Miracle of Surah Al-QadarTotal Number of all letters in this surah equals the total number of all the Surahs of the Quran
Total #of letters in this Surah = 114
Total # of Surahs of the Quran= 114
Surah Qadar is the surah where Allah says that the Quran was sent down from Lawh-Mahfooz ( The preserved Tablet) to Baitul 'Izzah which is in the lower heavens, that is the heavens of this world. This descend of the Quran in its entirety occurred in the Night of Qadar ( Night of Power) which is one of the odd nights in the month of Ramadan and it is a very special night full of virtues. In this Surah Allah Almighty informs us about the value of this night and He says this night is better than one thousand months, that is one good deed in this night is better than one’s whole life worship.
Subahanallah, an amazing thing happened, we were listening to an audio Tafseer lecture of this Surah with our family as we hold regular Quran Halaqahs at home everyday. The brother who was doing the Tafseer mentioned about one of the Scholars in the past believed there was a numerical sequence and balance in the letters and words of the Quran. I myself always believe that there is mathematical and numerical coding in the Ayaat of the Quran, so all of a sudden I do not know how it came to my mind I should count all the letters or Haroof of this Surah. As a family we all started counting the letters in the Surah and to the Surprise of everyone the total of all the letters was 114. This is the total number of all the Surahs in the Quran. Each count of every letter stands for one Surah of the Quran which makes the total of 114 Surahs. This means that the whole Quran with all its 114 Surahs was sent down on this night to Baitul 'Izzah in the lower heavens and then it was revealed gradually to our Beloved Prophet in parts.
