Welcoming the month of Hajj-
the blessings of the first 10 days!
Prayer Circle
Sunday, August 12
8 PM Eastern
on the community conference line

The first 10 days and nights of the month of Hajj are full, full, full of blessing, including one of the five nights on which no prayer is turned away, the night before Eid al Adha (Feast of Abraham). The Prophet (saws) said:

"There are no days more preferred to Allah, the Exalted, (than these 10 days) so increase in them tahlil (saying laa ilaha illa’llah), and takbir (saying Allahu Akbar), for verily they are days of tahlil, takbir, and remembrance of God, the Exalted. Verily, fasting one of them is equal to fasting one year, and an action in them is multiplied in reward 700 times.”

The Feast of Abraham, Eid al-Adha is celebrated on the 10th day of Dhul-Hijjah (month of Hajj), and it is strongly encouraged to spend the night of Eid (ie, the evening before as per the Western calendar) in prayer and supplication.

These dates are dependent on the sighting of the moon, insha'llah and so will be clarified much closer to the time.

For more info about the first 10 days please see


See you all next year!

The Shadhuliyya Sufi Center Northeast /
Woodstock Sufi Center

The Shadhuliyya Sufi Center Northeast/Woodstock Sufi Center is dedicated to healing and growing through the deep love of God. We serve Woodstock, NY, and the greater Northeast, and all those who are called to return to their true nature through divine love. Though the "technology" we use is Sufi-based, the teachings are universal, and all can benefit, whatever one's beliefs. At the same time we offer study in Sufism for the student serious about deepening their relationship to God in the Sufi way. 

"When you find the love, you find yourself."

We offer classes, Sufi zikr (chanting), spiritual counseling, healing sessions, teleclasses and more, and are affiliated with other Shadhuliyya Sufi centers in New York , Central and Western Massachusetts and Boston, among others, as well as nationally.

Healing in the Sufi way...

Our suffering as human beings  - emotional pain, mental confusion, physical disease, spiritual loss—is a reflection of where we have lost connection with the Deep Love that is our true nature.  Deep healing, joy, peace, harmony and much, much more are available when we return. Our physical health, our state of mind and heart, our relationships, our ability to earn a living and give productively in the world, all improve greatly when we return to Love. Ultimately, we contribute to world peace; how can we not when we are nourished by, live from and give Love?

Come join us in the glorious journey back to God within the deep heart, and the fruits that blossom from that – peace, love, mercy, justice and freedom.
