World Spiritual Guidance and Research Foundation
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
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.
Al-Hajj Shah Sufi Syed Nuri Akhtar Hossain Ahmadi Nuri, the able son of Hazrat Syed Nuri Shah (RA) is the Current president of the World Spiritual Guidance & Research Foundation. He is also the Current Custodian of Darbar-e-Aulia Sureswar Dayera Sharif (The Holy Shrine of Sureswari R.A). He recieved his education in Theology and Law.
