Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan (1916-2004) was the eldest son and successor of Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan, founder of the Sufi Order in the West. His mother was Ora Meena Ray Baker . "He traced his spiritual lineage through a long line of Sufi pirs (masters), but his teaching was free from any religious bias or attempt to proselytize. His teaching brought the timeless contributions of the ancient Sufi mystics and poets together with the discoveries of psychology and science. He rejected absolutely any attempt to treat him as a 'guru', taking pride in the strong, independent and creative qualities of those drawn to be his students." [1] His eldest son is Pir Zia Inayat Khan.

His sister was Noor Inayat Khan.
