CAIRO: Some of Egypt's top Islamic and computer scholars have discovered a mathematical code by which the Quran was written.
The discovery was announced at a press conference on Thursday at the Four Seasons Nile Plaza and was attended by Ibrahim Mostafa Kamel, chairman of the research committee in the city of Sirss El Lyanne, in Monufiyah where the codes were discovered and ex- member of parliament and a pioneer in operating the Islamic financial institutions' systems in Egypt, Hanaa Sayed Ahmed, his wife; former Mufti of Egypt Nasr Farid Wassel; Aballah Mabrouk Al Naggar, professor of Comparative Studies in Islamic jurisprudence at Al Azhar University; Mohamed Shahat Al Guindi, member of the Islamic Research Council and the Higher Council of Islamic Affairs in Al Azhar, and Meer Hamza, Ph.D. holder in software engineering from University of Paisley in Scotland.
The discovery, which took about 11 years of research, was approved by the Islamic Research Center at Al Azhar institution after investigations.
The participants said that the codes make the Quran a true miracle, "as no person on earth, not even a computer software is capable of writing even one word abiding with the Quranic mathematical code," said Kamel.
The discovery was based on very complicated mathematical procedures that most of the attendees found hard to understand as they demanded a strong maths background.
Simply, Kamel explained, the new discovery interpreted a mathematical equation formed by fourteen isolated letters, called letters of light, that were mentioned in the Quran separately. It was hitherto not known why they were mentioned.
The researchers got the numerical values of those letters from former sayings of the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH), according to Kamel.
The most significant outcome of this research was the creation of a software program with the codes to detects any falsified Quranic verse to preserving the Holy Book, believed by Muslim to be the word of Allah.
Hamza also indicated that the accomplishment "will be one of the main reasons to make non-Muslims turn to Islam".
lol Alhamdulillah, see how Allah protects his glorious quran majeed glorious beautiful mashaAllah amazing glorious holy book :)
