Koran Trivia

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?

Submitted by Harry L Johns (United States), Dec 1, 2007 at 12:33

Does anyone know if the koran was studied for arithmetical facts?

For example, the middle verse of the Holy Bible reads, "It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man." What is the middle verse of the koran?

The number of letters (3,566,480) is known for the Bible, but is it known for the koran?

So, too, for other things regarding math. (Example: Jesus told the fishermen to cast their net over the right side of the boat, where they pulled up 143 fish. The number of times Jesus is recorded to have spoken to people is, supposedly, 143; the number of times 'all power' is used in the New Testament is 143, etc,, etc., etc.) Has this type of research been done for the koran?
