99 Names of God – Sufi Cards (Meditation Cards & Book)
- The Names of God are expressions of His uniqueness.
- Recitation of the Names evokes the meaning of that name and is the manifestation of it.
- In Sufism, the remembrance of God is evoked by Dhikr – the recitation of the Divine Names.
- Dhikr may be silent, chanted, recited individually or in a group.
- The Master or Sheikh may assign the student an exact number of repetitions, suitable for him or her at that moment.
- Useful at that point for the student’s growth and inner evolution.
- The cards illustrate the 99 Beautiful Names of God.
- ‘Looking at them and selecting one whilst centering on one’s heart’ allows us to connect ourselves with that precise expression of the Divine written on the card.
- Connecting with that vibration enables us to express it in our daily life.
- The Dhikr is said to cleanse the heart.
