Free Book: THE NUMERIC MIRACLE OF THE FIRST CHAPTER IN THE QUR’AN: “AL-FATIHAH”

“Al-Fatihah” means The Opening, and most fittingly, it is the opening chapter of the Holy Qur’an, and a chapter like no other, as the Prophet (pbuh) himself swore that God Almighty did not reveal any chapter which resembles Al-Fatihah in any Holy Scripture, be it the Old Testament, the New Testament, or the Holy Qur’an itself.

Having said this, we now embark on a magnificent journey with this captivating, albeit very short, chapter, but using one of the languages of our 21st century: the simple language of numbers.  The numeric patterns we are about to witness will not fail to fascinate, and remind us of the unintelligible wonders of this profound book that is the Holy Qur’an.  This system of numeric perfection is but a concrete declaration that no other than God Almighty could have designed such a book and revealed its message to humanity.

 

The Greatness of Al-Fatihah

When the prophet (pbuh) spoke of the greatest chapter in the whole of the Qur’an, he explained that this chapter was: "Alhamdu-lillahi Rabbil-'Alamin (i.e. Surat Al-Fatihah) which is the seven oft-repeated verses (Al-Mathani) and the Grand Qur’an which has been given to me.”   It is considered the mother of the Book, and on one occasion when God Almighty speaks of this Chapter in the Holy Qur’an, he mentions this chapter before mentioning the Qur’an itself:  { And We have bestowed upon thee the Seven Oft-repeated (verses) (i.e. Surat Al-Fatihah) and the Grand Qur'an } [Al-Hijr, 15:87].

In addition, Al-Fatihah is the only chapter which features in all five of the daily prayers of Muslims.  It is the first of the Qur’an’s 114 chapters, and God has chosen for it to consist of precisely 7 verses.

And now we may ask this question: Does this chapter carry with it an inherent miracle that is most suitable to our current age, and our modern times?  Does the language of numbers play its part in deciphering a further layer of beauty about Al-Fatihah?

The idea behind this study is very simple, because Surat Al-Fatihah, like any other chapter, or any other text for that matter, contains words and letters, and those are the focus of our study.  And after studying this brilliant chapter, we came to the unquestionable conclusion that the foundation of this numeric system of Al-Fatihah’s words and letters is the number 7.  This indeed makes sense, especially because God Almighty deliberately referred to this chapter as the “Seven Oft-Repeated Verses”, thereby giving specific emphasis to the number of its verses.  We will soon witness how all the numeric results related to this chapter are in fact perfect multiples of 7.

 

One thing we absolutely must remember is that the brilliant numeric consistencies in the Qur’an are not our ultimate goal per se. Just like the Qur’an contains scientific facts but is not a book of science, it contains numeric facts but is not a book of mathematics.  These are simply a means to an end, an end which involves fully appreciating the perfection and wonders of this Book, but more importantly, the message and the guidance that it carries with it to all of mankind:  { Verily this Qur'an doth guide to that which is most right (or stable), and giveth the Glad Tidings to the Believers who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a magnificent reward } [Al-Isra’, 17:9].
