The Alawi Sufi order was founded by Sheikh al-Alawî, for whom the promotion of interreligious dialogue was a priority. The order shows how we can best serve humanity and try to harmonize the world and make it a more beautiful place. It accepts and acknowledges everything that can bring us material comfort, but always in close relation with the inner dimension, in a permanent balance between the profane and the sacred. The order seeks to advance a loving brotherhood of men. It encourages us not to reject rationality at the expense of spirituality, and not to be boxed in by a tame religiosity.
