"Come, Come whoever you are!

Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving.

It doesn't matter.

Ours is not a caravan of despair.

Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.

Come, yet again , come , come.”

-Jalaluddin Rumi-

Our Teacher
Murat Coskun

Murat Baba was taught

on this path

by Cemil Aksoy (d. 2018),

may God preserve his secret, 

who learned this path

at the feet of his grandfather,

the great shaykh of the 20th century, Kenan Rifai.

We trace this path 

from Kenan Rifai

through the years to our Pir, Ahmed er-Rifai,

through to our beloved

light of guidance,

Muhammad, God bless him,

to the Angel Gabriel,

who brought this teaching from 

the Divine Source of all knowledge, God.

Cemil Baba
and Murat Baba

This documentary will tell you more about Murat Baba and our order in its earlier days.
