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.

So you were a G? Lol

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

I admire their aqhlaq which is Arabic for character

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.

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.
