Aims and Objectives

The School of Sufi Teaching is a branch of a Sufi Order which has been present in India since the 12th century, and whose teachers (or Shaykhs) can be traced directly back to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

A few decades ago Hazrat Azad Rasool, the Shaykh of this Sufi Order, noticed that many people were visiting India seeking spiritual advancement and enlightenment, but often got side-tracked or found it difficult to meet a trustworthy and authoritative spiritual guide who could teach them the subtle intricacies of the spiritual path.

In order to address this problem, Hazrat Azad Rasool established the Institute of Search for Truth in New Delhi, India with the consent of his own Shaykh, Maulana Mohammed Saeed Khan (r.a.). This was in 1975.

The aim of the Institute of Search for Truth was the following:- to serve the needs of people from all backgrounds who are seeking the Truth and the spiritual advancement of the self, and who may benefit from authentic Sufi teachings.

This Institute, under the name of The School of Sufi Teaching, now has branches around the world, with students from countries as far afield as the USA, Canada, Brazil, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Turkey, Poland, UK, Egypt, Tunisia, Ethiopia and South Africa.

The aim of School of Sufi Teaching remains the same as the Institute of the Search for Truth:- to make authentic Sufi teachings available to sincere seekers around the world.
