The Purpose of the Sufi Movement

What is sufism?

Sufism means wisdom. It is not a religion or cult. It is a spiritual attitude that helps us overcome our limitations. Sufism is mostly known as an aspect of Islamic mysticism and poetry. The Indian Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan modernized this tradition into a universal message for our time; a message of love, harmony and beauty.
