Sufi Order International
The Sufi Order International was founded by Pir Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927) a member of the Chishti Sufi Order who worked in Europe and North America beginning in the second decade of the twentieth century. He originally left the order in the hands of a female disciple, Rabia Martin. She led the order to become apart of the following of India teacher Meher Baba. In the 1960s, Khan's son, Pir Vilayat Khan assumed his father's mantle and reestablished the Sufi Order.
