God’s Messenger of the Covenant [3:81]

Praise be to God! There is no other god except God.

God’s Messenger of the Covenant was a consolidating messenger. His mission was to purify and unify all existing religions into one: Islam (Submission).

Islam is NOT a name; it is a description of one’s total submission and devotion to God ALONE, without idolizing Jesus, Mary, Muhammad, or the saints. Anyone who meets this criterion is a “Muslim” (Submitter). Therefore, one may be a Muslim Jew, a Muslim Christian, a Muslim Hindu, a Muslim Buddhist, or Muslim Muslim.

God’s Messenger of the Covenant delivered God’s proclamation that “The only religion approved by God is Submission” (3:19) and that “Anyone who seeks other than Submission as a religion, it will not be accepted from him/her” (3:85).

Every messenger of God was supported by incontrovertible divine signs proving that he is authorized by the Almighty to deliver His messages. Moses threw down his staff and it turned into a serpent, Jesus healed the leprous and revived the dead by God’s leave, Saaleh’s sign was the famous camel, Abraham walked out of the fire, and Muhammad’s miracle was the Quran (29:50-51).

The Quran (3:81, 33:7, 33:40) and the Bible (Malachi 3:1-3) prophesied the advent of the consolidating messenger, God’s Messenger of the Covenant. It is only befitting that a messenger with such a crucial mission was supported by the most powerful miracle (74:30-35). While the miracles of previous messengers were limited in time and place, God’s miracle which supported His Messenger of the Covenant is perpetual; it can be witnessed by anyone, at anytime, in any place.

Herein you can find physical, examinable, verifiable, and irrefutable evidence that Rashad Khalifa was God’s Messenger of the Covenant.

A Quranic Truth

One of the major prophecies in the Quran is that God’s Messenger of the Covenant was to be sent after all the prophets have come to this world, and after all of God’s scriptures have been delivered.

Verse 3:81 says, “God took a covenant from the prophets, saying, “I will give you the scripture and wisdom. Afterwards, a messenger will come to confirm all existing scriptures. You shall believe in him and support him.” He said, “Do you agree with this, and pledge to fulfill this covenant?” They said, “We agree.” He said, “You have thus borne witness, and I bear witness along with you.

Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall translated 3:81 as follows:

When Allah made (His) covenant with the Prophets, (He said): Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge. And afterward there will come unto you a messenger, confirming that which ye possess. Ye shall believe in him and ye shall help him. He said: Do ye agree, and will ye take up My burden (which I lay upon you) in this (matter)? They answered: We agree. He said: Then bear witness. I will be a witness with you.

We learn from Sura 33 that Muhammad was one of the prophets who made that solemn covenant with God.

Verse 33:7 says, “And when we exacted a covenant from the Prophets, and from thee (O Muhammad) and from Noah and Abraham and Moses and Jesus son of Mary, We took from them a solemn covenant.

Verse 3:81 provides the definitions of “Nabi” (Prophet) and “Rasoul” (Messenger), which is useful for this case. According to the verse, a “Nabi” is a messenger of God who delivers a new scripture, while “Rasoul” is a messenger commissioned by God to confirm existing scripture; he does not bring a new scripture. So, every “Nabi” is a “Rasoul” but not every “Rasoul” is a “Nabi”.

Not every messenger was given a new scripture. It is not logical that God will give a scripture to a prophet, then ask him to keep it exclusively for himself, as stated by some Muslim “scholars” (2:42, 146, 159). Those who are not sufficiently familiar with the Quran tend to think that Aaron was a “Nabi” as stated in 19:53, who did not receive a scripture. However, the Quran clearly states that the statute book was given specifically “to both Moses and Aaron” (21:48, 37:117).

We learn from the Quran, 33:40, that Muhammad was the last prophet   (Nabi), but not the last messenger (Rasoul):

Verse 33:40 says, Muhammad was not the father of any of your men; he was a messenger (Rasoul) of God and the last prophet (Nabi).

This crucial definition is confirmed by the Quran’s mathematical code. The expression used in 33:40, “Muhammad Khaatum Al-Nabiyyeen” (the last   prophet) has a gematrical value of 1349, 19×71, while the value of the erroneous expression “Muhammad Khaatum Al-Mursaleen” (the last messenger) is not a multiple of 19.

