The Sufi Show
The musicians are as great as the spinners. The Zils player is dubbed the Bantam Rooster by Morocco, because he just is; with his flirty smile and strutty butt he is causing lots of trouble in the henhouse. Then there is the beautiful drummer with a serious face like a weary king, regal yet immensely tired; not physically tired, but tired of all things except for the beat. The beat sustains him, and causes us all to fall in love with him, follow him into other dimensions. The drum is the king and we just want to serve him by obeying the beat, being loyal subjects to the beat. It is his kingdom of rhythm and here I could live always. The musicians at the hotel who accompany the big dancers when they teach actually smoke in the dance room. It is disgusting because we are exercising hard - really, really hard - and breathing in second hand smoke. Not only is it terribly damaging, it is also incredibly inconsiderate but what can you say? We are in Egypt. We smoke here. Or should I say, the men smoke here
while the women work out. When we dance in clubs here, the musicians smoke and the dancer just puts up with it because it is not her nightclub or her choice. When I perform standup, I have to accept the reality of cigarette smoke sometimes, and even though what I do is fairly physical, I just breathe now and cough later. But in Egypt, only men are supposed to smoke and of course lots of women do, too, but not publicly and certainly not while working out.

102. Chandra And Davids Qawwali Page (Qawali, Quawali, Kawali) - Isalamic Devotional
A page about the sufi devotional musical form, as performed in Pakistan and India today.
Islamic Devotional Music
by David Courtney, Ph.D.
Qawwali is the traditional form of Islamic song found in India and Pakistan. The word qawwali is derived from the Arabic word Qaol which means "axiom" or "dictum". A Qawwal is one who sings qawwali , or the dictums of the prophets and praises of God. The Qawwali is closely linked to the spiritual and artistic life of northern India and Pakistan.
The qawwali is inextricably linked to the Sufi tradition; Sufism is a mystical school of Islamic thought which strives to attain truth and divine love by direct personal experience. In Arabic, this mysticism is known as tasawwuf . The difference between Sufism and mainstream Islam is simple. All Muslims believe that man is on a path to God (tariqah) . However, where the mainstream Muslim believes that it is only possible to reach God after death at the final judgement, the Sufi believes that it is possible to reach God during ones life. To this end there are a number of different techniques and methods. The Koran instructs man to remember God. This remembrance, known as

sufimeester, met beschrijving van diens leven, reizen en gedachtengoed.
Naam: Mirza Hassan, Titel: "Safi Ali Shah" was geboren in Isfahan op de derde dag van de maand shaaban in het jaar 1251H en stierf op de 24 ste dag van de maand zighaadeh in het jaar 1316H. Hij stierf op 65 jarige leeftijd in Tehran.
Zijn vader, Mohammed Bagher Isfahani, was ook bekend als Safi. Hij was een handelaar en in één van zijn reizen, van Isfahan naar Yazd, overleed hij in Yazd (Safi Ali Shah had toen de 20 jarige leeftijd bereikt) en besloot Safi Ali Shah in Yazd zijn studie af te maken. In het jaar 1285H, besloot hij naar Mekkah te reizen via India. In India kwam hij veel derwishes en sufi meesters tegen en daardoor besloot hij zijn boek af te maken, het boek "Zobdat’ol Asrar", die hij in Kerman was begonnen ter ere van zijn Pir, Rahmat Ali Shah. Het boek "Zobdat’ol Asrar" werd gepubliceerd in Bombay. Toen ging hij naar Tehran via Karbala en leefde een tijdje in Tehran. Vanwege de onderlinge uitdagingen tussen de derwishes (maashayekh) van Rahmat Ali Shah ging hij terug naar Heydar Abad en besloot zijn leven daar door te brengen, maar vanwege een paar factoren kon dat niet, dus gingen hij weer terug naar Tehran en overleed hij daar.
Het graf van Safi Ali Shah is op de Safi Ali Shah straat in Tehran en het staat bekend als Safi–Khaneghah. Het was ook zijn eigen huis en na zijn dood heeft zijn enige kind, mevr. Shams’o Zoha, het huis veranderd in een Khaneghah. Elke zondagavond komen daar al zijn leerlingen (morids) en volgelingen bijeen om te bidden en om de Saama uit te voeren.

In the Name of Allah. The Most Beneficient.The Most Merciful SUFI ORDER - TARIQAT GUL NUR JIHANIYYA RADIANT VALLEY ASSOCIATION EDUCATION-DAWAH HISTORY OF MUSIC IN ISLAM CULTURAL INFLUENCES ON ISLAMIC CIVILIZATION In history of civilizations,Islam stands as a pinacle culturally between the Dark Ages and the Renaisance period.Although "Islamic Civilization" conotes a purely sociological implication, in spite of its pristine religious insularity, Islam spread over a quarter of the then known geographic world, gave rise to a specific mode of lifestyle, and became a cynosure for all observers beyond its boundaries. The cause was simple: When the Prophet Mohammad's (swas) revalations were heralded to the world in the seventh century of the Christian era, the "message" could not be confined to the Hijaz or the Arabian peninsula. Within three quarters of a century the banner of Islam"s Prophet migrated eastward to ends of Transoxiana, southward to the banks of the Indus river in India, northward to the shores of the Black Sea in Asia Minor, and westward into Spain onto the Pyrenees. Islam's newly won empire's civilization outshone rest of the world. From Samarkand in Central Asia to Cordova in Spain, famed institutions of learning, the arts, sciences, literature, musical arts, and techinical discoveries, inventions and improvements, brought exciting wonderment to all peoples. Islam's sociological trend was produced with sublime surrender in religion as the basis, and taught universal brotherhood without racial, national, or geographic boundaries.

