What is a numeral ?
When the Quran was revealed, 14 centuries ago, the numbers known today did not exist. A universal system was used where the letters of the Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek alphabets were used as numerals. The number assigned to each letter is its "Gematrical Value." The numerical values of the Arabic alphabet are shown in table below.

What is a numeral ?

Many of my friends and non-friends asked me to explain

The modern system of numeration (designation by the

What Is Numerology?
Webster's dictionary defines numerology as the study of the occult (hidden) significance of numbers and letters. It is interesting to see that the ignorant Muslims and the misguided ones who do not want to accept the mathematical miracle of the Quran call the miracle of the Quran numerology and call Dr. Khalifa a numerologist. Not only did they fail to understand the difference between numerology and mathematics but they also failed to appreciate what God called "One of the great miracles " 74:35. The gematrical values of the alphabets are not occult or hidden values but well known since the introduction of the languages and were born out of need not out of the desire to predict a future event or an occult meaning. The miracle of the Quran is based on pure mathematical factors not on the occult significance of the numbers or letters in the Quran. There is no claim of any occult significance of any number or letters by Dr. Khalifa or by the Author of the Quran (God Almighty). The significance of number 19 is explained by God Almighty in 74:31 in details not hidden or occult. The miracle of the Quran is a phenomenal mathematical relationship of the placement of the chapters, the verses, the words of the Quran, and / or the numbers used in the Quran. NOTHING OCCULT in it and no claim of any special significance more than what God Almighty detailed in 74:31. For example the Quran has 114 chapters (19X6), The first verse 1:1 known as "Basmalla" consists of 19 letters. The total number of verses in the Quran is 6346, or 19X334. The Basmalla occurs in the Quran 114 times (19X6), despite its conspicuous absence from Sura 9. The famous first revelation (96:1-5) consists of 19 words. This 19-worded first revelation consists of 76 letters, & 76=19X4. The word God (ALLAH) occurs throughout the Quran in its 114 Suras 2698 times and 2698= 19X142. The number of verses where the word God occurs add up to 118123 also a multiple of 19, = 19X6217 and so on for hundreds of similar mathematical findings, all consistent with God's swearing in 74:30, "Over it is 19". As any sincere person can see , there is NO OCCULT significance or HIDDEN values but straight forward mathematics from the Quran. Those who call it numerology are showing their ignorance and their deliberate attempt to cover up their inability to appreciate, see or understand the miracle. It takes divine intervention to block someone from seeing God's miracle. God promised to show His miracles ONLY to the sincere believers, those who attained certainty, 2:118 and 83:18-22.
