Another common denomination is the word Dervish (derived from Persian darwīš Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq , a 15th century Shadhili Sufi master, wrote in his major work "The Principles of Sufism" ( Qawa`id al-Tasawwuf ) that: [Sufism is] a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God.

Sufism's Many Paths
Dr. Alan Godlas, University of Georgia Sufism or tasawwuf, as it is called in Arabic, is generally understood by scholars and Sufis to be the inner, mystical, or psycho-spiritual dimension of Islam. Today, however, many Muslims and non-Muslims believe that Sufism is outside the sphere of Islam. Nevertheless, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, one of the foremost scholars of Islam, in his article The Interior Life in Islam contends that Sufism is simply the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam. After nearly 30 years of the study of Sufism, I would say that in spite of its many variations and voluminous expressions, the essence of Sufi practice is quite simple. It is that the Sufi surrenders to God, in love, over and over; which involves embracing with love at each moment the content of one's consciousness (one's perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, as well as one's sense of self) as gifts of God or, more precisely, as manifestations of God.

The Sufi, therefore, is one who has discarded all that does not belong to his innermost self, and who has cultivated the garden of the heart, for there is no other place where wisdom grows. The Sufi sees the Divine Presence reflected in all names and forms, and is limited by none. Knowing that no man-made distinction can contain the One Being, the Sufi offers sincere respect to all forms of worship, while ever striving to be free of dogmatic limitation.

        Sufi Islam
        The term "Sufi" derives from three Arabic letters sa, wa and fa. There have been many opinions on the reason for its origin from sa wa fa. The most frequently cited in Western dictionnaries suggests the Arabic word "suf" meaning "wool" in the sense of "cloak", referring to the simple cloaks the original Sufis wore. Some initiates are given a specially designed, colored wool vest which is symbolic of the woolen robes of poverty worn by ancient dervishes, and signifies the loving commitment of the dervish to serve humanity. The Sufis use letters of words to express hidden meanings, and so the word could also be understood as "enlightenment". According to some the word is derived from safa which means purity. According to another view it is derived from the Arabic verb safwe which means "those who are selected" - a meaning quoted frequently in Sufi literature. The problem with understanding Sufism, is thus illustrated by the diversity of possible derivations of the word itself. There are many different Sufi movements, and many dimensions of Sufism. Although frequently characterized as the mystical component of Islam, there are also "Folklorist" Sufis, and the "Traditional" Sufis.

Niyaz Sufi Music Overview: "Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened," noted the great Sufi mystic Jalaluddin Rumi in the 13th century. "Don't open the door to the study and begin reading," he writes. Instead, "Take down a musical instrument. Let the beauty we love be what we do." Sufism is the mystical and ancient branch of Islam that emphasizes the seeker's path toward ecstatic unity with God. This path is opulently embroidered with many means to "remembering God," or dhikr (also transliterated as zhikr ), including chanting the names of God, prayer, meditation, poetry, Qur'anic recitation, praise and music. While "orthodox" Islam looks down on music, many Sufi traditions seek to utilize its emotive and communal power towards the goal of dhikr. Frequently, a spiritual leader or sheikh (called a pir in certain languages) will lead disciples in these practices in communal rites of remembrance. One central form of group dhikr is called sama' . While sama' literally means "listening," it has the connotation of a spiritual concert of sacred music, often with dance.

The path of the Sufi is a journey that draws us into longing and ecstasy, into the passion and power that is within the heart. This love that is awakened in the heart also belongs to the core of creation, and is our greatest gift to life. The heart contains the deepest secret of creation and the mystery of our love. When we sing the song of the heart we bring together the inner and outer worlds, and infuse our love for God into every moment of the day, into every atom and every thought. We help the world come alive with love.

    The Station of Love and the Attributes of Allah's Love for the Slave
    As-salāmu alaykum wa ra matu-llāh wa bārakatuhu. I greet you out of the bottom of my heart and I ask Allāh, glory be to Him. I thank Allāh that He brought me again to you so that I may continue to give as I am ordered to give by Allāh. I ask Allah that you may open your hearts , your hearing, and your spirits to the divine words that will emerge from Allāh through my tongue,
    because these instructions and commands are not from me, but they are from Allah. I ask that He provide you with all you need. I ask Allah to achieve peace, security, mercy, justice, freedom,
    and peace for the entire world. I ask that He may provide every good for humanity. Even these poor birds are not secure from the evil of humanity. They are chased away or killed. Even fish in the sea and animals in the forest are not safe from human beings. What makes me cry day and night is seeing children cry in the streets and watching people suffer. It makes me cry to see people whose houses have been destroyed, whose properties have been taken from them, and whose children have been killed without right. I cry when I see daughters and girls who are deprived of love and have been betrayed by their husbands. This is what we do not want. We seek to bring our message to people and distribute it among them, so that we may achieve mercy and justice, and so that they may carry the message of truth. Allāh says:
