What is Sufism?

Traditionally, sufism is one of the established Islamic sciences that deals with self-development and development of better character.

The major approach to achieve that purpose is based on observing three levels:

  1. Body: Commitment to the basic principles of Islam.
  2. Heart: Commitment to clean the heart from impurities such as:
    • envy,
    • hatred,
    • selfishness,
    • forgetfulness.
  3. Spirit: Commitment to have a pure recognition of God?[Dhikr] and achieve ultimate human perfection on the example of our Most Beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings upon him).

Masters of this science include among others:

  1. Imam Abul-Qasim Al-Junaid
  2. Imam Abu-Hamid Al-Ghazali
  3. Imam Abu- Abdulrahman Al-Sulami
