Quora Answer: What is Agnostic Universal Sufism?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “What is agnostic universal Sufism? 

That is an oxymoron.  Sufism, taswawwuf, is about finding a connection with the Divine.  An agnostic doubts or ignores the Divine.  In such a case, what is this connection with?  Sufism denies everything except the Real, where Creation is a reflection of Divine Attributes.  What ae these pretenders engaged in then?  In short, there is no such thing.  This is a façade, a pretense of the real thing with none of the striving, none of the work, and none of the states.  This is for children playing at being spiritual, with none of the sciences of spirituality.  It is a delusion for the deluded.
