Music in Sufism

The Sufi Center Chicago holds an afternoon tea so that visitors and newcomers can learn more about Sufism in a relaxed, comfortable setting. These teas are from 4:00 to 5:00 pm and are free and open to the public.

In the Sufi tradition music has played he role of a watchdog that signals us to return to the right track, to the present moment, and to help us focus again and again on the breath and the divine.

Sufi Poetry is an expression of human love for the divine, and when it is put to music it can create in us the experience of longing and love for God, albeit for a very brief moment. Music is there to encourage us on the path of love. In this respect, music is also a reminder that observance of silence and the breath is only the beginning of the path. The aim is to reach the divine through love.

Like grapes, we have always

accompanied the vat.

From the view of the world,

we have disappeared.

For years, we boiled from

the fire of love.

Until we became that wine

which intoxicates the world.

    I'm going to try to attend since I'm getting over a cold. This would be my first meet up and I'll do my best to be there with nephew and husband. Do you allow a well behaved child.

    Thanks,

    Gloria
