The object of worship is God ALONE. The Muslims, however, have been preoccupied with their idolization of the Prophet in much the same way as the Christians’ preoccupation with Jesus. The only difference being that the Muslims are not aware of their idolatry.

In the process of exalting and idolizing a dead, powerless, and totally unaware human being (see 39:30), the Muslims have disobeyed the Prophet, and forgot the only one who created them, the only one who is eternally in control, the only one who provides for them, the only one who terminates their life, the only one who will resurrect them, the only one who will call them to account, and the only one who will place them in Heaven or Hell.

The function of every messenger has been defined in Qur’an as delivering the message LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH (there is no god except God) (see 21:25). Now, let us put things in perspective. Our Creator informs us that Qur’an is the only utterance by Muhammad to be upheld as THE ONLY SOURCE OF RELIGIOUS TEACHING (Quran 6:19 and 69:38-47). This is affirmed by the strongest oath in Qur’an:

“I swear by everything you see, and everything you do not see. (this certainly covers everything in the universe). This is the utterance of an honorable messenger. It is not the utterance of a poet; rarely do you believe. Nor is it the utterance of a soothsayer, rarely do you take heed. A revelation from the Lord of the universe. And, if he (Muhammad) ever uttered any other religious teachings, we would have punished him severely, and we would have cut the revelation to him. None of you could have protected him against us.” (Qur’an 69:38-47) .

Now that we see that Qur’an is decreed by God, through the Prophet’s mouth, as THE ONLY RELIGIOUS TEACHINGS UTTERED BY MUHAMMAD, let us examine the Muslims’ daily disobedience of the Prophet.

The wise and fortunate Muslim will readily give up his inherited customs and religious ideas in favor of God’s commandments that came out of the Prophet’s mouth. The unfortunate ones, on the other hand, would stubbornly adhere to what they found their parents and scholars doing:

“When told, ‘You shall follow these revelations of God,’ they say, ‘No, we only follow what we found our parents doing’” (Quran 31:21)

“Their inevitable destiny is Hell. That is because they found their parents astray, and they readily followed in their footsteps.” (Quran 37:68-70)

Here is a list of daily transgressions by the average Muslim against God and the Prophet:


Verse 285 of Sura 2 states: “The messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and so did the believers. All of them believe in God, His angels, His scriptures, and His messengers, saying, ‘We make no distinction among His messengers.’ And they say, ‘We hear and we obey. Forgive us, our Lord, to You is

the final destiny.’”

It is of course deliberate, and extremely significant that the statement “WE HEAR AND WE OBEY” comes immediately after the statement “WE MAKE NO DISTINCTION AMONG HIS MESSENGERS.” For it is a glaring fact of life in the Muslim World that the Muslims have defiantly declared “WE HEAR, BUT WE DISOBEY.” It is a fact of life in the Muslim World that the Muslims commit gross distinctions among God’s messengers by exalting Muhammad over and above all the rest. They bestow extravagant attention on the Prophet Muhammad, while neglecting all other messengers of God. Certainly, if Moses were alive today, and he walked the streets of Cairo, Tehran, or Karachi, he will never hear any Muslim declare: “ASH-HADU ALLA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH, WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOSES RASOOLUL-LAH.” The same would be observed by the Prophet Jesus, or Jonah, or Saleh, or Lot, or Solomon, or any other messenger.

This blatant disobedience of the commandments that came out of the Prophet Muhammad’s mouth is so deeply engrained that the average Muslim is now literally unable to say “LA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH (there is no god except God) by itself, without adding the name of Muhammad somehow. Moreover, they readily flunk the Qur’anic criterion that distinguishes true Muslims from false Muslims:

“When God ALONE is advocated, the hearts of those who do not believe in the Hereafter shrink with aversion. But when others are mentioned besides God, they become happy.” (Quran 39:45)


During the last 14 centuries traditions, customs, superstitions and innovations have crept into Islam. Gradually, these distortions came to be vested with such religious solemnity that anyone who questions them finds HIMSELF regarded as the dangerous innovator and heretic. Islam today is a precious jewel that is buried under piles upon piles of man-made innovations. Our aim is to eradicate all distortions and present the jewel of Islam to the world.

