Ten Principles of our Sufi Order

We are a Sufi Islamic Community open to all seekers and devotees.

We belong to a mystical lineage transmitted heart to heart and centered around a living guide.

Our spiritual mode is that of joy and praise, while our inner gaze is focused on the seamless unity of Reality.

Our core is the living Source of Being whose essence is love and absolute mercy.

We follow the universal sacred path revealed through the Prophet Muhammad, may he be showered in sublime peace, which is the essential light of guidance revealed to all the Prophets throughout time.

We envision all sacred traditions as a single field of divine revelation and we resonate in universal friendship with their communities.

We follow the universal wisdom of the Holy Qur’an as interpreted by the great mystic saints of Sufism, and we are enriched by the wisdom teachings and practices of other sacred traditions.

We emphasize companionship rather than hierarchy. We practice spiritual parity and gender equality. We seek to build a community based on the divine teaching of “those who love each other for My sake”.

We rely on the heart to heart transmission of light, love and knowledge to nourish and further each person in their spiritual maturing.

We recognize the arising of the New Humanity of spiritual consciousness.

In the Blessed Name of Allah, Infinite Mercy and Boundless Love Ya Imam Huseyn! Ya Imam Huseyn! Ya Imam Huseyn! The sun of Love shines from your great heart as you stand within the community of humanity. It is Love that undertakes the journey into the desert of unknowing and the desert of longing to reveal Itself and to know Itself. Love allows Itself to be captured by the forces of tyranny, arrogance and separation to teach humanity that they are just chimeras and shadows. Love tastes the blood of suffering and transforms it into praise and gratitude. Love meets hatred and ignorance and answers with prayer and intercession. Love extinguishes the fires of those hells with its tears falling from the Essence. Loves' tears contain the Ocean of Mercy and all the Holy Books. Love unveils Itself in the center of the Center. Love reaches beyond the Beyond. Love cannot be contained by any boundary or limitation, any law, any custom, any form, any history, or any projection of future. Now in the desert, in the divine human form, Love receives the crown of victory. Ya Huseyn! O martyrs of Karbala! Humanity, jinn and angels are weeping around you O Huseyn, O martyrs! Humanity, jinn and angels are rejoicing around you O Huseyn, O martyrs! Ya Ashura! O great day for humanity. Ya Ashura! O great day of victory for all the Prophets and their communities. Ya Ashura! O great day for Muhammad the Beloved and Praiseworthy when he is crowned with the Makam al Mahmud, the Station of the Greatest All-Encompassing Praise, the One praising Itself through all manifest Being. O great day of Truth and Happiness for all beings! O Love! Ya Hazreti Fatima al Kubra, aleyhi salam! Ya Hazreti Ali Amir al Muminin, aleyhi salam! Ya Hazreti Pir Nureddin Jerrahi, Ya Amina Tasleema al Jerrahi, Ya Hazreti Muzaffer Ashki al Jerrahi, Y Hazreti Nur al Anwar al Jerrahi, may Allah's loving Mercy encompass you all! Ya Ummeti Muhammad! Alhamdulillah! Ya Imam Huseyn and Martyrs of Karbala, please intercede for us that we may be this Love! Ya Hu Allah! – Fariha Fatima al-Jerrahi (January 28, 2007)
