Sufism is a mystic tradition that found a home in Islam encompassing a diverse range of beliefs and practices dedicated to Allah/God, divine love and sometimes to help a fellow man. Tariqas (Sufi orders) may be associated with Sunni Islam, other currents of Islam, or a combination of multiple traditions. It has been suggested that Sufi thought prominently emerged from the Middle East in the eighth century, and adherents are now found around the world. Sufism is neither a new religion nor a cult, neither a doctrine nor a dogmatic institution. Perhaps one could say that Sufism is the same religion of the heart that has always been, ever since wisdom was wisdom. Esoteric schools can be traced as far back as the time of Abraham, and even earlier.

DYK question mark
  • ...that a major population in South Asia, Central Asia, Southern Russia and Indonesia became Muslim solely due to the missionary work of Sufi tariqas.
  • ....murraqba and zikr e qalbi are some of the practices of Sufism.
  • ....Discussing the characteristics of Tassawuf and Sufis, Hazrat Ali Hujwari supports what Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi says about these qualities. Hazrat Junaid attributes the following eight exemplary qualities of a Sufi. A true Sufi possesses:
  • The courage and magnanimity of Prophet Ibrahim.
  • The obedience of Prophet Ismail.
  • The patience and forbearance of Prophet Ayub.
  • The signs of Prophet Zakaria.
  • The poverty of Prophet Yahya.
  • The traveling nature of Prophet Isa (Jesus).
  • The simplicity of dress of Prophet Muss (Moses).
  • The Fuqr (contentment and renunciation) of Prophet Mohammed.
  • In the Holy Quran LA ILLAHA ILLAL LA HO WAHDAHO LASHARIQA LAHO Allah revealed:

Behold! Verily on the friends Of Allah (GOD) there is no fear, nor shall they grieve; those who believe and (Constantly) guard against evil. For them is Glad Tiding, in the life of the Present, And in the Hereafter: No change can there be in the Words of Allah (GOD). This is indeed the supreme Felicity. [10:62]

  • In another words Allah TA'ALA have revealed in the Holy Quran:-

None one can be its guardian except Al-Muttagun (The pious, Saints) But most of them know not. [8:34]

  • Allah TA'ALA declares that:

Verily, he who has purified the Nafs has attained victory, and he who has despoiled it has lost.

  • Allah TA'ALA also states that:

That day of Qiyamat (the day of doom) neither wealth nor sons will benefit anyone, but that person who comes to Allah with a reformed hearts. Template:/box-footer
