    Surah 74
    The Cloaked One, (The One Wrapping Himself Up)

    http://www.noineworleans.org/hq/74.html
    Yusuf Ali Translation

    In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

    1. O thou wrapped up (in the mantle)!
    2. Arise and deliver thy warning!
    3. And thy Lord do thou magnify!
    4. And thy garments keep free from stain!
    5. And all abomination shun!
    6. Nor expect, in giving, any increase (for thyself)!
    7. But, for thy Lord's (Cause), be patient and constant!
    8. Finally, when the Trumpet is sounded,
    9. That will be- that Day - a Day of Distress,-
    10. Far from easy for those without Faith.
    11. Leave Me alone, (to deal) with the (creature) whom I created (bare and) alone!-
    12. To whom I granted resources in abundance,
    13. And sons to be by his side!-
    14. To whom I made (life) smooth and comfortable!
    15. Yet is he greedy-that I should add (yet more);-
    16. By no means! For to Our Signs he has been refractory!
    17. Soon will I visit him with a mount of calamities!
    18. For he thought and he plotted;-
    19. And woe to him! How he plotted!-
    20. Yea, Woe to him; How he plotted!-
    21. Then he looked round;
    22. Then he frowned and he scowled;
    23. Then he turned back and was haughty;
    24. Then said he: "This is nothing but magic, derived from of old;
    25. "This is nothing but the word of a mortal!"
    26. Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire!
    27. And what will explain to thee what Hell-Fire is?
    28. Naught doth it permit to endure, and naught doth it leave alone!-
    29. Darkening and changing the colour of man!
    30. Over it are Nineteen.
    31. And We have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and We have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this ?" Thus doth Allah leave to stray whom He pleaseth, and guide whom He pleaseth: and none can know the forces of thy Lord, except He and this is no other than a warning to mankind.

    32. Nay, verily: By the Moon,
    33. And by the Night as it retreateth,
    34. And by the Dawn as it shineth forth,-
    35. This is but one of the mighty (portents),
    36. A warning to mankind,-
    37. To any of you that chooses to press forward, or to follow behind;-
    38. Every soul will be (held) in pledge for its deeds.
    39. Except the Companions of the Right Hand.

    Excerpts from Postscript: Qur'anic Dharma,
    Preparation for the Triumph of the Religion of Truth
    by Jose Argüelles
    http://www.earthascending.com/maya/PVJD_06.html

    "Elijah Muhammad had taken his last wife, Tynetta, and their four childrento Cuernavaca, Mexico, in 1974, the same year that Dr. Rashid Kalif hadbroken the Qur'anic nineteen code. Elijah Muhammad passed away in 1975 andTynetta stayed on in Mexico, raising her family and studying the Qur'an,especially from the point of view of the research of Dr Rashid Kalif. Becauseof her pursuit of the nineteen code, Tynetta came across the my book, the Mayan Factor (1987), which contained the 0-19 code. After several visitswith Tynetta, first in Texas, and then Hawaii, in the fall of 1991, we finallymet at the home Elijah Muhammad had provided for her and the children inCuernavaca, Mexico. I cannot deny that I experienced a very powerful presencewhile seated at the dining room table.

    ...

    For all of the controversy generated by the Nation of Islam, it was clear through Tynetta's sharing that Elijah Muhammad, through the teachings of his mysterious teacher, Fard Muhammad, was a genuine seer and messenger,who, if nothing else, introduced the Qur'an to the dispossessed African people of the dawn living in America.

    The text of the Qur'an is profoundly non-linear, yet, its structure is a single symphonic whole. Because it was revealed to Muhammad in stages, it cannot be read enough to grasp the subtle juxtapositions of arguments, logics,and metaphors. Each reading of the Qur'an imprints one's consciousness evermore deeply with a spiritual program that transcends the words, penetratingand opening one's being with the perception of a spiritual realm of a magnitude far beyond the bounds of any logic.

    Over It Is Nineteen
    By Raymond A. Klesc
    http://www.submission.org/miracle/over.html

    "Suffice to say, the number nineteen permeates through, governs and authenticates the authorship of the Qur’an as being from God. For no one of this earth could have developed the intricate mathematical relationships within the Qur’an while maintaining a poetic and stylistic literature that has not been surpassed.

    What is significant, for the purpose of this article, is that the number nineteen refers to the mathematical code and also appears to be the signature, if you will, of God. God has created, through this coding, a means to authenticate and establish, without doubt, the legitimacy of the Qur’an as being the work of God and not the work of man.

    But why nineteen and why is it significant? All of God’s original scriptures, not only the Qur’an, were apparently mathematically coded with the number nineteen or its multiple. Even the universe bears God’s divine signature. The number nineteen possesses unique mathematical properties beyond the scope of this article, but for our purposes let’s consider just the following:

    1. The number nineteen is a prime number. In other words it is only divisible by itself and one. Numbers such as 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19… are all prime numbers. God has chosen the number 19 as his signature prime number.

    2. Nineteen embraces the first numeral (1) and the last numeral (9), as if to proclaim God’s attribute in the Qur’an (57:3) as the "first and the Last". "He is the First and the Last, and the Outward as well as the Inward: and is established on the throne of His almightiness."

    3. Nineteen looks the same in Semitic and European languages. Both components, 1 and 9, are the only numerals that look the same in these languages.

    4. Nineteen possesses many peculiar mathematical properties. For example, 19 is the sum of the first powers of 9 and 10 (9+10=19) and the difference between the second powers of 9 and 10 (100-81=19).

    5. Nineteen is the gematrical value of the word "ONE" in all the scriptural languages – Aramaic, Hebrew and Arabic (please refer to the insert concerning the definition of gematrical value). The number 19, therefore, proclaims the First Commandment in all the scriptures: that there is only ONE God. "

    The Bahá'í calendar is structured such that a year contains 19 months of 19 days each, as well as a 19-year cycle and a 361-year (19x19) supercycle. The Báb and his disciples formed a group of 19, and there were 19 Apostles of Bahá'u'lláh.

    Nineteen sometimes has been considered significant in astrology or esoteric religion because it is the sum of the number of the constellations of the zodiac (12) and the number of the classically-known "planets" (7, including the sun and moon
