Night of Destiny, 27th Ramadan: mathematical confirmation


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[97:1] We revealed it in the Night of Destiny.*
[97:2] How awesome is the Night of Destiny!
[97:3] The Night of Destiny is better than a thousand months.
[97:4] The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by their Lord's leave, to carry out every command.
[97:5] Peaceful it is until the advent of the dawn.

*97:1 The Quran was placed into Muhammad's soul on the 27th night of Ramadan, 13 B.H. (Before Hijrah). See also 17:1, 44:3, 53:1-18, and Appendix 28.

  1. Sura 97 (Al-Qadr) contains 3 occurrences of the phrase "laylat al-qadr" (the night of destiny). The Arabic phrase "laylat al-qadr" itself consists of 9 letters. Therefore, within this sura, there are 27 (3 X 9) letters that participate in the proper name of this very special night. [1]

  2. "Peaceful IT is until the advent of the dawn" [Quran 97:5] (Arabic: salamun HIYA hatta mathlail fajr). The word IT (HIYA) refers to the night in question. It is interesting that the location of this word is 27th out of the 30 total words that comprise this sura.
    [Note that 30 is the universally accepted number of days in a month. The plural forms of the Arabic word "days" ("YAWMAYN" and "AYYAM") mentioned in the Quran 30 times to give us an indication of the number of days in a month, just as the day in singular form (YWM) is mentioned in the Quran 365 times for the number of days in a year, another miraculous feature of the Quran.] [1]

  3. The gematrical value of "Laylat Al Qadr" is 410 (see last two words in 97:1 for confirmation).
    The nine Arabic letters that make up this phrase have the following values (letters shown in English equivalents): L=30, Y=10, L=30, T=5, A=1, L=30, Q=100, D=4, R=200.
    If we add 410, the sum of the numbers shown above, plus the Sura number (97) and the verse numbers in which "Laylat Al Qadr" occurs (1, 2, 3), we get:     410 + 97 + 1 + 2 + 3 = 513, or 19 x 27 [2] (and 27 is the number representing the specific night).

  4. Sura 97 is titled Destiny (Al-Qadr).
    Ramadan is the 9th month in the lunar calendar.
    The Night of Destiny is the 27th night.
    If you add: 97 + 9 + 27 = 133 (19 x 7)

  5. If you add the gematrical value of "Laylat Al Qadar" (410) and the Night of Destiny (27), you get: 410 + 27 = 437 (19 x 23).

  6. The phrase "laylat al-qadr" occurs in verses 97:1, 2 and 3. These verses have (see Table 1 below) 20, 19 and 20 letters respectively, for a total of 59 letters. Ramadan is the 9th month in the lunar calendar. The Night of Destiny is the 27th night.
    If you add 9 + 27 + 59 = 95 (19 x 5)

    Table 1: Sura 97, Structure of verses 1-3
    Verse Letters Gematrical Value
    1 20 695
    2 19 733
    3 20 1926
    Total 59 3354

  7. If you concatenate the Sura number (97) followed by, for each verse where Night of Destiny occurs the verse number, number of letters, gematrical value of the verse, followed by the month for Ramadan (9) and the day for Night of Destiny (27) you get:
    97;    1, 20, 695;    2, 19, 733;    3, 20, 1926;    9, 27
    = 19 x 51116155378807010627733

  8. Sura 97 has 5 verses. The phrase "laylat al-qadr" appears three times in the sura, each with a gematrical value of 410. If you sum up 410 three times, you get 410 + 410 + 410 = 1230. Ramadan is month 9 in the calendar and the night is the 27th night.
    If you add: 97 + 5 + 1230 + 9 + 27 = 1368 (19 x 72)

  9. The following discovery was made by a fellow Submitter recently. God tells us the Quran was revealed in the Night of Destiny.
    The gematrical value of Al-Quran is 383. The gematrical value of Ramadan is 1091.
    If we add: 383 (Al-Quran) + 1091 (Ramadan) + 27 (Night of Destiny) we get 1501 = 19 x 79.
    Note: adding the gematrical value of Ramadan (1091) + the gematrical value of "Laylat Al Qadr" (410) also gives us 1501 = 19 x 79.
