The hidden secret of nature’s measure created by Allah (S.W.T) can be seen through a sequence of numbers discovered by the Italian mathematician Fibonacci.
This sequence of numbers has a distinctive characteristic, which is that each one number consists of the sum of the two numbers before it.
The sequence begins with 0 and 1, followed by the sum of the first two numbers. So;
0 + 1 = 1
1 + 1 = 2
2 + 1 = 3
3 + 2 = 5
5 + 8 = 13
Therefore, getting the Fibonacci sequence:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584 â€¦
An interesting property of Fibonacci numbers is that when you divide one number in the sequence by the number before it, the ratio obtained is very close to one another , however , this ratio is then permanent after the 13th number in the series. And it is this very ratio, which is called “THE GOLDEN RATIO” or ”THE PHI (Ï†) CONSTANT ”
GOLDEN RATIO = 1.618
233 / 144 = 1.618
377 / 233 = 1.618
610 / 377 = 1.618
987 / 610 = 1.618
GOLDEN RATIO IN ALLAHS (S.W.T) CREATION.
“Soon we will show them Our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth) and in their own soul, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth…”
(Surat Ha Mim, 53)
Islam (The religion of Allah S.W.T) is the only religion, which is completely compatible with scientific facts and provides total clear guidance for humans in all spheres of life.
This Guidance to humanity mentioned in the Holy Quran is appropriate for all societies at all times. Whether in the Stone Age or the Space Age! It Makes no difference, we still have inner emotions and physical wishes, living with one another, interacting, and forming our own systems of living in all aspects of life (i.e. economical, social , political , and financial )
However, Ignorance and poverty are men worst enemies and men let ignorance dwell into their lives slowly corrupting their minds.
Therefore, an absolute need of Guidance from our creator is of great importance in order to live a peaceful happy life.
Allah (S.W.T) says in the Holy Quran:
We have indeed created man in the best of moulds… (Surat Al Alaq, 4)
Although humans are favoured amongst his creation being the best with a sane mind, man are so lost in worldly desires leading to blindness of their eyes and causing a barrier between them and their Creator .
BUT; Most Gracious, Most Merciful (Surat Al Fatiha, 3)
Therefore , in spite of mans ignorance , Allah (S.W.T) is all Gracious and Merciful , and so he provides signs, so that mankind can open their eyes and explore their creator through his creation.
Going back to the Golden ratio hidden in Allah’s (S.W.T) wonderful creation .The creator has always used this very superior unique design number of mathematics in numerous events in the universe.
THE GOLDEN RATIO POINT OF THE EARTH – MECCA, HOLY KAABA.
The first House (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bakka: Full of blessing and of guidance for all kinds of beings (Surat Ale Imran:96)
Figure Position of Mecca on World Map
Mecca is the holiest meeting site for all Muslims around the world. This is because it is in this very place where the House of Allah (S.W.T) is placed. Muslims gather up every year on the Islamic month of Zill Hajj to perform their Islamic Hajj pilgrimage.
The House of Allah (S.W.T) which is called the Holy Ka’aba is a Cube structure first built by Prophet Ibrahim (A.S) and his son. It was then rebuilt by many prophets later onwards.
The fraction of distance between Mecca and North Pole to the distance between Mecca and South Pole is exactly 1.618 which is the golden mean. Moreover, the fraction of the distance between South Pole and Mecca to the distance between both poles is again 1.618.  [Measure of Beauty Created in Nature , By Harun Yahya]
This can also be seeing according to the famous geographic lines (Longitude and Latitude). These imaginary lines are sometimes called the Solstice Lines.
Figure : Longitude and Latitude
The ratio of eastern distance to the western distance of Mecca’s solstice line is again 1.618. The ratio of the distance from Mecca to the solstice line from the west side and perimeter of world at that latitude is also equal to the golden ratio, 1.618. [Measure of Beauty created in Nature , By Harun Yahya]
According to all mapping systems (using the golden ratio compass called Leonardo compass) the Golden Ratio point of the Earth is always within the borders of Mecca proving that Mecca is located on the Golden ratio point of Arabia, AND, the Holy Kaaba is located on the Golden ratio of Mecca.
Further evidence about Mecca (Bakka) being the Golden ratio point of the Earth has being shown from the Holy Quran itself in the following verse;
Figure :Surat Ale Imran: 96
This verse has a total of 47 letters. The word Bakka (Mecca) appears after exactly 29 letters from the beginning of this verse. Thus, dividing 47 / 29 = 1.618 (with approximation).
Using the same phenomena, we can apply the golden ratio in our calculation, taking 47 /1.618 = 29 (the number of letters from the beginning to the verse to the word Bakka)
Isn’t this one of the clues that can direct man to the right path which was ordered by his creator? …
THE HUMAN BODY
The human body is the entire structure of a human organism, and consists of a head, neck, torso, two arms and two legs.  [Wikipedia Definitions]
The human body is so complex yet created by its creator (Allah S.W.T) with utmost perfection.
