Christian worshippers at Greenbelt can learn Islamic worship chants

Aug 7, 2017 by

from Christian Today:

Christian worshippers at this year’s Greenbelt Festival will have the opportunity to learn Islamic worship chants – thanks to an organisation which says its primary aim is to ‘guide seekers of Allah’.

The Ansari Qadiri Rifai Tariqa – which describes itself as ‘an international non-profit spiritual organization… in service to the Divine’ – will be teaching ‘basic universal Sufi chants’ which it says ‘are rhythmic, healing and a unique form of worship’ according to the Greenbelt website. Festival-goers are invited to ‘come, enter in, learn and participate’. The invitation continues: ‘Here is healing’.

The Ansari UK website says its mission is to promote Sufism which is ‘founded on the Holy Quran, the Holy Scriptures and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad and other Prophets (peace be upon them)’. And on the Greenbelt website the organisation says its ‘primary mission’ is ‘to be available to guide seekers of Allah’.

Other Muslim contributors are also featuring at the festival. One is Ahmad Ikhlas, a British born Jamaican convert to Islam, who according to the Greenbelt website ‘has used his heritage and love for the Prophet (pbuh) to generate an expressive unique style of music and poetry’.

Another is Abdalhamid Evans, a British Muslim convert, who will be participating in a discussion entitled ‘Scriptural Reasoning Remixed’ which is described as a ‘a fun and thoughtful conversation around the music and lyrics that move us as spiritual people’.
