The Ark and the Eleventh Commandment

The world’s smallest naqsh or taweez are also known as musalas. These are are composed of nine boxes, arranged 3 x 3. In contrast, the Ark is the largest naqsh ever produced. This naqsh is based on one million squares and spans across 100 feet x 25 feet. Shah Ji worked meticulously to numerically encode the holy Quran in order to produce the Ark. The following is an adapted discussion from the late Shah Ji.

100 x 100

The 100 x 100 naqsh was completed at 289 Slade Lane, Manchester in 1978. However this was prepared using Arabic numerals and printed onto fabric. Answers to questions were sought by placing this naqsh on one’s head. This was the spiritual aspect of the naqsh. It was derived from seven surahs of the Holy Quran. Furqan-e-Hamid was a mathematical miracle. However, the mathematical calculations and numerals within this naqsh were beyond the comprehension of the average person.

The naqsh can be described as having 25 squares horizontally, and 25 squares vertically.

  • Thus 25 x 25 = 625 large squares
  • Each large square is then divided into 16 smaller squares 625 x 16 = 10,000
  • The total numerical value of one line of a large square is 24322
  • The total numerical value of one large square is 97288
  • The total numerical value of one line is 608050
  • The total numerical value of the seven surahs 60805000

Each unique numerical value appears once only, in the entire naqsh. If the sum of the 625 squares is added together from any side, the above figures will always result.

Everyone who viewed the naqsh at the time suggested that it should be in European numerals, so that people of all nationalities could view the mathematics. With the aid of a computer I then typed it in European numerals and stored it on a disc.

My dear friend and nephew, Zahid Shariff, had this version professionally printed and beautifully framed. Everyone was amazed at the naqsh when they saw it. I must state here that during the printing process, a number of copies were made with many adjustments with the font and size of text.

A voice was heard by myself, that highlighted a discrepancy in the mathematics. I then checked the entire naqsh again manually with a calculator and rectified the mistakes. When it had been hung on the wall a nazar, or blessing, was given. This now hangs on the wall, in European numerals without any restrictions or physical barriers. However it still it is still not possible for anyone to copy it. The naqsh has such a mystical aura that it cannot be copied.  That night a voice instructed me, ‘Now make a naqsh of the entire Holy Quran’.

This was a challenge for me. Although reference of the 100 x 100 naqsh can be found in books discussing Hazrat Ali (a.s), noone had ever considered if the calculations for 1,000 x 1,000 naqsh were possible. But the order to produce this new naqsh had been declared.

I took the computer that my friend Dr. Quraishy had bought for this very purpose and returned to Pakistan. The tale of the 1,000 x 1,000 is itself very eventful.

I obtained many different volumes of the Holy Quran, in order to assimilate its correct total numerical value. The number of times that each letter appears in the whole volume, then the correct numerical value of each letter was ascertained.

I began this journey alone and have decided to put on paper the events that occurred during this period. During the making of the 100 x 100 naqsh I nearly lost my grip of normality, due to the very great number of complicated mathematical calculations involved, and the strange events that took place. At one stage I thought about giving up, but my friends encouraged me to continue to the end, because the Holy Quran is not an easy book to study.

Then its name was revealed to me and that the number 11, must be in the middle. This is the story of the 1,000 x 1,000 naqsh.

It has never been visualised prior to this, nor will it ever be produced again.

When it was finally complete, on that very day I saw that the mystical forces were setting up a huge tent by my house and were present in a great number. They were waiting to pay their respects and greet the one who was coming. He came. They gave blessings and were jubilant.

One can see for oneself immediately the vast difference between calculating the 100 x 100 and 1,000 x 1,000. It presented enormous problems. The night I began the calculations for the 1,000 x 1,000 I saw a truck loaded with atomic missiles, and that I had drunk a glass of atomic liquid, which was golden in colour. Then another truck came, and the first lorry was loaded onto the second one. It was then driven away. The driver of the second truck had a long beard, and seemed a spiritual man. I walked on and saw that I had become a diplomat in the embassy from Allah Almighty, although I already possessed a diplomatic passport.

I completed the calculations with the aid of a calculator. If this was stated fully, a complete volume would result. It took a full year just to complete the calculations for this mammoth project. The time taken in typing it into the computer is not included in this period. During the calculation process, spiritual luminescence revealed to me, Three Names of Almighty Allah i.e. three characteristics which were required in order to fully balance the equations. Prior to this no matter how many times I carried out the calculations, they always resulted in a surplus 0.5 which rendered the mathematics void.

When I began entering them onto the computer, a strange thing happened one night. I heard a voice, a red warning light flashed onto the computer screen.


I stared at the computer in fear and stood up. I went and told my wife. She just said a wrong button might have been touched. Then my eldest son Raza Ali Abidi came. I told him what had happened. He did not believe me and said that, ‘The message on the screen must have read differently.’ He added, ‘A man always patrols at night.’

Apart from this, many other strange events took place, during this period.

The treasure that is the Holy of the holiest holy is the incomparable Holy Quran. It is given by kings to kings, as a priceless offering. When it was presented to me, this Visionary gave it away indiscriminately to the masses.

The Ark

That which contains any Commandments from Almighty Allah, is called an Ark. If it is a box, then the box will be called an Ark. If the Commandments are etched onto tablets of any kind, then the tablets are called an Ark. If they are written in book form, such as the Holy Bible, the Holy Torah, or the holiest of all, the Quran, are all termed as Arks. The Ark that is called The Ark of the Covenant, is integrally linked with the prophet Moses (a.s.a) and contains the ten Commandments of Allah Almighty. In order words, the Commandments of Allah Almighty are the Ark, and not the material on which they are written or kept.

