In the Name of Allah’s Boundless Compassion and Infinite Love

The Nur Ashki Jerrahi Community is an order of dervishes within the Halveti-Jerrahi Tariqat (Sufi Order), in the specific lineage and spirit of Shaykh Muzaffer Ashki al-Jerrahi, Shaykh Nur al-Jerrahi, and Shaykha Fariha al-Jerrahi. We are based at Dergah al-Farah in NYC, with various circles throughout the U.S. and Mexico. We joyfully welcome seekers and students of all religious and non-religious paths into our gatherings.

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 humanity 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.
