                                                                AN  INTRODUCTION TO

               WORLD  SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE  AND  RESEARCH  FOUNDATION

                                                                          (ESTD. 1775 A.D.)

Inspired by Divine Teachigs and Beliefs, Hazrat Shah Sufi Syed Akhund Neyamatullah Sharif (RA) the noble father of Hazrat Sufi-Safi Hajjiul Haramine Sharifaine Shah Syed Muhammad Meherullah (RA) initiated a spiritual mission in the year 1775 AD. Hazrat Sufi Safi Syed Meherullah (RA) lateron formally founded the World Spiritual Guidance and Research Foundation (WSGRE) for  the promotion  of    Spiritualism,  Faith,  Justice,  Peace  and  Divine  Culture.  This  humanistic  spiritual  mission  had  been  developed  and  propagated  by  his  son  Hazrat  Shah  Sufi  Syed  Ahmed  Ali @  Jan  Sharif  Shah  Sureswari (pbuh)  and  his  grandson  Hazrat  Shah Sufi Syed Nuri Shah @  Abdul Hye (pbuh).  It  has  been  reorganized  and  developed  for  worldwide  activities  by  Al-Hajj  Shah  Sufi  Syed  Nuri  Akhtar  Hossain  Ahmadi  Nuri  @  Chunnu  Miah  Shah ( Pir Saheb of  Sureswar Darbar Sharif ),  who  is  the  great-grandson  of  its  founder.   He  inherits  the  wisdom  that  good  deeds  and  good  people  promote  civilization  and  civil  society.  Therefore  he  shuns  and  opposes  arrogance,  terrorism,  cruelty,  vulgarity,  insanity  and  such  other  vices.  The  spiritual  mission  of  WSG&F  is  to  promote  Divine Culture  to  reform  the  sinners  and  deliver  the mankind, society  and  civilization from  evil  instincts and  spirits.   

Human being is the supreme creation of God. Apparently the humanity is divided  into  genders,  races,  tribes,  communities,  nations, colors,  languages,  religions,  creeds,  sects,  classes,  professions  and  so  on.  But  actually  mankind  is  the  progeny  of  a  single pair of parents  Adam & Eve.

God says in the Holy Koran :

“O mankind! Reverence

Your Guardian-Lord

Who created you

From a single Person,

Created, of like nature,

His mate, and form them twain

Scattered (like seeds)

Countless men and women;

Reverence God, through Whom

Ye demand your mutual (rights),

And (reverence) the wombs

(That bore you): for God

Ever watches over you.

-The Holy Koran-IV:1 (Sura Nissa.:1)

The origin of Mankind is a single family. Aim of   WSG&RF is to bring the hearts of all human being of the globe closer together to feel like a family, bonded to each other by love and compassion. Today God has Blessed us with marvelous scientific and technological inventions and developments which are turning the world virtually into a Global Village. Hazrat Muhammad (SAWS), the Last Prophet of God, said : “ One who does not have love in heart, is not a believer.”

When men and women truly turn to God, love God and are loved by God – they attain ability to truly love each other and love the creation of God. Oppressive discriminations are against Divine will. God has Endowed Mankind with intelligence and rationality. Man is able to expand its supremacy and domination over others. When human being indulges in evil instincts and transgressions, he or she becomes oppressor not only on others but also on his or her “self”.

Divine Teaching is “know thyself”. The more we know ourselves, the more we know God. The more we know God,

The more we love to surrender to God. The more we  love God, the more we love God’s creations. A spiritually educated soul is a calm soul who depends on Divine Providence and does not resort to sinful violent and terrorist means. When the world will be predominantly inhabited and ruled by spiritual people, peace and prosperity will prevail everywhere. Therefore, universal cultivation of spirituality is urgently needed to make the world peaceful as well as prosperous.
