America's Leading Islamic Scholar - Imam Hamza Yusuf Hanson Speaking on Sufism 1/31/07 Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, who was chosen as the advisor to the President of the USA has written about and talked about Sufism for a long time, please read the article here: Tasawwuf / Sufism in Islam by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf.  You can visit the Shaykh's website at www.zaytuna.org.  Here is an exerpt of the article: "They have been the strictest adherents to the sacred law, but they have a wonderful principle: that is be hard on yourself and be gentle with other people. Unfortunately, the disease of this age amongst many Muslims is be easy on yourself and be hard on everybody else. So I think this is where the real crises of rejecting Sufism as one third of Islam has had really devastating results in much of the modern Islamic phenomenon. {Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq] said 'this is because no servant is free of fault unless he is granted infallibility or protection by God."

Sufism In Islam 1/27/07 "The traditional Sufi orders emphasize the role of Sufism within Islam. Therefore, the Sharia (traditional Islamic law) and the Sunnah (customs of the Prophet) are seen as crucial for any Sufi aspirant. Among the oldest and most well known of the Sufi orders are the Qadiri, Chisti, Oveyssi, Shadhili, Jerrahi, Naqshbandi,Naqshbandia Owaisiah, Nimatullahi and Mevlevi. One proof traditional orders assert is that almost all the famous Sufi masters of the Islamic Caliphate times were also experts in Sharia and were renowned as people with great Iman (faith) and excellent practice. Many were also Qadis (Sharia law judges) in courts. They held that Sufism was never distinct from Islam and to fully comprehend and live correct with Sufism one must be a practicing Muslim obeying the Sharia." -Wikipedia  Sufism in Islam has traditionally been the bridge between Sunni, Sufi, Non-Sectarian Muslims as well as Jews and Christians.  It focuses on the fitrah (nature) of all people who in Islamic theology are born Muslims or submitters to the one God.  Sufism without Islam and Islam without Sufism is not real Islam or Sufism.  Sufism is the mystical aspect of Islam that has been taught by the Prophet (pbuh) himself.
