The Qadiriyya ( Arabic : القادريه , also transliterated Qadri , Qadriya , Kadri , Elkadri , Elkadry , Aladray , Alkadrie , Adray , Kadray , Kadiri , Qadiri , Quadri or Qadri ) are members of the Qadiri tariqa (Sufi order). The tariqa got its name from Abdul Qadir Gilani (1077–1166, also transliterated Jilani ), who was from Gilan . The order relies strongly upon adherence to the fundamentals of Islam.
Celibacy has existed in one form or another throughout history, in virtually all the major religions of the world, and views on it have varied. Similarly, the Romans viewed it as an aberration and legislated fiscal penalties against it, with the sole exception granted to the Vestal Virgins . The Islamic attitudes toward celibacy have been complex as well. Some Hadiths claim that Muhammad denounced celibacy, but some Sufi orders embrace it.
