Welcome to The Inayatiyya UK

Sufism is not a religion or a philosophy, it is neither deism nor atheism, nor is it a moral, nor a special kind of mysticism, being free from the usual religious sectarianism. If ever it could be called a religion, it would only be as a religion of love, harmony, and beauty.

Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

The Inayatiyya UK, formerly known as the Sufi Order (UK), draws its inspiration from the work and teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan, his son Pir Vilayat, and his grandson Pir Zia who is Head of the Order. Its ideals are to:

  • Provide a programme of spiritual training to bring about a deep personal transformation, culminating in a balanced, harmonious and creative life.
  • Find new ways to apply the spiritual ideals of love, harmony, and beauty to the challenges and opportunities of everyday life.
  • Serve God and humanity by helping to relieve suffering, promoting understanding and acceptance among adherents of various faiths, and encouraging the unfoldment of universal loving kinship.

The Inayatiyya UK comprises of six interrelated activities, created by Hazrat Inayat Khan: Inner School, Healing, Kinship, Universal Worship, Ziraat and Knighthood of Purity.
