What brings seven million students world-wide to seek the sacred teachings of peace, love, mercy, justice, and freedom? Let it be known for those who seek it. Truth!

The undeniable truth that so many of us want to know deeply can only be heard from within our souls. There are few who have completely surrendered to the purest light of God and are able to speak divine truth to manifest peace, love, mercy, justice and freedom onto the entire planet.

This special event brings Shaykh Muhammad Said al-Jamal ar-Rafa’I ash-Shadhuli, a humble servant of God from Jerusalem to Southern California to share such Truth.

Sidi brings compassion, kindness and profound divine knowledge that gives hope for real and lasting world peace. Guidance is what Sidi offers to so many people with various religious and spiritual backgrounds; for truth does not discriminate.

Who is the Guide?

I am like the sea;
many ships sail across the sea,
but who knows
the depth of the sea?

When I move
through the streets,
I watch the sons of truth
pass me by;
I do not say anything,
but I open my heart,
and they enter!

- Sidi al-Jamal
