An Analysis of the evidence supportingthe permissibility of Majalis(gatherings) of Dhikr
Answered by Shaykh Abd al-Hafiz Makki
Question:
An analysis of the evidence supporting the permissibility of 
majalis
(gatherings) of 
 zikr 
in the
masajid 
Answer:
 AN ANALYSIS OF THE EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THEPERMISSIBILITY OF
MAJALIS 
(GATHERINGS) OF
 ZIKR
INTHE
MASAJIDSubmitted by Shaykh Ashraf Dockrat 
The subject of this paper, which analyses the permissibility of loud
 Zikr 
gatherings in
Masajid,
is a subject that has become a matter of substantial interest and discussion in the recent past. The visitof 
Mashaikh
(Sufi Shaikhs) and their disciples to this country in the recentyears, particularly the visit of Maulana Shaikh-al-Hadith MuhammadZakariyya Saharanpuri (R), has given a great impetus to the establishmentof 
Majalis-Zikr 
in various
Masajid 
throughout the country. These Sufi Shaikhshave placed great emphasis on the importance and need for the establishmentof 
 Zikr 
gatherings in every Muslim locality and
Masjid 
. The sources of the
Qur’an
and
Sunnah,
as well as the writings of the scholars of Islam, past
1
 
and present, will be studied to understand their position on this issue. As manyof the relevant texts of 
Qur’an
,
 Ahadith
and the practice of 
Sahabah
(RA) andthe
Salaf-as-Saliheen
(pious elders) as possible would be presented on thissubject. Whilst it is conceded that some scholars have raised objections againstthe
Majalis-Zikr,
this paper sets out to review the subject of loud
 ZikrMajalis
(gatherings) in the
Masajid 
in the light of 
Shari’ah

VERSES OF THE HOLY QUR’AN RELATING TO
 ZIKR
Many verses in the
Qur’an
exhort towards the
 Zikr 
of Allah, and theyare
Mutlaq
(unrestricted). They encompass all types and forms of 
 Zikr 
; whether individual or collective, loud or silent, in the
Masjid 
or elsewhere. Some of these verses are quoted below:Verse 1:ورفكت و ىل وركش و رذ ىورذا "So remember Me (with
