Shaykh ‘Abd al-Karim al-Qadiri (q.s.) on Sufism

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Shaykh ‘Abd al-Karim al-Qadiri (q.s.) said, “Sufism in Islam has nothing to do with the spiritual exercises of Hinduism, nor with arts of magic and tricks of deceivers, nor with discipline invented and developed by heretical innovators.  The Sufism of Islam is the cultivation of the characteristics of the al-Musthafa (s.a.w.), and the illumination obtained from the lights of his noble breast and his gentle heart bestowed upon him by Allah (s.w.t.) through the expansion of his breast.  All of his followers and his community are among those specially Favoured with that expansion and illumination.  Outsiders have no justification for meddling in the significance of Sufism in Islam, for the religion Belongs to Allah (s.w.t.).  The truth is with Him and He is the Fairest of judges.”
