Appendix 24

 


of the Authorized English translation of the Quran by Dr. Rashad Khalifa

Tampering With the Word of God

Part I

A superhuman mathematical system pervades the Quran and serves to guard and authenticate
every element in it.
Nineteen years after the Prophet's death, some scribes injected two false verses at the end of
Sura 9, the last sura revealed in Medina.The evidence presented in this Appendix incontro-
vertibly removes these human injections, restores the Quran to its pristine purity, and illustrates a major funtion of the Quran's mathematical code, namely, to protect the Quran from the slightest tampering. Thus, the code rejects ONLY the false injections 9:128-129.

"Surely, we have revealed this scripture, and surely, we will preserve it." [ 15:9 ]

 

The Quran is God's Final Testament. Hence the divine pledge to keep itperfectly preserved. To assure us of both the divine authorship, and the perfect preservation of the Quran, the Almighty author has rendered the Quran mathematically composed. As proven by the physical evidence in Appendix 1, such mathematical composition is far beyond human capabilities. The slightest violation of God's Final Testament is destined to stand out in glaring disharmony. A deviation by only 1 - one sura, one verse, one word, even one letter - is immediately exposed.

Nineteen years after the Prophet Muhammad's death, during the reign of Khalifa `Uthman, a committee of scribes was appointed to make several copies of the Quran to be dispatched to the new Muslim lands. The copies were to be made from the original Quran which was written by Muhammad's hand (Appendix 28).

This committee was supervised by `Uthman Ibn `Affaan, `Ali Ibn Abi Taaleb, Zeid Ibn Thaabet, Ubayy Ibn Ka`ab, `Abdullah Ibn Al-Zubair, Sa`eed Ibn Al-`Aas, and `Abdul Rahman Ibn Al-Haareth Ibn Heshaam. The Prophet, of course, had written the Quran in its chronological order of revelation (Appendix 23), together with the necessary instructions to place every piece in its proper position. The last sura revealed in Medina was Sura 9. Only Sura 110, a very short sura, was revealed after Sura 9, in Mina.

The committee of scribes finally came to Sura 9, and put it in its proper place. One of the scribes suggested adding a couple of verses to honor the Prophet. The majority of scribes agreed. `Ali was outraged. He vehemently maintained that the word of God, written down by the hand of His final prophet, must never be altered.

Ali's protest is documented in many references, but I cite and reproduce here the classic reference AL ITQAAN FEE 'ULUM AL QURAN by Jalaluddin Al-Suyuty, Al-Azhareyyah Press, Cairo, Egypt, 1318 AH, Page 59 [see Insert 1].

Translation: `Ali was asked: "Why are you staying home?" He said, "Something
has been added to the Quran, and I have pledged never to put on my street clothes,
except for the prayer, until the Quran is restored." [ Insert 1 ]

The horrendous dimensions of this crime can be realized once we look at the consequences:

(1) `Uthman was assassinated, and `Ali was installed as the fourth Khalifa.

(2) A 50-year war erupted between the new Khalifa and his supporters on one side, and the Mohammedan distorters of the Quran on the other side.

(3) `Ali was martyred, and eventually his family, the prophet Muhammad's family, except for some women and children, were killed.

(4) The disaster culminated in the infamous Battle of Karbala, where `Ali's son, Hussein, and his family were massacred.

(5) The Muslims were deprived of the pure, unaltered, Quran for 1400 years.

The distorters of the Quran finally won the war, and the "official" history that came to us represented the victors' point of view. This apparent victory for God's enemies was, of course, in accordance with God's will. In just two decades after the Prophet's death, the idol worshipers who were defeated by the Prophet in the conquest of Mecca (632 AD) reverted to idolatry. Ironically, this time around their idolwas the Prophet himself. Such idol worshipers obviously did not deserve to possess the pure Quran. Hence the blessed martyrdom of the true believers who tried to restore the Quran, and the apparent victory for the distorters of God's word.

The first peace time ruler after this lengthy and disastrous war was Marwan Ibn Al Hakam (died 65 AH/684 AD). One of the first duties he performed was to destroy the original Quran, the one that was so scrupulously written by the Prophet's own hand, "fearing it might become the cause of NEW disputes" [see `ULUM AL-QURAN, by Ahmad von Denffer, Islamic Foundation, Leicester, United Kingdom, 1983, Page 56.]. The question an intelligent person must ask is: "If the original Quran were identical to the Quran in circulation at that time, why did Marwan Ibn Al-Hakam have to destroy it?!"

