It is precisely this sort of mindless reactions from Wahhabi/ Deobandi/Tablighi sympathisers that has lead to Sunni Muslims going into decay all over the World! Whatever else they lack, he scoffs, the devotees of Qalandar are insane: “there is no Sufi among them!” Mr Javed, the Sufi in Lahore, agrees. One man's mumbo jumbo is another man's wisdom. Bradlow contends that the effort to isolate Yusuf and the Constantia exiles failed.(30) Out of the sight of the Dutch, if never completely out of Dutch minds, the shaykhs quietly attracted followers from among the slaves and free blacks, instructed them in the tenets and practices of sufism, and initiated them into their respective sufi tariqa [literally, path or way; conventionally, order or brotherhood], thereby laying the foundations of Islam at the Cape.

In Tripoli security forces watched passively as� militants with bulldozers leveled the shrine of al-Shaab al-Dahmani, a venerated Sufi Saint during broad daylight. He said (to us): veil yourselves, and we retorted: is he not blind? And now there is no division – there is only you and you and you; there is not something that is seeing and something that is being seen. Keep the eye from three things or four, from looking at women other than those you may lawfully look at or looking lustfully at a beautiful form, from looking at a Muslim with a contemptuous eye, from perceiving the disgrace or vice of a Muslim.

The devotees bind themselves to the sheikh by an oath of allegiance and pledge to obey him unselfishly. They do this in order to gain converts from more developed nations, and to also boost morale among the ummah (the collective body of Muslim believers), "proving" that Islam is the "truth," and that even rich celebrities can see this. According to this "Salafi" argument, Sufism is a Trojan horse for unwarranted innovations that owe their origins to non-Muslim civilizations such as Greece, Persia, and India.

Emerging around the year 800, they were originally pious devotees, whose poor woolen clothes showed their humility: "Sufi" comes from the Arabic word for wool. In this fiercely religious Christian nation, minority religious practice is often suppressed: Last year, citing import laws, local authorities in Georgia’s Samtskhe-Javakheti region dismantled a mosque in the village of Chela. Islamic Sufi-ism means striving in the way of Allah in pursuit of spiritual purification, and is inseparable from the shariat.

Through comprehensive documentation and analysis, this book aims to introduce this genre of popular Sufi poster art for the first time to a wider readership. C.: The Sûfî Path of Knowledge, SUNY - New York, 1989). The US, in fact, continues to back fundamentalists—in Saudi Arabia, in Afghanistan, in occupied Iraq.

The key Greek texts were translated into Arabic in the ninth century, and their inluence on much subsequent Arabic philosophy, both Muslim and Jewish, is very strong. In a debate between trusting God and human exertion, Rumi quoted the prophet Muhammad as saying, "Trust in God, yet tie the camel's leg."8 He also mentioned the adage that the worker is the friend of God; so in trusting in providence one need not neglect to use means.

Shah attracted a sizeable following in Britain, including the novelist Doris Lessing and the poet and novelist Robert Graves, but also elsewhere. Ayaz advises the conquering Sultan Mahmud to leave his self behind since he is better being entirely We. A popular new book, The Da Vinci Code[20], a thriller by Dan Brown, tells the story of a Harvard professor summoned to the Louvre Museum after a murder there to examine cryptic symbols relating to da Vinci's work.

He reminds us to hold steady and stay straight on the Naqshbandi Way and do not divide or follow any other way than that which our beloved Sheikh Nazim taught us all.
