QXP VI
15:9 We have sent down this Reminder, and We will guard it. [6:115]

Any assumption from Rashad Khalifa about the last two verses added in Surah Tauba to fit his agenda, or the angel made a mistake by revealing the Qur’an to the Exalted Messenger instead of Hazrat Ali [RA], or the goat eating some verses about stoning. fairy tales.com !

19. Sacred 19 of the Bahá'í

“The community has a special affinity to the number 19. They have a 19-day month, a 19-month year, an annual 19-day fast, and a communal festival every 19 days with prayers and consultations. This is seemingly based on the numerical value of "Wahid" – the One – though older associations exist, for 19 is the sum of the 12 signs of the zodiac together with the seven planets, reinforced by the 19-year-long Metonic cycle before the solar and lunar calendars exactly repeat themselves.”

“Mathematicians equate the number one with the idea of unity. It means that all other numbers return to one; the number one forms the foundation of all numbers. In the spiritual sense, oneness unites all things (infinity) by this relationship. The word “one” and the word “unity” have the same etymological root in Latin, unum. Similarly, the word for “one” and “unity” in Arabic is Wáḥid (واحد). Because the numerical value of this Arabic word (the abjad value) is 19, the Bab elevated this number to sacred meaning, representative of the idea of oneness and unity. From that point of view, the number 19 symbolizes one thing and all things at the same time, functioning as a nexus between these extremes.”
