Who Are Sufis?

The word Sufi originates from the Arabic term Sūf, or wool, attributing to the cloaks worn by Muslim ascetics. Sufis are Orthodox Muslims who follow the science of Tasawwuf. Sufis connect themselves with a guide, and by this, are able to trace a direct chain of teachers back to the Beloved Prophet Muhammadﷺ, the leader and prime spiritual guide.

Sufis strive for perfection of worship (Ihsaan), which is to worship Allahﷻ in complete submission and fully conscious of His presence. As part of their worship and obedience to Allahﷻ, Sufis are devoted to serving humanity and love of all of Allah’s creation. Thus, Sufi Community Center bases its foundation upon these beautiful principles of love, humility, service, togetherness, and equality.
