In Numerology (quantity science) “7” signifies “Holiness” and “closeness with God.” The number 7 occurs in much of the symbolism of Christianity, and Judaism. From the Seven Days of Creation (Genesis 1:1-31 by way of Genesis 2:1-3) to the Scroll sealed with Seven Seals (Revelation five:1) the number 7 is really prominent in the Holy Scriptures. All the Holy Scriptures have been written in accordance with a Number 7 Code.
The Number Seven is very important in the religion of Islam. The Holy Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad in the course of the 7th Century. Surah al Fatihah (“The Opening”), the Qur’an’s first chapter, consists of seven verses. The Qur’an mentions the Seven Heavens in Surah 65:12. In Surah 15:44, there are Seven Gates to Hell. Prophet Muhammad ascended to the Seventh Heaven (from the Dome of the Rock in Yerushalem). During the Hajj, Muslims circumambulate the Kaabah seven instances in the ritual identified as Tawaf.
The Muslim Kalimah Shahada (the basic testimony of faith in Islam) also adheres to a Holy Quantity 7 Code. The Muslim publicly testifies that:
La ilaha ill Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah.
There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.
The Kalimah Shahada is the Muslim version of the Shema’:
Shema’ Yisrael: Yahweh Aloheinu, Yahweh Ahad!
Hear O’Israel: Yahweh Our AL is A single! (Deuteronomy 6:four)
The Kalimah Shahadah consists of seven words with 28 (7×4) ‘Arabic letters. When spoken, the Kalimah Shahadah has specifically 14 (7×2) syllables. The total numerical value of the Kalimah Shahadah is 749 (7×107).
The composition of the Kalimah Shahada and the Holy Qur’an was Directed and Ordained by a Higher Intelligence. The Holy Quantity 7 Code of the Kalimah Shahada and the Holy Qur’an is God’s Seal, Signature, and Stamp of Authenticity.
Another typical denominator of the Holy Scriptures (the ‘Arabic Qur’an, the Hebrew Torah, and the Greek New Testament) is that they all commence with the letter “B.” The Holy Qur’an begins with, “BISMILLAH,” or, “In the Name of God.” “BISMILLAH” is a sacred alchemical formula which consecrates the most mundane act and transmutes it into a Divine Act of Worship. The gematria, or numerical value of “BISMILLAH” is 168 (7×24). This signifies that we ought to be ever cognizant to place God at the forefront of our system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When we commence all our affairs with the kavanah (intention) of pleasing God and undertaking His Will, then good results in all our undertakings is assured! The correct Muslim is in total and full submission to God and starts all his actions with “BISMILLAH.”
“BISMILLAH” starts with the ‘Arabic letter, “BA.” BA is equivalent to the letter BEYT in the Hebrew Aleph-Beyt. “BEYT” means “home.” BA represents the Door of the Residence, and signifies the beginning of Initiation into the Mysteries of God.
