The mission of the Naqshbandi Haqqani Sufi Order is to spread the Sufi teachings of the Unity belief in God and the love of Sayyidina Muhammad ﷺ. The most distinguished Naqshbandi Order is the way of the Companions of the Prophet and those who follow them. This Way consists of continuous worship in every action, both external and internal, with complete and perfect discipline according to the Sunnah (way) of the Prophet. It consists of keeping awareness of the Presence of God, Almighty and Exalted, on the way to self-effacement and complete experience of the Divine Presence. It is the Way of complete reflection of the highest degree of perfection. It is the Way of sanctifying the self by means of the most difficult struggle, the struggle against the self.
