Canadian Mathematician Tried to Prove Quran False, Ended up Accepting Islam


Gary Miller was a professor of Mathematics at the University of Toronto. He also was a Christian missionary who noticed that Muslim people were almost impossible to convert to Christianity. In 1977 he decided to study the Quran with the goal of finding scientific and historical errors that would help in convincing Muslims they are following a false religion.

The first thing professor Miller noticed was that many verses of the Quran challenge people to use reason:

“Will they not then contemplate the Quran? and if it had been from other than God, indeed they would have found in it many contradictions.” (Quran 4:82)

”… and in case you are suspicious about what we have been sending down upon our bondman, (i.e. prophet Muhammad) then come up with a surah of like, and invoke your witnesses, apart from God, in case you are sincere.” (Quran 2:23)

After careful study professor Miller was amazed by the Quran and reached the conclusion that it cannot be the work of a human being. He accepted Islam and started calling people to the straight path through lectures and other activities. His lecture “the Amazing Quran” shows the deep knowledge he acquired during his study of the book of Allah. Here are some of the points he makes in the lecture:

“There is no such author who writes a book and then challenges others that this book is errorless. As for the Quran, it is the other way around. It tells the reader that there are no errors in it and then challenges all people to find any, if any.

The Quran is not Prophet Muhammad’s autobiography as many non muslims claim. It does not mention the hard events in Prophet Muhammad’s personal life, such as the death of his wife Khadijah, or the death of his daughters and sons. Strangely enough, the verses that were revealed during a time of defeat for the Muslims proclaimed victory while those revealed at time of victory warned against arrogance and called for more sacrifices and efforts. If one writes his own autobiography, he would magnify the victories and justify the defeats. The Quran did the opposite and this is consistent and logical: it was not a history of a specific period but rather a text that sets general rules for the relationship between God almighty and the people.

There is a chapter in the Quran called Maryam (Mary) in which the mother of Jesus is eulogized in a way not even found in the bible. At the same time, there is no chapter in the name of Muhammad’s wife Aisha or his daughter Fatemah. The name of prophet Isa (Jesus) is mentioned 25 times in the Quran while the name of prophet Muhammad is mentioned only five times.

If you were in the situation of prophet Muhammad while he and Abu-Bakr were inside the cave of hira surrounded by the unbelievers who could have seen them if they had just looked down. The human reaction would be to search for a back exit or some other way out or to shush in order not to be heard. However, the prophet told Abu-Bakr “Grieve not; surely Allah is with us.” (Quran 9:40). This is not the mentality of a deceiver; it is the mentality of a prophet who has the confidence that God would certainly take care of him.

Surah Al-Masad (Palm Fibres) was revealed ten years before the death of Abu-Lahab, the prophet’s uncle. It said that Abu-Lahab and his wife will die unbelievers and will be in the hellfire. They could have easily proved the Quran to be wrong by accepting Islam. But, they did not believe or even pretend to believe. How could the prophet be that confident unless he was sure that the Quran was God’s revelation?

Commenting on the verse: “That is of the tidings of the unseen that we reveal to you; in no way did you (yourself) know it, neither your people, even before this. So endure patiently; surely the end is for the pious.” (Quran 11:49). Miller writes that none of the scriptures uses this kind of style; that is, giving the reader the piece of information and then telling him it is new information. It is really a unique challenge. What if the people of Makkah, even by pretense, had said they knew that before? What if one scholar discovered later that this information was already known before? However, this did not happen.

Professor Miller mentioned what contemporary Catholic Encyclopedia includes under the entry of Quran. It mentions that despite the plethora of studies, theories, and attempts to attack the veracity of Quranic revelation under many pretexts, none of them can be logically adopted. The Church itself did not dare to adopt any of such theories but at the same time it did not admit the truthfulness of the Muslims’ theory that the Quran is, without doubt, the last heavenly revelation.
Wow. Masha'Allah! :salute:

إِنَّكَ لَا تَهْدِي مَنْ أَحْبَبْتَ وَلَٰكِنَّ اللَّهَ يَهْدِي مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِالْمُهْتَدِينَ

(28:56) Indeed, [O Muhammad], you do not guide whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided.

الله يهدي من يشاء بغير حساب

Imagine we are born into this, Alxamdulilah:rejoice:
Many ungrateful Muslims don't realize the huge blessings bestowed upon them by the Lord. They were born Muslims and they don't care much about their religion.

Wallahi wa cajiib, I guess it goes to show just being born into it is no guarantee of anything
Do not waste your time with those God has blinded and deafened, theyre laangaabs who fear pathetic saancadde humans more then he who chose them over all the worlds. The #19 is one of the things that sets the Quran apart from other books.
God’s Miracle of 19 in Quran
The miracle of 19: This site is dedicated to spreading the truth about God’s Universal Message in Mathematics – our soul’s Absolute Submission and Devotion to God. This is the First Commandment in all of God’s scriptures, including the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Final Testament

Like the Quran itself, the Quran’s mathematical coding ranges from the very simple, to the very complex. The Simple Facts about the Quranic mathematical code of 19 are those observations that can be ascertained without using any tools. The complex facts require the assistance of a calculator or a computer:

Miracle 19 Fact #1. The first verse (1:1), known as “Basmalah,” consists of 19 letters (Basmalah: image with letters marked).

Miracle 19 Fact #2. The Quran consists of 114 suras, which is …………..19 x 6.

Miracle 19 Fact #3. The total number of verses in the Quran is 6346, or ….19 x 334.

