Shabbat shalom. I was searching for the meaning of 19 in Judaism. I wanted to know why 19 is so hugely inserted in the structure of the Keren book, Koran, from MuHammad, member of the Quraish tribe. I already knew that the name of MuHammad in my language, "Mahomet", derived from Turkish and cause of polemics as arabs hear "ma humid" : not worth of honors, makes 114 when you inverse the alphabet (Z=1 to A=26). This meant to me that MuHammad was personally an answer to Jesus as there are 114 sentences allegedly said by this man (and no more : the whole makes one page only !), and 114 chapters in the Koran. Now the link with 19 makes me react about Daniel : the fourth beast is supposed to try to change the times and the right, meaning it has revisionism and another calendar than the other populations, and has its own law to replace all Jewish or Noachide laws ! (Speaking about laws, we already have an information by checking the fact that there are 5 prayers and 5 conditions for islam : it looks like Adonai says secretly to Am Israel that if Torah gets neglected, the Horn will strike...). I continue my enquiry. Greetings