A PROFOUND MIRACLE: Divine Manipulation of the Computer Produces Correct Results, regardless of human errors.

Back in 1968 I developed the hypothesis that perhaps the Qur’an’s “mysterious” alphabets (A.L.M., Q, N, T.S.M, etc.) possess specific distribution patterns within Qur’an. To test this hypothesis, I wrote the whole Qur’an into the computer, using English symbols for each Arabic character. The first output from the computer was published in 1972 in my book entitled MIRACLE OF QUR’AN: SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MYSTERIOUS ALPHABETS.” What I learned from that work was that the Qur’an’s mysterious initials occurred in their suras at the highest frequency; I knew nothing about the number 19 at that time. In retrospect, the number 19 was all over the place, as seen now on the pages of that first book, but it just was not God’s will that we see it.

What concerns me in this article is that the frequency of the letter “N ن ” where it occurs as an initial (Sura 68) appears in those first computer data, as printed in that 1972 book, as 133. This is of course the correct number, or the number that is supposed to be. However, what I fed the computer was only 132 N’s. That is because I used an Egyptian printing of Qur’an where the initial “N ن” is not spelled out, as is the case in the original Qur’an.

When it was God’s will to unveil His Miracle in Qur’an, and the role of the number 19 (see Qur’an 74:25-30), the frequency of the letter. “N ن” fit right in with the rest of the miracle, since the number 133 is a multiple of 19. A few months after publishing the results, the letters came pouring in to inform me that the frequency of the letter “N ن” is in fact 132, not 133. The absence, addition, or alteration of one word in Qur’an, of course, destroys the whole system; the whole mathematical system collapses. I then embarked on a world-wide search for the oldest Qur’ans and found out that the original Qur’an and the oldest copies did indeed spell out the Qur’anic initial “N ن.” into “Noon نون

How did the computer report the correct result, despite the error in feeding? The only answer is: Obviously, we were dealing with God’s miracle in His Final Scripture, and He has manipulated the computer to inform the world of the correct data.

The Figure below is a photocopy from the 1972 book, showing the number of N’s in Sura 68 as 133. The computer did not pay attention to the data I fed into it. How did the computer generate an extra “N ن” to give us the correct number??!!

Muslim Perspective - Significance of the Mysterious Alphabets

That was not the only incident where God has manipulated the computer in order to show us His Miracle. When I wrote the Qur’an into the computer, the number of the word “Allah” that I fed to the computer was in fact 2699. This is the wrong number. But the computer gave us the number that is supposed to be, namely 2698, or 19 x 142.

What I fed into the computer included one extra word “Allah” from the last two verses of Sura 9. We know now that those two verses do not belong in Qur’an (see the March Issue of MP). Thus, the computer did not pay any attention to the data that I fed into it. It gave us the correct count of the word “Allah” despite the erroreneous feeding.

The extra word “Allah” was discovered during the comprehensive review of Qur’an and the computer data at the word for word level, MANUALLY. Ironically, the computer skipped one word “Allah” in Sura 9. In my two books reporting the results: THE COMPUTER SPEAKS: GOD’S MESSAGE TO THE WORLD & QUR’AN: VISUAL PRESENTATION OF THE MIRACLE, it was noted that the computer reported only one word “Allah” in verse 15 of Sura 9. This verse contains two, not one, word “Allah.”

When I began this computer research into Qur’an, I had pledged that I will never say anything about the mathematical system of Qur’an unless the results are “unanimous,” i.e., without any discrepancies or exceptions. Had the computer reported 132 N’s back in 1972, the world would have never heard anything about the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, at least not from me.

The Saudi tyrants have declared war on God, and God is sure to win. And the tyrants are fuming mad at me because I turned down their offer to buy me for a million dollars. They have grown accustomed to see our ‘Ulama bow down before their mighty dollar, and readily join their flimsy army of Satan.

