Because Sufism is about peace, spirituality and closeness to God which is what Islam is all about. Conclusion: Islam is Sufism and Sufism is Islam.
"Sufism" is the correct term for the mystical tradition of Islam.
Sufism started with Islam, as it is at the core of Islamic teachings ie. peace, love, spirituality and closeness with God. It never became separate from mainstream Islam, but deviant sects of Islam often reject it. It should be noted that Sunni Islam is the true original way of Islam, and all Sunni Muslims accept Sufism as part of their religion. Tariqas started from different Companions of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) who each preached the ways of Islam to others, and this knowledge was then passed down from generation to generation, forming a chain or Tariqa.
