It is said ...
'' Whosoever relates himself to a Shaykh, in one way or another
thinking that his relationship will free him from something in the
shari'ah, is sorely mistaken. Tasawwuf is not about wearing the
patched up wool, weeping when singers sing, shouting, dancing
or enjoying 'these things,' nor is it about behaving like a madman;
rather tasawwuf is about being pure without turbidity & following
the Haqq, the Qur'an, din, And humbling thyself to Allah Almighty
feeling unworthy & sad, of having committed sins throughout life.''

''Tasawwuf is a long journey leading to the Infinite One and
demands unending efforts. It is a marathon to be run without
stopping with an unyielding resolution and without anticipating
anything worldly. It has nothing to do with Western or Eastern
types of mysticism or yogism or philosophies''
''Sufism is the internal mystical dimension of 'Islam', and not
a catchall or generic term for any and all kinds of esotericism,
gnosticism or mysticism. In the same way that Sufism exists
at the very heart of Islam, so too all the earlier dispensations
have had, and do have, their own unique mystical dimension.
It is, however, a mistake to call the mystical dimension of
another tradition or religion "Sufism"' !
''Just as Kabbala is a mystical dimension of Judaism, or Tantra
is an esoteric dimension of Hinduism, or Zen is an esoteric
dimension of Buddhism, Sufism is the mystical dimension of
Islam, and one cannot rightly say that it is the mystical,
esoteric, gnostic dimension of any religion other than Islam.
Neither is Sufism something isolated unto itself nor is it a new
religion. If one is a Dominican, one is by definition a Christian,
just as if one is a Chassid, one cannot really be anything else
but a Jew. Similarly it is not possible to be a Sufi unless one
is a Muslim.''
''Many of the ignorant think that the Sufis are lax in conforming
to Shari'a. Far be it from them to be attributed such a belief!
The very first foundation of their path is the Sunnah and the
avoidance of what contravenes it!''