Upon examining the oldest Islamic references, we realize that the false injections, 9:128-129, were always suspect. For example, we read in Bukhary's famous Hadith, and Al-Suyuty's famous Itqaan, that every single verse in the Quran was verified by a multiplicity of witnesses "except Verses 128 and 129 of Sura 9; they were found only with Khuzeimah Ibn Thaabet Al-Ansaary." When some people questioned this improper exception, someone came up with a Hadith stating that "the testimony of Khuzeimah equals the testimony of two men!!!"

(see what Bukhary had about this. Volume 6, Book 61, Number 511 click here)

Strangely, the false injections 9:128-129 are labeled in the traditional Quran printings as "Meccan" [see Insert 2].

The Title Figure of Sura 9 from a standard Quran, showing that this
sura is Medinan, "except for the last two verses; they are Meccan"!!!
[Insert 2]

How could these `Meccan' verses be found with Khuzeimah, a late `Medinan' Muslim?! How could a Medinan sura contain Meccan verses, when the universal convention has been to label as `Medinan' all revelations after the Prophet's Hijerah from Mecca??!! Despite these discrepancies, plus many more glaring contradictions associated with Verses 9:128-129, no one dared to question their authenticity. The discovery of the Quran's mathematical code in 1974, however, ushered in a new era where the authenticity of every element in the Quran is proven (Appendix 1).

As it turns out, the injection of the two false Verses 9:128-129

resulted in:

(1) demonstrating the major function of the Quran's mathematical system, and
(2) producing an awesome miracle in its own right, and
(3) distinguishing the true believers from the hypocrites (they uphold traditions).

The translation of the two false verses is shown in Insert 3:

"A messenger has come to you from among you who wants no hardship
to afflict you, and cares about you, and is compassionate towards
the believers, merciful. If they turn away, then say, 'Sufficient
for me is God, there is no god except He. I put my trust in Him.
He is the Lord with the great throne.' " [Insert 3]

THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE

[1] The first violation of the Quran's code by Verses 9:128-129 appeared when the count of the word "God" (Allah) in the Quran was found to be 2699, which is not a multiple of 19, unless we remove one.
The count of the word "God" is shown at the bottom of each page in this translation. The total shown at the end of the Quran is 2698, 19x142, because the false injections 9:128-129 have been removed.

[2] The sum of all the verse numbers where the word "God" occurs is 118123, or 19x6217. This total is obtained by adding the numbers of verses wherever the word "God" is found. If the false Verse 9:129 is included, this phenomenon disappears.

[3] As shown at the end of Sura 9 in this translation, the total occurrence of the word "God" to the end of Sura 9 is 1273, 19x67. If the false injections 9:128-129 were included, the total would have become 1274, not a multiple of 19.

[4] The occurrence of the word "God" from the first Quranic initial ("A.L.M." of 2:1) to the last initial ("N." of 68:1) totals 2641, or 19x139. Since it is easier to list the suras outside the initialed section of the Quran, Table 1 shows the the 57 occurrences of the word "God" in that section. Subtracting 57 from the total occurrence of the word "God" gives us 2698- 57 = 2641 = 19x139, from the first initial to the last initial.

If the human injections 9:128 and 129 were included, the count of the word "God" in the initialed section would have become 2642,

[5] Sura 9 is an un-initialed sura, and if we look at the 85 un-initialed suras, we find that the word "God" occurs in 57 of these suras, 19x3. The total number of verses in the suras where the word "God" is found is 1045, 19x55. If 9:128-129 were included, the verses containing the word "God" would increase by 1.

[6] The word "God" from the missing Basmalah (Sura 9) to the extra Basmalah (Sura 27) occurs in 513 verses, 19x27, within 19 suras (Table 2). If the false Verses 9:128-129 were included, the number of verses containing the word "God" would have become 514, and this phenomenon would have disappeared.

[7] The word "Elaah" which means "god" occurs in Verses 9:129. The total occurrence of this word in the Quran is 95, 19x5. The inclusion of 9:128-129 causes this word to increase by 1, to 96.

[8] The INDEX TO THE WORDS OF THE QURAN, lists 116 "Rasool" (Messenger) words. One of these words is in 9:128. By removing this false verse, 115 "Rasool" words remain. Another "Rasool" word which must be excluded from counting is in 12:50, since it refers to the "messenger of Pharaoh," not the messenger of God. Thus, the total occurrence of "Rasool" of God is 114, 19x6.

