Golden Chain


In sufi terminology, the Golden Chain represents one's spiritual genealogy from one's Sheikh to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wasallam).

This is also known as a "Silsila", which literally means "Chain" in Urdu.

One enters into a Silsila when one takes Bai'at (Pledge of allegiance) upon the hands of a Sheikh whose spiritual genealogy links him to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alaihi wasallam), and is a recipient of Spiritual Faiz.

The following represents our Golden Chain and like all Golden Chains, it begins with our Holy Prophet (saw)
