Having developed and expended in Iran, the Sufis of Nematollah, who, after centuries, took the way back from India to Iranin the eighteenth century, were divided into different cults in the nineteenth century.One of these cultswas the Tarighat of Safi Ali Shahi, which not only was separated from the main body of Nematullah, but it also includeddifferent or more tangible manner in political and social approaches rather than other cults.The manner which led to deep engagement of the cult with the Qajar court, so that it could penetrate among the Qajar courtiers as well; and, on the other hand, it had aneffective role on the Constitutional Revolution.This research, using a descriptive-analytical method and based on documentary studies, tries to evaluate how and why this Tarighat was formed.Moreover, it tries to studyits approaches in the political and social scenes of Iran inQajar era, during the period of Safi Ali Shah (the founder of the tarighat), and represent its consequences in the era of his successor, Zahir al-Dawla, to achievean overview about the developing fields of the political approaches of mentioned Tarighatduring the Qajar era and Constitutional Revolution.
The findings of the research indicate that Safi Ali Shah's thought was formed during Naser-al-Din Shah's era, and his political and social approaches were gradually reflected in his work. Accordingly, he was able to get the confidence of the ruling Qajar government and by attracting the courtiers and their material and political support; hecould expand his way (Tarighat) and develop the ideas derived from his social mysticism in the community. In addition to, along with these mystical thoughts, he managed to interact and align with the intellectual and modernist circle of the society, which ultimately, led to the influence of Safi Ali-Shahi'sTaright in the Constitutional Revolution.
Keywords: Qajar, Constitutional, Nematollahieh, Safi Ali Shah, Zahir al-Dawla.
