Sufism in History Ali, the fourth caliph of the earliest Islamic period and the son-in-law of the Prophet, is considered to be the sultan (spiritual leader) of all Sufis. He provides a great personal example of the highest level of faith since beginning of 8th century. Foundation of Practice The spiritual path of Sufism could […]
Aşk evrenle kesişir; yoktan var edilişinde de, mevcut durumunda da, geleceğinde de. Aşk sınırsızdır, kişinin onda yön değiştirebildiği bir boyuttur. Ancak, kişi onda asla bir bilince, entelektüel birikimine ulaşamaz, çünkü AŞK boyutu, akıl ve mantığın çok ötesindedir. Dinî açıdan, Aşk Allah’ın nefesi gibidir; onu duyabilir ya da hissedebilirsiniz ama şuurlu bir farkındalıkla odaklandığınızda, göremezsiniz. Aşk, […]
Part One When people were amazed at Abraham for sacrificing a thousand rams, three hundred oxen and a hundred camels, he retorted: “There is nothing surprising about this. We are sacrificing our goods for our Lord, for whom we sacrifice our life. Life is more valuable than goods. Moreover, whose goods are we sacrificing to […]
Sufism has been an essential part of the Islamic tradition from its origin, that is, from the time that the Qur’an was revealed to Muhammad in the seventh century.

Seek, and you shall find. As you study all religions, to find their interpretation of spirituality, you will discover the divine touch in each. The more places you look, the better your understanding will be. I don’t care what religion you come from! I think that all religions do good, and all of them have good and bad people in them.
Every religion has people who understand it’s teaching, and people who imagine themselves wise, and who are wise. I chose the Sufi Islamic path because I believe it is the easiest and most direct form of getting to know oneself without intermediaries; certainly, it is my path. I care that you really know yourself. This is the greatest gift, and you can only give it to yourself.
We each have the divine spark placed in us. It is our responsibility to make the connection, to awaken to the light, to open our eyes to the light within us, and to live in accordance to the divine light once discovered.
All religions join in a unity. It is the love of God. It is the proclamation from the very depth of the seekers heart for God. It seeks God’s reality and divinity.
All consciously awakening people seek to know themselves, to better themselves, and in removing the veils from ourselves, we find our light within.

Muslims also consider the original Arabic verbal text to be the final revelation of God—the Final Testament. […]