The downfall of the Saudi dynasty is now assured. Literally millions of Muslims around the world have seen God’s miracle of Qur’an that is based on purely physical, incontrovertible facts, the Qur’an’s miraculous mathematical system.

In the face of this phenomenal popularity among all enlightened Muslims, the blind Saudi dynasty has mobilized a number of “Ulama” who are willing to make asses of themselves in return for a few dollars.

As reported in the last issue of M.P., we have witnessed the second ranking ‘Alem in the Saudi Religious Hierarchy, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Qa’ood state that BASMALA does NOT consist of 19 letters, and the Qur’an does NOT consist of 114 (19×6) Suras!!! To every Muslim who knows anything about Qur’an, these strange statements are equivalent to saying that the sun does NOT rise from the East. How arrogant can they get??!!

I apologize to all the asses of the world for insulting them by stating that a highly placed scholar who makes such absurd statements is making an ass of himself.

Based on the word of God, that He forsakes those who forsake Him, and humiliates those who declare war on Him, I herein predict that Fahd shall be the FINAL SAUDI KING.

More Evidence Confirms The Falsehood Of The Last Two Verses Of Sura 9

(1) All classic and modern references dealing with the documentation of Qur’an agree that it was scrupulously written down out of the Prophet’s mouth, immediately following revelation.

As reported here in the March issue, the process of documentation took place during Abu Bakr’s era. Abu Bakr and Omar appointed Zeid Ibn Thabet (the Prophet’s secretary) to collect and document Qur’an. The three men established a criterion: that every single verse had o be confirmed through the multiplicity of sources; a minimum of two sources was agreed upon. EVERY SINGLE VERSE OF QUR’AN HAD TO BE CONFIRMED BY A MINIMUM OF TWO WITNESSES. This criterion was so strictly observed that when Omar came up with a verse, it was not accepted from him because no other witness was found to confirm that verse.

Yet, the same classic and modern reference inform us that the last two verses of Sura 9 were found with only one source, namely, Khuzeimah Ibn Thabet Al-Ansary!!! Thus, the last two verses of Sura 9 were the only verses in Qur’an that failed to meet the criterion for documentation into the Qur’an.

Naturally, some intelligent Muslim had asked the inevitable question: “Why was Omar’s verse rejected, when Omar was an intimate friend of the Prophet from early Islam, a son-in-law of the Prophet, the second Khalifa, and a man nick-named Al-Farouk because he was staunch in adhering to the truth and rejecting falsehood, while the last two verses of Sura 9 were accepted from a relative unknown, Khuzeimah Ibn Thabet Al-Ansary (a late Medinan Muslim)???”

Here is what the classic and modern references tell us about that. When this question came up, someone said, “Oh, I heard the Messenger of God, may God exalt him and bless him, say, “One testimony by Khuzeimah equals two!!!” (GIMME A BREAK!)

Are we going to be fooled by such primitive liars who are trying to tamper with Qu’an? One cannot help but ask, “How about the fellow who claimed that he had heard the Prophet state that one testimony by Khuzeimah equals two? Is HIS testimony also equals two???!!!

As reported in the March Issue of MP, most probably the last two verses of Sura 9 were injected into Qur’an by the Prophet’s idolizers much later than the time of Abu Bakr, Omar and Zeid. The stories were then fabricated (and one lie led to another) in order to justify the existence of the alien verses, and to give them credibility through the names of Abu Bakr, Omar and Zeid Ibn Thabet.

However, God has provided a formidable standard, the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, in order to fulfill His promise regarding the perfect preservation of Qur’an. It is the Miracle of Qur’an that enabled us to uncover the blasphemy and restore Qur’an to its pristine purity. God, of course, has pointed out the location of the blasphemy by refusing to start Sura 9 with His Holy Name.

