After the death of his beloved teacher, the opportunity came for Inayat Khan to carry out his instructions, and on September 13, he sailed for America, accompanied by his brother Maheboob Khan and his cousin Ali Khan. His youngest brother, Musheraff Khan, followed a year later.
At first, Inayat Khan was bewildered by the fast pace of the West, but, being a Sufi, he soon adjusted. He wanted to teach through music, but this was early in the century and the West had not yet developed the interest in Indian music it has today. However, in due time the way opened. At first he performed and lectured on music at Columbia University, winning the warm commendation of several professors and students.
Soon he visited other major American universities, speaking before intelligent, appreciative audiences on philosophy and music. Later he went to England and other countries in Europe; everywhere he found people profoundly moved by his spiritual teachings, many of whom asked for initiation. He made it quite clear that he was not propagating a new religion, but was bringing the eternal Message of the essential divinity of humanity, a Message of spiritual liberty, free of separatism or dogma.

The family settled in Suresnes, near Paris. There he held an annual summer school where mureeds from around the world gathered to hear his lectures and to receive blessings and guidance. During the rest of the year he traveled and lectured widely. These lectures were later published in twelve volumes entitled The Sufi Message of Hazrat Inayat Khan which are now studied worldwide.
The subject range is vast, including the inner life, music, the mysticism of sound, education, character-building, the art of personality, health, psychology, the path of initiation and discipleship, and so on. The teachings of the Sufi Message are characterized by freshness of outlook, simplicity of language, depth of wisdom, and prophetic vision.
The Sufi will go the synagogue and pray as the Jews do; will offer Salat with Muslims; and in the Hindu temple worships the same God. Sufism is a religion if one wants to learn religion from it; it is a philosophy if one wants to learn wisdom from it; it is mysticism if one wants to be guided by it in the unfoldment of the soul; and yet it is beyond all these things.
