The Message of Sufism

The essential message of Sufism, a message holding true for all Sufis, is this:

To remember God and serve others.

    Ma’as salama… Pir Irving,

    Yes, very, very true. When you think about it, Islam could be defined as setting things right, so that you give God His due (Mighty & Majestic is He) and creation its due too. Huquq Allah & Huquq al-Ibad!

    How many ahadith of the Prophet (alayhi salatu wa salam) have we read which emphasise giving charity, help and assistance.

    Ya Allah! Ya `Azeem! Ya `Afuww! Ya Haqq!

  2. Salaam Dear Brother:

    How true your words are :) My Master, Dr. Nurbakhsh, has also said that, “Sufism is the way to God through Love.”

    So the path is remembering Allah always with love, and serving others with love also, for love is the foundation of the way to God.

    Ya Haqq!

    This is so true and simplistic. A lot of “Muslims” really try to complicate things and make this whole “Islamic” faith more complex than it is.

    It’s simple, it really is! Love Allah, and show that love of and from Allah to others! No seperatist attitude! We are all in this together!
