Why 19?



Yeah why 19? When people saw or heard about the Mathematical Miracle of Qur'an or Islam, that's what people ask. "Ok, so what. Why 19? Why not 20, 17, 5 etc?." Or look at their question about this on surah 74:31

"What does Allah intend by this as an example?"

Actually, before this word Al-Qur'an gives you the answers. Start from 74:30

"Over it are nineteen"

Before we talk about number 19, let us talk about:

Almighty Allah explain more (74:31):

"We have not made their NUMBER (19 / Nineteen) except as:          

1. A trial for those who disbelieve
That those who were given the Scripture will be convinced.
3. Those who have believed will increase in faith.
4. And those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt.
5. And that those in whose hearts is hypocrisy and the disbelievers will say, "What does Allah intend by this as an example?"

So, surah 74:31:
    - CONFIRMS that the Mathematical Miracle really exist in Al-Qur'an, the Mathematical Miracle is CODED in this surah and those 5 points are the aim of it.

Surah 74:31:
    - Showing you that not all of the Mathematical Miracles involve merely 19 factor but all the things called NUMBER.

"We have not made their NUMBER"

Surah 74:31:
    -Talking about MIRACLES inside Al-Qur'an. In this context, MATHEMATICAL way because it involves NUMBERS. Muslims call this "Miracle" as "MUJIZA" a thing that possessed by the Prophets and the Messengers of Allah. So, Mathematical Mujiza is one of Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) Mujiza.

The NUMBERS that we are talking are not the ordinary numbers because these numbers aimed for:
Trial for those who disbelieve - that those who were given the Scripture will be convinced and those who have believed will increase in faith and those who were given the Scripture and the believers will not doubt

If you ask about why Allah gave the Prophets and Messengers Mujiza? Those 5 points above are the answer.


Allah Knows Best. But 19 factor does exist in Al-Qur'an and you can't deny it. For those who seeking the Mathematical Miracles will feel that 19 factor is the MOTHERSHIP of the Holy Qur'an and in my 10 years experience in this field, 19 factor also involve in all things related to ISLAM.


Numerical Value of the name "MUHAMMAD" = 92
Numerical Value of the name "AHMAD" = 53

9 + 2 + 5 + 3 = 19
9253 = 19 x 487

The Combination of rakaah shalat / day = 24434

24434 = 19 x 1286

The Numerical Value word "Allahu Akbar" = 289

2 + 8 + 9 = 19

In their 5 times prayer, Muslims saying 94 time the word "ALLAHU AKBAR"

 28994 = 19 x 1526

The combination of Dhikir is 33, 33, 33 and 1

3 + 3 +  3 + 3 + 3 + 3 +1 = 19




talking about MIRACLES? We Muslims call it "MUJIZA".

When told about the mathematical miracle of the Quran and how it is related to number 19 , many people ask : Why 19?!

If it was 17 or 21, they would have asked the same question, WHY 21 ?  or  Why 17 ?. But of course there is more than one reason for that choice.

Number 19 as we know by now is mentioned in the Quran in Sura 74 verse 30. God even told us the significance of this number in 74:31.

The student of the scriptures will find enough evidence that the mathematical code, based on number 19, was used for the previous scripture as well.

Since distortion changed the whole face of the old scripture we were left only with the Quran as the only preserved word of God. It is God's choice for this to happen. Even the universe at large bears this divine mark. The number 19 can be looked upon as the Almighty Creator's signature on everything He created.

The number 19 possesses unique mathematical properties, for example:

1-It is a prime number , only divides by itself and one.

2-It encompasses 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-Its {numerals} look the same in all languages in the world.The numerals (1) and (9) look very much the same in , for example Arabic and English.

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.

5-Number 19 is the 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.

The word "ONE" "Wahid" in reference to God, in the Quran, is used 19 times. Is it a co-incidence?

The number 19 itself has no power and has no holiness, and can lead you no where. It is the Miracle that is based on this number that has the significance. This significance is explained clearly by God Almighty Himself in 74:30-31.

74:30-31 states the following

Over it are Nineteen.
And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and

We have fixed their
number only as a
trial for Unbelievers,

 in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty,
 and the Believers may increase in Faith
and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers,
and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say,
 "What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?"
Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth,
 and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord,
 except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.




Allah the Almighty controlled everything.
