Bismillah ar Rahman ar Rahim. In the name of Allah the Compassionate, the Merciful. Everything begins and ends with Allah. Shaykh Kevin Germain al Ansari and I, Dianne Germain al Ansari are sufi students of The Qadiri Rifai Ansari Tariqa. Shaykh Taner Ansari is the Pir of this order and our beloved guide on this path of sufism. Shaykh Taner’s wife, Shaykha Muzeyyen Ansari also inspires with heartfelt wisdom.

We hold a Ceremonial Sufi Zikr the 2nd Saturday of each month at  Indigo Yoga; 45 Main Street in Florence, MA at 7:30 pm. All are welcome to join and no experience is necessary. The Qadiri Rifai Ansari Tariqa’s zikr is rich in traditional recitation of Allah’s beautiful names combined with drumming and Sufi Illahis (love songs).

    I am a Hindu by birth but I was born in Sharjah, surrounded by lovely people of the Muslim faith. I used to hear prayers from the nearby mosque and I have always wanted to know more, learn more about Allah but as a child, my classmates were not cooperative..they wouldnt even let me touch the Quran they carried for Islamic studies. Today I was searching the meaning of ‘ya wadood’ as I heard about it in a program on TV where a scholar was telling people what to recite for their specific problems. I went through most of your posts and saw that the latest was written quite a long while ago. Please continue writing for the benefit of people like me. Thankyou so much.
