 AjJami (The Gatherer) 114 (19 x 6)
19: AN EXTRAORDINARY NUMBER
The number 19 is the total of the numbers 9 and 10 to the power
of 1. The difference between the numbers 9 and 10 to the power of
2 is again 19.
The Sun, Moon and Earth line up in the same relative
positions once every 19 years.241
Halley's Comet passes through the Solar System
once every 76 years (19 x 4).242
There are 209 (19 x 11) bones
in the human body.243
The number of bones in the human hand is 19.244
The place of the number 19 in the Pascal triangle
The total of the first 19 figures in the Pascal triangle is 38 (19
x 2).
Pascal’s triangle is an arithmetical one used in algebra
and probability calculations. 
The total of the first 19 numbers in the Pascal triangle is 57
(19 x 3).
Figure 2: The first 19 figures

Conclusion:
The total of the first 19 figures is a multiple of 19.
The total of the first 19 numbers is a multiple of 19.
The connection between the number 19 and the
Pascal triangle with regard to the revelation sequence of the Qur'anic
verses
The
96th Sura, the first revealed, comes 19 before the end. It consists
of 19 verses and contains a total of 285 letters (19 x 15). The
first five verses of the revelation contain 76 (19 x 4) letters.
The
first verses of the 68th Sura, the second to be revealed, consist
of 38 (19 x 2) words.
The
third revelation, the 73rd Sura, contains 57 (19 x 3) words.

It [the Qur’an]
is simply a reminder to all the worlds. You will certainly
know the truth of it after a while.
