Sufi Teachers Visit 2016



Sufi Teacher Taner Ansari, head of the Ansari Tariqa (of the Qadiri Rifai Tariqa), and  his wife, Sufi Teacher Muzeyyen Ansari are returning to Australia in March-April 2016.

Shaykh Taner is Shaykh Ibrahim’s Shaykh, head of the Qadiri Rifai Sufi Order, and is based in up-state New York.

The visit is scheduled for 25 March – 6 April (inshallah, as Allah wills).

Shaykh Taner and Shaykha Ansari visited in February 2008 and more recently last year in February. It was a wonderful and valuable experience for all of us involved in our Sufi community at the time. We expect that the visit will again include a combination of healings, events and private time with Shaykh Taner and Shaykha Ansari.

There will be a Public Event, including a talk by Shaykh Taner and Zikr (Ceremony of Rememberance) at the Reg Byrne Community Centre Meeting Room, on Tues 28th March at 7pm. Please contact us to RSVP for this event.

If you would like to be involved contact Muhyiddin/John on 0432397694 or use our contact form.

Melbourne activities will be held from 31 March – 5 April (inshallah).

Sufi Healing

If you have a condition that has to-date not responded to medical treatment Shaykh Taner Ansari and Shaykha Muzeyyen Ansari are offering Sufi healings during their visit. Working together, they treat all conditions and their reputation as accomplished Sufi healers is worldwide. The healing is energetic/spiritual and it is necessary that you have already seen a medical professional about your condition. Appointments last for up to 1 hour. More detail is available here.

Note: Sufism is a sensible, useful spiritual practice. It is not a religion, and all are welcome. Please come with an open heart and an open mind. Sufism is an ancient spiritual tradition of learning how to take the journey to your heart, and accordingly to the Divine. The teachings derive from thousands of years of spiritual practices. For a history and overview, see Idries Shah’s The Sufis or Shaykh Taner Ansari’s The Sun Will Rise in the West.

Shaykh Taner Ansari and Shaykha Muzeyyen Ansari publish a blog that is called, A Sufi Point of View: Messages from the Heart (
