O you who believe,

Why do you say what you do not do?

Most abominable in the sight of GOD is that

 You say what you do not do.
 

Quran 61:2-3

 

 

وَكَبِّرْهُ تَكْبِيرًا

Wa Kabberhu Takbiraa

And magnify Him constantly

17:111

 

The translation of the Quran by the Messenger of the Covenant carries God's authorization. One of the reasons is the choice of words at critical points. The wordConstantly” in the above statement is one of such words. The word "Constant" means even, fixed, undeviating, uniform, consistent, regular, steady, continuous, and perpetual. The utterance of "Sami Allahu Liman Hamidah" in place of "Allahu Akbar" in one of the motions in our daily Contact Prayers introduces an unevenness, deviation, inconsistency, discontinuity, irregularity, unsteadiness, and an interruption in the pattern which is decreed by God (17:111). In our daily Contact Prayers, we must magnify God constantly. 5 times a day we stand before the Almighty and by uttering Allahu Akbar, we establish contact with Him. We go through another 106 motions in our daily Salat in order to change our positions. Without any exception while going through these motions, we must utter "Allahu Akbar." Thus, the total number of times that we utter Allahu Akbar in our daily Contact Prayers is 111, (5 + 106).

 

All the praises are due to Almighty God. In the last issue of this newsletter, the believers were introduced to a mathematical pattern in the Quran that starts with number 11. Sura 106 is the last sura that falls in this pattern. This sura is telling us that the Quran must be cherished and the Lord of the shrine, God Almighty, must be worshiped. God willing, we worship our Lord in accordance with the teachings of this Quran. This Quran is telling us that in the 5 daily Contact Prayers, the 17 units, we must 111 times utter Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289). The third verse of this sura says, “They shall worship the Lord of this shrine.” It is obvious that this verse is talking about our daily Contact Prayers. The G. Value of this verse is 1554.  Let us add the above numbers:

 

1554 + 5 + 17 + 111  + 289 = 1976
19 x 104

 

This verse (G.V. 1554) provides us with another solid proof that in our daily Contact Prayers we must 111 times utter Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289). Let us place the above numbers side by side:

 

1554,111,289
19 x ...

 

In the above calculations, instead of the G. Value of the verse, if we use the G. Value of the entire sura (5658), we get similar results:

 

5658 5 + 17 + 111 + 289 = 6080
19 x 320

 

5658,111,289
19 x ...
GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

“We have sent down to you such clear revelations, and only the wicked will reject them.”

[2:99]

(The 106th verse from the beginning of the Quran)

******

The announcement that "Sami'Allahu Liman Hamidah" does not belong with the Salat has created a state of hysteria among some of the believers in Bombay, India. In a "Nineteen multiple frenzy," they have come up with over one hundred calculations that they think are inspired by God. Calculations that presumably prove that 94 is the number of times we must utter Allahu Akbar in our daily Contact Prayers. The calculations that should presumably justify Sami'Allahu Liman Hamidah as a component of our Salat. Those who wish to verify the information may obtain copies either from me or get them from Masjid Tucson. There are some very serious flaws in the assumptions made by these believers and many serious errors committed in their calculations. In the following, God willing, I will go over some of the major issues. I pray to Almighty God that He softens the hearts of these believers so that they can re-examine their calculations without any prejudice and do what is right.

 

No Interpretation
“And magnify Him constantly.”

 

This is a Quranic fact. The above statement in Sura 17 is placed in verse 111. The fact that in the 17 units of the prayers that we perform daily we assume 111 different postures is also undisputable. Glory is to God, if we sincerely seek His guidance, we will be able to put the facts together. Thus, it becomes easy to understand and appreciate as to why in the 17 units of the prayers that we perform daily we must 111 times magnify our Lord. The verse numbers in the Quran are mathematical facts. They carry straightforward meanings with them; 111 means 111. This is simple; it does not require interpretation. Now, if the believers in Bombay say that the 111 that we see is not 111, but in fact it is (17+ 94), then, we should realize that something is wrong. The Quran like the rest of God's creation is flawless. The placement of Wa Kabberhu Takbiraa in verse 111 is not a mistake; it is deliberate; it is a part of God's perfect design. All the calculations in which (17+ 94) is used in place of (111) are utterly wrong and grossly unjustified.