Verily, all things have We created in proportion and measure. (Surat Al Qamar:49 )
Figure : Golden Ratio in Human Body
THE HUMAN BODY AS A WHOLE
The distance between the navel and the foot / the height of human being
The distance between the finger tip and the elbow / distance between the wrist and the elbow
The distance between the shoulder line and the top of the head / head length
The distance between the navel and the top of the head / the distance between the shoulder line and the top of the head
The distance between the navel and knee / distance between the knee and the end of the foot.
THE HUMAN HAND
The fraction of the middle finger to the little finger.
The fraction of the first two to the full length of the finger gives the golden ratio (with the exception of the thumbs)
The Fibonacci numbers can also be seen in our hands:
3 Sections in each Hand
5 Fingers in each Hand 2,3, 5 AND 8
8 Fingers fit the Fibonacci numbers
THE HUMAN LUNGS
In a study carried out by the American physicist B. J. West and Dr. A. L. Goldberger (during the 19th century) exposed the existence of the golden ratio in the structure of the lung
The ratio of the short bronchus to the long bronchus
THE IDEAL HUMAN FACE
The total width of the two front teeth in the upper jaw / their height
The width of the first tooth from the centre to the second tooth
Length of face / width of face
Distance between the lips and where the eyebrows meet / length of nose
Length of face / distance between tip of jaw and where the eyebrows meet
Length of mouth / width of nose
Width of nose / distance between nostrils
Distance between pupils / distance between eyebrows.
Figure THE DNA
The DNA molecule is the basic unit of a cell, which is the basic unit of any living thing. It programs each and every process of life.
The DNA’s each cycle measures 34 angstroms long by 21 angstroms wide. This measurement brings us back to the Fibonacci numbers: 21 and 34 and its ratio 34/21 is 1.6190476, which is close to the phi, 1.6180339.
Another aspect in the DNA is the proportion of the major groove to the minor groove, which is 21 Angstroms/13 Angstroms, gives you the golden ratio.
In mathematics, a spiral is a curve which emanates from a central point, getting progressively further away as it revolves around the point.  [Wikipedia definitions]
This spiral design is based on the golden ratio, is the most incomparable designs one can find in nature. The curves in the spiral are always the same and the main form never changes no matter their size. No other shape in mathematics has this property.
In order to understand the relation between spiral design and the golden ratio. One can observe it in Plants AND seashells.
Figure 10 Sun FlowerThen let man look at his food, (and how We provide it):
For that We pour forth water in abundance,
And we split the earth in fragments,
And produce therein corn,
And Grapes and nutritious plants,
And Olives and Dates,
And enclosed Gardens, dense with lofty trees,
And fruits and fodder, – (SuratAbasa, 24-31)
Allah’s (S.W.T) flawless creation of this Universe from the microscopic atom to massive galaxies, all has being created with a measure. Plants too display this measure in a very exceptional manner by illustrating the Fibonacci series in the numbers and arrangements of petals, leaves.
Plants that are fashioned in spirals, such as pinecones, pineapples and sunflowers, demonstrate Fibonacci numbers. Many plants produce new branches in pattern and quantity that are based on Fibonacci numbers.
Figure 11 Successive Levels of Branch
This golden ratio has being scientifically investigated in the shells of Mollusks, a group of aquatic creatures, which live at the bottom of the sea.
The mollusks body is hidden inside shell, which is of 2 surfaces, the internal and the external surfaces. The internal surface is smooth this is because the body of the mollusk is inside and the external surface is fluted so as to increase its strength. The spiral structure of the shells gives a sharpened design with just right logarithmic method.
Sir D’Arcy Thompson, a biologist, described this kind of growth as ‘gnomic growth’. He pointed out that, the growth of the seashell was based on widening and extension in line with equal and unchanging magnitude and that the shell continuously grows but the shape remains the same.
Doesn’t all this miraculous signs and evidence prove to us that truly, everything created by the Almighty is done very accurately with a measure?
â€¦ Everything has its measure with Him. (Suratar-Ra’d, 8)
To sum up, everything created by Allah (S.W.T) is done with perfect measure. If this measure was either a unit less or a unit more, this universe would not be as perfect as it is.
Only Allah (S.W.T) knows the secret behind his creation which is beyond human beings knowledge however, Allah (S.W.T) has left us signs and clues in the Holy Quran so that we may be able to recognize Allah’s (S.W.T) power, follow his laws, appreciate his bounties, feel his presence and realize the reason behind our existence in this world.
And never an Ayah (sign) comes to them from the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) of their Lord, but that they have been turning away from it (Surat An’am:6)
In spite of all the signs, there are men who reject faith, and believe that nature came by coincidence. According to scientists, all these proofs and little tiny details in Allah’s (S.W.T) creation have a probability of ‘zero coincidence ‘therefore there must be an authority far more knowledgeable to design this universe which is non other then Allah (S.W.T)
It is He Who sendeth down rain from the skies: with it We produce vegetation of all kinds: from some We produce green (crops), out of which We produce grain, heaped up (at harvest); out of the date-palm and its sheaths (or spathes) (come) clusters of dates hanging low and near: and (then there are) gardens of grapes, and olives, and pomegranates, each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety): when they begin to bear fruit, feast your eyes with the fruit and the ripeness thereof. Behold! in these things there are signs for people who believe.
