Sufism Reality

Sufism is a term created in subcontinent to define a person’s connection with islam. This term has no significance and roots with islam as such. When islam reached asia, it was pure islam free from all the sufi activities and any other innovations. With the passage of time, Sufism became a trade mark for the pious muslims. The literal meaning of sufi is a humble and pious person. This is a Persian word. So in Persia and in sub continent, the pious men were called sufi ad even now they are called so.

But the Sufism changed its track from being pure muslim to innovation. There came some people who, in the name of Sufism wrote poetry and stories of love. Their stories and poetries were once only for ALLAH and His prophet Muhammad s.a.w.w but with the passage of time, the love for ALLAH got corrupted by the love of men while the poetry for ALLAH and HIS prophet Muhammad s.a.w.w got corrupted with full of exaggerations and nonsense.

Sufism then introduced the ideaology of wahadtul wajudiat. By this concept they spread that ALLAH is everything and HE is everywhere. They presented the idea of ALLAH as hindus believed their gods are. With the blessings of the same Sufism, Sikhism developed. Sikhs believed in one GOD but they have their 11 gurus who are eligible for prostration. Schism is an offshoot of Hinduism and a product of Sufism.

Those love stories an heer-ranjha, sohni mahiwal, sasi-punnu, laila-majnu and other are all the creation of the minds of the Sufism struck people. Bully shah is a well known sufi poet who renounced islam and criticized that why should muslim offer namaz or got to hajj when ALLAH is everywhere. With the advent of modern Sufism, people started to construct shrines and started qawali and dancing which is pure un islamic.

Today, we see so much filth in the name of islam in the shrines which people do in the name of Sufism. They prostrate before graves, they dance there, women and men both take drugs and go without hijab. Sufism has promoted the concept of rahbaniat in islam which is a sin as per islam. Islam does not teach us to leave family and to leave the idea of finding the purpose of life and to dance, take drugs, beg and die. Such people will never have any place in hereafter but hell.

ALLAH swt says in Quran;
Al-Quran 9:34
“O ye who believe! there are indeed many among the priests and anchorites, who in Falsehood devour the substance of men and hinder (them) from the way of God. And there are those who bury gold and silver and spend it not in the way of God: announce unto them a most grievous penalty-“

Read the above verse and compare the suifs and the pirs and whatever happens on shrines and see how similar they are in their character to this verse. Certainly, those who were pious men of ALLAH never told these people to build their shrines or they never set the trend of promoting wordly love or exaggerations about ALLAh and His messenger Muhammad s.a.w. and about his pious men. These people have done all this because they are stuck by the satan.
