Tasawwuf is the purification of the heart from immoral habits in accordance with the will, to obtain eternal happiness and peace, to reach out to the level of maturation in morality through saving the heart from negative behaviour. Contemporary Muslim scholars consider reconstructing the definition of Tasawwuf and highlight it's essentiality for our life. Since monasticism was not the subject of classical Tasawwuf, there was no problem in its definition. According to them the goal of Tasawwuf is to live Islam with Ihsān, and join the community actively, share experience and knowledge, and help the others to encourage for establishing the peace in the society. In order to demystifying individuals who are internalizing the regulations of Tasawwuf, should be comprehended through the contemporary society in the World. The Muslim is someone who trusts, promises safety to his surrounding, and possess interrelated colourful differences in harmony. He evaluates him based on contributions to the well beings of others. His concentration is always on ‘We’ rather than ‘I’. In this description, the Muslims become a negotiator of ‘positive action’ and nothing can prevent him from acting and contributing to the community positively. In this study we are going to re-define the meaning of spiritual life in accordance with the Qur’an and Sunnah, and identify the problems of misunderstandings and practices of Tasawwuf.
CONCLUSION As a conclusion, many significant works and books regarding Sufism were created by the Sufi scholars of that time and some of those prominent scholars were renowned as the founders of the great Sufi orders. One of the key factors for Sufism to be accepted by many people was the influence of the political and social atmospheres. On one hand, the formation of Sufi orders through the process of people’s increasing interest towards them, and on the other hand, the science of Sufism that developed and enriched over many centuries required to be channeled in a certain direction and discipline the rules and regulations concerning proper conduct and good nature. 12 During that age, for the first time in the history of Sufism, prominent Sufi scholars and leading figures of Sufi orders began to be involved in stabilizing the government as an ideological power and authority. TaÎawwuf, as the content, became a science that is away from “shatafāt”, in the frame of Ahl al-Sunnah and tightly connected to Qur’an and Sunnah. It was under the spiritual influence of Sufis like İmam AbË ×amid Ghazālī and Khawājah YËsuf Hamadānī who emphasized “ØaÍw” and “Tamkīn”. At the same time, they have shown the path to be “Insān Kāmil” (complete human) for the modern man who approves every way permissible to reach and satisfy the desires of the nafs, and get confused under the pressure of never ending desires and wishes. In addition, we can say that in accordance with the mystery of the expression “man lam yadhuq lam ya’rif” (can’t know without tasting), those who do not follow the Sufi path should not criticize followers of the Sufi path, not to open the door of criticism, and not to make conclusions on secrets that they have not experienced. Also those who are in the path of Ïarīqah, should know that Sharīʿah is the essence, and Tarīqah is fruit and value of Tasawwuf
