THE MESSENGER SHALL SERVE AS A WITNESS AMONG YOU.
AND YOU SHALL SERVE AS WITNESSES AMONG THE PEOPLE.

 

 

 

A messenger of God confirms the existing scriptures (3:81). He preaches and warns in accordance with God's teachings (5:19); and, his only duty is to deliver the message (5:99). By God's leave and with His support, a messenger becomes equipped with the eye of certainty. He becomes able to distinguish the truth from the falsehood. He becomes a witness. Similarly, the sincere believers become witnesses. Almighty God blesses them with the gift of certainty. They become able to see the truth; they live the truth and enjoy it.  They achieve true happiness in their lives.

 

Those who receive the truth and witness it, by God's leave, are the successful ones.

 

[12:108] Say, 'This is my path: I invite to God, on the basis of a clear proof, and so do those who follow me. God be glorified. I am not an idol worshiper."

 

The "path," in here is clearly the path shown by the Messenger of the Covenant. If we add (12108), representing the above verse, with the gematrical value of the name Rashad Khalifa (505,725), we get:

 

12108 + 505 + 725 = 13338 = 19 x 702

 

If we place (12108), representing the verse, and the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa (505,725), side by side, we get:

 

12108,505,725 = 19 x 637289775

GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

[3:193, 194]  "Our Lord, we have heard a caller calling to faith and proclaiming: `You shall believe in your Lord,' and we have believed. Our Lord, forgive us our transgressions, remit our sins, and let us die as righteous believers. "Our Lord, shower us with the blessings you promised us through Your messengers, and do not forsake us on the Day of Resurrection. You never break a promise."

 

Dear brothers and sisters, let us all repent and ask Almighty God for forgiveness. We have been called to faith. Please, let us not become deaf after we have heard the message; and, let us not go blind after we have witnessed the truth. We human beings, by our very nature, are weak. We step out of the boundaries. We transgress God's laws. The Knower of All secrets and declarations is fully aware of our weaknesses. This is why He reminds us throughout the Quran that He is ‘Forgiving, Most Merciful.’ Brothers and sisters, we have been blessed with an awesome thing that no generation before us has ever been blessed with. We have the proven words and the authorized translation of the Quran. We have the clear revelations without any ambiguity. Let us pray to Almighty God that it be in accordance with His will that we do not disbelieve after we have believed. Greater miracles bring greater responsibility. We are witnessing One of the Great Miracles. The 19-based mathematical miracle of the Quran is far beyond human capability and far beyond anything that human beings have ever witnessed. It is a solid proof and, actually, a physical evidence proving the very existence of an Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent Creator.

 

Physical Evidence

 [2:55] Recall that you said. 'O Moses, we will not believe unless we see God, physically. "Consequently, the lightning struck you, as you looked.

The word "God" in this verse is the 19th occurrence, and this is the verse where the people demanded "physical evidence." All the praises are due to Almighty God. We also see that the sura number and the verse number add up to be 57 which is (19 x 3). The same statement is repeated in

 

[4:153] 'The people of the scripture challenge you to bring down to them a book from the sky! They have asked Moses for more than that, saying, "Show us God, physically. " Consequently, the lightning struck them. as a consequence of their audacity.  ..."

 

We cannot physically endure the presence of the Almighty for God's awesome energy is far beyond our comprehension. But, the book is brought down to us carrying His signature, providing the physical evidence. If we add the two sura verse numbers where the people demanded "physical evidence," we get:

 

2,55 + 4,153 = 4408 = 19 x 232

GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

The word "Quran," in the Quran, when it refers to "this Quran," with its other two grammatical forms, "Quranun and Quranahu," occurs in 66 verses. 66 is the gematrical value of the word "GOD" in Arabic. Allahu Akbar! The sum of the sura numbers containing the 66 occurrences is 1356. The sum of the verse numbers is 3052. If we add the above two numbers, we get:

 

1356 + 3052 = 4408 = 19 x 232

ALLAHU AKBAR

 

To verify, please refer to Appendix 1, Table 21, third edition of the Authorized English Version of the Quran, translated from the Original by Dr. Rashad Khalifa.

