When our revelations
are recited to them,
THAT WAS THEN,
AND THIS IS NOW!
"On the 27th night of Ramadan, 13 B.H. (Before Hijra) (610 A.D.), the Prophet Muhammad (the soul - the real person - not the body) was summoned to the highest possible point, millions of light years from the planet Earth, and this Quran was placed into his heart (2:185, 17:1, 44:3, 53:1-18, 97:1).
Subsequently, the Quran was released into Muhammad's memory, with Gabriel's mediation, over a period of 23 years, 610 to 632 A.D. (17:106). At the moment of release, Muhammad scrupulously wrote it down with his own hand (Appendix 28). What Muhammad left was the complete Quran, written in the chronological sequence of revelation, with detailed instructions for putting the revelations into the sequence decreed by God.
During the rearrangement process, the scribes who idolized the prophet added two verses at the end of Sura 9, the last sura revealed in Medina. This blasphemous act resulted in a 50-year war between Ali Ibn Abi Taaleb and his supporters on one side and the distorters of the Quran on the other side. The war ended when Hussein Ibn Ali and his family were martyred in Karbala.
It was the Umayyad ruler Marwan Ibn AI-Hakam (died in 684 AD) who destroyed the original Quran that was written by Muhammad's hand, "fearing the eruption of new disputes."
God's Messenger of the Covenant has presented overwhelming evidence that 9:128-129 do not belong in the Quran (Appendix 24). With the removal of these false verses, the Quran has finally been restored. Our generation is the first ever to receive the Quran in its purified and finalized form (see Appendices 1 and 28)."
As it turns out, the only duty of the final prophet was to deliver the Quran, the whole Quran, nothing but the Quran, and preach in accordance with its teachings.
[6:19] Say, “Whose testimony is the greatest?” Say, “God's. He is the witness between me and you that this Quran has been inspired to me, to preach it to you and whomever it reaches. Indeed, you bear witness that there are other gods beside God.” Say, “I do not testify as you do: there is only one god, and I disown your idolatry.”
Muhammad was forbidden by the Almighty from issuing any religious teachings beside the Quran.
[69:44-48] Had he uttered any other teachings, we would have punished him. We would have stopped the revelations to him. None of you could have helped him. This is a reminder for the righteous.
The final prophet did not collect the revelations into the Quran and was forbidden from explaining it.
[75:16-19] Do not move your tongue to hasten it. It is we who will collect it into Quran. Once we recite it, you shall follow such a Quran. Then it is we who will explain it.
Soon after Sura 110, the last in the chronological sequence, was revealed to the prophet, his life was ended on this Earth. Obviously, if the complete message was not delivered, Almighty God would not have terminated the life of His final prophet. The revelations of the Quran were sent down through Prophet Muhammad. But, in accordance with God's will, they were to be collected into the Quran, the book, after the prophet had departed. What is so ironic is that the Muslim masses, although in general, are oblivious to the teachings of the Quran, are so respectful of the book, the paper and the ink. It is conceivable that if God Almighty had allowed Muhammad to collect the Quran to its final format, his idolizers would have made the book an object of their worship. God's system never changes; that was then and THIS IS NOW.
"On January 31, 1990, sometime before dawn, Dr. Rashad Khalifa, God's Messenger of the Covenant, was martyred by one or more disbelievers who broke into the masjid earlier that night and waited for him to come in. It was a well known fact that Dr. Khalifa would come every day in the early hours to carry on his work on this translation.
By God's grace, he had completed his review of the majority of this translation, having finished through Sura 49 the evening before. He had given detailed instructions to the people who were involved in the proof reading about specific changes he had already made and the changes he planned to make. Except for these changes specified by him, and obvious grammatical or printing errors, the text has been left untouched.
New material has been added to two of the Appendices —15 and 17. In the last few months before Dr. Khalifa died, the awesome mathematical miracle confirming the 5 Contact Prayers was discovered by brothers of Masjid Tucson. Dr. Khalifa had detailed these miracles in the January, 1990, issue of the Submitters Perspective, the monthly newsletter of United Submitters International, of which he was the editor. They are herein reproduced in Appendix 15 under the section on the Contact Prayers.
In the February, 1990, issue of Submitters Perspective, also written and printed before he died, Dr. Khalifa confirmed through the Quran the fact that the righteous do not really die - they go directly to Paradise. That article is reproduced in Appendix 17 on death.
Thus, the appendices have been updated using his own material. Minor corrections to some of the mathematical tables in appendices 1, 2, 24, and 29 were also required; and two tables were found to be incorrect and therefore deleted."
