Both the Torah and the Quran have nearly 80,000 words, I personally was amazed to find that these books, written 2,000 years apart, took a near identical amount of words to convey the same message… that there is no god but God.

I don’t know exactly, but if you were to count from the original Hebrew, the count would be a bit off than from any translation.
