THE SUFI TRADITION IN TORONTO

By: Siddiq Osman Noormuhammad

The Zikr by the Zakireen

The Zakireen of Toronto hold a joint zikr session every year. This is held a week before the blessed month of Ramadan to welcome it. The zikr groups that have participated are:

All the zikr groups participate as equals but one of the groups is chosen to take the lead in organising it each year. The first such session was held in 1415 A.H/1995 C.E. The zikr groups that have taken the lead so far in organising it are:

The program starts with the recitation of Surah Yaa Seen Shareef. Each zikr group is then introduced and recites zikr for about 20 minutes. The program is brought to a close with Taazim-e Qiyaam (standing ovation) for the beloved of Allah, Muhammad Mustafa, Sallallahu 'alaihi wa Sallam. The day-long program is spiritual nourishment to rejuvenate the ruh (spirit) so that it is ready to receive the barakah (spiritual blessings) of the month of Ramadan.
