As we have mentioned, most of the words rendered as “sign” or “miracle” in the translations of the Quran stem from only one word in Arabic: “ayat.” We stated that 19 was a miracle of God. Here, the word “miracle” or “sign” (ayat) related to 19 is used 380 (19×20) times to mean the signs of God (This word means the sign of kingdom in verse 2:248 and it also implies the signs that human beings display in verse 26:128. Since these usages do not mean the signs of God, the count does not include them).