[6234 numbered verses & 112 un-numbered verses (Basmalahs) 6234+112 = 6346] Note that 6+3+4+6 =…….19.

Miracle 19 Fact #4. The Basmalah occurs 114 times, despite its conspicuous absence from Sura 9 (it occurs twice in Sura 27) & 114= 19x6.

Miracle 19 Fact #5. From the missing Basmalah of Sura 9 to the extra Basmalah of Sura 27, there are precisely ……………19suras.

Miracle 19 Fact #6. It follows that the total of the sura numbers from 9 to 27 (9+10+11+12+…+26+27) is 342, or ………….19 x 18.

Miracle 19 Fact #7. This total (342) also equals the number of words between the two Basmalahs of Sura 27, and 342 = ……..19 x 18.

Miracle 19 Fact #8. The famous first revelation (96:1-5) consists of …….19words.

Miracle 19 Fact #9. This 19-worded first revelation consists of 76 letters .19 x 4.

Miracle 19 Fact #10. Sura 96, first in the chronological sequence, consists of …. 19verses.

Miracle 19 Fact #11. This first chronological sura is placed atop the last ..19 suras.

Miracle 19 Fact #12. Sura 96 consists of 304 Arabic letters, and 304 equals .19 x 16.

Miracle 19 Fact #13. The last revelation (Sura 110) consists of …………19 words.

Miracle 19 Fact #14. The first verse of the last revelation (110:1) consists of …….. 19letters.

Miracle 19 Fact #15. 14 different Arabic letters, form 14 different sets of “Quranic Initials” (such as A.L.M. of 2:1), and prefix 29 suras. These numbers add up to 14+14+29 = 57 = ……19 x 3.

Miracle 19 Fact #16. The total of the 29 sura numbers where the Quranic Initials occur is 2+3+7+…+50+68 = 822, and 822+14 (14 sets of initials) equals 836, or …………….. 19 x 44.

Miracle 19 Fact #17. Between the first initialed sura (Sura 2) and the last initialed sura (Sura 68) there are 38 un-initialed suras 19 x 2.

Miracle 19 Fact #18. Between the first and last initialed sura there are ….19 sets of alternating “initialed” and “un-initialed” suras.

Miracle 19 Fact #19. The Quran mentions 30 different numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 19, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 99, 100, 200, 300, 1000, 2000, 3000, 5000, 50000, & 100000. The sum of these numbers is 162146, which equals 19x8534.
Miracle 19 Fact #20. By counting the letter “Q” in every “Verse 19” throughout the Quran, the total count comes to 76, 19×4.Here is a summary of the Q-related data

Miracle 19 Fact #21 NuN (Noon) This initial is unique; it occurs in one sura, 68, and the name of the letter is spelled out as three letters — Noon Wow Noon — in the original text and is therefore counted as two N’s. The total count of this letter in the N-initialed sura is 133, 19×7. The fact that “N” is the last Quranic Initial (see Table 1) brings out a number of special observations. For example, the number of verses from the first Quranic Initial (A.L.M. of 2:1) to the last initial (N. of 68:1) is 5263, or 19×277. The word “God” (Allah) occurs 2641 (19×139) times between the first initial and the last initial. Since the total occurrence of the word “God” is 2698, it follows that its occurrence outside the initials “A.L.M.” of 2:1 on one side, and the initial “N” of 68:1 on the other side, is 57, 19×3. Tables 9 to 18 prove that the initial “NuN” must be spelled out to show two N’s.

Miracle 19 Fact # 22. S (Saad) This initial prefixes three suras, 7, 19, and 38, and the total occurrence of the letter “S” (Saad) in these three suras is 152, 19×8 (namely 97, 26 and 29 per Table 2). It is noteworthy that in 7:69, the word “Bastatan” is written in some printings with a “Saad,” instead of “Seen.” This is an erroneous distortion that violates the Quran’s code. By looking at the oldest available copy of the Quran, the Tashkent Copy, it was found that the word “Bastatan” is correctly written with a “Seen” (see photocopy).

Miracle 19 Fact # 23. Historical Note: The momentous discovery that “19” is the Quran’s common denominator became a reality in January 1974, coinciding with Zul-Hijjah 1393 A.H. The Quran was revealed in 13 B.H. (Before Hijrah). This makes the number of years from the revelation of the Quran to the revelation of its miracle 1393 + 13 = 1406 = 19×74. As noted above, the unveiling of the Miracle took place in January 1974. The correlation between 19×74 lunar years and 1974 solar years could not escape notice. This is especially uncanny in view of the fact that “19” is mentioned in Sura 74.

Miracle 19 Fact # 24. Miracle 19 Fact # 23.Y. S. (Ya Seen) These two letters prefix Sura 36. The letter “Y” occurs in this sura 237 times, while the letter “S” (Seen) occurs 48 times. The total of both letters is 285,19×15. It is noteworthy that the letter “Y” is written in the Quran in two forms; one is obvious and the other is subtle. The subtle form of the letter may be confusing to those who are not thoroughly familiar with the Arabic language. A good example is the word “Araany which is mentioned twice in 12:36. The letter “Y” is used twice in this word, the first “Y” is subtle and the second is obvious. Sura 36 does not contain a single “Y” of the subtle type. This is a remarkable phenomenon, and one that does not normally occur in a long sura like Sura 36.
Maashallah. For a change, a decent person converted and not a criminal or an unemployable scourge. Well done Musis.
You know your actually a really disgusting person if you believe this, everybody deserves a second chance and a chance to learn about Islam, no matter their income or intelligence or what they might have done in their past, who are you to judge when your lord (SWT) doesn't even judge?
