Imam al-Ghazzali on Group Dhikr

In his Hashiya, Ibn `Abidin said about group Dhikr,

“Imam al-Ghazzali compared doing dhikr alone and the dhikr of a group to the adhan of someone alone and the adhan of a group. He said, ‘As the voices of a group of mu’adhdhins reach farther than the voice of a single mu’adhdhin, so the dhikr of a group on one heart has more effect in lifting dense veils than the dhikr of a single person.'”