 

Glory be to God. This number 4408 represents a great miracle. It makes the believers absolutely certain that the Quran, indeed, is the "physical evidence." The Quran is the book that carries the signature of Almighty God. To receive "the book," the final prophet was summoned to the highest universe (53:7). In sura 53, verses 8 and 9, God says, "He drew nearer by moving down. Until, He became as close as possible." These verses tell us that even in the other dimension, it is not possible to get closer to God beyond a certain limit. The Quran providing the "physical evidence" was revealed to the prophet (53:10). Almighty God says, "He saw him in another descent" This statement occurs in 53:13. If we place the sura number, the verse number, and the gematrical value of the name Muhammad, 92, side by side. We get:

 

53,13,92 = 19 x 19 x 1472
GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

The Quran, the book was sent down through Prophet Muhammad. The proof, the 19-based mathematical miracle of the Quran was revealed through the Messenger of the Covenant. Rashad Khalifa was summoned to the highest universe.

 

[81:23] "He saw him at the high horizon."

 

If we add 8123, representing the above verse; 1971, the year the covenant of the prophets was fulfilled; and, (505,725), the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa, We get:

 

8123 + 1971 + 505 + 725 = 11324 = 19 x 596

 

If we place (8123), representing the verse, and (200,300,1,4, 600,30,10,80,5), the gematrical value of the individual letters of the name Rashad Khalifa, side by side, we get:

 

8123, 200,300,1,4, 600,30,10,80,5 = 19 x 427536857902421211095

GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

Brothers and sisters do we realize what an awesome thing we have been blessed with? Do we appreciate the gift of the Quran, the physical evidence?  Or, are we turning on our heels, becoming unappreciative and heedless of the message? How many times do we need to read the Quran to realize that those who corrupted the religion were not those who followed the messengers? The corruptors were those who became arrogant and proud and they followed their own opinion. God's religion has always been the same religion. God's messengers delivered one and the same message, advocating the worship of God Alone. The reason for all the corruptions in the religious circles that has lead to so much mischief and bloodshed, ironically in the name of God, is not because of the messengers. It is because of those who did not follow the messengers and became heedless of the message. If we have been so badly torn apart and divided on this earth, it is not because of those who followed the messengers. It is because of those who became arrogant and proud; and, they followed their own personal opinion.

 

Almighty God is far beyond needing anyone or anything; for. He is the Creator of all things. To have anything done He can simply command, "Be," and it is! But, it is God's system that He allows His creation to participate and perform duties. He allows them to earn credit with Him.  Those who are truthful happily obey the command of their Lord and never become arrogant and proud.

 

Satan became arrogant and proud. To perform some duties, Almighty God had given Satan some powers. But, he became impressed with himself. He thought that those powers were really his. He developed wrong ideas in his head. He failed his Lord and fell from grace. Satan's arrogance was the cause of his debasement and damnation. Some, among God's creation, including us human beings, due to ignorance failed to uphold God's absolute authority.  We were impressed with Satan's performance and thought of him as a source of some power and authority beside God. We became Satan's constituencies. Out of ignorance, we failed to realize that all the powers belong to God Alone. Out of ignorance, we failed to realize that God was doing everything. Satan was simply an instrument; and, he of himself did not have any power. We participated in a rebellious act against our Creator (38:69). We failed our Lord and fell from grace. When the angels wondered why Almighty God is placing us, "the rebels," on earth. He said. 'I know what you do not know.' 2:30 Our life on this earth is the only chance we have got to redeem ourselves. Brothers and sisters let us denounce the Devil and pray to Almighty God that we do not fail this time. Let us pray to Almighty God that He strengthens our souls and helps us kill our egos.

 

Ego is our worst enemy and it is nourished by the source of all the evils, Satan. It is tragic that we human beings can develop big heads so quickly. "We" becomes "I;" and, "I" gets as big as a mountain. It is our weakness that allows Satan to work on us. He is the one who polishes our egos and makes us arrogant and proud. Consistently, those who corrupted the religion were those who developed big egos. Following the messengers, following the guidance from God, was not good enough for them. They did not want to just follow; they wanted to lead. But, the truth comes from God; and, it comes through His messengers. What can come after the truth, but falsehood?

