Answer 1

Surfism is an Islamic concept which the followers are seeking

for divine truth and love though a direct encounter with the God.

This arose in the mid-18th and 19th century C.E.

Answer 2

Sufism is branch of Islam that is more concerned with an

emotional connection to God than an emphasis on legal doctrines.

Sufis do not emphasize Islamic law and are much more interested in

loving God and devoting themselves to seeing higher-meanings in

sacred texts. They also seek to replicate the relationships that

other now-dead Sufi Scholars had with the Divine, which is why they

pray near the physicality of the dead Saint (i.e. at his tomb).

Sufism advances the beliefs of Islam in a looser and more emotional

way than traditional Islam.
