(salam)

 

As I was looking at the other thread about shia sufi orders, I was wondering if any of you has already BEEN to one of them sufi orders gathering, or even been a MEMBER of such orders. I am talking about shia (or at least labelled shia) orders like Oveyssi, Nematollahi/Gonabadi, etc...

 

It seems these orders are mainly Iranian, and to be honest I am quite curious about them, for the irfani aspect.

 

However when I look up, I tend to believe they are quite strange. There are a certain number of their centers across the world, and the organizations seem to be quite well off, judging by the beauty of the buildings. By looking at the pictures posted below, you will see what seems to be their rituals : sitting looking towards an empty place, sometimes standing and covered as for salah, but men separated from women by a row.

PS : I am voluntarily not asking about sunni brotherhoods since many of them are quite famous and they tend to respect shari3i principles.

 

Basically do you bris/sis have insight about them tariqas ?

 

Thanks

What is it that you are interested to know?

(salam)

Thanks for getting in touch.

I wanted to know to which extent the shari`i aspects of religion are respected.

Do salah, Quran and Ahl el beit (s) hold significant weight in the activities inside the khaneqa, besides zekr?

Brother, as I have realized, Imamyiah Shia itself is the main branch of Tariqat !

Tariqat is witin the society not in khaneqah.

Sticking to Ahlul Bait, is the biggest Tariqat.
