Text: Traditional Islamic Zikr
Music: Aslan Scott Sattler
“La ilaha il Allah Hu, La ilaha il Allah Hu;
La ilaha il Allah Hu, La ilaha il Allah;
“There is nothing in existence that is not of God.
There is no reality but that which is of God;
There is no reality that is separate from the manifestation of God;
There is no reality but God… God… God.”
Before Sifat, manifestation, it is said that the Divine existed as Zat, the unmanifest. We often sing to the Sifat aspect of the Divine that we see, feel and touch with our senses. This Zikr, however, we sing to the Zat, the primal unmanifest presence of the One, with remembrance, gratitude and humility.
