Chishty Foundation

About Us

Chishty Foundation is based on the blessed vision and message of “Love towards all, Malice towards none” which is the central message of Hz.Khawaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty (r.a) popularly known as Khawaja Gharib Nawaz (r.a) – meaning “Patron of the Poor.”

It’s a universal message for the whole of humanity that we may love and respect Creation i.e. fellow human beings, Earth, and all sacred sentient life and creations of the One Almighty Creator Allah (swt).

Our aim in establishing the Chishty Foundation is to realize this blessed vision and to create a platform for people from around the world who share the same commitment – to love and serve Humanity (Khidmat e Khalq) and to take spiritual and physical responsibility for stewardship of Nature (Khilafa) while spreading the message of Love Towards All in it’s full essence among the people of our beautiful planet Earth.

In today’s troubled times we believe that the messages of the great Sufi’s and Saints, which unite all of Humanity in Oneness towards the feelings of Truth, Divine Reality and to honoring the Sacred Presence within Nature, is the not just a way, but an essential way for the solutions of the world problems and a perfect road map towards the Path of Love, Peace, Sisterhood and Brotherhood among the whole Humanity.

The Chishty Foundation creates a platform for nurturing and promoting cultural, spiritual and ecological sacred regeneration through a number of platforms and initiatives, including our International Sufi Rang Festival, which honors, preserves and showcases ancient and modern Sufi Arts including Sufi Calligraphy, Sufi Poetry Culture, Photography, Sufi Music, Spirituality and through Sama and Qawwali – The Chishty Sufi’s food for the Soul.

The Chishty Foundation’s Clean and Green Initiative also works to inspire, empower and educate our local and global community to care spiritually and physically for our common home – Earth, while nurturing a sense of compassion and selfless service towards humanity and all life.

As part of the larger picture of our work in the near future we intend to incorporate faith values-centred spiritual ecology practices into our education programme at the Chishty Foundation’s Bab Ul Ilm ‘Doorway to Knowledge’ school for children from underprivileged backgrounds, located underneath the sacred Aravalli mountains on the outskirts of Ajmer.

In humble service to Creation, the Chishty Foundation delivers a number of charitable and empowerment services, including:

  • Set up and run “Bab Ul Ilm” Sufi School of Holistic Spiritual Sciences
  • Host the International Sufi Rang Festival, promoting the Sufi messages of Oneness, Divine Love and creativity through Sufi Art, Spiritual Music Renditions, Quranic Calligraphy Exhibitions and Sacred Architectural Photography Displays
  • Set up and initiate a local community Clean and Green Initiative, preparing to launch in Spring 2018
  • Provide free Sufi Vegetarian Meals on Wheels programs to nearby villages in Ajmer Khawaja Gharib Nawaz (r.a)
  • Provide Educational Scholarship support to students in need
  • Provide medical aid to local individuals and families in need
  • Provide empowering Skills Development program by setting up Computer Training Centres and Sewing Craft stitching and art skills
  • Share the spiritual loving kindness and compassionate message of Hz. Khawaja Gharib Nawaz (r.a) through Haji Syed Salman Chishty’s immense global outreach programs in almost 40 countries in the last 10 years by engaging in International Conferences, Inter-Faith Peace Summits, Universities and Academic Interactions.

Our charitable and empowering initiatives are now in their 10th year, and are a step towards us living the essence of complete Sufi understandings and teachings, while also inspiring and empowering others to unite our hands and hearts together to realize humanity’s sacred and joyful duty to love and serve Creation.

Alhamdulilah, this is our humble journey……

“Love towards All, Malice towards None”
– Khawaja Gharib Nawaz

15th Ramadan , The day when Holy prophet Sallela ho Alai hi wassallam became grandfather, Hazrat Ali Alaihisalam became father , Bibi Fatema SA became Mother and when Imam Hasam al Mujtaba was born

He Was Born On The 15th Of Ramaḍān In The Year 3 After Hijrah.

On The Seventh Day Of His Birth, The Prophet (Salalahu Ahlayhi Wa Ahlihi Wa Salam) Slaughtered Two Rams And Gave Away His Hair-Weight Of Silver As Charity.

He Was Named Ḥasan By His Venerated Grandfather, And His Titles Include Abū-Muḥammad, Sayyid And Zakī Among Others.

According To Sound Narrations, He Had High Resemblance With His Noble Grandfather From Head To Chest.

The Companion Anas Ibn Mālik Raḍiy-Allāhu Anhu Said: “None Of Them Resembled The Messenger Of Allāh (Salalahu Ahlayhi Wa Ahlihi Wa Salam) More Than Imam Ḥasan ibn ʿAlī.” (Tirmidhī).

When He Was A Child, He Used To Play With His Grandfather. He Would Often Climb Over The Back Of The Messenger Of Allāh Sall-Allāhu Alaihi Wa Ahlihi Wa Sallam During Prostration In The Prayer, And The Prophet Would Never Take Him Off, Until He Himself Would Get Off. One Day, The Prophet (Alayhi Salaat O Wa Salaam) Was In The State Of Rukūʿ Then Imam Ḥasan Al Mujatabah (Alayhim Al-Salām) Came And Passed Between His Legs. Sometimes, The Prophet (Alayhi Salaat O Wa Salaam) Would Open Out His Tongue And Ḥasan Would Laugh And Be Extremely Pleased By Watching It. The Prophet Of Allāh Used To Carry Him On His Shoulders. (Tārīkh Al-Khulafā).

Once, The Prophet Sall-Allāhu Alaihi Wa Ahlihi Wa Sallam Ascended The Minbar And Said:
“Indeed, This Son Of Mine Is A Chief/Syed; Allāh Shall Bring Peace Between Two Tremendous Parties Through His Hands.” (Tirmidhī).

The Messenger Of Allāh Sall-Allāhu Alaihi Wa Ahlihi Wa Sallam Once Hugged Him And Prayed:
“O Allāh! I Love Him, So Please Love Him And Love Those Who Love Him.” (Bukhārī)

In 49 AH, He Was Poisoned By A Woman Instigated By Yazīd Son Of Muʿāwiya. He Had Been Poisoned Multiple Times Earlier, But This Time He Did Not Recover. He Received Martyrdom With That Poison And Passed In 49 AH (Or 50/51 AH By Other Reports). He Was Buried In The Baqīʿ Graveyard In Madīnah.

#AmmiJaanSayyadahKhdijaTulKubra سالم اللہ علیہا #AlFatiha
سَیِّما پہلی ماں کہفِ امن و اماں
حق گزارِ رفاقت پہ لاکھوں سلام

Siyyamā pahli māń kahf e amn o amāń
Haqq guzār e rifāqat pe lakhon salam

Especially, the first mother, cave of safety and security;
Endless salutations on the one who fulfilled the rights of companionship
