The teachings of Inayati Sufism are both those of classical Sufism, the Chishti lineage of Sufism, and the universalist Sufi teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan. The latter are found in the Message Volumes, as well unpublished esoteric papers. The essential teachings of Hazrat Inayat Khan may be found in the Ten Remembrances (or "Ten Sufi Thoughts") and the Three Objects.

In his lifetime, Hazrat Inayat Khan composed numerous prayers in English. These universalist Sufi prayers are the backbone of Inayati Sufi worship. The most import of these prayers are the Toward the One and the Morning (Saum and Pir), Afternoon (Salat and Nabi), and Evening Prayers (Khatum and Rasul). Here they are found in gender-inclusive versions.



Within the Inayati lineage of Sufism, the rules of adab or Sufi manners, are outlined in four sets of ten rules: the Iron Rules, the Copper Rules, the Silver Rules, and the Golden Rules. Proceeding from Iron to Gold, we pass through the most basic levels of adab up to more refined or subtle levels. They are guidelines for healthy spiritual action in the world, through which we express our spiritual chivalry to one another, and to the earth.