[9] Another important word that occurs in the false Verses 9:128-129 is the word "Raheem" (Merciful). This word is used in the Quran exclusively as a name of God, and its total count is 114, 19x6, after removing the word "Raheem" of 9:128, which refers to the prophet. According to 7:188, 10:49, and 72:21 the Prophet did not possess any power of mercy.

[10] The INDEX lists 22 occurrences of the word " `Arsh" (Throne). After removing the false injection 9:129, and the " `Arsh" of Joseph which occurs in 12:100, and the " `Arsh" of the Queen of Sheba (27:23), we end up with 19 " `Arsh" words. This proves that the word " `Arsh" of 9:129 does not belong in the Quran.

[11] The Quranic command "Qul" (Say) occurs in the Quran 332 times. Also, the word "Qaaloo" (They said) occurs the same number of times, 332. Since the false Verse 9:129 contains the word "Qul" (Say), its inclusion would have destroyed this typical Quranic phenomenon.

[12] The Quran contains 6234 numbered verses and 112 un-numbered verses (Basmalahs). Thus, the total number of verses in the Quran is 6346, 19x334. The false Verses 9:128-129 violate this important criterion of the Quran's code.

[13] In addition to violating the numbers of words as listed above, 9:128-129 violate the Quran's mathematical structure. When we add the number of verses in each sura, plus the sum of verse numbers (1+2+3+... +n, where n=number of verses), plus the number of each sura, the cumulative total for the whole Quran comes to 346199, or 19x19x959. This phenomenon confirms the authenticity of every verse in the Quran, while excluding 9:128-129. Table 3 is an abbreviated illustration of the calculations of Item 13. This phenomenon is impossible if the false Verses 9:128-129 are included.

[14] When we carry out the same calculations as in Item 13 above,but for the 85 un-initialed suras only, which include Sura 9, the cumulative total is also a multiple of 19. The cumulative total for all un-initialed suras is 156066, or 19x8214. This result depends on the fact that Sura 9 consists of 127 verses, not 129. The data are shown in Table 4. The false verses would have destroyed this criterion.

[15] By adding the sura numbers of all un-initialed suras (85 suras), plus their number of verses, from the beginning of the Quran to the end of Sura 9 we get 703, 19x37. The detailed data are shown in Table 5.

This phenomenon depends on the fact that Sura 9 consists of 127 verses.

[16] By adding the sura number of the un-initialed suras, plus the number of verses, plus the sum of verse numbers from the missing Basmalah (9:1) to the end of the Quran, the grand total comes to 116090, or 19x6110. These data are in Table 6. If Verses 9:128-129 are included, the number of verses for Sura 9 becomes 129, and the grand total becomes 116349, not a multiple of 19.

[17] When the same calculations of Item 16 are done for all the verses from the missing Basmalah of Sura 9 to the extra Basmalah of Sura 27, the grand total comes to 119966, or 19x6314. This phenomenon would be destroyed, and the total would no longer be divisible by 19,if the number of verses in Sura 9 were 129. Since this phenomenon is also related to the absence of Basmalah from Sura 9, it is explained and the detailed data are given in table form in Appendix 29.

[18] When the same calculations of Items 16 and 17 are carried out from the missing Basmalah (9:1) to the verse where the number 19 is mentioned (74:30), we find that the grand total comes to 207670, or 19x10930 (Table 7). Sura 9 must consist of 127 verses.

[19] Sura 9 consists of 127 verses. The digits of 127 add up to 1+2+7 = 10. Let us look at all the verses whose digits add up to 10, from the missing Basmalah of Sura 9, to the extra Basmalah of Sura 27. If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the grand total would be 2472, instead of 2470 (19x130); 2472 is not a multiple of 19, and this phenomenon would have disappeared. The data are in Table 8.

[20] The falsifiers wanted us to
believe that Sura 9 consists of
129 verses. The number 129 ends
with the digit "9."

Let us look at the first sura and the
last sura whose number of verses
ends with the digit "9."

These are Sura 10 and Sura 104.
By adding the sura number, plus
the number of verses, plus the sum
of verse numbers, from Sura 10 to
Sura 104, we get a grand total that
equals 23655, or 19x1245. The
details are shown in Table 9.

The inclusion of Sura 9 with the
wrong number of verses, 129,
would have altered both the sum
of verse numbers and the cumulative
total - the sum of verse numbers
would have become 627+129=756,
and the cumulative total would not be
23655 - and the Quran's code would
have been violated (Table 9).

