Welcome to the Virtual Center
of the Ansari Qadiri Rifai Tariqa (AQRT) !
All Gratitude and Praise Belong to Allah!
May Allah’s Peace and Blessings be on His Beloved Prophet Muhammad

“We cannot count the blessings of Allah.
Yet, Allah has blessed us with His Biggest Blessing:
Guidance through Love, for which we are grateful.”
Murshid Shaykh Taner Vargonen Ansari
As a Tariqa [Spiritual school; Sufi Order], we follow the teachings and guidance of the Spiritual Leaders of the Entire Sufi Order: Murshid Shaykh Taner and Shaykha Muzeyyen Vargonen Ansari.
The 10 Principles of the Ansari Qadiri Rifai Tariqa are:
1. Focus on Allah only.
2. Rabita [Purposeful spiritual connection].
3. Service without judgment.
Our motto: We are not here to judge people; we are here to help people.
4. Hospitality and food.
5. Science and education. We base everything on science.
6. Seeking the truth and being independent thinkers. We do not believe what we do not see. We do not believe blindly. We investigate. We search for the truth and believe in the truth only.
7. More doing, less talking.
8. Working within your community.
9. Taking responsibility for what you know. Acting with your knowledge.
10. Tolerance. Being flexible in our communications with others.
We welcome all who come in peace for the purpose of learning and contributing to the well-being of everyone.
“Come, Come whoever you are, wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.
Our’s is not a caravan of despair.
Come even if you have broken your vows a thousand times,
Come, come yet again.”
Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi (May Allah be well pleased with him)
The main purpose of this Virtual Dergah [Center] is to share information and teachings of our Sufi Order.

We wish you have a very enjoyable learning experience and feel free to ask questions on our different platforms.

Interaction among like minded individuals is important for it gives an opportunity to learn, understand and develop in this world we live in. Open mindedness is what forms a community.
The intent of this Virtual Center is to give anyone or everyone interested in Sufism to come in contact with like minded individuals, get to know, have an exchange of thoughts, ideas and knowledge regarding Sufism.
Zikr [Repeated remembrance with contemplation] is the key in Sufism and we do have these practices done silently and vocally. Weekly Circle of Zikr is accessible online upon request.
