Turning Faces Left To Right, Making Dhikr?

Have you ever wondered why is it that some people while making zikr turn their faces from right to left?

Hazrat Ali RadiAllahu An , asked our Master the Prophet SallAllahu Alai Wassalam, to teach him the easiest, the most valuable, the most immediate way to salvation.

Hazrat Jibraeel Alaihis Salaam brought the answer from the divine source. He came and taught our Master to say,

"La ilaha" - there is no God, no other reality -
while turning his blessed face to the right;

and to say

"illAllah" - but God alone, Allah alone, the Supreme Reality alone  while turning his face to his left, towards his blessed pure heart.

Our Master, the Prophet repeated this 3 times; and then taught it to Hazrat Ali, making him repeat it 3 times. Then he taught the Divine Witnessing of Grand Unity, Oneness (Tawhid) in the same manner to his companions. Hazrat Ali was the first to ask for it and was the first to be taught.

- From the book

The Secret of Secrets (Sirr al-Asrar) by Hadrat 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani

"Sufiya Iqraam have mentioned regarding this, when one turns from right to left and ends with "illAllah" at his heart it means

Right to left is the co ordonites of the world (East and West), so by us making zikr this way we are making our hearts acknowledge " There is no God but Allah" in the East to the West (Meaning the hole world: to get to to West from East you have to pass North and from West to East you have to pass South)

Another meaning would be as the action you make from right to left is the action of Negative answer (No), likewise you making your heart acknowledge the fact that there IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH..."