[21] The false injection consisted
of Verses 128 and 129 at the end
of Sura 9. If we look at the numbers
128 and 129, we see two 1's, two
2's, one 8, and one 9.

Now let us look at all the verses
in the Quran,and count all the 1's
we see. This means the 1's we see
in verses 1, 10, 11, 12, 13... 21, 31,
and so on.

The total count of the 1's is 2546
(19x134), provided the correct
number of verses in Sura 9, 127, is
used. If 128 and 129 are included,
the grand total becomes 2548, which
is not a multiple of 19 (Table 11).

[22] Since Sura 9 is an un-initialed
sura, let us look at all the verse
numbers in the 85 un-initialed suras
and count all the 1's we see.

As shown in Table 10, the total count
of the digit "1" in the un-initialed
suras is 1406, or 19x74. Obviously,
if Sura 9consisted of 129 verses, we
would see two additional 1's, from 128
and 129, and the code would be violated.

[23] Following the same process
explained in Items 22 and 23 for the
digit "1," let us count all the 2's, 8's
and 9's in all the verse numbers of the
whole Quran.

As shown in Table 11, the total count
of all the 2's, 8's, and 9'sis 3382, or
19x178. This makes the grand total
of all the 1's, 2's, 8's, and 9's
2546+3382 = 5928, 19x312.

In this remarkable phenomenon, we
considered every single verse in the
Quran, and examined the individual
digits that make up Verses 128 and
129. Since 128 and 129 contain 6
digits, the inclusion of these human
injections causes the total count of
these digits in the whole Quran to be
5928+6 = 5934, not a multiple of 19.

[24] The total count of all the digits (1 through 9) in all the verse numbers of the 85 un-initialed suras, including Sura 9 with 127 verses, is 27075, or 19x19x75.

[25] Adding up the digits of the Quran's suras and verses produces a multiple of 19, provided the correct number of verses for Sura 9, 127, is taken. To do this, you make a list of the Quran's 114 suras and the number of verses in each sura. Add the digits of every sura number. The sum of digits of 10=1, 11=2, 12=3, 99=18, and so on. The total for all the suras is 975. The same thing is done for the numbers of verses in every sura. For example, Sura 2 consists of 286 verses. The digits of 286 add up to 2+8+6=16. For Sura 9, the digits of its number of verses add up to 1+2+7=10. The total for all 114 suras is 906. Thus, the grand total for the sum of digits of all the suras and verses is 975+906 = 1881 = 19x99. Naturally, this observation would not be possible if Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses. Table 12 is abbreviated to illustrate the calculations.

[26] Miraculously, if we calculate the sum of digits for every sura in the Quran, and multiply the sum for each sura by the sum of digits of its number of verses, instead of adding, we still end up with a grand total that is a multiple of 19. For example, Sura 2 has 286 verses. The sum of digits of 2+8+6=16. So you multiply 2 by 16, and you get 32, instead of adding 2+16 as we did in Item 26. This is done for every sura in the Quran. The grand total for all the suras is 7771, or 19x409. Once again, every single verse in the Quran is confirmed, while the false verses are utterly rejected. See Table 13.

[27] Another truly awesome phenomenon: Sura 9 is an odd-numbered sura, and if we carry out the calculations described above for the odd-numbered suras only, we find that the total for the suras is 513 (19x27), the total for the verses is 437 (19x23), and the grand total for both is 513+437 = 950 (19x50).

Table 14 illustrates this remarkable phenomenon.

[28] Let us take all the suras that consist of 127
verses or less. There are 105 such suras. The sum
of the sura numbers of these 105 suras, plus the
sum of their verse numbers is 10963, or 19x577.
Sura 9 is the only sura that has 127 verses. See Table 15.

If Sura 9 did consist of 129 verses, it would not be
included in this list of suras, the total would be 10827 (10963-136), this phenomenon would have disappeared,
and the Quran's code would have been violated.

[29] Since Sura 9 is odd-numbered, and its number of verses is also odd, let us look at all the odd-numbered suras whose number of verses is also odd. This gives
us 27 suras: 1, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 25, 27, 29, 33, 35, 39, 43, 45, 57, 63, 81, 87, 91, 93, 97, 101, 103, 105, 107, 111, and 113. They consist of 7, 127, 123, 43, 99, 111,
77, 93, 69, 73, 45, 75, 89, 37, 29, 11, 29, 19, 15, 11, 5, 11, 3, 5, 7, 5, and 5 verses, respectively. The sum of
these sura numbers, plus their sum of verse numbers is
2774, 19x146. If we take the wrong number of verses
for Sura 9 , i.e., 129, this miracle disappears.

