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)

Our Mission

The Jerrahi Sufi Order of Canada is a worldwide, cultural, educational and social relief organization that preserves and advances the customs and spirit of traditional Sufi tenets in Canada. Globally and close to home, it advances spiritual and religious knowledge, social justice and the sacred arts through community service, multicultural events, lectures, regular meetings, and publications.

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; The King will not set up his court in a palace that’s unprepared.
