The purpose of the institute is to create an environment of science and art based on interdisciplinary works using Sufism’s holistic and in-depth view in order to serve humanity in reaching peace and happiness. With the programs that it will initiate as an institute of specialization, the institute aims to raise individuals who have internalized humanistic and ethical values, who are sensitive towards art, who think, research, create, and know the value of time, who are hard-working and of a great capacity for well-seeing.
