Keys to Sacred Science: Geometry and Numerology in Islam
Suleiman Sami Joukhadar
Paperback, 144 pages
Numerology plays a key role in interpreting sacred texts, as in the Arabic language each letter has a numerical equivalent, according to the Abjad system. The author uses this approach to explain various Quranic passages, and sacred words and phrases, demonstrating meanings which lie hidden beneath the surface. He then applies the science of numerology to elucidate the form of the canonical prayer, one of the pillars of Islam. Making use of traditional tools of sacred science, such as the ‘magic square’ or Wafaq, and the Tetraktys, he provides remarkable demonstrations of the geometric and numerological structure manifested in the sacred rites. He shows how each movement and detail related to the prayer is designed with perfect precision.
