Mission of Naqshbandi Aslami Sufi Tariqah

The Great Khwajah, Sultan of Awliyah, Ghaus-e-Zamaah, Qutub-e-Daurah, the Mirror of truth and Spirituality, Master of Tasawwuf Hazrat Khwajah Pir Sufi Mohammed Aslam Sahib (may Allah be pleased with him) came to these barren shores in 1963 with sole intention of spreading the message of Islam. Over the next 36 years, the great Khwajah spread the massage of Islam not only in the UK but in Europe and Asia through the remembrance of Allah Almighty and the love of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).

Sufism or Tasawwuf, as it is called in Arabic, is generally understood by scholars and Sufis to be the inner, mystical, or psycho-spiritual dimension of Islam. Today, however, many Muslims and non-Muslims believe that Sufism is outside the sphere of Islam. Nevertheless, Seyyed Hossein Nasr in his article The Interior Life in Islam contends that Sufism is simply the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam.

Sufis--which is what practitioners of Sufism are called--are on a spiritual journey toward Allah. In order to guide spiritual travellers and to express the states of consciousness experienced on this journey, Sufis produced an enormously rich body of literature. This journey is referred to as the path (Tariqah). While all Muslims believe that they are on the pathway to Allah and will become close to Allah in Paradise--after death and the "Final Judgment"-- Sufis believe as well that it is possible to become close to God and to experience this closeness--while one is alive.

Furthermore, the attainment of the knowledge that comes with such intimacy with Allah, Sufis assert, is the very purpose of the creation. Here they mention the hadith qudsi in which Allah states, "I was a hidden treasure and I loved that I be known, so I created the creation in order to be known." Hence for the Sufis there is already a momentum, a continuous attraction on their hearts exerted by Allah, pulling them, in love, towards Allah. They experience the joyful ecstasy of being gently drawn to their Eternal Beloved, yet this primordially blissful return seems to have been interrupted. The Persian poet Hafiz remarked,

"O Wine giver, pour me a cup and pass it around for love seemed easy at first,
but later the difficulties arose."
