786 PROOF, SIGN, MIRACLE Proof = to accept an assertion of something as TRUE, validate; evidence; convincing i.e. Proof that GOD exist, Sign = something that suggest the presence or existence of a FACT Miracle = an event that appears inexplicable (impossible) by law of nature We see these words in the Quran quite often, I wanted to see if there is a relationship between them Miracles are Proofs of the messenger ship, All Miracles come from GOD Jesus’ Miracle [3:49] As a messenger to the Children of Israel: "I come to you with a sign from your Lord - I create for you from clay the shape of a bird, then I blow into it, and it becomes a live bird by GOD's leave. I restore vision to the blind, heal the leprous, and I revive the dead by GOD's leave. I can tell you what you eat, and what you store in your homes. This should be a PROOF for you, if you are believers. [3:50] "I confirm previous scripture - the Torah - and I revoke certain prohibitions imposed upon you. I come to you with sufficient PROOF from your Lord. Therefore, you shall observe GOD, and obey me. Miracles serve as Signs Saaleh [7:73] To Thamoud we sent their brother Saaleh. He said, "O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. PROOF has been provided for you from your Lord: here is GOD's camel, to serve as a sign for you. Let her eat from GOD's land, and do not touch her with any harm, lest you incur a painful retribution. Shu`aib: Cheating, Dishonesty Condemned [7:85] To Midyan we sent their brother Shu`aib. He said, "O my people, worship GOD; you have no other god beside Him. PROOF has come to you from your Lord. You shall give full weight and full measure when you trade. Do not cheat the people out of their rights. Do not corrupt the earth after it has been set straight. This is better for you, if you are believers. Hud [11:53] They said, "O Hood, you did not show us any PROOF, and we are not abandoning our gods on account of what you say. We will never be believers with you. Miracles serve as Proofs [11:64] "O my people, this is GOD's camel to serve as a PROOF for you. You shall let her eat from GOD's earth, and do not touch her with any harm, lest you incur an immediate retribution." Moss’s Miracle [20:22] "And hold your hand under your wing; it will come out white without a blemish; another PROOF. Characteristic of GOD’s Proof [11:28] He (Noah) said, "O my people, what if I have a solid PROOF from my Lord? What if He has blessed me out of His mercy, though you cannot see it? Are we going to force you to believe therein? [6:57] Say, "I have solid PROOF from my Lord, and you have rejected it. I do not control the retribution you challenge me to bring. Judgment belongs with GOD alone. He narrates the TRUTH, and He is the best judge." [11:88] He said, "O my people, what if I have solid PROOF from my Lord; what if He has provided me with a great blessing? It is not my wish to commit what I enjoin you from. I only wish to correct as many wrongs as I can. My guidance depends totally on GOD; I have put my trust in Him. To Him I have totally submitted. [12:108] Say, "This is my path: I invite to GOD, on the basis of a clear PROOF, and so do those who follow me. GOD be glorified. I am not an idol worshiper." [23:45] Then we sent Moses and his brother Aaron with our revelations and a profound PROOF. [36:69] What we taught him (the messenger) was not poetry, nor is he (a poet). This is but a formidable PROOF,* and a profound Quran. Questioning God's Wisdom* [6:124] When a powerful PROOF comes to them, they say, "We will not believe, unless we are given what is given to GOD's messengers!" GOD knows exactly who is best qualified to deliver His message.* Such criminals will suffer debasement at GOD, and terrible retribution as a consequence of their evil scheming. *6:124 Jealousy and ego are human traits that provoke some people to question God's wisdom in selecting His messengers. Corrupted Muslim scholars have uttered this same utterance regarding the revelation of the Quran's mathematical code through God's Messenger of the Covenant. GOD through His messenger explains the Quran's Mathematical Code as a Tangible, Irrefutable Proof The Quran's Mathematical Code: Tangible, Irrefutable Proof [4:174] O people, a PROOF has come to you from your Lord; we have sent down to you a profound beacon. *11:17 The Quran's 19-based mathematical code is a built-in proof of divine authorship. It is noteworthy that the word ``Bayyinah'' (proof) is mentioned in the Quran 19 times. What does GOD’s Proof do for believers .