What is Zikr?
Zikr means remembrance of God. Our practice takes the form of various chants in arabic, while seated in a circle. The zikr typically takes between 30 and 45 mins to perform. When attending there is no compulsion to join in, just sit and listen if you like.
Those who believe, and their hearts find satisfaction in the remembrance of Allah: by remembering Allah truly satisfaction comes to the heart. (Quran 13:28)
The zikr is mixed, i.e. men, women and children are in the same room. There is usually tea and biscuits afterwards (free of course) and a chance to talk, or ask questions if you wish.
I believe in the religion of love, wherever its stages may go, as love is my religion and faith. (Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi qs)
Allah Hu, Allah Hu, Allah Hu, Haqq!