(2) The following is reported in the classic and modern references dealing with documentation of Qur’an:

“Abdullah Ibn Ahmad in Zawa’ed Al Musnad, and Ibn Mardaweih reported that Ubayy Ibn Kaab (the famous revelation writer) told of collecting and recording Qur’an during the reign of Abu Bakr. He said that a group of scribes were writing Sura 9, and when they reached the verse that says: ‘God has turned their hearts away, for they are people who do not understand’ (Verse 127), they decided that it was the last verse of Sura 9. But Ubayy Ibn Kaab told them that the Prophet had read to him two extra verse in this Sura: ‘A messenger has come to you from amongst you who cares very much about you….. to the end.’”

At the same time, all these references agree that Zeid Ibn Thabet found the last two verses of Sura 9 with Khuzeimah, and “did not find them with anyone else.” The obvious discrepancy is that Zeid Ibn Thabet was an intimate friend of Ubayy Ibn Kaab, and it simply does not make sense that Ubayy would have these two verses and would not tell his friend Zeid about them. Both men were prime writers of the Qur’anic revelation. God thus exposes the liars, and preserves His message to the world.


The last two verses of Sura 9 are documented as “Meccan” as we see above. It should be noted here that the only source of these two verses was, supposedly, Khuzeimah Ibn Thabet Al-Ansary, a late Medinan Muslim. Additionally, Sura 9 WAS THE LAST SURA EVER REVEALED IN MEDINA.


It simply defies all logic that the last Medinan Sura should contain Meccan verses.
When the Prophet immigrated to Medina, the Qur’an continued to be revealed. Gabriel told the Prophet that Medinan verses belonged in Meccan suras (revealed before Hijra). This is why we find Medinan verses within Meccan suras, but not the other way around. A careful study revealed that with the exception of one sura (8) which straddled the Meccan and Medinan eras, no Meccan verses are found in Medinan suras. THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS SURA 9, WHICH HAPPENS TO BE THE VERY LAST SURA EVER REVEALED IN MEDINA. God’s exposure of the liars is nothing short of remarkable.

Certainly, it doesn’t make sense that the angel Gabriel would come to the Prophet and say, “I will give you two verses now that belong in a sura I will reveal to you 12 or 15 years from now.”

We will no longer concern ourselves with Moses, Jesus, Mary, Muhammad, Ali, Hussein, the Saints, or the Imams ….THE ERA OF GOD ALONE is here. Follow this exciting development on the future pages of M.P.

Driven by the powerful emotions of idol-worship, the Prophet’s idolizers transgressed against Qur’an. However, God’s promise to protect and preserve Qur’an has been fulfilled through the Qur’an’s miraculous mathematical code.

Has God Forsaken The Arabs?

If you turn away we will substitute other people in your place, and they will not be like you.


The number 19 is the numerical value of the Arabic word “WAHED = ONE” (و (W) = 6, ا (A) = 1, ح (H) = 8, & د (D) = 4 : 6+1+8+4=19). The message GOD IS ONE pervades the whole Qur’an through a miraculous mathematical system where the number 19 is the common denominator.

This system is based entirely on PHYSICAL, UNDENIABLE, FACTS such as the 19 letters in the Qur’an’s opening statement (Basmalah), the fact that Qur’an consists of 114 (19 x 6) suras, the fact that all the mysterious letters that prefix half the Qur’an (ALM, Q, N, Ya seen, etc.) occur in their suras a number of times which is ALWAYS a multiple of 19, in addition to many other physical, incontrovertible, facts.

This overwhelming miracle of Qur’an is recognized by God Himself as “ONE OF THE GREATEST MIRACLES” (74:35), with the number 19 specifically mentioned (see 74:30-35). The Miracle is simple and straightforward, and has been perfectly understood and fully appreciated by thousands of people around the world; many embraced Islam because of the Miracle alone. The Miracle was understood and appreciated by Americans, Canadians, Egyptians, Malaysians, British, Iranians, Turks, Australians, Africans, Europeans, Indonesians, Philippinos, Japanese, Chinese and many other nationalities. BUT NOT A SINGLE ARAB? WHY!!! HAS GOD FORSAKEN THE ARABS?

