October 1998 [No. 47]

 

You shall recite what is revealed to you of your Lord's scripture. Nothing shall abrogate His words,

And you shall not find any other source beside it.

18:27

 

 

The above verse is pointing at the Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but the Quran. The Arabic Quran (The Message) was sent done through Prophet Muhammad. Let us, God willing, witness an awesome mathematical miracle. If we add 1827 representing the above sura and verse number to 92, the gematrical value of the name "Muhammad," we get:

19,19

This verse is made of fifty-three Arabic letters (Read Sura 53, verses 1-18.). The gematrical value of these letters is: (6, 1, 400, 30, 40, 1, 1, 6, 8, 10, 1, 30, 10, 20, 40, 50, 20, 400, 1, 2, 200, 2, 20, 30, 1, 40, 2, 4, 30, 30, 20, 30, 40, 400, 5, 6, 30, 50, 400, 3, 4, 40, 50, 4, 6, 50, 5, 40, 30, 400, 8, 4, 1). Thus, the gematrical value of the entire verse is 3062. Glory is to God; if we add this number to 92, the gematrical value of the name "Muhammad," we get a number that again is a multiple of nineteen.

3062 + 92 = 3154 = 19 x 166

If the Muhammadans understood the correct meaning of this verse, would they adhere to the books of the Hadith and Sunna? This is how Yusuf Ali translates this verse: "And recite what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, and none wilt thou find as a refuge other than Him." The translator agrees that the verse is pointing at a single book and not books. But he cannot overcome his prejudice for the books of the Hadith and Sunna. Thus, he cannot translate the rest of the verse correctly. His mind gets focused only on the Arabic words of the Quran. He agrees that the Arabic words are from God and are preserved by Him (15:9). But he cannot bring it upon himself to understand that no other words can ever abrogate God's words. No other religious teachings and commands can ever abrogate God's teachings and commands.

The Quran that was sent down through Prophet Muhammad became the message-messenger, when its awesome mathematical miracle was revealed through the Messenger of the Covenant. In accordance with God's will, Rashad Khalifa (G.V. 1230), on 1, 5, 1974, unveiled the secret of the Quran. The revelation of the "Nineteen Mathematical Code" marked the emergence of the 666. The Quran became a living messenger. To verify, let us add the above numbers:

1230 + 1 + 5 + 1974 + 666 = 3876 = 19 x 204


GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

The Arabic Quran together with its Authorized Translation constitutes the complete message from God, our Creator. This Quran contains the proof and the clear revelations. It is this Quran that shall, God willing, expose the corrupted religionists and shall bring about the universal unity among the sincere hearted. It is this Quran, the "666," that has frightened the corrupted Church of Trinity.

The Quran, the 666, mathematically confirms that Sura 18, verse 27, points at the Arabic Quran together with its Authorized Translation. The Arabic Quran was sent down through Muhammad (G.V. 92). Its Authorized Translation came through Rashad Khalifa (G.V. 1230). This Quran reflects God's clear messages to the whole world. To verify, let us add the above five numbers:

666 + 18 + 27 + 92 + 1230 = 2033 = 19 x 107

Let us place the above numbers side by side:

666,18,27,92,1230 = 19 x 350622522170

Glory is to God; these mathematical proofs are irrefutable. They are easy to understand, but impossible to imitate.

In the above proof, if we switch the sura and the verse number (18:27), with the gematrical value of the verse, we obtain a number that again is a multiple of nineteen.

666,3062,92,1230 = 19 x 350687522170


GOD BE GLORIFIED

This Quran, "The 666," in 18:27 with the gematrical value of 3062, tells us that it is the complete message from God. It is the only source of religious guidance, and nothing shall abrogate its words. To verify, let us place the above numbers side by side:

666,1827,3062  = 19 x 3506224898

It is God's will that I witness these mathematical proofs and report them to the believers. If we add (896,92), the gematrical value of Keikhosrow Emami, to 1827 for the sura and the verse number, 3062, the gematrical value of the verse, and 666, we get:

89692 + 1827 + 3062 + 666 = 95247 = 19 x 5013

There is no other god beside God!

