The Jerrahi Sufi Order of Canada

Invitation

“Come, come, whoever you are.
Unbeliever, fire worshipper, come.

Our way is not one of desperation.

Even if you've broken your vows 100 times
Come. Come again.”
Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi

Our Vision...

The Jerrahi Sufi Order of Canada strives to promote peace, understanding and unity across diverse world views through sharing and appreciation of sacred knowledge and the arts.

The heart's abode it purifies
The dervish into phoenix it transforms
To the Realm of the Divine it leads
'Tis the Remembrance of the Lord,

Pir Nureddin al-Jerrahi (raa)

The sheikhs are the pourers of the wine and the dervish is the glass.
Love is the wine.
By the hand of the wine pourer, The glass is filled.
This is the short way.
Love could be offered to one by other hands.
This is the short way.

Sheikh Muzaffer Efendi

 

Drive out all others from your heart, that God may there appear;
A king will not set up his court in a palace that's unprepared.
