Millennium Discourses

Shaykh Ebrahim Etsko Schuitema

Paperback

9781907839016

 

This is a collection of discourses delivered in and around the time of the turn of the millennium.

 

Within the Darqawi Sufi order, a dars is usually delivered by the shaykh or muqaddam after a session of dhikr when all concerned are in a deep and quiet state.

 

Excerpt: "Our freedom lies in our capability to be still. It is only when we are still that we are in a position to correctly appraise that which Allah is putting in front of us. If you are on the path you must have the capacity to suspend your own agenda and to stop talking to yourself; to silence your inner dialogue. The dhikr delivers us to a place where, for a few moments, this aperture of silence appears. We have a taste of peace."