An overwhelming miracle has been discovered in Qur’an. The miracle is characterized by the fact that it consists entirely of undeniable physical facts. Over the last fifteen years, using computers, an intricate mathematical system has emerged within Qur’an. Five books and numerous summaries have been published around the world detailing this awesome miracle of the Qur’an.

The Qur’an itself has stated that this miraculous mathematical system constitutes THE MIRACLE OF QUR’AN (see Quran 10:1, 12:1, 13:1, 15:1, 26:2, 27:1, 28:2, 31:2 & 74:25-35). Furthermore, the Qur’an has stated that it contains a secret that will, in time, prove that Qur’an is indeed the word of God, (see Quran 25:4-6), and that THIS SECRET WILL BE UNVEILED AT A FUTURE TIME(see Quran 10:20).

Thousands of people around the world have examined the miracle of Qur’an, and all those permitted by God to understand it were unanimously overwhelmed. Thousands of people have understood and appreciated the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, and many converted to Islam as a direct result.

Muslims of all races, nationalities, educational levels and professions have enthusiastically supported the miracle; the only exception has been THE ARABS. One of the strangest phenomena I have ever witnessed is the fact that NOT A SINGLE ARAB WAS PERMITTED TO UNDERSTAND OR APPRECIATE THE MIRACLE OF QUR’AN. Not only were the Arabs prevented by God from understanding the Qur’an’s mathematical miracle, they are the only people in the world who are fighting it; YES, FIGHTING IT. They allocated budgets, and spent a lot of money to fight God and His miracle. In the process, they have committed some of the wierdest blasphemies I have ever seen. The following example is a perfect illustration:

Last July, I visited Vancouver, BC, to speak on the Miracle of Qur’an. Some brothers and sisters in Vancouver worked very hard to publicise the Miracle, and placed advertisements in Vancouver’s newspapers that we now possess physical evidence proving that Qur’an is God’s message to the world. When the time came to deliver my lecture, many Christian Canadians responded to the ads and came to witness the Miracle. As it turned out, some Arab residents of Vancouver had contacted the Saudi embassy in Ottowa, and soon the second man in the Saudi Religious Heirarchy was dispatched to Vancouver to oppose me. As soon as I finished, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Qa’ood (the Saudi religious authority) stood up and negated every single point I made. Unbelievable as this maybe, he actually made the following statements:

(1) The opening statement of Qur’an (Bismillah) does NOT consist of 19 letters !!!

(2) The Quran does NOT consists of 114 suras !!!

He might as well say that the sun does NOT rise from the East.

Of course every Muslim in the world can count the letters in the “BASMALA” and find that they are 19 letters. This is an undeniable (I thought) PHYSICAL FACT.

And every Muslim in the world can pick up any copy of Qur’an and see that it consists of 114 (19 x 6) suras.

But the Christian Canadians who attended the lecture did not know that. Thus, they left the lecture disillusioned and disappointed, while we failed to show them the proof that Qur’an is God’s final message to the world.

The Miracle of Qur’an has been coming out of the computer at Masjid Tucson for many years now, and the Masjid now has many branches around the world. Thousands have understood and appreciated the Miracle and their faith has been strengthened (see 74:31). The people who have seen light around the world, and the people who attend our Masjid on regular basis include Americans, Canadians, British, Egyptians, Indonesians, Malaysians, Iranians, Japanese, Turks, Africans, Europeans, Pakistanis, Indians and many other nationalities; BUT NOT ONE SINGLE ARAB!!!

The Qur’an states at the end of Sura 47 (entitled Muhammad) (47:38) that “If you turn away, we will substitute other people in your place, and they will not be like you.” The Arabs were given the Qur’an for 1400 years. But they have abandoned it completely, and were distracted by human-made fabrications (see details in the accompanying articles). It appears, therefore, that God has indeed carried out His promise, and decided to substitute other people in place of the Arabs. God has finally forsaken the Arabs, because they have turned away form Qur’an (47:38).

The Prophet also disowns the Arabs (his people) on the Day of Judgment (See Quran 25:30), because of their desertion of Qur’an. The Arabs seem to have forgotten that Qur’an is the word of God that came out of the Prophet’s mouth (see 69:38-47).

