What is Sufism?

Sufism (Tasawwuf) is the esoteric teaching of Islam. We are living in the 21st Century, the age of instant communication, social media and YouTube and so would hope by now that Sufism does not require too much explanation.

Sufi Books

The seriousness of the teaching of Sufism and the endeavour to acquire the sweet nectar from the hives of our own selves requires learning and practicing. It is most important to collect books that relate to this teaching so that the psyche will obtain fresh and new realisations to balance the self.

(An Arabic word for Sincere Advice)

"Do not blame your parents, or your personality, or your society, or your geographical location in this world, or your so called 'karma', or anybody else for what you are. The Merciful Allah (God) gave every man and woman the chance to undo what has been done through genuine exercise of determination; to have access to the ultimate realisation of the Truth within yourself. Determined will is Allah's gift to you - when you tune your will to the will of Allah. In a nutshell - when you learn the art of surrendering your will to Allah. So, now is the time to decide, my dear brothers and sisters, about your purpose in this life. Are you going to be part of the problem? Or part of the solution to the crisis of this beautiful earth that the Beloved Allah has entrusted us with?"

Sufi Terminology by Murshid F. A. Ali ElSenossi

Word of the day: Evil (sharr)
Meaning: (Sharr). In itself evil is pure non-existence and denotes those things which cannot receive and accept the Divine Mercy. Knowledge is light and light is existence, therefore evil is ignorance which is darkness and non-existence. Allah, as All-Possibility and Absolute Perfection, demands the manifestation of sharr, for without it the perfection would be imperfect through being limited. What appears to be evil is the actual relationships which exist between the contrary Names.

Our topic deals with real silence, not 'sukut' - which is a non verbal condition which entails the absence of speech.

Cosmic Law and the Divine Consequences

Bismillah Compared to other species human beings are unique in every way. Biologically humans are more complex than any other life form, but when our metaphysical essence, spiritual and psychological sides are taken into consideration, we may be the most mysterious of all beings in the universe. In comparison to the size of the universe, we are like an atom. However, spiritually we are larger than the universe. The thoughts of a single, conscious human being could affect a powerful impact on the whole universe. When satisfaction or the pleasure of life is the matter being considered, unfortunately we are no match even to a sparrow. Compared to humans, this little bird receives many times more satisfaction out of life. For example, it does not need to work, buy a house, get married, pay bills, save or worry about its future. Finally, the most important of them all is that the animal has no concept of death. Human beings on the other hand, constantly struggle throughout life, not only physically but also spiritually, psychologically and emotionally. They are under continuous pressure. We regularly make plans that result in disappointment. We are always concerned about our loved ones, relatives, society and, to a certain degree the rest of humanity. According to research, the average human life span is 70 years. Read Full Article
