SUFISM IS A TRAINING PROGRAM :
Part 1 of 4: ZIKR OF ALLAH
Allah says in the Qur’an-i-Karim (17:13), “And for each person, We have tied what they are supposed to do on their neck as a sign for them.”
The Sufis believe that this is zikr. Our bodies are doing zikr all the time, whether we are aware of this or not. Your heart is saying “Allah, Allah” with every beat, and your lungs are saying “Hu, Hu” with every breath. Everything in the universe is doing zikr all the time as well, whether we know this or not. In this way, Allah showed us the path to the target. The target is Allah. Then, Allah created distractions in order to separate the sincere from the insincere and to test the true believers to see who would keep their attention on Allah and who would become distracted.