The explanation of the Arabs’ total and obviously deliberate isolation from Qur’an and its Miracle is thoroughly explained in Verse 57 of Sura 18: “Who is more evil than those who are reminded of God’s revelations, but continue to disregard them, totally heedless? Consequently, we place shields on their hearts to prevent them from understanding, and we place deafness in their ears. Thus, when you invite them to the guidance, they CAN NEVER EVER BE GUIDED.”

Based on my observations during the last fifteen years regarding he Miracle of Qur’an, I herein challenge any Arab to come forward and prove that he has actually understood the Miracle of Qur’an. Let any Arab come forward and prove that I am wrong in believing that God has indeed forsaken the Arabs. None will be happier than me if this happens.

Two False Verses Unveiled In Quran

The Computer Exposes An Historical Crime

Tampering With The Word Of God

Two False Verses Unveiled In Qur’an

An Invitation To All Muslims To Examine The Evidence
Before Removing The Falsehood

Quran 15:9

“Surely, we have sent down this message, and surely, we will preserve it” (15:9)*

The history of tampering with the word of God is as ancient as God’s holy scriptures. Invariably, such tampering has been provoked by powerful human prejudices. One of the most flagrant interferences in the word of God is currently evident in the Torah. Someone was driven by racial bias to alter the name of Abraham’s son in Genesis 22:2 from Ishmael to Isaac. For prejudicial reasons they wanted to bestow the honor on Isaac, father of the Jews, rather than on Ishmael, father of the Arabs. In the process of tampering with the word of God, the guilty party committed a grievious mistake. Furthermore, when the absurdity of the original mistake was discovered, someone tried to cover it up by committing another falsification. Since two wrongs do not make a right, the second mistake proved far more serious.

The oldest translation of the Torah I could find was copyrighted in 1917 by the Jewish Publications Society of America. Its title is THE HOLY SCRIPTURES according to the Masoretic Text, A New Translation with the Aid of Previous Versions, and With Constant Consultation of Jewish Authorities.

Genesis 16:15-16 of this translation states:

And Hagar bore Abram a son; and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael. And Abram was foursome and six (86) years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.

And Genesis 21:5 states:

And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.

This means that Ishmael was 14 years old when his brother Isaac was born. In other words, Ishmael was Abraham’s only son for 14 years. Yet, Genesis 22:1-2 of this translation states:

And it came to pass after these things that God did prove Abraham, and said unto him: ‘Abraham’; and he said: ‘Here am I.’ And He said: ‘Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

The tampering is so obvious that subsequent translators tried to get around it by injecting their own version. In another very old (undated) translation, I found the following version of the same verses. This translation is titled: TWENTY FOUR BOOKS OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES, translated by Isaac Leeser. In this translation, Genesis 16:15-16 states:

And Hagar bore abram a son: and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael. And Abram was eighty and six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.

Genesis 21:5 states:

And Abraham was a hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.

Then Genesis 22:1-2 states:

And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and he said unto him, Abraham, and he said, Behold, here am I. And he said, Take now thy son, thy only one, who thou lovest, even Isaac, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I tell thee of.

The compounding of both errors is evident in the recent translations of the Torah. I looked up a translation copyrighted in 1962 by the Jewish Publication Society of America, Philadelphia, titled: THE TORAH, the Five Books of Moses, a new translation of THE HOLY SCRIPTURES according to the Masoretic text.

In this translation, Gensis 16:15-16 states:

And Hagar bore a son to Abram, and Abram gave the son that Hagar bore him the name Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram.

And Genesis 21:5 states:

Now Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.

While Genesis 22:1-2 now reads:

Some time afterward, God put Abraham to the test. He said to him, “Abraham,” and he answered, “Here I am.” And He said, “Take your son, your favored one, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the heights which I will point out to you.”

There is no doubt that Abraham, Isaac, and Ishmael, had they been alive today would have been appalled by this blasphemy.

