Most of these false hadiths can easily be dismissed even by a modern arab speaking person. it seems to me that this entire thread misses the principles of sufism entirely. similar to tao... the sufism that can be explained is not sufism, as many who have studied the many aspects of sufism know... it is in the tasting, not in the describing. sufism is the sharia... but the sharia is not sufism, shamanism is sufism, but sufis is not shamanism. indeed... salaat is a moving meditation, with controlled breathing and focused thoughts while chanting payers... so is tai chi, if one does it correctly, so is the universal dance of peace and whirling. la ilaha illa allah... there is nothing to worship... there is only allah. why so much time debating mental artifacts and concepts that only exist in our minds, if we strip them of our "attachments" what remains... absolutely nothing. there is one universal truth/reality... it is beyond form, words, mental concepts, time, etc.... these things are all clues we reach towards in an attempt to experience the reality, past our limited concepts and being. suratul al'ikhlas says it most beautifully and simply, "say hu allah is one...hu begets not, nor is hu begotten". when we lose sight of the one message given to us by all of the prophets and rishis, then we lose sight of reality... the one absolute "being" is the only reality/truth... all of these labels and forms we hold onto are "willful" attempts at independent existence... all of them are illusions. this of course remains my opinion to all who have yet to taste! the essence of sufism. crush that grape! there's wine waiting to be tasted, ecstasy to be... experienced! when i stopped needing to define myself by concepts i noticed myself in everything. the qur'an doesn't say anything that the rg veda doesn't say... just a different time different language, different ways of expressing the same reality. the same holds true for all of the sacred scriptures. one reality is being explained, there are as many ways to explain it as there are created beings. have we ever let go of what we think being human is long enough so that a tree can show us the secret of breath and respiration, or the ocean show us the rythmn of our pulse... ever ate your food outside, mindfully and allowed the sun to show you how to mauntain digestive fire? muhammad was told to follow the religion of abraham, yet he is seemingly raised above all prophets [a practice the qur'an explicitly forbids]. why? becasue human beings have a tendency to accept what makes them feel good about the ideas they have attached to themselves to give definition to an illusion, they dismiss all ideas that do not reinforce their selfmade mythos. if we dismiss all of the religions and spiritual traditions does allah/absolute reality cease to exist. the light of truth and luv has shone through the windoes of our awareness... why are discussing the colors and reflective surfaces, when we could be sharing the experience of the... light, the... luv. what exists independent f this light and luv... why do we insist on creating false barriers in our perceptions? often it is the search... that becomes the barrier... the creator placed the answers witihn... why are we still looking in the wrong directions?
