Every Letter Calculated and Divinely Designed (10:15 – 10:20)

Every Letter Calculated and Divinely Designed

[10:15] When our revelations are recited to them, those who do not expect to meet us say, “Bring a Quran* other than this, or change it!” Say, “I cannot possibly change it on my own. I simply follow what is revealed to me. I fear, if I disobey my Lord, the retribution of an awesome day.”
*10:15 The word “Quran” is mentioned in the Quran 58 times, but since this verse refers to “another Quran,” it must be excluded; “This Quran” is mentioned in the Quran 57 times, 19×3. 
[10:16] Say, “Had GOD willed, I would not have recited it to you, nor would you have known anything about it. I have lived among you a whole life before this (and you have known me as a sane, truthful person). Do you not understand?”
[10:17] Who is more evil than one who fabricates lies about GOD, or rejects His revelations. Certainly, the transgressors never succeed.
[10:18] They worship beside GOD idols that possess no power to harm them or benefit them, and they say, “These are our intercessors at GOD!” Say, “Are you informing GOD of something He does not know in the heavens or the earth?” Be He glorified. He is the Most High; far above needing partners.
[10:19] The people used to be one congregation, then they disputed. If it were not for a predetermined word from your Lord, they would have been judged immediately regarding their disputes. 

10:15 is similar to God using the word Becca instead of Mecca in 3:96

[3:96] The most important shrine established for the people is the one in Becca;* a blessed beacon for all the people.
*3:96 This is an M-initialed sura, and this peculiar spelling of “Mecca” as “Becca” causes the occurrence of “M” to conform to the Quran’s mathematical code. The normal spelling “Mecca” would have increased the frequency of occurrence of “M” (Appendix 1).

Some verses in regards to 10:15

God Erases the Falsehood and Affirms the Truth*

[42:24] Are they saying, “He (Rashad)* has fabricated lies about GOD!”? If GOD willed, He could have sealed your mind, but GOD erases the falsehood and affirms the truth with His words. He is fully aware of the innermost thoughts.

Mathematical Composition of the Quran

[17:88] Say, “If all the humans and all the jinns banded together in order to produce a Quran like this, they can never produce anything like it, no matter how much assistance they lent one another.” [17:89] We have cited for the people in this Quran all kinds of examples, but most people insist upon disbelieving.

Distorting the Word of God

[2:75] Do you expect them to believe as you do, when some of them used to hear the word of GOD, then distort it, with full understanding thereof, and deliberately? 

The Quran: Impossible to Imitate

[11:13] If they say, “He fabricated (the Quran),” tell them, “Then produce ten suras like these, fabricated, and invite whomever you can, other than GOD, if you are truthful.” [11:14] If they fail to meet your challenge, then know that this is revealed with GOD’s knowledge, and that there is no god except He. Will you then submit?

Some verses in regards to 10:19

Disastrous Jealousy

[2:213] The people used to be one community when GOD sent the prophets as bearers of good news, as well as warners. He sent down with them the scripture, bearing the truth, to judge among the people in their disputes. Ironically, those who received the scripture were the ones who rejected any new scripture, despite clear proofs given to them. This is due to jealousy on their part. GOD guides those who believe to the truth that is disputed by all others, in accordance with His will. GOD guides whoever wills in a straight path.* 

[11:110] We have given Moses the scripture, but it was disputed, and if it were not for a predetermined word decreed by your Lord, they would have been judged immediately. They are full of doubt about this, suspicious.

The Original Sin

[16:61] If GOD punished the people for their transgressions, He would have annihilated every creature on earth. But He respites them for a specific, predetermined time. Once their interim ends, they cannot delay it by one hour, nor advance it. 

[10:55] Absolutely, to GOD belongs everything in the heavens and the earth. Absolutely, GOD’s promise is truth, but most of them do not know. [10:56] He controls life and death, and to Him you will be returned.
