Silsilah (Lineage)

Sufi teaching proceeds by means of a teacher-student relationship. Each teacher-student relationship forms a link in a chain which connects any authentic Sufi Order back to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

This chain of initiation is called a silsila. The silsila of the School of Sufi Teaching connects the current Shaykh of the Order, Shaykh Hamid Hasan, to the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) through the five main Sufi Orders, the Naqshbandi, Mujaddidi, Chishti, Shadhili and Qadiri. Each of these are named after of a prominent Shaykh of the order.

Sufi Meditation has always been an important part of the teachings of all the Sufi shaykhs in this Tariqa. The more recent Shaykhs of the School of Sufi Teaching have made these Sufi meditation practices available to modern seekers of truth.

This sislila shows how the order that was found by Hazrat Abdul Bari Shah shares the Naqshbandi silsila, the Shadhili silsila, the Qadiri silsila the Chishti silsila.

The Naqsbandi-Mujaddidi silsila is a special branch of the Naqshbandi silsila, which gets its name from Shaykh Ahmed Faruqi Sirhindi (1564-1624). He was known as Mujaddid Alf Thani – The Renewer of the Millenium – because he was said to have renewed Islam and Sufism for the next thousand years.

Note:
Uways al-Qarani was a contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad. Although the two never physically met, Uways received teachings and transmissions from the Prophet, and there are various sayings of the Prophet that attest to this. (eg., Sahih Muslim, c.55). In Sufism, the term Uwaysi is used to describe a spiritual connection through which a student receives instructions from a deceased Shaykh (or, in some cases, the Prophet Muhammad).
