Some questions in the world are really attractive and beautiful for their seeker, but taste of everything cannot be explained in words rather we should taste them like “” sufism in islam. Love and affection is the essence or crown of our soul because everything is a matter which is the lowest form of energy and will transform into other forms. Creation of humans was done through soil (different element & state) but soul is purely from Allah (divine), who loves his creation because he is only good and pure. Goodness is the cause of love thats why soul has an essence of love in it which loves its origin.
Sufism practice, Is the way of love with Allah and his creation (other souls) and through this method we are connected with divine, pureness of soul which indicate essence of love and love is mainly an attribute of Allah (divine), soul only has an essence of Love.
A signature work.
وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يَتَّخِذُ مِن دُونِ اللَّهِ أَندَادًا يُحِبُّونَهُمْ كَحُبِّ اللَّهِ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَشَدُّ حُبًّا لِّلَّهِ ۗ وَلَوْ يَرَى الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا إِذْ يَرَوْنَ الْعَذَابَ أَنَّ الْقُوَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعَذَابِ –
And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah . But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah . And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment.2:165
What is absolute sufism?
sufism in islam, Answer is straight for those who know the essence of love and want to spread the message from Love One (Allah).
In the love of Allah, sufis are practicing and trying to obey Allah’s order as Allah stated in Quran, but reality is Sufi’s soul tries to mingle with the love of Allah through practical guidance from Quran and sunnah.
They are following the instructions of The Last Prophet Muhammad (s) for the right direction, Allah said in Quran:
قُلْ إِن كُنتُمْ تُحِبُّونَ اللَّهَ فَاتَّبِعُونِي يُحْبِبْكُمُ اللَّهُ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ ذُنُوبَكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ –3:31
Say, [O Muhammad], “If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
The sufism based upon Ehsan which means “Allah is seeing you or you are seeing him. these words are relevant from Hadith which is in Mishkaat (The Book of Hadith). Ehsan was explained by Prophet Mohammad (s) infront of Angel (Jebreil).
Who is a Sufi ?
A man who is trying to pure(The Purification ) his self for the sake of Allah’s Love through instruction of The Last Prophet(s) is “Sufi”. (sufism in islam)
Question, what is the instruction of the Prophet(s)?
Simply ” The instructions through him (Quran) ” and ” The instructions by him( Sunnah)”. Sufi dislike those things and actions which Allah didn’t like. He wants only purity and goodness for Allah’s will. Sufis learn, practice and teach through strings of love. After everything loves you, every creation loves and obeys you because creator loves you. You are in the list of those who love Allah and Allah loves them. If you want to read more
لَا إِكْرَاهَ فِي الدِّينِ ۖ
There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion.2:256
Who is Anti-Sufism?
There are no compulsions in the religion., but strickness is over prohibited acts (e.g Alcohol, gamble and etc), some people said that islam was spread through Sword, these people have rocky hearts rather then lovely soft heart. They didn’t love Allah rather they use Allah’s words for their own incentives. Those people are trying to spread political based religious faith which is fabricated and spread through compulsion for dominent over Society, states even in their families. these people are heartless and morally sick. They want to make muslims religious slaves under their own set of beliefs. slavery is prohibited in islam. Most of them said Pagan to sufis and sufism which is not a good word in muslim.
In Hadith Prophet Muhammad (s) said who testify that There is no God But Allah and Muhammad(s) is Allah’s Messenger will enter Jannah,
Is love with Allah Paganism?
Once I met Shaykh (Anti-sufis) in Saudi Arab, that time I had a counter in my hand for Prayer (Zikr), he said you are doing Bidha because Prophet Muhammad(s) never did zikr over Counter rather he made counting Over his fingers, at that time I was shocked, he said, at judgement day your hand will testify your act infront of Allah that “he use us for your Zikr, please forgive him” I replied wow then sufis move their whole body (Hadra) during Zikr, it means Allah will bless our whole body, after my words he got stubborn and ran away.
My Last word:
The essence of love is present in the whole universe and every particle serve each other for sake of Allah’s Love and his obedience. Sun is an example, which serves more then 10 planets and species over them, and never stops. Our essence of love (soul) comes from Allah and will go back, universal soul will also go back to its origin (Allah), we must keep Practicing islam and its moral values through essence of love. It is upon you now that you will go for option or choice, Allah offered options in Quran rather than choice. The option for us may be sufism which is truth only and choice is yours but right of choice is still in will of Allah rather then his creation.
Allah said in Holy Quran:
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ2:156
Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed to Him we will return.”
