Assalam alaikum,
 In his "Shajarat 'l-Kawn", Sidi Muhiyiddin Ibn Arabi, may Allah be Merciful to him, said: "Verily Adam, peace be upon him,when the light of our Master Muhammadu, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, was created and placed in his forehead, the Angels were facing him, sending blessings and peace upon the light of Muhammad, peace be upon him, (as Allah Ta'ala says: 'Verily Allah and His Angels send blessings upon the Prophet...').
 Adam, peace be upon him, could not see it, so he said: 'O Lord, I would love to gaze upon the Light of my son Muhammad, peace be upon him. So transfer it to a limb from among my limbs so that I can see it.' Thus, he transferred it to the index finger of his right hand. He then gazed upon this light shining in his forefinger (misbahta).
 He then lifted it and said: 'I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah'. It is for this reason that the index finger is called forefinger (misbahta), which means the finger of Glorification.
