تصوف دنيا كى دشمنى اور مولا كى دوستى كا نام ہے
“Tasawwuf (Spiritualism) is the name given to
the enmity of the world and the friendship of the Lord”
[Hadhrat Haji Mustafa رحمه الله]
In this day and age, we find many people who contradict the existence of Tasawwuf whilst many people are oblivious or unaware of its meaning.
This quote tells us in the most simplistic way that any act which is committed in the love of Allah is what is known as Tasawwuf.
Purity of the heart is what is intended and this can only be achieved when our love for the world does not supercede our love for Allah.
Many people dwell into searching within the Qur’an and Sunnah for the mention of Tasawwuf and its existence. Having been unable to identify it, due to lack of knowledge and understanding, they turn away rejecting the entire concept. Yet, the Scholars have beautifully explained that in the time of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم, Tasawwuf was a reality without a name, today Tasawwuf is a name, but few know its reality
