19 = The Numbers Don't Add UP - Some Examples

By
Abdul Haleem

 

CASE #1:

RASHAD KHALIFA ALTERS muqatta'at (Quranic Initial) "nun" into "nun waw nun" to tally his count

RASHAD'S PUBLICATION (1982)
Title: QURAN: Visual Presentation of The Miracle
ISBN 0-934894-30-2 Library of Congress Card No. 82-083551

[O]n page 238 Rashad Khalifa mentions THE QURANIC INITIAL "N" as the single alphabet "nun" of the Arabic language:

But on page 90, to tally the total count of the alphabets "nun"in Surah 68 (Al-Qalam), Rashad alters the printed Arabic Text. One can easily see that the QURANIC INITIAL "N" (nun) is altered by hand to read "nun waw nun". With this EXTRA "nun" he could make the total count divisible by Number 19.

[To see the visible forgery and number manipulation go to

http://mostmerciful.com/deceit-two.htm and view the Arabic pages of RK’s book!]


Please also notice that the hi-lited portions of the decorative borders. These borders have been cut and re-pasted to accommodate the extra space needed for the two extra alphabets "waw" and "nun". The readers can make a challenge to the propagators of number 19; "produce any published Musaf (Qur'an in the Arabic Script) that has the Qur'anic Initial "N" (nun) written as "nun waw nun".  

Secondly, if the INITIAL "nun" is always written as "nun waw nun" then why did he TWICE write them as a single alphabet "nun" on page 238? The black stars on page 90 are placed by Rashad in the Arabic text are to point out the alphabet "nun" whenever and wherever they do appear in the Surah Al-Qalam.

CASE #2
   
In Verse 21 of Surah 30 RASHAD KHALIFA COUNTS ALPHABET "LAM"7 times instead of 8 to tally his count


RASHAD'S PUBLICATION (1982)
Title: QURAN: Visual Presentation of The Miracle
ISBN 0-934894-30-2 Library of Congress Card No. 82-083551

Below are copies of pages 209 - 210 and 211:

[The pages are reproduced at http://mostmerciful.com/deceit-three.htm and show that RK counted "lam" only SEVEN times in Verse 30:21 in his FIRST edition!]

RASHAD'S SECOND PUBLICATION (1989)
Title: QURAN: THE FINAL SCRIPTURE ISBN 0-934894-57-1 Price U.S. $ 57.00


Below is the Verse 21 of Surah 30 as published in his own publication.  I have hi-lited the alphabet "Lam" in the Verse 21 below.  The total count of hi-lited "Lams" comes to 8 and NOT 7:

[The pages are reproduced at http://mostmerciful.com/deceit-three.htm and show that RK counted "lam" EIGHT times in Verse 30:21 in his SECOND edition!]


THREE DECEITS AND THE GAME IS OVER!!!

A FOLLOWER OF RASHAD WROTE TO ME:
However the real question is not whether he made mistakes. Remember most of his work was perhaps manual. 

MY RESPONSE TO IT WAS:
Here is the MOST IMPORTANT issue... Rashad did make errors for one reason or other when he counted one "lam" short in Verse 30:21 and one "nun" extra in Sura 68... 

NOW WHAT HAPPENS IF WE CORRECT THESE ERRORS...
DO THE NEW "FREE OF ERROR COUNTS" UPHOLD THE MIRACLE???
(Obviously, there was no rebuttal).

CASE #3!

Rashad Khalifa Claims:

The first word (Ism) is mentioned in the Quran 19 times, 19x1.


THE TRUTH:

**First word (I)sm in its original form, as it is used in bismillah(invocation), is mentioned 115 times in the quran. Not divisible by 19.

To get desired count, that is 19, he completely excluded ALL of its occurences???!!!

Instead, he counted the other form of that word, and that is "Ism", or more correct "ASM". But he was not consistent even in this arbitrary counting, he further excluded all of its plural forms and all the forms with sufixxes (hu) and (hi) (what was not the case in other counts, for example when he counted all the forms of the words with root R- SH -D, when he wanted to prove his messengership)

CASE #4
   
Rashad Khalifa Claims:

The third word (Al-Rahman=Most Gracious) is mentioned in the Quran 57 times, or 19x3.


THE TRUTH:

The third word Ar-Rahmaan occurs in the quran 169 times. Not divisible by 19.

To get desired 19-divisible count , that is 57, RK had to exclude all of its occurences in the bismillahs at the beginnings of the quranic chapters except in the first one?!?!, that is, 1:1 in hafs version of quranic text.
