19 is a prime number that has interesting features, as we have mentioned above. The mathematical value of the word “Wahid,” which expresses God’s unity, is 19. How are the functions of 19 and the importance of 19 stressed in the Quran? The 74th sura “The Hidden” draws attention to the number 19:
24- And said, “This is nothing but the magic of old.”
(74-The Hidden, 24)
25- This is nothing but the word of a human.
(74-The Hidden, 25)
26- Soon I will cast him into Saqar
(74-The Hidden, 26)
27- Do you know what Saqar is?
(74-The Hidden, 27)
28- It leaves nothing nor does it spare
(74-The Hidden, 28)
29- It is tablets for people
(74-The Hidden, 29)
30- Over it is 19
(74-The Hidden, 30)
31- We appointed angels to be guardians of fire. And We assigned their number as a trial for disbelievers. So that those who were given the Book may arrive at certainty, and the believers may increase in faith, and to remove all traces of doubt from the hearts of the people of the Book and believers. And that those in whose hearts is a disease and the disbelievers may say, “What does God mean by this allegory?” God thus sends astray whomever He wills and guides whomever He wills. None knows the armies of your Lord, except He. This is a reminder for the people.
(74-The Hidden, 31)
32- Absolutely, by the moon
(74-The Hidden, 32)
33- And by the night as it passes
(74-The Hidden, 33)
34- And the morning as it shines
(74-The Hidden, 34)
35- This is one of the greatest
(74-The Hidden, 35)
36- A warning to mankind
(74-The Hidden, 36)
37- For those among you who wish to advance or regress.
(74-The Hidden, 37)
