The Number 13, Muslims & Islam

The Number 13, Muslims and Islam

*Recent events continue to support the observation that the energy of the number 13 is evident with news reports on Muslims.  As it was mentioned in the comments section, President Barack Obama expressed support of the Mosque at Ground Zero in NYC on Friday, August 13, 2010.Will continue to update.( August 14, 2010)

On September 14, 2010 Sarah Shroud one of the three U.S. hikers held in Iran  for spying was released after spending 13 months in prison. $500,000 bail was paid in order to secure her release.

On November 5, 2009 Major Malik Hassan, an army psychiatrist killed 13 people and wounded 30, at the most populous US military base Fort Hood, Texas. Hassan currently is charged for 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted murder.

Hassan was linked to radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. On April 6, 2010, The New York Times also reported that President Obama had authorized the targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki. Numerically April 6, 2010 translates to: 4+6+2+0+1+0=13. 

Anwar al-Awlaki was also linked to Nigerian, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab the so-called “Christmas bomber”, who attempted to bomb Northwest Airline Flight 253 on December 25, 2009.

 Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was born on December 22, 1986. The numerological translation of this birth date is: 1+2+2+2+1+9+8+6= 31. 31 which is the reverse of 13, would give us the same sum when we combined the two digits, which is 4.

In late April, allegations swirled that Nigerian Senator Ahmed Yerima a 49-year-old senator illegally married an underage 13-year-old girl, a crime punishable by up to five years in jail.  At the time of this writing the matter has not been resolved as far as the author knows.

The appearance of 13 in this news event occurs at least in two ways:

1.)     The age of Ahmed Yerima was given as 49; 49=4+9=13.

2.)     The age of the supposed bride is 13.

The death of Nigerian President Umar Yar’Adua was also steeped in the number 13.

Yar’ Adua a practicing Muslim passed away on May 5, 2010 at the age of 58.

Umar Yar’ Adua was the 13th head of state of Nigeria.

His age at the time of his transition 58=5+8=13.

The date of his passing –May 5, 2010- equals 13: 5+5+2+0+1+0=13.

In New York City, outrage erupted over a plan to build a mosque two blocks away from the 9-11 World Trade Center site. The Daily News on May 6, 2010,  reported that: “The $100 million project, called the Cordoba House, is proposed for the old Burlington Coat Factory building at Park Place and Broadway, just two blocks from the World Trade Center site.”

The article went on to state:

“Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf , who helped found the Cordoba Initiative following the 9/11 attacks, said the project is intended to foster better relations between the West and Muslims.”

 According to their May 6, 2010 posting ,1010 WINS reported:

“The organizations publicly unveiled the preliminary plan for the project, known as the Cordoba House, on Wednesday at a meeting of the finance committee of the local community board, which is composed of influential stakeholders in lower Manhattan. While the agency has no authority over what can be developed at the site, their support is viewed as key to gaining acceptance from residents.”

May 6, 2010 the date of the  10 10 WINS article  posted was on Thursday. Put differently, the article was posted on Thursday, May 6, 2010.  As stated in the above referenced quote, a meeting took place on Wednesday.

Thus we can infer that it is meant this meeting took place on Wednesday, May 5, 2010. This is the same day that Nigeria’s 13th  President, Umar Yar’Adua passed away. The date May 5, 2010= 5+5+2+0+1+0= 13.

In summary, the story about the proposed mosque to be built two blocks away from the 9-11 World Trade Center site has several references to the number 13.

1.) The proposed mosque is slated to be a 13 stories tall.

2.) Wednesday,  May 5, 2010 the organizations behind the project met with Community Board 1 finance committee to gain approval of the project.  May 5, 2010= 5+5+2+0+1+0=13.

Iraq a predominantly Muslim country divided mostly between Shia and Sunni sects of the faith, on Saturday, May 22, 2010 witnessed a news event where the number 13 was  featured.

In Iraq, Llewellyn Kingman Sanchez Werner a 13-year-old piano prodigy from Los Angeles played Gershwin’s “Rhapsody In Blue” to a crowd  of 250 at  Rasheed Hotel  in Baghdad.

Werner played with the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra in Baghdad.

“His father, Llewellyn Werner and his California-based private investment firm have been working in Baghdad alongside the U.S. Department of Defense for three years. The father met the conductor of the Iraqi orchestra and proposed that his son come over to play with them.”
