Dear respected Shaykh, assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. What is your opinion regarding Tasawwuf?

Praise be to Allah, and may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family and his companions.

Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

As to what follows:

In response to your question, we say:

Tasawwuf has several levels and paths. Among them are those related to giving special attention to right conduct, manners and striving hard in worship without straying away from the Prophetic Guidance. So this is not outside of the Sunnah, and it was what the predecessors from among the worshippers were upon, such as Junayd, Fudayl bin `Iyad and others like them from among the People of Knowledge who were known for their worship. Other than this path from the paths of Tasawwuf, they are not free of newly-invented matters and innovations. Their levels vary in how far and close they are to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

 What I advise my Muslim brothers with is that they should strive upon the guidance of the Prophet (peace be upon him), for the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad (peace be upon him), as he used to repeatedly say in his sermons. In the hadith of Jabir bin `Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him and his father), when the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to deliver a sermon, he would say, “To proceed: The best of speech is the Book of Allah and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad. The worst of matters are the newly-invented ones and every innovation is a misguidance.” [Muslim (867)]

Your brother,

Dr. Khalid al-Muslih
