99 Bridges to God
Odyssey Community School
When the Prophet was asked how one might see the face of God he said: “Know Him by His signs.”
Those signs the Sufis called the Wazaif, the 99 Beautiful Names of God. This weekend is dedicated to an in-depth study of the Wazaif, with the intent of nurturing each participant’s relationship with the Cosmos, the Divine, and him or her very Self. Although this will be a continuation of Himayat's past workshop in July, it will be presented in such a manner to be of great use and accessibility to those coming for the first time.
Presented by Himayat Inayati