From time immemorial, it has been a human trait to reject a contemporary, living messenger. Joseph was declared “the last messenger” (40:34). Yet, many messengers came after him, including Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, and Muhammad.

The Covenant Fulfilled

Although the prophets are dead, as far as this world is concerned, we know that their souls, the real persons, are now in the Garden of Eden where Adam and Eve lived. Several verses enjoin us from thinking that the believers who shed     their bodies and departed this world are dead (2:154, 3:169, 4:69). Although they cannot come back to our world (23:100), they are “alive” in Paradise.

During his Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, Rashad Khalifa, in the early 1970s, Rashad Khalifa, the soul, the real person, not the body, was taken to some place in the universe where he was introduced to all the prophets as God’s Messenger of the Covenant. He was not informed of the details and true significance of this event until Ramadan 1408.

What he witnessed, in sharp consciousness, was that he was sitting still, while the prophets, one by one, came towards him, looked at his face, then nodded their heads. God showed them to him as they had looked in this world, attired in their respective mode of dress. There was an atmosphere of great awe, joy, and respect.

Except for Abraham, none of the prophets were identified to him. He knew that all the prophets were there, including Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, Aaron, David,   Noah, and the rest. He thought that the reason for revealing Abraham’s identity  was that he asked about him. He was taken aback by the strong resemblance he had with his family—himself, his father, his uncles. It was the only time that he wondered, “Who is this prophet who looks like my relatives?” The answer came: “Abraham.” No language was spoken. All communication was done mentally.

The mission of God’s Messenger of the Covenant was to confirm existing scriptures, purify them, and consolidate them into one divine message. The Quran states that such a messenger was charged with restoring God’s message to its pristine purity, to lead the righteous believers—Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus, and others—out of darkness into the light (5:19 & 65:11). He proclaimed that Islam (total submission to God) is the only religion acceptable by God (3:19).

The Proof

The name of God’s Messenger of the Covenant is mathematically coded into the Quran as “Rashad Khalifa.” This is certainly the most appropriate method of introducing God’s messenger to the world in the computer age.

  • God’s great miracle in the Quran is based on the prime number 19, and it remained hidden for 1406 years (19×74). This awesome miracle was predestined by Almighty God to be unveiled through Rashad Khalifa. Hundreds of Muslim and Orientalist scholars during the last 14 centuries have tried in vain, but none of them was permitted to decipher the significance of the Quranic Initials.
  • The Quran is made easy for the sincere believers and seekers (54:17, 22, 32, 40 & 39:28). It is an irrevocable divine law that no one is permitted access to the Quran, let alone its great miracle, unless he or she is a sincere believer who is given specific divine authorization (17:45-46, 18:57, 41:44, 56: 79). The unveiling of the Quran’s miracle through Rashad Khalifa is a major sign of his messengership.
  • The root word of the name “Rashad” is “Rashada” (to uphold the right guidance). This root word is mentioned in the Quran 19 times. Nineteen is the Quran’s common denominator
  • The word “Rashad” occurs in 40:29 & 38. The word “Khalifa” occurs in 2:30 and 38:26. The first “Khalifa” refers to a non-human “Khalifa,” namely, Satan, while the second occurrence (Sura 38), refers to a human “Khalifa.” If we  add the numbers of suras and verses of “Rashad” (40:29, 38) and “Khalifa”   (38:26) we get 40 + 29 + 38 + 38 + 26 = 171 = 19×9.
  • The sum of all sura and verse numbers where all “Rashada” and all “Khalifa” occur, without discrimination, add up to 1463, 19×77 (See table below).

