The Qadiri-Rifai Sufi Order (London branch), under the guidance of Shaykh Taner Ansari, is pleased to invite both men and women, regardless of your faith or beliefs to our weekly traditional zikr gathering.

We are a Sufi order whose origins started with two great Saints of early Sufism: Shaykh Abdul Qadir al Geylani and Shaykh Ahmed ar Rifai. Our Tradition is one of inclusiveness and of welcoming.

This tradition has passed down to us through the current Spiritual Guide of the Order: Shaykh Taner Ansari, who now resides in New York and is helping in establishing Sufism in the West.

Come, Come whoever you are, wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. Our's is not a caravan of despair. Come even if you have broken your vows a thousand times, Come, come yet again. (Mevlana Rumi)

Sufism is the spiritual/ mystical path of Islam. During the Zikr (the ceremony of remembrance) we practice some sacred movement accompanied by frame drumming, hymn singing and chanting. In Zikr, each member of the group effaces him or herself in the remembrance of God using the energy of the entire group synergistically for the development of all. We also have a whirling dervish that performs the 'sama'.

Where: Essex Unitarian Church, 112 Palace Gardens Terrace, Notting Hill Gate, W8 4RT

There is a talk and contemplation from 19:15 until 20:00 followed by the group zikr for about one hour.

We welcome everyone who comes in peace. The Zikr is free but a donation to help with the venue hire would be greatly appreciated.

We normally have 20-25 people attending the Zikr ceremony every Monday.