[30] The correct number of verses in Sura 9 is 127, and this is a prime number - it is not divisible by any number except 1, and itself.

Let us look at all the suras whose number of verses is a prime number. These are Suras 1, 9, 13, 33, 43, 45, 57, 63, 81, 87, 93, 97, 101, 103, 105, 107, 111, and 113. The numbers of verses in these suras are 7, 127, 43, 73, 89, 37, 29, 11, 29, 19, 11, 5, 11, 3, 5, 7, 5, and 5, respectively. If you add the digits of these suras, you get 137, while the digits of the verses add up to 129. This makes the grand total of all the digits 137+129 = 266 = 19x14.

[31] The distorters added two false
verses to Sura 9, and this caused the
sura to have 129 verses. Since 129
consists of 3 digits, and is divisible
by 3, let us look at the suras whose
number of verses is divisible by 3,
and consists of 3 digits. The total of
these sura numbers is 71, and the total
number of verses is 765. This produces
a grand total of 71 + 765 = 836, or
19x44. The data are shown in Table 16.

If Sura 9 had 129 verses, it would have
been included in this table, and would
have destroyed this phenomenon.

[32] If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses,
as the falsifiers would like us to believe,
then let us look at all the suras which
consist of 129 verses or more. There
are 8 such suras. Their data are shown
Table 17.

If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the
total number of verses would have been
1577 + 129 = 1706, not a multiple of 19.

[33] The numbers 127, 128 and 129
have two digits in common, "1" and
"2." Let us consider all the suras whose
number of verses contains the digits 1
and 2. By adding the sura numbers plus
the numbers of verses, we get 1159,
19x61.

See Table 18.

If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the total
would have become 1159+2 = 1161, not
a multiple of 19.

[34] Sura 9 is a single-digit sura whose
number of verses contains the digits 1 and 2.
There is only one other sura that possesses
these traits: Sura 5 is a single-digit sura, and
it consists of 120 verses. As shown in
Table 19, the number of verses in these two
suras is 120+127 = 247 = 19x13.

If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the total
would have been 247+2 = 249, not a
multiple of 19.

[35] We looked at all the suras whose
number of verses contains "1" and "2."
Let us now look at all the suras whose number
of verses begins with the digit "1." There are 30
suras that possess this quality: Suras 4, 5, 6, 9,
10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 23, 37, 49, 60, 61,
62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 82, 86, 87, 91, 93, 96, 100, and 101.

Their numbers of verses are 176, 120, 165, 127, 109, 123, 111, 128, 111, 110, 135, 112, 118, 182, 18, 13,
14, 11, 11, 18, 12, 12, 19, 17, 19, 15, 11, 19, 11, and 11. The sum of verse numbers (1+2+3+...+n) for these
30 suras is 126122, or 19x6638.

If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, the sum of their verse numbers would have been 126122 + 128 + 129 =
126379, and this total is not a multiple of 19.

[36] Sura 9 consists of 127 verses, and 9+1+2+7 equals 19. Let us look at all the suras whose digits of sura and verses add up to 19. There are 10 suras that meet this specification, and the total of their sura numbers and numbers of verses is 1216, or 19x64. The data are shown in Table 20.

Mr. Gatut Adisoma of Masjid Tucson made the following two discoveries.

[37] Sura 9 consists of 127 verses, and (9)
plus (1+2+7) add up to 19. There are three
other suras in the whole Quran whose sura
digits add up to 9 and the digits of their
number of verses add up to 10. These are
suras 9, 45, 54, and 72. They consist of
127, 37, 55, and 28 verses, respectively.
The total number of verses in these three
suras is 247, 19x13.

If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses, it would
not be included in this table to begin with.
See Table 21.

[38] If Sura 9 consisted of 129 verses as
the distorters claimed, then there is only
one other sura in the whole Quran whose
sura digits add up to 9, and its number of
verses' digits add up to 12, namely Sura 27.

As shown in Table 22, this combination, with
129 verses for Sura 9, does not conform with
the Quran's code.

[39] Let us assume for awhile that Sura 9
consists of 129 verses. Since the number
129 ends with the digit "9," let us look at
all the suras where the number of verses
ends with the digit "9."

We find 13 suras in the Quran whose number
of verses ends with the digit "9." They are
Suras 10, 15, 29, 43, 44, 48, 52, 57, 81, 82,
87, 96, and 104. Their numbers of verses are
109, 99, 69, 89, 59, 29, 49, 29, 29, 19, 19, 19,
and 9, respectively.

