In the Name of Allah, Most Merciful, Most Beneficent

May prayers and peace be upon the prophet Mohammad,

his family and his companions

Introduction

The logical reasoning says that a coincidence does not happen many times in the same book, except if the author of that book has arranged it following a specific way. The matching results, illustrated in this article, with the number 7 are clear evidences that God Almighty, Allah, has arranged his book in a form that is in harmony with that number, so that it may lead us to the conclusion that the Quran is a revelation from the Creator of the seven heavens.

The number seven has a great presence in our life and worship, because the heavens are seven, the colors are seven, the days are seven, the orbits in the atom are seven, we turn around the Kaaba seven times, we run between Safa and Marwa seven times, we stone Lucifer seven times, we are commanded by seven commands, we are forbidden to commit seven sins, the greatest sins that directly lead to Hell are seven, there are seven kind of people Allah will put them under His shade on the day of judgment, … and so many other countless things.

The previous makes the number seven on the top of other numbers after the number one that guides to Unitarianism of God Almighty, because he is one and unique.

Number one is the most repeated number in Quran, after it, comes the number seven, and that might be an indication to the Unitarianism of the Creator firstly, then to his power in creation. Allah says:

“It is Allah who has created seven heavens and of the earth the like. His command descends between them, that you may know that Allah has power over all things, and that Allah surrounds all things in (His) knowledge.” (Al-Talaq 65:12).

Now contemplate with me the following clear facts:

The number of heavens is seven, and when we look in the Quran for the “seven heavens” we find it repeated throughout the whole Quran seven times exactly as the number of these heavens!

Among all the numbers, the number seven is the first number stated in Quran.

When we look for the appearing frequencies of all the numbers in Quran, we find that the number seven is the most repeated number after the number.

When we look at the first chapter in Allah’s book, that is Al-Fatihah (the opening), we find that it is made of seven verses, and it is composed of twenty-one alphabets, which is a multiple of seven (21=7*3).

But the astonishing thing in this great Sura which consists of 7 verses is that the number of letters of Allah’s name in this Sura is seven by seven!!! I.e. the number of the letters “A”, “L” and “H” in this Sura is 49 letters, i.e. 7*7.

God Almighty has told us about the number of the doors of Hell, may Allah protect us from it, when He said: “To it are seven Gates.” (Al-Hijr 15:44). We find that the word “Hell” is repeated 77 times throughout the whole Quran and this number is also a multiple of seven, and made of 7 and 7, and equal to 7*11, so, Hell has seven gates and was repeated in the Quran in a number of times that is a multiple of seven.

The Number Seven in the Holy Quran

The first time the number seven is stated in the Quran is in the verse when God Almighty said: “Then He turned to the heaven, and made them into seven heavens. And of all things he hath perfect knowledge” (Al-Baqarah 2:29).

And the last time the number seven is stated in the Quran is in the verse: “And We have built above you seven strong (heavens)” (Al-Nabaa 78:12).

Now look at the following facts:

When we count the number of Suras from the Sura 2, where the number 7 is stated for the first time, to the Sura 78, where the number 7 is stated for the last time, we find that there are exactly 77 chapters, and this number is a multiple of seven.

When we count the number of verses from the verse (2:29), where 7 appears for the first time, to the verse (78:12), where 7 appears for the last time, we find that there are exactly 5649 verses, and this number is also a multiple of seven.

When we count the number of verses from the beginning of Surat Al-Baqarah 2 (2:1), where 7 appears for the first time, to the end of Surat An-Naba 78 (78:40), where 7 appears for the last time, we find that there are 5705 verses, and this number is also a multiple of seven!

The question now is: Is it a coincidence that the number of Suras is a multiple of seven, and the number of verses is also a multiple of seven, in verses that are talking about the number seven?!

The Most Beautiful Word

It is the word “Allah” Glory be to Him, God Almighty has arranged that word in his book following a strong pattern based also on the number seven as a proof that He is the Lord of the seven heavens.

The word “Allah” was stated for the first time in the first verse of the Quran, which is “In the name of Allah, most Gracious most Merciful.” (Al-Fatihah 1:1), while the last time this glorious name was stated was in the verse: “Allah, the Eternal, the Absolute;” (Al-Ikhlas 112:2)

Now look at the following wonderful facts and their relation with the number 7:

From the Sura 1, where “Allah” was stated for the first time, to the Sura 112, where “Allah” was stated for the last time, there are exactly 112 Suras, and this number is a multiple of seven.

From the verse (1:1) to the verse (112:2) there are 6223 verses, and this number is also a multiple of seven.

The total sum of letters in the two verses is 28, which is a multiple of seven.

The total sum of Allah letters (i.e. ‘A’, ‘L’ and ‘H’) in the two verses is 14 letters, which is also a multiple of seven!

A Wonderful Precision

To any one who claims that the Quran is corrupted, we present to him the following facts:

The number of alphabets used as Initials is 14, i.e. 7*2.

The Initials are grouped into 14 different sets, i.e. 7*2.

The numbers of Quran’s alphabets is 28, i.e. 7*4.

The number of the words in the first verse and the last verse in Quran is 7.

The number of words in the first Sura and the last Sura is 49= 7 * 7.

The number of Suras whose number of verses is multiples of 7 is 14 chapters, i.e. 7*2.

The first Sura of them is Al-Fatihah with 7 verses, and the last of them is Sura 107 Al-Ikhlas with 7 verses.

The Arabic name for Sura 1 is composed of 7 letters and so is the Arabic name for Sura 107.

The Prophet, may peace be upon Him, lived for 63 years, i.e. 7*9.

Is this numerical precision with the number 7 a coincidence? Or is it clear proof to anyone who has any doubt in the divine origin of the Quran, and that it is Allah’s true word?

“Lo! We, even We, reveal the Reminder, and lo! We verily are it's Guardian”. Al-Hijr 15:9