Two False Verses Unveiled In Qur’an

Unfortunately, the same crime has been committed against the Qur’an. However, because Qur’an is God’s final message to the world, and because the Qur’an’s integrity is guaranteed forever by God, this blatant tampering with the Qur’an has now been exposed. Such exposure guarantees the continued purity of Qur’an.

Before presenting the physical evidence, it should be pointed out that the last two verses of Sura 9 have always been suspect. All classic and modern references dealing with the collection and recording of the original Qur’an have UNANIMOUSLY agreed that these two verses ARE THE ONLY VERSES IN QUR’AN THAT FAILED TO MEET THE CRITERIA SET BY ABU BAKR, OMAR AND ZEID IBN THABET (the original collectors of Qur’an). According to these references, the last two verses of Sura 9 were never confirmed by the criterion of SOURCE MULTIPLICITY. Among the outstanding references that expose this serious discrepancy are:

(1) AL BUKHARY, Vol 6, pp 89-90 and 225-226. (Dar Al-Turath Al-Araby)

(2) AL MUTAKHAB MIN AL SUNNAH, Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, Cairo, Egypt, pp 178-182.

(3) Imam Ismail Ibn Katheer’s AFDAAL AL-QUR’AN AL-KAREEM.

(4) Muhammad Husain Haykal’s AL-SIDDIQ ABU BAKR.


Sahih Bukhari gives three different accounts regarding this subject, and Al-Muntakhab gives two different accounts. As mentioned above, all accounts, in the various references agree that THE LAST TWO VERSES OF SURA 9 ARE THE ONLY VERSES IN QUR’AN THAT FAILED TO CONFORM TO THE RECORDING CRITERIA, specifically the criterion of source multiplicity. One wonders why were these two verses included in Qur’an in the first place!!!

The multiplicity of sources for every single verse in Qur’an was a vital criterion, since it confirms the authenticity of every verse.


The Almighty Creator informed us that the Qur’an contains a certain secret that, in time, will prove that Qur’an is God’s final message to the world.

The disbelievers said, “This (Qur’an) is no more than a fraud fabricated by (Muhammad), with the help of some others.” Indeed, they have committed a blasphemy and a falsehood.

Others said, “(This Quran) is tales from the past that he (Muhammad) had made up; they were dictated to him day and night.”

Say, “It was sent down by the one who knows THE SECRET in the heaven and the earth.” Indeed, He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.
(Qur’an 25:4-6)

Furthermore, the Qur’an states that this miraculous SECRET which is destined to prove the Qur’an’s authenticity shall be unveiled at a future time, not during the lifetime of the Prophet.

They say, “How come no miracle has come down to him from his Lord?” Say, “The future belongs to God, so wait and I will wait along with you.”
(Quran 10:20)

That the number 19 shall play a role in proving the Qur’an’s authenticity is stated in Qur’an 74:25-35. These verses state that anyone who declares that Qur’an is human-made (74:25) shall be proven wrong by means of the number 19 (74:30).

During the last 17 years (1968-1985), intensive research into the Qur’an with the use of computers has produced startling results, and an overwhelming proof of authenticity. In full agreement with Quran (74:25-35), the number 19 has provided the irrefutable evidence. Details of this work have been published in the following books:

(1) Qur’an: The Final Scripture.

(2) The Computer Speaks: God’s Message to the World.

(3) Qur’an: Visual Presentation of the Miracle.

(4) The Glorious Qur’an, Volume 1.

All published by ISLAMIC PRODUCTIONS, 739 E 6th St, Tucson, AZ 85719, USA.

In addition to the list of SIMPLE FACTS where the number 19 is the common denominator, the most powerful physical facts are in the famous mysterious letters of Qur’an which prefix 29 suras. These letters occur in their respective suras ALWAYS IN MULTIPLES OF 19. One has to study the details in the references listed above in order to fully appreciate this awesome Qur’anic miracle.

