Qur’an (“Koran”) literally means “recitation” and indicates a corpus revealed orally/aurally by the archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad. Thus the fundamental importance assumed over time by the oral transmission of the Qur’an, entrusted to specialists known as hâfız (“preserver”) who knew the texts by heart; as well as the value Sufism places on listening (samâ‘) and the power of the name of Allah, which is recalled and repeated on countless occasions. Just as in the zikr of Milano’s halvetî jerrâhî dervishes.
