Confirmation of ن و ن (Noon Waw Noon) in 68:1
The Quran is characterized by a unique phenomenon never found in any human authored book. Every element of the Quran is mathematically composed based on the number 19: the suras (chapters), the verses, the words, the number of certain letters, the number of words from the same root, the number of occurrence of key words and statements and many other elements of the Quran besides its content. Thus the believers realize that not a single sura, verse, word, number or even a letter in the Quran is out of God’s control.
Virtually every element of the Quran contains 19 as the common denominator. For example, the number of suras (chapters) in the Quran is 114, or 19×6. The total
number of verses in the Quran is 6346, or 19×334. The word “Allah” (God) occurs in the Quran 2698 times, or 19×142.
Any letter, word, statement, verse or any number used in the Quran,—where, how, when and how many were used—is deliberate, and not by coincidence. God told us in the Quran that He has counted the numbers of all things. He used this statement in verse 72:28. Note that the sum of the digits of the verse adds up to 19 (7+2+2+8 = 19). So God’s words are not to be taken lightly.
Significance of the numerical structure
The reference to number 19 and the significance behind the mathematical composition of the Quran is given in following verses.
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, “What did GOD mean by this allegory?” GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills.None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.
[74:32] Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon.
[74:33] And the night as it passes.
[74:34] And the morning as it shines.
[74:35] This is one of the great miracles.
[74:36] A warning to the human race.
[74:37] For those among you who wish to advance, or regress.
New Mathematical Findings
Dr. Rashad Khalifa was the original discoverer of the Quran’s mathematical composition based on the number 19, by God’s leave. Since then, many other people have contributed to the initial discoveries. All are according to God’s plan and by His mercy.
However, the rejecters of the Quran’s mathematical proofs and its message have challenged Dr. Khalifa for not being consistent in regard to the mathematical facts. One of their arguments to discredit his work was to accuse that he changed the writing of the initial letter “NuN” in verse 68:1 as ن و ن, to just come up with a divisible count of the letter “N” in that chapter.
Spelling of the initial “ن و ن” in 68:1
God Almighty gives us a hint in verse 21:87 about how to correctly spell “NuN.” This verse talks about Jonah and is given below.
[21:87] And Zan-Noon (Jonah, “the one with an `N’ in his name”), abandoned his mission in protest,
thinking that we could not control him. He ended up imploring from the darkness (of the big fish’s belly): “There is no god other than You. Be You glorified. I have committed a gross sin.”
Note that, instead of “Jonah,” God used Zan-NuN with the NuN spelled as “Noon waw Noon” which is one of the letters that composes that name. Now we have additional mathematical evidence, by the grace of God, to prove that writing “Zan-Noon” instead of Jonah was to teach us and confirm for us the proper writing of the initial letter NuN in 68:1 to be ن و ن.
The relationship between 21:87 and 68:1
The unique spelling of ن و ن (NuN) occurs in 21:87 and 68:1. It is pronounced as “Noon waw Noon” in Arabic. The gematrical or the numerical value of the Arabic letter ن, or N is 50. The gematrical value of the Arabic letter و, or W is 6. Therefore the total gematrical value of ن و ن is 106 (50+6+50). For more information about what a gematrical value is and the numerical values of the Arabic letters, please refer to appendix 1
Let us list the physical facts about 21:87 and 68:1.
- Verse 21:87 has 79 letters, and its total gematrical value is 9784.
- Verse 68:1 has 18 letters, and its total gematrical value is 695.
So, we have the numbers 21, 87, 79, 9784 for the first verse, and 68, 1, 18, 695 for the other verse. Let us add the digits that make up these numbers.
2+1+8+7 + 7+9 + 9+7+8+4 + 6+8+1 + 1+8+ 6+9+5 = 106
This total, 106, is exactly the same as the gematrical value of ن و ن. Praise God. Thus this is a confirmation that the initial N in verse 68:1 must be written as ن و ن in its three-letter Arabic root format as NuN (or Noon waw Noon in Arabic).
Indeed, God is in full control of everything.
We will show them our proofs in the horizons, and within themselves, until they realize that this is the truth. Is your Lord not sufficient as a witness of all things? (41:53)
