about

‘Dhikr’ is an Arabic word meaning “remembrance”. In Islam, dhikr refers to any practice which leads to greater awareness of God. These practices include repetition of the name of Allah (God), uttering short phrases of praise, controlled breathing, movement, and any everyday activity performed with awareness of God’s presence.

This traditional dhikr chant is based on the form used by the Chisti order. The Chishti order was founded by Abu Ishaq Shami ("the Syrian") who brought Sufism to the town of Chisht, some 95 miles east of Herat in present-day western Afghanistan about 930 C.E. and continues to this day. The Chishti Order is known for its emphasis on love, tolerance, and openness.

It was taught to us by Ustad Khalil Gudaz, who also passed on the words ascribed to Hazrat Bayazid Bistami (804-874 C.E), reciting the titles given to Muhammad, Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus (Peace be upon them all).

lyrics

La illaha illallah There is no God but God
Muhammadu Rasull ullah Muhammad is the Messenger of God
Nuh Naji ullah Noah is the Secret of God
Ibrahim Khalil ullah Abraham is the Friend of God
Musa Qaleem ullah Moses is the One who talked with God
Isa Ruh ullah Jesus is the Spirit/Breath of God