  • The total of all suras and verses where the root word “Rashada” occurs is 1369, or (19×72) + 1, while the total for all occurrences of “Khalifa” is 94, (19×5)-1. The fact that “Rashada” is up by one and “Khalifa” is down by one pins down the name as “Rashad Khalifa,” and not any “Rashad” or any “Khalifa.”  
  • The gematrical value of “Rashad” is 505 and the value of “Khalifa” is 725 (Table 7, Appendix 1). If we add the value of “Rashad Khalifa” (1230) to the sura numbers, and the number of verses, from the beginning of the Quran to the first occurrence of “Rashada,” the total is 1425, 19×75.
  • If we add the numbers of all the verses in every sura, i.e., the sum of verse numbers (1 + 2 + 3 + … + n) from the beginning of the Quran to the first occurrence of the root word “Rashada,” the total comes to 17233, 19×907.
  • The Quranic Initials constitute the basic foundation of the Quran’s miracle. These initials occur in suras 2, 3, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 36, 38, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 50, and 68. If we add the sum of these numbers (822) to the value of “Rashad Khalifa” (1230), the total is 2052, 19×108.
  • If we add the numbers of all suras where the root word “Rashada” occurs, plus the number of verses, we get 1368, or 19×72.
  • If we examine the suras and verses from the first occurrence of the root word “Rashada” to the word “Khalifa” in 38:26, we find that the sum of sura numbers and their numbers of verses is 4541, or 19×239.

The Only Religion Approved by God is Islam



  • The Quran specifies three messengers of Islam (Submission):

Abraham delivered all the practices of Islam. The value of his name = 258

Muhammad delivered the Quran. The value of his name = 92

Rashad delivered Islam’s proof of authenticity. The value of his name = 505

Total gematrical value of the 3 names = 855 = 19×45.

The true Judaism, Christianity, and Islam will be consolidated into one religion—complete submission and absolute devotion to God ALONE.

The existing religions, including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are severely corrupted and will simply die out (9:33, 48:28, 61:9).

Why Verse 3:81?

  • If we add the sura numbers plus the number of verses from the beginning of the Quran to Verse 3:81, where the Messenger of the Covenant is prophesied, the total comes to 380, 19×20.
  • The gematrical value of Verse 3:81 is 13148, 19×692. This value is obtained by adding the gematrical values of every letter in the verse.
  • If we look at that portion of Verse 3:81 which refers specifically to the messenger of the Covenant: “A messenger will come to you, confirming what you have,” in Arabic:


we find that the gematrical value of this key phrase is 836, 19×44.



The Quran provides straightforward criteria to distinguish the true messengers of God from the false messengers:

[1] God’s messenger advocates the worship of God ALONE, and the abolition of all forms of idol worship.

[2] God’s messenger never asks for a wage for himself.

[3] God’s messenger is given divine, incontrovertible proof of his messengership. Anyone who claims to be God’s messenger, and does not meet the three minimum criteria listed above is a false claimant.


The most important difference between God’s messenger and a fake messenger is that God’s messenger is supported by God, while the fake messenger is not:

* God’s messenger is supported by God’s invisible soldiers (3:124- 126, 9:26&40, 33:9, 37:171-173, 48:4&7, 74:31).

* God’s messenger is supported by God’s treasury (63:7-8).

* God’s messenger, as well as the believers, are guaranteed victory and dignity, in this world and forever (40:51 & 58:21).

Thus, the truthfulness of God’s messenger invariably prevails, while the falsehood of a fake messenger invariably, sooner or later, is exposed.



As stated in the Quran, 3:81, God’s Messenger of the Covenant was predestined to confirm all the scriptures, which were delivered by all the prophets, and restore them to their original purity.


When the believers are faced with a problem, they develop a number of possible solutions, and this invariably leads to considerable bickering, disunity, and disarray. We learn from 2:151, 3:164, and 21:107 that it is but mercy from God that He sends to us messengers to provide the final solutions to our problems. We learn from 42:51 that God sends His messengers to communicate with us, and to disseminate new information. Hence the strong injunction in 4:65, 80 to accept, without the slightest hesitation, the teachings delivered to us through God’s messengers. The following is a list of the principal duties of God’s Messenger of the Covenant:

The following is a list of the principal duties of God’s Messenger of the Covenant:

  1. Unveil and proclaim the Quran’s mathematical miracle.
  2. Expose and remove the two false verses 9:128-129 from the Quran.
  3. Explain the purpose of our lives; why we are here.
  4. Proclaim one religion for all the people, and point out and purge away all the corruptions afflicting Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
  5. Unveil the end of the world.
  6. Proclaim that those who die before the age of 40 go to Heaven
  7. Explain the Quran’s delivery to, then through Muhammad.
  8. Explain why most believers in God do not make it to Heaven.
  9. Proclaim that God never ordered Abraham to kill his son.
  10. Proclaim the secret of perfect happiness.
  11. Establish a criminal justice system.