As illustrated by Table 23, many conform
with the Quran's code only if Sura 9 is
excluded; it does not not consist of 129
verses. Without Sura 9, the total number
of verses

in these 13 suras is 627, 19x33. Additionally,
the sura number, plus the number of verses,
plus the sum the sum of verse numbers, add
up to 23655, or 19x1245. These phenomena
would have disappeared if Sura 9 consisted of
129 verses.

[40] Sura 9 is an odd-numbered sura
whose number of verses ends with the
digit "9." Let us now look at all the
odd-numbered suras whose number
of verses ends with "9." As shown in
Table 24, the total of sura number and
number of verses in these suras is 646, or 19x34.
If Sura 9 had 129 verses, it would have
been included in this group,
and the total would have been
646+129+9 = 784, which is not a
multiple of 19.

[41] By now, it is incontrovertibly
proven that Sura 9 consists of 127
verses. Let us now look at the suras
whose number of verses ends with "7."

There are 7 such suras; they are
Suras 1, 9, 25, 26, 45, 86,
and 107. Their numbers of verses are 7,
127, 77, 227, 37, 17, and 7 verses,
respectively. The grand total of sura
numbers plus number of verses for these
seven suras is 798, 19x42. The details
are shown in Table 25. Thus, every
sura whose number of verses ends
with the digit "7," including Sura 9,
conforms with the code.

[42] The last two verses of Sura 9
are 126 and 127. Since the falsifiers
added two verses, let us look at the
last two verses of every sura in the
Quran, and count the digit "7," all
of them, among these last two verses.



As shown in Table 26, the total number
of the digit "7" among the last two
verses of every sura in the Quran is
38, 19x2.

If the last verse in Sura 9 was 129
instead of 127, the number of
occurrences of the digit "7" would have
been 37, not 38, and this criterion
would have been destroyed.

[43] Assuming that Sura 9 consists of
129 verses, let us look at all the
suras that contain a verse No. 129.
This means that we look at all the
suras that consist of 129 or more
verses. For example, Sura 2 consists
of 286 verses. Therefore, it contains
a verse that is assigned the number
"129." We then take this verse and
add it to all the other verses
assigned the number 129 throughout
the Quran. Under this assumption,
there are 9 suras that contain a
verse No. 129. Interestingly, we find
that the total of sura numbers of these 9
suras is a multiple of 19 (114), while the
total for the nine 129's can be a multiple
of 19 if 2 is deducted from their total.
In other words, we are told that one of
of these 9 suras contains 2 extra verses.
The details are in Table 27.

When we add 114, plus 1161, and remove 2,
we get 1273, or 19x67. Compare this total
(1273) with the total reported in the Item
44 below. Of the 9 suras listed in Table 27,
which one has the extra 2 verses? The answer
is provided in Item 44.

[44] To pinpoint the location of these two
false verses, let us look at all the suras
that contain a verse No. 128, while continu-
ing to assume that Sura 9 consists of 129
verses. This will give us the same list of
suras as in Table 27, and also bring in Sura
16 which has precisely 128 verses.

As shown in Table 28, Sura 9 stands out in
glaring disharmony; it is singled out as the
sura that contains the false verses. The
total of suras and verses becomes divisible
by 19 only if Sura 9 is removed. Note that
the divisible total, after removing Sura 9,
is 1273, 19x67, which is the same total
obtained in Item 43 above after removing 2
verses. This remarkable phenomenon proves
that Sura 9 could not contain a verse No.
128.

[45] Sura 9 is an un-initialed sura whose
last two verses are 126 and 127. Let us take
the 85 un-initialed suras, and add up the
numbers of the last two verses in each sura.
For example, the last two verses in Sura 1
are 6 and 7. Add 6+7 and you get 13. The next
un-initialed sura is Sura 4; its last two
verses are 175 and 176. Add 175+176 and you
get 351. Do this for all un-initialed suras.
The data are in Table 29. Thus, the last two
verses of Sura 9 are confirmed to be 126 and
127.

[46] Let us now take the last two
verses in every sura in the Quran,
initialed and un-initialed, and add
the digits of the last two verses in
each sura (Table 30). It is readily
obvious that the last two verses of
every sura in the Quran are divinely
fixed, and divinely guarded through
this intricate mathematical code. The
last two verses of Sura 9 are confir-
med to be 126 & 127, not 128 & 129.