When I calculated the 100 x 100, and it was framed and hung on the wall, a voice told me to now make the Ark 1,000 x 1,000, of the whole Quran-e-Majid Furqan-e-Hamid, with the permission of Allah Almighty. Dr. Quraishy and I considered the name The Supreme Commandment, with the benevolence of Allah Almighty’s guidance. A voice commanded that, ‘eleven’ must be in the centre. When deciding upon the title, the whole gathering was unanimous that it should be:


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ



THE ARK 1000 x 1000

The explanation of The Ark is being given so that no one is mistaken into believing that this Ark bears any relation to the Ark of Moses (a.s.a). That is a different Ark.

As commanded, I have taken the numerical values of the entire Quran-e-Majid, converted it all into numerals and, with the aid of mathematics, entered it into 1,000,000 squares.

This ocean of number of numbers would have been nonsensical without the guidance of Almighty Allah. It has never been attempted beforehand and will never be attempted again. I have briefly touched on about its power, and the fact that it is a mathematical miracle.

The definition of a miracle is that, it is right before one’s eyes, and yet one still does not believe it. If it is mentioned to someone, there is still disbelief. If one believes it, then it is not a miracle.

Explanation of numerical values

The numerical value of Wahid (one), is 19. Almighty Allah has made everything in mathematical ratio. All his commandments are mathematical. This is a characteristic of Allah, if it is mathematically encrypted, then it is a command of Allah Almighty, if not then it is man-made.


Look at the mountains carefully. They are in geometrical shapes. The stones that are mined, are also geometrically shaped, such as diamond, amethyst etc.


Look at the trees, some yield fruit in five years and some in three. If this is written about separately it will result in a complete volume on its own. When autumn comes trees shed their leaves in the same season. New growth takes place, in all plants in spring. All is mathematically interdependent.


Look carefully at animals, cats and dogs give birth in three months. Cattle, water-buffalo, deer etc in nine months. Reptiles have a mathematical time spans of their own. Birds such as pigeons, chickens etc, lay eggs that hatch in twenty-one days. Ducks etc in forty-one days. Then the bigger birds such as peacocks etc, have a mathematical time span of their own.

The Holy Quran is mathematical. A numerical value can be attached to each letter. For example, consider the words below. Please note that these letters are denoting phonetics.

QURAN قرآن Q R A N 100 + 200 + 1 + 50 =351
ISLAM إسلام  I S L A M 1 + 60 + 30 + 1 + 40 =132
MUHAMMED مُحَمَّد MU Ha Me D 40 + 8 + 40 + 4 =92
RASUL رَسُول Ra S U L 200 + 60 + 6 + 30 = 296
ALLAH اللّٰهA L L Ah1 + 30 + 30 + 5 =66

937 when separated as digits and then added together also equates to 19. 9+3+7=19

Also consider the following:

BAYTALLAH بَيْت ٱلله B Ye Th A L L Ah   2 + 10 + 400 + 1 + 30 + 30 + 5 = 478

When 4+7+8 are added together it equals 19.

MUHAMMAD BIN ABDULLAH عَبْدُ ٱللّٰه Aa Ba D A L L Ah 70 + 2 + 4 + 1 + 30 + 30 + 5 =142
MUHAMMAD مُحَمَّد MU Ha Me D 40 + 8 + 40 + 4 =92
ALI عَلِيّ  A L Ye 70 + 30 + 10 =110
FATIMA فَاطِمَة  F A T M Ah 80 + 1 + 9 + 40 + 5 =135
HUSSAINحسين Ha Sa Ya N 8 + 60 + 10 + 50 = 128
HASSAN حَسَّان  Ha Sa N 8 + 60 + 50 =118
MAKKAH مَـكَّـةM K Ah40 + 20 + 5 =65

Numerical value of Ibrahim = 7

Numerical value of Abdullah = 7

Numerical value of Panj tan Pak (the holy five) = 7

Since I have written the Eleventh Commandment. My spiritual conscience said, ‘Write about eleven, and what eleven is.’

From the time that the 1,000 x 1,000, was started it has been printed many times. Each time I was told that there was an error. In other words, there was a discrepancy in the mathematical calculation.

Actually, the 1,000 x 1,000 is the Holy Quran. Allah (s.w.t) has taken the responsibility of preserving its sanctity and intactness upon himself. I had only heard of this previously, but now I have seen it with my own eyes. The slightest error was pinpointed in my dream. Many things were also conveyed to me during my daily wazifa, incantation.

The question now arises that there were Ten Commandments initially, so how is the Holy Quran the Eleventh Commandment? The first thing is that there was a command that ‘eleven’ must be included. That command was sufficient for me, but in order to explain it to others I am expounding on it according to my spiritual luminance.

The number 10 can be considered the same as 1, if it is separated into digits and added again (1+0=1), which proclaims The Oneness of Allah (s.w.t). Thus 19 is also 10, which is proclaiming The Oneness of Allah (s.w.t). The numerical value of the Holy Prophet’s name is 92 which can be interpreted as 9+2=11 and then 1+1= 2. In the same way 11 is 2, which is the proclamation of Hazrat Muhammed (p.b.u.h).

Islam was first revealed in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. The numerical value of Makkah is also 2.

Hu, the pronoun used in Allah Hu, is 11 (1+1=2) which is the declaration of The Oneness of Allah Almighty.

As 2 is the addition of 1 +1. It is the proclamation of the Oneness of Allah Almighty.

Now people usually ask questions at this point, and those being, what has the Holy Quran been transposed into numerical values; what benefit and purpose does it serve. Why has a mathematical system been created for it?
