Sufism is a path to Allah that is directly connected to Islam, the two cannot be seperated. WHen we say sufism, the connotation is muslims who are developing their inward selves as a way to connect to God, using means that are accepted in Islam in terms of the Shariah.

Thank You Andulas for above statement.

Sufism is the heart of islam, it is the spiritual side, the estoric of islam.

I like the subject of sufism, nausheen and I had many enjoyable discussions on it in the past, along with a few others and then there were those few who came in and said that sufism is not islam and such but nausheen and i would interject them ;-)

I would be happy to discuss the topic further if you would like. This is also a favorite of mine, and I wish I spent more time in relfection of my Creator.

Perhaps i will re-post my discussions on sufism
