ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP (http://aljumaareminder.com/presents a miracle of the number 19 in the Qur’an:


Another mathematical miracle of the Qur’an is the manner in which the number 19 is numerologically encoded in verses. This number is stressed in the words of the Qur’an: “There are nineteen in charge of it.” (Qur’an, 74:30), and is encoded in various places in the Book. Some few examples:

  • The Qur’an consists of 114 (19 x 6) Suras.
  • The first Sura to be revealed (Sura 96) is the 19th from the end.
  • The first verses of the Qur’an to be revealed are the first five verses of Sura 96 and the total number of words in these verses is 19.
  • The first Sura to be revealed, Surat al-‘Alaq, consists of 19 verses and 285 (19 x 15) letters.
  • Surat an-Nasr, the final Sura to be revealed, consists of a total of 19 words. Furthermore, the first verse of Surat an-Nasr, which speaks of the help of Allah, contains 19 letters.
  • When we add together the number of verses (including the formulas) in Suras the number of which are multiples of 19, the following is noteworthy:
                 19×1                19th Sura                         99
                 19×2              38th Sura                         89
                 19×3              57th Sura                         30
                 19×4             76th Sura                         32
                19×5             95th Sura                          9
                19×6             114th Sura                          7

=266 (19×4)


  • The letters Alif, Lam and Mim are the most frequently used letters in Arabic. They appear together at the beginning of six Suras: numbers 2, 3, 29, 30, 31 and 32. The number of times these three letters appear in each of these six Suras is a multiple of 19. In order: 9,899 (19 x 521), 5,662 (19 x 298), 1,672 (19 x 88), 1,254 (19 x 66) and 817 (19 x 43). The total number of times all these three letters appear in the six Suras is 19,874 (19 x 1,046).

The Formula {Bismillaahir – Rahmaanir – Rahiim} consists of 19 letters. A total of 113 Suras in the Qur’an start with the formula. The only Sura not to start with one is the ninth, Surat at-Tawba. Surat an-Naml is the only Sura to have two formulas. One of these is at the beginning and the other in verse 30. Counting from Surat at-Tawba, which does not begin with the formula, Surat an-Naml follows 19 Suras on.
