Sufism

Parent Category: Islam
Sufism is a mystical branch of Islam, eschewing the dogmatic approaches of traditional Sunni, Shiite, and Ibadi Jurisprudence for a love-based relationship with God and meditations on that connection. Most Sufi Elders lived in poverty and closely with the people, leading to many of them being called "saints" by the communities in which they lived.
