Spiritual Names Database Now on the Internet

Beloved One,

As an outcome of the Federation of the Sufi Message meeting in New York City in April 2005, Pir Moineddin’s vision of “Spiritual Names” as a project that our streams of the lineage of Hazrat Inayat Khan might work on together, is now available on the internet.

If you like to do a search on a name or list all the names (more than 1,800) you can click on the appropriate link on the page:

Spiritual Names Database (under Resources)

You can do a search by simply inputting as many letters of a name as you like, this will return matching names, meanings, origin (Hebrew, Christian, Arabic, Zaruth, HIK, etc…) and how it has been used in the past by the branches of Hazrat Inayat Khan lineage.

You can also simply list all the names in alphabetical order (you can click for the next page at the bottom of the display).

The Federation of the Sufi Message wishes that our whole family and lineage from Hazrat Inayat Khan benefit from this internet publication of this database. This database will of course be updated (it is created in Microsoft Access 2002). All the names might not have the meaning yet as this is a work in progress. Your feedback and help is most welcome to make this a tool available to our family in helping for the selection of spiritual names.

Thanks to all who contributed to make this project manifest in the light.

Blessings,

En Français :

Comme fruit de la réunion de la Fédération du Message Soufi, ce travail permet de continuer la vision de Pir Moineddin sur les noms spirituels dans les branches d’Hazrat Inayat Khan.

C’est un outil pour montrer les noms spirituels utilisés par les branches de la lignée d’Hazrat Inayat Khan. Cela permet de voir le nom, la signification du nom, l’origine du nom et comment il fut utilisé dans le passé (HIK qui est Hazrat Inayat Khan, ou SRI Soufi Ruhaniat, ou SM Soufi Mouvement, etc….)

Simplement cliquer sur ce lien pour y accéder, il suffit d’entrer quelques lettres pour rechercher un nom, par exemple si vous entrer « kar » cela donnera les noms qui commence par kar comme karim ou karima.
