“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving. It doesn’t matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.” (Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi)
The Ansari Qadiri Rifai UK Sufi Order welcomes you to join us every Monday to do zikr/meditation together as a group. We start by giving a brief talk about Sufism and Islam in general. You are welcome to ask any question after the talk.
Both men and women are welcome, sitting on a chair in a circle while the zikr starts. The zikr consists of repeating the Holy Names of God and its also followed by some movements, drumming and chanting. We also continue the zikr standing up and do some very slow whirling. At the end we are all invited to say a prayer and together we all pray for humanity.
Dinner is served for both vegetarian and non-vegeterian.
The meditation is free but we welcome any donation towards the renting of the venue.
