Sayings Of Scholars About Sufis And Sufisim


Sufisim is a religious movement that appeared in the third century as individual trends calling to asceticism and intensity of worshipping as a reaction to the civilized luxury then these trends developed till they become Sufi orders. No doubt that what they call to as repentence and asceticism are the matters of Islam but they innovated concepts and manners contradicting the deeds of the prophet and his companions. As they seek spiritual discipline to lead them to direct and intimate knowledge of Allah by Kashf
(unveiling knowledge) and Mushahada
(witnessing and contemplation) not by following legitimate ways of religion
