The Quran has 114 Chapters (or Sura’s). Two numbers can be associated with each Sura, S and V.

S = Serial number of the Sura

V = Number of verses in the Sura

Sum of all S = 1+2+3+...+114 = 6555 (We call this T1 )

Sum of all V = Number of verses in the Quran = 6236 (We call this T2)

No. of Sura’s with an even serial no. = 57

(We call this SE group)

No. of Sura’s with an odd serial no. = 57

(We call this SO group)

No of Sura’s with even number of verses = 60

(We call this the VE group)

No of Sura’s with odd number of verses = 54

(We call this the VO group)

A Sura having S and V both even or both odd is a homogeneous sura ( We call this HM group)

A Sura having S even but V odd or vice versa is a hetrogeneous sura (We call this HT group)

AMAZING FACTS

==================

1. Both HM and HT contain exactly 57 suras!

2. Sum of all serial numbers (S) and verse count (V) of HM sura’s = 6555 = T1 !!

3. Sum of all serial numbers (S) and verse count (V) of HT sura’s = 6236 = T2 !!

Nothing in maths dictate that above three should be true.

For example, if the first Sura contained 8 or 6 verses instead of 7 none of the above 3 would be true.

T1 has nothing to do with number of verses (V) and T2 has nothing to do with order of the Sura’s (S)

We can further divide the VE group (Sura’s having even number of verses) depending on whether their serial no

is even ( VE_SE group ) or odd (VE_SO group )

and similarly the VO group depending on whether their serial no is even

(VO_SE) or odd (VO_SO)

AMAZING FACTS

==================

1. Both VE_SE and VE_SO contain exactly 30 Sura’s !!

in other words no. of sura’s with even no. of verses and even serials are equal to the no. of sura’s with even verses but odd serials. They didn’t have to be but they are!

2. Both VO_SE and VO_SO contain exactly 27 Sura’s !!

They didn’t have to be but they are!

Lets divide the Qur’anic Suras with regard to numbers into two equal halves:

1 to 57 and 58 to 114. There would be obviously 28 even serial-numbered Suras in the first half of the Holy Qur’an and thus 29 odd serial-numbered ones.

In the second half there are 28 odd serial-numbered Suras and thus 29 even serial-numbered ones.

AMAZING FACTS

==================

1. There are 28 HM Suras in the first half and 29 HT ones !!

2. There are 29 HM Suras in the second half and 28 HT ones !!

They didn’t have to be but they are!

There are 27 VE Sura’s in the first half of the Quran so the remaining 33 (since they are 60 ) are in the second half

The sum of the number of verses in the first 27 VE Sura’s = 2690

AMAZING FACT

==================

The sum of the serial numbers of the 33 VE Sura’s in the second half is also 2690 !!

It didn’t have to be but it is!

Sura 57 is Al-Hadid (Iron), which marks the end of the first half of the Qur’anic Suras. It has 29 verses. If we multiply the serial number of the Sura by the number of verses it contains, the result is 29×57=1653

AMAZING FACT

=========================

The total number of the serial number of Suras 1-57, i.e. 1+2+3+...+57 = 1653 !!

It didn’t have to be but it is!

CONCLUSIONS

==============

1. It is absurd to assert that this mathematical configuration occurred by chance.

2. It is equally absurd to state that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) either alone or along with his companions painstakingly created this configuration for the following reasons.

a. No Muslim knew of this until the twentieth century. It is not mentioned

anywhere, any time and in any book whatsoever. And if the Prophet did it

then why did he hide it?

b. Quran is a literary masterpiece and challanges the Arabs to match it in style, eloquence etc. Humans dont write poetry with Math in mind!

c. In 23 years Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions brought the greatest revolution in human history. Where would they get the time for this?

From 1 and 2 the only reasonable conclution is that this Book IS the divine revelation as claimed by the Book itself and the person who presented it to the world

Other conclusions drawn from this

1. The Quran is perfectly preserved. Nothing is added, removed or its order changed.

2. The number of verses in each Sura is also a revelation.

3. The issues under discussion are contemporary discoveries and thus the Qur’anic miracle appears in a new form. We should note that the world of numbers is the world of facts and that its language is of greater clarity and decisiveness.

4. These findings destroy the attempts of the orientalists to doubt the serial order of the Scripture

5. Such research might serve as a key to studies that deal with Qur’anic text far from merely its historical aspect, which is utilized by people of falsehood for distortion and disturbance. Of course, we do not intend to

overlook the historical aspect, but we add it as a separate proof.

6. The reader will note that the matter is based on investigation rather than independent judgement. Therefore, there is no room for rejecting or denying it unless more accurate calculation proves the error of the results.
