Guidance from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala

Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has created the entire universe with total Absence of contradiction.  This is a fact.

If we have to look at the way in which Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala  has created the universe,  we will notice that the preferred rotational direction which Allah
Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has chosen for the planets is Anti-clockwise.  Why Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala has chosen the Anti-clockwise direction for the planets we do not know.  What we do know is that there is a purpose for which this direction was chosen, for the Holy Qur'an categorically rules out any scenario of creation, which is haphazard, accidental or disorderly.

Guidance from our Holy Prophet Mohammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)

According to the teachings and conduct of our Holy Prophet Mohammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) we have learnt that direction plays a specialised role in a Muslim’s life.  Our Holy Prophet Mohammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) instructed us all on how we should conduct ourselves in our everyday social and religious practices.   Furthermore our learned elders were keenly instructive on ways in which to take motion in our daily lives. .  We know that in most circumstances we are instructed to start from the right whenever we do something, which is good.

The following are just a few of the these practices relating to choice of side to begin:

Perform wudooh (ablution) with the right hand first.

Put on our shoes with the right foot first.

Make Azan into the newborn child starting from in the right ear first.

Enter the mosque with the right foot first.

Even the Holy Quran we read from the right

The following are just a few of the practices relating to directional movement:

Perform Tawaf around the Holy Ka‘bah in an Anti-Clockwise direction.

If we stir anything to stir in an Anti-Clockwise direction.

When sharing something in a group, to start with the person on your right(preferred)

then move in and Anti-Clockwise direction around the group. (Refer to Hadith from Sahih Muslim)

All these signs from
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and the teachings and traditions of our Holy Prophet Mohammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) were not accidental but were specific down to the finest detail advocating the direction of choice for the Muslim Ummah, which is if you think about it, is 'Anti-Clockwise'.

Whilst reflecting on this authentic hadith "The acts most pleasing to Allah are those which are done regularly, even if they amount to little." [Bukhari, Muslim]. We make dua that this timepiece will assist the ummah in the remembrance of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.

We can only assume at this time that the entire universe is in unified praise of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala given the fact that it is Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala who has created the universe and also the fact that our Holy Prophet Mohammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) preferred this sided motion. To illustrate the unified motion of the universe:

Earth and Moon in orbit

The earth rotates on its axis anti-clockwise

The moon created to rotate anti-clockwise and rotate the earth anti-clockwise

All the planets in the universe (including Earth) were created to rotate anti-clockwise

Based on these facts we can clearly see that the anti-clockwise movement is the preferred choice by Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala when choosing circular movement. This preference to Anti-Clockwise motion is further illustrated by the teachings and traditions of our Holy Prophet Mohammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
