About SUFI Friends, the Institute and Courses
Dear Friends and Learners,
First, I would like to sincerely thank all the community of friends and colleagues who have helped with ideas and images to create this SUFI Institute website for the Sufi Message. Gratitude goes to the following people who donated so generously to the construction of our site: Ben, James, Adeeba, Taaj & Andrew, Sara, Sophia, Saqi, Meena, Amrita, Naheed, Mahbud, Jay Lev, Khaliq, Tanzen Two-Feather, Robin and Inayat. Without your generous help we could not have gone forward to make this site a reality. May it expand and grow in support of the arising needs within all peoples lives.
Hazrat Inayat Khan who has inspired this SUFI site has also influenced many Sufi Orders so that they could develop and advocate their type of transmission of his teachings. These many Sufi Orders have variable content and translations but overall the inspiration comes from one prophetic messenger, that is Hazrat Inayat Khan who synthesized four Sufi lineages, Chistiyya, Naqshabhandiyya, Suhrawardiyya, Qadiriyya and began a new Cause by calling the spiritual themes of Love, Harmony and Beauty, the Sufi Message of Spiritual Liberty. Applying his inspiration, this statement below reflects the true essence of our Institute.
To be a Sufi in practice means to be a true human being living a life of the heart and enhancing the attitude of well-being for the benefit of all.
The Sufi Universal Fraternal Institute provides wisdom and simple applications for promoting spiritual, physical and mental health modalities useful in our time. The drop down menu on the Institute Page will bring you into information about the following:
- Our purpose for each course,

Feel welcomed, feel greeted, and feel united within the true sense of collaborative learning.
Yours in infinite blessings and service and again deep gratitude to our donors,
Aadya Murshida Dr. Perez-Chisti, President
