Word "Human being" - Ingenious arrangement

In this articel I will present some scientific wonders related to human chromosome number and the distribution of the word "Human being" (الإنسن) in the Quran. Humans have 46 chromosomes arranged in 23 pairs. This number was discovered in 1955.  The chromosomes containt the genetic material (d.n.a.) that makes us humans and not some other species. They specify the biological information needed for the development and functioning of the human body. Before proceeding I would like to clarify a distinction between two main types of numbers: Prime numbers: are natural numbers (1,2,3,4,5..) that are divisible only by themselves and one. The first few primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13.. and Composite numbers: are natural numbers (1,2,3,4,5..) that are divisible by numbers other than themselves and one. The first few composite numbers are 4, 6, 8, 9, 10.. Prime numbers and composite numbers are building blocks of the Quran as God gives oath and challenges by them (as in ch. 89). Now to the facts:

» The word "Human being" appears in all forms (definite & indefinite) 65 times in the Holy Quran. Interestingly 65 is the 46th composite number in universe. Humans have 46 chromosomes.

» Chapter 76 of the Holy Quran is named "Human being". This chapter has 31 verses (only one with this number of verses in whole Quran) and it's the 31st chapter from Quran's beginning that contains the word "Human being". Interstingly the 31st composite number in universe is number 46. Moreover, we find that this chapter is the 13th from back (end of Quran) that contains the word "Human being". Please pay attention to the fact that the number 13 is the reversed form of the number 31. Number reversal should not surprise since we have counted from back, a phenomena of same type that can be demonstrated in several places of the Holy Quran. The following table presents the chapters of the Holy Quran that contain the word "Human being":

The chapters of the Holy Quran that contain the word "Human" (الإنسن) arranged in ascending order. 

» The sum of chapters' numbers of the chapters that contain the word "Human being"  up to chapter 76 "Human being" is 961. This number is equal to 31 x 31.

» Pay attention to the fact that the 31st chapter containing the word "Human being" from front is chapter 76 "Human being" (الإنسن) and that the 31st such chapter from back is chapter 23 "The Believers" (المؤمنون). Number 23 is equal to human haploid chromosome number (number of chromosome pairs). The special thing is the fact that there is no any mathematical necessity for this observation. It's the divine infinite intelligence that lies behind such structural phenomena.

» I have mentioned in point 2 that chapter 76 "Human being" is the 31st chapter with the word "Human being" appearing at from the beginning of the Quran. At the same time, we find that the 46th verse containing the word "Human being" in the Holy Quran is the first verse of chapter 76 "Human being".

» The word human appears in definite form 46 times up to and before chapter 76 "Human being". This is equal to human chromosome number. (This word appears only one time in the Quran in indefinite form - in chapter 17 "Children of Israel - Night Journey" verse 13).

» I have been asked one time: what about the number 76 ?! Why is it that chapter "Human being" (الإنسن) is the 76th chapter from Quran's beginning ?! Interestingly, the 31st chapter from chapter number 46 "The Dunes" (الأحقاف) is chapter 76 "Human being" (الإنسن).

» Chapter 46 of the Holy Quran is named "The Dunes" (الأحقاف). This chapter is of  special interest because it has a number equal to human chromosome number as its serial number. The interesting facts are that the number of chapters containing the word "Human being" up to chapter 46 "The Dunes" is 23 chapters. This is equal to the number of human chromosome pairs (called haploid chromosome number). The number of chapters with the word "Human being" appearing in them after chapter 46 "The Dunes" is 19. This number is key miracle number in the Quran. In other words, chapter 46 "The Dunes" is placed between the two key miracle numbers 23 & 19.

» At the same time we find that there are 31 verses containing the word "Human being" up to chapter 46 "The Dunes", and 31 such verses appear after this chapter. Again human chromosome number (46) is the 31st composite number in universe. The interesting thing is that Quran's midpoint verse-wise is somewhere in chapter 26 "The Poets"  (الشعراء)- long distance form chapter 46 "The Dunes".

» The verse where the word "Human bing" appears at in chapter 46 "The Dunes" is numbered 15 (it's the 15th verse in this chapter). Pay attention to that 31 + 15 equals to 46 (Human chromosome number).

» The first part of this verse (as indicated by suggested pause marks) is: "Moreover, we have enjoined on man to shew kindness to his parents." Arabic: "وَوَصَّيْنَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ بِوَ‌ٰلِدَيْهِ إِحْسَـٰنًا". Interestingly, this part which includes the word "Human being" in chapter 46, consists of exactly 23 Arabic letters! Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Here is the whole verse in chapter 46:

"Moreover, we have enjoined on man to shew kindness to his parents. With pain his mother beareth him; with pain she bringeth him forth: and his bearing and his weaning is thirty months; until when he attaineth his strength, and attaineth to forty years, he saith, "O my Lord! stir me up to be grateful for thy favours wherewith thou hast favoured me and my parents, and to do good works which shall please thee: and prosper me in my offspring: for to thee am I turned, and am resigned to thy will" (am a Muslim)."

"وَوَصَّيْنَا ٱلْإِنسَـٰنَ بِوَ‌ٰلِدَيْهِ إِحْسَـٰنًا ۖ حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُۥ كُرْهًۭا وَوَضَعَتْهُ كُرْهًۭا ۖ وَحَمْلُهُۥ وَفِصَـٰلُهُۥ ثَلَـٰثُونَ شَهْرًا ۚ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا بَلَغَ أَشُدَّهُۥ وَبَلَغَ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةًۭ قَالَ رَبِّ أَوْزِعْنِىٓ أَنْ أَشْكُرَ نِعْمَتَكَ ٱلَّتِىٓ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَىَّ وَعَلَىٰ وَ‌ٰلِدَىَّ وَأَنْ أَعْمَلَ صَـٰلِحًۭا تَرْضَىٰهُ وَأَصْلِحْ لِى فِى ذُرِّيَّتِىٓ ۖ إِنِّى تُبْتُ إِلَيْكَ وَإِنِّى مِنَ ٱلْمُسْلِمِينَ"


» Letter Alef ( ا ) is related to numerous numerical phenomena in the Quran. Maybe this is due to the fact that it's the first revealed letter of the Quran. When studying the text we find that there are 19 "Human being" words in chapters initiated by letter Alef and there are 46 "Human being" words in chapters not initiated by letter Alef. Note again here that the split is between the key miracle numbers 46 & 19.

» When studying the 19 "Human being" words we find that 9 such words appear before chapter 31 "Luqman" (لقمان) and that 9 such words after this chapter. Pay attention to that chapter 31 "Luqman" appears right between two 9 "Human being" word sets. The special thing about number 9 is that human haploid chromosome number 23 is the 9th prime number in universe. Note: chapter 31 "Luqman" is initiated by letter Alef and that it has one occurrence of the word "Human being".

» The word "Human being" in chapter 31 "Luqman" is the 23rd occurrence of the word human from the beginning of the Quran. At the same time it's the 43rd occurrence of the word "Human being" from the end of the Quran. Interestingly, the word "Human being" appears in 43 chapters of the Holy Quran.
