Got a cousin who is a hard-core Sufi and he has a sheikh that he's pledged allegiance too

I've seen a massive change in him for the better since he became a Sufi

I knew some Sufi's both Asian and White when I lived up north, they were cool people, one used to buy hash off me back in my gangster days.

One of my favourite Buddhist teachers, a former crack addict named Noah Levine has studied with Sufi's.

Yea some sufis are some of the nicest people you can meet.

I admire their aqhlaq which is Arabic for character

Is he now a Sufi?

I'm glad he stopped crack and turned his life around

Nah matie, he's still a Buddhist, his Sufi friend's call him Tariq which I seem to remember means mystic.

Didn't know that

What you doing up so early can't sleep?

I woke up for prayers, which is something I haven't done for some time

Cool, I am glad you prayed mate. Sometimes I sit up all night playing games online and meditating so my sleep pattern is out of whack.

what is sufism? xxx
Sufism is a mystical form of Islam which focuses on the heart and it's diseases and tries to rectify the heart and character of the person to worship one God and not to associate partners with him

Check out quotes by rumi and al ghazali to mention a few, it's very deep

Sufism is the mystical form of Islam, or at least that's the way I understand it, Lu.

Got an Xbox one S, soulsearcher, used to build gaming PCs as well but it's to expensive keeping up with the tech.
