I want to touch base with you and let you know about the April gathering at my house:
Event: April 06, 2014 at 1 pm - starts promptly and will end 3:15 pm.
First 90 mins- I will cover what 'Sufism' is all about. There are confusion/misconceptions about this taken as another branch of Islam or some other spiritual practice for new comers as well as among some Muslims.
I would like to take this discussion to then cover Our reading of "He who knows himself knows his lord" - I will recap the pages from the beginning and attempt to cover up to pages 25 and if time permits, i will attempt to open discussion on 'Singularity' covered from pages 25 - 33 on this book.
Next 30mins - I will cover the Tafsir, Juz Amma, Surah Fatiha(p.11 - 26) and Surah Ikhlas(p.34 - 35) as they both tie to the essence of most of sidi's teachings.
Next 15 mins - Will do Zikr of the following:
We will read and practice the three attributes leading to a dua:
Ya Allah, Ya Rahman" IJ AL FI QALBI NURAN (11 times)
Ya Allah, Ya Rahim!, IJ AL FI SAMI NURAN (11 times)
Ya Allah, Ya Malik!, IJ AL FI BASARA NURAN (11 times)
and Our usual Al Wird - 11x time each...please bring your tesbheh(beads) with you.
We will close with sufi dua, inshallah.
I encourage people to at least have a glance over these pages before coming to the class as the class will be intense and I would like everyone to be an active listener and be able to grasp some difficult concepts Sidi discussed in these pages....inshallah.
I am sending this out little earlier so to allow everyone to read! read!....read!!!
I would like Sonia to do the alwird if she is planning on coming, please.
