And Abu 'Amr Dimashqi says: Al-tasawwuf ru'yat al-known, bi-ayn al-naqs, bal ghadd al-tarf 'an al-known, "Sufiism is: to see the imperfection of the phenomenal world (and this shows that human attributes are still existent), nay, to shut the eye to the phenomenal world" (and this shows that human attributes are annihilated; because the objects of sight are phenomena, and when phenomena disappear, sight also disappers).

Historically, Muslims have used the Arabic word taṣawwuf to identify the practice of Sufis. [1] Mainstream scholars of Islam define Tasawwuf or Sufism as the name for the inner or esoteric dimension of Islam [14] which is supported and complemented by outward or exoteric practices of Islam, such as Sharia. [15] In this view, "it is absolutely necessary to be a Muslim" to be a true Sufi, because Sufism's "methods are inoperative without" Muslim "affiliation". [16] [17] However, Islamic scholars themselves are not by any means in agreement about the meaning of the word "sufi". [18] Sufis themselves claim that Tasawwuf is an aspect of Islam similar to Sharia, [1] inseparable from Islam and an integral part of Islamic belief and practice. [19] Classical Sufi scholars have defined Tasawwuf as "a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God". [20] Traditional Sufis such as Bayazid Bastami, Rumi, Haji Bektash Veli, Junayd of Baghdad, and Al-Ghazali, define Sufism as purely based upon the tenets of Islam and the teachings of Muhammad. [18] [21] [22] [23] Two origins of the word sufi have been suggested.
