Sufism: A Peacful Path In Islam?

I have been reading about Sufism. See -> http://research.unc.edu/endeavors/fall98/sufis.html.

It appears to be a peaceful sect in Islam. I personally encourage Usman Mohammed, olabowale, babs787 and our other militant Muslim brothers to check out the path of Sufism. It may well be the path of enlightenment and peace that they urgently need.

What do u guys think?

You are free to call us whatever you like. On my part, I shall look for peaceful Sufi meditation materials and email them to you. I do hope you make use of them. Remember to pray for much needed world peace.

[b]STIMULUS/IMOHTEP[/b]it's clear that people like you make such untrue comments about muslims and islam that generates so much controversy,well it doesnt bother me because everyone has right to free speech and freedom of thought but what amazes me is that people should pick the logs in their own eyes first before picking out the logs in other peoples eyes,understand?you kids!!

Sufism opens the path for the arrival of Muslim mystics ( a mystic is one who has direct experiences of God). This mystical aspect (which mainstream Islam lacks so much) opens the path to inner peace and tranquility.

Inner peace and tranquility can lead to peaceful co-existence with others who are markedly different from us.

A true mystic will ignore the hateful musings of so-called masters who lacked inner peace.

Then it is a lesser of two evils. We know we cannot have a perfect world. A more peaceful version of Islam will mean a lot for the middle east and the rest of the world.

The myth about Sufism being a wholly peaceful version of Islam is only that,a myth.Here is the great Sufi Al-Ghazali comments on jihad:

"One must go on jihad (i.e., warlike razzias or raids) at least once a year, one may use a catapult against them [non-Muslims] when they are in a fortress, even if among them are women and children. One may set fire to them and/or drown them, If a person of the Ahl al-Kitab [People of The Book – primarily Jews and Christians] is enslaved, his marriage is [automatically] revoked…One may cut down their trees, One must destroy their useless books. Jihadists may take as booty whatever they decide, they may steal as much food as they need"

Nor is Al-Ghazali merely an aberration.Other prominent Sufis such as Tabandeh and Shah Wali-Allah have written in similar vein.Sufism may be a more peaceful version,relative to other schools of thought within Islam,but it is hardly what one may call a "peaceful sect." History tells us different.

Perhaps we should also recommend Sufism to our brother trukoments.

I never claimed to be an expert on Sufism. But I can smell potential terrorists from afar. These budding terrorists would benefit a lot from peace and tranquility.

Perhaps we should recommend Sufism for olabowale and babs787, before they turn into suicide bombers!!!!

IMOTEPH[b][/b]i've follwed your postings and i can say categorically that you are in no way competent to recommend Sufism to anyone but yourself and the bitterness you help spread.you know nothing of sufi's.