[74:31] We appointed angels to be guardians of Hell, and we assigned their number (19) (1) to disturb the disbelievers, (2) to convince the Christians and Jews (that this is a divine scripture), (3) to strengthen the faith of the faithful, (4) to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of Christians, Jews, as well as the believers, and (5) to expose those who harbor doubt in their hearts, and the disbelievers; they will say, "What did GOD mean by this allegory?" GOD thus sends astray whomever He wills, and guides whomever He wills. None knows the soldiers of your Lord except He. This is a reminder for the people. [17:59] What stopped us from sending the miracles is that the previous generations have rejected them. For example, we showed Thamoud the camel, a profound (miracle), but they transgressed against it. We sent the miracles only to instill reverence. Miracles are for the Believers [3:49] As a messenger to the Children of Israel: "I come to you with a sign from your Lord - I create for you from clay the shape of a bird, then I blow into it, and it becomes a live bird by GOD's leave. I restore vision to the blind, heal the leprous, and I revive the dead by GOD's leave. I can tell you what you eat, and what you store in your homes. This should be a PROOF for you, if you are believers. Disbelievers Reaction to GOD’s Proof [23:71] Indeed, if the TRUTH conformed to their wishes, there would be chaos in the heavens and the earth; everything in them would be corrupted. We have given them their PROOF, but they are disregarding their PROOF. [30:58] Thus, we have cited for the people in this Quran all kinds of examples. Yet, no matter what kind of PROOF you present to the disbelievers, they say, "You are falsifiers." [42:35] Those who argue against our proofs will find out that they have no basis. [37:14] When they see PROOF, they ridicule it. [38:8] "Why did the PROOF come down to him, instead of us?" Indeed, they are doubtful of My PROOF. Indeed, they have not yet tasted My retribution. [98:1] Those who disbelieved among the people of the scripture, as well as the idol worshipers, insist on their ways, despite the PROOF given to them.* *98:1-2 The proof is the Quran's mathematical code (Appendix 1) and the messenger is Rashad Khalifa. The number of the sura (98), plus the verse number (2), plus the numerical value of ``Rashad Khalifa'' (1230) add up to 1330 (19x70), the same total as in 81:19 (Appendix 2). Not all Proofs are Miracles Additional Proofs From God [16:65] GOD sends down from the sky water to revive the land after it had died. This should be (sufficient) PROOF for people who hear. [16:13] And (He created) for you on earth things of various colors. This is a (sufficient) PROOF for people who take heed. [16:67] And from the fruits of date palms and grapes you produce intoxicants, as well as good provisions. This should be (sufficient) PROOF for people who understand. [16:69] Then eat from all the fruits, following the design of your Lord, precisely. From their bellies comes a drink of different colors, wherein there is healing for the people. This should be (sufficient) PROOF for people who reflect.* *16:69 Besides its recognized nutritive value, honey has been scientifically proven as a healing medicine of certain allergies and other ailments. [16:79] Do they not see the birds committed to fly in the atmosphere of the sky? None holds them up in the air except GOD. This should be (sufficient) PROOF for people who believe. [25:62] He is the One who designed the night and the day to alternate: a sufficient PROOF for those who wish to take heed, or to be appreciative. [34:9] Have they not seen all the things in front of them and behind them, in the heaven and the earth? If we willed, we could have caused the earth to swallow them, or caused masses to fall on them from the sky. This should be a sufficient PROOF for every obedient servant [29:44] GOD created the heavens and the earth, TRUTHfully. This provides a sufficient PROOF for the believers. Mathematical Miracle of the Quran* [41:41] Those who have rejected the Quran's PROOF* when it came to them, have also rejected an Honorable book. [38:1] S. (Saad),* and the Quran that contains the PROOF.** *38:1 This Initial (Saad) occurs in suras 7, 19, & 38 a total of 152 times, 19x8 (Appendix 1). **38:1 The word "Zikr" is made distinct from the Quran and clearly points at the Quran's miraculous mathematical code. See 15:6, 9; 16:44; 21:2, 24; 26:5; & 36:11, 69. *41:41 The word "Zikr" refers to the Quran's mathematical code, as made clear in 38:1. [98:4] In fact, those who received the scripture did not dispute until the PROOF was given to them. The Gross Blasphemy [10:68] They said, "GOD has begotten a son!" Be He glorified. He is the Most Rich. To Him belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth. You have no PROOF to support such a blasphemy. Are you saying about GOD what you do not know? [23:117] Anyone who idolizes beside GOD any other god, and without any kind of PROOF, his reckoning rests with his Lord. The disbelievers never succeed. [40:56] Surely, those who argue against GOD's revelations without PROOF are exposing the arrogance that is hidden inside their chests, and they are not even aware of it. Therefore, seek refuge in GOD; He is the Hearer, the Seer. All Believers Are Redeemed, Regardless of the Name of Their Religion [2:111] Some have said, "No one will enter Paradise except Jews or Christians!" Such is their wishful thinking. Say, "Show us your PROOF, if you are right." The Disbelievers Always Losers [11:63] He said, "O my people, what if I have solid PROOF from my Lord, and mercy from Him? Who would support me against GOD, if I disobeyed Him? You can only augment my loss.
