Significance of Number 19 in Quran

The significance of Number 19 in Quran is like the  divine stamp that appears throughout the universe in much the same manner as the creator’s signatures of Michelangelo and Picasso identify their works. Apparently Galileo was right when he made his famous statement : “Mathematics is the language with which God created the universe.”

 Quran is for Moral Guidance of Mankind

Holy Qur’an is the religious text of Islam, and Muslims hold that the Qur’an is the verbal divine guidance and moral direction for mankind, and that they consider the original Arabic verbal text to be the final revelation of Allah, the Final Testament. Muslims around the world rely on the Quran for guidance, and believe that the Quran is God’s unfiltered message, teaching them how to lead a good life and become a better, more moral people.

In one of the  surah Allah promises none can change His book: Quran (18:27) states:-

“And recite what has been revealed to you of the Book of your Lord, there is none who can alter His words; and you shall not find any refuge besides Him.”

 There are three ways in which the Quran has been protected from changes:

It was written down immediately

It was memorized in its entirety

It uses checksums to generate mathematical anomalies which can be used to detect changes in the Quran.

 The Quran is characterized by a unique phenomenon never found in any human authored book. Every element of the Quran is mathematically composed — the suras, the verses, the words, the number of certain letters, the number of words from the same root, the number and variety of divine names, the unique spelling of certain words, the absence or deliberate alteration of certain letters within certain words, and many other elements of the Quran besides its content. There are two major facets of the Quran’s mathematical system: (1) The mathematical literary composition, and (2) The mathematical structure involving the numbers of suras and verses. Because of this comprehensive mathematical coding, the slightest distortion of the Quran’s text or physical arrangement is immediately exposed.

 If you search the entire quran for the number nineteen written out in Arabic “tisa-ashr”, you will find it in one verse: Quran (74:31):- “On it (are) nineteen.” The Quran itself explains the significance of the number 19 in the immediately following verse: Quran (74:32):-

 And We have made the guardians of the Fire to be Angels; and We did not make their number except as a test for those who have rejected, so that those who were given the Scripture would understand, and those who have faith would be increased in faith, and so that those who have been given the Scripture and the believers do not have doubt, and so that those who have a sickness in their hearts and the rejecters would Say: “What did God mean with an example such as this?” ( How will only 19 angels control a population in hell, of many many generations ? ) . It is such that God misguides whom He wishes, and He guides whom He wishes. And none know your Lord’s soldiers except Him. And it is but a reminder for mankind.”

With the “19” of 74:25-35 in mind,  let us look at a few of the Miracle’s Simple Facts (one-millionth of the Miracle).

No extraordinary importance has been given to number 19 in Qur’an, as far as the Message of Qur’an and the guidance therein is concerned. What you are about to read in this article is actually about a miraculous ‘19-based’ mathematical arrangement through which the letters, words, verses and the Surahs of holy Qur’an are related together. The number 19, in the way it is written, consists of the smallest one-digit number which is 1 and the largest one-digit number which is 9. So the number 19 is the smallest number that represents all numbers. Number 19 is one of the Prime Numbers which means it can only be divided, without creating fractions, by number 1 and by itself. 

This number 19 is very significant number  for holy Quran. Many important features of the holy Quran are related to number 19. For example:-

Ø  The magical word, to begin all Surah and all good action , is below , which consists of 19 letters.


Bismillah, Ar-Rehman, Ar-Rahim


 Ø  The number of letters in  M-19-4  (In the name of Allah the most Compassionate, most Merciful) which appears in the beginning of most chapters of the Quran is 19.

    a.  اسْمِ  (Isim) is repeated 19 times in Quran

    b.   اللَّهِ  (Allah) is repeated 2698 ( = 19 x 142) times in the Quran.

    c. رَّحْمَنِ  (Rahman) is repeated 57 ( = 19 x 3) times in the Quran.

    d.  رَّحِيم  (Rahim) is repeated 114 ( = 19 x 6) times in the Quran.

So, the root words that make up  are repeated: 19 + 2698 + 57 + 114 = 2888 times in the Quran. It is worth noting that 2888 is equal to 19 x 152.
