School of Sufi Teaching

The Silsilah of This Order

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 (SAW). This “Chain of Initiation” or “Silsilah” is called the Lineage Tree (Shajrah’i Tayyaba).

The Silsilah of the School of Sufi Teaching connects the current Shaykh of the Order, Hazrat Shaykh Hamid Hasan, to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) through the five main Sufi Orders, Naqshbandi, Mujaddidi, Chishti, Shadhili and Qadiri. Each of these is named after the name of a prominent Shaykh of the order.

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).
