As salaam mu alai kum Mufti. My questions relates to Sufism. I often meet people these days that say they are sufi. The little i know and the little reading i have done up on the subject is that Sufism is one of the highest spiritual orders in Islam. Only real special friends of Allah have been included in this order or have become a sufi. When i observe these so called “sufis’ i have noticed something, dancing, drinking and sometimes womanizing are the order of the day. When i question them and say that’s not sufism they turn around and say, do some reading, one will find Rumi for example used to drink. I reply and say, well that was most probably was before Allah had granted guidance. they turn around and say, well look at Turkey, many sufis came from there and Dancing was the order of the day. The turks even went as far as to have men dress with skirts and dance i am at a lost as to how to reply. They also look at India, qawalie, singing, dancing was part of the order.
