Why Rituals?

'Fact is, we need them. I realise that at the very core of these rituals is a very selfish purpose - to be constantly reminded of our relationship with God. We perform rituals to express our beliefs, both symbolically and explicitly, and to show the world this is who we are and this is what we believe.

Over time, rituals have evolved, taking on a different form or practice, something more suited to the present day. But they haven't been done away with. They can never be...

Rituals give us a felling of power. They are one of the very few things, perhaps, in our control, and therefore, so important to us.'

- Sumaa Tekur, 'The Power of Rituals'
