As far as I understand, in the view of these Shia Aarefs, each person should walk on a path (طریقة) towards God and obtain light (as stated several times in Quran, search for words like walking, path, light, etc., e.g. see verses 1:6, 57:9, 57:12-14, 57:28, 14:1, 6:122) but the best way to walk towards God is following the Sharia (شریعة). One school of Sufism states that any and all being, only has being, because of the presence of God, and without God there is no being.

He, thus, right from the childhood got deeply interested in religion. But if one accuses a person of a sin, one must prove it by providing witnesses in accordance with the sacred law. In other words if someone does not practice Islam it does not mean Islam itself is bad. Neither Islam nor Christianity should be your first love. The small excess, >the little innovation, led to the snowball effect, such that it emerged as >a movement for well-meant increased Ibaadah and Zuhd, to Kufr and >Innovation.

Significant Muslim minorities in western industrialized countries lead to increased participation of Muslims in those societies and the growth of religious, educational, civic and cultural institutions. Some people criticized Sufi and Tasawwuf and they said they were innovators, out of the Sunnah, but the truth is they are striving in Allah's obedience " Ahmed Zarruq (1442 � 1493), founder of the Zarruqiye Sufis,wrote that there are over 2,000 definitions of Tasawwuf.

It was to be used for a man and woman to get to know each other and no sin and then marry properly later. He believed in the essential unity of all religions, and he found that the essence of this one religion is love. Ibn ‘al-‘Arab� pronounced: “True divinity is female, and Makkah is the womb of the Earth.” Because he said the godhead was feminine, they accused Ibn al-‘Arab� of blasphemy. But this spiritual sanctity can be provided only by a person who has got such real and strong spiritual powers.

Since children have a right to education, parents have the duty to make sure they are taught. Seventy believers were of the same opinion, namely that excessive sleep is wasteful to life, causes one to miss his night prayers (awrad), leads to a lazy disposition, and hardens the heart. Although visiting Muhammad�s tomb at Medina is not obligatory it is recommended. The story is narrated by Annemarie Schimmel as follows: "There are variants of the story of how Abu Huraryra's cat, which he always carried in his bag, saved the Prophet from an obnoxious snake, whereupon the Prophet petted her so that the mark of his fingers is still visible in the four dark lines on most cats' foreheads, and, because the Prophet's hand had stroked her back, cats never fall on their backs" (A.

The Muslims passed by fortified Tyre but accepted the capitulation of Sidon, Ascalon, and Gaza. After his death his son Pir Abdul Haq compiled his poetry which is full of devotion and love for his murshid Syed Abdullah Shah. Chirkeisky, a critic of Muslim extremism, had ironically been working to broker peace between warring Islamic factions. Consulting, too, is a way of holding fast to causes. During this time the Archangel Gabriel came to her and consoled her by telling her what her father was doing in the spiritual worlds, what his status was, and what would come about in the Islamic community after her death.

Thirteenth century poet Rumi was a legendary Sufi, as are Turkey’s whirling dervishes. The CONTEXT of spiritual practice is as important as the practices themselves. i may practice an islamic spiritual tradition, but i would be foolish [and in my opinion, somewhat egotistical] to think that there is only one way to approach Allah I would certainly agree that there is more than one way of approaching God or Ulitmate Reality, and I have (myself) practiced many religious forms.

It appears as if whatever the follower obtains, while being in the colour of his prophet, is obtained directly from God, as if the two of them are drinking from the same fountain and are in each other’s arms, and are in the same bed, and are hand-in-glove. As to the schools of law, Abu Hanifa (born 699) and Imam Malik (born 711) were born during the Umayyad period.

They never imposed their beliefs on nonMuslims. They celebrate new members with (alcoholic) wine, bread, and cheese. It is said by them that music produces such purity in their heart that is not possible by other practices. Most of these eastern, religious mystics get so disappointed with the return to the secular as to coin a phrase �After the Ecstasy, the Laundry.� The Sufis never leave the common community.
