Have you ever noticed that Muslims perform Tawaf anticlockwise around the Holy Kaaba 🕋? Ever wondered what is the science behind it? We are here to explain.
We know that human blood 🩸 flows around the body. However, the most interesting thing about blood circulation is that it circulates in the body in an anticlockwise flow!
When we study atoms ⚛︎, it is revealed to us that they are not stationary. They possess electrons that are prone to move around the nucleus.
Guess what: even electrons rotate anticlockwise around the nucleus. As Muslims perform Tawaf anticlockwise around Kaaba, electrons rotate anticlockwise around the nucleus.
Similarly, all the planets and stars in the solar system are in motion and moving in their orbits in an anticlockwise pattern.
The Sun ☀️
The Sun ☀️ is not still in its place either. Science tells us that Sun rotates around its own orbit in an anticlockwise direction!
The Earth 🌏
The earth 🌏 is not still in its place. It revolves around the sun and also revolves around its axis.
Like the above-mentioned things, the earth rotates around its axis in an anti-clockwise direction! Probably, this is why Muslims have also been instructed to perform Tawaf in an anticlockwise direction.
The Moon 🌙
Science has verified that the planets, the sun, and the moon are not stationary. They have their own orbits and axis to rotate on. The moon also rotates around the Earth in an anticlockwise movement.
Isn’t that amazing? When Muslims offer Tawaf in an anticlockwise direction around the Kaaba and the entire universe is also performing a Tawaf in an anticlockwise direction.