 

The vast majority of the Muslims are led to believe in information contrary to that of the teachings of the Quran.

They are led to believe that the Quran is difficult to learn. God says that He has made it easy (54:17,22,32,40).

They are let to believe that they need teachers who can teach them the Quran. God says that He is the teacher of the Quran (55:1, 2; 20:114).

They are led to believe that they must physically wash up before touching the Quran. God says that sincerity is the only requirement before one can grasp the true meaning of the Quranic verses (56:79).

They are led to believe that the Quran must be read in Arabic. God says that it has to be translated so that the message can be understood and believed (26:198,199).

They are led to believe that the Quran helps the dead. God says that it is for those who are alive (36:70).

They are led to believe that the Quran is not enough; thus, other sources such as the Hadith and the Sunna are needed. God says that the Quran is complete and fully detailed; nothing is left out of it (6:19,38,114,115; 12:111; 17:41,89; 18:54; 30:58; 39:27; 18:109; 1:27).

Abandoning the Quran in favor of man-made innovations, and in effect worshiping other gods beside God, has torn the Muslim-world into pieces. God's command in the Quran calls for the unity of the believers. Believers must not break their religion into sects (3:105; 6:159).

[30:31] “You shall submit to Him, reverence Him, observe the Contact Prayers, and – whatever you do -- do not ever fall into idol worship.

[30:32] Like those who divided their religion into sects; each party rejoicing with what they have.”

Obviously those who profess sectarianism such as the Shi'i, Sunni, etc., do not uphold the Quran alone. They uphold other teachings beside it,  teachings that are not authorized by God (42:21). As it was the case with their previous counterparts,

[9:31] “They have set up their religious leaders and scholars as lords, instead of God.”

Therefore, they are not submitters (Muslim) to God alone; they are idol worshipers (Mushrik).

 

WHAT IS YOUR EXCUSE?

Since the Muhammadans uphold other sources of religious teachings beside the Quran, they are blocked out of it (17:46). They are denied the gift of the purified Quran that contains the proven words and the clear revelations. Thus, they cannot understand the message that is delivered through 18:27. To those who believed, witnessed that the Messenger of the Covenant was truth, and solid proofs were given to them (3:86), what is your excuse? What is your excuse for not believing that the Quran is enough?

To Abdullah Arik, the gentleman in charge of the ICS, the second Masjid Tucson, in Tucson Arizona, and his followers, what is it that you do not understand about the message conveyed in 18:27?

[18:27] “You shall recite what is revealed to you of your Lord's scripture. Nothing shall abrogate His words, and you shall not find any other source beside it.”

 

What is your excuse for upholding additional sources beside this Quran? Woe to those who received the messenger but did not get the message, the message that is the Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but the Quran.

 

[6:114] “Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He has revealed to you this book fully detailed? Those who received the scripture recognize that is has been revealed from your Lord, truthfully. You shall not harbor any doubt.

[6:115] The word of your Lord is complete, in truth and justice. Nothing shall abrogate His words. He is the Hearer, the Omniscient. '

The statementNothing shall abrogate His words.” "La Mo'baddela Le'kalemateh," is occurred in the Quran twice, 6:115 and 18:27. The gematrical value of this statement is 632. If we add this number to the sura and the verse numbers, we get:

6 + 115 + 18 + 27 + 632 = 798 = 19 x 42

Let us this time, add 6115 and 1827 together, the numbers that represent the two occurrences of the above statement in the Quran.

6115 + 1827 = 7942 = 19 x 19 x 22

Nothing shall abrogate His words!

[8:20] “O you who believe, obey God and His messenger, and do not disregard him while you hear.”