What concerns us in this Bulletin is the prominent physical fact that the opening verse of Quran (BISMILLAH) consists of 19 letters, and every word in it is mentioned throughout Qur’an a number of time which is CONSISTENTLY A MULTIPLE OF 19. Thus, the first word (Ism = Name) is found in Qur’an exactly 19 times, the second word (Allah = God) is mentioned 2698 times (19 x 142), the third word (Rahman = Gracious) is mentioned 57 times (19 x 3), and the last word (Rahim = Merciful) is mentioned 114 times (19 x 6), plus one time that refers specifically to the Prophet and is not an attribute of God.

During the last three years an extensive study was undertaken to examine the mathematical miracle of Qur’an at the word for word level. The objective was to confirm that the computers did not err, and that the results do conform to the Qur’an as it was originally recorded during the Prophet’s lifetime, and subsequently collected by Zeid Ibn Thabet upon request of Abu Bakr and Omar, then reproduced by Uthman Ibn Affan.

It is the result of this vast review of the computer data that unveiled the shocking crime of tampering with the Qur’an.

Nine violations of the Qur’an’s mathematical code were discovered by the time the review of data was completed. ALL NINE VIOLATIONS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN THE LAST TWO VERSES OF SURA 9. (See the table at the end of this article).

It must be pointed out once more, that the LAST TWO VERSES OF SURA 9 WERE FINGERED AS FAILING TO CONFORM TO THE ESTABLISHED CRITERIA FOR COLLECTION AND RECORDING OF QUR’AN. This was done 1400 years before I was born.

Most probably, these two verses were injected into the Qur’an by the Prophet’s idolizers much later than Abu Bakr, Omar, and Zeid. The story was then invented by the guilty, in order to justify and support such tampering, and to blame the existence of these two alien verses on such great authorities as Abu Bakr, Omar, and Zeid.

It is noreworthy that Sura 9 is the ONLY SURA IN QUR’AN THAT DOES NOT OPEN WITH “THE NAME OF GOD.” God’s advance knowledge and disapproval of the aforementioned blasphemy is manifested in the fact that the BISMILLAH is omitted. Such tampering could never be “In the Name of God.”



The Islam that is being practiced in the Muslim World today is a vastly distorted Islam. we must return to the Islam preached by Muhammad, God’s final prophet. Read the coming issues of MP.

THE MUSLIM PRISONER, Blessing in Disguise?

“You may dislike something which is actually good for you, and you may like something which is actually bad for you.” (Qur’an 2:216).

What appears to be a real disaster may actually be a great blessing in disguise. Our incarcerated brothers may provide a perfect example.

Discovering God and joining His kingdom is the greatest achievement any human being can achieve. If incarceration is what it takes for anyone to attain this precious goal, it is a small price indeed for such a great treasure.

The Qur’an teaches us that if a disbeliever possesses all the treasures of the world, even twice as much, he would readily give it all up in exchange for a believer’s achievement (10:54, 13:18, & 39:47).

If you are a prisoner who discovered the true path to God, and have decided to follow God’s true religion, you are far more fortunate than a billionaire who has failed to discover God.

If you discovered Islam in prison, then incarceration was the greatest blessing that ever happened to you.

It is established that this life is insignificant, when compared to the real life of the eternal Hereafter. Mathematically, when you divide any number by infinity, the product is zero. So, even a thousand years in this world equal a zero when compared to the infinite Hereafter.

With this Qur’anic understanding, we realize that it doesn’t really matter whether we are poor or rich in this world, fat or thin, tall or short, black or white, male or female, beautiful or ugly.

This life, no matter how long, passes like the blink of an eye (16:77).

When God loves someone, He may afflict him or her with a temporary problem just to get his or her attention. This is what Qur’an teaches in Sura 6, Verse 42 and in 7:94.

Blessing in Disguise?

Incarceration may be God’s way of blessing you, and getting your attention. It means that God cares about you. If you respond positively to God’s care, and decide to join His kingdom, then He makes it up to you manyfold. He will appoint you a King on Earth. This is God’s inviolable promise as we see in Qur’an 24:55.

There is one important catch: you must be absolutely positive that you have found the pure Islam, not the Islam that is distorted by traditions and superstitions.