 

Lips Touching

 

In order to utter some of the words, we must let our lips touch. Lips touching is a physical occurrence; we can easily count the number of times our lips touch as we pronounce certain words. For example, when we recite the AI-Fatehah our lips touch 19 times. The believers in Bombay, in order to support their argument concerning their alleged 94 Allahu Akbar and 17 Sami'Allahu Liman Hamidah in the daily Salat, have done an extensive work with the lips touching. But what is so very wrong with their work is that they have compromised two of the major components of the Salat, the bowing and the prostration. For if they include the number of times our lips touch when we utter Sob'haana Rabbial A'alaa (2) and Sob'haana Rabbial Azeem (3), they end up with no proof to support their argument. They have conveniently decided that the words that we utter to glorify our Lord in the daily Contact Prayers are not as important as the utterance of Sami'Allahu Liman Hamidah. They argue that we don't have to glorify God in Arabic; we can say the words in other languages. Do our lips touch if we say the words of glorification in other languages? We know that if we say the words in English, "You be glorified our Lord, the Most High," our lips touch twice. Should we not count the number of times our lips touch regardless of the spoken language? Or, can we be selective and count the lips touching wherever or however we wish so long as we get multiples of nineteen? What the believers in Bombay have done is utterly wrong; compromising two of the major components of the Salat is a gross injustice. Thus, there is no validity whatsoever in any of their calculations that involves lips touching.

 

[22:77] “O you who believe, you shall bow, prostrate, worship your Lord, and work righteousness, that you may succeed.”

 

[53:62] “You shall fall prostrate before God, and worship.”

 

As an integral part of our worship practices, prostration is so important that the Almighty has named a sura after it. Sura Prostration, No. 32, has 30 verses. This sura provides us with mathematical proof that in our daily Contact Prayers we must prostrate 34 times, and while in prostration, we must say, "Sob'haana Rabbial A'alaa" (G.V. 474). Let us add the above numbers:

 

32 + 30 + 34 + 474 = 570

19 x 30

 

[32:15] “The only people who truly believe in our revelations are those who fall prostrate upon hearing them. They glorify and praise their Lord (Wa sabbahu Bi'hamde Rabbehim), without any arrogance.”

 

The G.V. of the Arabic statement in the parenthesis is 384. This statement follows the word (Sojja'dan). We prostrate 34 times in our daily Contact Prayers. If we add the two numbers, we get:

 

384 + 34 = 418
19 x
22

(5 + 17)

 

The gematrical value of the entire verse is 5179, (5, 17, 9). Please note that the sum of the above four digits is 22, and 22 is 5 + 17. If we add 32, the sura number, 15, the verse number, 5179, the G.V. of the verse, 474, the G.V. of Sob'haana Rabbial A'alia, we get:

 

32 +15 + 5179 + 474 = 5700
19 x 300
GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

Reckless Manipulations, Double Counting, etc.

 

When we seek mathematical confirmation we must, God willing, follow a very clear line of thoughts. Our mathematics must be logical and fluent. We must not play with numbers recklessly just to obtain multiples of nineteen. 866 is the gematrical value of the command “And magnify Him constantly.” This number in the Quran represents the main key with which, God willing, we will ascertain how and how many times we must magnify our Lord in our daily Salat. 66 is the gematrical value of the word "Allah." The believers in Bombay have used the above two numbers in their calculations free at will just to obtain nineteen multiples. We must fear God; the consequences for playing with these numbers will prove to be painful.