Please note that the above quotations are from the "Revised Edition" of the Authorized English Version of the Quran, a translation that was done from the original by Dr. Rashad Khalifa. This translation is in a blue paperback and is without the Arabic text. All the praises are due to Almighty God. Sincere believers who followed the instructions left by God’s messenger completed the work. These believers were honored to become an instrument to carry out God's work.
As Prophet Muhammad was not destined to collect the revelations into the Quran, Rashad Khalifa was not destined to complete his final review in this translation. As it turns out, the only duty of the Messenger of the Covenant was to deliver the authorized translation of the Quran, the purified Quran that contains clear revelations and manifests the proof of its divine authorship. It is a part of God's system that we must be tested. Being able to pick the right translation is a very important test for those who call themselves "believers."
[39:17, 18] As for those who discard the worship of all idols, and devote themselves totally to God alone, they have deserved happiness. Give good news to My servants. They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom God has guided; these are the ones who posses intelligence.
The test is to distinguish those who really worship God alone and those who are the liars. The test is to distinguish those who trust in their Lord and know full well that the Almighty would never err and those who doubt God's wisdom.
It is not too difficult to understand that God's messengers leave good impression upon their companions. In many instances, this good impression left by the person of the messenger influences the thinking of the companions. Those who are more impressed with the messenger than the message, after messenger's departure, feel at loss. They get confused with their religion. It is an integral part of God's religion to understand that "the only duty of a messenger is to deliver the message." Therefore, without the message, the messenger has no significance. We must, God willing, receive the message rather than being over whelmed by the messenger. If we get stuck with the second authorized translation for God’s messenger completed it, we prove that we have not fully understood and appreciated the message. This action represents a form of idol worship. It shows that we have picked the messenger over the message.
We have been blessed with irrefutable solid proofs that the end of Sura 49, in the third review, marks the completion of the message (September and December issues of Universal Unity). Believing in God's message necessitates believing in its completeness. If this was not of an extreme importance, the Almighty would not have provided us with so many Quranic proofs. All the praises are due to Almighty God. We already know that, from the beginning of the Quran to the end of Sura 49, the word "GOD" occurred 2404 times. The sum of the verse numbers containing the same is 115638. If we place the two numbers side by side, we get:
19 x ...
The believers herein are presented with yet two more solid proofs.
1) The number of the "numbered" verses from the beginning of the Quran to the end of the Sura 49 is 4628. The number of the "numbered" verses from the end of Sura 49 to the end of the Quran is 1606. If we place the two numbers side by side, we get:
19 x ...
2) In 4628 verses, the word "GOD" is mentioned 2404 times. If we place the two numbers side by side, we get:
19 x ...
GOD BE GLORIFIED
All the praises are due to Almighty God. The sincere believers do not have any doubt that although God's messenger did not personally complete the third revision, he indeed delivered God's complete message to the whole world. The third and the final translation by God's Messenger of the Covenant was destined to be collected into the book, the revised "Authorized English Version" after he had departed. God's system never changes. We have some among us who say, "Bring a translation other than this. or change it!"
Glory be to God. It is incredible that we can see so soon the history unfolding before our eyes. We already have the disbelievers of the worst kind (63:3) among us who seek every opportunity to undermine God's work. These human devils (6:112) wish to change the authorized translation of the Quran. And, there are those who perhaps without being aware of it are turning on their heels. Subconsciously, they wish to go back to the second translation for it was collected into a book by God's messenger. Their love for the messenger overshadows their believing in the message.
The last print of the Authorized English Version, in a green paperback with the Arabic text, published by Islamic Productions, is a clear example of reversion. In the following, God willing, we shall review some of the reasons.
1) In regard to words "Islam" and "Muslim," we note inconsistency in the book. In the translation of text of the Quran, we see the words "Submission" and "Submitter" are used. But, in other places such as the Proclamation and the Introduction, the Arabic words are used with prejudice. Islam is not a name rather a description of one's total submission to God alone. One of the main reasons for doing the revision for the third time was to convey the true meanings of the two words.
2) Much is taken away from the "INTRODUCTION" and also from the page that tells us how the Quran was revealed (On the 27th night of Ramadan ...). What are the publishers assuming?
3) Footnotes 1:6 and 2:3 refer to the appendix 15 for the details regarding the 5 daily contact prayers. There are no such details in this print!??
