This article examines the alleged miracle of the number 19 in Islam.

Verse 74:30[edit]

Some Muslims and Submitters[1] believe that Qur'an 74:30 is proof that the occurrence of observed "19" related facts in Islam is a confirmation of the truth of the religion:

Over it is nineteen

These are actually the number of angels in Hell, as the next Qur'anic ayat demonstrates:

And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers

Analysis[edit]

Bismillah Miracle[edit]

Some Muslims like to claim that the "Bismillah", a very important phrase in Islam with the translation of "In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful", has magical meanings due to its many 19-related facts. We will demonstrate below that any other "bismillah" can also produce the proof of a 'miracle'.


بسم الله الخَبِيث الوَحْشِيّ
Translation: In the name of Allah, the Evil, the Savage


Total ANV (Arabic Numerical Value): 1666

  19. One verse, ANV, 19 characters:
    1 1666 19 = 19 x 61401

One problem with the phenomena of the 19 miracle is that there are no defined rules as to what constitutes a miracle and what does not. With this distinct lack of rules, the "miracle" of nineteen can exist in any phrase, even anti-Islamic ones.

According to the Muslim standards applied to miracles, this new bismillah, "In the name of Allah, the Evil, the Savage", is miraculous. This is only the beginning. 19 miracles have been found about this new bismillah, but more experimenting will undoubtedly lead to more miracles.

The phrase, "The Pig, the Great, the Handsome" (compare to, "In the name of Allah, the beneficient, the merciful") is also miraculous and we have not even tried other combinations of words and calculations, or we would find more similar bismillah related miracles.

Questions to Believers of the 19 Miracle[edit]

  1. Can the Qur'an be corrupted, and has it been corrupted before?
  2. How do you explain the fact that Rashad's translation is the only one to include his own name within the Qur'an itself, at least 8 times, whereas no other translation in the entire history of Islam, makes even a hint let alone a mention of anyone (even a messenger) to come after Muhammad?
  3. Why are there so many Qur'ans, including the Arabic ones, that do not include Rashad in them?
  4. Why are there extra verses in the other translations whereas Rashad cut them out (e.g. 9:128 & 129)?

Here are the two possible conclusions:

  1. Khalifa's translation is an innovation of the Qur'an and of Islam. This was warned about in the hadith. He added his own name in there (in brackets) for his own gain; changing the implied meaning of the Qur'an. This means that the Qur'an was not corrupted; only Khalifa's translation is wrong. The Qur'an's claims of incorruptibility stands, and Khalifa and his innovative translation must be rejected.
  2. The Qur'an was "corrupted" by ayahs being added to it. Khalifa was merely returning the Qur'an to its original state (however this still does not explain the addition of his own names).

Which of the two do you think is most likely? Does it not strike you as extremely convenient that Khalifa rejects the majority of the hadith (in which it is clear that Muhammad is the final messenger/prophet to be sent, and that innovation of the Qur'an and Islam will not be accepted) and he conveniently has his translation of the Qur'an that mentions him by name?

If you cannot change the Qur'an's existing words, but you can add to them (as some interpretations go) then it is equally conceivable that Khalifa has removed the verses he did not require, and added his own name in brackets as innovation. ie. he changed the implied meaning of those verses in order to include himself as a vital part of Islam.

The Qur'an was corrupted whichever way you look at it; either by everyone but Khalifa, or by Khalifa himself (adding to the Qur'an is corrupting it).

Conclusion[edit]

  1. This "miracle" of 19 is not a miracle. The actual chance of finding this 'miracle' is 1 in 19 which is not an impressive probability at all.
  2. Equal number of miracles, sometimes more are found in anti-Islamic texts.
  3. Where the Qur'an says, "over it are Nineteen," it was simply talking about the number of angels in Hell. This is also confirmed by Muslim websites.[3] Even Rashad Khalifa, the inventor of 19 'miracles' believes that 19 is the number of Angels in heaven (for him, he sees it as a 'miracle' that everything is 19)
  4. Rashad Khalifa changed or 'corrupted' the Qur'an to highlight the 'miracles' of 19.