 

We are a generation that has witnessed and, through the Quran, can witness that the messenger was the truth. We are a generation that has witnessed and, through the Quran, can witness the solid proof, the physical evidence. We should be and can be God willing, among the best creatures (98:7). But, also we can fall in the category of the worst (98:6). We need God to help us to distinguish the truth from the falsehood.

 

[9:33, 61:9] He has sent His messenger with the guidance and the true religion, and will make it dominate all religions, in spite of the idol worshipers.

 

All the praises are due to Almighty God, Ihsan Ramadan had made fantastic discoveries proving that the above two verses refer to the Messenger of the Covenant. (Special Bonus Issue of SUBMITTERS PERSPECTIVE, Jan. 1990, [No.62]) The true religion of "Submission" shall prevail over all other religions, 'in spite of the idol worshipers." To become arrogant and proud is the worst form of idol worship.

 

[45:23] Have you noted the one whose god is his ego? Consequently, God sends him astray, despite his knowledge, seals his hearing and his mind, and places a veil on his eyes. Who then can guide him, after such a decision by God? Would you not take heed?

 

God Alone is the source of guidance; and He sends guidance through His messengers. But, in the process, He allows His creation to participate and perform duties. He allows His creation to earn credit with Him. Gabriel and many other angels perform duties and provide support for God's messengers. God also allows some of the human beings to participate and perform duties. We learn from the Quran that God's messengers had always, no matter how small, a group of people around them. In accordance with God's will, some fortunate souls were blessed to be contemporaries with the messengers. They were the ones who embraced the message and supported the messengers. But, it is God's system; a system that never changes. He also allows some human devils to be contemporaries with the messengers (6:112, 22:52). They are the ones who spread poison and doubt. They are the ones who become arrogant and proud.

 

Let's bring it home. Perhaps, God willing, we can learn from the Quran and not duplicate our previous mistake. We must remember that Satan's arrogance and our ignorance was the reason for our downfall. The Merciful God has given us another chance. We must be very appreciative for these precious moments and God willing, not blow it. To guide us Almighty God, if He so willed, could send a book from the sky, a book with all the mathematical proofs translated in all the languages of the earth. This is easy for God to do. To have anything done, He simply commands, "Be," and it is! If anyone doubts God's Omnipotence, then, he or she is destined for hell! To guide us Almighty God, if He so willed, could send a messenger with the complete message in his hand ready to be delivered and could provide His messenger with the technology to spread the message across the planet all at once. This is easy for God to do. To have anything done, He simply commands, "Be," and it is! If anyone doubts God's Omnipotence, then, he or she is destined for hell! But, it is God's system that He sends messengers. His system is such that His message is delivered over a period of time. It took Prophet Muhammad twenty-three years to deliver the Quran. This essence of gradual deliverance of the message and human participation makes the work done through the messenger seem rather ordinary. This is why the insincere can not understand and appreciate God's handy work.

 

[17.94,95] What prevented the people from believing when the guidance came to them, is their saying, 'Did God send a human being as a messenger?" Say, "If the earth was inhabited by angels, we would have sent down to them from the sky an angel messenger."

God Is My Witness

 

[17:96] Say, "GOD suffices as a witness between me and you. He is fully Cognizant of His worshipers, Seer."

 

In this verse, the Messenger of the Covenant is commanded to call on Almighty God as his witness. Adding 1796, representing the above verse; 1971, the year of the fulfillment of the covenant; and, (505,725), the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa, we get:

 

1796 + 1971 + 505 + 725 = 4997 = 19 x 263

 

If we place 1796 and 200,300,1,4, 600,30,10,80,5, the gematrical value of the individual letters of the name Rashad Khalifa, side by side, we get:

 

1796, 200,300,1,4, 600,30,10,80,5

19 x 94536857902421211095

 

