Sufism is Islamic mysticism. As such, it has the special disitinction of being found in the sunnite as well as the shiite traditions of Islam. It is extremely difficult to attempt a description of Sufism. Like all forms of mysticism, it is above all the search for God and this search may be expressed in many different ways, taking various forms.

Other definitions of the word translate to “the phenomenon of mysticism within Islam” and “the inward dimension of Islam.” Basically, inner piety and deep devotion are infused into Islam through Sufism. So while all Sufis are Muslim, not all Muslims are Sufis. Sufism is a religious order that can exist within any sect or denomination of Islam.

Sufism, mostly referred to as a way of life, encompasses certain mysticism within it. To be a true human being, free from all bondages and honest with the Almighty is being a Sufi. Sufism is all about learning how to be a complete person, who exists in total harmony with the Universal Consciousness, who has surrendered his will completely to the will of the God and has merged his identity with that of God.