Prophet Muhammad said, "Do not read after me, but from this Quran." Likewise, Rashad Khalifa pointed out that the Quran is all that is needed for our salvation.

Appendix 18, Authorized English Version of the Quran: "The true believers uphold the Quran, the whole Quran, and nothing but the Quran."

Footnote 6:19: “This verse proclaims the Quran as the only source of religious guidance. Those who uphold additional sources are defined as idolaters.”

Footnote 6:38: “All information relevant to our eternal life of the Hereafter is contained in the Quran. The true believers accept, without hesitation, God's assertion: We did not leave anything out of this book.”

Footnote 6:113-115: “Upholding any source beside the Quran reflects disbelief in the Quran.”

[18:21] “(O you who believe), do not be like those who say. 'We hear,' when they do not hear.”

All the praises are due to Almighty God. It is plain and simple; those who uphold any other source of religious guidance beside the Quran are not true believers. They disbelieve in the Quran, thus they are idol worshipers. The community of the so-called "Submitters" in Tucson, Arizona has adopted religious practices contrary to that of the teachings of the Quran.

1. God's command in the Quran concerning the direction of the Qiblah is straightforward:

[2:144] “...Henceforth, you shall turn your face (during Salat) towards the Sacred Masjid. Wherever you may be, all of you shall turn your faces towards it. ...”

[2:149] “Wherever you go, you shall turn your face (during Salat) towards the Sacred Masjid. This is the truth from your Lord. God is never unaware of anything you all do.”

[2:150] “Wherever you go, you shall turn your face (during Salat) towards the Sacred Masjid; wherever you might be, you shall turn your faces (during Salat) towards it. ...”

Abdullah Arik and his associates believe that in group-prayers, it is permissible to compromise the direction of the Qiblah in favor of the dimensions of the room in which the prayer is performed. They say that it is more convenient to conform to the configuration of the building. From what source do these people get their information? Are they upholding another source for their religious guidance beside the Quran? Are they worshiping a new god beside God? Do these people find any ambiguity in God's command? Is it their wish to follow the example of the previous generations (2:93) and say, "We hear, but we disobey?"

These people think that they are obeying God and His messenger. God's command is in the Quran. But the way these people practice is not in compliance with the command. Therefore, they are not obeying God. They are not obeying the messenger either; for, at this time, the only living messenger is the Quran. When they hear something different with that which was said by Rashad Khalifa, even if the Quran supports it, they get offended. At the same time, incredibly, they totally ignore the warnings issued by God's messenger in regard to upholding additional sources beside the Quran. These people do not need to worry about the messenger. They better worry about "their own necks." What God's messengers do during their lifetime is in accordance with God's will and there are divine purposes behind them. For one thing, the believers must be tested when the messengers live amongst them, and they must be tested when the messengers are dead and gone.

2. In the Authorized English Version of the Quran, in Sura 17, in the middle of the verse 110, we see a subtitle:  "Tone of the Contact Prayers (Salat)." The translation of the rest of the verse goes as follows: “You shall not utter your Contact Prayers (Salat) too loudly, nor secretly; use a moderate tone.” This is God's command that is written in an honorable scripture by the hands of His messenger.

 

[80:13] “In honorable scriptures.

[80:14] “Exalted and pure.

[80:15] (written) by the hands of messengers.”

 

 The above three verses refer to the Arabic Quran written by Muhammad's hand (G.V. 92) and its Authorized Translation written by the hands of Rashad Khalifa (G.V. 1230). To witness an awesome signature, let us add the above six numbers:

80 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 92 + 1230 = 1444 = 19 x 19 x 4


GOD BE GLORIFIED

Abdullah Arik and his associates do not utter their Contact Prayers as commanded by the Almighty, written in the Quran by the hands of His messengers. They utter the Shahaadah and also the words of glorification that are spoken in the bowing and the prostration position secretly. If we ask them, why do you utter these words secretly? Most of them would say, "We don't do it this way when we pray alone. We do this when we are in a group prayer." Then, the question is, why does the person who leads your group prayer utters these words secretly? They thus have no choice but to admit that their reasons come from other sources beside the Quran. And this, as pointed out by the Messenger of the Covenant in the Authorized Translation of the Quran, is an act of idol worship.

