Tawis, naqshbandi emulate for spiritual protection

Sufism or tasawwuf (Arabic: تصوّف‎) is defined by its adherents as the inner,mystical dimension of Islam.[1][2][3] A practitioner of this tradition is generally known as a ṣūfī (صُوفِيّ). Another name for a Sufi is Dervish.

Classical Sufi scholars have defined Sufism as “a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God.”[4] Alternatively, in the words of the Darqawi Sufi teacher Ahmad ibn Ajiba, “a science through which one can know how to travel into the presence of the Divine, purify one’s inner self from filth, and beautify it with a variety of praiseworthy traits.”[5]

Classical Sufis were characterised by their attachment to dhikr (a practice of repeating the names of God) and asceticism. Sufism gained adherents among a number of Muslims as a reaction against the worldliness of the early Umayyad Caliphate (661-750 CE[6]). Sufis have spanned several continents and cultures over a millennium, at first expressed through Arabic, then through Persian, Turkish and a dozen other languages.[7] “Orders” (ṭuruq), which are either Sunnīor Shī’ī or mixed[8] in doctrine, trace many of their original precepts from theIslamic Prophet Muhammad through his cousin ‘Alī, with the notable exception of the Naqshbandi who trace their origins through the first CaliphAbu Bakr.[9] Other exclusive schools of Sufism describe themselves as distinctly Sufi.[10] ModernSufis often perform dhikr after the conclusion of prayers.[11]

Some mainstream scholars of Islam define sufism as simply the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam.[1] René Guénon in ‘Insights into Islamic Esoterism and Taoism ‘ (Sophia Perennis 2003) contended that Sufism was the esoteric aspect of Islam supported and complemented by exoteric practices and Islamic law. However, according to Idries Shah, the Sufi philosophy is universal in nature, its roots predating the rise of Islam and the other modern-day religions, save for perhaps Buddhism and Jainism; likewise, some Muslims consider Sufism outside the sphere of Islam.[1][12]

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    I leave a comment when I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to add to
    the discussion. Usually it’s a result of the fire displayed in the article I browsed.
    And on this article Sufism | Bicara Kekasih.

    I was actually excited enough to create a thought 😉 I do have a couple of questions
    for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or does it look like like some
    of these responses look as if they are left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list the complete urls of all your shared pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Definitely believe that which you stated.

    Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing
    to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while
    people consider worries that they just do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
