This group is for anyone interested in joining a spiritual activity which will bring peace balance and harmony into their life. All participants are encouraged to chant along but are not required to do so. You may just come only to listen and meditate on the sounds. The purpose of Sufi Chanting (Dhikr) Meditation is to polish the mirror of your heart so that it can reflect the heavenly realities human beings have been endowed with. It will also bring awareness, balance, and harmony in your life. The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings are upon him, said, “Everything has a polish, and the polish of our hearts is Dhikr of God”.
Sufi Chanting is based on the use of divine words and phrases which were conveyed to the Prophet Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel or at times directly by God. These words and phrases are repeated to form sound vibrations and rhythms that have the power to heal and elevate the soul. The chanting provides a focus to your mind, whilst releasing the energy encased in the sound, that vibrates through your body. They have a particular effect on the energy or subtle centers in your body.
God says to us in the Quran, “Verily in the Remembrance of God do hearts find peace and contentment.” (13:28) Sufi Chanting meditation is an effective way of stabilizing and freeing the mind, whilst enhancing awareness, concentration, and intelligence. When the sound vibration merges with the thought vibration, there becomes a state of oneness, peace and rest.
