History


The world’s longest running journal on Sufism. Since its founding in 1983, the International Association of Sufism has been proud to be a home for Sufis, spiritual seekers of all faiths and traditions, and people around the world who are devoted to uplifting the quality of humanity and cultivating peace and understanding. Over the last three decades, IAS has been blessed with phenomenal growth, and has worked hard to be a leader in a wide range of areas. Among the longest running of its traditions of service is our journal, “Sufism, An Inquiry,” which we first published in 1987. Since that time, “Sufism, An Inquiry” has been a living reflection of the dynamic energy and growing global community of people living from the heart. The journal aims to foster the study and advancement of the true meaning of religion (and Islam), the interrelation between the principles of religion and the principles of science, and inner practices that foster equanimity and the expression of Love and Wisdom. Over 60 volumes, the pages of “Sufism, An Inquiry” have championed women’s rights and the work of the Sufi Women Organization; published scientific inquiries ranging from the physiology of HeartMath to the latest findings of astronomers; shared new translations of classic works of Sufi literature and poetry, and the stories of Sufi saints previously unavailable in English; offered articles and essays by leading psychologists on human development and the spiritual path, reported on human rights and other diplomatic movements ranging from the work of the United Nations to interfaith organizations such as the United Religions Initiative; explored the cultural gifts of world religions diversely embodied around the planet; and provided insight into a wide variety of effective practices for spiritual development.
