What is QSFA?

The Basics

The Qadriya Sufi Foundation of America is a spiritual organization devoted to creating love and bringing spiritual transformation within the individual. Whether it is through guiding an individual spiritually, empowering other spiritual groups, encouraging education, or serving the community, the organization strives to be a source of light and love in the lives of all.

Affiliates

Today, the organization sponsors two main focus groups: 

Ahl-e Qulub- a Sufi music group whose purpose is to spread light and peace through traditional and original Sufi litanies.

Mindfulness in Higher Education- a non-profit program providing scholarships and encouraging mindfulness on college campuses.

Our Principal

Everything associated with QSFA is, and will always be, 100% free and unconditional, Beloved willing. No donations are accepted.

Foundation

While the history of this lineage starts long ago in other parts of the globe,  Qadriya Sufi Foundation of America began in the United States in 2011 when Dr. Ghulam Jilani was given the khilafat (spiritual succession) of his teacher, Hazrat Allama Chaman Qadri (r.a.). Following in his footsteps of a life of spiritual service on the Qadriya Sufi path, QSFA began with its many initiatives.