 

One factor cannot participate in the same calculation twice; the repetition is meaningless and wrong. [94] is the sum of [11, 22, 22, 17 and 22]; [206951] is the sum of [(65), (6655), (6655), (665), and (6655)]. Although presented in different forms, the numbers in the above four brackets say the same thing. They reflect the 94 times that the believers in Bombay allege we must utter Allahu Akbar in our five daily Contact Prayers. All the calculations in which they have used more than one of the above four forms are incorrect. They have committed the same double counting error while dealing with 17, the number of the units of prayers in our daily Salat. 17 is the same as 2, 4, 4, 3, and 4. All their calculations in which the above two forms are used in conjunction with one another are invalid.

 

Why only Allahu Akbar and Al-Fatehah in some of their calculations, what about the rest of the components of the Salat? Why only one day in some of their calculations before Friday, what happens to the other five days? Concerning the Friday Prayer, why do they say Jummah? The importance of the Friday Prayer is such that the Almighty has assigned one of the suras of the Quran to it. Don't we get our information from the Quran? The title of Sura 62 is Friday, in Arabic AI-Jumu'ah. The only other occurrence of this word in the Quran is in 62:9 and the Almighty spells it out as AI-Jumu'ah (الجمه). It was God's will that the Messenger of the Covenant in the Authorized Translation of this verse in parenthesis writes, "Salat AI-Jumu'ah," thus, further stressing the importance of knowing the correct spelling of the word. The gematrical value of AI- Jumu'ah is 149 and not the 118 that the believers in Bombay have used in their calculations. Therefore, all their proofs in which the G.V. of Jummah is used are invalid.

 

This is a test, an ongoing test for the believers. Despite all of the above, a handful of proofs are presented by the believers in Bombay that are mathematically sound. It is God's system; a system that never changes. We must be tested! The test is to distinguish those whose conviction is with God alone from those whose eyes are fixed with the messenger. If we ask the Muhammadans to do their ablution as it is decreed by God (5:6), they will not be able to do it. For, they are the followers of the so called Sunna of the prophet. If we ask some of the Submitters to observe their entire Salat with a moderate tone as it is decreed by God in His fully detailed scripture (17:110), they will not be able to do it. For, they have decided to follow Dr. Khalifa's Salat Booklet. This they do in spite of the fact that they see with their own eyes that God's Messenger in the Authorized Translation has tried to draw their attention to the correct tone for the Contact Prayers. Brothers and sisters, let us pray to the Almighty that we do not fall in the same Satanic trap as those before us have. Let us truly commit ourselves to God alone and uphold His teachings, the teachings that are reflected in this Quran.

 

 

اَلجُمُعَهِ

 

[62:9] O you who believe, when the Congregational Prayer (Salat AI-Jumu'ah) is announced on Friday, you shall hasten to the commemoration of God, and drop all business. This is better for you, if you only knew.'

 

Sura 62, AI-Jumu'ah, is an awesome gift from Almighty God to the believers. It is meant to shed light on the issue of the Salat and help resolve the differences between the sincere believers. The following parameters, God willing, will be instrumental to help the believers witness the truth. 149 is the G. Value of “Al-Jumu'ah.” 73 is the sum of the sura number (62) and the number of the verses (11). 7293 is the G. Value of 62:9 that is the key verse in this sura. The G.Value of the five daily Contact Prayers are (Fajr, 283), (Zuhr, 1105), ('Asr, 360), (Maghrib, 1242), and (Ashaa, 372). There is a general consensus among all the Muslim nations in the world that the Congregational Prayer in Friday must be observed at noon. What is so incredible is that the three parameters just obtained from sura "Friday" do not produce any multiple of nineteen with any of the prayers we perform daily except the Noon Prayer:

 

149 + 1105 = 1254

19 x 66

 

73 + 1105 = 1178

19 x 62

 

7293 +1105 = 8398

19 x 442

GOD BE GLORIFIED

 

All three parameters confirm that in Friday we perform 15 units of prayers in which 98 times we magnify God by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289):

 

149 + 15 + 98 + 289 = 551

19 x 29

 

73 + 15 + 98 + 289 = 475

19 x 25

 

7293 + 15 + 98 + 289  = 7695
19 x 405

 

All three parameters confirm that our Noon Prayer in Friday is 2 units in which 13 times we magnify our Lord by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289):

 

149,2,13,289

19 x ...