3. Those who compromise the direction of the Qiblah and utter part of their Salat secretly, will never be able to understand why the statement "Sami'Allahu liman hamidah" does not belong with the Salat. In Sura 17, at the end of the last verse, verse 111, we read the command: “Magnify Him constantly.” The placement of this command in Sura 17, verse 111, is deliberate. In the 17 units of the daily Contact Prayers, 111 times we go through motions and change our positions. The Quran is telling us that in the 17 units that we perform daily, we must 111 times magnify our Lord. Glory is to God; ample solid mathematical proofs have confirmed that the ultimate words of magnification are “Allahu Akbar.”

Abdullah Arik and his associates in their daily Contact Prayers 94 times utter "Allahu Akbar." While going through the motion to stand up from the bowing position, they say, "Sami' Allahu liman hamidah," "God hears those who praise Him." Does God need to be reminded that He should hear those who praise Him? Specially, when the believers are in contact with Him? Instead of uttering a statement which is redundant and out of place in the Contact Prayers, why can't these people magnify God the 111 times that He has specified for them in the Quran? What other sources of religious guidance beside the Quran do they uphold?

4. Who is in charge?

[4:55] “O you who believe, you shall obey God, and you shall obey the messenger, and those in charge among you. If you dispute in any matter, you shall refer it to God and the messenger, if you do believe in God and the Last Day. This is better for you, and provides you with the best solution.”

The phrase "And those in charge among you," in the above verse, refers to the selected individuals who are commissioned to perform specific tasks. Obviously disobeying such individuals creates chaos in the community. The people in charge, like the rest of the believers, follow God's laws in the Quran. They themselves are not the source of law. To resolve any matter that may fall in the area of their responsibilities, they refer it to God and His messenger. In the absence of a human messenger, they refer to the Quran.

In the 13th annual conference of the International Community of Submitters held this year (September 4-6) in Seattle, Washington, Abdullah Arik claimed that he is in charge. In the second day of the conference, at noon, one of the believers pointed out that the direction in which the group had prayed earlier was wrong. Those in charge of the conference had decided to conform to the dimensions of the room rather than obeying God's command in the Quran. Thus, the group made the adjustment and the noon prayer was performed facing the correct Qiblah. Abdullah Arik, in the speech he delivered that afternoon, had the audacity to say that he was disappointed with what the group had done at noon prayer. He said that the believers must obey those in charge. To draw support for his commission, he cited a couple of stories as to how Rashad had dealt with the direction of the Qiblah in different occasions. Now, he and some among his compatriots are becoming new sources of religious guidance beside the Quran. Woe to those who seek self exaltation through their past association with God's messenger! Woe to those who idolize Rashad Khalifa!

What happened to "GOD ALONE," "QURAN ALONE?" How quickly they have forgotten this. We are seeing a new generation of Hadith maker’s right before our eyes. The day will come when a child will ask a simple question: "How do we organize ourselves when we stand to perform a group prayer?" Instead of being referred to the Quran, 2:144,149-150, one would answer: "Some years ago I heard so and so who was an honest man that he had heard Abdullah Arik in one of the occasions when he gave an honest testimony as to how Rashad Khalifa had performed a group prayer." As sad as this is, we must accept it, for this is a Quranic prophecy (25:30), on the Day of Judgment Rashad Khalifa will say, “My Lord, my people have deserted this Quran.”

[39:53] Proclaim: “O My servants who exceeded the limits, never despair of God's mercy. For God forgives all sins. He is the Forgiver, Most Merciful.”
