All Power Belongs to God (11:31 – 11:37)

All Power Belongs to God

[11:31] “I do not claim that I possess the treasures of GOD, nor do I know the future, nor do I claim to be an angel. Nor do I say to those despised by your eyes that GOD will not bestow any blessings upon them. GOD knows best what is in their innermost thoughts. (If I did this,) I would be a transgressor.”
[11:32] They said, “O Noah, you have argued with us, and kept on arguing. We challenge you to bring the doom you threaten us with, if you are truthful.”
[11:33] He said, “GOD is the One who brings it to you, if He so wills, then you cannot escape.
[11:34] “Even if I advised you, my advice cannot benefit you if it is GOD’s will to send you astray. He is your Lord, and to Him you will be returned.”
[11:35] If they say, “He made up this story,” then say, “If I made it up, then I am responsible for my crime, and I am innocent of any crime you commit.”
[11:36] Noah was inspired: “No more of your people are going to believe, beyond those who already believe. Do not be saddened by their actions.
[11:37] “Build the ark under our watchful eyes, and with our inspiration, and do not implore Me on behalf of those who have transgressed; they are destined to drown.”

Noah (11:25 – 11:30)

Noah

[11:25] We sent Noah to his people, saying, “I come to you as a clear warner.
[11:26] “You shall not worship except GOD. I fear for you the retribution of a painful day.”
[11:27] The leaders who disbelieved among his people said, “We see that you are no more than a human being like us, and we see that the first people to follow you are the worst among us. We see that you do not possess any advantage over us. Indeed, we think you are liars.”
[11:28] He 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?
[11:29] “O my people, I do not ask you for any money; my wage comes only from GOD. I am not dismissing those who believed; they will meet their Lord (and He alone will judge them). I see that you are ignorant people.
[11:30] “O my people, who can support me against GOD, if I dismiss them? Would you not take heed?

[38:62] They will say, “How come we do not see (in Hell) people we used to count among the wicked? [38:63] “We used to ridicule them; we used to turn our eyes away from them.” 

[26:111] They said, “How can we believe with you, when the worst among us have followed you?” [26:112] He said, “How do I know what they did? [26:113] “Their judgment rests only with my Lord, if you could perceive. [26:114] “I will never dismiss the believers. [26:115] “I am no more than a clarifying warner.”

[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.

[10:72] “If you turn away, then I have not asked you for any wage. My wage comes from GOD. I have been commanded to be a submitter.” 

[6:52] And do not dismiss those who implore their Lord day and night, devoting themselves to Him alone. You are not responsible for their reckoning, nor are they responsible for your reckoning. If you dismiss them, you will be a transgressor.

The Believers (11:23 – 11:24)

The Believers

[11:23] As for those who believe and lead a righteous life, and devote themselves to their Lord, they are the dwellers of Paradise; they abide therein forever.
[11:24] The example of these two groups is like the blind and deaf, compared to the seer and hearer. Are they equal? Would you not take heed? 

[8:22] The worst creatures in the sight of GOD are the deaf and dumb, who do not understand.

The Disbelievers (11:20 – 11:22)

The Disbelievers

[11:20] These will never escape, nor will they find any lords or masters to help them against GOD. Retribution will be doubled for them. They have failed to hear, and they have failed to see.
[11:21] These are the ones who lose their souls, and the idols they had fabricated will disown them.
[11:22] There is no doubt that, in the Hereafter, they will be the worst losers.

[8:22] The worst creatures in the sight of GOD are the deaf and dumb, who do not understand.

[22:46] Did they not roam the earth, then use their minds to understand, and use their ears to hear? Indeed, the real blindness is not the blindness of the eyes, but the blindness of the hearts inside the chests.

The Quran’s Mathematical Code (11:17 – 11:19)

The Quran’s Mathematical Code

[11:17] As for those who are given solid proof * from their Lord, reported by a witness from Him, and before it, the book of Moses has set a precedent and a mercy,** they will surely believe. As for those who disbelieve among the various groups, Hell is awaiting them. Do not harbor any doubt; this is the truth from your Lord, but most people disbelieve.
*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.
**11:17 As it turns out, Moses’ book was also mathematically composed, with “19” as the common denominator. See Footnote 46:10 and Appendix 1.

[11:18] Who are more evil than those who fabricate lies about GOD? They will be presented before their Lord, and the witnesses will say, “These are the ones who lied about their Lord. GOD’s condemnation has befallen the transgressors.”
[11:19] They repel from the way of GOD and seek to make it crooked, and they are disbelievers in the Hereafter.

[3:78] Among them are those who twist their tongues to imitate the scripture, that you may think it is from the scripture, when it is not from the scripture, and they claim that it is from GOD, when it is not from GOD. Thus, they utter lies and attribute them to GOD, knowingly.

[47:29] Did those who harbor doubts in their hearts think that GOD will not bring out their evil thoughts?

Rabbi Judah the Pious*

[46:10] Say, “What if it is from GOD and you disbelieved in it? A witness from the Children of Israel has borne witness to a similar phenomenon,* and he has believed, while you have turned arrogant. Surely, GOD does not guide the wicked people.”
*46:10 This witness is Rabbi Judah the Pious (11th Century A.D.), who discovered the same 19-based mathematical code in intact fragments of the scripture (see Appendix 1).

Appendix 1 – One of the Great Miracles

 A Witness From the Children of Israel [46:10]

Proclaim: “What if it is from God, and you disbelieved in it? A witness from the Children of Israel has borne witness to a similar phenomenon, and he has believed, while you have turned too arrogant to believe. God does not guide the wicked.” [ 46:10 ]

The following quotation is taken from STUDIES IN JEWISH MYSTICISM , (Association for Jewish Studies, Cambridge, Mass., Joseph Dan & Frank Talmage, eds., Page 88, 1982). The quotation refers to the work of Rabbi Judah the Pious (12th Century AD):

The people [Jews] in France made it a custom to add [in the morning prayer] the words: “ ‘Ashrei temimei derekh [blessed are those who walk the righteous way],” and our Rabbi, the Pious, of blessed memory, wrote that they were completely and utterly wrong. It is all gross falsehood, because there are only nineteen times that the Holy Name is mentioned [in that portion of the morning prayer]… and similarly you find the word ‘Elohim nineteen times in the pericope of Ve-‘elleh shemot. . . . Similarly, you find that Israel were called “sons” nineteen times, and there are many other examples. All these sets of nineteen are intricately intertwined, and they contain many secrets and esoteric meanings, which are contained in more than eight large volumes. . . Furthermore, in this section there are 152 (19×8) words.

The Quran: Impossible to Imitate (11:13 – 11:16)

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.”*
*11:13 The Quran’s mathematical miracle is inimitable (See Appendix 1).

[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?
[11:15] Those who pursue this worldly life and its material vanities, we will pay them for their works in this life; without the least reduction.
[11:16] It is they who gave up their share in the Hereafter, and, consequently, Hell is their lot. All their works are in vain; everything they have done is nullified.
