An Important Point:
 
 
 
Our Lord (Blessed & Exalted) sent His messenger, Muhammad (pbuh) with upstanding legislation and guiding rituals, and among the scientific proof that the law Allah's Messenger (pbuh) came with is from this Creator God is the following:
 
           
 
The Muslim rite of circumambulation around the Holy Ka`bah (Allah's Ancient House)
 
The exemplary Muslim rite of circumambulation around the Holy Ka`bah—the Ancient House—which was prescribed by Allah (Mighty & Majestic) for them as they were chosen for it, is the only act of worship that  is in complete accordance and harmony with the order of the universe that was created and designed by Allah (Glorious & Exalted).
 
     For, Allah (Glorious & Exalted) prescribed for us to circle the Ka`bah seven times in a counterclockwise direction, so that the Ka`bah in on our left.
 
 
 
Let us contemplate and closely examine this congruence and peculiar harmony:
 
The nucleus contained in the atom of which all matter is made:
     Revolving around this nucleus are small, negatively charged particles known as electrons. They revolve in seven energy levels, such that the nucleus has around it seven levels of energy which is the same as the number of circumambulations around the Ka`bah in Tawaaf.[1]
 
     These electrons revolve in a counterclockwise direction, which is the same direction as the circumambulation around the Holy Ka`bah. Glory be to Allah!
 
The earth rotates around its axis in a counterclockwise direction.[2] Glory be to Allah!
At the same time, the earth revolves around the sun in a counterclockwise direction, which is the same direction as the Muslim rite of circumambulation around the Ka`bah: counterclockwise.[3] Glory be to Allah!
Human spermatozoa circle the ovum in a counterclockwise direction, which is the same direction as the circumambulation of the Ka`bah.[4] Glory and praise be to Allah, the Great!
     It is as though moving in a counterclockwise direction as in the rite of circumambulation around the Ka`bah is one of the pillars of glorification.
 
     All other celestial bodies—the sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, the meteors, subatomic particles—all of them move in a counterclockwise direction in their orbits, giving glory to Allah (Glorious & Exalted).[5]
 
     Human spermatozoa circle the zygote in a counterclockwise direction, the zygote rotates on its axis in a counterclockwise direction and the Muslims circumambulate during the rites of pilgrimage around the Ka`bah in a counterclockwise direction. This image—the image of circling in a counterclockwise direction around the nucleus during glorification, as the Muslims circumambulate the Ka`bah, as the earth revolves around the sun, as galaxies revolve around a black hole—reveals to us the harmony of Islamic scripture with the order of the universe, which shows that the Creator of this universe is He Who sent down to us the true religion which uncovers for us the laws of the universe. Indeed, it is Islam.
 
     This sort of congruence and harmony between the law and worship with which the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) came and the laws of the universe cannot be received by a sound mind with anything less than absolute conviction.
 
The One Who prescribed to Muhammad (pbuh) this upstanding law and guiding rituals must necessarily be the Supreme God, Creator of the universe.
The Attributes of this Creator God must necessarily be exactly equivalent to that which Allah's Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh), informed us and precisely as he preached.
     It is commonly known that Allah's Messenger (pbuh) preached the confirmation of the Existence of this Great Creator God (Glorious & Exalted).
 
     He (pbuh) preached the Oneness of this Great Creator God, in accordance with the Saying of the Most High, {Say, "He is Allah, the One."}[Al-Ikhlas 112:1]
 
     The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) taught the glorification of this Creator God and His exaltation above any partner, equal, rival, peer or son, as Allah Almighty says, {So know that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah.}[Muhammad 47: 19] and {"He begets not, nor was He begotten."}[Al-Ikhlas 112: 3]
 
     The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) told us of the Supreme Attributes of this Creator God (Glorious & Sublime), of His Absolute Power, His Comprehensive Knowledge, and His Complete Wisdom. As the Almighty has said, {There is nothing like unto Him}[Al-Shura 42: 11], {"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him."}[Al-Ikhlas 112: 4]
