Without the help and guidance of Bediuzzaman Said Nursi the miraculous nature of tawâfuq may have remained unknown and, since previously such works had not been highlighted, common people would have been unaware of them.
Tawâfuq is when two things happen in a precise and orderly fashion without intent. Tawâfuq is especially understood to be when we know there is no possibility of coincidence or chance in an event and when we understand that the occurrence must have been ordained by Allah for an important cause.
The miraculous nature of tawâfuq in the Qur’an is displayed when the printed occurrences of the word Allah (Lafzullah), mentioned 2806 times, miraculously correspond to each other. With the exception of all but a few of the 604 pages of the Qur’an containing the word Allah such correspondence is evident.
In every page the occurrence of the word Allah corresponds to another, on either two pages overlapping each other face to face, by corresponding in a row top to bottom or by directly corresponding on the front and back of pages. The same tawâfuq may be seen with other words such as Rab (Lord), Qur’an and Rasul (Messenger) and in many other forms.
The miraculous nature of tawâfuq in the Qur’an was first revealed by Bediuzzaman Said Nursi one century ago. Now, in this era of materialistic and irreligious philosophy, at a time when people only believe in what they can see, that is to say whose minds have been limited by their sight, the fascinating tawâfuq miracle of the Quran is surely meaningful and is totally a blessing of Allah.
There is undeniable wisdom in the miracle of tawâfuq being discovered nearly 1350 years after the Qur’an was compiled. This being that if the tawâfuq of the Qur`an had been spotted earlier, during the time of the life of Messenger Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) and His Companions (Sahabas), His enemies of that time and of later generations may have accused Him and His Companions, saying that they deliberately aligned the words. However the tawâfuq, being discovered at a time when people are saying, “I only believe in what I can see”, is enough to destroy such denial.
In this respect Bediuzzaman says, “All Praise be to Allah that a Qur’an has been inscribed which openly portrays one of the six miracles that can be spotted by the naked eye. This is the Qur’an that was inscribed by Hafiz Osman. Other than a few rare instances Allah’s names are repeated 2806 times with the tawâfuq miracle. The pages or sentences were never amended. We have only regulated it. From that regulation a marvelous tawâfuq has prevailed. Some “ahl-al kalb”figures (people who approach reality with their hearts) have seen the Qur’an that we inscribed; they have all agreed it was close to the Qur’an in Lawh-al Mahfûz (Preserved Tablet).
