  • Enter from the garden entrance on your right, you will find the studio door on your left, following the steers down.
  • Sufi masters stress dhikr (remembrance of God), for it grounds the belief, knowledge, and faith of the seeker by focusing his or her attention on God. One of the fundamental commands of God is to do dhikr as often as possible until continual awareness of the Divine Presence is established. Through dhikr, Sufi masters train students to purify their hearts and souls.

    To remember God throughout day-to-day life is far more valuable than periodically making a show of remembrance. Dhikr is not a ceremony. It is the very object of life. The person who remembers God finds happiness; the person who forgets finds only desolation. Forgetfulness is the petrifying force that turns a tree to stone. In contrast, through dhikr, the aspirant achieves the mercy of God and the angels, purity of spirit, and adornment of the soul. Progress becomes easy, and the seeker draws near to the Almighty, for God has said, Remember Me and I shall remember you.

    I'm out of town on this Wednesday and the next too. I hope to join you again when I came back. I like the good energy of this group. Thank you to Samer for hosting the group in so good conditions.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
