Monday Zikr 20 MARCH 2017



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.
Come, Come whoever you are, wanderer, worshipper, 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)

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 start at 19:15  with 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.
We also have a complimentary dinner for both vegetarians and non-vegetarians after the zikr.
We hope to see you soon.
Please contact : Rita on 07941 653337 ( or Reeyaaz on 07875 569921 ( if you want any information about our Sufi order or Sufism in general.
