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.