106. Themes Of The Erotic In Sufi Mysticism
There are a few specific themes that I wish to explore in sufi mysticism. As regards the erotic poetry which is recited in sufi gatherings,
Themes of 'The Erotic' in Sufi Mysticism
by Jonah Winters
  • BIBLIOGRAPHY INTRODUCTION There is, in the human experience, a connection between sexuality and religion. This connection can be found in all religions and in all ages. In the religions of the post-axial age, i.e. from approximately 500 B.C.E. to the present, the sexual half of the equation has been little emphasized, or has been expressed only esoterically. As well, sexuality in religious thought and expression has often been subsumed by the more abstract theme of love. However, though sexuality is often hidden, or even is masked by orthodoxy, it remains a vibrant ingredient of religion. This is most apparent within mysticism. I will not explore all facets of the connection between sexuality and religion, but will focus only on one aesthetic of sexuality in religious expression: the theme of the erotic. To narrow the topic down yet further, I will examine it within one tradition only: the Islamic-Baha'i. In this, part one of the project, I will look briefly at sample instances of the erotic in a few different religions and then will examine in greater depth the erotic in Sufism. This is preparation for part two, which will follow at some later time, where I will undertake a more exhaustive presentation of the theme in the writings of Baha'u'llah.

    108. Sufi Links
    Juan Cole s links to sites with information about sufism and Irfan, forms of Islamic mysticism.
    Sufi and `Irfan Links Sufism is a set of Traditions related to Islamic Mysticism Sufism is the attempt of the individual mystic to achieve union with the divine Beloved, the Absolute from which human beings are separated by their base selves. It typically involves a regimen of at least moderate self-denial, regular prayers, supplications, and the recitation of spiritual formulas and the divine names, and group chanting and textual study. Among the greatest of Sufis were Rabi`a of Baghdad, Junayd, al-Hallaj, Bayazid Bistami, al-Ghazali, Ibn al-`Arabi and Jalalu'd-Din Rumi. `Irfan is a later, especially Iranian and Shi`ite tradition of mysticism that is more individualist and more metaphysically oriented than many of the formal Sufi orders in Sunnism. Great figures here include Mir Damad, Mulla Sadra, Muhsin Fayz Kashani, and Shaykh Ahmad al-Ahsa'i.

    Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Holds Guinness World Record - Maximum number of Qawwali Albums in the whole world The origins of Qawwali music trace back over seven hundred years to the spiritual Samah songs of Persia. Qawwali's devotional themes of peace and love are held to come from God, sung on earth by the Prophets who followed Mohammad.
    Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan the most revered Qawwal came to prominence to western audiences through his collaborations with Eddie Vedder and Tim Robbins (Dead Man Walking soundtrack), Michael Brook, Massive Attack, and Peter Gabriel (Last Temptation of Christ soundtrack) which would result in a number of tours and albums released in North America and Europe.
    After newly signing with American Recordings, Nusrat recorded what would become his final studio recordings. Produced by Rick Rubin, these recordings expand on Nusrat's universal themes of spirituality, peace and love.
    Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan died shortly after the completion of these recordings. His teaching has been passed on to his nephew Rahat, who's apprenticeship began when he was young boy. Quawwali tradition dictates that the teachings be passed down to the eldest son. As Nusrat did not have any male children he began to teach his young nephew Rahat. Rahat would learn very quickly the wonderful and magnificent ways of qawwali. He would also shine in many performances with his uncle on stage. Visit to learn about his upcoming debut on American Recordings.
    The voice and essence that have touched the lives of many across the globe are documented here on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: The Final Studio Recordings. Let the spirit move you.

        Sufi Islam
        The term "Sufi" derives from three Arabic letters sa, wa and fa. There have been many opinions on the reason for its origin from sa wa fa. The most frequently cited in Western dictionnaries suggests the Arabic word "suf" meaning "wool" in the sense of "cloak", referring to the simple cloaks the original Sufis wore. Some initiates are given a specially designed, colored wool vest which is symbolic of the woolen robes of poverty worn by ancient dervishes, and signifies the loving commitment of the dervish to serve humanity. The Sufis use letters of words to express hidden meanings, and so the word could also be understood as "enlightenment". According to some the word is derived from safa which means purity. According to another view it is derived from the Arabic verb safwe which means "those who are selected" - a meaning quoted frequently in Sufi literature.

    Sufi Stories
    told by Idries Shah
    Robert Frager says, in Essential Sufism, about such stories and jokes (p. 162) " This next session can be enjoyed without concern about its deeper meanings. If you wish, for example, you can imagine that these stories ... are not about you. But if it were a teaching session, your task might be to identify yourself in every story, to acknowledge that you too could be as foolish or as lacking in discernment as the characters in these ... tales." [From "Human Nature" April 1978 ] One woman says to another, "Poor Maisie really has suffered for what she believes in."
    "And what DOES she believe in?" asks the other.
    "She believes that you can wear a size six shoe on a size nine foot." A friend of mine once went to see the chief of state of a certain country. When they were walking on the grounds of the presidential place, a large and fierce-looking dog tore the loincloth off a Hindu guru who was also present and, barking loudly, cornered him by a wall. Now this guru had the reputation of being able to tame tigers with a glance, but he obviously had no such way with dogs, and he called out to my friend to do something.
    The visitor said, "A barking dog does not bite."
