Dr Pipes

Here is a link to a video by a Muslim tablighee his name is Shabir Allay and he lives in Toronto and his little game is the Miracle of number19 in the Qur'an. The reader can watch the video and here is the link

One of the examples is that the Basmala (Bism Allah al-Rahman al-Rahim) has 19 letters

However, this is not true. Here is the Basmala from the Cairo Qur'an

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

1. The first word بِسْمِ Bism should be Bi'ism or بإسم and this is the word that we find in Q96:1 and it is the correct Arabic. So how did al-Mufasereen deal with this disaster? They tell us that Allah shortened the word because Muslims have to repeat the word 113 when reciting the Qur'an

So far I can count 4 letters and if I add the short vowels (two kasras) then we have 6 letters

2. The second word is اللَّهِ Allah counts 4 letters however notice that above the word Allah we have a shadda (double consonant) sign as well as a fatha This means that we have 6 letters! And indeed al-Tabari tells us that the word Allah is a contraction of the word al-Ilah or 6 letters

3. The third word is الرَّحْمَٰنِ or al-Rahman and those that have no command of the Arabic language will tell us that this word is 6 letters. This is far from the truth. There is a shadda above the letter Ra and an alif after the letter meem This means al-Rahman is really al-Rrahmaan which means we have 8 letters not 6 letters and if we add the short vowels (2 fathas and one kasra) the total would be 11

4. الرَّحِيمِ or al-Rahim we are told that there are 6 letters in this word. This is not true because there is a shadda sign (double consonant) above the letter Ra (or al-Rrahim) which means that we have 7 letters not 6 and if we add the short vowels (1 fatha and one kasra) the number would be 9

So the total number of letter without the short vowels is 25 and with the short vowels it is 30!

This is means that in the case of the Basmala the Number 19 Miracle is a big fat lie

However, the real victims of this shameful lie are ignorant Pakistani and Indian Muslims that cannot speak read or write Arabic and repeat this nonsense and make fools of themselves
