Description from the publisher:
The study does not only discuss the subject of Tassawwuf ?and its objectives; but boldly lays bare its positive and negative aspects. ?Tasawwuf; ?is an established tradition and a significant development in Islamic thought. The author concludes that even though the goals and objectives of ?tasawwuf ?are nothing but the core; essence; and spirit of Islam; yet during the course of Muslim history; ?Sufi ?thought and practice has significantly deviated from the prophetic model in terms of the exact methodology to attain these objectives.
