The Numerical Value

(It's a little bit too fast. Well it's my first time. Gotta do it better next time inshaAllah)

The Universal History of Number

By Georges Ifrah

The Arabs have frequently used a system of Numerical Notation in which each letter of their own alphabet has a specific numerical value. According to F. Woepke (1863 - The Historian who is expert in the history of number), They " seem to have considered (this system) as uniquely and by preference their own".

They call this " huruf al jumal "  (calculating the total) which means something like " totals means of letter"

Another name of Numerical Value is what they call JEWISH "GEMATRIA" (possibly a corruption of Greek geometrikos arithmos, geometrical number).

For my web, I'd prefer to use NUMERICAL VALUE (easy to understand) than Gematria.

Huruf al Jumal

From:
http://www-groups.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/~history/HistTopics/Arabic_numerals.html

The numbers were represented by letters but not in the dictionary order. The system was known as huruf al jumal which meant "letters for calculating" and also sometimes as abjad which is just the first four numbers (1 = a, 2 = b, j = 3, d = 4). The numbers from 1 to 9 were represented by letters, then the numbers 10, 20, 30, ..., 90 by the next nine letters (10 = y, 20 = k, 30 = l, 40 = m, ...), then 100, 200, 300, ... , 900 by the next letters (100 = q, 200 = r, 300 = sh, 400 = ta, ...). There were 28 Arabic letters and so one was left over which was used to represent 1000.
Arabic astronomers used a base 60 version of Arabic letter system. Although Arabic is written from right to left, we shall give an example writing in the left to right style that we use in writing English. A number, say 43 21' 14", would have been written as "mj ka yd" in this base 60 version of the "abjad" letters for calculating.

NUMEROLOGICAL CALCULATIONS (ABJAD) IN THE QUR'AN
http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/mathematical_02.html

Every letter in the Arabic alphabet has a numerical (gematrical) value. In other words, in Arabic every letter stands for a number. A number of calculations can be made from this basis. These are referred to as numerological (abjad) calculations or "hisab al-jumal."239 Muslims who took advantage of the fact that every letter of the alphabet represents a number have used this in a number of fields. Ilm'ul Jafr is one of these.

 THE NUMERICAL VALUE ABOUT MOON LANDING By Harun Yahya  The 1969 Moon Landing is Indicated in the Qur'an   The Hour has drawn near and the moon has split. (Qur'an, 54:1) The Arabic word "inshaqqa" (split) used in the above verse is derived from the word "shaqqa," which can also be used to mean "causing something to rise, ploughing or digging the soil": We pour down plentiful water, then split the earth into furrows. Then We make grain grow in it, and grapes and herbs and olives and dates and luxuriant gardens and orchards and meadows.  (Qur'an, 80:25-31)   As we can see, the word "shaqqa" in the above verse is not being used in the sense of "dividing into two" but of "slicing through the soil, reaping various crops." When evaluated in this sense, the meaning of the word "shaqqa" in the expression "the moon has split" (Qur'an, 54:1) can also be seen to be referring to the 1969 moon landing and the studies performed on the moon land. (Allah knows best.) In fact, there is another very important indication here: Some of the "abjad" values of certain words in this verse in Surat al-Qamar also point to the figure 1969. One important point which needs to be stressed in this method of calculation is the likelihood of producing very large or irrelevant numbers. Despite the probability of a relevant number emerging being exceedingly small, it is striking that such a clear figure should result. The Hour [has drawn near] and the moon has split.   Hijri: 1390, Gregorian: 1969 In 1969, American astronauts carried out research on the Moon, dug the soil up with various pieces of equipment, split it and carried specimens back to Earth. We must, however, make it clear that the splitting of the Moon is of course one of the miracles given to our Prophet (saas) by Allah. This miracle is revealed thus in a hadith: The people of Mecca asked Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hiram' mountain. (Sahih Bukhari) The above miracle is the splitting of the Moon revealed in the verse. However, since the Qur'an is a Book that addresses all times, one may think of this verse as referring to the exploration of the Moon in our own day. (Allah knows best.)
