Putting Love into Circulation


Shaykh Taner & Shaykha Muzeyyen Ansari
Murshid Shaykh Taner & Shaykha Muzeyyen Ansari (Oxford, United Kingdom)

Allah created this entire universe, for love. He wanted to be seen, He wanted to be admired, and He wanted to be loved without force, without compulsion. Allah says in Quran-i-Kerim that there is no compulsion in religion. We cannot compel these things. If He wanted, everybody would believe, but He wants these things to be done voluntarily, on our own. We have to come to the recognition of this and admire God and love God and profess this.

After that comes the neighbourhood. Are you a good neighbour to your neighbours? Do you check them to see if they have food? Are they suffering? Do they need your help? Of course, in the United States it is a little difficult to do this. At least make sure they are not complaining about you. If they are not complaining about you, then you are a good neighbour. You are doing OK.

After you are good to your neighbours and you don’t abuse their rights, then your duty is to your town, then to your nation, then to the whole world and to the human race.

Buddha on a Bicycle
27 Endell Street
Covent Garden, WC2H 9BA

7pm prompt

This will be the last Sufi frame-drum workshop offered by Silk Roads for the year – just in time to raise the temperature for these cold dark days.

Check the video to this Sufi frame-drum workshop where aside from one person none of the participants had ever played the frame-drum before.

We will be learning the instruments with their rhythms and chants as quickly as possibly so that we can practice a Sufi ‘dhikr’ meditation with the daf frame-drums.

Please arrive promptly as the doors close at 7.15pm. (You can ring 07821 182696 to be let in if you’re late)

£10 on the door
