What is a Sufi like? Each of the 43,242 breaths he takes in a day moves through his body in the same way his life moves through his body, and each breath is bowing in reverence before God. That is work. Just because a Sufi appears silent, it does not mean he is not doing anything. His breath is doing its dhikr, which is the connection between him and God. It goes on automatically, “dun, dun, dun.” In the same way as the heart continues beating, although we are not aware of it, a Sufi’s breath, his dhikr, is beating “dun, dun, dun, dun” with the connection to God. That is the dhikr. That word goes and beats against Allah with every breath. That is true dhikr, where every breath is bowing and prostrating to Him.
