Those who don't feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don't drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don't want to change, 

let them sleep. 

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
I you want to improve your mind that way, 

sleep on. 

I've given up on my brain.
I've torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away. 

If you're not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you, 

                               and sleep          ---Mevlana

Zikr                                      Remembrance

Zikr in Germany - with Jose Reyes

Review from Seminar - by Jose Reyes


The practice of zikr means Remembrance--remembering that every breath is a gift from God--and asking forgiveness for every breath taken in forgetfulness.

Zikr Literally means- "Remembering." The religious ceremony, or act of devotion, which is practiced by the various religious orders of Faqirs, or Dervishes.

Zikr is essentially  the remembrance and invocation of God. There are many verses in the Qur'an instructing the practice of Zikr.

"Zikr brings alive the power of the heart."

We are encouraged to purify our hearts and our actions, that everything we do may be a prayer of thankfulness to our Devine Creator.

The Zikr has many forms and practices, it can be a silent still meditation, whirling dances, deep quiet breathing, loud drum beats...It is a sacred moment, a turning toward  the light of God.
The Zikr is a powerful ceremony meant to open our hearts and cleans  the path to reach higher realties.
To remember our  beloved God each and every moment of our lives, with each and every part of us.


(Quran 13:28):

" without doubt in the remembrance (Zikr) of Allah do hearts find tranquility" .

"They are the ones whose hearts rejoice in remembering GOD.        Absolutely, by remembering GOD, the hearts rejoice."
