Zikr is a practice in Islam (primarily through its mystic branch known as Sufism, but even non-Sufi Muslims do it) whereby one recites or chants a particular Name of God, phrase, or verse from the Qur’an many times as a means to access God. It is similar to the practice of Mantras in Hinduism. It is a very beautiful and positive experience. There is something about simply repeating the names of God over and over, that have a very calming and yet energizing effect on the entire body and mind. Baha’is also practice a daily zikr, by repeating the “greatest name” (Allahu Abha) a minimum of 95 times a day. I would like to see gatherings like this take place in a Baha’i context.
