“Maktab Tarighat Oveyssi (MTO) Shahmaghsoudi, School of Islamic Sufism, is an international non-profit organization dating back 1,400 years to the time of the Prophet, Mohammad.
The founder of the School is Hazrat Oveys Gharani, whose way of inward cognition was approved by the Prophet of Islam. The present master of the school is Hazrat Salaheddin Ali Nader Shah Angha.”

Like most Islamic centers in the United State this School of Islamic Sufism is heavily protected. These photographs were taken from an external sidewalk. I will be seeking permission to visit the school soon.

Reseda, CA 91335-4621
