Paradise Gardens.

Bismi'llah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim...for the sake of Prophet Muhammad saws and Sheikh Nazim may Allah protect his secret.

The Prophet said, "When you pass by the Gardens of Paradise rejoice."When his companions asked the location of those gardens, he replied, "They are the circles of dhikr."-The Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported by Anas bin Malik

Dhikr literally means remembrance of Allah. It normally takes the form of repetitions (often chanted, sometimes silent) of the names of Allah or verses & short suras (chapters) from the Koran or blessings upon the Prophet saws.
In the Koran it speaks about "those who remember Allah standing sitting and lying on their sides." indicating that it is a well regarded thing to rermember Allah at all times and in all situations.

It's so gratifying when someone appreciates a thing that one loves.
