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.
