AUDIOS — The Diwans

Diwans — from Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib

The Arabic word for "remembrance" is dhikr. Along the spiritual path, remembrance relates to that which is in one's innate nature. It is the remembrance of the Essence of Allah, the Almighty, the Source of all manifestations and attributes. That source is programmed into every heart, whether it is aware of it or not. Dhikr is a remedy for the heart's purification, so that what has always been there can be witnessed and experienced. This is the state of pure consciousness, of pure beingness.

In the summer of 1998, Shaykh Fadhlalla visited Sweden. This recording was made at one of his teaching sessions. The songs are from the great Sufi master Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib, whose Diwan is an uplifting, joyful guide for the spiritual traveler's journey to the state of pure consciousness.
