Significance of the Number 7 ?
« on: November 05, 2016, 08:53:00 PM »
Salam guys,

 I've been wondering, what is the deal with the number 7 in Islam (maybe even other religions?) We have to circulate around the Ka'aba 7 times, the Qur'an describes the 7 heavens and seven earths like it. 

So far all i know is seven heavens was a metaphor for several layers (Like how in arabic we say Ana kont be saba3 noum) It doesn't literally mean i was sleeping in 7. It implies a long time.

But what's the logic behind the 7 times around the ka'aba and the pattern occurrence of 7? Doesn't 7 have a sort of pagan history or am i wrong?

Thank you brothers in advance,
