Lectures on Tassawuf (Sufism)
Tassawuf, or Sufism as it is called, is the third science of Islam after Aqeedah (creed) and Fiqh (jurisprudence). It is the path towards spiritual enlightenment and the purification of the soul, it is the sword against desires, it is the Sheila against corruption, and it is the army against disbelief. Imam Malik ibn Anas raheema’Allah ta’alaa once said,
“Whoever studies Jurisprudence (tafaqaha) and didn’t study Sufism (tasawwaf) will be corrupted; and whoever studied Sufism and didn’t study Jurisprudence will become a heretic; and whoever combined both will reach the Truth.” [‘Ali al-Adawi , vol. 2]
