The Expansion of M.T.O. School of Sufism ®
In 1979, when Hazrat Pir moved to the United States with his father, he began to execute his father’s wish to expand the sacred teachings to a wider audience. In a short period of time and under his direct guidance and supervision, the teaching sessions started in many states of the USA. In fact, since the passing away of Hazrat Shah Maghsoud, the duty of propagating the true message of Islam across the world rests on his shoulders. He accepted this mission with love and dedication, and ceaselessly endeavors to guide, help, teach, and reveal the truth of Islam to mankind, whatever their school of thought, creed or religions and upbringing.
Through Hazrat Pir’s deep commitment to his father’s wish, the M.T.O. Shahmaghsoudi, School of Islamic Sufism, which he now leads, has developed into an international non-profit organization with over 500,000 students who attend centers located throughout five continents in America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia.
The history of Sufism has witnessed the expansion of the truth of Islam by Sufi masters during different eras. Salman Farsi spread the teachings of Sufism in Iran in early years of Islam, Hazrat Seyed Ali Hamadani moved to Keshmir in India to spread the teachings of Islamic Sufism there, and in our time, Hazrat Salaheddin Ali Nader Angha, in less than thirty years, spread the reality of Islam to new lands. The expansion has reached the seekers of truth in America, Canada, Germany, England, France, Spain, Sweden, New Zealand, and many other countries. Today, with the use of modern technology and the reach of the Internet, the teachings have become available around the globe. All this has happened during a time when a wide spread negativity against the teachings of Islam has been dominant. In spite of the strong resistance to the teachings of Islam in both the western world, and many intellectuals from the eastern world, Hazrat Pir with enormous energy and love has spread the true teachings of Islam which enable one to cognize his/her truth and ultimately, to know God.