This command, 'Say, 'God Suffices as a witness between me and you," has also occurred in 29:52. But, this refers to Prophet Muhammad who calls Almighty God as his witness. If we place 2952 and (40,8,40,4), the gematrical value of the individual letters of the name Muhammad, side by side, we get:

 

2952,408404 = 19 x 155389916

GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

Brothers and sisters who have been participants in God's project, beware of Satan and his tricks. You are his number one target. He is your most ardent enemy. When the Messenger of the Covenant was in your midst, many of you made many awesome Quranic discoveries. But remember, it was not you who was doing it. God was doing everything. But, He was allowing you to earn credit with Him (8:17). Satan wants you to think that you were doing it. He wants you to become arrogant and proud. Brothers and sisters God does not need us. The moment we think of ourselves as if we are somebody, that would be the beginning of our downfall. God also allows His messengers to make mistakes. This is to help us realize just how human they are. Almighty God corrects the mistakes of His messengers during their earthly lifetime. In many instances, He uses the human participants as instruments to correct the errors. God's messengers, being guided by the Almighty, are not arrogant. They see the mistakes; and, by God's leave, they correct them. The human participation in this particular process turns out to be a very heavy test for those who are involved. The sincere believers, who have truly understood the message, know that God is doing everything. But, those with disease in their hearts become impressed with themselves. They follow the footsteps of Satan; they become arrogant and proud. They do not realize when they were correcting the mistake or mistakes of the messenger, it was not them who was doing it, God was correcting the mistakes; but, He was using them as instruments and testing their arrogance at the same time. These human devils are badly entrapped in their egos. They cannot appreciate how perfect God's system is. They cannot believe that the complete and correct message has already been delivered through God's messenger. They spread poison and doubt. They constantly come up with revelations of their own, Satanic revelations. Then there are some ignorant ones who are impressed with these human devils. They compromise the work done through God's messenger. They compromise the guidance coming to them from their Creator.

 

All the praises are due to Almighty God. This is an awesome time for humanity. We have been blessed with so much. Think about the number of people who can read and write these days. Think about the number of ways that information can be documented and stored. And, think about the number of ways that "the message" can be spread and propagated. It is a blessing that the Almighty sent a messenger at this time. A messenger that delivered proven words and clear revelations, advocating the worship of God Alone without idolization of anything or anyone beside Him. God's work through His Messenger of the Covenant is well documented. It does not leave room for any guesswork or conjecture. Those who are guided by Almighty God appreciate the blessings bestowed upon them. They embrace the message. They hear and obey the commands of their Lord. The commands that are reflected in clear revelations of the Quran. A scripture that carries the signature of the Almighty Creator, providing irrefutable "physical evidence."

 

[3:164] God has blessed the believers by raising in their midst a messenger from among them, to recite for them His revelations, and to purify them, and to teach them the scripture and wisdom. Before this. they had gone totally astray.

 

Adding 3164, representing the above verse; 1971, the year the covenant of the prophets was fulfilled; and (505, 725), the gematrical value of Rashad Khalifa, we get:

 

3164 + 1971 + 505 + 725 = 6365 = 19 x 335

 

If we place (3164), representing the verse, and (200,300,1,4, 600,30,10,80,5), the gematrical value of the individual letters of the name Rashad Khalifa, side by side, we get:

 

3164, 200,300,1,4, 600,30,10,80,5
19 x 166536857902421211095

GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

A letter from the editor:

All the praises are due to Almighty God. The only objective of this monthly News Letter is, God willing, to spread the truth. The truth that has come to us in the form of a mathematically coded message from our Creator. Our position is uncompromising.

 

Some of the believers in Fremont, California who first used the name "Universal Unity" may have a softer approach in confronting falsehood. Glory be to God. These believers in California were the ones who were blessed by God to publish the third edition of the "Authorized English Version" of the Quran; an authorized translation done through Dr. Rashad Khalifa, Messenger of the Covenant. Although all true believers, all over the world, are members of one family. But, this News Letter wishes to make it clear that as far as organization is concerned, it has no connection with the brothers and sisters in Fermont, California. All the praises are due to Almighty God. We take full responsibility for the published materials in this newsletter.
