God's Encryption Key

The link to the Quran's code and the number 19 has been prophesized in the Quran 1400 years ago.

Sura 74 of the Quran is entitled The Hidden Secret, Al-Muddath-thir ( الـمـدثـر ).The root of this word is د ث ر and has the following derivative meanings: to be hidden in plain sight, to be obfusticated, to be wrapped. Another suitable meaning for this word in modern speak is Encryption, as the etymology of the word encryption is Latin for "hidden," while the utility of encryption is to wrap data such that it can be securely stored and transmitted over an untrusted channel. Encryption allows malicious actors the ability to be able to intercept a message yet unable to access or alter it without detection. Therefore, encryption secures and hides a message in plain sight, thus the translation The Hidden Secret.

Using encryption for transmitting a message allows the recipient of that message to determine that the message was not altered, as well as the ability to validate the original sender of the message.

Sura 74 describes the disbeliever who will evaluate the Quran, measure its findings, and then determine that the book is clever magic and is human-made (74:11-25).

In response to this claim, we are presented with the following rebuttal.

[74:30] Over it is nineteen.

The next verse informs us the purpose of this number.

[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.

And finally, we are presented with the following warning.

[74:32] Absolutely, (I swear) by the moon. [74:33] And the night as it passes. [74:34] And the morning as it shines. [74:35] This is one of the great miracles. [74:36] A warning to the human race.
