Compass Rose

8-point Compass Rose

Compass rose (also wind rose) is a compass whose directions or points are symbolic of the petals of a rose flower. The different directions of the compass are different people, religions, cultures, tribes, nations, languages, races, etc. The compass rose teaches that the different directions (our differences and diversity) are united in love.

No where is this Love more eloquently spoken about than the Song of Solomon where the Compass Rose was described as the Rose of Sharon. God identified himself with the Compass Rose as follows:

"I am the rose of Sharon" (Song of Solomon 2:1) "KJV"

Rose of Sharon: Compass Rose

I: God

I am the rose of Sharon: God is the Compass Rose.

Identifying God as the Rose of Sharon implies that God is Love symbolised by the compass rose. God is not a specific religion, tribe, race, nation, ideology, civilisation or culture; Rather, God is the Love that binds us all. And the compass rose symbolises that universal love.

Muslims are very accurate in describing that a specific religion  like Islam is a specific direction (qibla) on the compass. The direction (the qibla) of Islam on the compass is Mecca, and the compass box inside the Well of Souls is contains an 8-point compass rose.

The relationship between heaven and the compass is ratified by the Bagua in Chinese Cosmology. The Bagua, though structurally an 8-point compass rose, is the centre of the knowledge of the chaos and harmony defining the nature of God.

In Chinese Cosmology, the 4-point compass, made up of the four cardinal points (North, East, West and South), is called Sixiang.

Sixiang (the four cardinal directions) is the four winds described as the four living creatures surrounding the throne of God. Humanity is divided into four major groups where each group is a creature. A group is called a living creature because it is made alife by the human components.

Ying and Yang constitute the polarity made up of the following two cardinal directions: south pole and north pole. Here human beings are categorised into two conflicting groups such that 'Yin Yang' implies judgement. In 'Yin and Yang' one side is described as good or light and the other side is described as evil or darkness. Both sides are trapped in a conflict between good and evil.

'Yin Yang' is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil described in the Bible.

'Yin Yang' is the ultimate barrier between God and man. It is a place of confusion; the chaos it creates ensures that man never ascends from here to the harmony called God.

Angels are assigned at the level of 'Yin Yang' to execute judgement on humans; the judgement is called a flaming sword.


In reality, humans are the angels executing judgement against themselves. They are the ones accusing each other, and in the confusion, preventing themselves from advancing to harmony (God).

Electricall, Yin and Yang are negative charge and positive charge respectively. Magnetically, Yin and Yang are the south pole and north pole respectively. In magnetism, two like poles repel and two unlike poles attract. Yin and Yang attract or unite to form one humanity since Yin and Yang are two opposite poles. The negative charge and the positive charge are united to form a neutral system called Yinyang.

Neutrality is the non-judgment known as the tree of life. Here, the different directions of the compass point back to the centre of the compass. Since God is the centre, and God is love, all humans are united in Love at neutrality and non-judgment.

Since the rose flower signifies love, the different directions of the compass are different petals or divisions or parts of Love.



Qibla Compass

Qibla compass is a compass design showing clearly that Islam is a direction, and Muslims constitute just one out of the many directions of a compass. Some of the other directions of the compass are Sikhism, Gnosticism, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Atheism, Psychology, Philosophy, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Taoism, Baha'i Faith, Babism, Rastafarianism, etc.

Qibla compass is designed specifically to help Muslims locate the direction of Mecca and pray facing the Kaaba. Some designs have the word "Mecca" inscribed as the most prominent direction on the compass; others have the image of the Kaaba or a Mosque signifying the qibla (Muslim direction) on the compass.
Although Judaism doesn't have a compass to show Jews what direction to face during prayers, the fact that Jews all over the world pray toward the Temple Mount is an evidence that Judaism is a direction and the Temple Mount is the qibla of the Jews.
Every religion is a compass - the centre of the comp…


The Monad (1) is an encycled dot or point O, representing the Alpha and Omega,  constructed using a compass and a pencil. The center of the circle is the origin or source of all things and the circumference of the circle is the end or crown of everything, such that the Monad is the first and the last; the beginning and the end.

Creation of the Cosmos is construction of geometric shapes. The most important part of the process of creation is the construction of the first day and the last day. The two days were constructed simultaneously.

God constructed the first day when he said "let there be light!" (Genesis 1:3) "NIV"

The light that appeared on the first day of creation of the Cosmos is the halo - a ring of light.

The last day is the seventh day when God rested from his work of creation of the harmonious world. "By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work." (Genesis 2:2) 'NIV"…


Creation is, geometrically, construction using mathematical instruments such as protractor, compass, pencil, ruler, etc.

Heaven, the immaterial world, is visible on earth through geometric shapes and patterns, and could be revealed by the study of geometry and trigonometry.

Signs and symbols of worship in various religions are either simple geometric shapes, combinations of two or more geometric shapes or modified geometric structures.

Examples: the cross in Christianity is a net of cube, the kaabK in Islam is a cuboid, Mandala in Hinduism is a circle, and the Hexagram in Judaism is a product of two equilateral triangles.

God is a geometer, which means that he is a teacher and humans are his students. He (God) has been trying to teach humans the orderly geometric patterns defining the exact and accurate nature of heaven.

Question: why would God want humans to study the structure of heaven?

Answer: God wants the same law governing heaven to govern the earth.

The law of heaven is harmo…
