The Quran’s Common Denominator
[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
[74:31] We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, “What did GOD mean by this allegory?” GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people.
I learned of the below facts today:
The number of words from 74:1 to 74:19 is 57 = 19×3
The number of words from 74:1 to 74:31 is 95 = 19×5
The number of letters from 74:1 to 74:31 right before it says “nineteen” is 361 = 19×19
The number of words in 74:31 is 95 = 19×5
The number of letters in 74:31 is 247 = 19×13
God be glorified. I wanted to verify this so I put together the spreadsheet below incase anyone else would like to verify for themselves.
