About the Golden Heart Awards:
The Golden Heart Award was conceived in 2007 by the Kinship Council to honor and recognize mureeds of the Sufi Order International of North America, Australia and New Zealand for their service. The award certificate reads, “In recognition of your vital efforts in the service of the Message of Love, Harmony and Beauty, you have been selected by members of the Sufi Order International in your region as an exemplar of the dedication and devotion that is the foundation of our work together.”
Each recipient receives an award certificate signed by Pir Zia and a set of tasbihs blessed by Pir Zia. Kinship Council members read biographical tributes provided by the Regional Representatives, and poster boards display the tributes and photographs of the recipients.
