Al-Mumin – Support
When you are guided to this pathway, take the opportunity to feel the support of the universe just as surely as you feel the earth under your feet.
-The Sufi Book of Life
The sacred sound of the Arabic language brings the actual essence of what is named into being. The sound vibration is the underpinning of the Sacred Geometry.
As you chant Moo Min you will prepare your self for embodying a supportive, peaceful state and also move one towards that station in life.

From the root â-m-n which has the following classical Arabic connotations:
to be secure, safe, free from fear
, quiet, tranquil
to grant protection, safeguard to be trusted, trustworthy to believe in
This name is used in the Qur’ân. For example, see 59:23
The word îmân, often simply translated simply as faith or belief, comes from this same â-m-n root, and could well be translated as has been granted peace and security.
The word âmîn, often translated simply as amen, also comes from this same
â-m-n root, and could be translated as in this we trust or in this we are free from fear.
The root â-m-n root is also the original source of the name al-Muhaymin (the protector).

These qualities are a two-way street in that one can feed their own Heart and also Be the quality for others. In these chaotic times the quality of Al Mumin will see you through.
