  1. Thanks for making such beautiful cds for meditation and relaxation its worthy God bless you and give us power and time to listen and practice them.Its a great effort by you.I want to know about some sufi sheikh in toronto so I can do zikr and baat on him

  2. Salaam,

    May the blessings of the new year invigorate you and bring you back to your best self.

    Now that it is a new year, thought it would be nice to restart this practice in a group. I’ve been hosting a halaqa small group this past fall and thought it would be nice to cover the Islamic Meditation topics in this group. We meet on Wednesday evenings in Washington DC, NW near a metro station.

    If anyone is interested in joining us, let me know.
    Peace & Blessings.

    Salaam.

        1. BTW, My small group will be doing the Islamic Meditation Program but you’ll get a chance to meet everyone and get to know what the other groups are doing.

          The previous groups did some of the following, and we envision that future groups might want to do something similar. (These are not topic discussions):
