What is a Cherag?

A Cherag is a minister from the Sufi tradition. A  Cherag robe, therefore, is the robe that Cherags wear to perform services.

Cherag means lamp, and as a Cherag, we carry that “light” and share it with others.
Sufis believe that all religions celebrate the One and therefore  there is one Truth and many ways of expressing that Truth.As Cherags we participate in something called Universal Worship where we light a candle to all the worlds religions.This form of worship was brought to the West by Pir O Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan.