73,2,13,
289

19 x ...


7293,2,13,289
19 x ...

 

The Congregational Prayer in Friday is 2 units in which 13 times we magnify our Lord by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289).

 

2 + 13 + 289 = 304

19 x 16
 

In Friday we have two prayers that are two units each. All three parameters confirm that the Dawn Prayer (283) and the Noon Prayer (1105) in Friday together have 4 units in which 26 times we magnify our Lord by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289).

 

149,283,1105,4,26,289

19 x ...


73,283,1105,4, 26,
289

19 x ...


7293,283,1105,4,26,289
19 x ...

 

In 62:9, "LeI'salati Men Yowmel Jumu'ah" (G.V. 486) refers to the prayer in Friday. In Friday we perform 5 prayers, 15 units, in which 98 times we magnify God by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289).

 

486 + 5  + 15 + 98 + 289 = 893
19 x 47

 

The above Arabic words (G.V. 486) specifically confirm that the Congregational Prayer, 1 of the prayers in Friday is 2 units in which 13 times we magnify our Lord by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289).

 

486,1,2,13,289
19 x...

 

While performing our daily Contact Prayers, in each of the first 6 days we magnify God 111 times. In the seventh day, Friday, we magnify Him 98 times. We magnify God by uttering Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289).

 

(111,289 x 6) + 98,289 = 766023

19 x 40317

 

While performing our Salat in the first 6 days, we magnify God 666 times. In Friday, we magnify Him 98 times. We magnify God by saying Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289). Almighty God has placed the Key for the final argument concerning the Salat issue in 17:111. If we add 17111 that represents the sura and the verse to the above numbers, we get:

 

17111 + 666 + 98 + 289 = 18164
19 x 956

 

The Key that should, God willing, settle the Salat issue is the command: "Wa Kabberhu Takbiraa," (G.V. 866).

 

(866 + 666 + 98 + 289)
1919

 

It is God's will that I, Keikhosrow Emami (896,92) declare that while performing our Salat, in six days, 666 times, and in Friday, 98 times we must magnify our Lord and utter Allahu Akbar (G.V. 289) every time.

 

89692,666,98,289
19 x ...

 

Glory be to God, 666 and 98 not only give us the correct number of times we must magnify God in the Salat we perform in seven days, but they also point at the Quran (666) that contains the proof (98).

 

 

“Wa Kabberhu Takbiraa”

 

The above Quranic statement with 11 Arabic letters has two parts to it. The first part, "Wa Kabberhu" (G.V. 233) says, “And magnify Him.” Yes, but how do we magnify Him? Should we say Allahu Akbar (289) or Allahu AI-Kabir (329)? The second part, "Takbiraa" (G.V. 633) says, “Constantly.” Yes, but what is the correct number of times that we must magnify God in our daily Salat? Is it 111 or 94? The believers in Bombay, India, say that Allahu Akbar (233,289) must be uttered 94 times in the daily Salat (633,94). Let us add the two numbers in parenthesis:

 

(233,289) + (633,94) = 296683

Not Multiple

 

The believers in Kano, Nigeria, say that Allahu AI-Kabir (233,329) must be uttered 111 times in our daily Salat (633,111). Let us add the two numbers:

 

(233,329) + (633,111) = 866440

Not Multiple

 

The Quran says that Allahu Akbar (233,289) must be uttered 111 times in our daily Salat (633,111). Let us add the two numbers:

 

(233,289) + (633,111 ) = 866400
19 x 19 x 24:00

ALLAHU AKBAR!

 

866400

8 + 6 + 6 + 4 + 0 + 0 = 24
1 Day = 24 Hours

Praise be to God, Lord of the Universe!
