About Us

We are a community of students of Sidi Shaykh Muhammad al-Jamal ar-Rifa’i ash-Shadhuli of Jerusalem. Sidi is an extraordinary spiritual Guide who has opened our hearts to Divine Love and dramatically transformed our lives. We are dedicated to embodying and sharing Sidi’s message of peace, love, mercy, justice, freedom, and beauty.  The Sufi way is a path of unity that draws us from all walks of life and every ethnic group. While largely based in North America, we are linked to communities in South America, the Philippines, Japan and Europe.

Invitation to Zawiyyah



Opening of a Zawiyyah at the Mother Center

Since the time of the first Sufi masters, students have travelled to the zawiyyah of their shaykh to study the teachings of the way and to receive guidance and help in walking the Path to Allah. The Mother Center is now establishing a permanent zawiyyah for our beloved guide Sidi Shaykh Muhammad Sa'id on the land in order to make the teachings of our Shaykh accessible for retreat and study and to establish a "place" where the teachings of "our" Shaykh are held sacred. At this time, Sidi has requested that the Shadhdhuliyyah Zawiyyah be especially for women to come to a safe comfortable place to receive guidance. This does not, however, exclude men who wish to come. There are many available rooms to stay and the mosque is also a place to sit in quiet retreat and study.

Taking knowledge of the way and purifying your body, heart, and soul is an individual responsibility and involvement in this way is necessary. One aspect of involvement is the purification of the soul from temptation. This science searches for the ills of the selves and corrects them by revealing healing and remedies so that the self attains strength and prosperity.  The University of Spiritual Healing successfully fulfills this purpose and more at the Mother Center.

Studying in the zawiyyah is another aspect offered to students following the way. It provides a space where the nafs is free from activity in the lower world and protected from everything that leads to darkness and to extinguishing the light of the heart. It is a place of seclusion to be alone with your Beloved God and absent from the demands of worldly life. The leader in the zawiyyah is one who has walked the path with the guide and helps to support the student to polish his or her heart, facilitate the way of the disclosure of the lights, and walks with the student on the road, so that reaching Him is easy and Allah grants you ease.

An invitation is open to all those who are students of our Shaykh who want to dive into and drown in the Ocean of the Way to take the gnosis from his spirit and understanding of how to walk to Allah in this world and the next in this way through his heart and his spirit and his beloveds who follow this holy way.

Jewels from This Path

"Know that love is the basis of all stations (al-maqamat) and states (al-ahwal). All stations are given a rank under it, for it is the means for the realization of every station or the fruit of its fruits, such as will, longing, fear and hope, surrendering of passions, contentment, trust, unity (at-tawhid) and knowledge (al-ma'rifa)."
