This post is the first in a series of posts marking interesting occurrences in the Quran. Note: the Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammed (PBUH) over 23 years, so this math is not only extraordinary, but also painstakingly hard to do while being extremely poetic. Enjoy:)

1. If you add up the number of verses in the Quran, you get 6236. You also get 6236 when you add the evens sums of: verses in each chapter of the Quran plus the chapter number (Ex: chapter 114 has 6 verses, so the sum is 120, which is even, so it can be added to the other even sums to get 6236).

2. If you add up the number of chapters of the Quran (1+2+3+4+5+6…+113+114) you’ll get 6555 (easy way to do this is 114*115/2). You also get 6555 when you add the odds sums of: verses in each chapter of the Quran plus the chapter number (Ex: chapter 110 has 3 verses, so the sum is 113, which is odd, so it can be added to the other even sums to get 6236).

3. Water is mentioned 32 times in the Quran. Land is mentioned 13 times. The ratio of 32:13 is the ratio of water to land on earth. That would make the water percentage of the earth 71.11111111111… percent. According to google (try it 🙂 that percentage is arround 71 percent, with some sources citing 71.11 percent, but I still need to find an exact reliable source :(.

4. Day is mentioned 365 times in the Quran.

5. Month is mentioned 12 times.

6. Moon is mentioned 28 times (lunar month is 28.5 days).

7. Prayer is mentioned 5 times (Muslims pray 5 times a day).

(see this link for more ratios… andthis link)

8. The Quran regularly cites the Earth’s seven layers, and the sky’s seven layers (for Earth: Crust, four layers of Mantle: [Lithosphere(also part of crust)], Asthenosphere, Lower Mantle, D” Layer, outer core, inner core)(for sky: Troposphere, Ozonosphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere, Exosphere, Lonosphere)

P.S. The Magnetosphere is outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

9. Human being is used 65 times in the Quran, while words used to describe human development (EX: Embryo) also add up to 65.

10. The Quran has many many many situations where being a multiple of 19 is a mathematical index. The first verse is 19 letters long. 19*6 is 114, the number of suras and times Bismillah is used. There are 19 suras (or chapters) from the missing Bismillah in Sura 9 to the extra Bismillah in Sura 27………………………………. (the list is pretty long, but you can see the above link which has most of them (pretty long read though) 🙂
