There are some works which this is the first time they have been performed.

As most of the works that presented originally compiled as “Zikirler” (means sayings). GOD pointed out the importance of sayings at Quran-I Karim, by saying “Be careful! Hearts can only find peace with mentioning GOD” (Surah Rad:28), and also by saying “while standing, while sitting, while laying down, they mention Allah all the time” (Surah Al-I Imran:191). When the sayings done altogether, they can be called as “sema”, “devran”, or “religious ritual”. The action of saying can be done two ways: first with loud, which is called as “zikr-I cehri”; and second with silence, which is called as “zikr-I hafi”. Sayings in this album has been arranged according to the Saying Methodology and also according to the order of the names.
