Sufism is a schism developed during the fourth century of Hijrah, exploited by the deviationist sects, the Batini (clandestine) sects, and the rest of the enemies of Islam, such as the Jews, the Magians, and the Crusaders, to undermine Islamic aqeedah (dogma) and Muslim unity. (38)

“Sufism,” states the renowned Shaikh Abu Bakr al-Djaza’iri, “is a shameful deception which begins with dhikr (chanting the name of Allah) and ends with disbelief. Its outward manifestation appears to be piety, but its inward reality forsakes the commands of Allah.”(39)

In order to explore Sufism in-depth, its fundamentals must first be scrutinized, the better to caution the Muslim ummah against falling into the snares of this innovation, since the number of promoters and advocates of Sufism is increasing. Freemasonry is a likely advocate of Sufims today, in an attempt to counter the feared awakening of interest among Muslim youth in pure Islam, based on the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the His Messenger Muhammad (PBH) . The enemies of Islam dread the wide consequences of such revival because it affects all the Muslim world and diminishes their influence.

The following are the most important fundamentals of Sufism judged by the Qur’an and Sunnah, so that Muslims can tell for themselves how devastating it is to the Muslim ummah
