Is it permissible to meditate? I want to do it to quite down my mind – I won’t do it identical to the buddhist rituals by chanting and using their posture etc, but I just want to follow the concept and some of their techniques. is it permissible?
There’s no concept of meditation in Islam. Even while praying, we are required to keep our eyes open and pray with full concentration unlike meditation where people close their eyes and meditate in such a way that they are not even aware of their surroundings and go into a trance.
