Va As-salamu alaykum brothers
I am here because I am very confused about Dhikr/Zikir in Islam. Today I was at a friend and I saw a video that he watched. It was a few of our brothers that was doing Dhikr/Zikir.
The first video was => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWEuj7gt5bk
And the second (Turkish) => https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mING20gzds
The only issue here is, that I never, EVER-EVER... saw something like this before. i have no problems in the beginning but after a while they will do wild things, like running and clapping also, they make weird movement! and that is what is confusing me!
I asked him what this is and he told me "it’s Zikir it’s something that we (Sunni Muslims) often do."
I said to him "there is no way we can do such movement while saying” la illah ila Allah “I highly believe this is haram." Then he said "Noooo, this is common thing everybody does, even we do that." But I just could not believe him...
I asked my other friend, and he said "this is pure Shia, there is no way this is Sunni"
And we argued a lot about this and I am very confused...
Please brothers, can someone please explain me what is going on here? Why are they doing this? Are they Sunni? Or Shia?