4) Table 8 in appendix 2 and table 40 in appendix 24 are incorrect. These were corrected in the third revision. Why the corrections were not appreciated?
5) Section 59 of appendix 24 is incorrect. This was deleted in the third revision. Why was it put back in?
6) Section 63 of appendix 24 is incorrect. Both suras 9 and 27 are to be either included or excluded. This was deleted in the third revision. It is put back in again. Why?
7) In table 41 of appendix 24, the sum of the verse numbers of the Sura 4 is incorrect. This was corrected in the third revision. But to no avail, the incorrect information is kept in. Except for the translation of the text of the Quran that in accordance with God's will they had no choice but to do what is right, everything else is basically copied from the second translation. What is this? Is this an expression of loyalty towards the second translation for God’s messenger completed it? Or, is there any prejudice against the third revision for the believers who just followed the instructions left by the messenger collected it?
Dr. Rashad Khalifa was not destined to collect the third revision into its final format (75:17). The believers who followed the instructions and completed the work should, God willing, re-edit the third revision to have the minor mistakes corrected. Glory is to God; with the Arabic text, side by side, the final version of the Authorized Translation shall, then, be ready for the whole world.
666 — “Indeed, it is a glorious Quran, in a preserved master tablet.”
It is the intent of this newsletter, God willing, to present the readers with easily verifiable and yet utterly irrefutable physical evidences that the Quran, The Final Testament, is indeed the highly publicized "666" that the corrupted Pauline church is afraid of. Satan's scheme reflected in his book of "The Revelation," placed in the Bible, to give "the number" a bad connotation shall backfire. The 19-based mathematical miracle of the Quran shall prove to the whole world that the book, "666" without a doubt is “a revelation from the Lord of the universe.” The Authorized Translation of the Quran shall find its way into every household. The sincere souls shall receive the message; they shall embrace God's religion in throngs. The corrupted religionists shall be deprived from their illicit earnings; money is their god. When money is taken away from these human devils, they perish.
[8:8] For He has decreed that the truth shall prevail, and the falsehood shall vanish, in spite of the evildoers.”
The title of Sura 74 in the Quran is "The Hidden Secret." This secret refers to the mathematical miracle of the Quran and its common denominator, number 19. This number is mentioned only once in the Quran and that is in Sura 74. It is noteworthy that the year of the discovery of the miracle was 1974.
The first verse in this Sura says, “O you hidden secret.” From this verse, 74:1, inclusive, to the end of the Quran, there are 741 verses. GOD IS GLORIFIED!
74:1 is addressing the secret of the Quran and the Quran is 666. If we add the above three numbers, we again get:
1 + 666)
19 x 39
Who could design the Quran but God alone? Check the above awesome phenomenon. Can it be duplicated? Of all the 6234 numbered verses in the Quran, 74:1 is the only verse that can satisfy all the following requirements.
1) The verse clearly points at the code "19."
2) The Sura number and the verse number concatenated give a number (741) equal to that of the number of the verses from the end of the Quran.
3) The Sura number (74), the verse number (1), and (666), representing the Quran, added together produce the same 741 again. Are these coincidences? All the praises are due to Almighty God. He will show us His signs until we. God willing, become certain.
1971 was the year the covenant of the prophets was fulfilled. The gematrical value of the name of the Messenger of the Covenant, Rashad Khalifa, is (505,725), 1230. The difference between the two numbers is:
The date of the fulfillment of the prophecy in the lunar calendar was 12, 3, 1391. The gematrical value of the name Rashad Khalifa is 505,725. The difference between the two numbers is:
Number 725,666 points at the human Khalifa whose name is mathematically coded in the Quran; and, the Quran is "666."
[74:1] “0 you hidden secret.”
The gematrical value of this verse is 802. The secret of the Quran, in accordance with God's will, was unveiled through Rashad Khalifa (505,725). And, the Quran is "666." If we add the above four numbers, we get:
505 + 725 + 666)
19 x 142
Glory is to God; 2698 is the number of times the word "GOD" is mentioned in the Quran.
[74:32, 33, 34, 35] Absolutely. (I swear) by the moon. And the night as it passes. And the morning as it shines, this is one of the great miracles.
If we add 666, representing the Quran, to the Sura and the verse numbers, we get:
+ 74 + 32 + 33 + 34 + 35 = 874
19 x 46
If we add 666 to 7432333435, as one whole number, we again get a number that is a multiple of nineteen:
19 x ...
GOD BE GLORIFIED
[48:28] He is the One who sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it prevail over all other religions. God suffices as a witness.
