The Rifa’iyya Sufi Order in South-Western Asia

30 APRIL 2020 | Authors: Hasan Ali Khan, Aliya Iqbal Naqvi

As a Sufi order, the Rifa’iyya is better identified with Iraq, its birthplace, and with parts of Anatolia and the Levant. But, a branch of the order, retaining its pre-modern organizational structure, is also based in the city of Karachi. This particular branch has strong connections to the coastal areas and the hinterland of Pakistani Baluchistan, Iranian Baluchistan, and the northern coast of Oman. In addition, it has followers on the east African coast and in South Africa.

Gemessen an ihrer Bevölkerungszahl ist es die zweitkleinste Provinz der Türkei: Tunceli, eine kleine, schwer zugängliche Bergregion, etwa 800 Kilometer östlich von Ankara. Gerade einmal 86.000 Menschen leben hier, auf einer Fläche, die halb so groß ist wie Thüringen.
