# Sura 74

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.

In addition to all this,

The verse 74:31 has 57 words = 19 x 3

The first 19 verses of Sura 74 contain 57 words = 19×3 words

The number of words from the beginning of Sura 74:1 to 74:30 where it mentions “nineteen” = 19 x5 = 95 words

The number of letters from the beginning of Sura 74 to the word “nineteen” in 74:30 = 361 = 19 x 19 letters

From 74:1-8 there are exactly 19 [19×1] words

From 74:1-19 there are exactly 57 [19×3] words

From 74:1-30 there are exactly 95 [19×5] words

From 74:1-31 there are exactly 152 [19×8] words

From 74:1-47 there are exactly 209 [19×11] words

The word قَدَّرَ used in 74:18-20 has a special connection with the mathematical miracle, which is detailed in the following article.
