The first sentence of the Quran is bismillahirrahmanirrahim. It means "In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful".
Its is shortly known as Basmala.
The Quran consists of 114 chapters(suras). The Basmala is the opening statement of each chapter (sura) in the Quran except Sura (9).
The mathematical design of the Basmala is a direct proof of the divine source.
It consists of 19 letters, which is a prime number. The Quran consists of a number of chapters whichs is a multiple of 19, exactly 19x6.
It is unnumbered in all chapters of the Quran, except chapters (1) and (9). In the first chapter it is assigned to the number 1.
And in the 9th chapter it is completely ommitted.
The 19th chapter after the 9th chapter is number 27. In that chapter the basmala occurs again in verse 30
(note that: 271+30 = 57, or 19x3).
It is also noteworthy to say that 30 is the 19th composite number.
On this website we will cover many aspects of this mathematical design to show that it is indeed an intellectual proof for the modern world.
Those aspects include the number of words, letters and the use of the gematrical values of the Arabic letters of this unique sentence.
The gematrical value of a letter is the numerical value assigned to it.
GV: is an abbreviation for gematrical value. It is a decimal numeral system in which the 28 letters of the Arabic alphabet are assigned numerical values. They have been used in the Arabic-speaking world before the revelation of the Quran, during it and until about two centuries after it. So, it has been widely-known since before the 8th century Arabic numerals. In modern Arabic, the word abjadīyah means 'alphabet' in general. To read more about the gematrical value click here.
The following table includes the basic numerical parameters of the basmala.
|#||word||arabic||letters||gv individual letters||total gv|
|1||bism||بسم||3||2 60 40||102|
|2||allah||الله||4||1 30 30 5||66|
